The Vikings will not get serious about a trade until almost trade deadline. They know the Bucs have a need and are holding out for the best deal.

I like Moore DTG, he fits and lots of upside. He's the kind of back that would thrive in JG's offense. JMO.

I've said before that he doesn't wow me - strikes me as a young Micheal Pittman. Mike's got some mileage on him but he definitely shown value - but as many have said - he's not a feature back either.

I also think a feature RB will be a key focus in the off-season.

I see no evidence that Turner is adept at catching the ball out of the backfield. He didn't do it in college much, and he hasn't done it in the pros. In Gruden's offense, that would concern me greatly.

Jones will be a free agent at the end off the season, not sure if Dallas even wants him back with Barber there

The Bucs might need 2 runningbacks next off-season as Pittman will be a free agent and Williams future is unclear, so the Bucs will be looking for two RB rather then just one.

Jones never made it as a feature back in Dallas...don't know much about him. Can he catch - he seems to be injury prone and he fell out of favor with the Tuna - does he fumble?

Unless someone else steps up big, Pittman isn't going anywhere.  He's worth more to us than anyone else out there, and he's not likely to leave unless we just don't ask him to stay...

Michael Turner is not a feature back.

I disagree.

Turner has a better shot as a feature back than Mewelde Moore.




I disagree.


Turner has a habit of putting the ball on the ground and he just does not seem overly explosive to me.

I disagree

Interesting on LaBrandon Toefield - wasn't he mentioned in the preseason as an object of Allen/Gruden's desire? I believe they inquired about a trade yet nothing came of it - anyone know why?

Neither can Caddy :o...

He has hands made of granite.  The passes he drops are usually very easily caught, so I am quite suprised he has not shown any improvement.
