“That’s Up To Raheem And Mark”October 1st, 2011
Joe can’t resist tossing some Saturday afternoon fodder out here to feed the conspiracy theorists among Bucs fans.
In the latest “Buccaneers Insider” video on Buccaneers.com, Larry Asante is interviewed about possibly starting at free safety Monday, and Asante responded by saying the usual team-first stuff but also said about the starting call, “That’s up to Raheem and Mark.”
While it’s probably just a stray comment from Asante, it was a little odd to hear a Mark Dominik reference there, and some might surely wonder whether rockstar general manager Dominik is involved in who starts for the Buccaneers.
Of course, GMs around the league have a heavy hand in preseason games, when talent evaluation is paramount. But in a regular season game?
Joe’s not buying it, but look what happened to Joe Maddon last night.
