“I Don’t Think Doug’s Going To Hit A Wall”November 9th, 2012
Joe touched on the realities and myths of the proverbial “rookie wall” the other day, but regardless of how the rookie wall translates in today’s NFL, Josh Freeman doesn’t believe it will affect Doug Martin.
Freeman all but said ride No. 22 like the workhorse he is, during The Josh Freeman Show last night on WDAE-AM 620.
“There’s no question we’re going to play the people that we feel, I mean, the way Doug’s playing right now you can’t take him out. I don’t think Doug’s going to hit a wall,” Freeman said.
As Joe wrote previously, Joe expects the Bucs to ride Martin but completely shut him down if they lock up a playoff spot or get eliminated from the chase. The confidence and production the offense is getting from this guy is just too valuable to mess with now.
