I think the Niners can emulate the Giants running attack.

Uhhh yea I don't think so. the Giants run blocking is 10X better than the 49er run blocking. Plus they have some really talented backs.
no way in hell. Bring Jacobs to the bay and then we'll talk.

man we can have a better running attack than the Giants!

This
We don't have the power rushing attack that they have. We don't have the different style of running back either.

I posted this article on the webzone back when the 49ers signed Sheets as an UDFA... looks like others out there agree....

I have to admit, I like the thought

The Giants had three good runners that wore down defenses, potentially the Niners can impose their will on the defenses by wearing them down with three RB's.

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.

I'll side with SD's running attack a few seasons ago as the standard

-LT (Gore)
-Turner (Coffee)
-Sproles (Sheets)

It;s funny their respective skill sets match more evenly than the Giants from last year

While this is a more accurate comparision than the Giants it's still a terrible comparision.
Call me crazy but I don't wanna emulate or compare to any teams running attack. I wanna set our own standard.

i really think our 3 RB's could be even more special. id say its pretty fair to predict:

-Emmitt Smith (Gore)
-Walter Payton (Coffee)
-Jim Brown (Sheets)
They'll have to because pass protection in its current incarnation SUCKS.

Coffee and Sheets are unproven just as Turner and Sproles once were, who knows what the future holds? Consider the initial expectations when we drafted Gore.

While its a a stretch to consider we'll led the league in rushing (as the Giants did), it's pretty harsh to suggest the 49ers don't have a chance at emulating an attack of that type.

Anyhow, Sheets has got to make the team first ...good luck kid
