This is great. A new generation of Niners fans that don't appreciate an abundance of talent... Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter, LaMichael James... oh and Anthony Dixon. Some how people on this forum are suggesting that Kendall Hunter is an after thought and should be let go/released/trades/cut/waived/etc.? Really? Thomas Clayton and Maurice Hicks on line 1 LOL next season we will have the most talented backfield in the league by far!
Wow that just some crazy talk...
You can never have enough talent, you dont throw away a solidly producing, low paid athelete because you have another one...you use them both.
Yeah..I can hear the Alex calls already...but QB is different, you can only really have one of those, and they are seldom affordable in bunches unless your name is Gruden.
BOTH Kyle Williams & Kendall Hunter will be on the roster next year
Hunter is getting to the point in his career, where other teams will start looking at him as their every down back once he is a free agent , Hunter and James will both combine to pick up the slack when Gore retires, we'll still have a strong backfield, unlike when Watters left , and Loville was suddenly our every down back
Kyle will be back , if he comes back healthy, I expect him and Kap to resume developing their chemistry, like the long pass against the bears when Kap hit Williams in stride
If Hunter comes back strong he'll be a big part of the 49er offense. He's stronger than James, they both offer a similar skill set. Hunter at this stage seems more capable of the heavy lifting of a full time load. Williams has shown determination after the Championship game and he'll have another uphill battle to secure a roster spot. The wide receiver position will be a priority at draft time.
