Torn Quad Ends Gerald McCoy’s Season

August 17th, 2020

Some consider Gerald McCoy a Tampa Bay legend, a future Buccaneers Ring of Honor inductee, so Joe is sharing this sad news.

The Dallas Cowboys put on pads today for the first time, as did most teams across the NFL, and McCoy was a casualty. The six-time Pro Bowler tore his quadriceps muscle, the team announced, and he’ll now head for season-ending surgery.

What a tough break for a guy who hasn’t had a serious injury in many years.

McCoy signed a multi-year deal with Dallas this offseason, and he has a load of time to recover, so Joe suspects this isn’t the end of McCoy’s football career.

Joe wishes McCoy well.

    This could be the end of McCoys career.

    Was never the biggest 93 fan, don’t want him in the ring of honor, and I do hate me some cowgirls….. but I don’t wish that on anyone.

  11. TheBucsAnthem Says:

    Bro……………just retire already

    ……….GMC was retired the whole time when he played with the bucs anyways

  12. Darin Says:

    Crazy how football people respect his game but some Bucs “fans” don’t. Not sure how anyone could wish anything but well to a good man and former Buc player who just had a season ending injury. Takes all types I hear. Get well soon Big G

    I know a lot of Bucs fans hate him because he was nice on the field and soft. But McCoy off the field is a great guy. Don’t wish for anyone to get hurt hopefully his career is not over. He still wasn’t good enough to be in the ring of honor though.

  15. Steven Says:

    Hate to hear that about anyone. Isn’t this the same injury he had his first few seasons in the league?

  16. Bucsfanman Says:

    Tough break. This could be it for GMC. Get well soon.

  17. TampaTown Says:

    I thought it was a torn biceps, one in each arm, that ended his first two seasons. I feel for any player that loses a season to injury.

  18. Buczilla Says:

    I think that it was silly for McCoy to feel disrespected when they gave Suh his number, but I don’t think that he’s a bad guy. Based on his play last year with Carolina, he still has something left in the tank and I hope that he comes back healthy.

    Damn good player for us, but ring of honor good? Naw. Maybe after a bunch of other former Bucs get in (Warrick Dunn, James Wilder, Shelton Quarles, Tony Mayberry, and Hardy Nickerson just off the top of my head) I guess he could be considered.

  19. CalBucsFan Says:

    Damn, tough break GMc, best wishes for speedy recovery.

  20. BucsMinisiterFuller Says:

    Ring of honor??
    I better see Gramatica in the ring before McCoy.

  21. D-Rome Says:

    Joe, I’m not sure this isn’t the end of McCoy’s career. Dallas will likely cut him over the next 365 and then what? He’ll be a 33 year old DT who has clearly lost a step. I can’t imagine there will be a team out there willing to part cash for GMC, not in a starting role anyway. I’ve always been a GMC fan and do believe he’ll be in the Ring of Honor one day but this could be it for him.

  22. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Anyone who would laugh or make negative comments about Mccoy after this is truly a disgusting human being.

  23. james west Says:

    never cared for his play, his lack of tenacity, and as some have said his softness, i do not think he will get on the field again, not enough passion drive or dedication, after a year off, prove me wrong GMC if you can

  24. Sick of the lies Says:

    Ummm so???

  25. JimbobBucsFan Says:

    Yes I feel for the man. He did work his buns off while he was here. He maximized his talent as best he could. That’s all you can ask of anyone!

    I wish him the best whatever his future.

  26. Kyle Says:

    Best wishes to Gerald. He is a class act, I will always be a fan.

  27. 541BucsFan Says:

    His get was his game. That explosiveness comes from your quads. He’s already aging so this could essentially end his career.

  28. Joe in Michigan Says:

    Real classy Snook, we need to reassign you to the Philadelphia Eagles fans. I’ll never forget the classless Eagles fans cheering when Warren Sapp was laying on the field. I don’t wish injury or death on anyone, if you do, you’re a lowlife.

  29. Cobraboy Says:

    That is a serious injury for a guy whose game is built on his “get off.”

    Could be The End.

    RoH? Please. No.

  30. Clean House Says:

    Where’s the list of 6 time pro bowlers on the Bucs?
    Man deserves the ring of honor.
    And I wish him a full recovery, was excited to see that Dallas D line w him.
    Must be so disappointing. Sucks

  31. Mike Says:

    You must be confused with all that different fandom Clean house, Bucs Saints and now a cowgirl fan? Wow smh

  32. Chris@Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    This may be the end of his career, mainly because he relies on his speed vs his power.
    Most don’t know that GMC was a track star in High School.

  33. Wesley Says:

    Yeah, puck the Cowgirls.

  34. Anonymous Says:

    Was he even touched? And he got injured from no contact? Yeah sounds like time to hang it up.

  35. RustyRhinos Says:

  36. lambchop Says:

    That was a fast twitch injury. The girls play on turf, right? Freak accident. Hope he has a speedy recovery. Wouldn’t wish anyone to get hurt let alone a season ending injury.

    I don’t even know why they train that way. It’s so stupid. Dallas also had QBs running routes catching Dak’s passes. Great way to tank your reserves for no good reason. You’re taking reps from future insurance salesmen. Now how about start one of those guys as your starting 3T.

    Aaron Rodgers is probably like, “That’s why I hated that HC.”

  37. DoooshLaRue Says:

    Softie opted out the smart way.
    He’s so clever.

  38. Bruce Blahak Says:

    Cowboy news. Irrelevant. Stop picking scabs

  39. unbelievable Says:

    His tendon was probably at its critical point in terms of stress and load, and it was just a matter of time til this happened. Still a freak thing to see unfold, especially in a practice drill with Your starting DT lining up at RT.

    Hope the big guy recovers but I’m also okay with an NFC rival losing a starter. Dallas D-line still looks pretty good on paper even without him. As SB said, fk the cowgirls!
