Buccaneers | Alstott Optimistic

The Tampa Tribune reports that one year has made quite a difference in RB Mike Alstott's life. This time last year he was recovering from a painful hip injury and his 1998 season was in jeopardy. This year he's ready to have a full productive season. "I'm lean, I'm fast, I feel good, I feel strong," said Alstott, who tips the scales at a healthy 262 pounds. "And I'm not overweight, because I run just as fast as before. It's unbelievable what you can do when you have a whole year to consistently concentrate on it, instead of doing it in spurts." He grew tired of questions comparing his injury to former NFL player Bo Jackson's and says that all that is a thing of the past. He is also very confident on the Bucs chances this season as a team. "This year is unbelievable. If you look at our mini-camp compared to the last three years, there's no question about it,'' Alstott said. "We're getting better. We're going to be a championship organization."
