C'mon man, this is just hater shit. Burton? Agholor, who if not for garbage time wouldn't even have a catch?

He scored 18 fucking td's last year. Ok, so he didn't look great against Washington. He still did decent enough all things considered, and now isn't even on the field. It's insanity to write him off right now.

Do you think him being 15 pounds heavier can make last year's success less likely?

Dude, you said he was less of a weapon than Burton. That's pure hater shit.

I have no personal connection to Blount - I felt it was a great signing for cheap, someone who could get those 3rd and shorts. He scored 18 fucking times last year. He isn't Barry Sanders, but to write him off now is sheer lunacy, that's all I'm saying.

Which makes Sproles all the more remarkable.

Of course, it helps that he isn't carrying extra poundage.

I see your point. I was hopeful too. Going by what I've seen in the preseason and the few carries in the games and what every writer has sai about the practices, I am not confident in his ability. Then Caplan mentions the weight, and the lack of effort in pass protection, and I lose patience. Given the ineffectiveness of Smallwood, they can give him a shot if they want. But Smallwood had a good preseason game and good reviews in training camp. As quick as Sproles had to be for the 4.8 average yesterday, realistically, I don't think Blount is nearly as effective. If your point is give him the three carries Smallwood had, then I guess. We just don't have the luxury of wasted plays.

The lack of extra poundage helps. The fact that the has never been a featured back (and had 100 carries in a season) also adds life to those legs.

He's a freak.

The team he scored "18 fucking times" for thought he was worth writing off.

No, they thought he was worth bringing back, which is why they made him an offer. He wanted more, and they held firm, as the Pats are known to do. Unless you're Tom Brady, you ain't playing hard ball with Belichick. Now he gets to sit on the bench and watch us throw all day, and hear about how much he sucks, instead of scoring touchdowns and picking up short yardage from a coach that knows how to use him.

I just have to laugh at this shit. Eagles fans really deserve our reputation sometimes. Guy has a monster year, gets signed, has a below average first game, gets almost no playing time the second.....HE'S FINISHED LOL.

QUOTE
After two months of free agency, the Patriots have offered starting tailback LeGarrette Blount a contract. However, with seven other backs currently on the roster, the tender may be more shrewd strategy than earnest declaration of interest.

New England offered Blount a one-year, $1.1 million contract Tuesday, but the deal appears more like a ploy to recoup a compensatory draft pick should a rival franchise show interest down the road. If another team offers the bruising back a deal, the Patriots will have the option to either match those new terms or receive a compensatory pick in return.

You're as predictable as Andy, without the intelligence or annual 4 months of success. So they made him an offer, and someone else signed him for more, and they decided not to match it? Wow, stop the presses!

They wanted him back - for the right price. He chose to go elsewhere for more. Therefore, once again you're wrong about something related to football. Aren't you used to it by now, you sad little beta cuck?

No. They didn't want him back. That is made clear in the article (and every article about the subject) and the fact that they had 7 RBs on their roster when they made the offer.

You think they signed a restricted free agent (Gillislee) only to have him share goal line carries with Blount? I sure hope you're not as ugly as you are stupid.

The article is speculation, which is *gasp* what average sportswriters do. The fact is, he was given an offer at a price they were willing to pay, and he was offered more by someone else. They didn't match it. You're just running with this because you're upset at always being proven wrong about running the ball, and desperate to grasp at any straw you can.

Is this you?
