Still would have preferred Ellington a round earlier but James has impressed, humble hard working kid, hard to not like that pick in hindsight.

RBs are a dime a dozen. Use them, burn them up  and then throw them away when they want the second contract.

^^^^This.

There are no more than 3 (and probably really 1) running backs in the league that make a difference. You can mix up the rest, and their really all the same.

No. You preserve them.

Shortening a career is just stupid.

This space for rent....*sigh* I trusted you coach.

Looks like James reads holes better and runs with better balance and power.   Martin looks a little faster and quicker.  Play them both and use their strengths.


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Who are you talking to?

This coaching staff?

 LMMFAO. They couldn't play to the strengths of their players if their strength was losing.

Hopefully this changes at some point this year, but we'll see.

Secret Superstars: Week 9
Gordon McGuinness | November 7, 2013

Mike James, HB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers



Before the season began it would have seemed like an utterly preposterous thought that the best single-game performance from a Buccaneers running back wouldn’t come from last season’s breakout superstar Doug Martin, but instead from sixth-round rookie Mike James (+3.0). But, with Martin out due to injury, the former Miami Hurricane seized the opportunity in just his second career start.

He wasn’t much of a factor as a receiver, with just two receptions for 8 yards, but you can forgive that when he was as good as he was on the ground. Of his 158 yards, 89 came after contact, working out at an average of 3.1 yards after contact per carry. Adding six missed tackles as well, he finished the game with an Elusive Rating of 48.2. Not satisfied with all of that, he added a touchdown of his own on 1st-and-Goal with 2:23 to go in the first half.
