But does McCoy seem to be soft compared to Suh?  Suh just looks and carries himself like a blue collar slap the spit out your mouth type. McCoy just seems to be too sensitive to be a dominate DT. IMO

Lee Roy Selmon. Off the field he was a tremendously nice, soft-spoken, sensitive man. On the field he terrorized. Not saying McCoy = Selmon, just saying a defensive lineman can have both of those sides.

Weren't Bruce Smith and Reggie White pretty gentle giants?

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

I just think McCoy is in touch with his emotions. He lost his mother at the age of 19. How can you not expect him to cry when he was thinking about his mother who helped him get that far, after all those years of work?

Watch his highlights, he's an emotional leader and a great character guy. Like the poster stated earlier, it doesnt matter as long as he is not soft on the field. Look at Ricky Williams back when he was racking up 1800 yards a season, he sounded like a baby lol

Personally I have no problems with players that break down a little on draft day. This kids are realizing a dream so I don't find any weakness in showing emotion.

This board has a bunch of koolaid drinking homers on it.   Anyone the Bucs pick is great in their eyes.   Even if they bawl like a little girl over nothing then go home and watch the Little Mermaid.

I would probably cry too knowing I just reached my goal.  Plus financial security for the rest of your life.  That would be a big day.

Some of you guys are ok with other men crying, showing emotion?  Wow.  Maybe you should be posting on the Panty board. Selmon,Smith,White?? Never saw them cry.  Nothing wrong at all with being a gentle giant, at all.  Little mermaid and sobbing ???  Someone needs to tell him, never again.  Watch the Draft video of Suh and then of McCoy....Tell me then Bucs shouldn't have moved up one spot.

Whats the difference between D Brooks crying after the super bowl and Gerald crying when you get drafted?  Both are long term goals that are extremely tough to reach.

I've been on the Suh bandwagon for awhile now and I still am not overly impressed with McCoy's tape - but it seems like the kid has some heart. With some decent coaching I think he can be something.

Say what you will about Rah but I believe most of us agree he can coach up the defense.

My take on the whole crying thing...

I don't hold a high opinion for men who cry (unless someone they love is dying or something like that)... and I CERTAINLY don't think its very manly to cry tears of joy.

That said, they can be the biggest pillow-biter in the world as long as they play well on the football field. I don't have to like them as a man. I just have to like them as a football player.

Also, just because a man acts like a sissy off the field doesn't make him a sissy ON the field.

Ok, put move me down your opinion meter, then. Make sure you move Derrick Brooks down there with me, along with some other Bucs (and NFL) greats.

Funny, I've always considered Brooks to be a manly man. I never knew you didn't think Brooks was manly.

If Tebow had broke down and cried like a baby when he was drafted - exactly like McCoy did - half of this board would be mocking him. Same if Tebow had said "The Littlest Mermaid" was his all time favorite movie.

No, the reason people pick on Tebow is because he cries EVERY time he loses... I would have completely understood if he cried after he was drafted... It's the best moment of his career... I would EXPECT most of these guys to cry...

Are you kidding me? Those guys are crying because they are finally getting a huge pay day. That's crap if you ask me. A national championship game is 100 times more emotional than a stinking draft. These guys now need to get to their teams and get to work so they can play in some meaningful games where it would make sense to cry if they lose.

No he cried because his mother passed away 2 years ago, and he dedicated yesterday to her..  Have a bit of compassion ...

Bucs-Lightning already World Champions. Rays Next!!!
