I hope Shiano puts him in his place and has him covering Kick offs to start the season. The guy has not shown he's a starter in this league much less a "star" that he promotes himself as.
Not saying hes a bad guy but I'm just tired of the All Show No go with this guy.
Either you don't watch any games or you have no clue what you're looking at.
Before McCoy was injured this past season he was a beast.
Stats aren't everything/don't tell the whole story. Learn it. Remember it.
DT's consistently getting sacks year in and year out are the result of one of two things...either:
a) a once in a lifetime type player who redefines the position (hi warren, how have you been lately?)
b) a breakdown/mistake by the quarterback (not necessarily his line...but the quarterback himself).
a dt's job is not necessarily to get stats, but to apply pressure. McCoy was beastly last year...he and Grimm were the lifeblood of the defense. He more than did his job well enough to be considered a starter (pro-bowler?...maybe not...but starter, definitely).
Also, the injuries that happened to him the last two years will not happen to him in the future. Those are once in a lifetime injuries, and the surgical fix for them precludes them from ever happening again. He will have to find some other way to land on IR if he does manage it.
