Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis revealed on a radio show he has been playing hurt, sort of. Talking on 620 WDAE Thursday night, Revis revealed the reason for the zone coverage is because he has not been his usual self. Earlier in the year, I didn’t have the explosion to play press; the receiver would just run the (vertical) 9-route on me and I didn’t have the stamina to do that play in and play out, especially playing press. I’m starting to get that back now, which is awesome because I like to be in receivers faces and try to put my hands on them and try to be physical with them. He would readdress those comments today via Just like I said on the radio last night – it’s the plays that if a guy is running you off four or five times, you need those reps, you need that build up. I wasn’t getting that, I wasn’t feeling comfortable even running from press coverage to go. It’s just something that’s going to take some time. It’s clear Revis has not been 100%. But if he is slowly regaining his old form, the Bucs are fortunate to still have any degree of Revis they can have.

Bucs’ Darrelle Revis says knee kept him out of man coverage

Gerald McCoy says coaches were upset with him for helping up an opponent

Gerald McCoy is not the type of person that you would want to meet in the trenches. At 6’4″ and 300 pounds McCoy, a former pro bowler, is an imposing presence. However for being such a large strong man he has streaks of kindness that his coaches aren’t necessarily happy about. “I had my D-line coaches get on to me the other day. Well, not get on to me, try to get on to me...

Bucs Coaches Yell At DT Gerald McCoy For Good Sportsmanship
