Shaun King Goes National With Dominik CriticismJune 7th, 2013
Former Bucs quarterback Shaun King’s failing grades for rockstar general manager Mark Dominik moved from Tampa Bay airwaves and Internet space to the national NBC Sports Network studios yesterday.
NBC NFL guru Mike Florio asked King, who is a busy analyst for NBC, to explain his harsh critiques of Dominik. King obliged. One of three quarterbacks to lead the Bucs to the NFC title game, King made it clear that he likes Dominik personally but can’t let that cloud his judgment.
“It has not been good,” King said of Dominik’s reign. King, among other takes, explained that the Bucs’ failed secondary of years past drove the Darrelle Revis trade, so Dominik shouldn’t be lauded for that bold move.
King went on to say he hears Bucs fans pounding him for his wide-sweeping Dominik criticism. “If you criticize [Dominik], it’s almost like they think you have something against him,” said King, who reminded viewers he has nothing against the Bucs GM.”
