LaMichael James was a Niner (CUT!)

I think I will draft him as well, in my Madden 13 online franchise fantasy draft!

Yeah that's what I've been arguing. Kendall also doesn't have to be an every down back with a guy like LJ to take some of the load though. People are too used to us having a bell cow every down back like Gore who has been so versatile. Get hunter to gain 5 or 10 pounds of muscle this off season and he'll be perfect because of his shorter height.

LJ could be a lot like a westbrook type(in his prime) or a sproles, while hunter has a body more like Ray rice or if he gained a bit more leg muscle maybe a MJD.
So do we envision a long-term 1-2 punch between Hunter and James? Or was this a pure BPA/roster competition pick? It's a bit crowded in the backfield...
Harbaugh is gaga for this dude.

A guy running steamrolling you over and over and over and over and over again... has an impact on you.

That sounds reasonable to me. I think the key point that you hit on is that we're transitioning away from being one of the few teams lucky enough to have a premier running back and joining the rest of the league in platoon country. Nothing wrong with that.

That being the case, I'd hesitate to pigeon hole either of them too soon. Let them develop into their respective roles.
im pretty sure when Gore cant play anymore its gonna be a two back system with LJ and Hunter burning people up

They must be pretty disappointed with Gore last year and the off season. It appears he is slowly being phased out! If this doesnt light a fire he could be on his way out.

Based on? Using that logic I guess we gave up on Crabtree too.

You do realize he was 6th in the league last year, right?

Luck. And inflated by 3 or 4 good games.

Gore can definitely still play. Not sure that his body can hold up through the whole season though. He needs help.
