There seems to be a mixed opinion on Brian Westbrook as a 49er. I like having Westbrook back there now. We could have a good 3 headed attack back there with Gore, BW, and the rookie Dixon. All 3 catch the ball well out out the backfield! It's just another weapon to help Alex Smith.
As 49ers point out, Westbrook and Gore become NFL's top tandem since 2005 in terms of career yards from scrimmage, with a combined 14,438! I don't understand why people don't like this move? Westbrook will compliment Frank Gore. BW won't be a feature running back. They can also help keep eachother healthy. BW also understands pass blocking schemes well (Better than Anthony Dixon). It makes sense to me.
I understand the concern about his history of concussions too, but that's the chance you take!
