Dre Moore Still A “Space Cadet”

May 5th, 2009

Dre Moore was a near-bust of a fourth round pick for the Bucs last year, despite the comments of a certain scribe with an all-too cozy relationship with Bucs general manager Mark Dominik who suggests Moore should have  been a starter in 2008, even though every NFL team passed on signing him off waivers. 

Despite logging a season on the Bucs practice squad last year, Moore was mixing it up with the rookies last week. But if Raheem the Dream can be trusted, Moore is hardly a lock to be wearing Pewter and Red come September, wrote Rick Stroud of the St. Petersburg Times.

“He’s starting to look like a guy I want to say I want to count on him,” coach Raheem Morris said Saturday. “I’m not saying that yet. Hopefully, the next time I talk to (reporters), I’ll be able to say I can count on him.

“Sometimes, he has that little space cadet look. But that’s a little bit about being young and the little stuff that drives coaches crazy and what you’ve got to smack out of them. But I’m fired up for the kid.”

Who knows if Moore is able to make the team, but Joe isn’t holding his breath. And Joe sure as hell isn’t crazy enough — or is that desperate to suck up to the Bucs front office — to hint Moore should be starting this fall.

If he does, great. But Moore has a long way to go.

    I guess you are saying that King Jon and his underlings, including Mark D. missed on yet another draft pick. Is there anything to suggest that the Bucs will be anything other than a 4-12 team next year? Makes some of us long for the days of the Bucs b.G. [before Gruden].
