LaMichael James was a Niner (CUT!)

And then as soon as I say that, he runs for a huge loss

I'd argue that for all his slippery moves, he doesn't advance the ball much. Its all about north and south.

All those slippery moves are when he's stopped at the line for no gain and uses his elusiveness to gain something out of nothing

That's just what I've seen.

That's a good point.
what does this guy add to the team?

i'm not really comfortable w/ him being a punt returner, i'd rather have kyle williams back there.

if they don't use him in space and get him lined up at wr spreads etc i don't see what he really does, he can't run between the tackles he dances way too much.

hope they are hiding some great packages w/ LMJ lined up in spread formations to utilize his strength in space
He's so fun to watch I'm glad we got em

is he? dancing behind the line of scrimmage and not having any power to run between the tackles is fun to watch?

they need to use him in space..i'm hopeful that is the plan and they aren't showing it til the season

Agreed. As it stands, he's not even close to being worth a 2nd, imo. The 2012 draft was a colossal bust and I don't need two more seasons to know it.

I feel him being traded and jewel hampton becomes #3. LMJ just dont seem to have it unless it's the read option. in which case damn near every RB is good if the QB makes the correct read
Someone should make a cut up of all his runs behind the 1st string offensive line. He's running we'll.

so hampoton and dixon and others are not running behind the 1st string oline and look much better than LMJ so imagine them behind the 1st string line as well
Looked good to me tonight.
He established himself as the number three. Now I'm interested to see what he can do as more of a pass catcher.
dude makes me paranoid catching punts. He's so jittery and always falling over when he does it.

When Lmj is running with the 2nd team lines he's has faced 1st team defenses.
we're stacked at RB. It's gonna be a good year for all 3.
He has the skills to be a lot better than he is. Too much east/west and dancing. Bad vision. He has me concerned. I hate some of the things about how he runs. I also love some of the ability.
are you guys watching the same LMJ im watching? i mean seriously.. i see him doing nothing but good things with what hes going against. hes gonna be with us for a long time.
