Hey, Cadillac is doing better statistically than all three in rushing.  What do all of them have in common?  They played very little if at all during the preseason.  I'm not sure about Gore though.

Anyway, maybe we should stop being too critical of the guy.  Once we made adjustments in the second half, we were unstoppable in the run game.  Cadillac got the first TD.  I think we will get better and better at running the ball as the seasons progresses the way the Offensive Line is gelling.

but he wasn't around for the 2nd or 3rd tds. Guy needs to stay on the field.

Yes he does Hate - and hopefully he gets past the injury bug cuz when he is available with a qb and an oline he can be pretty darn good.

He was around and he wanted to play, but he put the ball on the ground.  There's no excuse for that bruised ribs and all.  Gruden was sending a message to the team that if they can't take care of the ball you're gonna be taken out.

Atleast the injury seems like something he can play with, as long as he can hold onto the ball with the flak on. I don't see Duece McCallister, Stephen Jackson, and Shawn Alexander available for Sunday's game in which each of thier teams play a "must win".

Ain't that something that the three RB's that the Bucs have played are all banged up...I love it.

That's exactly correct. Especially after giving into Clayton's beggings to stay on the field.

8 fumbles in 563 career carries......anymore invalid points to be refuted?

Folks gotta get tired of trying so hard to find negatives.  Just sayin'

I don't like the way the ball is being put on the ground either - but the buccs are getting by it and addressing it.  You really can't ask for more.

Personally I think most people only remember Caddy's fumbles because 7 of the 8 in his career has been turnovers.....make that 4 and this is a non-issue or is relagated to being a product of his injured ribs.

Tim Ryan said during the FOX broadcast that Stephen Jackson is not a fumbler, he has no problem holding onto the football.

Jackson has 803 career carries with 11 career fumbles for an average of 1 fumble per 73.000 attemts.

Caddy has 8 fumbles in 563 attempts for an average of 1 fumble per 70.375 attempts.

But people here consider him to be fumble prone.....I don't get it.

He's been dropping more of them lately.  It is DEFINITELY a concern with him at this point, as these things tend to happen in streaks.
