I will believe it when I see it. Let's see what will happens this year first. If Alex plays seven more years for the niners he will have to avg at least 3300 yards or 3700 yards over six years. Remember Alex is in his what seventh year already? One good hit and he can suffer a shoulder or back injury. It supposedly already has screwed up his mechanics once. Especially since he hasn't learned to throw on the run instead of stopping and trying to setup and throw after taking off to avoid the sack.
As for Rice he is untouchable. Gore will be the man, but I am hoping that we win a SB before he retires as it will help possibly validate him for the Hall. If he gets to 10K he should get it not questions asked since he did it with such a lame duck team and coaches.
