    I’m glad he wants to stay but your play will be the only thing that keeps you here

    Doug Martin was a beast under Schiano. Maybe Lovie/Licht should go back and watch tape of his rookie year b/c they have no clue how to employ this guy on the gridiron. Doug gets stronger as the game carries on (1,900 yards from scrimmage as a rookie tells me he can play); releasing Penn/Joseph, trading Zuttah, and Carl Nicks retiring obliterated the chemistry Doug had with his blockers. You cant put Gilkey/Collins/Omameh/Dietrich-Smith in front of any RB and expect 100 yard games.

    Thanyou deeznuts for you comments. I really think that Lovie should give him a fair share of the workload thru preeseason and really test this workhorse in his rookie yea. I just don’t want Martin to get cut loose if he is not injured.Its never too late to keep good running back.Give Him a Chance if he looks and performs well leading up to start of 2015 deason-Go Bucs
