(AUDIO) Josh McCown Doesn’t Take the Game Manager Label as a Slight
Bucs QB Josh McCown joined The Booger and Ryan Show to discuss training camp and the upcoming season.
McCown said that it’s humbling to come into camp as the starting QB for the Bucs. He tries to approach it with a sense of gratitude and humbleness.
McCown admitted that he feels a little bit of pressure because he doesn’t want to let Lovie Smith or the fans down but most of the pressure on him comes from himself. Great players put the pressure on themselves and that’s what McCown said he is doing.
What can we expect from Jeff Tedford’s offense? McCown said that you’ll likely see some college traits and even mentioned Chip Kelly’s style when discussing Tedford’s offense. McCown said they’ll look to be efficient with the ball and the scheme is “fresh” and “welcomed.”
Many have labeled McCown as a game manager. He said that he doesn’t consider it a slight. Every QB in the NFL McCown said is a game manager in some form or fashion. It’s what you can do past being a game manager that makes you great.
