I hope we see Lamike in the no-huddle, zone read offense for a drive. The rams will be tripping out with all the looks were giving.

I don't think there's any question that LaMichael has to step up and become the scatback threat that Kendall Hunter had become. The other two RB's on the depth chart ahead of him are plodding earth movers. Nothing against them, mind you, but we already have that in Gore. What we need, and what we had with Kendall, was that dimension of breakaway speed. He was a threat to take it to the house every time he touched the pigskin.

LaMichael is the only other speed option on the roster at this point. I see him getting his touches this Sunday in Saint Louie....

Wut?

Did you just call Gore a "plodding earth mover"?

I love Hunter and am extremely sad that he got hurt, especially considering the severity of the injury, but let's not get things twisted.

Hunter is more like Gore than he is a scat back. He's just a little bit smaller. Both have amazing initial burst and vision hitting the hole, but neither has been breaking 40+ yarders this season. In fact, Hunter's longest run was 26 yards. Gore's is 37 yards.

Both players have the same yards per carry right now at 5.2. They've been making their living on runs in the 5-15 yard range... and they both have a ton of them. Gore gets a first down on 30% of his carries and Hunter does on 25%. Both of those numbers are outstanding.

In fact, as a team, the 49ers are 2nd in first down percentage. They are also #1 in the NFL in yards per carry.

BTW, did you see Hunter run right through Urlacher's tackle along the sideline? He's one powerful runner... does not go down easy.

I miss him already.

I don't know how LMJ is going to look with the first team offense, but I'm excited to find out! Especially considering Baalke's track record so far.

I'm pretty sure he was referring to Dixon and Jacobs

I think we all gotta realize that HarParBaalke know what they are doing. I've included Paraag in the name

Harbaugh said "you know, I'm going to convert a college DE into a FB" and bam. Or, I'm going to convert Boone into a guard. Drafting Aldon. Deciding to let Spikes go and start Bowman. The list goes on.

No way I thought Kaep would be able to play this well so soon. But, once again I'm wrong.

I think the seasoning that he and Jenkins had on the sidelines will pay huge dividends come playoff time.
I'm not excited. I don't know who he is, really. Just some guy we drafted and he was there for depth. Our guys are Gore and Hunter. Now Hunter's down so maybe this rook can show us something, maybe not. Forum posts won't get you playing time, nor will whining and crying to the press. I didn't see Kaep whining and crying in tweets that "the coach hates me" and all this Brandon Jacobs-style crap. Kaep sat, learned, waited and got smarter, stronger, better. Then when it was clear he was better he got the call. I don't see anything like that with this whiny, me-first 2012 draft class. They sound like a bunch of big babies to me. They can ride the pine for another year for all I care.

Not an Oregon fan I take it.
I'm more excited to see AJJ play then Lamike.

The fact that Perrish Cox who was never listed as a return man on the depth chart magically jumps James to be the backup at both PR and KR kind of makes me wonder whats up.

Cox was always going to be the third option. But yes, it is upsetting that LMJ cant top cox in either of those duties.

I HATE Phil Knight buy recruits custom shoes in their Junior HS year U. However, if LMJ can be half the RB he was in college, I would be absolutely ecstatic. Guy played with a broken elbow and put up insane numbers.

Well, LMJ can do other things very well. He's a year to two out from doing what he did at Oregon.

says who? he theoretically could still play
I would like to see him play but I doubt he will see much playing time. I got a feeling Jacobs will get some more snaps but I'm not excited to see his style of running, it has a purpose but just not exciting. James is probably our only back who can out run the secondary to the endzone. I love frank to death but he doesn't out run too many people anymore. (no I'm not saying James should start in front of Frank)
