Seems like he would have been a valuable addition to the "core".    I think his policy of not signing other team's free agents is ridiculous.

Don't worry. We will find someone just as good from somebody's practice squad.

While I don't want to encourage a new thread when a former FA--who 30 other teams didn't sign--has a good game, I would have liked Sproles.

Hubris, arrogance, cheapness or all of the above.

also have to LOL at everyone that wouldn't have taken Sproles because they are so brainwashed by "the plan" that they can't distinguish when a guy "doesn't fit" and when he's got the potential to be a major contributor. Sproles would have been the latter and just because he's not 21 years old, people want to say he would have been no good.

He would have been a much better option than Kraig fking Lumpkin.

I can't wait for the Charlie Brown references for the Great Lumpkin (err Pumpkin). He and Bradford are wastes of roster spaces.

No, but I get so pissed when people moan about what players we don't sign AFTER THE FACT. It's like if you pick an apple and you find out it has a worm in it--"I wish i'd ate a peach instead!"

Let me ask you, you don't suppose people wish they had Koenan or Josh?

It's not you. I just hate this kind of pointless "What if?" talk.

I agree with this and obviously Java's doing that because, well, he's Java.

But there were several on this board who were mentioning Sproles frequently as a possible target.

So are we going to do this about every player Dom didn't sign?

I'll stop if Blount doesn't get hurt and has a big year and/or if someone steps up behind him. The first I can see, but the second is doubtful.

I'm a huge proponent of sticking with The Plan, but getting Sproles would've been massive and really opened up our offense. He was all over the field tonight.

No wonder the Bucs can't sign any free agents.
