Gerald McCoy Is Planning An All-Defense Dinner

November 7th, 2018

Bonding over food can help fix a struggling NFL team unit.

Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins sure believed that during his Bucs days, and now Gerald McCoy is talking about the same thing.

Tampa Bay’s offensive line was dreadful during their 2-14 campaign back in 2014. From left to right, Anthony Collins, Mankins, Evan Smith, Patrick Omameh and Demar Dotson, struggled and struggled.

Mankins sat down with ESPN as the miserable season ended and told Boston scribe Jackie MacMullen it was too hard for him to bond properly with his fellow Bucs linemen, in part, because he didn’t have a homey barbecue venue. So they could all hang out and grill and bond.

Yeah, that was the problem!

Joe never quite got over that.

On Monday, McCoy was talking to local reporters about how the defense is planning an all-defense dinner this week because it’s time and they need to do it and have yet to do it this season. “We just need to talk, man,” McCoy said.

You can see what McCoy’s talking about at the 5:20 mark of this video.

    This team could not get any softer…..

  2. Reality-is-a-Beotch Says:

    this guy is a complete joke and a total embarrassment to masculine men everywhere.

    I am sure chucky cheese will throw a nice party for the soft doll playing clowns that are the bucs defensive unit.

  3. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Will there be ‘smores?

  4. ChanEpic Says:

    Can the entre’ rush the passer? If not, who cares? The time for talking was in the off-season, not mid-season. Talk is cheap AF.

  5. Lamarcus Says:

    I’m a huge anti GMC guy but he is down already…… So I’m not gonna bash you

    Just order the Legarrett Blount ” Hammer hocks and black eyed rice” dish

  6. Eric Says:

    they are pro bowlers at talking.

  7. Marine Buc Says:

    I’m sure they will all be eating soy burgers.

  8. ChanEpic Says:

    Bruce Irvin, Falcons Agree to 1-Year Contract After Raiders Release – And the Bucs still suck.

  9. bucsnole Says:

  11. Joe Blahak Says:

    Soft Ice Cream for dessert…

  12. AKickInTheBucNuts Says:

    LOL! I can see it now…

    McCoy lines up and says: ” Hey guys, let’s sack the QB this play, just remember that burger we ate together last week and it’ll give us the smarts and strength to get him”

    The rest of the defense says: “By golly gee, you’re right! I feel stronger already and E=Mc2.”

    WoW! This is the leadership that has finally been bestowed on Gerald.

  13. 813bucboi Says:

    they shouldve done this after the steelers game….lol….and can dirk join them because he know nothing about defenses which is embarrassing as an HC…..


    glazers told licht, we’ll let the new GM and HC wheel and deal from here on out….start looking for U-HAUL’s along with dirk!!!!!!!!


  14. Dusthty Rhothdes Says:

    The conversations will be entirely confusing to everyone there and Im sure the meals will have to be horrible because they cannot tackle anything good

  15. Eric Says:

    dont they eat together at obp?

  16. Eric Says:

    “ok we better pretend like we want to play so we can get some contracts and coast as usual next year”

    pass the salt please.

  17. Kevin Says:

    Good idea!

  18. BigHogHaynes Says:

    Nothing here! Eating dinner together will not change the X’s and O’s of football or your teams scheme or poor coaching!!

  19. Bucnjim Says:

    The excuses are running low we need to brain storm to find a few more.
    Let’s see:The sun, the wind, the rain, the heat, the cold, the grass, might as well keep it all natural.

  20. Buc believer Says:

    Anything ANYTHING to get his name out in the spotlight. Dude goes dark for two weeks and then NEEDS age actually CRAVES his name in the spotlight again so he does this. Bet he will want to go to his favorite place… Chuck E Cheese.

  21. ATrain Says:

    Thank God we know GMC can afford it

    Also if someone drinks to much GMC will pick you up when you fall

  22. thee good ol'e days Says:

    and 3-2-1 right on cue, GMC thee so called leader of the most dreadful defense, this team, and possibly the league has ever seen, suddenly gives a rat’s ass about their standings and legacy this unit is going to be labeled with, newsflash for ya gerald, your lack of production and leadership skills has been exposed, and after close to ten seasons, and at the age of thirty, i think this club is ready to move on from your services, i can see the next regime blowing the roof off this defense and starting anew, with out the caped crusader, good bye, and enjoy the life of luxury that you half ass’d earned over your lack luster career

  23. thee good ol'e days Says:

    save a few bucks this unit deserves dinty moore and spam sandwiches, eat up boys

  24. DB55 Says:

    You’re telling me they’re still hungry even after having to swallow their pride?

  25. Eric Says:

    u gonna finish that sweet potato pie?

  26. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Dude just stop lol

  27. Aceofaerospace Says:

    Hope they have a DJ so they can work on those dance moves. Also, serve up some w’s to eat.

  28. D1 Says:

    Sapp said McCoy is more I.interested in penetrating his wife than the offensive line. Calls Kwon a hamster and a pigeon.

    Sounds like it’s time for a barbecue.

  29. LakeLand Says:

    What will he be feeding them?

    “Courage Burgers or maybe some ‘Tackling Tacos”.

  30. El Buco Realisto Says:

    hmmmm You mean, firing coach Smitty did not solve the problem like the sheep said it would??????

    One day they will figure out that ice cream melts in Florida!!!!!!!!!!!

    Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  31. BigHogHaynes Says:

    Joe let the big hog speak

  32. ATLBucsfan Says:

    What a bunch of garbage! Get on the field and dominate…each and every one of them.

  33. Jameis Wienstien Says:

    Even if this could work , WHY WAIT UNTIL WEEK 9!?!?

  34. Bucsfanman Says:

    Realist- I’d hire Mike Smith back just to fire him AGAIN on principle!!! There’s no way you can defend the guy. He should’ve been fired in the offseason and everyone knows it!

  35. adam from ny Says:

    must be an early “the season is over” din din…then to the strip club to rub on some nanny & tatas 🙂 🙂

  36. Dooshlarue Says:

    Please be a goodbye dinner.

  37. adam from ny Says:

    sapp would bring the whole defense to mickey dees and only order food for himself…

    he’d walk around the table of hungry dudes and slap them all upside the head…

    and say: “no one is eating sheet but me!…you wanna eat mofos…eat a fuggin W on the field on sunday and man the fugg up”

  38. Duke Silver Says:

    We do not have an attitude problem on D and that is part of the problem. Someone has to get nasty! We can’t go all apologetic on a Qb right before we hit’em. We need some spit, fire, and vinegar on defense! We are soft!

  39. Rayjay1122 Says:

    Food?. They need prayer and fasting.

  40. Jimmyjr Says:

    So they can all eat toast together off the field too

  41. Kansas95Buc Says:

    @Adam from ny
    man I’d pay money to see that happen lmao

  42. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    Bucs defense can show up for dinner but not the first half!!!!

  43. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    fat softie

  44. 813bucboi Says:




  45. ChanEpic Says:

    LOL @ RayJay

  46. Issaic haggins Says:

    Gerald buying friendships and being nice doesn’t equate to balling your ass off and being a great football playing professional!!!
    As a matter of fact you and your actions over the years prove quite the contrary and provide an outlet of enabling and entitlement amongst the very men you think you are leading !!!

    Gerald come on Man !!! You know this you have been told this ( at the pro bowl, not being selected to top 100 not due to talent ) but your super self centered attention seeking ego really is a terrible terrible detriment to you team ( Numbers Don’t Lie ) and to think it doesn’t feed over to the offense and the rest of the team ,you would have to be brain malfunctoed!!! Make a play , kick someone’s ass , be aggressive and that will get better , quicker and more praised results than trying to be a comic superhero , nice guy !!! Trust me real football people/ fans hate you for your chronic pattsie ass side show and btw your peers don’t like it either !!! They have told you Dude!!! It’s Just Your ego just gets in the way of listening !!! Go be a preschool teacher and quit being a fake football player !!! I know it’s not intentional but for this team you are a cancer !!!

  47. Mike Johnson Says:

    The 2nd poster says GM is embarrassment to masculintiy everywhere. I’d pay to see you..say his face!

  48. Greg Says:

    GMC, after you`re done peeing, be a sweetie and wipe the seatee…oh wait, you have to squat to pee–never mind!

  49. gotbbucs Says:

    I cant recall a single player that I thought was even remotely close to being this annoying to me ever before.

    They’re half way through the season. Nothing will change the product on the field at this point. Nothing that’s happened off the field has done anything to change this team for the better since this pile joined the team. There’s not a single player on this team that demands enough respect from his teammates to hold all the others accountable. Nobody goes out there and puts All Pro film together that the others can look up to.

    There is so damn much talk and no production to back it up.

    Organization failure from top to bottom.

    The Last Supper

  51. jmarkbuc Says:

    Their Just Deserts…

  52. BigMacAttack Says:

    At this point try anything. Try everything. And don’t give up.

  53. Echase Says:

    They can celebrate the fact that they are the worst NFL defensive team in history.

  54. SOEbuc Says:


  55. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    I bet they can’t stop anyone from ordering seconds.

  56. Iamabuc Says:

    Somebody please, take away his “Man Card”…🤣

  57. adam from ny Says:

    if i was the restaurant, i would not let the worst defense in the history of the world in the doors to chow on sheet…

    i hear mike smith is going to be their makeshift surprise waiter…but of course he will screw up everyone’s orders because of heavy miscommunication issues…

    dirk will be valeting all the players cars and stealing all the loose change in the consoles, since he has bills to pay after the season…

    warren sapp will be creeping the lot, scratching his name on all the vehicles along with the number 99, while they enjoy the last supper…

    the glazers will be the guest kitchen chefs loading every players meal with extra visine in all courses…

    and licht will be the maitre d in his sweaty smelly ron burgundy sports coat…

    this should be interesting…and lead to a lot of comic book talk…

    *the joes gotta get in there as bus boy fill ins and act like flies on the wall*

    It’s hard to fake team camaraderie.
