Arizona Republic: It's a good thing the Cardinals coaching staff
threw a few bones to Edgerrin James after he was benched in favor
of rookie Tim Hightower, because the veteran RB revealed hat he
would have quit on the team and walked away. It almost got to that
point, too, as James didn't play in 3 games and in 4 others, had
only 7 total carries. Until responding with 173 yards his past 2
games, including a 73-yard effort to beat the Falcons in last
Saturday's playoff game, James has spent much of the season on the
sideline. James' return to the Cardinals' offense has given the
team new hope, especially this week heading into their NFC
divisional playoff game against the Panthers. "We all feel great
for Edge," QB Kurt Warner said. "He's been a great teammate and a
great leader on this team. I know he went through some frustration
and disappointment earlier in the year, but couldn't be more
excited, not only for what he's doing for us, but for him to get
back out there and have some success himself." Asked whether being
more of a contributor down the stretch could make him think twice
about his future with the Cardinals, James paused to reflect, but
wouldn't bite.
