Signed LaGarratte Blount. Another 1 year deal I believe.

We get a back + we keep him away from the NYG. Double win hopefully.

I'll be curious to see how he does. He quietly had a real good season in NE last year. 1161 yards with 18 TD's. He had 299 carries and seemed to slow down towards the end of the season.

The hardest hitter in football. :)

I might say this: we’ve always been a running team and I’m sure we will continue to be so. (We’ve been criticized for it, I might add.) But I’ve always felt that three things can happen to you whenever you throw the football, and two of them are bad. You can catch the ball, you can throw it incomplete, or have it intercepted.

I assume Ryan Mathews is as good as gone. Looks like we're running a committee this year between Blount, Sproles, and Pumphery. I'm excited, definitely needed a guy like him.

Blount averaged 3.8yds/carry behind a well coached NE line.  Hardly earth shattering.  Philly's strength has always been a disrupting defense and I look for more of that this year.


50 Years Cowboy Fan ... that's all folks!

You do realize that the Pats line ranked in the bottom third of the league last year right? Without talent well coached means zip. They were 25th in run blocking and 16th in pass pro. And conversely the Eagles ranked third in run blocking and 9th in pass pro and that was with their all pro RT missing ten games. Blount behind that line will cause problems. They did what they needed to do, got their QB plenty of weapons and strengthened their pass rush and secondary.

Never understood why Ryan didn't do better.

Ball security + injuries. He actually seemed better under Chip offense imo.

Sounds similar to when you all signed Murray  :ph34r:

At least it's a one year deal this time haha. You should be happy. The Giants are probably your main competition in the East this year.
