PewterReport.com and Westshore Financial present the Pewter Nation Podcast, a weekly audio hour of news, analysis and inside scoop on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers delivered with a dose of humor and insight from Bucs beat writers Scott Reynolds, Mark Cook, Taylor Jenkins and Matt Matera, who also serves as the show’s producer. Look for the Pewter Nation Podcast each week on PewterReport.com for your listening pleasure during the 2019 offseason.

With Scott Reynolds out of town, the rest of the guys are joined by former Tampa Bay Buccaneer offensive linemen and now radio host on 95.3 WDAE, Ian Beckles!

We’re not just done with Gerald McCoy yet as Beckles gives his thoughts on McCoy’s time as a Buc along with how he felt his departing situation was handled recently.

The discussion then turns to the Bucs lack of a running game along with the defensive problems as well as Beckles telling some stories about his time as a player on the Bucs, including a story regarding Hardy Nickerson.

We then turn our attention to the current product of the Bucs, as Ian and the rest of the group give their opinions on how Devin White will do as a rookie, and if Bruce Arians still can improve this team. Before the show ends, Beckles gives his Bucs record prediction for the 2019 season. Stay tuned!

  1. Ian Beckles has nothing good to say about Bucs, never has. I don’t even need to listen to him, same old story.

  2. Ian Beckles perfectly explains why many fans hate Gerald McCoy’s game and excuses. He calls out Gerald’s charming of the media without any worthwhile impact for the Bucs on the field for 9 years.

  3. Sapp was able to bring out the best of the people around him. McCoy never was able to do the same thing. He had talent but he could not create momentum, because he had the charisma of margarine.

  4. I don’t agree with Beckles opinion of 6-10. That’s a safe guess and if they do better you can say hey Vegas agreed with me. Anyways I see 8-8 possibly better if they have little luck with injuries etc.

    His take on McCoy was nice to hear from players perspective. He said what I thought he’s soft. He’s also not great just was pretty good. He does roll on ground too much, he always came out games too much, he missed too many games, he was a soft guy period. It’s not even debatable. Arians and Bowles saw it right away.

  5. It’s alright to criticize McCoy for some of the comments he’s made, the pettiness and some plays he should have made while he was here, but to criticize a player for getting hurt is just Low. You kept pointing out to us that “I played the game” as if to validate your comments about player toughness, but your opinion is still ignorant because you don’t know every players pain tolerance… Furthermore you accurately point out McCoy’s pettiness with the Jersey # and not getting the respect he feels he deserves, Okay I look up your career stats which was over after 9 years by the way: No Pro Bowls – No 1st,2nd, or even 3rd string All Pro Team. You were basically just a role player at best on a bad football team but somehow you want to try and convince us that your opinion of Gerald McCoy matters more than those who voted him to 6 Pro Bowls in a row and 2 All Pro teams in the same length of time that you played…. You would do better just to come right out and say that “I just don’t like McCoy” than to try and give some expert analysis when you clearly don’t know what you’re talking about. I think you need to take a look in the mirror Ian Beckles and you may see the word “Petty” stamped on your forehead.

  6. @seat26 It’s easy to elevate the play around you when you have Barber and Brooks and Lynch and Rice on the same D.

  7. I enjoyed listening to Beckles here. I am taking what he said to heart. Good stuff.

    It is probably Diaz that rubs me the wrong way and makes me not listen to their program regularly. (I don’t hate Ron. He is just not my kind of guy. I’ll take him in smaller doses. Nothing wrong with that.)

  9. McCoy can humblebrag his way to @Captain-Sly‘s heart all he wants. On the field, McCoy was awful. For as fast as McCoys first step was, he was always late to make a play and he NEVER finished. In 9 years, he had 10 takeaways. And spare me the Pro Bowl discussion. Lavonte David was the Bucs best defensive player every year and only made it once. McCoy was simply popular in the media.

    I did love Beckles explanation of McCoy’s butthurt feelings over the number 93. McCoy’s nemesis going back to college replaced him and took his number, even though McCoy was a 9 year Buc and Suh is on his 4th team. Ownership signed off on the number supposedly and if that’s the case, I think there may have been a decision made on McCoy’s suggestion that he will retire to the ring of honor.

  10. Sorry..I’m not a big Beckles fan. As I can recall, He got Beat like drum..when he played for us..lotsa times.
    He’s one to talk about GMC when he would be left in the dust tryin to hold him during a game.
