Blount Doesn’t Want To Play With Richardson

April 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.

    He’s just a moron, that simple

  2. Macabee Says:

    I’ll lay you ten to one that if Richardson comes here, Blount punches him on the first day of practice!

  3. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’m really trying to give him the benefit of the doubt, but come on! Does he think he’s Tom Brady? I doubt Dom gives two sh!ts about what he thinks. He shouldn’t.

  4. Oahubuc Says:

    Is he afraid TR won’t show up for meetings?

  5. BonesMahoney Says:

    This makes me want Richardson even more. Why didn’t he just come out and say “I don’t want competition. I don’t want to improve.”

  6. GenocideD Says:

    He only stated what anyone with half a brain was thinking. I definitely wouldn’t be happy with that pick either if Claiborne or Kalil’s available.

  7. bucfanjeff Says:

    Even more reason to draft TRich. So what does he think about, say, another RB not from Oregon?

  8. Meh Says:

    More Blount bashing for no reason here. Of course he doesn’t want Richardson here. He wants to be the feature back. He wanted to be the feature back last year. He’s going to work to be the feature back. That is a plus, not a knock on Blount. That doesn’t mean we shouldn’t take Richardson, but of course Blount wants to be ‘that guy’.

  9. ATLBuc Says:

    I understand that he would feel threatened by using such a high draft pick on another RB but he needs to think before he speaks to the media. Not the best image of himself to be putting out there.

  10. Lion Says:

    @Jarett
    He is a moron because he wants to be the feature back, wow you are retarded. Ask any other number one back in the league and they will tell you the same damn thing you moron. Quit hating just to hate, it gets you nowhere in life.

  11. Have A Nice Day Says:

    lmao at this Blount bashing. You guys are giving him crap for not wanting someone coming in threatening his job security. As if anyone one of you actually want someone to come in and take your job. Pathetic. Truly pathetic.

    I understand that you guys want Richardson, but bashing Blount in this fashion to try and give your want more relevancy is such a grimy move. That stuff is so highschool.

  12. Jrock(mobile) Says:

    Wow Blount, really? I’m definitely not on the Richardson bndwagon, but that’s not the right attitude for a player to have. Its selfish, the TEAM needs more than one capable ballcarrier and the bucs don’t have that.

    Would he be okay with a different RB picked in a later round? Or is he just against the marquee back? Totally selfish manman

  13. js1506 Says:

    Hey Blount WAKE UP… your braw raheem is no longer your head coach.. OUR new head coach wants competition at every position so next time you fumble you are held accountable

  14. Crotch McGee Says:

    Blount keeps it real. Simple economics of a top 5 pick. If Bucs draft TR, Legarrette’s value is diminished or he’s out all together. He wants the rock so he can put up yards and get paid. He knows it doesn’t’ hurt if Bucs win along the way with him as their #1, something that simply won’t happen if Dominique call Richardson on draft day.

  15. Garv Says:

    I like LaGarrett but he should be working at his own job and not the job of the FO’s.
    His opinion on who to draft is as relevant as Talib’s, various 2.2′s and Ian Beckles’.

    Come on man, get to work, learn how to hit holes and block better. The rest will take care of itself.

  16. Jarret Says:

    Lion: Let me clear this up for you. ITS NOT ABOUT HIM WANTING TO BE THE ONLY RB. YOU DONT SAY THIS STUFF TO MEDIA. You have nothing to gain by doing it. Whether you think it or not you shut your mouth and say I want whats best for the team. Ofcoarse every back wants to be the man but the other ones arent dumb enough to say it to a reporter. Damn ur dumb lion

  17. tylund Says:

    i am glad he was honest frankly i would not like it if he said sure that would be cool.

  18. Fatmosh Says:

    I wonder if Freeman wants the Bucs to draft Tannehill at #5.

  19. bucfanjeff Says:

    There is nothing wrong with his comments. He wants to be the main guy. He also knows if they draft a ‘talented’ RB, he gets replaced.
    If he has confidence in his abilities, there is nothing to worry over. After all, he is a veteran in this league.

    Point is, he’s worried – he knows his own limitations and he knows he can’t compete with T Rich.

  20. Smak Says:

    No player at any position wants their team to spend a 1st round pick on their position. Usually that means you are on the way out. I don’t care if they were able to clone Jim Brown and bring him in, if the defense doesn’t get fixed any rb will be sitting on the bench out of the game plan by the middle of the 2nd quarter. Rb is a luxury right now, lb and cb are necessities.

  21. Eric Says:

    Honest but stupid.

    Especially with a new coach.

  22. NJBucsFan Says:

    Can’t wait to we draft anyone other then TR so all the Blount bashing stops. In 2010 and at the beginning of 2011 everyone loved Blount and spoke of the next A Train now he’s being compared to Ward and C. Gardner.

  23. Have A Nice Day Says:

    “Whether you think it or not you shut your mouth and say I want whats best for the team.”

    It appears this guy wants a locker room full of timid dishonest people who don’t care about their jobs. Who wouldn’t want a bunch of guys like that on the team?

  24. Eric Says:

    Coaches want players that leave the personnel decisions up to them.

    “Whoever the bucs draft i will be a great teammate and work my tail off to be the best running back I can be”. “Those decisions are up to Coach Schiano and Mark Dominik”. “I’m just happy to be a buccaneer and looking forward to a great season”.

    Simple.

  25. Mark Says:

    I’m in sales and I also hate when someone beats me. Part of life, get use to it. He would have to go to meetings, stay awake and show up on time like the rest of the world. He’s acting like that catty girl when the prettier, sexier girl is coming through the front door.

  26. Architek Says:

    I am now ready for the Bucs to draft TR just for the drama. I want to see the substance of this guy. Don’t he realize he alone cannot get us to a Superbowl? How selfish does he sound?

    Having attitudes like this is want polluted this team last season.

  27. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Mark Job security and aesthetic insecurities are on two separate levels, bro. Your metaphor is not applicable.

  28. Architek Says:

    I’m sorry this guy is just flat out “ignant”. How in the hell do you come out of your mouth as an undrafted free agent and say some crap like this about someone who is superior to you in talent. He should be glad he is not living in Raheem’s basement.

  29. Apple Roof Cleaning Tampa Says:

    Good for Blount ! No good running back wants to share the ball. With the addition of Nicks to our line, Blount and Madu will run all over the NFL this year.
    Tampa already has 2 good running backs, Richardson is a luxury we can’t afford.
    Besides, Cleveland is most likely going to replace Hillis with him anyway, so get used to it.

  30. Eric Says:

    mental midget

  31. Mark Says:

    Have A Nice Day Says-he doesn’t want to share the spotlight dimwit.

  32. wheresmaldo Says:

    I wouldn’t go as far as to say he’s a “moron,” but the correct response is “Bring on the competition, because I know no matter what, I am and will be this team’s best back.” His response reeks of insecurity, not necessarily immaturity. Even the best of players should know that the best response is to turn apparent slights into motivation. Sorry, but positions are earned. If he doesn’t want him here, it’s only because Blount knows deep down he’s on thin ice following his lukewarm season. And I can assure you that such an attitude won’t endear him any more to the new coaching regime.

  33. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Mark The difference and reason? Money, not some ethereal inconsequential spotlight. The catty chicks have nothing on the line but personal insecurities. Blount is worried about his family and self livelihood….. dimwit lol

  34. BigMacAttack Says:

    Well maybe they’ll draft Claiborne and Blount will no longer be the dumbest player on the team.

    I think T-rich might bust him in the mouth for saying that and Blount will be swinging as well. It should make for an excellent fight. Calling Dana White.

  35. Mark Says:

    @Have A Nice Day Says-most teams in playoffs & Super Bowl utilize 2 backs, not 1

  36. kaput Says:

    Sounds like the “team player” that Joe has been talking up for weeks now.

    What a dumb thing for him to actually say publicly. It just reinforces the perception that he’s selfish and dimwitted.

  37. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Mark Most teams in playoffs & Super Bowl don’t have first round draft pick at RB. Certainly not one at #5.

  38. Mark Says:

    Have A Nice Day Says- if he was worried about the money he wouldn’t have punched people in college and Titans camp, he would have shown up like a professional last year. Believe it or not, it’s more than talent in some cases. How about fixing your shortcomings and being a PRO

  39. bucfat Says:

    Nice language.
    Buc fans thats no way to talk to your team. If you have nothing nice to say. go to NFL.com and comment on Tim Tebeww. haha
    .

  40. Mark Says:

    Have A Nice Day Says-I bet all would want Peterson

  41. kh Says:

    “Blount and Madu will run all over the NFL this year. Tampa already has 2 good running backs, Richardson is a luxury we can’t afford.”

    Umm, what? That’s crazy talk.

    We don’t have a 3rd down back, we don’t have a short-yardage back. We have two undrafted free agents, one that’s a good 2-down back and another that would be on the practice squad of a good team.

  42. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Mark I don’t believe Blount had any major incidents this last season. He was professional as needed. He learned from his early mistakes. That is a part of growing up.

    I don’t know why you are bringing this up now, however. We were talking about the “catty” remark and now you are talking about super bowls and his brief stint 2 years ago with TN. What does that have to do with what he said?

  43. Brain Says:

    Blount wouldn’t be happy with that pick because as an UDFA he knows that drafting a RB in the top 5 is reaching heavily.

  44. Kujolw Says:

    Richardson is good, but with are D giving up so many points i would go for fixing that. Blount had a bad year cause they abandon the run cause we were always playing from behind. Coach Schiano will make him an all around back. Our needs well what I believe are SS to replace Sean Jones/ MLB so you can put Foster in his comfort zone and CB to replace Barber with in the next 2 years cause lets face it he’s not coming back in 2014 lol. When you have 3 to4 WR lining up you want 3 solid CBs having Talib and Wright is good wish we could get more out of Biggers or Lewis. Then we could get Dont’a Hightower in the first not at 5,but trade to about mid round and take him. Kind of hope we get Fletcher for a 1 year contract.

  45. Architek Says:

    This may be the last straw to get him out of here and place more pressure on him to perform of be out!

  46. Lion Says:

    @ Jarret

    Who gives a crap if he says it to a reporter? I don’t, it doesn’t mean anything. But when we do draft a back and if he is vocally expressing his displeasure to the team, that’s when there is a problem.

  47. Bucworld Says:

    Umm. Which running back in the league would love to have another RB to share carries with? Matt Forte was thrilled.

  48. Brett Says:

    @ Have A Nice Day…Guess what? In real life, your job is always in jeopardy. I don’t know what you do for a living, but it sounds like a good gig. Apparently, you aren’t held to accountability through certain metrics such as “balanced scorecards” and other continuum’s. Guess what, I work in an extremely competitive field and there is no margin for error. I could get replaced at the drop of a hat. Sounds to me like you haven’t acquired a college degree or anything beyond that. If you did, you wouldn’t be so careless with your comments.

  49. jvato24 Says:

    What is with the gay little Dracula Collars on the Bucs unis now ?? WTF ?? It really looks dumb

  50. bucbelevr Says:

    Yeah, let’s put the punch-swinging illiterate THUG back on the Tennessee practice squad. DOES he have a f**king clue in HIS MORONIC head?!! He’d be NO WHERE without the Bucs, to this point.

    Put the punk-ass thug back on waivers, and BRING ON CLASS ACT RICHARDSON.

  51. Mark Says:

    @Bucworld Says- he was mad at the contract, not the player, The Bears then signed free agent Michael Bush to a contract with $7 million guaranteed, merely $700,000 less than Forte’s guarantee

  52. Justafan Says:

    Tired of the argument that current winning teams don’t have a first round RB.

    I think the Saints had Bush on the roster when they won the Superbowl.

    That was only a couple of years ago. They spent a pretty high pick on that RB, as I recall. The Steelers drafted a first round RB in 2008 in Mendenhall. It didn’t knock them out of the playoffs.

    Chances are, the Browns will take Richardson and eliminate him from our possible choices, but the fact of the matter is that top-flight shutdown corners are no guarantee for playoff success either.

    Ask the Eagles.

  53. Jordon Says:

    If Blount doesn’t want the competition to be the feature back, he needs to work on becoming a more complete player. I think most analysts would say that Richardson is a much better blocker and receiver out of the backfield than Blount, and he doesn’t put the ball on the ground that much. I think Blount can be a very effective runner, but to be an ELITE player at the tailback position he is going to have to show he can grow in these other areas. I still say take Richardson or Claiborne at #5, whichever one is still available, and if it IS Richrdson, LB should use this as an opportubity to push himself to get better so he can get his big contract next year!

  54. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Justafan Steelers have an amazing defense. They can afford to run run run as their defense is good at getting off the field. The bucs are not at all.

    Saints drafted bush to be a passing threat and returner. He was a horrible bust for them in the regards of a #2 draft pick. Lets not act as if Bush is the reason they went to the superbowl. They had Brees who is one of the best if not the best in the league and a defense that made turnovers and tried to end careers.

  55. Architek Says:

    Winning is all about the attitude and committment to the team. Does this categorize as a winning attitude?

  56. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Architek Actually, winning is about having more points than the other team at the end of the game.

  57. PewterSkull Says:

    TRich looks more and more promising now that Morris Claiborne scored a 4 on his Wonderlic exam. Why do we always get screwed with our early picks?

  58. Sensiblebuc Says:

    Dave Hawthorne to the Saints

  59. NJBucsFan Says:

    And Hawthorne signed with the Taints.

  60. Paul W. Says:

    Ok ok,

    I agree with the fact that we need a 3rd down back, but spending a Top 5 pick? C’mon that is ridiculous people!

    Does anyone reeeeeally actually blame BLOUNT for our teams poor offensive performance?! That’s just STUPID!

    He was probably one of the only POSITIVE take-aways from the season. I don’t understand some of you idiots!

    What is the plan for our defense for those of you Pro-Richardsons?!

  61. Bobby Says:

    Sure…Blount was supposed to say “Yeah, I’d be thrilled with the Bucs spending a #5 on a back to replace me. I’d love that! Thanks for asking!”
    Are you guys stupid or just a lot more dishonest than Blount? What if your co-workers came in and told you that the boss was making a move to replace you and how did you feel about it? You’re gonna say “Whatever is best for the company. I’m just happy I’m here!” Sure you are. Blount is just letting Schiano know “I want the job and I want the carries.” Didn’t you read what Schiano said he’s looking for in a RB? He said he wants a guy who ALWAYS wants the ball and loves the game. I think Blount sent the right message and I would have been disappointed in him if he said anything else.

  62. SteveK Says:

    Blount must’ve took the Wonderlic Test for Mo Claibourne, you got to be an idiot not to want Trent Richardson on the squad.

    @ PAUL W.

    Use the 5th selection on TR, and the rest of the draft on D.

    Last time I checked we had 18 million in salary cap, surely we can get another FA and some UDFA’s

  63. Have A Nice Day Says:

    “….surely we can get another FA and some UDFA’s”

    You are right. And at the best position to use those kind of guys is at RB.

  64. thegregwitul Says:

    Richardson or Claiborne, the Bucs need one of the two, I don’t really care which one it is, so long as RB is addressed in one of the first two rounds (or maybe round three is LaMichael James is available).

    Blount needs to work on his pass protection so he can stay on the field and reduce his fumbling. This isn’t a new perspective, but it needs to happen. If Richardson is drafted, let the two compete and go from there.

    However, if Claiborne is the guy, and he just might be as he fills an immediate need and with everything from the coach talk about pounding the rock to the Wonderlich score of 4, the smokescreens could be in full effect, the team needs, I repeat, NEEDS to have a viable number two behind Blount. No more Lumpkins.

  65. Bobby Says:

    Claiborne in the 1st and Doug Martin in the 2nd.

  66. Miguel Grande Says:

    I wonder what Trueblood would say about drafting Matt Kalil at the #5 pick?

    I wonder what Wally Pipp said when Lou Gehrig took over at 1st base for a spell?

  67. Sensiblebuc Says:

    @Bobby

    No matter how you spin it, it’s a bad move for Blount. He comes off looking like he doesn’t want to compete which is a major no-no in the machismo-heavy NFL locker room.

    That’s why you answer with non-answer/PC answers.

  68. Mark Says:

    Mock Draft analysis-

    1. Trent Richardson, RB – LeGarrette Blount isn’t the sharpest light bulb in the tool shed, as Emmitt might say. He can’t catch the ball, and he doesn’t understand pass protection schemes. There’s a reason the coaching staff doesn’t use him in passing situations. He’s just completely lost, and it doesn’t help that he fumbles the ball at every opportunity.

  69. jvato24 Says:

    We just modify the argument ..

    Trent Richardson can be the red power Ranger

    Mo Claiborne will be the Purple Power ranger

    Then you can arugue about which Power Ranger you all want as it is basically what it sounds like !! lol

  70. Paul W. Says:

    Hell if Kalil is there, which he won’t be, you have to take him over anybody if no one will trade down for him.

    You simply don’t pass up on someone like that.

  71. SteveK Says:

    Bobby,

    Blount is not getting replaced.

    It is stupid to think he is just sitting around bitching about it.

    Nut up or shut up, it is football time.

    He needs to work on his carrying skills so he can still contribute to this team. Also, Blount needs to cut out the lazy pursuit to a hole.

    Trent Richardson’s addition would be incredible. TR is SMART, STRONG, and a CHAMPION!

  72. Fish Says:

    Apparently, you guys have forgotten that Schiano specifically mentioned that he wants a bell-cow back who wants the ball. This, my friends, is Blount publicly stating that he wants the ball.

    If I was Schiano and read this, I don’t think I could hold back a smile from creeping across my face. I think it’s a smart move by Blount – contrary to what most of you believe.

  73. Oahubuc Says:

    Sounds like a good deal as long as Blount agrees he will no longer: let pass rushers blow by him, say stupid stuff, do stupid stuff, hang around with stupid people, play twinkle toes at the line of scrimmage, cough up the ball every five carries.

  74. Fish Says:

    I also don’t understand why this Richardson talk is so hotly debated. Unless they really do intend on spending their 4th overall pick on Tannehill, Richardson won’t even be available to us.

    There is probably a 90% chance that the Browns take Richardson right before us. We’re probably not even going to have a shot at him. This is a dead debate that you are all fighting over.

  75. Bobby Says:

    @Fish….you are talking to a bunch of Richardson nut huggers so they aren’t going to listen to sound reasoning. Of course it was the right response by Blount.

  76. jvato24 Says:

    Fish ,,, I cant believe you were the first person in this post to realize Blount is just being a reflection of what Schiano wants … A football Bogart

  77. RastaMon Says:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d63lYygxb8w

  78. patrickbucs Says:

    Sure he could of handled it more pr like, but you know what I like it. Fight for your spot, you were underused by the Goad awful Olson last year. If we draft TR, it will only make the Bucs that much better and deeper imo.
    We can draft cb there, I can’t see Blackmon but I wanted him.

    I’m not real happy that both Hawthorne and Lofton have signed with the Saints, while we sat still (so far) in by far our weakest position.

  79. Sensiblebuc Says:

    @Fish

    T-Rich/Claiborne is hotly debated because most of the anti-T-Rich/Claiborne/Kuechly faction would “never draft a RB that high” or say “T-Rich is no AP” or “if they’re both there, Claiborne is a no-brainer b/c of need”. All these points are imminently debatable.

    Until recently, the assumption has always been that they’d both be there @5. Now that T-Rich’s stock has risen, the anti-T-Rich/Claiborne/Kuechly guys have amended their argument to include “well, he’s not going to be there anyway”…which is completely hilarious to me because it undercuts the previous arguments.

  80. bucbelevr Says:

    @patrickbucs…

    I’m right there with ya, on the freakin Saints signing both LB’s we could have used here at our WEAKEST POSITION.

    And someone wanna tell me, where THE HELL the Saints are getting this cap space to do this?!?! Since it’s public knowledge they have 1.4 million in room before the Hawthorne signing. And they have to get Brees done?! Even signing bonuses (in cash) count against future years cap when distributed as such. And they will still have dead money when they cut Vilma!

    Seems like a spite thing out of GM Loomis and Benson as owner in year they host Superbowl, with suspensions coming. Its a defiant Dominik too.

  81. Patrick Says:

    To all the idiots who can’t read, Blount didn’t say he was against us getting a RB. He just doesn’t want Richardson here/1st rounder on a RB. I don’t blame him! He knows he’s instantly going to be the favorite.

    The last thing we want to do is make Blount mad and then he requests a trade. Then we’ll still only have 1 good back on the roster even if we draft Richardson!

    Usually when someone has at least one good RB (like Blount) on the roster, they’re not gonna take a RB in the 1st round. So why are we? Yes, we know “competition” is great guys. But if it’s just gonna make a RB disgruntled, one who’s already proven himself as a productive player for us, what’s the point?

    When you invest a high 1st rounder on a guy like T-Rich, he’s GOING to be the feature back and a huge part of the offense for the team he goes too. That also means that you don’t feel very good about the position if you take a RB over all of the other bigger needs we have in the 1st. James or Martin would be the wiser pick in the 2nd round.

  82. SteveK Says:

    @ Have A NICE DaY,

    NO SIR! The last 2 years our 1st and 2nd round picks were all on D.

    Time to put some star power in the backfield, and give Freeman the best offensive weapon in the draft.

    Have a NICE DAY,

    You must not have seen Kraig Lumpkin last year….

  83. SteveK Says:

    @ FISH,

    You say, “90% chance that the Browns take Richardson right before us.”

    Did you call Ms. Cleo?

    Browns are taking Tanehill or trading back.

  84. SteveK Says:

    Patrick,

    C’mon man, Trent Richardson is a true “bell cow”. He would instantly give us the best RB tandem in the NFC South.

    Schiano wants to pound that rock. Pound away, and pick up TR.

  85. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    I’ve been thinking about this a lot, and I think what really bothers me about it is that it shows a selfishness on the part of Blount. If (and that’s still a big “if”) Richardson is the best player available, he would be the one to help us the most, as in help us win games. Football is the ultimate team game, and all that really matters is wins and losses. So to me it says that Blount doesn’t really care about the team winning, he just wants to be the man. Now I know there are hundreds of players in the league that probably have the same feelings, but that doesn’t make it right. If we draft Richardson, Blount will still get plenty of carries, and I just about guarantee you his yards per carry average will increase. He will be fresh, yet the defense will not be. The chances of both Richardson and Blount playing all 16 games is next to nothing (just reality of the NFL), so he will have the opportunity to be the man. Man up and be the best you can be, and don’t worry about the other guy.

    Also, I must have missed the part where he is Walter Payton and he has the right to complain about who we draft and don’t draft. How about this: learn the playbook, learn to block, learn to not fumble, learn to catch, run for consecutive 1000 yard seasons, then complain. In two years, he’s had 1 1000 yard season (barely), so it’s not like he’s Adrian Peterson. 1000 yards for a RB is not a very big deal anymore, especially when he was the only legit RB we had last year (after EG got hurt). He has not earned the right to make statements like this. I would expect major damage control coming out of his camp really soon, which is the right thing to do. It’s just very disappointing that it came to that. Hopefully he can learn from his mistake. I mean, it’s not like he scored a 4 on the wonderlic, so he is capable of learning.

  86. Thomas2.2 Says:

    I bet Blount got a 2 on the wonderlic.

    Not wanting them to draft T Rch is one thing. Saying it publicly pre-draft is another.

    The idiot is trying to persuade the team not to bring in competition. Stupid and it never works.

    Blount needs to be a backup, nothing more.

  87. SteveK Says:

    Richardson’s addition will not only make our Offense complete, but he can also show SOFTY MCCOY where the weightroom is.

    Trent says, “Hey Gerald, quit tweeting and get your a$$ in the weightroom! You gotta be strong to arm tackle in this league”.

  88. SteveK Says:

    The best player should be drafted at # 5.

    The player drafted @ # 5 should be the best MENTALLY, and PHYSICALLY.

  89. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Oh no, the world is about to end, I actually agree with Thomas!

  90. jvato24 Says:

    great … another 22 days of people harping and guaranteeing college prospects like they are Don King and the draftee is Mike Tyson.

    It doesn’t matter what Blount thinks. Nevertheless, I like that he doesn’t want Trent here and he’s honest about it. Look, this can be interpreted many different ways and naturally, you will slant it for or against Blount whichever side of the fence you are on. I think LGB is a feature bank. He’s a cow-bell type, but he has to be willing to improve and learn. Way too much is being made of his absence when Schiano said LGB contacted him and let him know of a conflict. If LGB didn’t give a crap he wouldn’t have been there for Schiano’s intro or called Schiano about a voluntary workout that he will not be able to attend. Besides, couldn’t LGB actually be right. We should be picking MO. I’m not buying the crap about his bad tackling or whatever other nonsense is being spewed. MO’s our pick. LGB has performed. Give the man another 100 carries more than last year with a sick O Line and then let’s judge.

  92. Lion Says:

    I wonder what T-Rich scored on the Wonderlich.

  93. Lion Says:

    Hawthorne to the Taints? Wow, I am seriously wondering how they are managing to sign all these players with no cap room, scratching my head here. They must seriously be expecting a lot of suspension coming or something.

  94. Lion Says:

    The reason Blount didn’t make the first day is because he was doing the photo shoot for the new Nike jerseys. It was prearranged and he notified Schiano, his alibi is solid as a rock.

  95. CC Says:

    I applaud the honesty. Last time I checked we still have the worst defense in Buc history. Draft Claiborn with the 5th pick.

  96. KWBUCSFAN Says:

    How do the Saints have no money then sign every Fing Linebacker on the market? How do we not get one linebacker? I hope this works. I know we cant fix everything in one offseason but ….. i dont know we should just trust

  97. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Thomas Blount got a 16 Wonderlic score. Not that the wonderlic has any relevancy in football, or life in general.

  98. Have A Nice Day Says:

    The Wonderlic is worthless. Hell, Ryan Leaf scored a 30! The QB average is 24. Brett Farve scored a 22. Dan Marino and Terry Bradshaw both scored a 15.
    Don’t even sweat the scores. The wonderlic is only a gauge of how well someone can pass a written test and doesn’t hold any relevancy to anything else in life.

  99. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “Not that the wonderlic has any relevancy in football, or life in general.”

    ——–

    You could argue that it has no relevance in football, but life in general? Really? Do me a favor, go look at some of the questions. If you can’t answer some of these questions correctly (and very quickly), then I don’t even know how you can function in life. I just picture these people as the ones who actually need the seat belt instructions while on an airplane.

  100. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Have a nice day,

    All those scores you brought up are about 5 times higher than Claiborne! You can bring up all the examples you want, but until you show me someone else with a freaking 4, it doesn’t prove much. Again, I totally agree with you that it shouldn’t eliminate him as a candidate to be drafted. That would be dumb. However, it is definitely cause for concern. How can you possibly argue that? When you invest millions of dollars on someone, you have to explore red flags like this. Hell, I would be concerned that he can’t even read (that sounds like a joke or I’m teasing him, but it’s really not). I could get a 4 if the damn test was in Chinese. I’m sure Dominik (and every other GM in the league) will explore more into this. That’s all I am really asking, but please stop pretending as if it is irrelevant.

  101. Have A Nice Day Says:

    @Hawaiian It has no bearing whatsoever. Some people test better than others. The format of the questions do not represent everyday problems in a verbiage that is not typical to the average person. The wonderlic is like the combine: you have to train for it. Just like SATs, MCats, ACTs, PCATs etc. Just because you haven’t trained for something doesn’t make you less intelligent. It just means you didn’t train for that.

    Training for a wonderlic is totally worthless as as it only teaches you how to get a high grade on that specific test.

    You can try and make a correlation, but I could counter every one of them with an example of a common opposite .

  102. Rrsrq Says:

    Really Bucs fans, criticizing Blount for not wanting T Rich, he plays the same position, I believe it was warren sapp and Jamie dukes on the nfl network saying that vets don’t even watch the draft because that person is being drafted to replace them. Then also your characterizing a person as dumb because of a test score, the question is can he play football and diagnose the game, I believe coach Ron Cooper knows him as a person, more important than a test score. Will the real Bucs fans pleas stand up.

  103. Have A Nice Day Says:

    I do not pretend. The ability to take a test has no affect on ones life unless they plan to be professional test takers.

  104. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    So you think a person in society should have to train to know what is the 9th month of the year? I guess I have higher standards than you do.

  105. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Some people take longer to work out problems. That isn’t a mark on their intelligence. That is a mark on the speed in which they can solve problems.

    50 questions in 12 minutes for someone completely unprepared for the test is ridiculous. I imagine the guy was overwhelmed and his brain shut down staring at the pages. It happened to me before. I scored a 9 and retook the test a week later and scored a 27. I imagine if I studied for a month or two for it I would be in the upper 30s/low 40s.
    But that was the thing. I was completely unprepared and panicked and dropped the bomb. Any other situation I can handle myself but taking tests is something I struggle to stay calm through and have since I was a child. A/B student throughout my schooling but always struggled with tests.

  106. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Read my last post. Your standards are meaningless to me. What you think is higher standard is nothing more than your opinion and has no more value than mine.

    Why don’t you come down from that high horse before you fall and hurt yourself.

  107. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    If that’s what happened to him, then fine. But what if it’s not what happened? What if he just isn’t very smart? You don’t think they should find out what’s going on? You really believe they should just ignore it? I find that perplexing, and if so, I’m really glad you don’t run my business. As a business owner, all angles need to be explored, and all red flags need to be researched. If you don’t, then you are the Oakland Raiders.

  108. Eric Says:

    I doubt the test means much as far as football, but its damn sad IMO.

    Obviously nobody gave a damn about the kid because of his athletic ability. Attend a major university and get a four?

    Disgrace.

    Furthermore if a guy has a legit learning disability why embarrass him and administer the test at all?

  109. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    So it’s a high horse to expect a million dollar athlete, one who has completed 3 years at a major university, to know the 9th month of the year? Am I asking him to ace it? Hell, I’d be fine if he got a damn 10, but a 4? I could give a sh!t less if the guy is a Rhodes scholar or a barely passing student, but a 4!!!! Are you really having this argument? And here’s a novel concept: if you know you are about to be drafted, and you know there is going to be a wonderlic test (and you can go online and get sample questions), why not prepare (or train) for it? Shouldn’t you show some dedication? Take a half an hour out of your life to learn about this new invention called google. When you go into a job interview, don’t you try to get your mind right before hand? But nah, let’s just not worry about it, and let’s invest millions of dollars in him without exploring why he scored a 4 on a test!!!

  110. Have A Nice Day Says:

    I highly doubt Clayborn made it through high school and two years of college as completely inept as you want him to be.

  111. GenocideD Says:

    75% of the posts in this thread are absolutely ridiculous. What, Raheem and his staff are gone, Ruud’s gone, Faine’s gone so let’s turn the rightful fire on one of the only two or three proven positive factors on our team???! I wouldn’t doubt if one of the reasons Schiano wanted to come to TB was b/c of Blount and his upside potential. Big, bruising, refuse to give up on a down, back. A potential “bellcow” to feed and feed and feed the rock to.
    Hawaiian, his 1,000 yard “season” wasn’t even a full season. His time on our team has been driven by inept offensive coordination behind a center that couldn’t run block in the first quarter (before we were behind by 3 touchdowns in the 2nd quarter), an average right tackle that we need to replace ASAP, no legitimate no.1 WR, no opportunity to catch balls(even after doing a pretty damned good job at catching his share of limited opportunities), AND after not being FED the ball the way 31 other teams WOULD’VE used him.
    He DOES have some weaknesses. Foremost the fumbling issue. He DOES need to learn to pass block. We should all be very excited that Ernest Byner is here. We should be excited as hell that Schiano wants to pound the rock and feed our RB the way we were all praying Greg Olsen would’ve done last year. THIS year we have Carl Nicks, we have Vincent Jackson, we have Ernest Byner, we have Schiano, we’ll have a speedster back added in the draft. EVERYTHING we’ve all been crying about.
    I digress. Richardson appears to be a tremendous talent and if we draft him I’m sure he’ll be incredible for us. I think it’s the wrong choice b/c of what Blount did with crappy coaching and an underperforming O-line w/out a deep threat and NO OFFSEASON.
    Offseason+Nicks+Jackson+Faine gone+Byner=Blount Heaven
    After we draft Mr.Wonderlic and not let the score be driven up on us from the getgo we’ll see Blount excel and then all of you Blount-b!tchers will turn your complaining where it should be…our weak LBs.

  113. Have A Nice Day Says:

    You assume you have higher standards than someone else aka high horse. Pretty simple.

    Now if you want to argue whether he should have trained more for it, I agree. This is a huge mistake on his part that he will learn from.

    ANd I never wrote anything about not asking him what happened so don’t argue with me about things I never wrote. I bet he retakes it anyways.

  114. Have A Nice Day Says:

    When did I ever say “this should never be looked into! No one should ever ask him anything about it ever!”

  115. Eric Says:

    dont we have his DB coach on our staff? He should know if the guy is that stupid.

    He couldn’t be.

    I dont think a guy could play DB at LSU and actually be that stupid. Got to be more to it, were talking about a score any average ten year old could blow away.

    Got to be a minimim SAT to get into LSU right?

  116. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @Genocide,

    I know it looks as if I’m taking shots at Blount, so I get what you are saying. I can’t emphasize enough that I really like him, and I would be extremely upset if we were stupid enough to get rid of him. My point is that he has yet to earn the right to have any input whatsoever in who we draft. If he wants to go public and “keep it real”, then he also has to face the backlash that awaits as a result. That’s part of it. All of those factors you stated as to his last 2 years I believe are absolutely correct, but you also correctly stated that he is not a complete back. Therefore, he doesn’t get to draft players, and we shouldn’t care if his feelings get hurt. If he plays great, he will be on the field regardless of who the other RB is. That’s an old competitive athletic concept: play great so the coaches can’t take you off the field.

  117. Miguel Grande Says:

    Nice rant, GenocideD.

  118. Lion Says:

    I’m actually surprised that he of all people score so low, if you listen to him in interviews. He is not one of those players who sounds like they came straight out of the hood to the football field. When you hear Claiborne talk about football you can clearly tell he has a high football IQ. Wonderlich scores and football play have next to no correlation whatsoever. Maybe he thought the test was pointless and just xmas tree’d that crap anyway, who knows!

  119. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    “The Wonderlic is worthless.”

    ——-

    Right there, that’s when you said it shouldn’t be looked into. When something is worthless, it means it is without any value. At that point, it is implied that it not worthy of consideration. Therefore, by process of applying common sense, you ARE saying it shouldn’t be looked into.

  120. Have A Nice Day Says:

    Nice way to insert your preconceptions into someone else’s writings. I write four words and you write a novel trying to explain how I those four words meant what you need them to mean.

    This is ridiculous. I’d love to continue, but a useful conversation is impossible when the other party carries on in the manner.

  121. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    In other words, you realize you are wrong, yet refuse to admit it. You are officially taking your ball and leaving the playground. (FYI, a novel generally consists of more than 4 sentences. Then again, if you go to LSU, perhaps it is a novel).

  124. gotbbucs Says:

    The one offensive player that has consistently produced when given the ball the last two years and some of you fools want to get rid of him? Get the hell out of here.
    How dare Blount want the majority of the carries. All he did is rush for a 5 yard average behind a patchwork O-Line as a rookie with no offseason. Blount is a proven NFL Running Back, and we’re just supposed to move on from that for no good reason.

    IT IS FREAKING STUPID TO WASTE A TOP 10 PICK ON A RUNNING BACK! I don’t care how you want to cut it, it is a very poor decision. It is obvious that Dominik understands positional value, so I expect him to make the right choice. According to most supposed draft experts Claiborne and Richardson grade out very close to each other, so there’s the answer. Besides that, we have a 1000 yard rusher on the roster and one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Oh, and we also have a new Head Coach that wants to run mostly press coverage on the outside. Ah, and don’t forget that our starting CB is facing prison time. Hmmm, what to do?

  125. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @gotbucs,

    I may be mistaken, but I don’t see too many people wanting to get rid of Blount. I know I certainly don’t. However, he made a very stupid comment today. You know it, I know it, and soon enough he will probably know it. Crazy thing is, he would benefit greatly from sharing a backfield with Richardson (as Richardson would from sharing a backfield with Blount).

    To say drafting a RB top 10 is stupid is a bit of an exaggeration. It has worked many times before, most recently Adrian Peterson. It is almost universally accepted that TR is the best back since AP, so I don’t think it is that stupid at all. Perhaps we need defense more and Claiborne would be a better pick, but perhaps not. If he runs for 1300 yards and scores 10 TD’s this year and we make the playoffs, was it a stupid pick then? Remember the spark Cadillac gave us (also a #5 pick)? TR is twice the RB Caddy was pre-injuries. As for who grades out higher, that depends on Dominik. It only matters who he grades out higher, not everyone else. We shall see. I have a feeling TR is getting picked by Cleveland, so it probably won’t matter.

  126. gotbbucs Says:

    “If he runs for 1300 yards and scores 10 TD’s this year and we make the playoffs, was it a stupid pick then?”

    Yes, because we can get that same production out of Blount at the price of nothing.

  127. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @gotbucs,

    I sure hope you are right about that. I guess my opinion differs from yours because I just don’t feel he’s a complete enough back to have that type of production (mainly because he can’t stay on the field on 3rd downs, or obvious passing downs). I sincerely hope I end up being the idiot on this.

  128. Cmurda Says:

    @gotbbucs. Exactly. Look how pathetic our secondary was. MO can’t take a test for crap and that is if these reports are true, but he can lock down a receiver. Thats whats up. LGB is a freaking stud. See GB game and remember to close your jaw.

  129. Kyle Says:

    Mark, walterfootball is a terrible sight and that man doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground let alone anything about rating players, please stop using his idiotic ramblings to help prove a point because it makes you look as smart as his “lost in 1994″ website

  130. J 2.0 Says:

    Listen, Morris Claiborne is obviously an idiot. He coasted through all levels of school and decided to not retain any knowledge. Regardless of how great of a football player everyone but myself thinks he is and is going to be, he is stupid. Stupid people make bad decisions. Stupid people get in trouble. Stupid people willingly cheat on tests and cut corners to get through school. Stupid people are immature and think that school is only about playing sports and not learning. Stupid people get caught in bad situations.

    Some people might say wonderlic scores aren’t important or relevant. To that I say. time and time again these score continously get brought up with a lot of media coverage. So if you are smart, why tank the test knowing the likely results?

    Some people may say that he suffers from text anxiety. To that I say, do you want a player that gets anxious in high pressure situations being the new leader of your NFL defense?

    Some people may say that Morris Claiborne never intended to learn at college and was playing the system to get to the NFL. To that I have several questions. Do you trust a guy who will knowingly cut corners, at the expense of his own education, to get ahead in life? Do you think that a man has an adequate level of maturity that will risk serious injury with absolutely no back up plan, by playing football and not committing to bettering himself academically? Do you think a normal studetn, with no athletic ability, that cheats their way through school to obtain a degree is a good person?

    What would you do if you child was caught cheating their way throught school?

    This is a big deal. Claiborne has major character flaws. I thought all the Talib basshing, Winslow hating, Bucs fans were all about “high character.”

    We can’t add this arrogance to our team. To flaunt the system for so long and think that you are above the rules. No thanks. We don’t need anymore idiots to our team!

    My draft wishlist, if available, is as follows:

    1. Kalil
    2. Richardson
    3. Blackmon (Come on guys Jackson, Blackmon, and Williams would be sick)
    4. trade down and get Keuchly

    Claiborne is a risk, this score is a big deal. Please stop defending this guy.

    @bucbelevr Says: thank you for the kudos bro..my answer to your question below.

    I’m pretty much positive once you offer the franchise tag it’s on the books if Brees signed or not. They have restructured some contracts for sure, looks like Vilma and his $5 million plus cap figure is probably gone soon.
    Guys like Malcolm Jenkins might have received a “bonus” to free up some cap room for Hawthorne that hasn’t been posted yet.

    @ Have a nice Day

    Not sure how the wonderlic doesn’t matter at all? Why does the 40 in street clothes, the bench press, etc.? It’s to see where a person is physically and mentally not just for stats but to see if these young men prepared properly for their biggest multi interview of their lives. They have the game tape on these guys, they want to see how they prepare. Why do 4.0 IVY league grads have to interview with anyone? How many NFL prospects have been caught with DUI’s or on the ganga around this time? If they can’t handle this how will they when they are guaranteed millions of dollars? Show up do well and let your game tape speak for yourself and you will be fine.

    His respected agent Bus Cook has to have his clients do some type of preperation as do all good agents. That’s his most important job is to prepare his clients for the combine, pro day, wonderlic especially with the rookie salary cap. Agents don’t really negotiate rookie contracts anymore, it’s all networking your contacts with these teams to solidify the best possible draft outcome for your client. Hell if I was a top 10-15 pick I would seriously think about hiring a lawyer with professional sports contract negotian experience and pay him by the hour, much cheaper.

    My 3 cents anyway

  132. Cmurda Says:

    The Wonderlic is bull crap. What does it measure? Your quick twitch brain muscle? All I know is I have heard both Trent and MO give interviews and I could only understand one of them and it wasn’t Trent.

  133. 941-Bucs Says:

    If you are a first round top 5 pick you ARE going to play, plain and simple. Richardson would be given every opportunity to have the starting job.

    Blount wants to prove his worth. He did the best he could by him self last year and actually improved in the area’s he lacked. Remember with out OTA’s for the last 2 years.

    I understand about the fumble issue. But you have to be realistic. Most of those fumbles come from fighting for that extra yard or breaking a tackle. It was the same problem A.P. had. Not that he didn’t know how to protect the ball. But when he fights so hard to stay on his feet and keep moving at times “body position” allows the ball to be a tad more vulnerable. Also you have to give credit to the defensive players who train hard to create fumbles.

    Just saying, The Blount bashing is sad. The Buc fans never seem to be satisfied. LGB is a very good talent and is dirt cheap still. He deserves and has earned a real chance to be coached and utilized before he is kicked to the curb.

    And just a side note. Blount is welcome to the idea of other RB’s. Like i said earlier it’s different when it is the first pick “top 5 to boot”. He would be everything but cut if we drafted Richardson.

    So “Have a Nice Day” is a woman on a predominantly male blog, arguing with men and making $600K/yr. I am duly impressed. Are you cute? Do you have big knockers? Nice derriere? or are you a Sea-Hag?

    And I have to ask, how in the heck do you train for a test? I think that is why our schools are failing because they train for the F-CAT. Train for a written test of knowledge. Maybe train means study. Or maybe train means to get the answers, memorize them and still flunk. Intelligence is something not everyone is born with. Man is not equal, and as much as some people want all men to be equal, they never will be. They may have equal rights and protections, but all men are not all equal. Figure it out. We will be having a test on this tomorrow, so train for it.

  138. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Again Captain Tim, tell me the game you saw where T-Rich was caught from behind. I don’t care if you do a youtube search, but show some evidence. Show me just one time. That’s not too much to ask is it? It’s so ridiculous, and unless you are trying to be funny, it’s a flat out lie that you have ever seen him caught from behind.

  139. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Also, wanna bet money TR is gone well before the end of the first round. Unless in your delusional world, the end of the first round is by pick #5.

  140. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    @BigMac,

    I’d be real careful with that one. I know she said she has a husband, but don’t recall her saying she’s a female. Maybe it’s different in Florida, but I don’t know too many women that call other men “bro”. If she is indeed a woman, I have to agree that I am also very impressed. The only arguments about the Bucs I can get into with my wife is when she tells me to stop talking about them all the time (which happens on a nearly every day basis).

  141. Mark Says:

    @Kyle Says: He hit this one right on the head. That is a relevant statement. What part do you think is incorrect?

  142. Mr Lucky Says:

    I think its refreshing to read a player saying what he thinks instead of reading about all the PC, “well I welcome the competition….if its good for the team then I’m all for it…”

    Let’s be real if the Bucs took a RB with their #5 pick do you REALLY think that the RB wouldn’t get as much, if not more, touches than Blount? Teams don’t their high paid draft picks sitting on the bench.

    Blount is just being blunt about this and I think the world would be a better place if more people did that instead of being PC.

  143. Paul Says:

    He said that he would like LaMichael James coming here though, why not richardson lol.

  144. Paul Says:

    I think he means for the 5th pick.

  145. HFXBUC Says:

    I love that attitude vs. the usual BS we hear from players… Lets give him a pass on last year… if he doesn’t perform this year we can grab a back next year. RB is an ideal position to target in the middle of the first round because they don’t go early, so lets assume we pick 20th next year, and if Blount fails we are in a great spot to get the best RB in next years draft to go with the speed back we grab in Rnd 3 this year and the DB and LB we grab in the first 2 rounds this year.

  146. rdbucfan Says:

    I don’t like the comment, it’s not a team first response. It’s a me first response. He should have refused to answer or went with the company response that if it helps us win or makes us a better team I’m all for it.

    Those that state Blount is a feautre back are wrong. This guy is 250 pounds and tiptoes to the line of scrimage. You can’t be a feature back and wait for a hole to open on short yardage situations. Those that say we don’t need Blount to get the short yardage plays, that Freeman can handle that. Do you really want your franchise QB taking those kind of hits? I don’t.

    Blount is scared of contact unless it’s a defensive back. Even then he would rather try and jump over them than run over or through them. A 250 pound running back scared of contact is not a #1 running back.

    If Blount wanted to be the guy, he would have done anything and everything to be on the field all of the time. You don’t need coaches to learn the playbook. Do you think Freeman, Faine or even Zuttah would have said no to LGB if he asked them for help learning the protections. I seriously doubt it. This is on him and nobody else.

  150. Bobby Says:

    @SteveK…we’re not talking about ‘that’ kind of football. We’re talking american football. You may be a soccer player but apparently you know nothing about what a ‘compliment’ back is. Trent Richardson would be a luxury pick and it’s one we don’t need. Doug Martin in round 2 along with Blount behind our O-line would be better than just about any other teams O-line and Richardson. He’s a great RB but we need Claiborne far more than we need Richardson.

    rdbucfan. Your comment about short yardage is simply one of the small list of things he’ll learn with an awesome line, better coaching decisions and a proven NFL RB as his coach. Of course he tiptoed before hitting holes that weren’t there. He had Faine trying to run block. pffft. He’ll work on that with Byner and hit the road-grated caverns opened by Penn/Nicks/Zuttah/DJ.
    and… “he would’ve done anything to stay on the file at all times”??? “Mr.Olsen, I think your Benn’d around is geigh” Ridiculous scheming, piss-poor run blocking, not feeding him like they should’ve, and playing from behind immediately in every game, and a lack of an offseason all led to him not meeting his true potential.

    @Bobby,

    Excuse me? I am assuming you are mistaking me for someone else. Where did I ever say anything about diminishing what he did on the field? All I said was it needs to be looked into. Get you panties out of your arse and don’t attack me for just saying that. Smart money says he will be a great pro, but what is wrong with our GM doing some research and finding out the story of why his score was so low? Millions of dollars is to be invested on him, it would be moronic not to. But nah, let’s just ignore the lowest score of all time and throw money at him without doing research!!!!

    The stupidity of some people never ceases to amaze me. And for the record, I am talking about you Bobby. Learn to f-ing read before you start calling someone else an idiot.
