LaMichael James is a Niner

My point is more condemnation of Roman who lacks offensive playcalling innovation IMO, and praise of Kelly who excels at this. I do believe Kelly would help James succeed, but this is just my biased opinion from Eugene, and moot considering the valid points you made above.

Roman is really creative with the run..... Horrible with the passing

no lets keep jon b,, at least he took a pay cut to stay on the team which shows some desire,, james just folded up his tent and went home, f**k him. instead of using jon b how about just sticking another draft pick in your equation??

I hear ya... nothing really against Baldwin, but the package seems (to me) a bit more attractive than just #61 + LMJ.

Also, I was being greedy, I would rather us keep as many of our picks for possible trades. I'd like to see us end up with a 1st rd, three 2nd rd picks (one of those being early) and two 3rd rd picks .
I don't want him traded at all. Here is why.

1.No team is going to give us the second round value.
2. I don't have to cry when watching Punt returns anymore.
3. UFA Gore and Hunter are both free agents after this season.
4. We save money using him and Lat in 2015.
4. Did I say were saving money, o right cause were going to need that money for colin, crabtree, aldon, Mike to name a few.
the word it out that he's being shopped around. We'll be lucky if he doesn't commit suicide by training camp.
f**k this doot
Looking forward to this thread being in NFL Talk someday soon
If we move him I hope it if for a player not a pic. I would rather take another stab at deal like Baldwin. Sure it didnt really make a big difference but I think there is a better chance of getting something out of a guy who may just be in the wrong situation than hitting on a 7th round pic.

I think they should trade him. Lattimore being healthy introduces a very real problem for the 49ers: they can't really justify having four running backs on the active roster.

A guy like Anthony Dixon wasn't a running back so much as a utility tool: he could play fullback, he could be a short-yardage running back, he could be on coverage teams on kicks/punts... James is pretty one-dimensional. He's a conventional running back, that's it. He's also a very mediocre return man. Perhaps with more experience he'll be more reliable back there, but he looked very shaky at times (I guess he was better than Kyle "Automatic Fair Catch" Williams, but let's face it, that's not saying much). Anyway, I think Latt/Hunter/Gore are all very-clearly ahead of him on the depth chart, in terms of what they bring as a running back.

It also doesn't help that James seems like an idiot. He's made numerous remarks on Twitter about frustration with the front office / playing time. He seems like an idiot with a poor attitude .

LMJ is the only running back besides lat who is under contract after this season. Gore is old and will cost money, Hunter will want to be paid and have a chance to start. I'd be fine if gore retired, Hunter walked, and LMJ and Lat split the carriers. And I see that happening, cause trents got a hard on to draft a running back every year in the first 4 rounds...

what is so wrong with hunter wanting more money and the chance to start. he has done nothing wrong during his stay here and to me he is the most valuable player on our offense that no one wants to talk about. the blather about gore has been going on for the last two years so nothing new there but hunter is a complete back, run, block, decent speed and can return kicks in a pinch. why is he almost craig dahl status on the zone in regards to being a whipping boy??? you are ok with putting out to pasture our two two PROVEN backs in favor of two people who have about 30 carries in a nfl regular season game.. wow

the duke said nothing wrong. i know i had a heart attack everytime james went back to receive a punt and f**k him and his attitude. hell even bowman on one leg is at the teams headquarters, credit to aldon for being here even though he knows he could create a zoo. james reminds me of fred beasly at the end of his niner career when he chose to stand away from his team mates on the sidelines during a game. time to go so he can achieve korey sheets and nate davis status on the web zone
why we don't use him, still confuses me. He's immensely talented.
