I drafted him, dropped him after he busted his shoulder blade, then picked him up again. Guess I'm not as dumb as I look.

Yeah, I drafted JJ as my main backup hoping he would supplant Eddie after a few weeks. He may have won a couple more games for me since Henry would have been benched by the guy who was performing. I think I would have won the game I lost by .8 points. Ahman and Jones could have been a lethal combo!

Oh well, it's all pure speculation, and I am still doing very well.

Thank goodness I reacquired Jones when I did... :-)

Ah yes, the Julius Jones draft...

I can't say I'd tried it myself, but I'm guessing that it didn't work out so well for those who did...

I'd like to think I was a JJ draft pioneer. Unfortunately, I cut his ass about 3 weeks into the season in the MIKL. Otherwise, it might be lights out for everyone else. :-[

I wanna see how he holds up for the rest of the season. I still like him the most of all rookies, but he is running on fresher legs than the rest of the league.

I wouldn't discount the latter quote. Didn't we see this last year with Kevan Barlow?? And 2 years ago with Anthony Thomas??

Both showed great flashes with fresh legs, but absolutely sucked in full season work.

It might not have as much to do with fresh legs as defenses not preprared to handle them. Do you really think the Bears were expecting Dallas to run all over them on Thanksgiving. What footage would they have had to prepare for him? When a team all of sudden becomes a running power house, it completely changes there offense and play calling and the defense then has no way of knowing what is going to hit them next.
