LaMichael James was a Niner (CUT!)

James use of the social media irks me.

What I see in his return skill set baffles me.

When it comes to James, I lack any objectivity.

I have less empathy for him than any other player on the team, and my feeling have no concrete basis.
If Coach would have used LMJ as a sproles type back, ie get the ball to him in space, then I would have liked the pick. But no, where is he used? Between tackles, where he likes to run, but just isn't big or good enough to be a solid #1 RB. The fact JH never used LMJ in space says that he just isn't interested in that kind of O...which is his decision. That being the case, not using LMJ in space, the pick at #2 was a bad one. I was completely fooled in that I rejoiced when his name was called. Finally a back to be used like sproles. Unh unh. Never apparently even considered, and hence, we got a RB to run between tackles, who really isn't that kind of NFL back. That kind of back is frank, hunter, dix. So the glad handing and props LMJ got during the draft told me he is on the cusp of getting traded. Just an opinion. But when I hear my HC and GM both sing the praises of a guy we rarely saw...well, you have to believe your lying eyes then.
This little dipsh*t just wont shut up always crying & complaining bout something he's lucky to still be on this team he reminds me of Brandon Jacobs b*tching on Social Media & crying to the Media as well, i hope someone really emerges during training camp as a returner that way we can cut him or trade him before the season starts. Sick of his whining.

Coaching staff dropped the ball with this one
I can't stand him. His fumble in the super bowl killed all of our momentum, and he continues to whine on twitter every few weeks. Just cut the brat already.
I wish thye'd just get rid of him. Every time he catches a punt I swear I'm cringing because he seems to be fumble prone. I mean, did you see his fumble during a punt against Seattle? Not only did he not catch it he got decked and hurt.

Screw that. Some people are entitled and don't want to work for their accolades. LMJ is one of those people. You want to play? Be better than Gore, or Hunter, or Lattimore, or Hyde. Learn to pass block. Learn to be a team player. He's such a whiny little b***h.

Agree. I have no problem with LMJ being frustrated with his small role. He should be. I have a problem with him constantly complaining to the media, and on twitter. His reasoning is he doesn't want to lie. Nobody is asking him to lie. He often whines unprovoked. Just keep that s**t between yourself and the team.

I'll be shocked if he survives camp. We have Gore, Hunter, Lattimore and Hyde. I don't think any of thse guys are going anywhere....
Maybe if he didnt fumble the ball in the superbowl he would have a bigger role now. I doubt the coaching staff has much trust in him.

We have NO idea of how much work he puts in so for you to say that lmj doesn't want to put the work in is bs. He doesnt have to be better then gore to still be able have a positive impact beyond ST. there are other ways to incorporate a rb into the game beyond just running between tackles. Hell, hunter had earned the the staffs trust and still didnt get a resonable amount of touches even if they would be just to spell gore. This teams creativity is limited to run blocking schemes anything else just doesnt carry much value (as determined by the staff in accordance with philosophy) Latt and hyde have more value at this point because they have the size to run in the box even though neither of them have proved anything. Put him on the field and watch him fail if thats all he can do but dont spend a high pick on a player give him only 20 something touches in a season. to say "we didn't have a chance to get deeper into the play book" as a reason as to why the team doesnt try to be more diverse in its approach as a whole is crap, bs.

He is kind of a crybaby but imho the coaching staff still dropped the ball
Is there anyone here that actually like James? I honestly don't hate him at all. And in the limited carries he's gotten, he's shown some good stuff. I was watching his highlights and he is tougher than I realized. I really think he could be better than Hunter (maybe he is?). I can't wait to watch him in the preseason

Underutilized... should just let him prove himself on a team that will use him often. If we do trade him, I hope there will be a clause in his new contract (on new team) that all social media is forbidden by him.
