The Magical Powers Of Doug Martin

October 28th, 2012

Not since LeGarrette Blount was tearing through and jumping over defenders in 2010 did Joe get as excited about the Bucs run game than he did Thursday night watching Doug Martin make the Vikings look like a local high school team.

Then Josh Freeman opened it up and it was all a wonderful offense.

But to read the words of’s Jeff Darlington (he graduated from Seminole High School, by the way), there was a paranormal property that seemed to appear whenever Martin ran the ball.

@JeffDarlington: Each time Doug Martin touches the ball tonight, it looks like there’s just a giant magnet attached to the goal post pulling him toward it.

Martin was sensational Thursday night and so was the Bucs offense. When a team can run the ball with authority, everything — and Joe means everything — will open up.

In the immortal words of Moe Howard, a good running game is essential. “It’s football, chump.”

    Say hello to Myron Lewis, everyone. I sure hope some kind of trade is in the works for somebody.

    It was a great game. Martin will have to put together more good games to meet expectations placed on him.

    I’m beginning to love Doug Martin and the draft pick maneuvering used to acquire him. Yea, Rockstar!

    You people need to work on your reading comprehensive skills and deductive reasoning. Eric Wright has been appealing the Adderall suspension, he’s going to accept his suspension when Talib comes back. Then after the 11th game the 3rd wave of suspensions will occur.

    I pointed out to everyone that that the timing of Talib dropping his appeal was very curious and only led me to believe that there were more suspensions coming in the future and the Bucs would time them so as to lessen the impact to the team.

    It’s possible that another beloved defensive player will not drop his appeal and simply retire at the end of the season.

    I am ignorant (news flash)–is this stuff really that helpful??

    There is NO WAY that Ronde after so many seasons decides to pop pills with the kids haha. No way lol

    Mike. It is very helpful for those that need it. It acts like speed for those that don’t. It also makes you hyper focused. I would say it would help the performance of a person that does not need the drug. I wonder if it is even banned with a RX, it would be easy to fake ADHD and acquire the pills legally. You simply take a test and family history. I personally it, but I do not take any medications for it. I have learned to control it, and use it to its multi-tasking abilities. I also know people that are adults taking Adderall or different medications, and it has helped them out tremnously. Unfortunatly these guys abusing ADHD medications sheds yet another bad light on medication that has helped millions.

    That’s a good point. It is very easy to fake it and be prescribed this medication. That would provide a major advantage to a player with the speed like / focus magnifying effects it has. Believe me, I know from experimenting when I was younger.
