I think jenkins will see more time ahead of james. we still got dixon and jacobs and while I understand your logic of the way he runs. it just sounds like james is still a work in progress and there is no way in gods green earth JH will put james back there to return kics, if he is activated. we have a crazy coach but i do not think he is that crazy. if you are right and i am wrong, i got no problem with it!. will not be the first time i was wrong or jumped to judgement
IMO, LaMichael James will see at least some time replacing Hunter. His game is more like Hunter's, unlike Jacobs'. And during preseason LMJ was working well with Colin on option plays.
I'm not promoting LMJ for returner. But his skills at outside runs and quick hitters bring what Hunter had. Jacobs obviously doesn't. Also to the poster that called option plays "gimmicky," Harbaugh has many of the college-style plays as part of usual fare for the offense. Can LMJ pass block as well as Hunter? I doubt he'll be asked to do it any more than they asked it of Hunter.
