LeGarrette Blount thinks he's the right size, in the right place


The easiest answer is many have tried and failed because mimicking the DNA of the Patriots' way can't be accomplished without the best coach/quarterback combination of the generation and perhaps of all time.

"There's only one coach that can reach this guy and it's Belichick". Maybe it's as simple as the ill-fated fumble in the Super Bowl?

So what gives? Why are the Patriots the Patriots?

Upon leaving the Patriots for the Eagles, 30-year-old running back LeGarrette Blount says he feels better than ever, and ready to contribute to a new team.

"I've been a part of something special", Blount told FanRagSports.com at the NovaCare Complex on Thursday. "When he's out there, he demands a lot of respect from any team that you're playing against, so I think that plays a big factor in it". "They have a culture of their own". They drafted three offensive players in the 2017 NFL Draft, two receivers and one running back.

Blount feels the Eagles were a really good team before he came and mentioned players such as Brian Dawkins, Duce Staley, and Donovan McNabb when he pointed towards Philadelphia's legacy.

"Basically I'm excited to come here and compete for the job or for whatever position they want me to fill, or whatever they want me to do", Blount said.

It's unfair to make any comparisons with Wentz, but Blount believes he will remain in good hands.

"He has the potential to be a really special player". "He has all the tools that are needed in all of the grind that is needed and he has the mindset to maximize his ability if he just continues to work hard".

Having a bell-cow back figures to help that process along.

LeGarrette Blount has had the opportunity to take handoffs from elite quarterbacks thus far in his career.

"I chose this place as a place that I wanted to be", Blount said. "I'm gonna be at games watching them, for sure".

Blount is used to winning but isn't anxious about being a Band-Aid in a rebuilding project. Despite receiving the extremely rare May 9 tender, Blount signed with the Eagles.

Blount is coming off the best season of his career. "No team goes out there not to win".

None of that was enough for the Patriots to bring him back for next season, but it also wasn't enough for other teams to clamor for his services either. I think they're trying to win now. The Eagles, however, have a trio of undersized backs in Wendell Smallwood, Darren Sproles, and rookie Donnel Pumphrey, but no reliable between-the-tackles runner (assuming the team parts ways with the oft-injured Ryan Mathews).

The number the Eagles are most interested in is 18, the touchdowns he scored for the Patriots as a short-yardage and goal-line specialist.
