As many fans of the game know there are NFL shows that try and predict the outcome of every game and also the breakout performer of the weekend, for example Sportscenter has Bold Predictions. Here’s something new I decided to bring for you readers on Niner Noise.
This is the first edition of my Gold Mining Game Changer of the weekend against the Carolina Panthers. Every week I’ll give you my prediction of which Gold Miner (also known as a player on the Niners) will change the outcome of each game for the rest of the season.
As my first prediction, I select Lamichael James, to have a spectacular game returning punts and kickoffs for the special teams. He’s been unhappy for a number of weeks and Sunday will be a chance to show the coaching staff that he still belongs in red and gold.
When a player is unhappy with their status on the team you know he has some anger built up inside and is just waiting for the right time to unleash it all. The right time for Lamichael is in the open field where he could use his speed to get the San Francisco 49ers good field position or even mess around and score a touchdown.
With that being said, Lamichael James will finish the game with an average of 35 yards per kick return and also return a punt for a touchdown to ignite the 49ers special teams and will get the Stick rockin’.
