With Martin, this buy time to get into camp and see what shakes out with other rosters. If the FO didn't panice last year, for better or worse they won't panic this year either. Besides, I really don't think they had any major expectations of Martin.
Slow-grilled steaks on the grill a couple of weeks back... I'll probably never sear my steaks again, as these were easily the juiciest, most flavorful steaks I've ever had. Charcoal grill at only about 250 degrees or so inside, 1-1.5" thick KC strips, and it took almost 15 minutes to cook, but sheer perfection. I wish I would have paid more attention because the coals didn't really light due to humidity and wind, so I just gave it a shot. Am going to experiment more soon.
The man was simply unstoppable in his prime, and that was with Jake Delhomme slinging the ball. Plus, I've never seen a non-RB player get tackled/make crazy catches inside the five as many times as Smitty... guy was probably 30 total yards away from another 10 or so career receiving TDs.
