Elimination Doesn’t Change Plan For Doug MartinDecember 19th, 2012
The Bucs are out of the playoff hunt and their bellcow rookie running back has plenty of early mileage on him, but don’t look for Martin to get any rest until January.
Greg Schiano made it clear today that the New Schiano Order is, well, too new for Martin to sit down and rest a bit. Schiano said the same holds true for all his top players as the Buccaneers figure out how to win games.
Schiano said backups likely would see more action if the Bucs were, say, an established playoff team that merely missed the postseason this year.
Of course, Schiano’s perspective could change after Sunday’s game against the Rams, especially if the Bucs win, and especially if guys get banged up.
