Moran Norris

Let's hope the Moran of '06 shows up, otherwise it could be Brit or even MRob 'cause I don't think Mr Keester, or whatever his name is, is the answer.

its personal issues its none of our business

Whoa. Back of there hoss. No one said they had to reveal what the personal issues are, but that doesn't preclude us from speculating, esp when it impacts the team. Otherwise, why talk about half the issues that are brought up on this board? For example, it's also none of our business what the 9'ers offerred Crabtree or what he'll end up getting, but we've had about 2 billion posts on or around the subject! Whew!

Norris was a detroit Lion in 08.

But you understand the argument being made.

Norris was a monster lead blocker in 2006 season, his first wth 9ers.

Norris was a sucky lead blocker in 2007 season, his second with 9ers.

Norris was on a 0-16 Lions team last season.

Like I already said.... which Norris are we getting in the 2009 season?

Lets see here. We had a real offensive coordinator in 06.
We had hostler in 07 and everyone sucked
in 08 well it was the lions and one man can't make a team win.


With that I say we get 06 Morran Norris. Now that wasn't hard now was it. Just a little logical thinking can go a long way

Dude, weez talk'en about BLOCKING here. Norris only good year BLOCKING was 2006.

What does a offensive coordinator have to do with a fullbacks job of BLOCKING?

I think its pretty obvious the point being made about the 2007 season is that the ENTIRE offense sucked under Hostler, not just Moran Norris.

Gore looked great in 2006, pretty bad in 2007, and didn't exactly light it up under Martz last year. Do you harbor the same concerns about which Gore we are going to get? Or do you recognize how an offense that struggles overall may make its players appear to struggle individually?

Brit keeps it up and it's gonna be Miller time come game day.
Having read that Lorenzo Neals days seem behind him, I will still need to see Norris reprove himself.

Man, why couldn't M. Rob gain 25 pounds. That would have been scary for the defense.

In hypothetical land, Patrick Willis sure would be fun to watch at FB.

FB? He would keep stealing the ball from the QB and run it himself or throw for a perfect 70 yard pass...





...to himself.

And he'd be out in front blocking fools to the ground at the same time.

I sure hope the personal issues are behind him at this point, so he can come out and start developing a feel for game time and take some aggression out on the "Gangsta's" this weekend.

Hey! I said REprove himself. 2006 was so 3 years ago.

On Gore's first td run, Norris led him through the hole and picked off two Seahawks. He got a seal block on the first guy and then screened off the second defender as Frank accelerated into the secondary.

Norris had a career game yesterday.

For sure. The 49ers need to continue to utlilize Norris in the offense. If anything it will force teams to put a man on him.
