This young man is something special but he can't shoulder the whole load year after year and still remain healthy. It's a real shame Schiano couldn't make better use of Blount. They could have really been a dynamic complement to each other IMO.
I appreciate everyone's optimism, but a full eight games of Doug's rookie season was made up of some really mediocre rushing performances. Martin played like an on/off switch in 2012; he was either one of the best backs in the league (Minnesota, at Atlanta, at Carolina, Oakland), or he struggled for every yard (Dallas, Denver, New York, St. Louis).As a whole, his season was a blast to watch, and he showed some really special qualities for any runner -- much less a rookie missing the two best run blockers on his offensive line. But, when you study the fine strokes, he was a bit too bipolar for my comfort. I definitely hope we see a repeat performance in 2013, but with this team's history, I'm not going to commit to definitives on either side of the coin.
