    So glad this guy is not our GM. He made so many blunders I can see why no one has called him for a interview. Now he just gives advice that one with any smarts will discard. ESPN needs to upgrade their talking heads as they lack credibility.

    1. 1.1


      In my life I’ve found that it’s wisest to learn how to recognize good advice when you hear it, independent of where the advice comes from. Some of the best advice I’ve gotten has come from people I don’t like or respect. I’m also glad Dominik is no longer our GM because he was bad at evaluating players and that’s a key part of being a GM. However, he was good at other things like managing the cap, but that’s not enough. He said don’t trade away the chance to take a franchise QB if you need one because you can’t really compete otherwise. Makes sense to me.

    Bucs Capacitor

    Russell Wilson – 3rd round pick
    Tom Brady – 6th round pick

    You’re not really helping your case when you site them as reasons not to trade down, Dominik.

      Bucs Capacitor- your examples are the only two examples in the history of the game when taking qb’s late in the draft have worked out. I agree with Mark when you are in position to take a qb you take the best qb on the board its a simple, never do you hear “we are waiting till the 4th round to find our franchise qb”, lol

      1. 2.1.1


        Mark Brunell – 5th round, Rich Gannon – 4th round, Brad Johnson – 9th round, Matt Hasselbeck – 6th round, Mark Rypien – 6th round, Joe Thiesman – 4th round, Bart Starr – 17th round, Roger Staubach – 10th round, Joe Montana – 3rd round



          Blacehart- So your saying we should wait till the later rounds to draft our franchise qb?, lol



            jongruden – No, I’m not saying that. Just that there are more than 2 late-round guys in the history of the game that have worked out.

    If we were going to roll with McClown we woulda hired Tresman as our O.C.. He was lauded by Josh, got an interview, not hired. Since we don’t want McCown, we must not want Glennon, or we would’ve given him more playing time. That says we’re going Q.B.. So we know Dom would take Mariota, who will Licht, and Lovie want?

  4. 4


    Funny how another person’s opinion always seems more credible when it matches our own. Dominik likes Mariota’s character and hopes he can show he is capable of being a NFL style QB. The other choice is to like Winston’s mastery of a NFL system and hope he is capable of maturing. Most of us mature when required to do so. Some might think the Patriot’s Gronk is a little on the juvenile side.

    1. 4.1


      Gronk is childish but you won’t see him shopliftng crab from a supermarket, lets not down play the maturity aspect , Vince Young never did

    The severe likelihood, after this off-season, is that not one of the Bucs draft picks from the Mark Dominick era, apart from Gerald McCoy, will still be on the roster for 2015. That is a searing indictment of Dominick’s total ineptitude as a talent evaluator and at his utter inability to put together a scouting network capable of drafting NFL quality players. Consequently, any opinion voiced by him regarding who the Bucs should select with any of their draft picks is utterly irrelevant.
