I don't think Blount is a fumbler.
Well, we all know how Blount likes to knock out Boise State players...
Blount will most likely retain the "starter" label, but it doesn't really matter. It's pretty clear Martin and Blount will work as a tandem sharing touches about 50/50 just like Bradshaw and Jacobs did for the last five years for the Giants. As far as Blount not applying himself, only report I've seen that claimed that is the nonsense from Charlie over at WalterFootball that claimed Mike Williams and Blount were lazy....from an unnamed source of course. News flash: The entire roster got lazy last year. This will be Blount's first full offseason and first time with a real RB coach. If he doesn't show vast improvement as an all around back this year, then fine, but this rampant unfounded hate for Blount is driving be insane. Everywhere I look there is negative comments about this guy even though he has been nothing but great for us. Even if Blount remains a one dimensional runner for his entire career, he is still an amazing runner. I go back to the Bradshaw and Jacobs comparison and point out that after 6 years Brandon Jacobs is still way more one dimensional than Blount is after just 2 years....and they have figured out ways to use Jacobs quite well. People need to get off the guys freaking back and be thankful that we have such an amazing talent on our roster.
It's funny how everywhere I read they say Martin is an instant starter.
It's funny how everywhere I read they say Martin is an instant starter. If I were Blount I would take this as a challenge and say hey, Iv'e got something to say about this and Martin will have to beat me out. Remember everyone, Blount has not had a full camp with the Bucs so he had to step in and learn on the fly. This will be his first chance to bear down and learn and we have the coaching staff to help him. Blount is not incapable of blocking or catching out of the backfield. All he has to do is apply himself and that is the key. Blount and Martin will make a great 1-2 punch. Can't wait for the season!
Martin is a lock for a 1,200+ yard season barring injury

Your not a loyal Doug Martin fan bro.
