Sweetdwilly, I think James just had big man on campus syndrome. I don't think he's that emotional of a guy either. Seems very low key. As we get into the regular season and start doing more with him he will look better. We were very vanilla with him this pre-season. Like I said we basically ran him up the middle most of the time, a few times to the outside. Once the regular season starts should give him some pitches/tosses, screens, and get him lined up outside for some quick throws.... basically just getting him the ball in open space. He will have to earn it being the #3 so that's good. The better/harder he plays the more carries he will get.

I didn't like James from the moment we drafted him. Something about his personality rubbed me the wrong way. He seemed cocky and not really that excited to be a Niner. It was just the subtle things in his interviews that bothered me. I'm not glad he's hurt, but it wouldn't bother me if we traded him tomorrow.

I never understood the complaints about his personality. Only in ninertalk, I guess.

Some I'm not the only guy you've heard that from.

So you're your saying a players personality doesn't have any impact as to whether or not you like them? The way a player acts and presents himself has a lot of impact on his fan base. Willis is ever bit as good as Ray Lewis was, but because he's quite and not "inspirational" he doesn't have nearly the fan base or recognition. I find it weird that someone's personality doesn't move you one way or another. Dixon's can do work ethic and desire has won me over. Its not that he's so great, although he's greatly improved.

Everyone's different though. Not everyone is like Quinton Patton. Guy is very energetic... like I said think James is much more mellow. Also, to a guy like Patton coming from that school making it to the NFL might be a bigger deal than James who knew he was going to be in the NFL long many years before he was. Maybe James sees it as ok I have made it but that's the beginning. I want to see what I can do. Some guys might be more like I can't believe I have made it. Not saying Patton but some guys just happy to be in the NFL even if they don't do much once there.
I'm fairly sure the PUP is not an option for James as he has practiced with the team this pre-season. It's IR or nothing for him now.
Lamichael is Hurt????? When?? How?? Why??? WTH was he even playing the last preseason game of the year????????? GOSHDANGIT!!!! It shoulda been nothing but 4th stringers!!!! WTH>>>>>>

Cam might not even be active on gamedays this year. At least he's developing into a nice player for the future.

Patrick Willis also never committed murder. Surely that should be a positive check in this personality rating system of yours.
sux. I was wondering why he was getting so much PT in the last PS game.

Check out Patrick's life on YouTube. I'm always leery of people that talk the talk but don't walk the walk. Ray Lewis was a good football player but his behavior has put him in situations that contradict the image he portrays. Patrick is inspirational and he doesn't have to tell you about it all he time. He is one of the greatest 49ers and his best playing days are ahead.
