...looking forward to Graham and Caddy and Askew and Bennett next year. Can we keep all four?

I think Caddy can do well with this O Line...

Agreed Joe...best of luck to Caddy and I hope he comes back faster and stronger than ever...

 (Coach, this is a bit off the subject of this week, but what’s the update on Carnell Williams?)

"He’s back. He’s back and he’s obviously missing football tremendously. It’s great to have him back. He’s a super guy. He has a long way to go in his rehab. But he checks in early and he checks out late and it’s a grueling process. But it’s underway and we’re optimistic about it. (Assistant strength and conditioning coach) Kurt Shultz and (head strength and conditioning coach) Mike Morris and (head athletic trainer) Todd Toriscelli and (team physician) Dr. Joseph Diaco are helping him back. He has a long road ahead of him, but he’s in great spirits and he’s off to a good start. "


( Can he walk without crutches or a cane or anything like that?)

"He’s walking around a little bit, but he still has a long way to go. This was a very serious knee injury and he had a great performance, I guess, with the operation. Mr. (Dr. James) Andrews did a great job as he always does. Now it’s a matter of him (Williams) applying himself and committing himself, which you know he will, to a daily grind. And it’s not easy. It’s not easy. But we have the right people to help him and it’s going to be a collaborative effort. But it will get done. "


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.

Thanks for the update.  Positive wishes for Cadillac's full recovery from this serious injury.

good luck man. Please dont make me retire your customised "cadillac"jersey i bought your rookie year. I still have the faith even though some "fans" gave up on you.

good to hear the guy is progressing in his rehab, that's such a tough injury to come back completely from and be able to start and stop like he used to.

I really think he is going to come back and him and Earnest Graham are going to make a great 1-2 punch. I really believe if Caddy was healthy right now he would be well over the 1000 yard mark right now. He's a special player, I just hope he can come back and prove that.

I pictured us carrying Graham, Caddy, Bennett, Pittman, and Askew next year. Askew as the full-time FB and Pittman of course can play there if needed.

Very much looking forward to seeing Cadillac after a (hopefully) full recovery.  Put it this way, a healthy Cadillac certainly makes our team better.  I will admit that he seemed to underperform the past few years, but I would love to see him run behind the O-Line the way they are playing right now.  Yes, 100% positive that EG is a better fit as he has good hands out of the backfield and is a bruising type back (as well as durable, knock on wood), but Cadillac will still have a place in this offense when healthy.  Here is to a speedy recovery.

Yeah, it was pretty fun watching him spell Pittman all the way to winning ROY.

Good luck to Carnell in his rehabilitation, I'd still love to see him flourish in this offense.
