Not only did Ozzie take Pierce in the third round, when there were more notable 'needs', but he moved up to get him. His is one in a long line of examples, that somehow is forgotten by some fans every April.

I would not be surprised one bit if Pierce supplants Rice as the starter at some point in 2013, just like Rice became the starter over Mcgahee in his 2nd season in 2009. Pierce is better between the tackles than Rice and has a lot less mileage. Not to take anything away from Rice, because I think he is an elite back, but a move like that could prolong his career and make our running game even more potent. They have already proven with Mcgahee that they don't mind paying their #2 RB starter money. Use Pierce as the workhorse and let Rice do most of his damage on 3rd down.
if caldwell plays his cards right we will have a prolific offense next year and be in the mix for the super bowl and caldwell will get a head coaching job.
we need a rushing attack to take the air out of the ball like jamal lewis used to do. our defense got hurt last year because they had to many reps in games.
