I don't think Cadillac is a bad reciever, although he had a few drops Sunday, and he seems to be a solid blocker, it just seems that Pittman is so good in those areas that you have to bring him in on third down. With Pittman probably out for at least a week (he took a heck of hit) hopefully Caddy can take advantage and prove he should be out there more on third downs.

If we lose Pittman, we lose probably the best blocker we've got.

Caddy did squat yesterday.

He couldn't run. He dropped passes.

we will feel the losss of Pitman despite what the naysayers say about him.

He is a big value to this team.

Pittman is a huge asset to this team.  He almost took that opening kick to the house last week.

great blocker and great receiving back. I'd say he's an asset.

Absolutely Unc. In case some haven't noticed, Caddy has hands of stone.

Caddy is obviously never going to be Tiki Barber or Marshall Faulk as a reciever, but he's not Shaun Alexander either . The two guys on this offense who are threats  to make a big play with the ball in their hands are Galloway and Cadillac. If you can't get Cadillac going in the run game, then you have to find a way to get him the ball in space.

Let me ask you this. Would you rather continue to see Pittman recieve those screens on 3rd and 15 plus, or do you think Cadillac may actually be able to pick one up some time? that maybe if you just gave him a try behind some reasonable blocking with a QB that could handle some heat, he could have an even better chance to do it on 1st and 2nd down too...

In space, I would love to see Caddy catching a ball and running to create.  In space, there is zero gravity, and he would be able to do such a thing.

Seriously, it just looks like he has a hard time with catches, even pitches.  He has to see the ball in, usually while turning his body at an angle not conducive to just running immediately afterward.  He was never asked to be a receiver, and in the WCO, suddenly he sees it.  He needs to have that ability, and it isn't easy for him.  One of the reasons why guys like Fabian Washington aren't wideouts despite excellent lateral quicks, and vertical speed.  Caddy just lacks hands.  He lacks the ability to catch and run.

He might be able to learn this skill, but he hasn't as of yet.

Watch the games, he never turns a catch into something good.  He just catches it and gets planted.

He is concentrating too hard on catching the ball.

He's had 2 years to learn and he doesn't appear to be any better now then when we drafted him.

He, as of right now, is definitely not a third down back.

And hasn't Gruden always had a back that could catch the ball? He can't be too happy with Caddy's play as of late. I know i'm not!!!
