It’s been quite a season of ups and downs for Cardinals running back Edgerrin James, who was the teams starting running back on opening day, only to then be benched earlier this season for rookie Tim Hightower.
James even went through a stretch where he carried the ball for just 7 times for 15 yards in seven games after the benching. Then all the sudden in the playoffs, James came out of nowhere to have three solid games, and now he’ll be the starting RB in the Cardinals Super Bowl next Sunday vs the Steelers.
This season James has 514 yards on the ground on 133 carries with three TD’s and a 3.9 yards per carry average. In the three playoff games through, James has run for 203 yards and a score. His running with some success against the Steelers will go a long way in the team possibly scoring the upset.
