"We can definitely be the best duo in the NFL, with the schemes that we have, with the offensive line that we have, with the blocking and the confidence (Martin) has in me and the confidence I have in him," Blount said. "It's definitely going to be a really good fit. We have the potential to be the best backfield in the league."
Within the same write-up on NFL.com, Brian McIntyre correctly gave us our props though:
A professional athlete expressing confidence in his own abilities is nothing new or shocking, so we shouldn't overreact to Blount's comments. For now, though, between the Carolina Panthers' duo of DeAngelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart and the quartet of running backs on the New Orleans Saints****, Blount and Martin aren't even the best backfield tandem in the NFC South.
After I saw the highlights of their preseason game earlier this morning, I thought to myself "We're gonna beat their asses in the opener!" Can't wait!
