Harbaugh on a LaMichael James sighting in December: "Yes, I think that's a real possibility."

knowing Jim.....he will probably be on the bench again
if he is, that tells me all i need to know about what the niner brass really thinks about james,, and if he does set, then they deserve all the flaming in the world for f**king up the draft. drafting for next year is dumb. were our coaches so f**king arrogant they did not think we could have injuries and maybe just maybe, they should have drafted some guys who were a little more nfl ready. despite what many think, Jh does not walk on water.

I dont buy the next year excuse.....I think they might actually be bad.

My next mock will be addressing a lot of positions and "fixing" what we did this year.
if James isn't active this week, Harbaugh needs to get slapped around.

James and Jenkings have a golden opportunity to grab themselves a better spot on the roster.

they are not being given the opportunity by the coach to play so what is going on there? we have a crying need for a speed back and they put in jacobs. what does that mean in regards to what the coaches think of james?? i can not believe jenkins can not make more plays as a wide out than ginn. with mario hurt we have a crying need for a fast wide out. if jenkins does not play again sunday, what does that mean in regards to what the coaches think of him?

Ginn is supposed to be a WR and a returner. Ginn has more experience at his position and we really don't know what spot they were grooming Jenkings for. Until Williams got hurt, it was understandable to go with the experience of Ginn. If Jenkings bumps Ginn down the depth chart there is no reason for Ginn to have a roster spot. Jacobs was signed as a short yardage specialists. I have a feeling the numbers game are affecting their ability to get playing time. James and Jenkings special teams contribution or lack of contribution probably is whats holding their playing time back as position players. If they are activated and suited up, who doesn't get suited up? James may take longer to play because of the pass pro assignment worries.

I hope to see them both play. I hope they are putting in the extra work to give confidence in the coaches decision. Ginn is very replaceable as a WR. Somebody needs to fill the void left by hunter.
I think its interesting to see how this has played out. I don't know that this shows much of anything. I think that we basically had a two year plan on these guys and we are looking to play them when we feel they are ready. There could also be a financial motivation for not getting these guys on the field much right now. we've done a good job of hiding our depth, letting guys walk and locking young dudes to long contracts before they break out. I think we certainly were looking to ride it out with Moss and Ginn this year and were hoping these guys would come in for spot roles next year. It's not like they will top the depth chart if they are active. We shall see. Ginn is not exactly a shlebb as a 4th wideout and we also have Jacobs and Dixon to work into the running game. There is also that guy Gore. This will all work out.
SO is Mario expected to miss some time? I honestly think Trent had about as good of a first draft you could have with Aldon, Bruce Miller, Hunter, Culliver.

This last draft though, looks to be a dissapointment if guys can not step in due to injuries, i have seen several WR's playing on teams as rookies making some good contributions. SOme are producing more than all of our Receivers, we need to figure out how to hurt teams with the passing game again, we dont score enoguh TD's, i hope these two young guys could eventually bring some of that, but my fear is that Baalke messed up by letting Jim's over emotional over impulsive self drafting LMJ,j just cause he made Jim's team his son in college.

Its been said that Baalke lets Jim have the second round choice in the draft so far, maybe that changes next year, hope to see AJJ or some of our receivers catching TD's again soon, we need some more fire power.
I cant wait to see what James can do.

I wish that I shared your optimism. I don't think that it works out. Certainly not this year, if the team doesn't get contribution in the playoffs from skill positions. And I refer to home-run capability at WR and RB. Which the first two picks provide on paper.

Ginn is a shlebb. He cannot be relied upon in pressure situations.

I sense that this reluctance to bring up players is more the result of Harbaughs inclination to play the conservative game, circa the '60s. IMO it can get you into the play-offs, but not much further. If he is on board with this thinking and is intending to change this in time for the play-offs (switching to Kaepernick being the first indication), he better get moving. Because so far neither his play-calling or his personnel selection has adjusted to this strategy. It may be that he just doesn't have the necessary offensive expertise in-house at this time. This is not college ball, which is where his experience on the offensive side comes from.

That said, Harbaugh is full of surprises. These next few weeks will be verrry interesting.
Want to see Jenkins and James out there too. What the heck, why not? Don't go half-arsing the experiment-SB-run... go all in.

Maybe Roman is scrambling through game film and coaching manuals to see what plays he can dial up for those guys!
Taylor Price ‏@TaylorPrice49 #49ers RB @LaMichaelJames hasn't been told of increased role just yet but said, "I know I can play."
