Mark Dominik Talks Jameis

September 22nd, 2015

mark dominik 1120Bucs fans were giddy about how the pewter pirates seemingly rose from the dead and punked Drew Brees in his own crib.

It was a nailbiting, exhilarating win, and Bucs fans are drinking in the good vibes.

One guy who seemed impressed was former Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik. Hosting a wrap-up show on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Dominik lauded the effort.

“The Bucs battled through this one and ran the ball fairly effectively,” Dominik said. “Jameis Winston, the big thing I sit there and tell everybody about young quarterbacks is with young quarterbacks, don’t turn the ball over and give your team a chance to win.

“Jameis made a couple of really special throws this game I thought to put this team ahead, and being able to hold up for a victory.

“I have to give a lot of credit to the Bucs defense. They played really well. Force Drew Brees to throw under pressure. He didn’t make lot of great throws. And at the end of the game, when [the Saints] had a chance there, they just didn’t convert. They didn’t look comfortable.” The Bucs did a great job. I don’t care what happened Week One. The Bucs came out in Week Two and played a Saints team at home and they won.”

This is a high compliment for America’s Quarterback, Bucs signal-caller Jameis Winston. Dominik, leading up to the draft, made no secret he would have steered clear of young Jameis, and instead would have pounced on Marcus Mariota.

So for a guy who was not in Jameis’ corner to say how Jameis had special throws, that is a pretty high praise.

    Jameis played better for sure then his first game by a country mile. I know it was his second game and he will admit he has long way to go moving forward. I would like to think that by this time next year he will be seeing all the wide open revivers he wasn’t seeing yesterday.
    But hell ya the guy got his ass kicked then fought to improve.
    If I see that a few more times I will be getting a 3 jersey lol

    “Dominik, leading up to the draft, made no secret he would have steered clear of young Jameis, and instead would have pounced on Marcus Mariota.”

    …and that is exactly why the Bucs’s talent level is having to be rebuilt. When he starts talking about talent evaluation, I would just turn his mic off.

    A little off topic, obviously, but I want to wish fellow JBF follower, loyal Bucs fan, and my friend, 1987 a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! Hope you have a great one buddy!

    There is a reason he is our former GM. Laughable that the Joes think he was even decent at his job

  6. Erik with Clean Athletics Says:

    I too would like to say Happy Bday to 87…. Your boy Jameis looked way better this week. Fingers crossed that we can build on this and have a successful season. IMO, that would be at least a solid 8-8.

    87 happy birthday savage!!

  9. StPeteBucsFan Says:


    Happy birthday guy!! You already got your present early when we picked #3!

    I’m not going to rank on Dominik because he had a no win situation. The Glazers were still distracted mentally and financially by ManU for much of his tenure.
    The forced him to hire coaches on the cheap.

    But I really like what Licht has done with this team. 2 solid drafts…this past draft may end up being great…four NFL starters…two at the most important positions..QB and MLB…that’s just amazing!!! Licht has done pretty well with FA pickups this year and even with last years disaster headline by the two giant busts Licht found Jack Smith.

    I didn’t see anywhere that it’s 87’s birthday. Who knew the old FSU codger has entered the youth of old age.

  12. Buc1987 Says:

    Thanks to all of you.

  13. Buc1987 Says:

    I got a present early from New Orleans. I’m hoping to get a belated one from Texas.

    Go Bucs!

    Happy Birthday ’87. May this day be better than all the days before, but less than those to come.

    I have watched the Saints game three times, and the play that keeps getting me to rewind is the deep pass to Murphy while rolling out. That was the kind of throw (AND catch)that wins games.
    Also, Murphy seems to be a better receiver this year.

    Jameis Winston had the 7th highest overall score for PFF last week. He was rated better than Aaron Rodgers, Joe Flacco, Russell Wilson, Eli Manning and of course Marcus Mariota (who was ranked 32!) His QB rating of 114.6 was 5th best for all QB (better than Tom Brady!). The big difference between this year and last year is Winston’s release time of 2.63 seconds (9th overall). Great game Jameis! Hard to image it could have been ever better if not for the fumble and a couple of missed throws. He has arrived.
