The perfect back to off set Gore would be his identical twin brother. It remains to be seen how successfully Coffee runs over linebackers in the NFL at 210 pounds. I'll be happy if he takes what is there for positive yards and hangs on to the ball. As a rookie, I'd be happy if he was the equal to what Foster did for us last year.
I agree, you can't really peg Gore into any one category - he's pretty fast, but is a bit of a brusier... he can go outside the tackles or stay in between just fine... and he can break for a huge run at any time. The same type of back who can stay fresh and do all of those things as well is a great asset to have. Very excited to hear that play-actions are going to be more utilized this year.
