New Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano has told LeGarrette Blount that if he doesn't stop fumbling, he won't start. Is Blount's fumbing problem really that bad?
Thibs55: "Still no excuses but 5 fumbles is not even that much. Can easily be fixed. "
NUM8ER 1: "He just had a bad year. I'd like to see him have a good season. Pick someone up in the draft that can catch the ball and just compliment him."
ajaviles: "I think he has that talent. But I don't think he's got the head to actually put it all together. I think he could be a consistent 1,000yrd rusher off of his talent alone. "
openminded43: "Most all of Blount's fumbles were when he was already stood up driving the run and he was stripped by one of the 5 players trying to tackle him!!! The Correction may just be him knowing when the run is over and go down!"
kevinholdren: "Mike Alstott fumbled frequently early in his career, it was corrected, and Alstott went on to be one of the greatest Fullbacks to ever play the game."
Meatfish66: "Yup, Blount fumbled too much. But that's far more indicative of how poor the ability of the previous coaching staff was to teach basic fundamentals to the team. (Exhibit B: the entire defense's 'tackling'). "
