We've all seen it before. The #1 player gets hurt, his backup comes in and dominates. The former #1 becomes #2 and never regains his spot. Will this be the situation this season? specifically sunday? Its already been said that Hunter and gore will likely split the carries evenly, and if hunter gets 6+ yards per carry to franks 2.5, how can harbaugh ignore that? I know this is all hypothetical, but its happened all too often, and i think it will happen on sunday.
Gore is having a hard time with his ankle recovery, and hunter is HUNGRY. I personally think both of them will have a good day against Phillys 30th ranked run defense, but i think hunter will take it a few steps further than gore and just have a really nice showing.
