How Many Carries For Caddy?

November 7th, 2010

Joe’s quite certain the Bucs are going to try and get Cadillac Williams going today — again. 

The offensive line loves the guy. The coaches love the guy. And there’s still a lot of that Caddy’s-on-the-verge-of-breaking-out around One Buc Palace.  You hear it nearly every time an offensive lineman decides to chat.

Joe expects Cadillac again to be the guy on the Bucs’ opening series or two. And if he does well, who knows?

Tom Balog, beat writer for the Sarasota Herald Tribune penned a column today stating he’s quite certain that LeGarrette Blount will be the main man and Cadillac is a starter in name only.

Blount will be the one getting the call for the hard yards, with Williams getting a sprinkling of carries now and again.  There’s no way that offensive coordinator Greg Olson is not giving most of the carries to Blount. … … 

Somebody else might lose the game today for the Buccaneers. But Olson is going make sure it’s not him, by feeding carries to his best back, which is Blount.

Joe’s all in favor of giving the rock to Blount. He’s changed the offense. Let the kid loose.

But Joe’s not going to be one bit surprised if Cadillac gets half the carries and a majority of the work on third down.

    i can see absolutely no reason to give half the carries to an inferior player. caddy is now a 3rd down back and at this point of his career he should embrace that. he can still help the team alot in that capacity.

    I can see it. If the Falcons are bringing extra guys into the box, they’ll either run Blount or pass, but if when Caddy comes in that Safety drops out of the box (expecting pass) I can see them running Caddy on Draws and other plays and having success doing it. That’s not saying Caddy will be 100yd rusher today, just that he may be successful if the D drops back in coverage when he’s in the game. They weren’t doing that early in the year.

    Blount will still get the majority of the carries, but I see Caddy being successful running today as teams expect pass when he’s in there now.

    Caddy will be in on 3rd down for blitz pick ups and I do hope they blitz Freeman, because he has been beating the blitz lately. 3rd down conversion is the key (and first downs period), not how many yards everybody is getting.

    Blount’s play is opening the passing game, so this should be fun to watch. I’m hoping for an early turnover that results in a score to get up early.

    Love Caddy- but carries should be Bliunt . If not, then Lumpkin

    I can’t wait to see Blount burst through the line into Atlanta’s backfield today. Tampa outweighs them by almost 30 lbs a man, line for line.
