So pretty much what we suspected…Just how were interested were the Buccaneers in free agent defensive end Greg Hardy? The team was prepared to go all-in from a financial standpoint to match Dallas Cowboys v Carolina Panthers whatever Dallas was offering, but somehow through the recruiting process either Hardy or his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, let it slip that the 2013 Pro Bowler ultimately wanted to play for the Cowboys. Once Tampa Bay got wind of that they backed out as the team was ultimately being leveraged to drive Dallas’ price tag up.
Dominik and former head coach Greg Schiano believed that the Bucs had drafted a franchise-type running back in Martin at the timeThey should have been fired right then. There's no such thing as a franchise running back.
Great point about Koetter! That’s something that hasn’t been talked about enough this off season – is the difference that he will make on this team overall. From building a pro scheme that has been proven successful everywhere he's gone, and as a play caller. If he tailors the offense to the talent we have, the team will instantly be at least 3 wins better just by extending drives, keeping the defense fresh and devising game plans against specific teams.Love the Koetter hire and Bajakian for that matter. We should actually look like a football team on offense this year!Grab OL and a QB and we may have something here!
