Mike James Has The RhythmNovember 5th, 2013
Joe can say from personal experience that former Bucs running back/fullback Earnest Graham is a very uplifting spirit. So Joe doesn’t want anyone to think that Graham’s earlier fire-Schiano talk was that of a hateful man who is always negative.
Graham’s interview on the Ron and Ian show this morning on WDAE-AM 620 can be heard below in its entirety. Graham seemed most excited talking about rookie running back Mike James. Graham doesn’t see any holes in his game.
“Mike James, I really love his rhythm. You know as far as running the football, he seems to be really, really in sync with the whole concept that happens with running. I think he does a lot of things off natural instinct. He’s not the strongest guy. He’s the fastest or the quickest guy. But, you know, he does everything with a certain rhythm. So he’s very in tune with the game of football. The guy does everything well. He makes the right cuts. His instincts are on point. So I like everything about Mike James.”
Graham went on to say James is valuable on drives because of his consistency, a guy who can be counted on to play mistake-free, and always get positive yardage.
That’s high praise from Graham. And it should have Bucs fans very excited. (Wednesday tease - tomorrow, Joe will deliver a very interesting take from Greg Schiano about James.) Enjoy the full Graham interview below. It’s interesting that he calls the Mike Sullivan offense very, very simple and not complex.
