Bucs Know They Need An Upgrade At CBMarch 19th, 2013
Funny thing about NFL front office types. They often don’t need to hear the wailing of fans and ranting comments on the Internet to know where their team stinks.
There’s this thing called “tape.” It is an outdated term better known as “video.” The front office types and coaches study the game video over and over again, unlike most of us.
Imagine how ill the Bucs’ suits and coaches got this past season? The vast majority of Bucs fans wouldn’t dare watch film over and over again to revisit how dismal the Bucs cornerbacks played.
Joe can only assume Team Glazer has stock in Beecham, the maker of TUMS.
In case you thought rock star general manager Mark Dominik wasn’t aware of the craters he has in his roster for starting cornerbacks, think again, Twitters eye-RAH! Kaufman of the Tampa Tribune.
eye-RAH! is out in Arizona for the NFL owners meetings and he has spoken to Dominik personally about this issue.

Joe just cannot fathom the Bucs going into training camp with the likes of Eric Wright and Danny Gorrer listed atop the cornerback depth chart.
Joe is pretty confident somewhere along the way Dominik will sign a corner if he is unable to rework a contract with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis (remember folks, the Jets have to grant Dominik permission to speak to Revis’ agents; it takes two to work out a deal), and he very likely will draft two corners next month.
