“I Hope Ali Marpet Busts His Chin Open”

August 15th, 2019

The hype already is building for the Gerald McCoy Bowl, Week 2 in Charlotte on Thursday Night Football.

Joe can’t wait.

Former Buccaneers guard Ian Beckles is hoping pain is among the festivities.

That’s what he told the WDAE-AM audience this evening. “I hope Ali Marpet busts his chin open,” Beckles said, adding that he planned to talk to Marpet personally in an effort to ramp up Marpet’s intensity.

It was brought to Beckles’ attention on the air that his beef with McCoy sounded personal, and Beckles said it is. Why? Because McCoy disrespected the Bucs with his post-release chatter.

Beckles lauded Warren Sapp’s recent comments that McCoy crossed a line when he hopped on national television and lumped himself in with Bucs legends from the glory years. After the Bucs cut him, McCoy joined FS1 for a lengthy conversation about his departure from Tampa and his future. Sapp contends McCoy shouldn’t be in the same breath as other Buccaneers Ring of Honor members.

As for Bucs offensive linemen getting jacked up to play against McCoy, Joe can’t even go there.

If this entire Bucs team isn’t fired up to play every snap against anyone in Week 2 on national television, then they are a sorry band of losers.

Beckles firmly predicted that McCoy will not finish the 2019 season in one piece.

    Didn’t Beckles and Sapp get into a lockeroom fight? Or was that another player?

  2. DB55 Says:

    Joe got a serious man crush on McIceCream and this whole time I thought it was a professional relationship. It’s worse than Ira’s crush on Dotson. No man crush. –Joe

  3. Buc4life24 Says:

    GMC is a mental midget and thinks he is something he’s not! A guy who seemed more worried about accolades (pro bowl appearances) than winning! Can’t wait to see how this turns out!

    Joe says: “If this entire Bucs team isn’t fired up to play every snap against anyone in Week 2 on national television, then they are a sorry band of losers.” I look forward to it. Will be row 3 behind Bucs bench on 50. I look forward to what CAR fans think of him too, though I believe he’s not a projected starter. Haven’t cared yet.

    No issue with Beckles invoking Sapp’s comments. But I wonder how much a mediocre has-been player horse-petting loser will inspire Marpet against against a guy he lined up across from at practice for several years. I think Beckles may be as delusional at that as GMC thinking they should not have given out his number so soon.

    My biggest worry is a young team under new schemes having time to unscrew any 8 Sep game issues and be ready for CAR four days later. GMC is the least of the problems.

  5. Rod Munch Says:

    Beckles is such a boring wantabe shock jock. Why people would ever quote this j/o is beyond me.

    Anywho this thread can be useful as a gameday thread.

    Watching the Baltimore game via gamepass and they keep showing “beauty” shots of the city. Wow, what an s-hole. I think I literally saw rats in the shot.

    Speaking of ugly s-hole cities, I was watching the Eagles @ Jags and what a waste of a game – it’s preseason week 2 and neither team is playing starters on offense or defense. Just move to an 18 week season with 2 preseason games already.

    At 8pm the Oakland/Cards game is on, that one should be interesting.

  6. Dewey Selmon Says:

    Ist offensive play of the game let Marpet, Jenson, and Smith triple block him and let everyone else go. Throw a screen pass. After Jameis lets the the ball go he can get a shot in too. Take the penalty and send a message.

  7. Joe Says:

    Didn’t Beckles and Sapp get into a lockeroom fight? Or was that another player?

    Not Beckles. It was Chidi Chidi Bang Bang.

    Sapp and Beckles are tight.

  8. mark2001 Says:

    Alter…believe that fight was between Chidi Ahanotu and Warren.

  9. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Isn’t GMC gone?

  10. mark2001 Says:

    Would have tied you with that answer Joe, but I had to look up how to spell Chidi.

  11. Magadude Says:

    @Dewey…cool. Like it.

  12. JimmyJack Says:

    Atta boy Beckles. It’s refreshing to see this guys stand up for our team.

    Before McCoy even made his whining statements the media turned me into a hater trying to tell me how unfairly he was treated. Don’t you never tell a Bucs fan, who basically wastes 16 Sundays a year on this team, about fairness. That’s because half these media’s are yankee fans who couldn’t hack it in their big cities so they squirm their way into lower markets. They are fans and they don’t care about this team. They have no business preaching to us what is or isn’t fair. Don’t never let them fool you.

  13. JimmyJack Says:

    ***are not fans***

  14. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Love it Ian, this town & team hasnt had any fire or heart in probably 15 years, hope the players on the field are listening. I think BA is talking to the former players in the area too

  15. Rod Munch Says:

    The best locker room fight ever has to be Scott Skiles attacking Shaq, he jumped on his back and started punching him from what I’ve always heard – it was said Shaq was a big softie and Skiles was sick of him playing soft. Something like that, I mean it was 25 years ago at this point, but still, little short balding Skiles, who was just a mean little guy, attacking Shaq to toughen him up, is just a great story.

  16. Yeogib Says:

    Guys, McCoy is a pro bowler. Duh. Plus, he had all those 10 + sack seasons…wait. Almost as big a ghost as Johnson. Don’t worry though, I’m sure he’ll be very “disruptive” for Carolina too.

  17. JimmyJack Says:

    The Bucs have the advantage in that Carolina game.

    Biggest one being that they only have 3 days to film study us because it’s a Thursday Night game. If I’m Bruce I take full advantage of that and have been studying that team since 3 months ago.

    Then you have McCoy who will want to make a statement. But don’t forget the Bucs have a player who has taken Gerald position and number who will be wanting to make a statement of his own. For these two players Week 2 will be a big game. One of them players shows up for big games and the other never has. Never. Pretty easy to see who has the advantage.

  18. mark2001 Says:

    Jimmy…you can’t be talking about Joe…if you have ever been to Charleston, or Normal, you would know Tampa Bay is a larger market. Back there, you can scream in the corn or bean fields…and often times, only the crows hear.

  19. Clean House Says:

    I don’t particularly like GMC, but I think he is worthy of the ring.
    He was solid for many years.

    Buckles is a scrub with a big mouth and Sapp is the best, but a loud mouth piece of garbage

  20. BA FAN Says:

    McCoy never was a double digit sacker so he will never be on our ring of honor and he refused to take a cut in pay to what he was worth so he was not willing to help his team. He was not entitled to think his number would be retired. He also was no help in stopping the run. He was an embarrassment dancing on the sidelines in a losing game. He wanted to be the center of attention. I appreciated that he helped the community in Tampa but that doesn’t get your number retired either. Glad Sapp put him in his place!

  21. Rod Munch Says:

    If any of you dopes actually listened to the interview, what Sapp said was McCoy was a very very good player, he just shouldn’t be mentioned in the same breath as Barber, Lynch, Brooks and Rice since he never won anything. Which is fair in the context of the question he was asked. McCoy was a very very good player, but no, he wasn’t in the class of Sapp – but Sapp is a 1st ballot HOF’er, there’s very few people in history that are in the class of Sapp. McCoy was a very good player for us on very bad teams – it’s like saying Paul Gruber was awful, or James Wilder was awful – it’s fake news, and it’s not what Sapp said. However if you want to talk about player rankings, Beckles is about 100x lower on the player scale than McCoy.

  22. Smashsquatch Says:

    GMC played hide and seek in the second half of games. Sapp was a stud and imposed his will on the opponent, elevating his game when it mattered most. GMC was never able to fill those shoes, kudos to Sapp for calling him out. GMC is crazy butt hurt, still looking for an apology from Bucs brass. Stands to reason the same guy who apologizes to QBs as he’s tackling them would get his feelings hurt so easily. Such a nice guy, the Panthers are very fortunate to have such a nice guy in their locker room. Addition by subtraction takes on multiplication when his soft mentality pollutes a division foe’s locker room. Go Bucs!

  23. joestang Says:

    we’re lucky beckles doesn;t have to block McCoy. Ali will do just fine.

  24. Bucnjim Says:

    Beckles and Sapp played during a time when the game was WAY more physical than it is now. The trenches were literally a fist fight almost every play. Unless you ripped someone’s helmet off or tackled a lineman very little was called. Now if you swear and hurt someone’s feelings it’s a foul. If you apologize it’s a foul (we’ve seen that) and if you have bad breath and yell at Tom Brady it’s called personal foul. For us old school Hardy Nickerson fans it’s hard to watch. For Millenials you can be a Panthers fan and root for BOTH Batman and Superman in the same game. Give me a Hardy Nickerson EVERY time and keep the action figures.

  25. Pelbuc61 Says:

    Enough about Batgirl. Let’s talk about Bucs players. Sapp was dead on about GMC.

  26. Rod Munch Says:

    Deandre Washington, RB for the Raiders, he looks so good. I don’t think the Raiders will cut him, but if they do, he’s someone the Bucs should pounce on.

  27. View from 132 Says:

    Ian Beckles is lucky to be employed. When was he some great O lineman? Pfftt.

  28. Rod Munch Says:

    The Glennon mob must be on suicide watch…

  29. tmaxcon Says:

    The bucs are an embarrassment outside of sapp and selmon…. you all know that…. the rest are just small market irrelevant popular players that unintelligent bucfan thinks were great but in reality are backups or xfl players especially the dumbest buc/guy of all time 55….

  30. Ben real Says:

    Joe your right … bucs should be fired up regardless of who they play… this team should be fired up every week… the losing should be gut wrenching to the players who have been here the past few years … of what they say that they are tired of not being in the playoffs well it’s time to play smart and hard and win period … GO BUCS

  31. Wesley Says:

    Ian is a nobody we don’t care what he thinks Joe.

  32. Rod Munch Says:

    …and the Glennon mob has hope!

  33. Defense Rules Says:

    @Beckles … ” “I hope Ali Marpet busts his head open.” Sorry Joe, but Beckles is sick. He’s also a bore who needs to crawl back in his hole.

  34. Magadude Says:

    Very good point JimmyJack….three days to study the Bucs.

  35. tmaxcon Says:

    D r

    The entire franchise should crawl in a hole based on actual results…. especially Dungy the ignorant one dimensional clown

  36. MadMax Says:

    Marpet was holding together real good as a rook against mcicecream….go get him Marpet….Cappa too! Bust his head!!

  37. Rod Munch Says:

    The Glennon mob are going to celebrate tonight like it’s 2014.

  38. Kobe Faker Says:

    “Lol

    Matt Ryan sacked 3 times for 19 yards in half a quarter

    Klueless going to get him killed”

    Kobe Faker

  39. Duthsty Rhothdes Says:

    Gruden has glennon cranked up tonite he is carving up the team BA buried in the desert

  40. westernbuc Says:

    Beckles is basically a keyboard warrior on JBF. He’d never say that in the same room as GMC. Typical radio loudmouth.

    Ali should block his number and the Bucs need to keep him away from the players. I get why *legends* get access, Beckles is no legend.

    What’s the message here? The moment you leave this team we’re gonna injure you? Great. What a trashy thing to say.

  41. Magadude Says:

    Hard Knocks though Glennon looked BAD. #2 QB. Stunk it up. Two picks. Gruden was eight shades of PO’d. And Glennon swearing all over the place…very impressed with some “fire” for a change. But I think Peterman came in and cleaned up well. Mike may be looking again soon.

  42. Magadude Says:

    @western…yeah, but Beckles is a local talking head and former Bucs player…that’s money in the bank for Bucs PR MOST of the time. Jeeze, the media in this town is disappearing so anything you can get is good.

  43. Rod Munch Says:

    Glennon last week looked great, except for 2 passes, both were INTs. Tonight on the opening drive Glennon totally missed a wide open TE for an easy TD on his first drive, but since then he’s looked good. So basically he’s had basically 3 bad throws, but those 3 throws were a wasted TD and two turnovers. He’s throwing a good deep ball though, better than he ever threw in Tampa. In any case, as far as backups go, I’d rather have him than the garbage we have as backup QBs, but that’s a low bar.

  44. JimmyJack Says:

    Derrick Brooks is a HOF you ever loving moron.

  45. Rod Munch Says:

    Booger is doing a good job as the color guy on ESPN tonight, it’s amazing how many good national talkers came out of those glory Bucs teams.

    Gruden, Sapp, Dungy, Booger, Dilfer, Keyshawn, Ronde, Lynch, Herm Edwards. Not sure if I’m forgetting someone, but wow, that’s a lot of people.

  46. JimmyJack Says:

    Always suprized at the amount of hate Ian Beckles recieves. He is one of the few media persons who will talk about things that other medias would not Dare say. Gerald McCoy being a perfect example.

    I for one appreciate it and find it refreshing.

    It is a shame he does a radio show with that classless disrespectful creep he is with. For that I don’t listen but his podcast is very good. I hope that he breaks off into his own show and follows in the Big Dogs footprints…..He only one remotely close to having the nads to do it.

    Also thanks to Joe for sharing his noteworthy comments here.

    Also them two but bubble heads that talk at noon are a disgrace to sports talk. They are immature and unfunny…..They more closely resemble preteen slumber party babble then sports radio.

  47. JimmyJack Says:

    I for one would love to see a busted chin during that game. I would take pure joy in McCoy bleeding on the field.

  48. tmaxcon Says:

    JimmyJack

    55 is a loser without riding sapps coattail… one of the dumbest minds football as ever knew…. but clearly you like losers so I support you clinging to dingle berry’s or butt nuggets.

  49. JimmyJack Says:

    Not gushing just a little drip and a fat lip.

  50. Rod Munch Says:

    JimmyJack – The issue with Beckles is that he’s just an act, he saw what Booger did, going national very quickly, and he’s trying to follow in his footsteps. The issue was Booger was legitimately funny and entertaining, while Beckles just comes off as a 3rd rate local radio hack. Tons of radio personalities have come out of Tampa and went national from Lionel, Ron & Ron (Fez), Colin Cowherd, Jimmy Kimmel, Glenn Beck, Booger, etc, and everyone in radio knows that list, and Beckles doesn’t have a 1/100000th the talent of any of those guys.

  51. tmaxcon Says:

    Munch

    Booger is a joke at least beckels is a real man with his own thoughts not regurgitating Politically correct nonsense like booger the backup

  52. tmaxcon Says:

    Munch a Nut

    But you’re a poster boy for low standards and still think dungy the clowns 2 play off wins in 6 years is legendary so your credibility is closer to the squad than reality

  53. JimmyJack Says:

    Yeah Rod but here’s the thing all them guys you just named(except Booger who I don’t remember being a radio guy) were never Tampa fans. Most of these radio guys we get are transplants who have their own alliegences.

    I get it that some of y’all want to laugh your heads off when your listening to sports talk and can’t wait to hear Todd Stroud do his funny voices……..but not me. I want passion about my sports team. That’s what I want.

    Beckles is a Tampa fan through and through and has that passion.

    Hey nothing wrong if you want the comedy and entertainment act from your sports talk. To each his own.

    I’m just suprized that more people don’t get tired of the same old tune from these transplant media’s who don’t care about the team and only cover it…….Would think there be a little more respect for Beckles for the simple fact that he’s one of the rare few with real passion for the team.

  54. JimmyJack Says:

    Also Booger was absolutely atrocious last year. And maybe it was that broadcast team he was with where it felt like they were all trying to talk over each other but it was very difficult to listen to in mine opinion.

    ^^^HELL YES TO THIS! The game is a weak faint reflection of itself now. Remember when hits were celebrated and remembered?! Now its flag. At least we all got to witness on of the greatest defenses ever. Hardy should be considered for ring of honor before Mcicecream

  56. diggler Says:

    @jimmyjack Very true about beckles. Never forget him walking back to the locker room after an injury and the look on this face. it looked like it hurt him more to not be playing than the actual injury.

  57. tmaxcon Says:

    Hardy Nickerson was the last intelligent lb to play for glazers minor league Buccaneers

  58. Billy_45 Says:

    I agree with Dewey too.
    Awesome idea actually except I wouldn’t take the penalty.

    I think the play works too.

  59. Lamarcus Says:

    JW has elite strength for a QB. Hard to bring down in the back field. If K Mack can’t bring him done single handed….. GMC definitely is not bring him down.

  60. JimmyJack Says:

    Derrick Brooks is a HOF and you are an ever loving moron. That’s where the argument starts and ends. None of this is worthy of a full blow discussion. Sometimes simple is better…….So again, Brooks is a HOF and you are a ever loving moron.

    You wanna argue it further go find a idiot to argue with. Cause it’s idiotic. I already know you carn’t fix stupid so I won’t try.

  61. miken Says:

    i never loved mccoy but he will be motivated and can cause havoc. he might make us pay.

  62. tmaxcon Says:

    JimmyJack

    You cant argue you have no ammunition except for your feelings for ignorant losers….

  63. tmaxcon Says:

    JimmyJack

    I guess your statement about hof would matter if the hall of fame mattered. Hof was rendered meaningless the day Dungy the clown and his pathetic post season record was enshrined

  64. Rod Munch Says:

    JimmyJack – I wasn’t saying those guys were Tampa fans, I’m saying those are all guys who went big after being in the Tampa radio market. This is an important media market in that it’s mid-sized and sort of a test area and the listenership is very diverse. So guys on radio here are always auditioning for national jobs since if you do well in this market, that often can translate to the national scene.

    As for Beckles the guy sounds like your local generic sports radio hack. As for the other local hack shows, I haven’t heard them since right now the sports radio scene is God awful, and sitting through 40 mins of commercials each hour to hear some bore give some predictable take is about as exciting as watching TJmaxx inject himself with AZT. I don’t want funny voices or lame comedy as much as I don’t want a guy giving “hot takes” to be “shocking” in order to get attention.

    Also for Booger, he was great on radio, naturally funny, gave great insight, could talk at ease. Last year on MNF they stuck him in that thing on the side of the field and it was just awful – but tonight he did a really good job, much more comfortable and how he should be being used. He’s a great talker, has great timing, that should come through as the season goes along.

    “Biggest one being that they only have 3 days to film study us because it’s a Thursday Night game. If I’m Bruce I take full advantage of that and have been studying that team since 3 months ago.”

    Umm…not to pick, but aren’t the Panthers capable of doing the same thing?

  68. Mr. Lucky Says:

    Who do you think will have the better game that week?

    McCoy or Suh

    My $ is on the Bucs and Suh (Bucs should have taken Suh over McCoy in the first place!)

  69. Ra'Shad Says:

    Listen, I’m hyped and the game is weeks away. Like Joe said, National televised game, week 2 against a division rival. What more else do they need to get to my level? @ Magadude let’s get together before the game!!!!!

  70. adam from ny Says:

    wild thread right here…

    sapp did kinda nail it though

  71. D-Rome Says:

    It was brought to Beckles’ attention on the air that his beef with McCoy sounded personal, and Beckles said it is. Why? Because McCoy disrespected the Bucs with his post-release chatter.

    That’s baloney. It’s been personal with Beckles for nearly a decade.

  72. D-Rome Says:

    Suh was off the board when the Bucs drafted McCoy, sport.

  73. adam from ny Says:

    also i think beckles just means get up and under the face mask on the helmet a bit…bust up the chin with some tough old school play…if marpet wont do it, and i’m betting he doesn’t, they can prolly get jensen to switch up on a play or two and go up and under that mask…they should rag doll mccoy a bit – since he plays soft and is now a veggie type vegan mohegan…just yoke him up in the trenches boys…bitch him out for the bay…

    I have the May 1995 issue of The Buccaneer magazine with post draft Sapp pic on the front. Maybe I should sell it.

  76. Mike Johnson Says:

    Sorry Ian BEckles. That won’t happen. GMC is three times the player you were.

  77. GZilla007 Says:

    Who the hell is Iain Beckles? That scrub is the LAST person opening his mouth and I hope he reads this. He ain’t ever been s***. How long did he play in the NFL? I remember him getting abused like an alter boy. I have no clue why anybody ever gave you a job as reporter bcz just like football, you suck at that too. Wasn’t it your dumb azz along with Sapp that said Vita Vea would basically suck?

    …and Sapp DEFINITELY needs to keep his mouth shut …talking about GMC didn’t win. It’s funny how he had the privilege of playing on a legendary defense with HOF players: John Lynch, Ronde Barber, Derrick Brooks, Simeon Rice, Hardy Nickerson (even though he wasn’t on the Super bowl team). And even the players who weren’t HOF were still really good. …not to mention, HOF coaches: Tony Dungy and John Gruden.

    Who were McCoy’s teammates? He didn’t have a single person on the DLine that was worth a damn until JPP and Vita Vea. Labonte has been awesome and so was Barber. Talib was great but he was a knucklehead. Raheem Morris Defense sucked 2 out of 3 years. Greg Schiano may have turned out to be a decent coach but there was too much drama. His 2 years here, we were number one against the rush but dead last against the pass. Lovie Smith defense was damn near dead last in every category both years and so was Mike Smith’s Defense. IN SPITE of the fact that he played on lousy defenses with an equally lousy offense, GMac continually made pro bowls and …what I feel is even more telling, the NFL players voted him into the top 100 6 times. THAT’S RESPECT.

    Warren Sapp, I hope you read what I’m about to say: IF YOU PLAYED EVERY SINGLE SNAP IN THE PLACE OF GMAC, THE RESULTS WOULD HAVE BEEN THE SAME! YOU WOULD’VE HAVE HAD A SINGLE WINNING SEASON!

    And on the flipside, the Bucs could’ve still won that superbowl if they had GMac instead of you. That’s how good that team was. Furthermore, getting caught with a couple of prostitutes in a hotel ended your TV career and finished your legacy. It’s arguable that you were a better player but you’re not even close to the man he is!
