My .02 regarding the Bucs' running back situation: Dirk Koetter would be wise to give Jacquizz Rodgers more touches on first and second down. He's hitting holes harder than Doug Martin is currently, has incredible vision and his size allows him to hide. Excellent burst. One-cut runner. Moves well laterally too.
