Dominik Monitoring Da’Quan Bowers On Twitter

July 7th, 2011

No stone goes unturned when it comes to rockstar Bucs general manager Mark Dominik scouring the universe to learn about players.

Asked today on The Dan Patrick Show for any kind of update on the somewhat mysterious million-dollar knee belonging to second-round pick Da’Quan Bowers, Dominik said his hands are tied during the lockout when it comes to monitoring and managing Bowers’ injury and rehabilitation. But that hasn’t stopped Dominik from using all angles, so he told guest host Mike Florio, of ProFootballTalk.com.

“I wish there was more that we could do. I follow him on Twitter,” Dominik said, referring to Bowers and trying to gain any knowledge of his progresss.

Dominik went on to say, from various media reports, Bowers is “obviously” doing what he’s supposed to be doing.

Interestingly, Dominik said Bowers had been rushing his rehab earlier in the year and when the lockout was briefly lifted the Bucs used that time to advise Bowers to “calm down and work on strength over conditioning.”

Dominik went on to repeat his we-know-knees confidence in his training staff, referring to the team’s success with Kellen Winslow and Cadillac Williams. 

Joe had to laugh when Dominik said he follows Bowers on Twitter. Knowing all the ridiculous personal information players are Tweeting, Joe just can’t imagine Dominik sifting through all that BS.

    Just another example of Dom doing everything he can.

    Maybe it was Dom’s instruction that Bowers keep working on his strength that kept him from the minicamp.

    Hunter:

    1) Don’t have to “have” Twitter to monitor Twitter.

    2) Joe won’t out the player, but Joe knows Dominik came down on a Bucs player last year for some bizarre if not outrageous Twitter posts.

    And also making the right choice passing on Antonio Bryant.

    “And also making the right choice passing on Antonio Bryant.”

    Unfortunately, it took Dom to make a 9 million dollar “franchise” mistake, to finally “pass on” him! But, glad he lives and learns!

    I love a good blog but hate the twits who obsess with Twitter. What sort of idiocy have we descended into that we believe anything worth communicating can be expressed in 140 characters? I can’t even fart in less than 140 characters. Is that worth listening to? What a dumbass Beavis & Butthead culture we’ve become.

  10. Hunter Says:

    @Joe: I know, just wondering cause he said “follow” lol. And if he’s doing that to players then Geno Hayes coud get into a lot of trouble….have you seen his posts?

    Joe here,

    @Hunter – Joe doesn’t run a gossip/TMZ site here. Sure, Joe sees the stuff on Twitter and Facebook. Great entertainment, if you have nothing better to do.

    Twitter is what you make it out to be. If you follow the OchoStinkos, Paris Hilton’s of the world, then you get crapola.

    If you follow well-informed, reasoned people, you’ll be the smartest person on the block. No different than someone who reads the National Enquirer over the Wall Street Journal. Just because someone reads the National Enquirer doesn’t mean libraries should be shut down and anything printed on paper is worthless.

    Personally, Joe finds Twitter to be a priceless gem for information.

    Joe…I guess in your profession it could come in handy for news bytes. I was more referring to the culture that’s been formed around it in general. Since I’m not in the media or affected by it even indirectly (like Dominik for example) it’s just more an annoyance than an asset. Just my take.

    As Sean(Forrester)Connery once said about the National Inquirer.

    I read The Times for dinner……but this is my dessert.
