But who's gonna start the 2nd quarter after the Cadillac gets towed back to the garage?
In all seriousness, I feel bad for the guy. If it weren't for bad luck some guys would have none at all.

As long as the freak injuries stay away from him, he's a beast

What a boost a healthy Cadillac would be to Graham and Ward. I've been cautiously optimistic, hearing all the great reports regarding Caddy.

Maybe its not his fault, maybe we can blame karma and ask for his nickname to be changed.
In retrospect maybe they should change his name to Toyota or Honda Williams. Everybody knows Cadillacs have a reputation for breaking down. Next thing you know he's gonna get cut and the hospital bills will bankrupt him and he'll be asking the government for bailout money. :p

I think Yugo Williams fits better.

that should at least add some more milage to him

How about just "Carnell Williams" and save the nick names for those who've earned them. :D
I love his skill set, but he's about as injury prone as a person can get, I hope for the best for him, but I just don't see him making a 16 game season healthy, and until he shows he can do that, Derrick Ward should start.

So how do the Bucs split the carries between their 3 backs this season? Assuming all 3 are healthy obviously.

I'd tend to lean towards where Tronix is going here, if healthy, Williams is a great complimentary back and Ward ought to be the starter here and the primary ball carrier to keep them both healthy.

I like Ward, but I still thing the primary ball carrier could be Graham.
Either way, I think it's a good problem to have.

So 50 minutes into the game here's the RB's stats:
Cadillac Williams: 8 carries 54 yards
Ernest Graham: 5 carries 39 yards
Derrick Ward: 4 carries 3 yards
So Caddy and Graham both looked good. Ward not as much.

Cadillac had a great team.
And is says a lot about him that the coaches feel that he's the #1 back on the roster as long as he's healthy.
He could be one hell of a fantasy sleeper.
