If Crabtree and Kaepernick can pull off another outstanding outing in the game of their lives, they’ll take the podium together again for an entertaining back and forth of compliments and good-natured ribbing.
The Super Bowl is suppose to be the best two teams in the NFL battling for football supremacy as well as bragging rights. While there may be questions as to if the two best teams from each conference are playing, there is no denying the talented filling both rosters. In a game with so many Pro Bowlers on the field, it’s often an unlikely hero that can help swing the outcome of the game in their team’s favor. There are several players who can make a name for themselves on Super Bowl Sunday, but the player most likely to do so, is LaMichael James.
LaMichael James has transformed himself from a rookie spectator forced to watch the first three months of the season to a key contributor to a Super Bowl team in a matter of weeks for the San Francisco 49ers.
If I had to pick one guy most likely to surprise at the Super Bowl, it would be LaMichael James.
The story of the professional athlete overcoming a troubled past to make it to the pros is not uncommon. What makes LaMichael James story so unique is that he has been on himself for most of his life, and even after reaching the pinnacle of football, his past will continue to remind him how lucky he is.
Rookie quarterback LaMichael James may get his first chance to play Sunday when the 49ers meet the Dolphins at Candlestick.
When the 49ers drafted running back LaMichael James, both he and the team probably didn’t figure that he would not play through the first 12 weeks of the season. There is still no ETA on when he will play, but with an injury to Kendall Hunter, the team figures to turn to the rookie who can offer the team the same things that Hunter did to help make the offense so effective.
49ers running back Brandon Jacobs posted advice on Twitter with a reference to never working “in a place where you hate your boss so much, you should always be happy at work.” The hash tag: “YouLiveAndYouLearn.”
Brandon Jacobs balanced himself on crutches walking through the San Francisco 49ers locker room. LaMichael James strolled through with a backpack and a smile.
Frank Gore may stand alone among all San Francisco 49ers running backs but he’s not done working.
