Looking forward to seeing James...hey, he could be a bust, but it would be nice to actually see him touch the field for a few games before that judgement is made. Same for Jenkins.
OL had a bad day and possible James wouldn't have done anything, but I still think it was a mistake by HarBaalke to not have him active and get him at least 3-4 touches. Rams were bringing the heat, and what's a staple play to mitigate strong rush/blitz? The screen, tailor-made for LMJ by getting him the ball in space.
Frank Gore, first 3 carries for 34 yds, then his next 18 rushes picked up 20 yds. I think some speed outside the tackles was sorely missed.
In this day and age of football, very odd that the TOP TWO picks of a team's draft wouldn't even have been activated for a game this far into the season. They would have been inactive entire season if not for injuries to Hunter and Williams...and even then, it's still no gurantee they will see any playing time this season.
