Ernest Graham and Michael Pittman have been playing better than him. He's been dancing around way too much.

Ronnie Brown, Cedric Benson, Cadillac Williams.

All drafted in the top 5. All underachieving.

Sad to hear about the injury though. Seems like there are far more of them this year.

Caddy and Benson seem to be fading, but Ronnie is picking it up.

That entire top ten sucked outside of Alex Smith and maybe Braylon Edwards.

The top ten for that draft class is horrible and the next ten picks are a very good. Its quite odd how that happened.

1 San Francisco 49ers Alex Smith
2 Miami Dolphins Ronnie Brown
3 Cleveland Browns Braylon Edwards
4 Chicago Bears Cedric Benson
5 Tampa Bay Buccaneers Carnell Williams
6 Tennessee Titans Adam "Pacman" Jones
7 Minnesota Vikings (from Oakland) Troy Williamson
8 Arizona Cardinals Antrel Rolle
9 Washington Redskins Carlos Rogers
10 Detroit Lions Mike Williams
11 Dallas Cowboys Demarcus Ware
12 San Diego Chargers (from New York Giants) Shawne Merriman
13 New Orleans Saints (from Houston) Jammal Brown
14 Carolina Panthers Thomas Davis
15 Kansas City Chiefs Derrick Johnson
16 Houston Texans (from New Orleans) Travis Johnson
17 Cincinnati Bengals David Pollack
18 Minnesota Vikings Erasmus James
19 St. Louis Rams Alex Barron
20 Dallas Cowboys (from Buffalo) Marcus Spears

Not to nitpick, but Derrick Johnson hasn't been nearly the LB he was billed to be when he was coming out. Pollack got injured so he hasn't done anything, but that's not his or the Bengals' fault whatsoever. Travis Johnson hasn't been good at all (1 career sack), Barron isn't anything special and Spears hasn't been anything special either. And let's not forget Erasmus James is a part of that Vikings' defense that features "2 elite DTs and absolutely no outside pass rush."

So the top 10 had Smith and Edwards, the next 10 had Ware, Merriman and Brown. It's not that big of a deal.

Ware, Merriman, Brown, Davis, and Derrick Johnson all picked in a row is very impressive.

Hopefully it isn't an ACL tear. There have been varying reports as to the severity of the injury, ranging from knee sprain to full knee blow out.

Is it just me or have there been more injuries within the first four weeks than there has been in a while?

I can understand saying Pacman was a bad pick because of his character, but on the field he doesn't suck he is a very talented young CB was on his way to being a top CB and as a returner he was awesome, its just a shame he is a moron.

in all fairness i dont think that the top 5 picks were put in situations where they could have been successful. all three RB's have never been in a situation to flourish, all have been stuck behind a crap Oline. Alex smith was behind a crap oline with shoddy receivers and a piss awful run game. braylon edwards has had **** throwing to him ever since he came to the NFL, imagine if these skill players were put into a team where their main weakness wasnt crucial to the success of a back QB or WR

The Buccaneer's offensive line has been great this year and Caddy has reaped the rewards already tripling last season's TD total. Unfortunately we lost starter Luke Petitgout for a while so that is a little unfortunate. Caddy's injury was a freak accident and not a result of poor O-Line play. He just seems to get himself in the wrong places at the wrong times.

Not to nitpick, but Derrick Johnson hasn't been nearly the LB he was billed to be when he was coming out.

He was good his first two years but this year he has been great he is all over the field he said in a interview he is not having to think about to much any more he is just playing football like back at TX. He was slowed down by an ankle injury last year and he was never the same but this year he is 100% Donnie Edwards has took him under his wing which has been huge he had no one to learn from his first two years.

Back 2 the drawing board for the bucs...so i guess they need a qb, wr, and rb all over again, and are still old on defense...even though it was an outside shot I didnt think it would of been a bad idea to pick AD and not run caddy to death but oh well

On a side note, remember when everyone was saying that cutting Petitgout was a dome decision by Jerry Reese...

Jerry Reese has done a brilliant job thus far. Aaron Ross is playing very well, Steve Smith looks like he'll be a great player for us for years, even though he's hurt right now, you saw it when he gets on the field. DeOssie was great value in the 4th, Ahmad Bradshaw and Michael Johnson were great 7th round pickups, and Alford has potential.

Also, none of the guys he let go have proven him wrong by any means.

EDIT: Forgot about Feeley. If theres one thing Reese did wrong, he didn't resign Feeley.

Why exactly do you think they are old on D? They have a few veteran players on D (Brooks, Barber, Spires, Carter) but they also have a decent amount of young talent.

I agree, but looking back at that draft he was the best option. I pray he can get back on the field again, but his impact will be questionable if he does.

Can you really call a guy a bust because of an injury? I mean he was playing pretty well this year until he got hurt.

I don't like to call a player whose career is jeopardized or ended through injury a bust, but for a player like Cadillac that may be the case. The fact that he continues to put himself into a position to get injured is a problem. Maybe after a year off recovering and rehabilitating he can get his career back on track, but i'm not holding my breath.

How did he put himself into a position to get injured on that run? He was in the open trying to put a move on a DB. Looked like his cleat slid out on the turf and then he took a hit. Freak thing, but it wasn't like he had 3 guys on him trying to get an extra half yard.

The field looked like crap the whole game.

I think it will be a committee approach with Graham and Pittman, maybe Darby from the PS in the mix. I don't buy the Tiki rumors, but some Buc sites are reporting that the team contacted Corey Dillion already. I'm curious who they could trade for?

I was referring to his combined injuries. The guy just can't keep himself healthy.

That would be crazy if Ronde and Tiki were both in Tampa. Are the Bucs playing the Giants at all this year?

Caddy
10-02-2007, 06:57 AM
Both Cadillac and Petitgout have suffered sever injuries. Caddy's is more severe than Petitgouts with a 9-12 month recovery period. At the moment the earliest he will be healthy is training camp but I doubt the Buc's even consider playing him till the regular season. There is a five month recovery period on Petitgouts injury.

10-02-2007, 07:07 AM
As I was watching the game, I got sick to my stomache when Caddy went down. I'm a Panther fan, but I still hate seeing any player injured that badly. I have some bad knees so when I saw him land on his the way he did, it made me hurt.

Best of luck to Caddy on his recovery as well as petitgout. If its any consolation, Graham and Pittman should fill in nicely for him.
