The Great Blount Sleeve Mystery

December 13th, 2010

Typically, Joe’s only interested in clothing when it has to do with how much of it women are not wearing.

Nobody’s going to¬†label Joe a fashionista anytime soon.

But Joe was a bit obsessed with LeGarrette Blount wearing a half-sleeve shirt under his uniform Sunday. Joe was surprised to see it because Blount spoke passionately Friday night on the Buccaneers Radio Network about how a sleeve gets slick in rainy weather and can lead to fumbles.

Blount specifically said he would not be wearing a sleeve Sunday in the Washington downpour in order to have maximum ball security.

But look in the picture from Sunday’s Bucs-Skins game.¬†Blount is¬†chasing his own fumble, punched from his clutches by D’Angelo Hall.

So what gives? Joe looked at Blount’s college game photos. No sleeve. So it’s not like he can’t run without it. Perhaps he got nervous during the one-hour¬†radio interview Friday and mis-spoke? But Joe doubts that.

This is almost a great a mystery as Greg Olson giving up on the run in the first quarter.

    Maybe he was cold?

    You knew a fumble was coming the way he was dragging defenders and not going down. Sometimes I wish he would just go down after the first down if he has more than 1 guy on him already.

    I am more worried about the fact that our D couldn’t do the same when we were trying repeatedly to do so. What, do the skins have stronger biceps that us?

    It was punched from his arms by the guy who missed the tackle. It took a prefect punch to knock it loose. To me its not that big of a deal.

  4. JDouble Says:

    Because Geno Hayes is the size of a safety with girly arms and Ruud is a Pansy.

    I wish Blount would’ve gotten up and punched De’Angelo Hall in the face like he did that Boise State player…

    Is there anyone in the league more ghetto than De’Angelo Hall? Besides his buddy Roddy White?

    Have to agree with you there Snook…..can not stand Hall. He does have a good punch out though……of course he does have a lot of practice chasing dudes down from missing tackles lol.

    I think what he said on the radio was that he wouldn’t be wearing “long ” sleeves. At the time i took that to mean no sleeves but maybe he just meant the full length sleeves.

    Also De’angelo hall is a b@#ch. I love how K2 kept getting in his face all day long. I thought for sure he was going to bait him into a 15 yarder. As a matter of fact I was shocked he didn’t get one when he nearly shoved an official.

    I don’t care if he was completely naked — Hall’s punch was perfectly placed and there was no way Blount could’ve held that ball.

    Well when you have the ball wrapped up in both arms you can hold on. You have to secure the ball but you also have to run aggresively and get those extra yards. There is a happy medium somewhere and Blount just needs to find it.
