I posted (and was later proven wrong) that we would be using LMJ like a Sproles or the original Reggie Bush...ie, a bailout pass to LMJ in the backfield, and then let the Ds see if they can catch him. My guess is he is as good as sproles and better than Reggie Bush with a pass in the backfield. Combine that with Vernon and Vance, plus Anquan and AJ/Lockette/ Patton, and we could have a killer receiving team, way better than last yr. Time will tell, but I once again look forward to seeing LMJ on the end of a bunch of those backfield passes , exactly like I predicted last yr. I am hoping my reasoning was correct, but just off 1 yr.
I see this and I'm hoping mightily for it. It could be the next wrinkle Roman sets up. One thing we haven't done is run a lot of screens. Roman can do some nice things with LMJ outta the backfield thus making him our Harvin. I think this is the best way to make up for Crabtree's lost YAC as well.
