Tampa Bay Buccaneers great Warren Sapp was a force along the defensive line. He is baffled about how the Bucs are using current defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. Sapp think McCoy should be making a lot more plays but the Bucs defensive schemes don’t play to his strengths.

“He’s not getting the opportunities,” Sapp said of McCoy, via the Tampa Tribune. “That’s what it is. I mean, I don’t get it. Am I the only one who’s watching tape here? I’m trying to figure out the plan that you have here.”

The tipping point might have been when he saw McCoy beat the guard on one side on back to back plays, only to be moved elsewhere on the line the following play.

“I was screaming at the television set – ‘Get back over there,’” Sapp said. “You just beat this guy twice and almost had a sack both times, so now come back for the third down and get us off the field. But the defense says he has to be on that side. And the defense says he has to be on that side because of the threat of a draw. I’m sorry. I just don’t get it sometimes.”
