Nugent Another Black Mark On Glazer Scorecard

October 6th, 2009

About one-third or more of Mike Holmgren’s 2010 head coach/GM salary was flushed down the Bucs company toilet yesterday when the team cut kicker Mike Nugent, who never looked great in Tampa Bay from the day he arrived.

Mark Dominik is growing into a poor vault watcher for the cash-conscious Glazers. And that’s not a good way for young Dominik and Raheem The Dream to keep their jobs past this season. 

Joe imagines the Glazers were just getting over having flushed $2.5 million on Luke McCown’s signing bonus and $2 million on quarterback turned cheerleader Byron Leftwich, both of whom cost their well paid rookie quarterback Josh Freeman valuable preseason reps.

At times Joe tries to think like a Glazer, and Joe has to believe that if Chucky comes off the Bucs payroll next season, Team Glazer might highly covet a big name coach/GM to jumpstart the franchise.

    That’s a lot of money wasted this year that could have been used on MU interest payments. That is what a Glazer would think.

    I just have two words:

    Mike Holmgren

    There it is again Joe. It’s all Chuckys fault. Does his 4million make that big of a difference to the Glazers. I believe they would be 43 million under the cap if he had taken another coaching job. Take their money Coach Gruden because they are NOT going to give it to anyone else.

    Joe here,

    JK, where do you read anyone blaming Gruden? You lost me. I sure wasn’t.

  6. JK Says:

    Admin, You pretty much stated that the Glazerhouses would have spent some money on coaches if it wasn’t for Gruden being in their pocket. If that’s not what you meant then I am sorry. For me it’s hard to think anything else the way you continually bring him up in your blogs.

  7. admin Says:

    Joe here,

    JK, I only stated that the Glazers might be much more likely to look toward a newer, big name coach if Chucky comes off the payroll. That’s in no way blaming Chucky. Heck, he wanted to stay here and worked his butt off to keep the job and win games. Plus he would have been crazy not to take the Monday Night Football gig.

    can you tell me how much money the Glazers are paying out his year for people who are not even on the staff anymore. It would be interesting/upsetting.

  9. Joe Says:


    $10 million a year for Chucky and Bruce Almighty. Their salaries come off the books once they are working for another NFL team.
