too much on a young rookie. Not sure he'd would be serviceable that early in pass protection. If he is anything like his highlight video I saw, we've got a very good RB
gore wasnt bad as a rookie splitting time with tip toe barlow. i could see lattimore getting the lion's share of the carries if he looks great in preseason and pushes for playing time. i think hunter could also push for time. i would hate to see frank go but the niners are about to have to make some serious decisions because we have some key FAs coming up and some major rookie deals that need extending. i hope gores back next year but even if he isnt i think we look good at RB going forward. i just threw up a little just thinking of gore not being a niner...
Gore wasn't to blame for his lack of yardage yesterday...there were no holes...but it's time to start easing in a younger guy who can get to the edge and take it all the way when he gets into the open field. As much as I love Gore he is just not as able to take off unless the D take bad angles. If they can keep Gore happy and sub in Lattimore...great!
I would be hesitant to put expectations on Lattimore. He completely cut his whole knee up. We saw with Manningham how hard and long it takes to come back. I'll remain hopeful but any production we get from Marcus will be fortuitous.
