After a disasterous 2011 season, the Bucs canned the entire coaching staff but left GM and scout group intact. Was this a good move?

One of the big questions confronting this organization going forward: Do they have the right GM?
Do they have the right QB?
Who's the next coach?
Pretty unsettling.

Hiring a mature disciplinarian coach will do wonders to get things going in the right direction...but you have to wonder how that type of coach will coalesce with the current front office.

I think he should have been fired with the rest but I can see why they kept him.

He is more than satisfactory from a draft perspective, but the Bucs need a veteran pro personnel guy badly that can evaluate this roster without a biased eye and pursue upgrades.

He has had some blunders as well as a good moments. I just really believe he botched last years off season. Specially speaking of how historic it was and the amount of capspace we had. Im really not in the Glazers said no theory. After all he was allowed to wave 100 million in Alberts face. And he had the green light to spend 20 million on a punter the year after he drafted one. So even if the purse was to tight for the biggest fish, he was able to bring in some kind of help had he wanted to. But no he stuck to his "plan".
 Not a bad plan in theory. But when you take into account the biggest FA frenzy ever , and all the cash , I think it was common since to deviate from the plan just a bit. Even if you had to over pay a guy like sproles or Free so what. What exactly is an overpaid veteran in this new CBA? Its yet to be seen. In a few years  the rookie wage scale and cap floor will cause veterans pay to go up.
 And even if you dont buy that logic, he still over paid True and Black. Couldve been a real FA.

Interesting...it appears MD still has a slight edge in supporters....can't say I agree with it but that gives us a pretty good picture of where things stand.

It was the best move if they didn't have a new GM and scouting department lined up. It would be a disaster to have the Glazers working from an empty One Buc right now wouldn't it?

1 word - CONSULTANTS.

Bring Polian on as a consultant and MD can stay for now.

We'd probably still be doing an exhaustive search for consultants right now if they let everyone go.  ::)

Has he made mistakes? yes. Have 31 other GMs currently in this league made mistakes? Yes.

We can argue until the cows come home on what he's done right and wrong. He has some of the responsibility of last years mess but the majority falls squarely on the players and the coaches for the steaming pile of manure that we saw.

No GM will ever be perfect, no "plan" will ever be perfect. I wasn't happy with what he did last offseason but I have been pretty happy overall with what he has done so far.

The problem is MD has been really bad through free agency.

His 2009 off-season was worse than 2011.
