De facto 49ers G.M. Trent Baalke recently has said that the Niners might try a three-headed monster at tailback. The team's current workhorse, Frank Gore, isn't a fan.
"Personally I wouldn't like it," Gore said of the concept, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.
Whether Gore likes it, of course, doesn't matter. The Saints won a Super Bowl with three tailbacks, and the NFL remains a copycat league.
Besides, it makes sense. The approach tends to keep players healthy, and it can extend careers.
It also keeps players from becoming superstars and commanding huge contracts, which explains why Gore doesn't like it.
