It seems that when Alsott is being talked about everyone looks at him as this great short yardage back that he was a few years ago. Alstott is not the same back. He has lost something and im not quite sure what but he doesnt have the same bone crushing style he had in years past. I really believe that Even if he does come back Caddy will still get some goaline carries.
Did you miss the week 10 game against Washington? The one where Alstott scored twice on goalline TDs and then punched in the winning 2-point conversion with 4 seconds left on the clock?
PS- How often do you see a team run a 2-point conversion in the NFL when they are down by 1 with 4 seconds left on the clock?
PPS- Alstott scored more TDs than Caddy last season and he only carried the ball around 30 times. I would almost venture to call the guy a PURE goalline thief/short yard guy ala Jerome Bettis, if it wasn't for his receiving stats (which were just as good in '05 as back in his heyday).
