WATCH: Josh McCown cries after Bucs fall to 1-8

It could get worse, Bears fans. After suffering a fifth straight loss and falling to 1-8 with the Bucs, former Bears quarterback Josh McCown cried during Sunday’s postgame press conference. He clearly shows more emotion than the player he once backed up.

From Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times:

This one must have really hurt, for crying out loud.

Bucs quarterback Josh McCown fell into the arms of offensive coordinator Marcus Arroyo in the locker room and sobbed like he had lost more than a football game Sunday. On his way to his post-game press conference, he hugged coach Lovie Smith’s wife, MaryAnne, and the tears flowed. When he got to the podium and was asked why he was so emotional after the 27-17 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, McCown looked down and took five seconds to compose himself before answering.

“One and eight,” McCown said, his voice cracking. “One and eight and, uh, one and eight. You want to give your teammates and the coaches and the fans and your family and everybody here better than that. It just hurts. It hurts.”
