    Seems the entire NFL missed on Alfred. He appears to be a very good RB. All ya can do is tip your hat to Shanahan for finding him. First, Terrel Davis, then Morris; Wow :o

A. Morris does look impressive but there is nothing wrong with Martin.


Except the fact that he is freakishly small ....

If size matters that much this guy sucks and shouldn't be in the NFL.

Martin isn't even small. He's a pretty huge guy. Being 5'8" to 5'10" is ideal for a RB when they have that much muscle.

Agreed... but he goes down like he's Dexter McCluster

i think being a rookie martin is overemphasizing ball security.  over time he'll find a combination of getting everything he can and protecting the ball.

He sure does and that is why Martin should have backed up Blount.

I'm a bit surprised at the board falling for the Shanahan Shuffle. This is what he does. He takes ordinary guys and they gain oodles of yards running in his offense. Then when those guys go elsewhere, pfft, just like that they disappear.

Just in today's game, the announcers were gushing about Morris "never going down" on first contact. So I watched, and the next 5 runs when he had to beat one unblocked guy, down he went everytime.

As far as size goes, the two guys are identical. Martin was one inch shorter and 4 pounds heavier than Morris at the combine.

Man, I just don't see the easy to go down criticism at all. I see a guy that isn't getting great blocking and might not be hitting the correct holes, but he doesn't look like he goes down easily at all.

There\'s a very real chance the Bucs waive [Revis] before next season. At the very least, it will be a discussion worth having.

Plus we've played some solid run defenses. I expect him to get better as the offense gets more comfortable with each other and we also need to get Blount involved.

It's not too early to complain about Martin. RBs require the least amount of time to develop. RBs drafted in the first round should at least average a 4.0 ypc regardless of the oline or system.


So are you saying that Trent Richardson is also a bust because he is only averaging 3.5 ypc?

I don't think to this point we've gotten round 1 production, regardless of how many excuses are made for the guy. Admittedly, i love the pick but all i care about are results. The guy's longest run is 17 yds.... THAT, my friends, is inexcusable!! RB is the easiest position to have early success and every sunday, i see guys run where holes don't exist, then they bounce to daylight and make shlt happen.

If he's gonna be THE guy, he needs to step the f*ck up!!
