If Dixon learns all his blitz pickup and other responsibilities, then he's going to be a very good backup to Gore. I think Westbrook will add another dimension to the backfield if he's healthy, too. A nice set of RBs for now and the future.

Yup, Big Dix was doing the Barlow shuffle instead of hitting the hole hard. Some of those losses and 1 yarders could have been extended to 3 yards if he would have simply hit the hole with some authority.
San Francisco 49ers RB Anthony Dixon(notes) -- The only rookie back with more rushing yards than Bell through two games (151 to Bell's 132), Dixon was pushed into the spotlight with the abrupt retirement of second-year back Glen Coffee(notes). Dixon, whom the 49ers took in the sixth round out of Mississippi State, fits the team's profile perfectly -- Mike Singletary loves smashmouth football, and at 6-foot-1 and 233 pounds, Dixon is the right fit. He reminds some of former San Francisco back Kevan Barlow(notes).
Dixon showed alot of promise tonite. He could be the future. I love gore but hes got good years left .. its good to have dixon learning as much as he can as fast as he can because it only takes 1 snap to end ur season
