LaMichael James is a Niner

People whining about James retweeting people wanting him to play is pretty damn dumb if you ask me. You don't know the dude so stop acting like you know how he feels. I have yet to see one tweet from him about this team in a negative way. Sure he retweets people saying they want to see him play. How do you know he's not doing that because he thinks it's awesome that they want to see it? Every player in the NFL wants to see the field, i'm not going to be down on a guy for wanting playing time.

Last year some of us thought we busted on Kaep and now some of us want him to start when we should have been expecting to develop Kaep. I am of the same opinion of AJ and LMJ, they need development if they are going to unseat our veteran players.

Kap was going to be a multi year project and QB's tend to take more time. All LMJ needed to do what beat out Dixon the past 4 weeks.

That is why I said he needs to get his special teams on if he is to see the field this season. Who knows, he just might and god forbid we have an injury that puts him out there. We just need to keep watching and hoping
I dont care about him on ST, that's Ginn's job right now. He needs to be the better running back first.

You can't just take the reason why your argument makes no sense and call it 'retarded' without offering an argument against it.

Kids drafted in the 1st and usually the 2nd are blue chip players, they should be on the filed or at least dressed for emergency reasons. All last year everybody pointed out how we had 0 speed. We go out and draft 2 speed guys and dont use them. We aren't a rock solid team from top to bottom. Gore and Hunter are fine after that its a wash. Crabs and Ham are fine after that its a wash. The fact that Dixon was expected to be released and wasn't, and now dresses over a 2nd round pick is not welcoming. RB is usually a easy transition into the NFL, Hunter was fine and was a 4th rnd pick.....Miller transitioned from defense and damn near made the probowl. Our backup QB gets the ball more than our 2nd rnd RB.......not impressed.

Your thought process is stuck in 06-10, just because we drafted them with high picks doesn't mean that should start right away.....Aldon Smith anyone???

Didn't say start, I said play and at least dress. Aldon was dressed and played.

Aldon was the 2nd olb behind haralson course he was gonna get playing time plus our pass rush in prior years was weak so we had to use him, James is behind Frank, Hunter and Jacobs he won't sniff the field unless one guy goes down....god forbid

You realize that 4th string players have to be able to play on kick and punt coverage teams correct? He's 195 pounds, we've got enough guys at his size with more experience playing kick and punt coverage dressing on game days. Harbaugh is all about dressing the guys who will help the team TODAY. James time will come but most likely not till next year

The kid hasn't surpassed Dixon for gods sake

Dixon is activated for games because he plays on ST. He's like Colin Jones last year. Look at MM's snap counts-- Dixon played more ST snaps than any other player. Dixon never sees the field during meaningful situations.
And? We drafted Jenkins and James on the lack of speed argument. Moving the ball better on offense is still a priority and when both top picks aren't even active something is wrong IMO. And the "we are just that deep" argument is retarded. We had Ginn and Jacobs out for weeks and neither guy saw the field. We aren't that deep, they just aren't that good right now.

Umm...

245 yards rushing with 9 different players.

Not retarded.
We had 3 RB's active, the other 6 shouldn't have a baring on James. Unless you think he should lose carries to Kap and Ginn?

Technically four active including Bruce Miller. Arguably five if you include Tukuafu.

Do I think James should lose carries to Kaepernick and Ginn? Gore did. Hunter did. Dixon did.

Result? 245 rushing yards with nine different players. Team currently ranks third in the NFL in rushing.

Why are you saying something is wrong?

A kid taken that high should be dressing on gamedays. Many think Trent is infallible but I really think this pick was a mistake.

He would be 3rd string-Gore, Hunter, James, Dixon.

Before this last game against the Jets no RB other than Gore and Hunter took snaps. Jacobs will come in now and take over short yardage. James offers no special teams value. whats the point of dressing him if aint gonna play either way
Who could they Niners have drafted in rounds 1 or 2 that would be getting playing time? I cant think of anybody. It really didnt matter who we picked, there was damn good chance they werent gonna get any playing time this year.

Why should he be dressing? Does this years team look like it needs rookies to contribute?

It's way too early to judge the pick.

Is it really a bad idea to use draft picks to plan for the future?

Whats wrong with Polk? He would've been a low pick so the rush wouldn't be immediate.

What other RB did we have? Dixon has never offered anything in meaningful snaps.
