LaMichael James was a Niner (CUT!)

Are you serious? You can't be serious. I've seen enough of James to know he's nowhere near the player Sproles is. Hunter is much more accurately compared to Sproles and for good reason. James = Leon Washington only not as good on special teams. You act like our coaches are morons. If James was all that, he'd be getting guaranteed touches just like that guy in New Orleans. The guy we all want James to be but just honestly isn't. I'm sorry dude but its not even close.


Well gosh, who am I to doubt your obvious expertise. LMJ is the guy this coaching staff sat on all last year, then when their hand was forced, they finally played him, and looky there, he managed to rush for 5 ypg on 38 carries, catch 5 passes for 8 yds per clip, and avg 27.5 yds per kick return. And correct me if I'm wrong, but one of those returns was a 62-yarder that set up the winning TD in a game the 49ers blew a 28-pt lead, and I think he just might have had a nice TD that helped spark the comeback from a 17-0 deficit in the NFCCG.

There might be something behind the scenes we don't know about, maybe has a bad attittude, or HaRo just plain don't like him...I don't know. But to try and state with some air of authority that this kid doesn't have explosive ability is flat out ridiculous.

3rd best RB and the 4th best back in general on the team but is not a special teams ace. Thus inactive. Instead of twitter b***hing like Brandon Jacobs he should concentrate on making a niche for himself on the team.

i think to his credit he took it down right away and sounds like he and JH had a good talk. jacobs on the other hand did nothing to step back and was just an a*****e, which he continues to be to this day.

Well LMJ was doing the twitter thing last season along with Jacobs so this is not the first time.

Empirical evidence would show he's the best kick returner on this roster...a special teams ace that may not make, but he has definitely brings value to ST.
^^^ THAT is a beautiful screen design. Hunter would have easily scored on that one!
His perfomance is not the reason he's not playing. If you think he somehow lost snaps because of poor play you're not paying attention. The coaches prefer a 2 back system and Gore/Hunter are much more compatible. For the Oline its a seamless transistion between Gore and Hunter.

I like LMJ. I think there are starting snaps in the league for him. Just not here. And someone gets hurt best believe he gets a package and at least 10 snaps.

But Lattimore pretty much sealed the deal if he can perform. Lmj knows this. Twitter chirping isnt a creative way to deal with it though.

I hate when players post something on Twitter and dont have the balls to stand by it. f**king kids these days. I would be willing to wage not a single erson asked him if he was traded. Maybe a bs sarcastic fan asking on twitter, but thats about it. Im sure at ths point the guy wants to be traded, and i dont blame him, but he needs to grow a pair and stand by his comments or STFU.

Sure his 29.7 average is great but he has a small portfolio of work. He also needs to be able to return punts or add more to the coverage units. I think it will happen but it is up to LMJ
looks like all is well with LMJs role

He made a little BS comment about being traded. something along the lines of "Everyone keeps asking me if i have been traded....Not to my knowledge..."

He knew what he was doing when he posted it. Grow a pair and stand by it, or dont tweet it. Same s**t he was doing last season. He is just not as blunt and more crafty with his messages than that schmuck from NY, but the message is the same IMO. Like i said, i dont blame him, i just hate when people take to social media instead of growing a pair and taking it up with the team. Or at the very least having the balls to stand by your tweet.

Than why delete it? and im not mad at LMJ. I hate twitter. Especially when athletes use it to be stupid and then delete their stupidness or cry that they have been hacked, when they know they were just being stupid. As if the world hadnt already read it. He did the same thing last season until he got playing time. Its immature. And no, he wasnt simply answering a question.
