LaMichael James was a Niner (CUT!)

I'll take 6th rounder for LMJ, lol
Worst. Draft. Ever.
I was hype when they drafted him. Like I can't wait to see him in open space. Then they proceed to never give him the ball.

Sounds like he's got his panties all in a bunch.

He hasn't gotten many opportunities either, though.

just when he was starting to impress me....... he drops the rock in the superbowl....................
If the coaches dont intend on using James in a Sproles - like roll, then get rid of him. We all thought when we drafted him in 2nd round that we would see him lined up in back field, in the slot, on screens, returning kicks/punts etc. now he is strictly a return man. I have to think were wasting his talents.

PPL on here say we need a quick, shifty slot WR, especially vs. an aggressive big secondary of Seattle. Well James was on the sidelines. You telling me he couldnt catch a bubble screen, or run a quick slant in the slot etc. Instead we run him to the right on a play designed for him to possibly throw it back to the QB lol.

Sometimes i wonder how our team wins as many games as we do.

Yep. Only a matter of time until the Niners send him packing like his buddy Brandon Jacobs.

To the say the kid has done nothing is pretty harsh and inaccurate. Statistically, he's one of the better KRs and PRs in the league, so where he's gotten his opportunities, he's done well compared to others across the league. He was also a 1st down machine in 2011 (relatively speaking, of course). 8 of his 27 carries (30%) went for 1st downs and all 3 of his receptions in 2012 went for 1st downs too. Not to mention that critical kickoff return against New England that possibly saved the game for us when the Pats had ALL the momentum.

When he's gotten chances, he's produced more often than not and the stats prove it. The fact that he hasn't gotten enough chances and why that's the case is another matter. If I were him, I'd rather go to another team too if this one isn't going to utilize me more. If your job is to play football, and you're paid according to how good you are/can be, I'd be pissed too if I didn't get enough touches. Hell, if the team doesn't feel I'm good enough to play, then get rid of me! Let me prove it somewhere else!

all of this is cute and fine. he probably would do better with more chances. but strictly speaking on what teams would offer you, the guy isnt going to fetch you s**t. buy low, sell high. he hasnt done anything to warrant getting a mid round draft pick (3rd, 4th or 5th). when i said he hasnt done s**t, thats what i was meaning.

He was overdrafted, he should have been a 4th or 5th rounder as a KR/PR specialist not a RB.

I don't really blame him. He was a second round pick. RBs already have a limited shelf life in the NFL and he's basically wasting away on our roster. At the end of the day, this is business and he has a very small window to earn big bucks. I'd want to be traded too.

I'm not siding with him, but I understand where he is coming from.
