    If I knew he was guaranteed 15+ touches a game he would be my flex player. I drafted him in my dynasty league.

    Elijah McGuire will become one of the top rushers in NFL history barring injury. He runs so much like Curtis Martin, it was only appropriate for him to become a jet.

    I was thinking more like the guy that made a living jumping up and over for the Jets that lives down the road, Johnny Hector.

    I'm not buying that's it's the real king... until he fills at least half a page with 27 different topics all fashioned into a single message. And if he doesn't respond to this message slamming me... it's not the real king.

If his coaches realize what he offers... they have a pro bowl athlete on their hands.

    Had a neighbor that played at NISH with him. He signed the conference letter of intent with LSU n Cholly Mac which shut down SEC programs recruiting him. aTm came in later, then it allegedly got nasty behind the scenes and LSU parted ways with a noted Lafayette donor. Wasn't about money or inducements. Allegedly even law enforcement got involved. BasinBear might know the whole story but I don't think he'd elaborate past what's been posted.

    I simply admire the guy after watching stud after stud from the Acadiana region go to LSU because they were LSU and ride the pine 4 years. It took a lot to tell LSU no back then.

    Eli can be that guy for the Jets if things fall right.

    Had one good screen pass where he almost scored and slipped on on one where he would have had a good gain. Cleveland load the box and wasn't going to let the Jets run. Pillard(sp) got hurt so Eli should get more touches next week

    I was too young to know about all the recruiting issues. I just remember they would hand him the ball, he would disappear into the pile, then come flying out. Over and over and over. I would be interested in hearing the recruiting story though....

    Im guessing you meant Powell got hurt. Eli really had a pretty bad game on the ground. 11 carries for 20 yards

    UL Football Re: Elijah Mcguire

    RB Eli McGuire Focused on Doing His Job
    http://www.newyorkjets.com/news/arti...6-b7c33d818471
    "After amassing 4,301 yards on the ground and 42 touchdowns at Louisiana, the 5'10", 214-pound McGuire went to the Jets with the 188th overall selection in last April's Draft. He showcased his explosion on his first-career touchdown, a 69-yarder vs. Jacksonville in Week 4 that was the longest run by a rookie in team history."

    UL Football Local product Elijah McGuire enjoys surprising rookie season with Jets

    The Times-Picayune
    Elijah McGuire ranks third on the New York Jets with 80 carries this season.

    That's a far cry from the role the sixth-round pick out of Louisiana-Lafayette expected he'd have when he joined the team.

    "I was expecting to come in and just play straight special teams," McGuire said. "But for me to get reps at the running back position, it tells me a lot... that the coaches trust me; so whatever opportunity I get, I've got to take advantage of it."

    So far he's done a good job of that averaging nearly four yards per carry as he splits time in the New York backfield with leading rusher Bilal Powell and backup Matt Forte.

    The former Vandebilt Catholic standout will have a chance to continue his surprising rookie season close to home Sunday when and the Jets face the New Orleans Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

    McGuire's rushed for 297 yards and a touchdown this season while also hauling 11 passes for 113 yards.

    He credits the Jets coaching staff for putting him "in positions to where I could be successful" and said the reps have helped him as well.

    "It's been fast, man," McGuire said. "When I first got here everything was moving fast. I didn't know what was really going on at the time but not that we are 13 weeks in and I know what going on, it's slowed up a lot."
    Even though he wasn't expecting to start or even get game reps at running back McGuire says he tried to prepare as though he would.
    "I always study my playbook and the plays that we have for a certain week," he said. "You got to prepare like a starter. I've been preparing like a starter. Whatever happens, I got to be ready to go. So preparing like a starter is the main key when you are a backup player."
