Doubtful. He has little value at this point unless he is a throw in, for some sort of package deal for another player. I like LMJ, but he is simply a bad fit for our roster and the pick never made sense from day one. Lattimore comes back next season, so it is doubtful LMJ will be on the roster going into next season. Would be nice to get something for him, but not likely.
Title - LaMichael James is a Niner, for now.

LaMike. Focus on the team. You guys just won. Thx, bye.

LMJ struggles fielding punts, although he probably could call a fair catch just as well as KW. It's the kick returns where James absolutely should be the man.

I think a few things on this:

1) I think his blocking is suspect perhaps so he can;t be on the field more, he won't unseat Gore or Hunter on that
2) If all we did was throw a screen or run pistol then as soon as he came on the field the defense would know the call.

Exactly!

Gore and Hunter can go inside and outside. James screams of a one dimensional player and the D would know it. If Latt comes back 100% I would bet we resign Dixon cheap and dump James. Actually we could probably trade him to Philly.

Sproles doesn't scream one dimensional?
My thoughts? Roman is trying to form Kap to be a legit pocket passer. To do this, the last thing Kap needs is new cogs around him. He needs vets who know how to improvise in case plays do not go as planned. Until then, don't expect guys like LMJ, kYle Williams, Baldwin or Patten to contribute.

LMJ isn't close to Sproles' talent level.


So you can decree this from the extremely limited number of touches James has been given? Sproles has made a living coming out of the backfield and burning LB's who can't find him, catches a 5-yd pass and turns it into chunk yardage. Have you seen HaRo put James into situations to utilize his very similar skill set?

His lack of dressing for the games is proof of this. Obviously he isn't some kind of elite talent, if he was he wouldn't be getting passed up by Dix and KW. Either Harbs has a massive grudge or the kid isn't as good as people think. You really believe Harbs likes KW's return ability or the lack of true speed on O?

Sproles is an explosive running back with speed and quickness. Quite frankly, LMJ hasn't lived up to his college billing as an explosive runner at the NFL level. Talent finds the field and it appears to me LMJ hasn't shown enough in practice to warrant being on the field. This is a knock on Baalke more than LMJ as he wasn't responsible for being drafted so early.

That's not to say LMJ can't be a decent NFL change of pace back, but who are you going to sit? Gore is the obvious #1, Kendall Hunter has shown more than LMJ as the #2 guy, and Dixon fits as a situational short-yardage back and works on special teams. Who sits to make room for LMJ? I'm sorry, but I think the coaches have the RB situation handled pretty well; they can't control who Baalke drafts for them.

I feel sorry for the lil homie, he deserves to be out there compare to bums like Kyle Williams & Marlon Moore
TB likely lost Martin for the year...wonder what they'd give for James?

TB WR Mike Williams for James and a 3rd or 4th rounder?
While I personally feel LaMJ has alot of talent and he is going to have a good career, I am so tired of his little nit picky antics. It makes him look so bad, his little twitter fits and always talking to everyone else looking for re-enforcement. Ive grown tired of him, hes starting to be a Brandon Jacobs. You never hear about him posting, working hard to be better, grinding every day, its always they dont play me, i dont know why, im not insurance, retweeting other peoples quotes about himself. Its real tiring. Oct 29 cant come fast enough for me. I hope he has a lights out career because i just know he can. But first the light has to come on, you get on the field by being better than the other guy. Its the nature of the NFL. He is not better than the other guys. Period
