I think Mike Reiss of the Metrowest Daily News may have competition for the title of "local NFL writer most deserving of national exposure." While most local beat guys are rehashing the same ideas over and over, Paul Kuharsky of The Tennessean always seems to come up with an angle that isn't really new, just woefully under-covered. Today the issue is college running backs transitioning to the NFL and the difficulty they have with far more complex blitz pickup schemes in the pros. Which NFL running backs do you guys, the readers, think are the best and worst when it comes to pass blocking?
They weren't perfect, but Tampa Bay's two youngest offensive linemen -- Donovan Smith and Ali Marpet -- shined in the Bucs' loss to Los Angeles.
