    I'm happy, the bucs remind me of the cheifs. A lot of talent just qb problems. Vjax move, Doug Martin, Revis movie, McCoy, David. That roster has play makers, the 2012 draft with all their trades to land 3 stud players. I'm going to do a little more research into their drafts but I'm happy with the hire.

    Is it too late to bring Jeff Ireland back?

    actually quite shocked at this hiring. Hickey must have wanted to be back in the NFL in a bad way to jump at this job. But we'll see how it goes. I'm not a fan of the Greg Schiano hiring a couple years ago, but he did get TB some decent talent in drafts. I'm just glad its over with, and I am happy we got someone with some experience as well. Wonder what happens to Gaine now? Does he stay on knowing he was bypassed for a promotion?

    Meh...

    Schefter also reported that both Nick Cesario and Lake Dawson turned us down today and that's after Ray Farmer turned us down three days ago so I guess Hickey was plan D or E. Which is why I'm not that happy but we'll see.

    Don't forget the 4 guys who would not even take a interview LOL...

    We hired a guy who had been with a team for 18 years and was not even interviewed for his own teams GM position. Think about that.

    I wasn't even going to say that b/c I want to try to be positive today........but that's exactly what I was thinking.

    And 7 candidates turned us down......that we know about.....maybe more......for 1 of only 2 GM job openings in the league......that's messed up.

    We must hope that he is at least better than Ireland because he is going to be here for at least a few years I bet... He could very well be but right now it's a bad hire.

    The way they handled Josh Freeman was a disaster but that might've been more on Schiano and Dominik.

    Btw, anyone know if Hickey was at the Senior Bowl? Maybe not if he wasn't employed by anyone, did TB release him at the end of the season?


    Seems like Bucs have had a good eye for RBs (Blount, Doug Martin, Mike James) which is good since I assume we'll be drafting RB help. But it's just tough to know who really made the calls in TB - Dominik or Hickey.

    No he was still with Tampa but a lot thought they where going to fire him in a month of two.

    Also sounds like Gaine is going to leave pretty soon at some point being he knows he isn't getting promoted any time soon. Good thing Philbin was at the Senior Bowl... oh wait. LOL sorry had to go there :P
