No Dal, I was serious.  Did Graham play at UF or somewhere else?  I don't know.

I would also like to see what Graham can do when given an oppurtunity other than August.  It might make Pittman expendable so that the Bucs can bring in a younger back to compliment Carnell and allow Graham to be the third down specialist.

I think the Bucs should let Graham run the ball more this season.  He hits holes hard and fast (from what I have seen in preseason lol!).  No dancing, no hesitation, it is all forward momentum. 

Pittman catches the ball fine, and he actually has a nice per carry average, but I think Graham should get some snaps.  It might preserve Caddy for the rest of this bunk season as well.

Nevertheless, I stand by my opinion.  I think Graham deserves a shot at about 5 carries a game.  Hell, I love Alstott, but Graham should get just as many carries per game.

If it saves Caddy from injury, do it. But I don't give any weight to his garbage time carries
at the end of today.

Why not. He's Mr august, yet rarely sees any action in games that count.

Might as well save Caddy from injury (sever ones), and go to a rbbc approach.  What the hell can it hurt?  And we get to see if GRaham is more than "Mr. August (LOL!)", and he might be a valuable asset to this teams offense, given the nature of its absolute crappiness.

Boid, I agree.  It pains me to think we will end up trading this guy to another team and he becomes a starter ala Thomas Jones, Aaron Stecker.

but we didn't trade either Jones or Stecker, and neither truly start, Stecker is third string who plays a lot, and Jones shares the load with Benson. Though I wouldn't mind Dodge Ram Graham getting 3-4 carries a game.

I say why not?  What's the use in keeping the guy around if he's not going to contribute?
