No we don't...
I trust ODN with this one. LaMJ sounds even worse then LaMic or LaMike......
I like James...sounds dignified and is actually his name. No other James on the team so unless you confuse him with a basketball player of some note...
Also agree with this, I usually say James, however no one in my family remembers his name so everyone else calls him "that little speedy guy" lol.
Also to address someone else's post about not being justified in comparing James to Sproles is misguided. I've known about Sproles since he was in high school, I had several friends go to football camps with him during high school and I watched him in college as well and hes been in the NFL for years. Sproles is a between the tackles runner because he is so compact but he is clearly more of an option, screen pass back, just as James is a great between the tackles runner because of his size but just like Sproles he is at his best when you get him in space either by way of pitches or screen passes. James has 3 years with of college tape, yes that is different from the NFL but if you can find some basic comparison in the NFL then you just simply didnt watch James in college.

Give LMJ time, once the game slows down for him, I think he can be something special. That said, Hunter is looking great so far.
I don't think they get in each other's way at all. Hunter is an excellent backup for Gore and will spell him in the base running sets.
LMJ is a different player, he is a scat back who operates better in space and seems to do real well with that option play we've been running.

Sadly lmj reminds me of dexter carter.
Dexter Carter ran fast in a straight line, with poor lateral quickness. LMJ has supreme lateral quickness. The only thing they have in common is that they both go down easily with contact, but that does not make them the same player.
