What a terrible idea giving him that deal last season. Glad he's gone, but he shouldn't have been a Buccaneer last season to begin with.

Happy and Peppy and Bursting with love.

I was at the Clayton draft in NY....  Man I wanted us to trade down and get Tommie Harris, Vilma or draft Wilfork.....  I had the ESPN camera crew on me right before the selection and when we took Clayton the shock and disappointment on my face must have been priceless...  Too bad they never aired it!

Good riddance MC80.........

They fired 2 coordinators before the season was even over last season. I don't think this regime has ANY problem admitting its mistakes and moving on.

Not really. We needed him to step up. They thought if they showed him that they believed in him, he could return to his rookie form. They gambled and lost. If he had returned to his rookie form with the new regime, they would have looked brilliant. You gotta take gambles. Ward and Clayton didn't pay off. Winslow did. Bryant did for a year, but didn't the second year when they franchised him. This year they gambled by releasing him and going with rookies. So far that gamble looks to have been the right choice.

I think Dom has done pretty good so far. Nobody wins every gamble. What's important is this regime has shown no ego and immediatly admits and corrects it's mistakes. That is huge.

How can you credit Dom if your not going to call out failure? The signing of Clayton wasn't a gamble, it was pure stupidity.

I guarantee we put a WR on the PS, and I'm not sure if any other guy fits the bill as well as Parker.

Your comment is pure stupidity. Of course it was a gamble.

I'm a casino ace, I think I know about gambling.

Michael Clayton never had what it took to rehab his knee, and to get into his rookie shape.. So to say signing him could of worked out in our favor is to be ignorant about the facts surrounding Clayton.

Clayton played decent last yr, week 1.....which shows he has ability. I believe after his rookie season, he lost focus, became a fat cat, and no longer put in the effort.

F'him...and good riddance.
