Sadly we can't ignore RB any longer. We can't just say "we don't need that position." The way people have for years and years on the WZ. Frank Gore has a major injury history in both college and pros. And he has taken one heck of a pounding over the years. A hip fracture no matter how minor they want to call it is not a little matter. It's serious and guys don't always recover from that comepletely.
Face it we are in complete rebuild mode...

~ Pass Rush
That's what we need. We are NOT CLOSE...
But we have not been ignoring the position.
Thomas Clayton, Glenn Coffee, Dixon in the draft off the top of my head...bringing in Foster, Westbrook, yada yada yada....its not like we have been ignoring that position. Yeah we havent used high picks....didnt need to....with us having Gore.
