LaMichael James was a Niner (CUT!)

I don't understand people's fixation with trading for players... it rarely happens in the offseason, and almost never happens during the regular season. When's the last time we saw a trade like the Colts-Browns deal happen during the season? It's too difficult to trade for players during the season because it takes an entire offseason—and sometimes even longer—to learn and understand the playbook/schemes. And depending on position, like getting another WR, they'd have to gain some sort of chemistry with a QB, which takes time.

We aren't trading anyone, and we aren't trading for anyone either.

You don't have to tell me I know how rare they are. This year has been a fluke. I know this isn't the NBA. They rarely happen and it's really hard to find someone now to trade with where the money makes sense and both teams are happy. I said I don't see him being traded. That being said they could put it out there and see what they get offered but I'm sure the value won't be there draft pick wise and player wise as well. I think he's worth more than we would get so I see him staying. Also, one problem with putting him out there is the media is so quick on that and once a player is rumored to have been shopped it never ends well. Usually means it's over because hard to mend the relationship. I'd rather that Roman learn how to use our players better.

Not the fault of LMJ. But this whole offense is out of whack.
We talk about something all the time on one of the teams I serve on. It's for a church, but the principle still applies. We had too many people on our staff that had a say, or that had some kind of authority...it made our meetings extremely difficult because we could never get anything done. Too many voices, too many people wanting a piece of the pie.

Right now, I think a problem is we have too many talented people that play the same role instead of people who have different strengths. James is better than kendall hunter, hes faster, quicker but I think hunter has had more opportunites. When lattimore is good to go next year, we will have an embarrassment of riches at running back. Someone will have to go..it will be absolutely destruction to keep all those guys when you can't keep them all happy...Keep Gore, Lattimore, and one of the other backs. I say keep james, and trade hunter and dixon...fill theirs spots with specialized return guy or something else.

James definately showed explosion and quickness last night neither of the other guys. have.

I see the game a bit differently. It looks to me like Hunter has the most explosion and hits the hole extremely fast. He also doesn't fumble. I'd rather see more KH than more LMJ.

James better than Hunter?
Absolutely not.

James has been a disappointment.
This speed? Really hasn't shown it much.

Hunter is better than James in Greg Roman's offense.

Fair enough.
For the position they play, RB, Hunter is better IMO, regardless of scheme.

In open space, James may be more of a home run threat.
Running the ball, Hunter is the better back.

But, if Hunter gets the ball in open space, I don't see him getting caught, either.
Whomever is better, I would like to see Frank Gore spelled more often. Keep him fresher for the duration of the season.

Just not at the goal line. Boobie Dixon is hurting my fantasy football stats with Gore.

1. thanks to retard roman in the first three games, gore should be fresh for the rest of the year as he hardly had any work. oh and hunter is the better overall running back and is more of a fixture long term with our team as compared to james in my opinion
2.beach is funny. I will say every time i see dixon get short yardage we need or the score on short yardage close to the end zone,, i just get very angry about why roman never gave him a chance in the super bowl

We all see it...but Harbalke doesn't
