You think LMJ is pissed, imagine how Lattimore would feel if he was on the 53 man roster right now, cause I don't even think he would be active on gamesdays.
Tank and Dial wouldn't be seeing much PT either, Fangio loves keeping JS and RayMac on the field.
Not sure why JH loves to redshirt rookies but he seems to have trust issues when it comes to playing rooks. He may want them to go through our training program first so that they are in shape to play 49er football. You would think we would draft players that are a bit more ready to play...
Not really sure i agree with the "JH loving to redshirt rookies" comment. Aldon Smith, Culliver, Hunter and Miller all played huge roles their rookie season (not including Colin Jones since his big contributions were on ST and i think we are discussing more traditional roles). We all know about last years draft and lack of production, although LMJ did get a fair amount of pt, albeit due to Hunters injury. Reid is their starting FS this year, McDonald and Lemonier are getting quality time, Patton was getting on the field, and Tank and Dial would most likely be part of the rotation if not for their injuries and will most likely be apart of the rotation when they come back this year.
