Picture a double tight end set with Alex Boone of Bear Pascoe as the other blocking TE opposite VD. You have Gore, Coffee pounding the ball for the first half of the game. When the D is tired, you put in Sheets, and kaboom, long run, after long run.
When the D stacks the box, VD, Pascoe, Bruce, Morgan etc. can make them pay, pay pay.
I want to see time of possession in the Niners favor all season, and wins with a double digit margin of victory over the oppenents.
Is this realistic, I say YES!!!
i like how youre just assuming 4 guys that have proven NOTHING in the NFL (Coffee, Sheets, Pascoe, Boone) will just step in and be these high caliber runners and blockers. besides looking good at camp and decent in a preseason game, what on earth leads you to believe that Glen Coffee and Kory Sheets will even stick in the NFL??
all the sudden theyre Derrick Ward and Ahmad Bradshaw? come on.
its like because Frank Gore panned out to be a star, now every RB we have will follow suit. remember how long this whole board was madly in love with "M-Rob"?
Robinson is a terrible RB who happens to excel at special teams, which is the only reason hes still on the roster. but everyone was calling him the next elite goalline back...
sometimes the homer-ism on this board is so bad...
right now we dont even know if Glen Coffee will even be any better than the guy he replaced, DeShaun Foster.
