During Sunday’s loss to the Lions, LeGarrette Blount only managed to get 5 attempts for 15 yards. Meanwhile Earnest Graham had 6 attempts for 13 yards.
Analysis: Blount was largely ignored on Sunday while they concentrated on the passing attack with Josh Freeman attempting 43 passes. The Lions were winning for most of the game, but there was no reason to give up on the running attack. As far as we know, Blount did not suffer an injury on Sunday. Stay tuned for post game questions as to what happened to the running game. This was clearly a terrible game for Blount owners but don’t expect him to repeat this bad performance next week.

I listened to the post-game interview from Raheem Morris. Didn’t sound good. I’m worried that I have a talented pounder RB in Blount who isn’t going to get enough reps because his coach is an idiot. I hope for my sake that I’m wrong, and that Blount will get his reps.
I am still hoping that Blount gets the touches he deserves. Maybe it’ll take an 0-2 record before he smartens up? Who knows. He was a monster last year and Freeman cant be expected to pass 43 times a game to win.
