Plus with Mario back our WR group will be better.

our Wr group is not very good looking for next year. Moss gone, Ginn (sucks) gone, Williams ACL, Manningham ACL LCL + lots of money may not be back, AJ Jenkins well at this point stinks. That leave on good WR Crabtree.

I can agree with that but I just mean that I like Mario and he will be back and I believe in Baalkes drafting enough to have faith AJ will come through. I also think we draft one in the first two or three rounds plus either keep Moss or add another vet
Boobie Dixon is going to be fighting to keep a spot on the roster again next year. That said... he's been money this year on ST and when called on for short yardage.
Don't forget Jewel Hampton! and who ever we draft next season, Frank is aging, simple as that I suspect that 10-15 carries will be his share of the load, and it will continue to decrease after that, it seems that we will let Gore grow old and fade away in a her uniform, rather than see him play elsewhere. Frank is setting "all time" records, that is what happens at the end of careers, not the beginning. Frank remains a weapon, because of his diminished role, and until we draft a guy who forces him to the bench, Frank will get his touches, however few that becomes.

I think La'Mike can and will become a slot recover/running back/returner. Making Ted Ginn, and possibly Kyle Williams unnecessary, this will free up a roster spot, so next season we could see Frank, of Hunter in the backfield, with Miller, and La'Mike in the slot, running flysweep!

I hope he makes it next year... He has won me over this year, I'm liking the position he fills as back up and ST player...

I laugh at the notion that LMJ is better than Hunter, do u guys forget what Hunter did b4 he got hurt? The guy is an everydown back in waiting. He will take over as the guy when Gore leaves. LMJ is very good but he's never going to be a killer up the middle, Hunter can do both.

I agree. People have very short memories. It seems like Kendall Hunter never loses yardage and picks up huge chunks most of the time he touches the ball. If we do retain Roman as our OC, it's going to be interesting to see how he uses all three in the game. Hunter/Gore/James + Crabtree/Davis split out wide.

probably the same peeps that said Hunter would end up being the new MJD b4 he got hurt lol
We need to have LMJ running wheel routes. Get him going ful speed out of the backfield on a linebacker?!?!?!?! Come on!
