Did a guest piece for the What the Buc crowd using a bit of video analysis as part of it.  I know there are a lot of Hillis fans on here, so thought tihs might interest you feedback, criticism and what not is appreciated.

You're a better writer than I was at 18.  If sports analysis is something you're interested in pursuing, I'd like to see some more stuff from you, IrishBuc.

   No question he's got Alstott-like abilities, plus he started out as a FB so can also block, which Alstott was not so good at. In addition to backing up Doug, he could be paired with Doug to give us a legit 2nd option running or catching. If his head is right, we just upgraded our offense...

Jackson, Williams, Ogletree, Martin, Hillis and Crabtree. Unstopable

That was an interesting article IrishBuc.   It looks like you put a lot of work into it.  Thanks for posting it.

While I'm not exactly ready to crown him the "new Alstott," I do think there is the potential to have a greater duo than Dunn/alstott.

heard his interview today and he sounds like he's not necessarily "in a good place" - sounds dejected, humbled.....and unsure of his role here.

He can either pout and watch his career come to an end , or play harder than ever with a chip on his shoulder . The choice is his.

@JennaLaineBucs:

At least he's able to admit is faults/mistakes.  Good on him.

I would have prefered McGahee on a 1-year deal, but I don't hate the Hillis addition.  Hopefully he can be an effective backup to Doug once he learns the offense.

    To me he sounded genuinely humbled, recognized he had goofed, and now just wants to fit in somewhere. Our good fortune!

I'm not so worried if Doug goes down anymore.

Not because I think hillis is great or anything, but his running style is semi-comparable to that of Blount (minus the leaping), so theoretically, if martin gets hurt in the first few games, we should be able to expect Legarrette like numbers behind this offensive line. Which is still good enough to have a successful offense, considering the talented surrounding cast.

At least the guy has some experiance and can be used in different aspects of down-to-down play (such as blocker, FB, or maybe even line up at TE from time to time).

Actually not minus the leaping. Hillis jumps over people also.
