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.


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.
