I liked Grimes, seemed like a hard runner with good hands. I don't see him succeeding in NY however that team is a mess, just put 8 in the box & dare Mark/Tim to beat you vertically.

Exactly! LOL.

And NFLN should have had him as a guest analyst, breaking down the plays with Baldinger there with him.

"So in this package, they tend to do this play...and if it's a hard snap count then it switches to another play like this one here..."

Bastard.

I just saw that the Jets are moving Joe McKnight to CB.

That can't be right, can it? Your best option as a backup CB, out of all the CBs that have to be on practice squads, is your backup RB? And so you sign a RB from another team's practice squad to take his place?

The mind wobbles.

That's what I've heard as well. Keep in mind he was projected as a CB in college until his senior year and was "supposedly" recruited as a CB by LSU but went to USC to play RB.

I think Powell will be taking over for Green soon and they need another guy for depth with McKnight moving over. That would be Grimes.

Don't really understand why they can't get a guy off the street though. Rex probably thinks he can turn him into Sam Shields 2.0

Sounds like Rex is stealing from the Bill Belichick school of defensive backfield management.

Not hammering you on this one, but would just like to say that Meggett is such a steep drop off from Grimes. In fact, Grimes--in my opinion and in Rey's too--was maybe even better (overall, measured many ways) than Forsett. Maybe the veteran aspect & the blocking aspect Forsett is better at...but running the ball? Grimes was on a different level than Forsett IMO.

It's suckening (new word I just invented) that Grimes got away from us.

100% agreed Vinny.

I'll wager a cold beer that Jonathan Grimes starts for the Jets at some point this season.

Fantasy owners, stash him on your IR or bench if you have room. Y'all can bookmark this prediction and mock me mercilessly if am am wrong.

With how Shonn Greene has been playing, I wouldn't be that surprised. If Grimes picks up the playbook and can block worth a damn, I'd drop Greene to the 3rd back and go with Powell as the #1 and Grimes as the #2. If something happens to Powell, then it's Grimes' time to shine.

In my opinion, Grimes would put up Tate numbers if he was RB2 on our squad.
Yeah, I like the kid that much.

No worries GP. I just happen to disagree with you (and, undoubtedly, countless others).

I will admit to under-rating Grimes out of college. He did prove that he has a lot of talent, and that he belongs on the team. And I, like you (and Rey, and countless others) thought he would make the 53. I too liked Grimes better than Forsett.

However, I dont think that Meggett is much worse than Grimes. He is a natural runner, has good lower body strength, and is a willing blocker. Like I said, I think he makes the roster next year, if not at the end of this year if someone gets injured (knock on wood that it does not happen).

I'm with rmartin on this one.
Pre-training camp, I liked Meggett a little better than Grimes.

I thought Grimes ran "a little upright" in college (not that the style can't be successful in the NFL - see Eric Dickerson - whom I saw play at SMU; he was a couple years younger than me.)

There wasn't much tapes of Grimes to evaluate his blockings.

I liked what I saw of Meggett in college, including his blocking skills.

Grimes showed very well in PS though, better than Meggett, but neither was used much in blocking so we can't tell hardly anything about that part.

He didn't run upright during PS as I thought he would.
Perhaps he took in Dickerson's advice by heart "I run upright when I see daylight" (but not in traffic).
