    Gerald McCoy Broke PFF's Grading System

    Pro Football Focus @PFF

    Gerald McCoy played the best 19 snaps you'll likely see from an interior D-Lineman. Sack, hit, hurry, batted pass, and an absurd +8.2 grade


    Gerald McCoy is ridiculous.

    The Buccaneers' franchise player posted an 8.2 grade on 19 snaps.

    Eight point two. On nineteen snaps.

    To put that into perspective, over the course of the entire 2013 preseason, only one defensive tackle (Geno Atkins) posted a grade higher than 8.2, and it took him over 70 snaps to do so. PFF grades are cumulative, which means McCoy racked up positive marks at a ridiculous pace on Saturday night.

    For more perspective: McCoy's 19 snaps finished with a better grade than Haloti Ngata, Paul Soliai, and Linval Joseph earned over the entire season last year. He put in a season's worth of positive work in a quarter of a preseason game.


    McCoy is a dominant player, and a true game-changer on defense. Teams have to scheme to stop him, or he'll simply stop every run and pass play before it starts.

    Apart from McCoy, fellow linemen Euclid Cummings and Scott Solomon earned solid grades for their jobs done along the defensive line. Solomon got some time with the first team defense, showing that he may be an under-the-radar player worth watching as the preseason continues.

    Fellow camp standouts Matthew Masafilo and Danny Lansanah both earned good grades for their work against the run, while Akeem Spence posted a strong pass-rush grade.

    Starting defensive ends Michael Johnson and Adrian Clayborn were among the lowest-graded Bucs, but they only earned grades barely below zero. Still, on 30 combined pass rush snaps, the duo compiled zero pressures on the quarterback, which is a big concern for the Buccaneers. Gerald McCoy is great, but the ends must get pressure to make this defense work.

    Six of the nine players charged with a missed tackle on the Buccaneer defense were cornerbacks. This can't make Lovie Smith happy.

    I hope he can build on his success in the season. If he can this defense can dominate again. Our biggest area of weakness looks like our secondary.

    I really hope they sit McCoy after one series this Saturday. I would think the coaches have seen enough to say hes ready for week one. After seeing what happened to Darnell Dockett I'm just really wary of injuries to key players.

    For those of you who ever doubted McCoy or said he was a bust....shame on you. the quickest and most disruptive interior lineman in all of football, McCoy is learning and getting better from Warren Sapp and its showing. Thank God McCoy plays for us. We need to lock him up ASAP!
    Im officially on the the Mike Glennon Bandwagon. This is our guy.
