And like you said when its gets cold enough it's hard to breath and it sucks the air out of you.
As for James he's done a heck of a lot better than Williams but hard not to do better than 1 yard average a return. He's doing a good job of securing it so far (knock on wood) but just not sure he has td return potential. Pretty easy to take him down too, especially up the middle. Some times he heads in the wrong lanes or runs into our guys even when it's just 1vs1 ahead of him. Hopefully he gets better with time. His best bet is to hit the sidelines. Wish we would pass to him out of the backfield and use him on offense but at least we are getting some use out of him and he isn't as disgruntled anymore.
I notice him taking some peculiar routes. Sometimes runs right into guys--blockers and tacklers, but all in all I think he is in a learning process and he does have speed on his side. Not a natural return guy jitter bug but should be steady and love his ball security...after the first week or so. Also love his not running backwards! Ginn use to drive me nuts with that.
