05:30 PM ET 12.19 | The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and head coach Greg Schiano have no plans to limit running back Doug Martin, via Tampa Bay Times. Martin has been the feature back for the Bucs in his first year, edging out LaGarrette Blount for the starting job almost immediately Martin has shown his worth and the staff has responded by showing their faith in him. They have no plans to limit him in the final two games, including Week 16 versus the St. Louis Rams.

Too bad his team has fallen off the face of the NFL playoff earth... or he would merit some ROY discussion.

I can't imagine what their record would be without Martin.

No fault of his.

I don't expect him to have an AP day against the Rams. Freeman cant hit the broadside of a barn with his throws so I expect Martin to see a lot of 8 man fronts Sunday.

Me either... But I can count 3-4 games where he was the difference.
