Gerald McCoy: “Don’t You Ever Question Me”

May 6th, 2019

Something got under Gerald McCoy’s skin.

Entering his 10th NFL season, McCoy is in a very bizarre spot. He is healthy and he can still play, yet the Bucs intentionally are acting publicly like they want nothing to do with him even though he’s still on the roster.

Team Glazer, apparently, has no issue with this ongoing perception game the Bucs brass is playing with a guy ownership chose to adorn on the stadium facade for several years. Perhaps there’s a well-thought-out reason for it all? Nah, Joe highly doubts that.

McCoy has been rather quiet lately, sharing training photos on social media and staying away from voluntary work at One Buc Palace. But McCoy got loud yesterday on Instagram.

Zac Blobner of WDAE-AM 620 caught a bitter and sweaty McCoy via the Twitter video below.

Joe’s not sure what to make of all this. The unassigned outrage and chest-pounding by McCoy feels like a very 9th-grade move.

McCoy has said previously that he has interest in acting after his football career. So perhaps he’s playing a role here. Or he’s really annoyed and can’t keep it quiet any longer.

    No trollmax yet? He must be cashing his social security check so he can go to the liquor store.

  2. Steven007 Says:

    That post by GMC was ready made for the trolls. Bad form regardless.

  3. Bruce Blahak Says:

    Good acting, fake news… I think “Softy” maybe tried to be like Lee Roy Selmon his whole career but unfortunately didn’t have near the talent, class or leadership involved in that role. “Sooner” he’s gone the better, end the madness!

  4. BFFL Says:

    Hopefully Browns buy it

  5. JL Says:

    GMC is finally growing some balls, it might be to late buddy..

  6. Alanbucsfan Says:

    No one likes uncertainty in their careers
    Is keeping McCoy at current salary worth cutting 3 other players?
    Is moving to another team for pride’s sake worth it to McCoy and family?

  7. Bruce Blahak Says:

    My post deleted? No curse words, just anti McCoy. Protecting the fake pro bowler now? ugh

  8. Tbbucs3 Says:

    Do it on the field.

  9. NOSBOS Says:

    What BFFL said.

  10. Bruce Blahak Says:

    @Tbbucs3…Exactly!…he always talks a mean game, so phony!

  11. Mort Says:

    For those criticizing him, why aren’t you also roasting JPP? Look, at least GMC isn’t running his own car off the road, he is putting in a bunch of work. Good.

  12. Colin Says:

    Lovin this post by McCoy. Maybe Arians is trying to create an angry version of McCoy. Seems to be working. Bring him back.

  13. Eric y Says:

    Lol every year this dude always talk tough… so sick of his antics

  14. Eric y Says:

    Sounds like him and arians is not gonna work out… sorry Gerald is right

  15. ATrain Says:


  16. Bruce Blahak Says:

    it all makes sense now…this weak minded player that fronted a weak minded team pays attention to stupid fan talk? Says it all right there. Soft as sh*t…..

  17. Eric y Says:

    Arians is not trying to create no angry McCoy … he speaks the truth … If a coach has to lie to get a player to play to his highest level there’s a problem

  18. tmaxcon Says:

    We don’t have to question her we have dance party videos and win loss record to prove that attempting to build a defense around cancer93 failed miserably.. time for the selfish crying clown to go away simple as that. He’s a proven me first career loser and the undisputed face of the basement years

  19. ATrain Says:

    Funny thing :

    Yesterday I was watching You Tube NFL videos Defense Talking

    MCCOY is on their Apologizing to Big Ben Hahah. And the announcer said He has never heard a Lineman apologize as the player was hitting the QB


  20. tmaxcon Says:

    Maybe if she was half as tough on the field as she is on Twitter she’d have a meaningful win or signature game over the last decade

  21. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    GMC can’t seem to win no matter what…..lay back and take it….labeled a wimp…..get outraged….labled a “9th grader”….

    Seems to me that GMC is definitely going to be traded or cut….but won’t be a Buc.

  22. passthebuc Says:

    This debacle has been nothing more than a waste of oxygen. Management is working under the law of supply and demand and the player, who knows it, still gets his pride tarnished. If his agent had any smarts, he would have pushed for a trade last year.

  23. OneBuc55 Says:

    Oh snap, it only took 10 years for his balls to drop…

    Talk is cheap though, may be to little too late…

  24. SCBucsFan Says:

    TBBF you are correct. This forum, and the guys who write the articles, are anti McCoy. He could donate his check to a battered womans shelter and people would complain it took his too long to do it. It’s the JBF forum’s way.

  25. Destinjohnny Says:

    Strong work 93 on doing what u are supposed to do

  26. TampaBay55 Says:


    Because of something called PRODUCTION…

  27. Bobby M. Says:

    The problem with McCoy at this stage in his career is his production is slipping….he’s injury prone….and his teammates simply don’t buy what he’s selling. If he were an alpha-dog for the defense, the Bucs could probably eat his contract for another year….but he’s just not that guy. You’ve got a changing of the guard with the new LB and Vea…The defense needs a new voice and McCoy seems butt hurt at the idea of not being the face anymore. Frankly I’ve got that impression from him since Winston came to town.

  28. 813bucboi Says:

    boo hoo GMC……LOL…..

    GO BUCS!!!!

  29. Snook Says:

    That’s the problem, Gerald!!! Try not taking plays off every game like you have since college. No one cares you’re sweaty in a gym on May 5th.

  30. Jean Lafitte Says:

    I got $13,000,000.00 million reasons why you ain’t working hard enough.

    Vea makes you irrelevant for a tenth the cost.

  31. D-Rome Says:

    I’m happy to see McCoy like this. It’s a refreshing change.

  32. tnew Says:

    That is a bad look.. But also a look like a player who has gotten because of great amazing talent over hard work.

    This reeks of a player who is being asked to take a play cut, but he feels his value is higher than everyone else has deemed it to be. If everyone in the league has an issue with his contract, then it might be out of scale.

  33. AlteredEgo Says: Your comment is awaiting moderation. Says:

    #market price…..

  34. Nick Says:

    The best new day in Tampa Bay. The Bucs trade or out right release Gerald McCoy today !!!

  35. Sam Ficarrotta Says:

    I dont get the hate for the guy. He has been my favorite Buc player of the last decade….not saying much I know…..but the guy has been a class act his entire career. 2 years ago multiple teams made it known they have to gameplan around 93. Yeah he has slipped a bit in the last year but 10 years in the trenches…at the nfl level…thats a grind man.. I think this is all a motivational thing for the bucs and perhaps trying to get him to renegotiate to a more cap friendly deal. Everyone on here was clammering for us to sign suh last year.. Seems like they ended up pretty close and 93 had 2 less games due to injury.

  36. DooshLaRue Says:

    Hey Softie……

    Don’t make me laugh.

  37. Buccin T Says:

    Let me see a 10 sack season. Hell let me see 5 and I might believe ya… 😂

  38. Defense Rules Says:

    A-TRAIN … If you or I were in GMC’s shoes given the contract situation he’s in, I bet neither of us would be at One Buc Palace either. Too much to lose without a firm commitment from the Bucs. Example: Tear an ACL or something similar & what other team would sign him then?

    Bucs have treated him poorly throughout this debacle IMO, and that’s on GM Jason Licht far as I’m concerned. I’d be annoyed too if I were GMC. I still think however that odds are better than 50-50 that McCoy is a Buc this year. Without him, we’ve got Vea, Allen & Beckner in the center of our DLine, and the first two didn’t generate that much last year in terms of sacks, TFLs & QB Hits.

    BTW Joe, been anxiously waiting to hear something … anything … about how JPP is doing after his accident. Why hasn’t the media followed up on that? Too reminiscent of hearing next to nothing about how Beckwith’s recovery has been coming along.

  39. 2002WasALongTimeAgo Says:

    I was born a Sooner, and have enjoyed Gerald’s career. He seems to have forgotten the wisdom of Will Rogers who said, “Never pass up a good chance to shut up!”

  40. Phillip Says:

    Why do the people who comment here feel like they need to have a gimmick? They hoping to get noticed or put all pro troll on their resume? Seriously BN wouldn’t allow half of these ding dongs on the site for more than a day. Mix most of these articles with their rules on commenting and it would be a much better experience.

    Restructure GMC and give him a 3 year deal that pays him more guaranteed that’s spread out. Let him retire a Buc and be an extremely rare 1 team player for his career. Get him in positions to succeed on this line and rotate more to keep him fresh

  41. Marine Buc Says:

    McCoy will look great in a Cleveland Browns uniform. Let’s please make that happen soon…

    He could donate his check to a battered womans shelter and people would complain it took his too long to do it. It’s the JBF forum’s way.

    his job is to win games the good in the community and donating to BS charities is meaningless fluff losers use to defend this failure..

    i’d be more impressed if you donated 5.00 to the cancer society than some athlete during an organized PR stunt with a camera crew donating 10K…

  43. Lamarcus Says:

    GMC is a garbage player. He can’t talk crap he is too soft for that.

  44. pelbuc Says:

    Look, whatever you may think of GMC, it’s just time to cut ties. Bucs can probably get an equal DT for half his price. Plus, we all know GMC and Kwon did little to improve the defense and the other players other than some sideline dance moves. GMC was a good player that had a tendency to disappear in crunchtime.

  45. Architek79 Says:

    Not a winner or leader. Great guy and spokesman.

    Pass….move on

  46. vikingdand Says:

    Hey, I feel for McCoy. I’d love to have him back with this attitude. He is a solid player that works hard. We need guys like him. He is not the best DT in the league. He is solid. Let’s just call it what it is and go forward. I think it is in poor taste to critique his commitment, work ethic, or sacrifice. Those are all things that we, as internet readers, can not judge. It makes no sense to tear down current players on our team. We definitely need the best 53 to suit up and play, and GMC is clearly in that 53. Let’s get his salary reworked in a way that is a win-win for the Bucs and GMC, and lets see how we feel about GMC after a season or two of winning football.

  47. Totally Exonerated Says:

    I don’t question your love for football, Gerald. That was on full display for everyone to see how much fun you had during the Capital Collapse. What I question is your love for wins. Lets just say you don’t have to worry that you’re so hungry for wins that you look silly eating finger Ws

  48. Chris Simms 2020 GM Says:

    The correct move right now for Gump and the Bucs is…..nothing.

    Do nothing, say nothing, do not even blink.

    Luckily Gump is frozen with fear and trepidation might make the correct non-move by accident.

    Fire Licht tonight.

  49. QUE589 Says:

    Talking tough on a gym workout video but not dominant on field in game-time situations. Just don’t get it.

  50. Lord Cornelius Says:

    Literally no one is questioning any of these things.. People aren’t worried about McCoy drinking / not working out / not caring about football.

    It’s more so questions about $13M salary for a 30+ year old DT who has declining production and is not an obvious scheme fit
    It’s more so questions about him seemingly being pretty content with losing / not ever being part of a culture change or dominant D as a leader.

    Fans gravitated to Kwon because Kwon HATED losing and was vocal about it early on. Same with guys like Ayers or JPP. I want that out of everyone on the defense.

  51. Yeogib Says:

    Blah blah blah. For as consistent as he is with this bs you’d think he’d make more of a difference on the field.

  52. bucsfaninchina Says:

    Can’t blame him. Antonio Brown did the same thing and look and him now – got off the Steelers and is getting PAID, just what he wanted.

  53. bucsfaninchina Says:

    @Lord Cornelius great points

  54. jvest Says:

    Why would you choose to insult Joe like this? … Also, should Joe not share what Gerald McCoy is sharing, presumably because he wants everyone to see it? C’mon. –Joe

  55. Todd Says:

    Rumor has it that there’s been a bit of constipation going on at One Buc.

    A big Bowles movement is bound to drip this Thursday/Friday.

  56. Todd Says:


  57. jvest Says:

    per PFF “Gerald McCoy has been our highest graded pass rusher at DT in each of the past 2 seasons, registering 125 pressures.” But yea no use to us at all lets just dump him for free, at this point I hope he leaves this sorry franchise and goes somewhere that will actually give him better then practice team quality line mates. Team run by morons who care more about soccer, in a town full of people born everywhere but Tampa, with the most un-educated fan base I have ever met, being a Bucs/Rays fan is a lot easier out here on the west coast, I don’t have to make up for how stupid my fellow fans make me look

  58. Reach87 Says:

    I’ve said it before. Great player over the years whose production has slipped but can still play, is still a great team mate and gentleman who grinds. For those calling him soft, I can only laugh. You have no clue on what it takes to play DT in the NFL. Calling him as soft or a “her” is easy to do behind a fake name and keyboard. Classless, ignorant and cowardly. Sad. Go Bucs!

  59. Adrnagy Says:

    it’s going to be what Bowles wants.New head coach want his QB. Bowles got his with white plus most draft pick at defense.Bowles shaping the defense with his type of guys. For GMC … I hope he regains his attack mode and stays. We don’t have depth at DT. Or release and sign suh on a friendly one year.

  60. jvest Says:

    Lol nice delete joe, nothing wrong in the post but it doesn’t fit you click bait narrative, thanks for giving me the final push away this website has been letting me down for about 4 years now, peace click bait city and mccoy haters, time to find real bucs content

  61. T REX Says:

    We have the worst fans in all of sports. Worship that w eating loser and attack mccoy. Gooberville.

  62. Jvest Says:

    Joe let’s sexist comments, comments that are meant as nothing but a personal attack on a real mans character, but when someone calls out this forum and comment thread for what it is, joe has to intercede because clicks are money and that’s whats it important not a quality community or good content

  63. El Buco Realisto Says:

    The questions were answered long ago!!!!!!!!! Even most of the sheep now know!!!!!!!!!! She should have been traded after the 2016 season!!!!!!! After throwing her tantrum about playing in a hybrid scheme that was not featuring Her!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ice cream melts in Florida every time!!!!!!!!!!

    2019 will reveal answers to the sheep, that the “real” fans already know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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

  64. MIKE Says:


  65. #1bucsfan Says:

    Thanks for all your effort idc what anybody says this dude has played hard for a long time I don’t see any haters lining up in his pos. Or even on a pee wee squad talk is easy for you haters now let’s see y’all go out there an play his pos. You cut McCoy it hen who replaces him Allen vea plzz McCoy is still better vea has a long way to go before he is called elite McCoy has bin elite for a long time y’all don’t make sense cutting this guy

  66. Mike Johnson Says:

    Thats the spirit GMC. Give’em a taste of the cold steel. Put in your work. I personally luv this video. Give’em hell GMC!!!

  67. donuts Says:

    We have seen this song and dance before. He has said it before. The film does not lie GMC. Your stats are not 5 million let alone 13. Bucs should just release him unless that Duke trade is in play, which I think it is not or it would have come to fruition by now.

  68. tmaxcon Says:

    the sheep love them some career losers making excuses left and right but totally ignored you hero captained some of the worst defenses in NFL history

    you guys talk about everything but what matters.. and that is WINS. the dude is not a leader nor a winner…. being good int he community and showing up on time does not make one great nor a keeper…. they are sports entertainers paid to win. NOT raise your stupid kids or be role models. Parents and teachers should be role models becuaee very few little johnnies will every see the nfl… you people are hilarious but not as hilarious as this franchise.

    I’ll say it again, i’d be more impressed if you donated 5.00 to the cancer society than some me first athlete camera hound like cancer93 donating time or money during an organized team PR stunt with a camera crew

    you guys love fluff but run away from substance.

  69. FatBoiBucsFan Says:

    GMC must have been reading the JBF comment section, years of tmax and bucsrealist posts have finally shattered him

  70. tmaxcon Says:


    93 was born mentally weak. If a comment section bothers any fan or player they have far bigger issues to deal with and have no place outside of thier safespace much less attempting to accept reality

  71. Buccfan305 Says:

    10 years to late!!!

  72. Jim Says:

    Whatever it takes to get motivated, btw, who questioned him?
