LaMichael James was a Niner (CUT!)

we'll get a 7th for him. Hardly worth it. Would rather keep him around. I don't get what this offense has against using a player to his abilities. You get LMJ on some screens or out in space, he can do some major damage.

You would have to look for a 2nd or 3rd or 4th read for that.....

or just bring back alex smith. RB"s are always his 1st read.
Brandin Cooks
The 49ers have been spoiled by the excellent blocking skills of Gore combined with his running ability. James isnt trusted to maintain Gore's blocking ability in my opinion. Its a shame the 49ers haven't tried to use his skill set better but this staff isnt going to use him, so maybe a trade is best for all parties.

Last time LMJ got out in space, he fumbled the ball in the SB.

He would do fantastic in New Orleans for sure. They may be a suitor given they lost Sproles.

I think if the Niners play a more 'spread' offense with more WR on the field formations, it would be to James skill set. Kinda like what the Saints were doing with Sproles. But that's not the Niners offense. We bunch 'em up and do run formation most of the time. You put Sproles in a Niners offense, he wouldn't be the Sproles we know from the Saints

No question about it!

Its too bad b/c I feel CK and many of the offensive players we have would be better off served in a spread-like offense. Oh well.
Best all round if he goes.

He's obviously not going to get the play time he wants, I suspect it is the blocking issue, and he takes to twitter in a passive agressive fashion to complain. Best to get what we can and give him a fresh start.
While I would hate to see him go, it makes sense especially with Lattimore healthy and ready to contribute.
They should only trade him if they are actually going to get something valuable in return. I doubt he's worth anything at this point though so I wouldn't get rid of him right now. I'd at least go into the preseason with him. Let him compete with other guys and possibly increase his value with some good performances. Then if he still hasn't done anything or if he's still being a b***h and complaining, part ways. I would just hold out a little longer and try to get more in return at least.


Really the problem has been the lack of opportunity and creativity provided by Roman. James could be a solid utility player. I know he's frustrated, but at the same time you have to keep your mouth shut publicly and you can't be going and complaining on Twitter like a selfish little baby.

DVR'd the SB..and finally watched it last week. it was the first time i watched the broadcast. (at the Game).

While watching with a sane viewing approach, We had a lot of momentum right before that LMJ Fumble and i believe that was the spark to the gasoline fire.

Fk LMJ !
