MT: Marcus Lattimore Puts on Jersey

Posted by Taylor Price on May 20, 2013 – 11:30 AM

Fans might have to wait until 2014 to see Marcus Lattimore playing in a 49ers uniform, but they can get an idea of what San Francisco’s fourth-round draft pick looks like in his No. 38 uniform.

It’s not known if the former South Carolina product will be healthy in time for the 2013 season, but the popular running back put on his red 49ers uniform over the weekend at the 2013 NFL Rookie Premiere event in Los Angeles.

A photo of Lattimore and fellow fourth-round selection Quinton Patton was posted on Instagram by Patton, the rookie wide receiver out of Louisiana Tech.

Patton seemed to be having a great time at the photos hoot event as evidenced by this video appearance.

Lattimore, too, had a good time. He even did an impersonation of his new coach, Jim Harbaugh.

Panini America offered photos from the event.

ProPlayersInsiders.com shared photos, tight end Vance McDonald was in attendance, too.

Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee detailed Ricardo Lockette’s progress.

49ers.com caught up with former 49ers quarterback Trent Dilfer to hear about the team’s current singal-caller, Colin Kaepernick.

    Happy for the new stadium but disappointed when I see the new proposals for the Minnesota Vikings and Atlanta Stadium

    It makes Levi’s stadium look like a high school stadium…. Thats all we can get for $1.2 billion ? I guess a stadium like that in california would be $ 3 billion

    Hopefully its ready by june/ july 2014. I would like to see the Major League Soccer All Star game played there and the annual SJ Earthquakes vs La galaxy game played there instead of stanford stadium….

    Also looking forward to see the US national team play there

    Lattimore puts on jersey? come on, that’s really groping for news, isn’t it ? Man, how about rehab update on Justin and Aldon Smith ? Not to mention Kendall and Kyle and Manningham . . . we want to hear more progress reports as we near training camp , thank you ! 9ers are “the bomb” ! What an outstanding free agency and what a draft . . . looks very promising , congrats Jed, Trent and JH and all the staff !

    BTW, i believe there is one piece still missing – Charles Woodson – let’s see what he’s got left in the tank and get him signed to complement our secondary; not an every down guy but still one who leads by example and an on-field teacher and mentor for the likes of Culliver, Brown and the young and improving secondary ! Two months and change ’till training camp and preseason ! Let’s go Niners !!!

    Both Atlanta and Minnesota are planning indoor stadiums…much different environment than Santa Clara. What you see in the indoor designs is a lot of glitz…but what really matters is the field and the fan experience. Our stadium will have the best Silicon Valley can offer…I’d much rather have substance than glitz, but that’s just me.

    the roster is maxed they will have to drop someone and it appears they are not ready to do that …oakland looks like thye are trying hard for him i would love to see what he has left …but the team looks like they are trying to keep the core young and fast multi role personel …….if he does not sign with the raiders …he will get on this team just later rather than now

    “next ur gonna say he throws check downs all the way down the feild dumping of to roger over the middle taking what the defense gives a little at a time till he finds taylor in the back of the end zone”

    You’ve got the wrong guy. I’ve never been critical of check-down throws. It’s not a check-down if you haven’t read the defense. Good quarterbacks read defenses and throw to the check-down guy if it makes the most sense to do so. Bad quarterbacks force throws into coverage because they don’t have the skill to read defenses properly.

    “Check-down” is used as an insult in the same manner that “game manager” is, but the best quarterbacks are also excellent game managers and throw check-downs when it is the right throw to make.

    Can’t wait to see what happens with our depth when some of the players we drafted hurt begin to get healthy. Many players that were projected to go a lot higher than where we got them. It is all the talent we have on our team right now and all the picks we had that enabled them to do that!!

    BTW…They are moving the draft back to the middle of May next year to keep football in the news longer and not have this down period.

    ya good qb’s use check downs when needed not all the time….the real good qb’s throw into tight coverage not afraid to try unlike alex he would rather take a sack or throw a 3 yard check down on 3rd and 7….instead of trying to get the first down that’s not a good qb or a good game manager…..it’s a qb that has no confidence……this league is about putting points on the borad…..i hope kc likes their game manager….thier punter will be busy as will the fg kicker….

  22. By phatalerror on May 21, 2013 | Reply

    “it’s a qb that has no confidence”

    Let’s rewrite this, and then it will be truthful:

    ‘It’s a quarterback that has no confidence in his receivers.’

    Smith had confidence in Vernon Davis during the 2011 playoffs. Crabtree on the other hand ran poor routes, was dropping throws, and didn’t get much separation. But suggesting that Smith had no confidence in himself is ridiculous. His receiver corps sucked, and many times when he gave them the opportunity to prove themselves (the jump ball to Braylon Edwards at the end of the first half of the Ravens game in 2011 is one example), they let him down.

    By the way, you forgot that last year Smith was slightly better at completing throws for first downs on third down than Kaepernick was. I’m certain that’s not because Smith was always throwing check-downs well behind the first down marker.

    “i hope kc likes their game manager….thier punter will be busy as will the fg kicker….”

    In Fantasy Football this year, I’m targeting Phil Dawson. I think his numbers this next year will exceed David Akers’ from 2011.

    ‘It’s a quarterback that has no confidence in his receivers.’

    Let’s rewrite this, and then it will be truthful:

    Smith had to be tapped on the shoulders before playing while Harbaugh fed him confidence with encouraging words to build his confidence. And the offense was less open with a “play-it-safe” type more conservative offense & this was obvious.

    Now if the above is ones idea of confidence in a QB then I must only laugh with this obvious emotional bias and self denial.

    Thanks for the continuous laughter and the smoke you blowing is going up only one rectum and that would be your own FATAL-ERROR.

    Why all of the irrelevant comments about Harbaugh banging on Smith’s pads?

    The bottom line is that Smith won in the post season with an inferior receiver corps. You can’t paint that any other way. Smith had an injured Crabtree with a case of the drops, and Kyle Williams in a WR2 role. Kaepernick had a healthy Crabtree and Randy Moss.

    It’s not your opinion that is offensive. It’s the willful double-standard of it that is. If I am in your eyes clinging to a biased opinion, why the need to continue responding to me? It only makes me look like I have a point. And when you follow it up with irrelevant comments and personal insults, it makes me look right, too. It also makes you look like an idiot.

  31. By phatalerror on May 21, 2013 | Reply

    Next, someone will suggest that Harbaugh started out every game telling Kaepernick, “You suck!” in order to get him fired up, and that somehow that testifies to Kaepernick’s superior mental toughness.

    Positively irrelevant.

    i always enjoy what eric right has to say
    what ill say is if kap does “come down to earth” this year it might likely be do to defenses preparing better and staying gap aware at all times
    and if he doesnt “come down to earth this year” its likely because we have great supporting cast” additonally the film on kap doesnt compare to the exp he gained and dont forget the superior coaching he will receive this year as well

    kaep will be fine even amazing this year i bet,he still learning yes at times he pitched the ball backwards vs the rams and gave away a td, that was ugly he looked like a scared chicken with bad instincts, he wont do that again, that maybe is even just a bad call right there, overall id have taken aaron rogers instead of alex smith and then we wouldnt be having this conversation right now,,,lol jk wait not kiding i would have taken rodgers,but qb’s under 25 to lead ur team for the next 10 years……its KAEPERNICK

    “what ill say is if kap does “come down to earth” this year it might likely be do to defenses preparing better and staying gap aware at all times”

    And this is my chief point of concern regarding Kaepernick that I never had with Smith as a veteran: Defenses could play as well as they ought to, and the 49ers had a good chance at winning when Smith was quarterbacking. I might put it this way: If defenses make mistakes against Kaepernick, they pay a heavier price than they did against Smith. On the other hand, if defenses play solid, disciplined football, you’d get more production out of Smith than you would out of Kaepernick.

    Again, this all comes down to whether or not Kaepernick can learn the skills needed to quarterback effectively from within the pocket. If he can, you get the best of both worlds.

    “if kap does “come down to earth” this year…”

    By the way, ‘coming down to earth’ means what exactly? Aaron Rodgers in his first year as a starter was good for an average of 2 TD’s a week, and Colin Kaepernick was in that neighborhood, although doing that from a run-first offense (as opposed to Rodgers, who has had to carry that offense). In 2011, Rodgers accounted for an average of 3 TD’s a week during the regular season, reminiscent of Tom Brady’s 2007 season. If that is the high-water mark for quarterbacks in general (particularly quarterbacks in throwing offenses), isn’t Kaepernick already ‘on earth’?

    Cam Newton was good for 35 touchdowns in 2011. The Panthers went 6-10. So let’s put individual stats where they belong and look at a different number (note: defensive scores are not deducted from the following totals):

    2007 Patriots: 589 PF
    2011 Packers: 560 PF
    1998 Vikings: 556 PF
    2011 Saints: 547 PF
    2000 Rams: 540 PF
    2012 49ers: 421 PF (projected by factoring for the nine games Kaepernick didn’t start based on his seven regular season starts)

    This projection would give the 2012 49ers the 66th highest PF registered since the 1996 season, not a shabby number by any means. Cam Newton’s 2011 team put up 406 points, but his 2012 team put up only 357 points. Interestingly, the 2012 team won one more game than the 2011 team, and although Newton’s individual stats dipped, he made fewer serious mistakes. So I could really care less about Kaepernick’s individual stats. Fantasy stat lines don’t translate directly to wins. If Kaepernick can control the ball, contribute to a well-rounded offense, and not make game-losing mistakes, that means a lot more than whether he’s putting up records. After all, NONE of those teams I listed above won the Super Bowl that year, and many didn’t even make it to the Super Bowl.

    “Dude…Alex severly lacked confidence and we all saw it in front of our very eyes with the shoulder taps and the “you can do it” body language.”

    2010: Singletary/Smith’s 49ers vs. Seahawks: 40-21
    2011: Harbaugh/Smith’s 49ers vs. Seahawks: 33-17
    2011: Harbaugh/Smith’s 49ers @ Seahawks: 19-17
    2012: Harbaugh/Smith’s 49ers vs. Seahawks: 13-6
    2012: Harbaugh/Kaepernick’s 49ers @ Seahawks: 13-42

    Maybe Kaepernick just needed some shoulder taps and the “you can do it” body language. All I see is a quarterback that won big games, and another quarterback that is said to have a lot of confidence but loses big divisional matchups.

    Yes, your point is totally irrelevant.

    Except that Kaepernick’s team didn’t win the Super Bowl, and Kaepernick’s offense put up six points in the first half.

    Therefore, I’ve already won. Doesn’t it feel the slightest bit empty to declare yourself the winner of a debate where the past proves you wrong? Who is the delusional one?

    FATAL ERROR. Spoken like a true politician. Your statement that you won because the 49ers lost a SB has nothing to do with who is the better QB. In order for that to be true would mean Alex would have won it all. Are you saying you can prove that or know alternate universes? It does prove what we always knew and that is you were rooting against the 49ers so you could make a statement that does does not in anyway prove Alex is better-which is the point. And you lost because the QB you wanted got traded to another team thereby proving a very knowleagable coach made the correct choice! Now that is working on facts-not the alternate, “what-if”, hypotheticals. HAHAHAHAHAHA! You are such a loser!

    That’s a pretty blatant double-standard: When it comes to my opinion that Alex Smith is a better quarterback than Colin Kaepernick, you require me to present historical evidence of his success, but when it comes to your opinion that Colin Kaepernick is a better quarterback than Alex Smith, you hitch your opinion to Jim Harbaugh’s choice to retain Kaepernick and use that as a basis for evaluating Kaepernick’s future success.

    In this universe, not every personnel decision made by even the best coaches are the best decisions. It’s more than a little bit presumptuous to crown Colin Kaepernick King of the League on the basis of Harbaugh’s choice. Why? Because Colin Kaepernick’s team didn’t win the Super Bowl.

    Where did I admit you were right????? Are you on drugs?

    I am confused. The above history Blahblah copied hurts him more than anybody else. So BlahBlah is pronouncing himself right about Alex being a better QB than Kaepernick because he copied and pasted real positive 49er fans wanting us to win a SB before the big game. What in the world does that have to do with which QB is better? All the above posts prove is while many were hoping, wanting and being postive fans he was hating on the team before their biggest day so he can say he was right. It proves its about him 1st not about the team winning. Even though they lost, I am confused how he was right. How does that prove Alex would have even gotten there? Dave I don’t think BlahBlah is on drugs, I just think he is retarted. LOL

    Morning Tailgate: Jan. 9

    “how come phatal doesnt just come out and say the 49rers are going to lose?”

    Because I don’t necessarily believe they will lose. However, the trends do suggest that if the 49ers win, it won’t be on the back of their running game.

    Morning Tailgate: Jan. 10

    phatalerror:
    • Even if the 49ers win today, or even next week, my position has always been: The move to Kaepernick was inappropriate on the principle that Alex Smith had earned the job for this year, and Smith did nothing to warrant losing that job. He is quite possibly the best performing quarterback ever to lose his place on the depth chart to a backup. He was a top quarterback in the league at many measures when he was demoted.

    I just dont see how a knowledgeable fan can compare these two players and think we have a better opportunity to win a championship with Alex.

    Its funny how much time BlahBlah is spending doing research on things on prove diddly. Nothing you will pull up…and I mean nothing will prove Alex is better or would have won the SB.

    Its hilarious that you spending all that time and continue to fire blanks!

    Thanks for the laughs and the all out effort which just proves to us your lack of life. There are a lot of historical data out there that would make you feel silly but we are not as pathetic as you to search through countless morning tailgates. LOL

    All you doing is diggging yourself a deeper whole of showing us how sad your life is and how you are really reaching. I have friends that laugh at you bro. Keep em coming cuz we loving the laughs!

    You’re trying to shift the position I actually took in regard to Kaepernick to one that puts you in a favorable light. My position was that Smith was a better quarterback than Kaepernick, and nothing between the beginning of the post-season and the end of it changed anything in regard to that opinion. People argued that Kaepernick gave the 49ers the best chance to win the Super Bowl. That was supposedly Harbaugh’s idea as well.

    It’s impossible to say that Smith’s offense would have absolutely won a game Kaepernick’s didn’t, but what we can say is that for losing, Kaepernick lost pretty darn badly (up until the lights got turned back on, but few 49ers can admit that affected the game without also admitting that Kaepernick wasn’t ready to play against a team like the Ravens). Down by 15 points before the end of the half? The 49ers never finished a first half that far behind during all of 2012. That is why they lost.

    Whether the 49ers had a better shot with Smith for winning the Super Bowl or not can neither be proven nor disproven, so there is nothing to be right or wrong about there (except that Smith couldn’t have done worse). However, all of those who turned their backs on Smith and jumped on the Kaeperwagon certainly didn’t see their aspirations regarding a sixth Super Bowl title fulfilled.

    Kaepernick wasn’t a complete quarterback in time for the Super Bowl. His lack at the position was highlighted again and again that game. All that’s left for the Kaepologists to hang onto is the non-comeback that never would have happened had not the lights gone out.

    So Smith is now a Chief, and the 49ers have kept Kaepernick. And if Kaepernick can become half the quarterback the Kaepologists think he already was, it will be the AFC Champion blown out of the water by the end of the first half in the next Super Bowl. I guess we’ll get there when we get there.

    The Crabtree injury is unfortunate. At least the 49ers have a legitimate (and better) WR1 in Boldin, and perhaps A.J. Jenkins and one of the rookies can progress to fill the void. Williams and Manningham will be back too.

    But what do they say?: ‘The great quarterbacks make something out of nothing at the receiver position.’ Kaepologists should have nothing to worry about.

    Meanwhile, I will be targeting Anquan Boldin as a sixth round talent in Fantasy Football leagues. He is the receiver Kaepernick will throw to this year. Again. And again. And again.

    Is this Phatalerror serious? We have Crabtree injured and he is still whining about Alex and throwing digs at Colin? Can someone punch these geek? People need to ignore him because he just wants the last word and is not saying anything that means anything.

    “We have Crabtree injured and he is still whining about Alex and throwing digs at Colin?”

    Don’t even get me started on how long it took Crabtree to be anything but hurt for the 49ers. His career could be defined as:

    1. Holdout, Unprepared
    2. Injured
    3. Injured, Prima Donna
    4. Healthy and Worth Something (Thanks to Randy Moss)
    5. Injured

    Crabtree was the 49ers best “wide receiver” option in 2012, but he was hardly a top receiver. Meanwhile, we now have Anquan Boldin, who has barely lost a step, and is far more effective when competing with the defense. The 49ers lost a receiver, but they didn’t lose their best one, and they didn’t lose one that was likely to be on their roster in 2015. This injury officially makes Crabtree a bust.
