The spin Gruden offered on his draft pick was that maybe the Bucs would take Oklahoma running back Adrian Peterson. He cited how well the Bears, Colts and Saints functioned last season with two quality runners; so why wouldn't it work with Cadillac Williams and Peterson?

It seems like something is being thrown out there on just about every top 5-7 player.  Most is smoke we know, but this will be interesting on draft day.

He's going to find a way to say "yea, (insert top 5 projected pick here) certainly would fit well here and he would add another dimension to our team. Players like him don't come around often..." Gruden is a master of how to have fun with the media and then sit back and watch the reaction. He knows exactly how to play the game of smokescreens.

On another note, is there a former Buc going to be sitting at the draft table again like Jimmie Giles did? That was pretty cool to see that. Thought that was a nice move by the front office.

Well, did you guys expect him to come out and say if so and so is there that we are going to pick this player over that player

In Football, RESPECT is never given freely by your opponent. It must be TAKEN from them...VIOLENTLY

Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

I am in no way advocating the selecting of AP...im just saying...that is a valid point.

Or maybe he's like those gothic kids in high school where he does something just to watch you squirm...
