Bucs HC Greg Schiano says there is no set percentage of handoffs he is looking to give either Doug Martin or Legarrette Blount; rather, he describes it is a “perfect-feel” type of thing. Ideally, Blount’s insertion into the game would give the offense a dynamic and bruising changeup, and that would in turn help Martin when he comes back into the game, rested and ready to provide a different look.
“One week it could be 50-50 and the next week it could be 80-20 – whatever fits the situation perfectly,” said Schiano. “But you’ve got to be careful because when you go totally by feel you can look up and it’s the fourth quarter and he’s only got one carry. So it’s a delicate balance.”
