“Good For McCoy”

June 24th, 2019

National scribe has his back.

A prominent and respected NFL scribe wagged a finger at the Bucs this morning.

In short, the Bucs should be ashamed of themselves for the way they have dissed former Bucs stud defensive tackle Gerald McCoy.

Who wrote that? Well-plugged in Albert Breer, the chieftain of theMMQB.com.

Breer noted that not only is GMC correct that the Bucs slapped one of the better defensive tackles the team has ever had publicly in the face by giving Ndamukong Suh his No. 93, but Breer applauded GMC spoke out on national television about the insult.

Last week GMC appeared on “Undisputed,” seen nationally on FS1 and was miffed about how the Bucs handed out his number to Suh, who is only on a one-year pact. Co-host Skip Bayless considered the move “offensive.”

Breer seems to agree, so he typed this morning.

I have two thoughts on it. One, good for McCoy, being honest about how he feels. As a 10-year vet, he’s earned the right to call someone out if he sees fit, and I think we’d all love it players spoke their minds more often. Two, he’s right. The Bucs didn’t need to retire McCoy’s number. But he was a good enough player for a long enough time for the team to take it out of circulation for a year. The body wasn’t even cold yet.

This is the way Joe looks at it: GMC was a good player for the Bucs. Folks who deny that also have the walls of their bedrooms lined with aluminum foil to try to block the gamma rays from seeping into their homes, which allows both Google and the Martians to spy on their private moments.

The same anti-GMC cult also can be seen ducking under trees constantly to hide from the black helicopters hovering above, sort of like when Henry and Karen were convinced they were being tailed by aircraft manned by the FBI in “Goodfellas.”

But as players always say, the NFL is a business. If it is a business, why take personal offense if someone else wears your number? Hell, Joe remembers scrubs wearing Dick Butkus’ No. 51 before the Bears retired that number. That, frankly, was more insulting to NFL fans than it may have been to Butkus.

Joe thinks GMC is a damn good player but he’s no Dick Butkus! Joe doesn’t remember Butkus going on national TV whining about it, either. (Butkus likely wouldn’t whine about a damned thing.)

GMC cited how the Bucs did not give out numbers of the Bucs’ greats after they left such as Ronde Barber, John Lynch, you name it. The difference? Those guys are icons in this organization and are seriously spoken about in sober terms as Hall of Fame players for a team that won a championship.

Joe thinks GMC is (was?) a good player but it’s a big-time stretch to consider him Hall of Fame material. Let’s not get carried away here.

If the NFL is a business as players often say, then don’t let trivial matters like this get to you personally.

(And for the folks who will scold Joe for — all together now — GMC is a Panthers player so quit writing about him. Well, Joe will respond as soon as one of the better defensive tackles in Bucs history quits making news that is directly related to the Bucs, then Joe will quit writing about him. Joe does not snooze on Bucs news or take days-long siestas. That’s for lesser outfits.)

    Albert Breer….blah blah blah.

    As for “number gate” Suh has worn 93 his entire career, and it was not in use for the Bucs, so what’s the big F’n deal?

  2. Totally Exonerated Says:

    GMC might not have gave up his number for someone else but I bet he’d happily kowtow and give Cam his seat on plane.

  3. DB55 Says:

    If McIceCream feels so strongly about why don’t he fight Suh for the number?


    I’d pay good money to see that!!!!!

  4. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:

    If he didn’t want the number used by a higher paid player he should’ve accepted a pay cut to stay here but he declined to take less here and took less to play with a divisional foe

    He was good just not good enough to be a good leader or elevate the play of his teammates

  5. DB55 Says:

    A back-up RB wears #34 for the Raiders. If that’s not a crime idk what is

  6. DB55 Says:

    took less to play with a divisional foe
    If that don’t tell you everything you need to know about softie McIceCream.

  7. DB55 Says:

    Word on the street is that many of the McIceCream haters finally got out of moderation Bc McIceCream got cut.

  8. Mort Says:

    Yes it’s a bit disrespectful, and no, I don’t care That much. It would’ve been disrespectful to not allow Suh to wear it either. Neither is a hall of famer so I don’t know what the big deal is. People wear 97, and that’s the same level of garbage as this. I care, but not enough.

  9. FrankPillow Says:

    If he was as impactful a player as he is a whiner, this wouldn’t be an issue…But in Geraldini’s mind, it’s much, much easier to look in the mirror and see a victim. Sure, under normal circumstances #93 might’ve been taken out of circulation- but if that’s the #Suh wanted and that’s what it took to get him here, you give it to him and don’t look back.

  10. DB55 Says:

    Rumor has it that McIceCream said he would only make 1 tackle per game unless that haters were banned

  11. DB55 Says:

    The body wasn’t even cold yet.
    True! You have to wait until the second half specifically the 4th qrt for the body to be cold then melt. #McIceCream

  12. LargoBuc Says:

    If the #47 hasn’t been retired yet, or #97 than McFake needs to shut his mouth. Those 2 did way more for this organization than he ever did.

  13. Charlie Says:

    Am I the only one tired of hearing about players on other teams?

  14. DB55 Says:

    Am I the only one tired of hearing about players on other teams?
    Nope! Especially twinkle toes McIceCream.

  15. DB55 Says:

    McIceCream’s jersey belongs with the best! Therefore Bern’s Steakhouse has decide to put it in their dessert room, allegedly.

  16. AceOfAerospace Says:

    Oh goodie. Another story about a former Buc. I wonder what Alvin Harper’s doing these days.

  17. Dlavid Says:

    Please …. can JBF get over it already ? McCoy was fine player but he resided as Captain and face of the franchise . A franchise that is defined by JBF staff as a “ list decade “ ! The den of depression , the sorriest D in history of NFL last year for half a season , all liable given by JBF ! Please move on ….. the man and his childish attitude are gone . He had no leadership qualities nor mentality it takes to bury the opponent . Remember Swaggy , yeah great leader McCoy allowing that crap all year long ! Played right next to him also ! BS about excuses …. results matter and this is a ream game and he was the leader ! Can you guys get over your live fest and move on ??? BS you are just reporting what is out there … know when enough is enough regurgitated NFL network blather ….

  18. Snook Says:

    Joe thinks GMC is (was?) a good player but it’s a big-time stretch to consider him Hall of Fame material.


    Joe: You read too much into the “haters” thing. We’re merely the people pointing out that the 5th highest paid defensive player in history wasn’t any more than “good”. But ask McCoy and he thinks he’s one of the best that’s ever played. He’s certainly already admitted that in the interview.

    But he’s not. Just because he was the ‘best’ player on an awful defense for 9 years, it doesn’t make him anything more than ‘good’.

    He’s a crybaby that can’t handle criticism. Even you can admit that.

  19. Don_RyJo(e) Says:

    The NFL is a cut-throat business, sure, but the move to immediately give 93 to his replacement was needlessly callous. There are plenty of other numbers. Why not err on the side of common decency?

  20. D-Rome Says:

    Gerald McCoy’s name will be in the Ring of Honor much to the chagrin of the mouth breathers.

  21. gotbbucs Says:


    Because they owe him nothing. He owes the Bucs. He gave them nothing in return for the ridiculous money he made. They paid him tens of thousands of dollars for every tackle he made and he left them as the most irrelevant team in the NFL.

    Luckily an outsider with some balls came in and said enough is enough and flushed that lingering turd down the toilet once and for all.

  22. D-Rome Says:

    Pewter Report has a great take on the McCoy situation.

    I’m not sure if it’s proper to reference another Bucs blog on this one. PR does a good job, but they are one step above Buccaneers.com in the sense they are practically a mouth piece for the organization.

  23. DB55 Says:

    According to one of the stat geeks at the tbtimes McIceCream is better than Mike Alstott, lmao.

    Not only has no one ever worn #40 in TB but no one in the entire league has worn in out of RESPECT!!!!

    Alstott was known as the A-Train a LOCOmotive (get it? Loco). McIceCream is known as ice cream, soft serve with sprinkles on top. No one respects him outside of 4 guys with articles they must write before their newspaper goes bankrupt.

    **Well maybe Peyton Hillis wore 40 but he couldn’t handle the punishment.

  24. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:


    It really is a good read all educated fans should read the PR article

  25. Hodad Says:

    It’s not like they gave his number to a rookie. Suh has more then earned the right to want, and wear that number. He has a more accomplished career the Gerry. McCoy never made the Bucs better, never. He acts like he did sooo much for the organization, when in reality the coach killer couldn’t left us up at all. Please Joe, enough about this loser.

  26. #1bucsfan Says:

    Joe should be writing about players on our team. I’m a big gmc fan but he’s no longer with us. Focus on bucs that’s why it’s called joebucsfan quit giving the haters more ammunition joe

  27. Howard Cosell Says:

    16 year old girls are tougher than mccoy when it comes to handling social media. Caring about what your ex team did with your old number is beyond butthurt and shows the sensitivity of a flower petal….and to do it on national TV….lmao…..

  28. Loyaltotheend Section 312 Says:


    Not sure you could honestly say that after reading their pieces. JBF is a blog as most post are a few paragraphs PR post in depth articles no slight against JBF as I visit both places for Bucs news. PR is just more traditional articles and credit who writes what while JBF likes the anonymity of their post

  29. Howard Cosell Says:

    It absolutely confirms everything the haters ever said about him

  30. DB55 Says:

    Gerald McCoy’s name will be in the Ring of Honor much to the chagrin of the mouth breathers
    What would be hilarious is if Suh helps us win a SB and he goes up on the wall instead of McIceCream. Oh man, that would be so fitting.

    I can sense the ice cream lovers heads imploding

  31. Howard Cosell Says:

    Losing and lack of effort/toughness…no big deal right?
    But take away the fantasy that he had about his place in Buc history and look out! Now he’s angry

  32. Race to 10 Says:

    Wrong wrong wrong. He was not in the same conversation as Brooks lynch sapp and Lee Roy selmon hes just not but warrick Dunn alstott sure, this team didnt even start winning until hardy knickerson came on the scene. You cant talk about setting the foundation for Winston when you’ve been a loser for your entire decade.

    They didnt give his number to some undrafted rookie. They gave it to suh who was drafted ahead of him and has had a more successful career. 90 was taken by jpp anyway. Dude soft and I hope he gets tricked over and over game 2 and 7. But time will prove bucs were right to cut that loser

  33. Buccfan37 Says:

    A player who made that much money should move on quietly instead of rubbing his whining in everybodies face. I don’t read any other Bucs news site so I’m guessing GMC did read JBF. Great comedy on most GMC takes lives on.

  34. Bobby M. Says:

    I noticed this from the day Winston came to town, McCoy became overly vocal all of sudden. It was like he felt threatened and was making an extra effort to stay relevant. The reality is and will always be, he was a very good player on some very terrible teams but he didn’t make a single pass rusher better. He didn’t set a single Bucs record….never made the playoffs….and doesn’t have a single highlight moment in a big game….or really any game. His response provides insight into what he truly was……As much as he promoted the idea of being a team guy that was grateful for the opportunity…..the reality was he collected $100 million from the Bucs, never produced a top ten defense….playoff team….or even a consistent winner…..Yet thinks he still owed something.

  35. Todd Says:

    Just in case GMC reads JBF, let me share my favorite Dad joke with him:

    Q: What’s the opposite of soft?

    A: Suh.

    🎤 Drop 🎤

  36. 813bucboi Says:

    #93 belongs to the player that has the most playoff appearances…..


    #93 goes to the player that was selected higher in the draft?…..

    simple as that……

    GO BUCS!!!!

  37. DB55 Says:


    80 year old man: My wiener has a first name it’s G-e-r-a-l-d-i-n-i

  38. Alanbucsfan Says:


    GMC’s signing bonus from Panthers

  39. Buczilla Says:

    Very good player but bad for the locker room IMHO. Otherwise, why would the Glazers give out his number so soon? If I had to rank McCoy..(Ah hell, I’ll just do it)

    Way to own the thread man…..let the hate flow for Ol Softie.

    And I would pay good money to watch Suh stomp Softie!!!!


  41. Jean Lafitte Says:

    Yep, McCoy is a legend in his own mind.

  42. Bucsfanman Says:

    DB55- You HAVE to stop dude! You are killing it today! It’s like you’ve been holding back or something! (Hard to believe!)

    He WAS a good player for us. After all of this though, I’m not so sure that I will miss him. I mean, stop being a baby!

  43. Bird Says:

    Bucs did him no favors. Handled it poorly.
    However , Suh had right for that number

    McCoy was a good player
    I think bucs ring of honor is a stretch

  44. DB55 Says:


    If I can’t get people to stop commenting on these articles I’ll just post and help them out.

    Note*. I think Tmax and I have made 1 comment each on these McIceCream articles since he was cut. bc well he ain’t here and no one should care but here we are.

  45. DB55 Says:

    If McIceCream wants to be an actor I have the perfect opportunity.

    4 roles he could totally get into and own.

    I’m producing a 1 man act of the Wizard of Oz. He’d be perfect as the Tin man, scarecrow, cowardly lion and Dorthy.

    The only part he couldn’t play is the dog bc well he’s got not dog in him

    but the Tin man and lion, absolutely perfect fit!!!!

  46. Don_RyJo(e) Says:


    I respectfully disagree. Gerald McCoy was not the reason my beloved Bucs suuuuuuuucked for over a decade. McCoy played hard, he showed up, he was a pillar of the community. There are a dozen missteps that the Bucs made in the past decade that led to perennial residency in Buccaneers’ Cove (i.e. last in the NFC South), but drafting McCoy ain’t one of them. I’m of the opinion that you demonstrate respect to employees that work hard and perform. There was no Up-Side to the Bucs’ blatant disrespect for McCoy. None. It was a schmuck-move…

  47. Jonathan Limpchimpi Says:

    Fans who follow the Bucs know the nuances of the McCoy Era…100 million + in payouts, few clutch/violent plays a D needs, fruity antics with comics/dolls. He was a good player for the Bucs…people outside of Tampa…including media…have a very limited view of the situation other than ProBowl popularity contests.

  48. Jmarkbuc Says:

    Good PR article…

    My mistake on Suh and his number..My memory ain’t what it used to be. I know him as 93.

    In the end, GMC wasn’t 55 99 47 63 not even 56 . I’m pretty sure the ’02 Defense wouldn’t have allowed dancing on the sideline or apologizing to QB’s I know I enjoyed watching David Logan play more than GMC. And none of them made the $$$ that he did.

    The Bucs didn’t do more than give him a cursory “pay cut deal” to stay…That WAS the respect they were showing him. No one expected him to take it.

    GMC doesn’t want to admit that the Bucs just weren’t that in to him anymore. He got ghosted. It happens. Now he’s all up in his feelings.

    I think GMC will be fine. Seems like a great human being, family man, got plenty of money to live his life on.

    Looking back in a few years, barring some miracle, both he and Suh will go down as “very good players” and that will be about it.

  49. adam from ny Says:

    mccoy and cornerbacks are all there is to talk about this offseason…

    what about the 2 sand crabs that have shacked up in jameis’ forehead…???

    definitely worth discussing

  50. RustyRhinos Says:

    We should all ask Kyle Love how he like”d” #93 he just gave this number away. As reported by Tim Weaver of pantherwire@ USAToday “Love probably got a little pay day from McCoy in exchange for the number, but nothing has been reported.”

    Who cares, he was a good player not a great player, close but never made those plays when they were needed to change the game. Like third and long. So we both parted ways. Then we bring the in a player to replace him, who happens to have played well with #93 on his Jersey. So we give it to him as he is an active member of this organization, unlike the former who is now a team member of our division foes, and which to me makes him the enemy.
    Good luck in Charlotte Mr. McCoy, here’s to great games for you in Atlanta, and New Orleans. Every place but Tampa. Bon Voyage! 🦇
    Go Bucs!

  51. BigMacAttack Says:

    Cammy gave Gerald one of his blue towels so they sit side by side with them over their heads when they get their buttts kicked. The team that whines together, declines together. GMC was the most overrated overpriced Buc ever. Zero return on investment. I can t wait to watch Marpet pancake Geraldine on his back. So it shall be written, so it shall be done. 😂

  52. Tim Says:

    Who cares what the Ex-Buc, soon to be FA bust says about his number.

    He is not here, therefore not his number anymore. Maybe if he took over a single game and made a difference fans would feel differently.

    Joe’s there is enough to write about that does not involve a salty ex player.

  53. Drew Says:

    GMC is whining as usual. When JPP told him he had no heart he was right on. As far as being one of the best in big moments he never was. Happy this no beast mode DT is gone.

  54. Drew Says:

    BTW … Where was the respect to fans when he never showed up late in games. I felt dis-respected when he didn’t show up late in games they could’ve won.

  55. DB55 Says:

    It was a schmuck-move…
    Schmuck move was to take a pay cut to play with the Panthers of all teams. I’d even understand if he signed with the saints considering him and Brees are besties but the Panthers.

    If I had any respect for him I would have lost it when he declared “l’m home”.

    Make you wonder if let cam through his gap for game winning TDs on purpose. Or maybe let his foot of the gas late in games on purpose.

  56. DB55 Says:


    From this point forward I expect 2 Suh articles (positive) for every one of these ice cream articles. Get Zach on it.

    Please and thank you.

  57. Slugglife Says:

    Gave away his number? Yeah ok.

    He ain’t on the team anymore. It’s not his number. On to the next story about McCoy.

  58. tmaxcon Says:

    Outside of that bum 55 that sapp carried to the hall of mediocrity there never has been a bigger fraud in bucs history than cancer93… go storm…..

    8 basement titles…. cancer93 is the undisputed face of the basement years nothing more

  59. Allbuccedup Says:

    Only classy organizations respect their veteran pro bowl players.

  60. pelbuc Says:

    WOW! Breer and the rest of the national media should watch tape of GMC last year. His most memorable moment was dancing with Kwon on the sidelines while down 3 scores. Where’s TMax when you need him? All this bitching over a number. GMC is thankfully a bad memory and not a current player.

  61. gobuxfla Says:

    If he feels so strongly, McMarshmellow can suit up, get a pregame cramp and sit out the first game making a zillion excuses as usual and then go on IR and offer commentary for the second Kitty Kats-Bucs game on Panthers radio.

    Either way when a player shows no class and whines like that it indicates softness and McInjured has demonstrated that throughout his career.

  62. ATLBucs Says:

    Now, I’ve always supported GMC and I didn’t think it was fair the way some of our fans talked about him but, I’m starting to get a little miffed at him for the way he’s acting now saying that the Bucs are treating him wrong for giving his number away. First, you had a chance to wear that number when the Bucs made a free-agent offer to you. Second, if you love the Bucs as much as you want them to love and respect you, why not take a pay cut instead of taking less money to go to Caroline because your feelings were hurt that BA don’t view you as an All-Pro. Third!!! Do you really expect the Bucs to get off to a rough start with Suh by denying that number to appease a former player, You, who just showed us your backside? Get real, Bro. You were and polite while you were here. The Bucs paid you all the money they owed you, so don’t leave home and start acting like a diva.

  63. tmaxcon Says:


    outside of sapp, selmon and evans that list you produced is filled with backups… no one confuses popularity with greatness like low standard bucfan

  64. T REX Says:

    Best fans ever! Absolutely zero class.

  65. Mike Johnson Says:

    I concur 1000% with Mr. Breer. Its funny how outsiders few us. Its always mostly contrary to what Many….Buc fans think. Like I’ve said here 100 times, Please win this yr Bucs. If you don’t Buc fans will pick at least 2 scapegoats from the team as sacrificial lambs to ease their pain of being losers.

  67. D-Rome Says:

    tmaxcon, you really crack me up at times and I mean that in a good way. While I disagree with your assessment of Derrick Brooks I do agree with you on your opinion of Sapp and how he impacted Brooks’ career. Sapp’s ability to be disruptive on every defensive line he played for the Bucs allowed *everyone* else to hang back.

    I don’t think Brooks would have been a backup without Sapp but I do agree that Brooks’ game was elevated because of Sapp. In 2002 Buccaneers linebackers only had 4 sacks on the year and that’s because that entire defensive line was a wrecking machine, and it was lead by Sapp.

  68. JA Says:

    T Rex–

    Seems this site is under siege by a chockablock of “adults” with pre-adolescent mentalities that find humor in the term, “McIceCream.”
    My allegiance is m-e-l-t-I-n-g …

  69. BucEmUp Says:

    Man first it was desean jackson articles, now its Mccoy. At least talk about someone that fans LIKED that went to other teams. I havent seen much of anything on Adam Humphries or Kwon Alexander. If its about following the players around that they lost why not include the ones that were admired most at least as much as the others.

  70. Youngbucs Says:

    Joe the troll lives on.

  71. Miguel Romero Says:

    Turn the damn page Joe! Get off of McCoy man…good lord!

    McIceCream McIceCream McIceCream McIceCream McIceCream

  73. Youngbucs Says:

    Insulting fans that see through money pit Geraldine McCash!? Just shows what a baby you are Joe. For the record what do Blackhawk helicopters and tinfoil rooms have to do with seeing a football player making too much money for lack of production and then having a different opinion on his achievements? I know you are but what am I mentality that’s what this site is to become now?

  74. JimmyJack Says:

    Well dang Joe. You claim Gerald made the news here with Breer but it is basically just a blurb. That link you got has about 50 paragraphs that have nothing to do with McCoy. I think what you wrote in the article is the entirety of it…………..There is 🍒 picking then there is digging deep and hard.

    Almost going out of your way to write about McCoy. Which is cool by me. Entertaining comments and is love to get a new chance to bash am overrated, soft to the core manwoman.

  75. Pit of Misery Says:

    Good article and agree that GMC was a good player and can speak his mind, BUT, no icon. Breer…. “meh”.

  76. Scotty in Fat Antonio Says:

    So, the Bucs fans are ranked #23 out of 32. My question is, how did we rank so high?

  77. Cobraboy Says:

    McCoy was an OK player who was neither a leader nor worth the money paid, and barely met his 1st Round expectations.

    He is no icon, never set any example, never inspired a crowd, never led the defense and will never sniff the RoH.

  78. TampaBayAllTheWay Says:

    This sure has been alot of McCoy articles on here for who knows why….?!

    OJ and ME13 gonna have great years! Maybe a RB acquisition before week 1. Watch McCoy being cut in Buffalo! No we won’t trade for that contract.

  79. Trey Says:

    I was a fan of McCoy while he was here. He has soured me with how he has handled himself since being cut. He does not deserve to be considered along our greats like he has so self-gratifyingly done. I am happy Suh gets to roll on with his #

  81. D1 Says:


    “So, the Bucs fans are ranked #23 out of 32. My question is, how did we rank so high?”

    Answer; Dyslexia.

  82. Couch Fan Says:

    There is no reason to take the number out of circulation for 1 year or ever. GMC was a slightly above average player (on a good day) who refused to restructure, decided to join a division rival and the fan boys think he has a right to be angry about his number being given to a better player whos always worn the number before? LMAO. Just when you think things cant get any more absurd.

  83. Pickgrin Says:

    Joe Says:
    “ducking under trees constantly to hide from the black helicopters hovering above, sort of like when Henry and Karen were convinced they were being tailed by aircraft manned by the FBI in “Goodfellas.”

    Um – Henry and Karen WERE being closely tailed by the FBI…. in fact – they got busted big time that same day!

    Is that what you call a backwards analogy??

  84. Elite Vita Says:

    It is my belief that McCoy 93 will one day find his place in the ring of honor. For now however (this next year), the number 93 will be “borrowed” by Suh.

  85. BucnJoe500 Says:

    A lot of y’all just want to hate GMC for no reason. If only y’all looked up all the numbers that have been taken out of rotation in Bucs history. The proof is in the pudding. McCoy deserved to have his 93 put on hold in Tampa. Judging by the Bucs’ own standards.

  86. Noles Says:

    Stop writing about McCoy bc he is McGone…..

  87. RTG Bucs Says:

    I can picture Joe sitting at his keyboard wearing a helmet with a tin foil spike rubbing his hands together as he writes another McCoy article saying
    “Nuthuggers vs haters; clicks, clicks clicks, money, money, money!”

    Can’t wait for training camp to start!

  88. lowercaseg Says:

    The numbers that McCoy put up in the NFL are inflated. No way in hell that being mediocre in a softer league means you get your number retired. I’ve seen some of the worse defensive plays ever played in the NFL by what McCoy calls quality. If anything it’s quality s***.

    GMC was garbage for the Bucs. Good/Bad to see his last performance against the Falcons where some guy rb named Brian Hill absolute trucks GMC and GMC goes flying like he got hit by a car. Is this y’all man Joe? Lol and then publicly trash the Bucs for doing him wrong???.

    GMC didn’t take any blame for the porous defense. This guy is super wierd and super childish. Glad he is gone and replaced with his rival Suh and gave him his number. The Bucs wipe their butts with GMC and it is dirty and I’m siding with the Bucs. Good job.

  90. Old School Athlete Says:

    Lamarcus, GMC didn’t have to take blame for the porous defense because he wasn’t responsible for it. If you want to point fingers for the defensive failures, there are many other directions to point them, most notably coaching.
    I would agree with a Breer that cutting him was a mistake if it weren’t for the financial aspect.
    As far as the number issue, I suspect something happened at OBP on his way out that precipitated Suh getting his number and his comment about being “home”. Maybe the team rep who broke the news to him could have handled it better. This organization has a history of mishandling personnel issues.

    “what about the 2 sand crabs that have shacked up in jameis’ forehead…???”

    Hasn’t he bragged about putting on a bunch of muscle mass this off season?

    Among common side effects of the more powerful “performance enhancers” are bone growth in the jaw and in the brow. It doesn’t affect everyone, and some may have one or the other. If you look up before and after pictures of Barry Bonds, I believe you can see this in both his brow and his jaw line.

  94. Barack's Crack Pipe Says:

    Or maybe it’s an implant for the new generation of helmets, which can be clamped to the cranium to keep it from coming off inadvertently. Just a guess. 😀

    Sorry, Athlete, but I cannot believe that you spend much time watching Bucs games if you believe that. Roll the tape. I started wondering why they even left him in on running downs.

    what about cedric brown, mark carrier and kevin house…

    or hugh green and richard wood…

    mccoy is equal equal to mark cotney…lol 🙂

  97. adam from ny Says:

    there’s an old saying at carvel:

    “wednesday is sunday at carvel”

    probably mccoy and myself are the only ones who know what it means…if any of you want to know just email gerald, i’m sure he will explain, if he still wants to get in the ring and retire a buc…

  98. adam from ny Says:

    it might have been spelled:

    “wednesday is SUNDAE at carvel”

  99. adam from ny Says:

    seriously tho…mccoy is kinda like equal to mark cotney…this is pretty accurate…cotney played for the bucs for about 8 years…granted he was a safety…his imprint on the team is about the same, if you take away all the modern day hype, media attention, and galavanting that goes on…

    mccoy should treat cotney to a big carvel ice cream cake when the panthers come to town…you know, the cakes with the crunchy little chocolate pieces in it…they’re so dam tasty!…

  100. adam from ny Says:

    do you think mccoy and jameis talk on the phone about how jameis should go about removing those 2 sand crabs that have taken up home inside jameis’ newly bulked up forehead???

  105. C2asante Says:

    You people never cease to amaze me… All of these derogatory comments and name calling from cowardly keyboard warriors who have not achieved a fraction of the acclaim Gerald has in his chosen career, in their own careers. Nothing more than loudmouth losers ready to hate on a proud Black man who gave his all for an organization and never did anything to embarrass us off the field. I’m a diehard Bucs fan but I wish the man all the best and I can admit he was treated with disrespect… Really not sure why he anticipated anything better from you people.

  106. Howard Cosell Says:

    @ C2asante…

    Is that you Gerald? Lol…..

  107. Howard Cosell Says:

    You know what’s delicious?
    The Publix bakery reeses dream pie……mmmmm

  108. C2asante Says:

    Howard Cocksell says “Is that you Gerald? Lol…..”.

    No Gerald is at the trailer park with your Mother

  109. Howard Cosell Says:

    Well that’s just mean spirited. Gerald would be ashamed of you
