“It’s A One-Game Season”September 6th, 2012
The leader of the New Schiano Order has set no limit on Doug Martin this weekend.
The rookie running back’s carries will be based on feel and urge, so Schiano said today. Schiano said he knows it’s a long season, but that’s not relevant Sunday and he’ll worry about that kind of stuff in future weeks.
“You get to play this game this Sunday. It’s a one game season, you know, as far as I’m concerned,” Schiano said. “And then we pick up the next one after that. So, you know, you do everything you can to be 1-0 after this one-game season.”
Frankly, Joe would love to see Martin get 25 carries and passes out of the backfield. And see LeGarrette Blount get his 20+ totes of the rock and be used diversely, as well.
If the Bucs are doing that, they’re going to stay out of trouble and beat Carolina. Schiano says he loves to run the football. Joe hopes that passion is evident.
