He needs more touches. The past couple of weeks he looked more explosive than gore. Not a knock on gore but more props to LMJ

Yesterday especially. I think Gore, like most vets, need that bye week. But LMJ is got to be fresh seeing as he hasnt played the first half of the year. I like what I am seeing...and I am glad, I was worried when KH went down.
He played well yesterday, no doubt. On the downside Frank Gore looked sluggish out there all day.
give him the ball more! Even for a little dude, he finishes run's going forward.
Really hope they can find more ways and packages to get him in space more so he can really use that speed. Hope for a big playoffs from him.

Yep, Gore needs some rest.

LMJ is quite a player, probably still a bit of a step down from where Hunter was because Hunter knew our schemes better but still a playmaker that we need. I love LMJ in the return game, he has been a shoe lace tackle away from breaking off a TD return.

Once LMJ gets some room, he is dangerous. Like Gore said, he needs more patience sometimes in the backfield to let the space get created.
We definitley have a nice pipeline going of current and future backs..Even Dixon looked solid in limited touches yesterday and was a nice piece on special teams. One more bigger body in the upcomming draft would be nice to see. But I am comfortable with Hunter, LMJ, Dixon and Hampton in the post Gore world if the right kid isnt there when we want him.
My oh my , but won't it be interesting next camp when both Hunter and James are healthy?! I like them both, but still give the edge to Hunter. Nice problem to have. I do believe however, that neither brings to the table what Gore does and we still need an heir apparent. Either a power back to complement the Hunter/James duo, or a complete back like Gore (yeah, I know, not many like Gore around). Like I said, interesting.

This. I'd like to see some screens but I feel like Roman spilled coffee all over the pages in his playbook that held any particular screen plays.
This guy really stepped up when we needed him in Hunter's shoes. -Without that 2nd dimensional back our offense would suffer.
lol and people were panicking about him in preseason
all of you guys saying we need to draft a bigger back are forgetting that jewel hampton is almost the same size as frank gore with similar skills set already.

Yes but he was UDFA for a reason and that reason was multiple serious knee injuries. It never hurts to add another day 3 body to a competition for short yardage back with Hampton and Dixon.

HA! Similar skill sets already, he says. He might be the same size, but I think you're far off to think that a PS squad player has around the same skills as Frank at the moment.
i mean in terms of running style. come on!
if that's the case, I have a similar skill set to Patrick WIllis. Put me in coach!
