Pittman didn't seem hurt... why so many carries for Jones?

Postby mikey » Sun Nov 16, 2003 8:22 pm

Anyone got the skinny out of Tampa? I watched the game but didn't hear anything about Pittman getting hurt.

Pittman only got 18 YDs rushing while Thomas Jones had 130+ YDs.

What gives? I know Gruden's been unhappy with the Bucs' running game recently. Would seem like Pittman's days as the starter could be numbered?

Could be. A lot of people have been talking about Pittman not producing. TJones will at least get a chance. I'll see what Gruden says first before picking him up.

Jones got so many carries because well, he was on fire. I was watching the game and was amazed at his speed and moves. If you are in a fairly deep league and need some RB help, pick this guy up.

Would you consider a 14 team league deep. I picked up jones and dropped Randle El. Only reason I had him was for return yds.

Yeah, that's probably a good move.

I'm not in a very deep league at all (I'm in a 10-team league), but am thinking of picking him up any way. I really rely on Pittman at my flex spot (as sad as that might seem), and so if Tampa makes any kind of a move, I wanna be prepared.

(man, Gruden is just not a Pittman fan -- first Jamal Anderson and now Jones. Hopefully, whatever they do, they don't turn this into an RBBC).

Keep in mind Gruden raved about this guy in preseason, he is AGAIN behind a mediocre RB in Pittman, and has NEVER had a yr where his avg was even 3.8
He MAY FINALLY find his game (he needs CARRIES to do it though), but I figure Gruden is just resting a beatup Pittman.

I could be wrong.

Drop William Green. Not only is he suspended, he's been terrible when he plays.
