After a fantastic rookie season with the Buccaneers rushing for 1,454 yards and 11 touchdowns, along with 472 yards on 49 receptions. The Muscle Hamster was the ultimate dual-threat back last season as the Bucs were unable to produce a winning season considering Martin’s stellar play. In his season opener, Martin and the Bucs running game was almost not as prevalent as Bucs fans would’ve liked as Martin rushed for 2.7 yards-per-carry and Josh Freeman threw for 210 yards and a touchdown. In week Two however, Tampa pulled a flip-flop where Freeman threw for 125 yards and a TD as Doug Martin ran up and down Raymond James stadium for 144 yards on a solid 5.0 yards-per-carry. Many thought coming into the season the Bucs offense was going to be primarily passing, but as well all know that Martin is just too beastly to ignore. Can he put the Sophomore slump myth to the test? He has as good as a chance as anybody.
