“Kind Of Followed Josh Around Like A Little Kid”November 6th, 2011
LeGarrette Blount’s going to get plenty of high-pressure work on third down today in New Orleans, and No. 27 says a big part of what got him ready to be a full-time back in the Bucs’ too-complex-for-an-outsider system was his lockout regimen.
“I kind of followed Josh [Freeman] around like a little kid,” Blount said of how he spent his time during the asinine lockout. “Every time he went out to throw passes I was there.”
Kudos to Blount for taking his craft seriously. He opened up Friday night on Total Access on WDAE-AM 620.
Blount said he could have played against Chicago but ultimately believes it was wise for him to sit out because he’s now “100 percent.”
As for learning the Bucs system early in his Tampa Bay career, Blount said a big part of challenge was clearing his head of what he had learned in Tennessee Titans camp.
On a lighter note, Blount said that during the bye week he went “all-in” on a massive family soul food feast including his mother’s sweet potato pie and red velvet cake. He also challenged Mike Williams to put up his mother’s “Buffalo soul food” versus Florida soul food.
Blount admitted he was a huge Dolphins fans growing up and claimed bobody on the Bucs will dare to play him on Madden. While playing Madden, Blount said he runs the ball 80 percent of the time, largely handing the ball off to himself and throwing himself screens.
