Keep Milking The Bell CowNovember 18th, 2012
Doug Martin has 1,000 yards rushing on the season after today’s 24 carries and 138 yards.
Think about that for a minute. That’s 1,000 yards in 10 games.
There was no LeGarrette Blount sighting today, no pretending that the Bucs aren’t going to ride the Muscle Hampster hard on the march to the playoffs (maybe). Yeah, there’s the lurking rookie wall to look out for, but it seems the New Schiano Order isn’t concerned regardless of what they say.
And Joe’s fine with pounding the Muscle Hampster. Let’s see how much the new bell cow can take and prepare to shut him down if the Bucs fall out of the playoffs, or limit him later in the season if necessary. Right now, this season is about winning. The postseason is in reach. Frankly, the Bucs control their own destiny with six games to play.
Keep milking the bell cow.
Yes, Josh Freeman rose to the challenge at a time when he couldn’t fail, but Joe’s got to hand out a game ball to the Muscle Hampster. And yes, Joe’s convinced Muscle Hampster’s goal line fumble was a lousy call that thieved a touchdown from the Bucs.
