LeGarrette Blount RB PIT Oct 21 '123 Comments

Coach Greg Schiano defended his decision to use LeGarrette Blount on three straight failed plays from the 1-yard line Sunday.

As the Tampa Bay Times notes, Blount has a history of "failures" in goal-line and short-yardage situations. Still, Schiano said he considered Blount his best goal-line option. Perhaps the first-year coach will review some tape and reverse that determination. If so, it could lead to more scoring chances for Doug Martin.

it was the same bad play call 3 times in a row and it was more than1 yrd out.. i picked him up for the same reason and watched the game... more the coach than the player... and he got hit in the back feild so add o-line to that
