It's not like the Niners have had a lot else going for them. Maybe it will mean a few less 2 yard runs up the gut and four yard pass completions on third and eight. I would be okay with that; at least it will be more interesting.

He will get alot of snaps guaranteed. Texans put up points and we dont have one receiver that a defense respects.
Maybe if they force the ball to him, it will open up running lanes for Gore, and opportunities for both Davis and Morgan. If he actually gets those short hitches or slants, then opposing DBs can't stack the box as much.
