Shouldn’t a head coach get more than one week into an NFL season before his players are already criticizing the play calling? Every game counts in football and losing can be extremely frustrating, but most coaches need a little more than 6.25 percent of a season to prove themselves. Maurice Jones-Drew and LeGarrette Blount do not seem to care.
While premature, Blount may have a case. He was supposed to be a major part of the Buccaneers offense this season, yet he carried the ball only five times for 15 yards in a loss to the Lions on Sunday. The game was relatively close the entire way through, so the Bucs probably should have stuck to their game plan rather than running a two-minute offense for much of the second half.
