No Sophomore Blues For MartinSeptember 15th, 2013
Joe and every other Bucs fan should be thanking the heavens for Doug Martin. He’s that good.
Martin was back to his workhorse, superstar self today, hammering out 29 carries for 144 yards against the Saints. He hammers defenders between the tackles and is explosive, smart and tireless. And it’s clear his difficult opening day was more a function of a dysfunctional offensive line.
Gabe Carimi and Davin Joseph both looked rejuvenated today, and they gave Martin enough room to seize daylight.
It’s sad the Bucs wasted his performance. How do you knock around Drew Brees, pick him off twice, run for 160 yards on just 33 carries and still lose?
The Bucs found a way.
