His kick off return of 37 yards really helped set up the winning field goal. He now contributes in so many ways. Also Clayton's reception kept the drive alive. Same  guys each week.

I love Pittman's current role. I did not like him as the feature back. It may not be Pitt's fault on this particular play I'm referring too, but it was very funny to me that Caddy had three straight runs totaling about 25 yards, and then came out for a breather and Pitt gets no gain on the very next play.

Yeah, Pitt is a great team player and is really helping on special teams & in the passing game.  His running still leaves something to be desired, but I'm glad he's here.

Pittman is a horrible rotational back when Carnell needs a breather.  I saw him on three occasions flip over when he hit the line.  Pittman is at best a special teams player/third down back.  The Bucs need to really invest a draft pick in a RB that can take some of the load for Carnell and offer a change of pace.

Man, he really picked up the blitz yesterday on more than one occasion. I like his play of late.

I totally agree with that. The Bucs are naked there.

Yeh i dont think much of him as a back, but he is such a useful player to have, i would be happy if they got another RB to give caddy a breather and let pitt play WR full time, he is a much better receiver than runner.

his kickoffs are very nice and consistant so far too

He asked to play defensive back as well, but the staff wouldn't let him.

I would love to see the bucs pick up more of a bruising change of pace back... such as TJ duckett..

Someone to help wear out that D-line and make those holes wider for Caddy

Yeah, they used to have that here but he's not what he used to be anymore. Hasn't really been "right" for a few years now.

He still can't run the ball for s***, but his pass receiving and KR are very nice.  I wonder if we could convert him to an H back...

Very easy answer: You give Earnest Graham some carries. The guy is just rotting on the bench and just plating special teams. This is after being your best runner in the past 2 or 3 preseasons. I guess that's why I am not an NFL coach.
