Joel Glazer: The Buc(k) Stops HereMarch 19th, 2013
Bucs co-chairman Joel Glazer made his annual visit with local scribes at the NFL owners meeting in Phoenix today and like Bucs fans, he is irritated that the Bucs are still looking for their first postseason win since the Super Bowl.
In short, Glazer stated the blame for lackluster seasons since, ultimately, stops at the conference room door of the Bucs’ ownership group, so Twitters Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times.
@NFLSTROUD: Glazer: “I don’t know how to describe how it feels. It rips you apart on the inside. Every fan feels that way. There’s no question we have to take responsibility.”
Well, what Glazer said is both noble and true. He is the man who hires people who are supposed to build the football program.
At the end of the day, and Joe is certain Glazer would admit this, he is not steeped in the intricacies of player personnel moves nor is he a football coach on the level of those collecting NFL paychecks.
That’s why he hires people to build his team. He delegates authority, as most owners do.
Glazer is not George Halas or Al Davis, men who wore all the hats in the football organization. The Bucs have both won and lost without Glazer holding critical positions in the Bucs’ front office.
