Players bounce off Martin's whole body like they used to bounce off Graham's stiff arm when Graham had a full head of steam. Impressive.

Glad we traded up and got Martin. Guy has surpassed my wildest expectations.

What will next year bring when we get some of our Oline back?

I'm excited about this kid but his workload isn't sustainable.  isnt he on pace to set a rookie record for touches?  If we dont trust LGB to supplement him then give Ware a handful of carries each game.

The future looks bright indeed, and that future has already started :)

And with the first pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers select Teddy Bridgewater, Quarterback, Louisville.

Simply because I can not recollect it happening but did Blount see the field at all today?

Best runningback we've ever had, but he needs to keep it up.

Sure it is. Go look at the running back who has the most touches (catches and runs combined) over the last 3 years. He's an inch shorter, 10 pounds lighter and a step slower than Martin. His name is Ray rice. Doug Martin is perfectly engineered to run the ball.

Everyone keeps talking about how insane his conditioning level is... the proof will come over the last few weeks of the season. I do know for sure the guys play doesn't drop off - really its the opposite - as the game goes on. Hes just punishing with his leverage and strength.

I don't think LGB would have 1000 yds at this point in the season, but I could be wrong.  Ultimately what matters is that #22 does!

Congrats and keep up the good work and winning attitude.
