I just rewatched the GB game last night and that dump off to Gore was such a nice touch throw.

I will kinda miss Alex's ability to dump it off, if I have a knock on Kaep, it's that he never looks to dump it off. While Alex always seemed to be looking to dump it off.

I'm not saying it doesn't happen with Kaep, I'm just saying it's not his strong suit. Don't get me wrong, I would trade a boatload of Alex Smiths for one Kaep!

i know what you mean, I was just saying we may see alot of stuff , like dump off pass plays to our good running backs this year we did not see last year
I was ecstatic when we picked LMJ as a "situational" pick. I thot for sure we would use him like Saints used to use Reggie Bush. Dump offs in the backfield and then let the D try and tackle him. I still think that is how LMJ should be used, plus being in the slot at times. That obviously didn't happen. As for hunter, I love his running, both between tackles and he can bust it wide. He is more of a slasher runner, but can grind it too. He is the perfect back to give Frank a blow, and doesn't really change the running style that much. I have wondered what the D would do if we came out with frank on one side and Hunter on the other. It would certainly make them uncertain as to who was getting the ball. But, we need more WRs these days so that won't happen. Frank is still the man, but i don't think we lose much if anything if hunter is in. I love our RB situation. We basically are 3 deep at starters at RB, but LMJ can add so much more elsewhere.

RB by committee... 50/30/20 Gore/Hunter/James in 2013.

40/30/30 Hunter/Lattimore/James in 2014. Trade Hunter at end of year.

50/30/20 Lattimore/James/Rookie in 2015.

Really think that committee will be the way to go. I think in the future we will rarely extend running backs. Will either trade or release at the end of their rookie deals and constantly phase in rookies to keep committee revolving with cheap parts.
I don't think Hunter is a long term answer. The best potential back on the team is Lattimore, and he probably won't even see the field this season. Long term I think it's Lattimore that's the #1 back that will take the torch from Gore.
Man Hunter is exciting to watch. I really hate to ponder a future without Frank Gore...I cringe at the thought, but I really do believe in Kendall as the next one.

I just love how low key and hard working he is. On the field he reminds me of a smaller Garrison Hearst, even talks like him.

With him, LMJ continuing to grow as that "flex" back, and Lattimore on the horizon, man are we set at RB or what.

Bobbie Dix too. Bobbie Dix forever!
