Todd Bowles Responds To Pouty Lenny Report
November 7th, 2022
The massive TV audience for yesterday’s Bucs-Rams game heard a live report of Leonard Fournette being a me-first guy on the Tampa Bay sidelines in the second quarter.
CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson said the following: “Fournette was extremely frustrated during that last drive because he didn’t see the field. Rachaad White came off the field, went over to him and said, ‘We need you.’ Such respect between these two guys.”
It was disturbing to hear in real-time. It was early in a close game and Fournette hasn’t looked like a stud player in weeks. Was he really having a loud pity party because White got playing time and Ke’Shawn “Sneak” Vaughn got his first snaps of the season?
That’s a disturbing sign for Fournette, who was a volatile teammate in 2020 when it came to his attitude.
Head coach Todd Bowles was asked today about the report and said he knew nothing about it in any way.
Joe hopes it was a heat-of-the-moment reaction from Playoff Lenny strictly because he wants to win so badly and believes in himself — that it had nothing to do with putting himself before the team.
