Blount Doesn’t Want To Play With RichardsonApril 3rd, 2012
Another wise Bucs fan joins Joe in not wanting the Schiano-Dominik, two-headed monster to draft Trent Richardson later this month.
That Bucs fan would be LeGarrette Blount.
Blount was kind enough to express his opposition to CBSSports.com’s Will Brinson during the unveiling of the Bucs’ new jersey today in New York. “I would definitely not be happy with that pick,” Blount said.
If Blount were carrying his political correctness manual, he would have told Brinson that he wants the Bucs to draft the best players they can get no matter who they are. But Blount kept it refreshingly real — and every coach knows bell cow running backs hate sharing carries.
However, Joe hopes Blount realizes that competition is a great thing, the Bucs desperately need another talented running back, and his new offensive coordinator is a guy from a system that used two and three running backs effectively.
