    Brian Iwuh is playing in the place of Lance Briggs, not Urlacher. He has a bruised knee. Just a bruise that needs rest.

    Mccoy may have been a bright spot for the Bucs vs Patriots, up until he told everyone how over matched he and the defense was against Tom Brady and the Pats offense. He actually called him Mr. Brady, i mean how embarrassing for a top draft pick and a supposed leader of the defense.

    Brady has been ;league MVP, sauper bowl MVP and has rings winning 3 out of 4 trips. NO disrespect for McCoy, but what has he done? I find nothing wrong in the whole “Mr. Brady” deal. Being a Lions fan I wanted Suh over McCoy, but I liked McCoy’s character coming out too, and am sure he’s fun to be around in the locker room etc. Wish ‘em the best of luck and we’ll see ya’s week 1
