Rainey Wins High NFL HonorNovember 20th, 2013
The Lions may have Calvin Johnson, but the Bucs have Bobby Rainey, who was just named NFC Offensive Player of the Week. Rainey’s 163 yards rushing on 30 carries and three touchdowns (one through the air) against the Falcons made this honor a no-brainer.
Joe has been stunned by how rockstar general manager Mark Dominik hit on both Mike James (60 carries for 295 yards) and Rainey. Throw in LeGarrette Blount and there’s hard evidence of how you can find extremely productive running backs in the late rounds or on the street. But you still have to pick the right ones, which isn’t so easy. See Michael Smith, Derrick Ward and Kregg Lumpkin.
Kudos to Dominik for being on the rise with his backfield selections, including Doug Martin.
