Why Is Kellen Winslow Bitter?June 21st, 2012
One of the most bizarre statements by Kellen Winslow during his now famous “toes-on-the-line/woulda-take-a-bullet for [Raheem]” speech was Winslow moaning that the Bucs “fired the wrong dude up there.”
Now unless Winslow has issues with someone on the Bucs scouting department or cafeteria staff — surely possible — just about everyone else he might have dealt with in Tampa was fired outside of rockstar general manager Mark Dominik. So it’s quite likely that the “wrong dude” is Dominik.
To Joe, the veiled reference to Dominik was obvious and completley laughable. Dominik made Winslow the game’s highest paid tight end (at the time) and rescued him from the stench that is the Browns franchise. So what beef could Winslow have with Dominik?
The man paid K2 a king’s ranswom and plopped him into an offense lacking in elite wide receivers with a quarterback that looked to him. Essentially it was a dream job for Winslow.
Joe can’t imagine why Winslow would be bitter at Dominik. Joe can only speculate as to how Winslow could be so bitter.
