The Buccaneers’ offensive line had a rough preseason debut against the Jaguars, prompting major concerns about the ability of the blockers to block effectively when the real games start.
Defensive lineman Gerald McCoy dismisses the concerns that have arisen in the wake of that poor performance.
“Get over it,” McCoy said Thursday, via JoeBucsFan.com. “It’s one preseason game. Move on. We have three more. So what if they look, let’s just, you know, hypothetically say [the offensive linemen] look terrible all of preseason. Who cares? You know, we’re out here working and we know what we have to improve on. And we’re just keep working until we improve.”
The only problem is that the performance wasn’t hypothetically terrible in the preseason opener. It was actually terrible. And it was bad enough to get starting right guard Jamon Meredith removed from the starting lineup and placed at backup tackle. And it could result in a trade for Alex Boone or a scouring of the waiver wire or other available avenues for making a bad situation not quite so bad.
