Trueblood May Get A Shot At Guard

After I posted yesterday’s entry, I saw that the Bucs actually were going to try out Jeremy Trueblood at right guard, but I went ahead and kept it up there because I really am quite lazy.
“I like his competitiveness, his fight, his desire. (Moving to guard) can be done. It’s a matter of are you willing to do the things it takes to get the job done, and I know he is. Ted’s in the mix, still, along with Cody Wallace and Jamon Meredith. We’ll figure it out.”
One thing you can’t question about Trueblood is his competitive spirit. If the job was to chew glass, everyone else would have Coke bottles and he’d have a church window just to make it interesting. And Trueblood has more NFL experience than the other three people listed combined. My understanding is that he and Davin Joseph are really tight, so he’s got a Pro Bowl player who can instruct him on the job. So yeah, give him a shot at guard. Have him line up right next to the guy who took his job on every play and just give him a little wink before the snap that says, “You can’t get rid of me that easily.”
