“Glazers Could Be Infatuated With Shanahan”

"I hate Ira Kaufman. And just when I thought my job was safe."

"I hate Ira Kaufman. And just when I thought my job was safe."

Esteemed Tampa Tribune NFL writer eye-RAH! Kaufman isn’t ready to wager that Bruce Allen and Jon Gruden will remain at One Buc Place much longer.

Speaking on ESPN 1040 AM today, Kaufman gave the dynamic duo a 25 percent chance of getting fired by the Glazers in a matter of days.

“I think the Glazers could be infatuated with [Mike] Shanahan. … I’ve got a gnawing suspicion that a change is still possible here,” Kaufman told the Fabulous Sports Babe, who will leave the station and afternoon drive partner Scot Brantley soon.

Yes, Kaufman is the guy who reported Brett Favre was coming to Tampa. But one screw up doesn’t destroy his credibility.

Kaufman has covered the NFL for years, and he is the lone representative from the Tampa Bay market on the Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Board of Selectors. Those are the seasoned buffet grazers who choose who gets a bust in Canton.

    From the pictures on Ira’s column he has not missed many buffets. BTW what has Shanahan done since Elway retired?
