Emotions run high during a 60-minute football game, both on the field and the sidelines.

Sometimes a combination of intensity and frustration builds up and results in a brief outburst between players or coaches.

Cameras caught a glimpse of just that Sunday as defensive tackle Gerald McCoy and defensive line coach Joe Cullen got into a heated argument near the bench. The emotions in the moment were certainly real, but don’t overreact to the incident, McCoy said Tuesday.

“Those things happen,” the veteran defensive tackle said. “It’s going to be made a bigger deal than it was. You laugh it off. I came into the meeting yesterday and said, ‘Are we still friends?’ So, yeah, I love him as a coach and as a person. He’s a great guy.

“I’m a professional and so is he but he’s our leader as far as the defensive line goes. We’re not always going to agree, we’re going to bump heads. It was a disagreement, it got heated but we apologized to each other right after. I talked to him after the game, I called him again after the game, we talked again yesterday.”

That explains a lot. “McCoy, you’re not supposed to be blocking, you’re supposed to be tackling!!!” – Cullen
I’m probably paraphrasing.

Ray Lewis and company were on Mon night talking about Sue taking plays off and how nuts it drove them. I sure hope they don’t watch McCoy as they will be at a loss for words . Finally a coach quit babying this fake but talented head case. Great job Cullen , McCoy is a thief that gives full effort about 30 percent of the time and always finds away to get out of the game especially on the last drive………. I assure this is a big deal as he is a leader of our team and I bet that… Read more »

This really isn’t a big deal. Side line arguments do happen. But, I do have a lot of admiration for Coach Cullen. I thinks he has done a good job and i do love his fire. During the Atlanta game, when it looked like there was a safety, Coach Cullen was on the field letting Ed “Check Out My Guns” have it. The no safety call was right. But, I love his energy. he reminds me of Coach Marinelli.

I know and that poor guy probably does nothing but yell. Listening to him talk it sounds like hes got NO voice left.
