Think most of us were expecting this, but good to hear. He's earned it... Very Happy

He has looked fantastic, Blount just runs into the backs of the o-line..easy choice.

Does Blunt still figure to be a big part of the offense, or will you look to move him?

I doubt we move him. And, given Schiano's history, it's tough to tell if he gets many carries.

I wouldn't rule it out. Depends on what we get for Blount. Michael smith has shown enough to be the # 2.

As expected, Martin is just flat out better. Excited to see him in some real games.

It will be nice to have a Tampa version of Ray Rice. Teams will have to guess whether were running or passing now.

Would you move him for a third or a fourth? I don't know if I would. And that's about what I see us getting for him.

I'd like to see more from Smith before he's handed the number two spot.

Well said. We won't be nearly as predictable as we used to be with Blount.

Martin has been as advertised. I couldn't be happier with him. He could flirt with 1,500 yards from scrimmage as a rookie.

Honestly we still will be one dimensional with Blount on the roster. Martin I see getting the bulk of the load bc Blount is still one dimensional. I think a 3rd or 4th rd pick is a steal for Blount if you ask me.

Smith I think has done enough to ear the # 2 job bc other than the one drive against Miami Blount has t Done much

This. And honestly I see Martin getting the bulk of the snaps bc Blount is still one dimensional. Martin is as advertised and I love it.

He had 1,000 yards as a rookie and almost had 800 last year. I don't think that exactly qualifies as "hasn't done enough." Smith would fall under that category.

22 carries
79 yards
3 receptions
18 yards

That doesn't exactly scream proven to me.

Still can't block or catch. One dimensional. Martin will take the bulk of snaps.

Perhaps Blount will crush Doug Martin with one mighty blow of his fist, and re-claim the starting job.
