Q: Do you see (Bucs GM Mark) Dominik getting the boot this year as well?
A: I can see why he might survive a purge, yes. The primary reason would be that he did everything ownership asked him to do for three years when he first took over. He gutted the team of its aging star players, which was not popular but necessary, and he started the rebuilding process through the draft. He’s taken some heat for some poor draft picks but every GM misses and he has been given very little credit for the hits he’s had. Mike Williams in the fourth round was a very good pick; trading up to get Doug Martin in the first was another and getting Lavonte David in the second was exceptional. Look, no one argues the Bucs are not a talented team and it was Dominik who oversaw the acquisition of all that talent. He seems to have done his job about as well as can rightfully be expected.
