Doug Martin didn’t win the rushing title, but that’s ok


Despite not taking home the NFL rushing title, Doug Martin had an incredible season. He deserves every bit of praise he gets, and I hope Tampa and Martin can come to terms with a new contract. I would love to see him take another shot at the rushing title as a Buccaneers running back.

“Doug Martin’s push for a rushing title never got off the ground Sunday, as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers running back remained stuck in neutral against a stout Carolina Panthers front. Martin finished with just 48 yards on 15 carries, 30 of which came on one long third-quarter run. That left Martin 16 yards shy of Adrian Peterson, even before the Vikings tailback took the field Sunday night.” – Reported by David M. Hale
