I tend to agree.
The questions were posed......"Can we beat the Rams without Gore?"------yes.
"Can we compete for a Superbowl without Gore?"--------probably not.
Let Jacobs handle the Rams. I would not risk potential injury to Gore against a team we should handle rather easily at home.
Bears, Pats, ect.= different story.
Seems far fetch for them to sit starters this early, however I do feel like if the 49ers go up by 2-3 TDs then they should start sitting some of the vets, including Alex Smith, so we can see Kaep do his thing!
This is a division game, and we should not be sitting starters until the 4th qtr on Sunday, if at all. More important game than the Bears IMO. Let's take it one week at a time. I look at it as "This game is the most important game of the season" mentality. No reason to look ahead at what we can't control today. Is it good to project/plan ahead? Of course, but you play to win the game in front of you, so lettuce go out and dominate.
