Nope. Gore has been my favorite Niner ever since he's been here, but he needs to have a reduced role. Split between Westbrook, Dixon and Gore, with Gore getting 40% of the reps, Westbrook getting 40%, and Dixon at 20%.
I really wanna see an offense that keeps the defense and spreads the ball around to literally everyone.
I was watching the Packers game yesterday. I loved how their offense works. You obviously have the studs Jenning and Driver on the outsides, but you also use Jones, the TE, run the ball with Starks and I saw them pass it to their FB Kuhn a bunch of times.
Pass first to set up the run and then use Gore and Westbrook to punish the D when they begin to drop to cover. The days of running Gore into a stacked box D are over...please! The Stanford power running game at least equaled the D with blockers, they did not rely on 5 on 8 blocking schemes...oh, I forgot, VD, 6 on 8.
I really like Westbrook as a change of pace to Gore.
Not sure that Gore should be the focal point of the offense anymore, especially after the hip injury. Don't know how he will be, coming back from it. We should be open to drafting another running back if a good one is available in the second or third.
He was more than the focal point. Remember the cow bell... ? We pounded him into the 9-10 men defensive fronts with only a handful of predictable inside running plays. We never really developed a consistent passing attack to give defense something more to worry about.
