Blount looked heavy to me - and yes, I mean heavier than normal. He looked sluggish...maybe he has training camp-legs or something.
Bigger question. Can someone please explain which college playbook they borrowed for the first and third quarters? I thought I was watching West Virginia or Tulane or something! I don't just mean a gadget play here and there - they were 90% frat house ball during those quarters.
Once they turned Freeman loose in a more conventional pro-football looking offense (like they did last year and in preseason), he did fine. He was confident, accurate, and strong. That loosened up the D in the 2nd Q. Then they come out of halftime and go right back to some wildcat, pistol handoff option run-n-shoot crap.
Tampa was outcoached in many ways, but I thought that offense they were running was bizarre.
