SON, THE ONLY THING I TROLL FOR IS FISH. That being said, Gore was not getting the job done and the OL was just as bad, why not change things up for a few plays and bring in DIXON?
If Frank Gore couldn't do anything, there's no way Dixon or even Westbrook would have had any success.
Actually I think they might've done better.
Gore almost never deviates from where the plays are designed to go, so even when there isn't a hole, he'll usually just run into the pile and take whatever yardage is there. Coaches like this because he avoids negative plays by doing so. Basically, Gore turns into a low risk low reward player when he doesn't have any lanes to run through.
From what I've seen of Dixon and Westbrook especially, they are more willing to break away from the play design if nothing is there. One of the main reasons our offense got shut down was because we weren't taking any risks (aka no explosive plays like Jimmy Johnson kept repeating) and became easy to defend.
