“We Gotta Get Him Some Blow”

September 27th, 2010

No, Raheem Morris isn’t calling for drug use to jump start the Bucs sluggish running game.

The head coach talked during his news conference today about getting more from Cadillac Williams while working in rookie running back LeGarrette Blount, who clearly seemed like a favorite of the head coach after his debut yesterday.

“It’s not time for “wholesale panic,” Morris said at his news conference, referring to making changes to some starting positions and Cadillac specifically. “We gotta get him some blow,” Morris explained, so he’s not getting 25+ carries a game.

Regarding Blount, who Joe thought delivered some real hope for a stronger running game during his punishing first-half runs Sunday, Morris shared lots of love for Blount’s production in limited time with the organization.

“Blount’s only been here two weeks,” the head coach said. “Now, having a bye week, you can give him some more bases. Some fundamental core beliefs.”

Joe can only imagine how good Blount will be once those core beliefs are instilled.

    “Get him some blow”

    “Give him some more bases”

    A Freudian would say Coach Morris has ‘caine on the braine.

  2. Travis Says:

    translated – “we need to faze Caddy out and give Blount alot more touches”

    I like it, Blount runs HARD and after his first carry the steelers shied away from hitting him and were just diving at his legs.
    Blount is scary and if he matures can be Brandon Jacobs pre contract extension.

  3. Gary Says:

    Yes, Blount will see more carries against CIN. My question is whats up with Huggy?

    Why is it that 2 weeks now we expect him to get carries and then he is inactive on game day with some injury. Is he hurt or not?

  4. eric Says:

    Looks like Blount is the new Huggins.

  5. McBuc Says:

    Joe…I am glad to see you come around to the Blount side. I think he is going to be a beast.

    They have saidf that Huggins has a groin injury, which takes some time to recover from.

  6. Spirit of '76 Says:

    Caddy will remain Mr. Everything. Blount will add the power and short yardage and Huggins if/when healthy will be the change of pace scat back. EG, Mr. Insurance, will get his touches too. We now have a backfield by committee and more talent behind these four. I like it.

  7. Cannon Says:

    The Bucs looked like a different team when Blount ran the ball.

    I say this with regret too… as I currently own a Caddy jersey :O(.

  8. Capt.Tim Says:

    “Blount is the new Huggins!” does that make Lumpkin the new Blount? Huggins the old Graham? I am excited to see what Blount can do. He showed talent against the Steelers!! With a power back, should open things up a little for Caddy! Don’t forget Benn looking good also! Now if Grimm can develop, and our new war paint wearing guard can get on the field, this year will just keep getting more and more exciting ! Meybe Desmond Briscoe shows crazy skills l

  9. McBuc Says:

    I think we will see a change. Blount will slowly take the load. He is big and punishing. Once they are worn down we will have Caddy come in until and unless Huggins is healthy. I hate to say it, but I think Caddy will be the back up for most of the year.

  10. eric Says:

    Something needs to be done. 2.5 yard average is simply not going to work long term.

  11. McBuc Says:

    I can agree with that Eric. I was hoping the Bucs picked up Blount late in the draft, and when he was not drafted I was hoping they picked him up in FA, I was excited when I heard they picked him up after he did not make the line up in Ten. The dude is big and quick, just what we need in the NFC South. As he learns the offense we will see more and more of him, until he takes the starting role. Pound the rock with Blount, then throw in Huggins to rip off some fast long runs.

  12. eric Says:

    Well running back is one position where you can find a guy. Hard to believe Fisher would release a really good one though.

  13. McBuc Says:

    He has a great one, so it is easier to let a good reference, of course I am sure we gave AB a good reference as well. Priest Holmes got away from two teams before KC started him.

  14. eric Says:

    Well Mcbuc, you know the old saying, when it sounds too good to be true, it usually aint.

  15. McBuc Says:

    We have not even seen the kid in an entire game, so I tend to be a bit more optimistic than you.

  16. eric Says:

    And without seeing him, he is Priest Holmes.

  17. McBuc Says:

    Potential my friend. I am just saying you can not write the guy off. If KC thought the way you do, there would not have been the Priest Holmes we know. Why are you so negative about everything…of course I sense you are just trying to bait me today. You are staring to get like Javier, just saying crazy nego crap to generate a responce.

  18. eric Says:


    Not writing him off. But people are using terms like “beast” when the man hasn’t played a full game yet.

    What are the odds of him being Priest Holmes? Pretty dang long sir. Mght as well give him a shot, what do we have to lose?

  19. Travis Says:

    eric, its not that everyone thinks hes the next Jim Brown, but when our running game looks dismal, a guy who runs hard and looked good gives us hope of a good running game for once, since the days of Dunn and Alstott.

  20. eric Says:

    Ok, I am convinced.

    Go Blount!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey, what was the name of that running back who stepped in when Bo Jackson opted for baseball. The dude was leading the league for like three weeks then got hurt.

    Now THOSE were some dark days my friends.

  21. fernando Says:

    I’m sold on Blount, my brother told me this when they got him. Did you see how he dragged Polamalu? If Polamalu don’t hang on he was gone!!!!! This dude is like a truck with a turbo in it. I’ve been a Caddy Fan But now you have to give this kid touches. This guy was 1st round talent until character issues arised. Let’s move on from this ugly game. GO BUCS!!!!!

  22. JK Says:

    Blount got yards after the Steelers quit playing which was about halftime.

  23. admin Says:

    Joe here,

    JK – You’re flat wrong. The large majority of Blount’s yards came on the Bucs’ third drive of the game, which led to the Bucs FG to make it 7-6.

  24. eric Says:

    Blount for MVP!

    Blount for Hall of Fame!

  25. Will the Beast Says:

    Blount object up the Gut run angry run over who ever gets in the way were Buccaneers stab someone it’s a gang fight bring weapons of mas destruction kill the enemy come on this guy is explosive give him the ball and let him crash into things he’s going to hurt somebody knock some lames out we need agressive players who play like they have nothing to lose. You told me I couldn’t do it now look at you your nose is bleeding and your on the ground wondering where I went Fire Dem Cannons Blount Object up the Gut thats it Sissies

  26. FIRE GREG OLSON! Says:

    I love hearing Ian Beckles ask this morning: “Where did Blount go? Why not give him more carries?”

    You’d think a guy who played in the NFL would know it could take a rookie more than two weeks to catch up on the offense especially with limited reps.

    But hey, Ron and Ian aren’t a “Sports Show”…
