all i am saying is that i feel like our coaches are having hard time trusting players and they chose the safe route..its great that we are winning!! but look at the broncos and even seattle.. they can put teams away and put that nail on the coffin in early 4th quarter..
we could have and should have put the cardinals away with a touch down by the end of the half!
Broncos / 49ers = Apples / Oranges. TOTALLY different talent package and even more different offensive / defensive philosophies. If the two teams swapped rosters you'd get a totally different story on both sides.
Some teams are built to run up the score. Others are built to take the lead and keep it (us).
As for James, how do you think the D is gonna react when they see him on the field? They know he can't pass block so they know damn well we're not running a pass play with him in the backfield. Unless it's a read option play, the defense KNOWS he's going to carry the ball be it run or screen. Not going to be very effective very often. With Hunter, we can run ANY play we run with Gore.
