Garner was a great stopgap pickup to cover for Hearst going down.
BTW: I would rank Hearst, Craig, and Watters ahead of Gore....mainly because they were more complete players and all we better receivers than Gore. Catching the ball is the most mediocre part of Gore's game.
The thing that made Hearst great was how he finished runs...in 1998 he had 5 TD runs of 70 yds or more. You rarely saw that from Gore, even in his prime. The guy broke long runs, but many times he ran out gas and got run down.
And Hearst will always have a special place in heart with one of the greatest TDs in 49er history (96 yard OT run against the Jets).
