Do you remember Doug Martin?/ JEFFREY S. KING

Tuesday, 6 a.m.

Around the Bucs of 2014, there was a phrase to define a first down run.

It was called “ouch.''

On second down, an attempt to run the ball brought on a different phrase.

It was called “medic!''

On third down, if the Bucs tried to run the ball, we all knew the code phrase.

It was called “I think they broke him.''

There is no doubt that without running support Jameis will have problems. That’s not just on Doug Martin however. Equal parts OL and coaching as well as you alluded to.
