Overshadowed by the impressive play of Detroit Lions rookie defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy is beginning to make a little noise.
McCoy, the third overall pick in April's draft and one spot behind Suh, has collected three sacks in his last two games, including two in the Buccaneers' 17-10 loss to the Ravens Sunday evening.
The 6-foot-4, 295-pound McCoy also finished with three tackles – two of which resulted in lost yardage – and two quarterback hurries. He made quite an impression with Ravens center Matt Birk."He's a good player," Birk said. "I told him after the game that he's a good player. He's got great quickness and plays hard. He's certainly a talent. I don't know the guy, but I hear he's a good guy. If he's got the right attitude, the sky's the limit for him."
After the loss, McCoy had little to say about his personal performance.
"I'd give all that back for a 'W,'" he said. "That doesn't mean anything to me. I'm a team guy. It's not enough that we didn't get the 'W.'"
