LaMichael James was a Niner (CUT!)

Though, in a couple of those games, the 49ers had their third string line in against starters. I can't remember which game it was but I remember seeing the entire starting D in for three quarters. I want to say it was the Vikings.

Still didn't show anything in the other games, and what makes it even worse, he ends up injuring himself.

Really don't want to draft another RB. But if James really is garbage, I guess we don't have many options. Wish we kept Dixon around, atleast he wants to be here.

Big Dix is so underrated, good team guy. LMJ is a whiner

His ability to play ST and FB was a great asset. He wasn't a very good RB but overall he did a lot more than James who makes good money to post on twitter.

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.

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

THANK YOU!!!! f**k too much spilled milk flying around the place with no fkn cheerios in the damn bowl. If he was so damn talented he would have made his way into the mix. They gave him the PR & KR duties and what did he do with that................. exactly notta

Dude gets tackled by a shoestring... He's a college player, some players just don't transition well, he's one, time to move on.

agree and he gives me a heart attack when he attempts to catch a punt
Shame on the coaching staff, esp OC and HC for not trying him out as a bailout for kap, or even a target for kap. THAT was what I thot this was all about. Sure LMJ wanted to run between the tackles, but sorry, this is NFL, not college. He is, or should have been used a la Sproles, and jH/roman NEVER used him like that, his very best position to play in NFL. In space the kid is stunningly good. I guess JH and roman just never thot to try him out that way. Oh, that's right, roman is just a run play caller...bs on that. He calls the plays, all of them. He isn't smart enough to have thot of what LMJ may really have excelled at.

Based on that, I am glad he gets to go elsewhere and show roman what he can do...but it won't be running between the tackles.

Might as well ship him off to a team that will use him properly...

i hate roman as much as i love mayo's penis but i am starting to think he is just not that good and again i have no confidence in him to return a punt

you haven't even seen LMJ's penis, so how do you know you won't luv it

i do not want to see his penis. in my opinion the penis of mayo has set the bar in the world of penis envy

Oregon and me have gone over this time and time again since he was drafted. In college he was a between the tackles runner. Very rarely was he used in the manor you are describing. He has never been a great pass catcher, and he has never been used largely in that capacity, even in college.

The comparisons to sproles were never fair, and he was never going to be that player. I stated this over and over since day one. he doesnt have the lateral movement, vision, lower body strength, or body control that sproles has.

most of his best runs in college were runs where he was never even touched, or touched by very little contact and poor tackling technique. Thats not to say he didnt break tackles in college, because he did, but the nfl is a total different beast.

He caught over 50 passes in 3 seasons at Oregon...nothing spectacular, but also not indicative of someone who is useless in the passing game. The few times he was thrown to during his fill-in role in 2012, I believe he picked up 1st downs each time. The point is, and this isn't saying he would be as good as Sproles, but he easily could've been used in that type of role. Sproles makes a living of getting lost in the wash at the LOS where a LB has to try and find him, then goes just a couple yards downfield, catches the pass, and next thing you know it's a 12-yd gain, 1st down. I don't know how anyone--whether "pro" or "anti" LMJ--can try to claim with authority that this is what he can/can't do, when the fact is he's never really been given that chance. Well, okay, we know he's not a great PR, but that's not why he was drafted in the 2nd Round.
I wonder if this was a Balke pick that coach bumped heads over. Would Harbaugh sabotage LMJ to prove a point?
I bet this was a harbaugh pick. I think what happened was Baalke picked AJ Jenkins so then the next round Harbaugh got to pick and he went for LMJ and I hated both picks when they were made and I even hate them worse now. I just don't get how or what attracted Baalke and Harbaugh to AJJ and LMJ?? Theyre both skinny slow wimpy players that wont amount to anything in the NFL and to piss away a 1st and a 2nd is a SHAME

James was Harbaugh's pick, so not sure what point he would be proving. He's said a few times that he wanted him after seeing him tear up Stanford and the Pac 12.
