Chucky Preserving Doug Martin

August 24th, 2018

Video below

Joe read an interesting Buccaneers statistic this morning that really made Joe do a head-tilt.

It was about the man who has the most rushing yards per game in Tampa Bay history: Doug Martin.

Yes, really. Per the NBC Sports Bay Area video below updating Doug Martin’s status with the Raiders, Martin averaged 68.1 yards per game as a Buccaneer, good for No. 1 in franchise history.

The accompanying story from NBC shared how Martin is loving having his grandfather nearby in Oakland, as well as lots of family and old friends. Greg Olson, the Raiders’ offensive coordinator and ex-Bucs playcaller, painted Martin as a guy the team is protecting for the regular season because he doesn’t need the extended preseason hits to be ready to roll.

Of course, Chucky is all aboard the Martin train, as you’ll see in the video.

Two years ago, Martin was adorned on the side of the Stadium on Dale Mabry Highway. And then he embarrassed the Bucs franchise on and off the field. … It should be interesting to see how Martin responds.

    I wish him well. His best pro game happened at the black hole.

  2. Season Is Over Says:

    Rojo would run circles around Martin. Just like he did Barber.

  3. Mike Johnson Says:

    I’m intersted to see what Dougie has left in his tank. I get this feeling he will do well in Raider country. Bust out Dougie!

    I once booked a hotel early in Italy……I spent almost a year trying to see if I received the best deal……close but not quite…….I realized I had wasted my time and some emotions in the process….
    Lesson……MOVE ON! Don’t look back… made your deal….focus on the future.

    We didn’t want Doug Martin or we could have kept him…..I don’t care if he is MVP or a bust…..he’s not ours anymore.

  5. Waterboy Says:

    I’m interested to see what Martin does. If he’s successful in Oakland I’ll have to take a closer look at the offensive line.

    The poor Raiders……..
    Chucky is going to screw them up so bad.
    What a sucker Mark Davis is. 100 million guaranteed.

    Joe, I like your words “he embarrassed the Bucs franchise on and off the field”…..for a moment I thought you were referring to a current Buccaneer player.

  10. Wausa Says:

    He will stink.
    He has stunk the last two years. Why would he all of sudden not stink?

  11. Kaptain Morgan Says:

    Hey Joe, Chris Baker was cut today from the Bengals.

  12. ChrisBakersBib Says:

    Now former #Bengals DI Chris Baker earned a 55.0 defense grade across 38 defensive snaps this preseason, the lowest of any CIN defensive interior. Baker recorded zero run stops and zero total pressures in the process.

    LMAO enjoy the wings fatman

    [Normally, a guy using the same five handles in the past year alone would get run. But this username is so clever, Joe’s not just giving you a pass, but a hat tip! Try to stick with one username, please. — Joe]

    that average will drop this year as second fiddle to marshawn. and good luck to them if he ends up being their primary back. doug’s place on the all time list also needs to be qualified by noting that it translated into neither consistent performance nor availability. You never knew with doug whether you’d get a down game, no availability at all, or one of his few ridiculous outings which produced the majority of his stats.

    Did you know that 10% of Doug’s rushing yards come from his 2 best games (3% of his outings)? his top 5 games (~7%) account for 20% of his yardage.

    wish you well doug….

    I remember that game…………that was Doug’s breakout year

    ……..he never performed on that level after that year

  17. Dapostman Says:

    So exactly how many ex Bucs from 2017 are employed in the NFL?

  18. Godeep66 Says:

    Gruden knows a little something about player personnel.

  19. stpetebucsfan Says:

    Doug seems like a genuinely nice guy so I wish him no ill will…even though I lost track of the times he broke into the open, headed to the house, only to be pulled down from behind. He may have been the slowest RB I’ve ever seen who put up numbers like he did during his two good seasons.

    @TBBF Amen brother. There are some wasted emotions/feelings in life.
    Regret is right at the top of the list.

    Given the number of cliches…don’t cry over spilt milk…Elvis has left the building…let it go…and on and on it still amazes me how long it takes JBF posters to get over their hurt feefees.

    Yeah…yeah…yeah…what about that 2nd round draft pick? Over and over and over again.

    Is your name “Dexter Jackson?”

  21. Eric Says:

    No risk for Chucky. He has Lynch if Martin doesn’t work out, and I think a UDFA kid who has broken out for over 100 yards in preseason.

    He is not putting all his eggs in the Martin basket, unlike Koetter.

  22. Eric Says:

    Actually Joe I think his name is Roberto Jose Aguayo.


  23. gambelero Says:

    Is it possible that the Buc’s running game woes were caused by the oline, the one area where we don’t seem to have improved? Derek Carr and Dak Prescott looked like world beaters when they had great olines. Newton had a great oline his one big, MVP year. Their running backs looked like world beaters those seasons.

    If we accept that the Buc’s oline will be average to below average, I think Barber is the perfect back for us. He’ll get what’s there and a little more. A Martin or a Rojo needs an oline that gets them to the second level untouched with reasonable frequency. Give them that and they’ll look like world beaters. Without it, they’ll look terrible.

    Coax Joe Thomas out of retirement.

  24. Bucsfanman Says:

    gambelero- Don’t you dare blame the o-line!!! We all know that a RB should be able to break a tackle when the defender is already in the backfield!

    He’s no longer a Buc so I don’t have anything invested. That said, go get ’em Dougie! Just not against the Bucs…..ever!

  25. Miguel Grande Says:

    Wasn’t it Dougie who was running down the field watching himself on the stadium’s Jumbo-tron thinking he was clear to waltz into the end zone.

    He got tackled on the 3 yard line to his amazement. He thought he was clear, because he didn’t know the Jumbo-tron was not live but on a 1 second delay.

    That and a couple other bone head (miracle) plays cost me about $20K in one day fantasy football.

    That’s why I swore off gambling.

  26. D-Rome Says:

    I could not care less about Drug Shamster. Wildly inconsistent and highly overrated.

    To think that the team got rid of Legarrette Blount for that guy….

  27. BigMacAttack Says:

    I think Martin somewhat planned this, to get back to Cali. Chucky bit. Martin took the Bucs for all he could and wanted to go home. Real men move on, grow up, and don’t play stupid games. He’s a pos and I have no feelings for that clown.
