Blount Let Freeman Get ClobberedDecember 24th, 2012
After leading the Bucs in rushing last week against the Saints, LeGarrette Blount didn’t get a carry yesterday. But he did march onto the field in the first half and promptly missed a block on Rams safety Quintin Mikell.
That led to Josh Freeman getting clobbered from his blind side and a fumble. (See photo)
Blount stayed in the game and made a good block on the next play and wasn’t heard from again.
Whiffing on blocks on your quarterback’s blind side can’t happen, but Joe still views Blount as an unused weapon.
It’ll be interesting to see what kind of restricted free agent tender the Bucs slap on Blount when the season’s over. Clearly, the New Schiano Order doesn’t believe the NFL is a two-back league, so Joe can’t see a reason why the organization wouldn’t want Blount back next season. He’s an inexpensive luxury to warm the bench.
