GMC Selection Exonerates Mark DominikDecember 27th, 2012
Joe often remarks how Bucs fans must have someone to hate. Whether it is Sabby the Goat or Myron Lewis, Barrett Ruud or Quincy Black, Raheem Morris or Jim Bates, Bucs fans seemingly are not happy if they cannot scream about a player/coach to perfect strangers in a bar or at producers fielding phone calls at a sports radio station.
For two years, Bucs defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was roasted by many fans, and in connection, so too was Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik.
“He can’t draft, look at McCoy,” Dominik’s detractors would bellow to no one in particular.
Never mind that GMC was always hurt; hardly no fault of any general manager. But, lo and behold, the first season GMC is healthy, despite being constantly double- and triple-teamed after Adrian Clayborn went down with an injury, GMC made the Pro Bowl yesterday.
Isn’t it interesting that the Bucs had the worst run defense last year, and with virtually the same cast of characters (with the addition of another Dominik pick, Lavonte David), the defense, with coaching for a change, becomes of the best run-stopping crews in the NFL? All within one season!
Perhaps the Dominik haters should find another target now that GMC is cemented as one of the NFL’s elite?
