Kendall Hunter is Gor'es replacement. This is Gore's last ride 2013 then he'll ride of into the Sunset. Anyone else notice in the Super Bowl on the Final drive when Gore ran off that 32 yard run that he asked to come out of the game?? I wish we woulda kept him in there and playcationed passed to VD or Delanie since Crabs was doubled on the 1st down play
He is going to follow in Jim Brown and Reggie Sanders footsteps and retire at 30?
I bet he doesn't.
Gore, Hunter, then James. I think truly that Hunter and James are easily swapped for one another without much difference. I hope we run 3 RBs next season. No reason to bench James just because we got Hunter back especially when James is starting to show signs of being great.
I dont think its truely a 1,2,3 anymore. Its by down, distance, formation etc...
You pick the play you want to run and that back goes in the game. Gore is power and between the tackles, LMJ is speed and getting to the edge, Hunter is a hybrid of the two, and Dixon is short yardage. You will have to change it up now and then to avoid being predictable....but I dont think there will be a clear starter and backups situation any longer.
