But I wish Alstott would have retired last year.I am so sick of fans calling for him to get the ball. And they are not calling for him to get the ball on 3rd and 1. Not on 2nd and inches. They are calling for him on 2nd and long or 3rd and 6 or other ridiculous downs.And fans have this weird conspiracy theory that Gruden has told all his QBs to never give the ball to Alstott because he doesn't like him. That's just stupid. That's worse than the 9/11 conspiracies.The reason he isn't getting the ball is because he just isn't as good as he used to be. He's not going to ram through and pick up 4+ yards a carry like he used to do in the late 1990s. He's suffered through various neck and back injuries and he's hit the end of his career.The guy is one of the greatest Bucs in franchise history. And I like the guy myself. But this game puts more wear and tear on the body than any other sport, especially RBs and FBs who take a pounding every week. And the reality is that Alstott is worn out. He'll make a good play here and there like all vets do, but he isn't going to be consistant enough that you can include him as a major part of a gameplan.Because he is so popular, if Gruden were to deactivate him, the fans that continue to live in the past (which seems to be about 3/4ths of the fan base) will declare a mutiny. That's why I am hoping he hangs it up after this year. Because right now he is simply taking up a roster spot for PR purposes.
after he retires I better not see him with dancing with the starsÂ Â
Agree with most of your post Cyber, but I still think the guy can pick up a first down on 3rd and 1.
looking at his carries from this year, I'd say he already has retired.
