Although LeGarrete Blount says that the Bucs could have the best backfield in the game, his Coach Greg Schiano says that he don’t know who will be the starter, and he’s not in a hurry to find out.
“I’m not going to make it happen,” Schiano said Saturday. “If I feel it should go one way and the staff feels that way, I’ll do it. Otherwise they’re two good backs, and a lot of teams do that now, in this day and age.”
Blount has a point, because pairing him up with Rookie RB Doug Martin, they could very well have one of the best depth charts at the position. Coach Schiano says that neither of the two has really solidified themselves as the head man, but it will happen eventually.
“No matter what the decision is, they’ve both shown already that they’re going to help us, that they’re both going to run the ball,” Schiano said. “I think it’s going to be a fluid situation until someone kind of distinguishes himself as deserving more touches. But I can’t tell you how it’s going to go right now. I don’t know.”
