31 rushing TDs inside the 20 over a three year span in college.

For stats comparison ONLY

Alstott had 58 TDs over 10 years

I think he may be ok as a goal line guy...  but thats just me.


Who knew how good it would feel as a fan when we now know what it\'s like for our team to have a direction, an attitude, and dare I say an offense?.  

Good time to be a Bucs fan.

Yea, the replay showed Zuttah whiffing on the LB and he got a clean shot on Dougie

Yep and he was off balance from getting through the first hit.   I would have liked to see him get it on 3rd.   I guess Blount could have tried to hurdle the line because we pretty much know he wasn't going through it.

i will say he is not a goalline back until he converts at least 1 2nd and goal from the 1. so far he is 0/2

Alstott had 35 goal line scores in his professional career.  And that total's actually a little lackluster.  For perspective, Brandon Jacobs has the same number of goal line touchdowns, despite having played four fewer seasons.  Marion Barber has 34.

Mike's career is an odd case.  His numbers aren't stellar in any area, and he was never the focal point of opposing defenses, but when he stepped between the hash marks, you felt like he was one of the best two or three players on the field.  I don't know how he'll be remembered in 10 or 15 years.

I don't know that Martin is a goal line back, but that doesn't make him a bad back.    Many very good RBs have not been "goalline" backs.

S.A.N.T.A.N.A.

I can't believe someone could put so much energy in posting so much crap ...

What energy? Just takes a few keystrokes.......sorry you don't like it. I thought it was a discussable topic.
the topic I have no problem with... "Martin is not a goal line back" = troll opinion in action, but you're right we can discuss it

It's the first game & Martin hasn't had enough time to show us if he's a good goal line back or not.
The LB filled the gap perfectly and blasted him, not a play to make such an assessment IMO

But now lets keep one of our better players from getting goal line touches?

Again, no problem with the topic but the context is meant for trolling.

Watch his college and preseason film. He is most definetly an effective short yardage/goal line runner. One stuff doesn't mean anything.

If is the same play I'm thinking of, the Carolina Lb'rs played it well.

2 of them,  1 took the lead blocker down and the second came in right behind and had good leverage and pad level from the side on Martin.


I agree - one game does not make or break the young man.

He looked good Sunday, but Freeman has to make some plays and let him rest......

I agree that we should give it to Lorig. He played like a baller on Sunday.

Actually, thinking about it again, he went up against a non baller in Kuechly, so I guess we'll have to wait to see how good he really is.

Thats true. Hes got a much bigger challenge this week in the Giants LBs.

Yea, maybe in our next matchup against the Panthers, we'll put Lorig against Beason who actually is a baller.

Larsen isn't a baller and could go up against Kuechly. Him and Kuechly would match up well.

Slipped up and forgot to sign into your other account?

oops.

Martin didn't have much blocking on his attempts, but I am fine with giving Blount a shot and Lorig. Whatever gets the ball across the goaline is fine by me.
