“This Guy’s So Damn Strong”July 1st, 2014
So what Buccaneer blew away Ronde Barber in the weight room?
Who turned the Bucs icon’s head? You might be surprised.
Per a story regurgitated by FOX NFL analyst and Barber co-worker Jay Glazer, that Buccaneer is the Muscle Hamster, Doug Martin.
Glazer explained how Barber had “never seen anything like it,” referring to Martin in the weight room. “This guy’s so damn strong,” were Baber’s words, Glazer claimed. (You can enjoy the full FOX roundtable video below.)
Martin’s power is an element of his game rarely mentioned. Injured on a deep wheel passing route last October (that still makes Joe pound his ahead against a wall), Martin is built for the pounding Greg Schiano was giving him.
Now, Martin’s legs remain fresh and young, and Lovie Smith will use the many complements he has to Martin. It feels like a perfect situation for Martin, assuming the Bucs’ offensive line can somehow jell quickly, with limited talent by NFL standards.
