Almost half the ypc. With the SAME offensive line.
Gore is our most valuable offensive player. If he goes down with an injury, which gets more likely with each passing year, the season is OVER. Nobody will respect the run.
Forget KR/PR. The 49ers NEED a talented backup RB to split carries with Gore to keep him fresh. The return duties just happen to fill a huge need as well, that might net some nice extra yards each game.
Here's hoping the 49ers pick up a solid free agent, which isn't likely, or a nice draft pick like CJSpiller.
