“He Is Coaching”

June 14th, 2018

Addresses DL coach’s tirade.

We have all blown it out of proportion.

Bucs stud defensive tackle Gerald McCoy believes we all had it wrong. When WTVT-TV, Channel 13 multimedia journalist Jeff Tewksbury captured new defensive line coach Brentson Buckner unloading on GMC last week in underwear football practice, it appeared Buckner was fed up with GMC and thus read him the riot act.

No, no, no, GMC said. Buckner was coaching.

Today at One Buc Palace, GMC was asked about Buckner’s outburst and GMC stated he didn’t think anything of it.

“Y’all made a big deal out of nothing,” GMC insisted. “It is the NFL. What, am I not supposed to get coached? He was coaching. That’s what he’s paid to do. He has been given an assignment, and he is going to do his assignment to the best of his ability.

“That didn’t faze — I am a 30-year old man with five kids. Come on, man. I’ve been paying my own bills since I have been in college. You think a grown man yelling at me fazes me? He is coaching. Hear the message; not the tone. Y’all made a big deal out of it: ‘He’s yelling at Gerald.’ DUH! He’s a coach. That’s what he is supposed to do.

“So, what? It is hot outside. He’s shot. I’m hot. He is doing his job. I’m doing my job. You know what the reality is? If I don’t jump offsides, [the tongue-lashing] doesn’t happen. So everybody is making a big deal out of it. He’s supposed to coach. He is coaching.

“I was taught at an early age [to] hear the message not the tone. He was coaching. Get over it. So, what? This is football!”

It is good to see GMC’s attitude about that. A lot of veteran players, if they were on the receiving end of Buckner’s hollering, would have freaked out claiming Buckner dissed them.

As GMC rightly pointed out, if he didn’t jump offsides, Buckner doesn’t wig out.

    Maybe the Bucs should put in all the players contracts an abstinence clause, this could explain some players lack of energy.

    Cue the Donkeys who are gonna repeat the same thing they’re said a thousand times and secretly hope the Bucs D and the team isn’t successful because it would destroy their idiotic narrative about how you can’t win with him on the team and blah blah blah blah. Fire away Donkeys!

    all I can do is laugh……

    he’s right about the phrase tho…..hear the message not the tone…..my HS coach use to say that….he was a yeller too!!!….lol…


  7. Lamarcus Says:


    The message from the fans to win is but u don’t hear that either

  8. Mike Johnson Says:

    I luv Gerald. He’s not getting caught in that..media trap! Good for him. Reporters are always trying to get players to say things that will create controversy. GMC just..flaked it off his shoulders. Great job GMC!! Same with JPP not attending non-mandatory OTA’s. (Note the word..NON-MANDATORY)People tried to get him to bite. But he just said his piece and went about his way. I guess this is what drives our media. Hell, we ain’t winning so..fans gotta read bout somethin!!

    Ah shucks Gummy…….I feel so much better now.

  10. SB Says:

    5 kids?
    I have one boy and it is all I can take! I love him more than anything in the world but I couldn’t handle another one.

  11. Couch Fan Says:

    Strangers on the internet talking crap fazes him, why wouldnt a little bit of coaching? LMAO

  12. DB55 Says:

    The look on his face says he was fazed.

  13. EA Says:

    Hopefully it translates on gameday.

  14. DB55 Says:


    it would destroy their idiotic narrative about how you can’t win with him on the team
    It’s been 8 years son how much time does he need? Suh got to the P.O. under his rookie contract, so did Donald and Atkins and Short and Jarrett.

    That’s why he didn’t even make the top 100 bc even the players are seeing thru his weak as bs.

    To make matters worse he’s spreading the ice cream throughout the league. Koala ice pulled up to the Browns OTAs yesterday.


  15. Chris K Says:

    Donkey DB55 is rooting for McCoy and the Bucs to fail. Great fan!

  16. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    I would encourage everyone to watch GMCs presser…….it was over 16 minutes when the others were about 3 minutes….he answered all questions sometimes letting the press know how off base they were…..especially the discussion about “help for GMC”……he repeatedly told them that it is help for the team, not him.
    Watch it and you may have a newfound respect for GMC.

  17. BigMacAttack Says:

    Gerald sure does talk a lot. Talk is cheap and maybe it’s time to do your talking on the field.

  18. BigHogHaynes Says:

    I have never seen but one or two maybe three months D/Linemen lead their teams to the Playoffs!!!!!

  19. Mike Johnson Says:

    When a team is not winning, the local media Thrives on controversy or tries to start several. After all, they and you..get tired of hearing what great..Losers you are. When you are a winner, the local media concentrates on that. One day..Hopefully..we will become winners and set aside this..Childish gambino BullSh..!

  20. K2 Says:

    GMC was solid in that interview…one of his best!

  21. Buc believer Says:

    GMC….. “nothing to see here…. just coaches coaching.” Buckner….. “ Batman get your worthless garbage pansy ass back I. The lineup and do it right this time!!! Your eight years of fooling everyone is over! “

  22. BigMacAttack Says:

    I don’t think anyone here wants the Bucs to fail. I’m just tired of all of their talk year after year, followed by subpar execution on the field, both players and coaches. I still doubt that Gerald will stay healthy and make it past the first 4 games. And just because I’m sick of losing and sick of hearing his mouth doesn’t mean I’m not a fan or want them to lose. And just because I think the Bucs should have traded him when his value was high, means that I’m wrong. I hope he proves me wrong but in the meantime I wish he’d keep his mouth shut. Yeah yeah I know, I’m a hater because I dare criticize the Great Gerald McCoy. Another huge investment that has netted zero return.

    Good quote!

    I agree, but even though he didn’t like that sh1t, he won’t badmouth coach in front of press. Good! Internalize. Let that feeling fester and eat away at you and motivate you to prove people wrong.

    Go Bucs!!

  24. TampaTown Says:

    5 kids by 30? I know there’s a set of boy/girl twins in there but geez. Guess he’s not tired when he gets home.

  25. Buc50 Says:

    The best coach I ever had bitched and cussed us little kids out. I sure learned how to play baseball that year, we thought we had a bunch of misfits but we tore that league up.

  26. donuts Says:

    Nothing to see here…GMC is right…Buck is coaching.

  27. THETRUTH Says:

    It’s the guys who never played a game or been coached strongly before that make it a big deal. McCoy is right

  28. THETRUTH Says:

    Funny how we NOW complain about little things and pay attention to detail but when schiano stressed the discipline of toes on the line , which is football 101 they make fun of him. Than we have guys line up offsides and question where is the coaching.
