I disagree, when the Niners started rotating in the second half, that is when the qb pressures and sacks started happening. When Dobbs, Tukuafua and Haggans gave the starters a rest, the starters came in with fresh legs and got to the qb.
Not to underestimate the future competition, but when the team is winning by more than 3 TD's, rotating in the back ups ( to give the starters a rest and give the back ups valuable game experience) is a must to prepare for a push in December and January.
Gore- Should be relieved by Hunter/jacobs/James
Sopoage- RJF and Ian Williams
Ray McDonald- Tukuafu
Justin Smith- Dobbs
Aldong Smith- Haggans
Willis- Larry Grant
Alex Smith- Colin Kaepernick
VD- Delanie Walker/Celek
Notice I do not have them substituting OL, as they are gelled. Also no subbing for WR's, as they have depth if the starters go down. Also they rotate in WR';s all game anyways.
I think rotating is the key to the niners making a run in January. They need Gore/Justin Smith/Ray McDonald/ Sopoaga/ Willis/ Aldon Smith- all with fresh legs.
