Watch Gerald McCoy destroy the Jaguars offensive line

Watch Gerald McCoy destroy the Jaguars offensive line

Spoiler: McCoy’s still really good. Gerald McCoy is good. Really good. And he’s been wrecking the Jacksonville Jaguars offensive line throughout the second preseason game. He looks like he’s in All-Pro form again. That boy Gerald is hungry #SiegeTheDay #Bucs pic.twitter.com/GTui4HAORK— Zac BloBner (@ZacOnTheMic) August 18, 2017 Plays like that are just beautiful to watch, and exactly why Gerald McCoy is one of the best defensive tackles in the league. With Chris Baker and Clinton McDonald next to him, the Bucs have a very good group of defensive tackles. But McCoy’s problem...

The eight key Bucs Gerald McCoy thinks are less important than Jameis Winston

The eight key Bucs Gerald McCoy thinks are less important than Jameis Winston

The star defensive tackle talked about the franchise and the franchise quarterback on Hard Knocks. That Hard Knocks season premiere was pretty cool, but one moment stood out to me: Gerald McCoy listing a bunch of Bucs players to emphasize that Jameis Winston is more important to the team than all of them. That happened in an interview that was framed as taking place after McCoy accidentally brushed against Winston (a massive no-no—no one touches the quarterback in practice). Here’s what McCoy said: “3 is the franchise. Forget 93, forget 13, 11 and 1—I don’t know what he’s...

Greg Schiano says the Ohio State defensive line is better than his Bucs group

Greg Schiano says the Ohio State defensive line is better than his Bucs group

Schiano did say that Gerald McCoy was a great player, though. I know, I know, we all want to forget the Greg Schiano era. It eh....was not a particularly pleasant two years of futility, for Tampa Bay Buccaneers fans. But hey, the man’s still around and sometimes he comments on things related to his time with the Bucs. Like yesterday, when he told the Big Ten Network (after being prompted) that his current defensive line at Ohio State, where he’s the defensive coordinator, is better than any defensive line he’s ever been around—including in the NFL. “It is [the most talented...

Winston sees promising season waiting for Bucs

Saturday 3 a.m. Day One, and Gerald McCoy ran into The Franchise. Yikes. The Bucs were going through their paces in the broiling morning – a morning so hot you could see the birds sweat. Being McCoy, of course, he sliced through the Bucs' offensive line and rushed toward the quarterback. The team was only […]

Check out Gerald McCoy’s Hulk cleats

Check out Gerald McCoy’s Hulk cleats

Gerald McCoy sure has a kind of style. Gerald McCoy likes to have some fun. And he really likes comic books and superheroes. So now he’s coming to training camp looking like someone who stepped out of Double Dragon, and wearing Hulk cleats in training camp. Gerald McCoy with the Hulk cleats pic.twitter.com/L6dfjBVJVm— Casey Phillips (@bucinsider) July 28, 2017 Those cleats are actually really cool. Can I get them somewhere? Hit me up Gerald! I can do without the kimono and fan, though. Not really my style.

MMQB snubs Jameis Winston and Mike Evans on top 400 list

MMQB snubs Jameis Winston and Mike Evans on top 400 list

Apparently Mike Evans and Jameis Winston aren’t even top 100 players. For some obscure reason, Andy Benoit of The MMQB decided to rank the top 400 NFL players. I have no clue why they did that, nor why they think that would be a productive thing to do, but they did it. So there’s that. In any case, now that that ranking is out there you know we have to talk about it. So let’s start with one positive and one negative, before complaining mostly about the negative. Positive: at 16 players the Bucs outperform the average of 12.5. Cool. Negative: Gerald McCoy is the team’s...

The Buccaneers’ Gerald McCoy is done with people disrespecting him

The Bucs defensive tackle lashed out on Twitter. Gerald McCoy is usually pretty congenial on Twitter, but every once in a while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle shows a sharp tongue and lashes out. As he did today, when he chastised some unidentified people for disrespecting him. They won't appreciate you until you're gone. Soon enough though. Then we'll see.— Gerald McCoy (@Geraldini93) July 24, 2017 No more being quiet. I'm done holding my tongue.

Gerald McCoy is not overpaid, and we’re looking at contract values in the wrong way

Gerald McCoy is not overpaid, and we’re looking at contract values in the wrong way

We should be looking at contract values relative to the salary cap, instead of in absolute terms. NFL contracts are interesting things. We all obsess over them a little, talking about this and that player begin overpaid, but we have very few concrete ways of measuring the relative pay of players. In part because the salary cap rises over time, in part because rating players is fairly subjective, and in part because good players don’t hit the market very often so you’re bound to need to bid high to get them—there are few alternatives. Over at ESPN, though, Bill Barnwell tried to...
