49ers Release Running Back LaMichael James

Coach Jim Harbaugh announced the move Monday, a day after his team’s 28-17 win at Dallas. James has sought a greater role in the running game, but he had just two carries for no yards against the Cowboys on Sunday.

49ers Should Strongly Consider Cutting Kyle Williams

After his struggles in the return game Sunday, Kyle Williams should be one of the several roster cuts San Francisco is going to have to make as they welcome back several players. It’s not that Williams has been abysmal, but there is no denying the fact that he is taking up valuable room on a talented team that needs as many open roster spots as they can get.

Kicking Game Is No Longer 49ers Achilles Heel

While the 49ers have had arguably the best punter in the game the past few seasons, the same can’t be said for their kicking game. Last year Special teams play hurt San Francisco during the regular season and again in Super Bowl. So far in 2013, the 49ers have shored up this weakness, and continue to strengthen their argument as the most complete team in the league.

Analysis: 49ers Must Commit To Running Game

It makes sense for the 49ers offense to make some changes after replacing Alex Smith, this not yet. Colin Kaepernick is a completely different player with a different skill set, but with questions surrounding the passing game, the running game, for now, is still the team’s bread and butter. With a full stable of backs, the coaches need to commit to the run, and worry about the passing game when they get back all their pieces.

Pregame Injuries Won’t Affect Smash Mouth NFC Match-Up Between 49ers And Seahawks

It’s only Week 2, and as to be expected injuries are not going to determine the outcome of the game between the 49ers and Seahawks. While Seattle might be shorthanded in the secondary they still have plenty of bodies ready to go, and the winner of this game will be the team that plays better, not the one that is healthier going into the game.

49ers Injury Report Doesn’t Tell The Whole Story

At first glance it seems that the Packers and 49ers will both be at full strength for the match up Sunday. However, San Francisco will be without several players and will need to hold the fort until they get back their full roster.

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.

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.
