    MOBILE, Ala. - The inevitable is about to become official.

    Fullback Mike Alstott, perhaps the most popular Buccaneer and one of the franchise's most accomplished players, is expected to announce his retirement by week's end.......

    All the best to ya Mike Alstott. The A-train was a battler and played a physical style that finally caught up with him. 11 years is a long time to take/give the punishment Alstott gave and the game will miss him.

    Enjoyed his style of play....even if he did get a lot of default trips to the probowl.

    So - did he just sit around on IR this past season, getting paid, sucking $$$ from the TB cap, even though it was well-known and speculated that he was done?

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Does Alstott deserve to be in the Hall of Fame for his special type of play?

    The last play on that video against the Vikings was pretty amazing.
    It seems like painful memories are brought up quite often when watching highlights of other teams against the Vikings.

    It's tough to judge the contributions of a fullback based on stats, which is how most get into the HOF.
    Tough call, depends on how many sniffers are out there that give him some votes.
    There are many other former players that deserve to be in the hall before he gets in.

    Next to the role the OL plays, I believe the FB role is the most missunderstood position.
    Because of that the good ones get very little recognition when it comes to things like the HOF.

    Is he deserving?
    Yes I think so, but there are several better than him that aren't in.
    They need to go in before he does.
