This isn't the first time LeGarrette Blount has hurdled a defender during a long run. However, this one hits close to home as it was the Seattle Seahawks being victimized by Blount as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers continued to roll at home against the Hawks in week 16. Credit where credit is due: Blount's hurdle was one impressive play.â†µ
The long run and hurdle was part of a huge series for Blount. His 48-yard run, with an acrobatic juke along the way, began a string of three runs totaling 102 yards for Blount. The rookie running back finished with 164 yards on 16 carries, but never found the end zone. It wasn't needed, though, as Josh Freeman threw for five touchdowns and Tampa Bay steamrolled the Seahawks, keeping its playoff hopes alive.â†µ
Think there's a few teams that regret not taking Blount now? The undrafted rookie has been stellar all year, electrifying fans with long runs while having the power to dole out punishments. Add the Seahawks to the list of teams that have fallen to, and been embarrassed by, Blount.
