He has shattered the "myth" that he can't pass protect while wearing shorts in non-contact drills.....how's that work exactly ? Also easy not to fumble when no one is allowed to try and tackle you , lol.

I'll be skeptical till I see it in the games.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

The knock on him was he couldn't remember his assignments.  If he's doing it now then the problem -- which IMO was not his

no personal accountability huh?

It's pointless to use highlights to show that a guy can do something when they leave out the plays when they don't.

Martin was drafted because the bucs had one NFL caliber RB - that's dumb.

I am sorry to see folks being so negative towards Blount - sounds to me like the new staff has shown the leadership the young man needed.  Not all (or many) arrive in the NFL ready to meet the the "personal accountability" needed to be successful.  Most other teams had two advantages over the bucs last year.  Established veterans - always handy to help young players get acclimated, and a demanding coaching staff.  jmvho

This is the most intelligent post in the thread.

That is like saying all the time Superman saved the Earth is pointless because sometimes people still die.....the guy is an amazing runner. AMAZING. UNIQUE. RIDICULOUSLY GIFTED.....but lets ignore that because sometimes he has bad plays.  ???  Let's ignore his highlight reel and the fact that in two years his highlight reel puts many 10 year vets to shame. Let's just force the guy right out of town so he can be amazing somewhere else and then we miserable Tampa fans can have something else to complain about.

P.S. The guy has only been in the NFL for two years, this year, right now, is his first offseason, and it is now common knowledge that the coaching staff he had those first two years was clueless and under qualified....but lets ignore that too.

Apparently, the message board gurus knew more about Blount than the last coaching staff. We'll see what's up this season.

PR.com comes across to me as a cheerleader for the Bucs and aren't necessarily as critical as they should be when warranted.

Are they afraid of losing their press passes and media access?

Martin > Blount

Heading forward

Martin is reliable on short distances where Blount at 6'0 250 is pretty much useless. That's why Martin was brought in, because he can move the chains, catch passes, and improve the overall RB depth.

HAHAHHA! So funny. If they aren't constantly looking at the glass half empty like typical Tampa sports media....they are cheerleaders. Gotta love it.

Didn't know thinking that Blount is good for a NFL #2 back was hating.

    As Schiano noted in a recent chat, last season's Bucs were primarily done in by inconsistancy. Blount was no exception. Had some highlights, had some lowlights. I'm gonna chalk last season's issues up to a combination of insufficient time to LEARN things like pass pro as thoroughly as needed, as well as insufficient practice time to iron out any kinks. The fact that he's putting in the time and effort NOW while getting plenty of PRACTICE bodes well for fans. Adding Martin will give us a 2nd quality back, which we'll need if we're ever gonna be a dominant running team.

Out of all the negative posts in this thread....why do you assume I am referring directly to you?
