Those fines he received really seemed to take away much of his aggressiveness. I do think he is still struggling to learn this defense, but he seemed to be playing much more tentitively this year. Nevertheless, this is his make or break year...and I don't mean he gets another season, I mean this offseason and training camp.
that doesn't explain his coverage skills... and also, you see players get fined over and over again because you can't force FOOTBALL out of them, so Martin is going to turn Deon Sanders? sounds like a bigger issue than just being worried about fines.. and regardless, if he makes tackles, he gets paid..
now I know everyone wants to ignore this, but the last 2 games (maybe 3) I have noticed some hard hits from Martin.. they only happened maybe 2 times a game, but allow me to digress..
