Before we criticize the Ticat scouting too much, let's see what talent, and not just names, they bring to camp.
1. Waaaaaaaay back in 1961, the Ticats signed Jim Joyce, a "name" running back out of Maryland who was going to make us forget Cookie Gilchrist. Joyce got beaten out by Don Soberdash, a much lesser name, but a better all-round RB; unfortunately he tore up a knee and never got a chance to show anything in a real game.
2. Remember the "no-names" who made the Ticats and went on to stardom: Willie Bethea, the afore-mentioned Cookie Gilchrist, Earl Winfield,m etc., etc.
3. The closest we ever came to a "name" RB was Steve "Woo-woo" Wooster, who made a respectable, if not overly impressive impression before he was busted.
We already have some good RBs, let's see what Craig Smith and Mike McCarthy have for us for training camp.
