I disagree with your first part. I could see Kendall Hunter as a feature RB. Granted hes not as good as Gore but its not like its going to be easy to find someone who is. I think Hunter & LMJ would be a decent 1-2 punch. Kendall Hunter hasn't looked as good but I think that is in part to the type of plays Roman calls for Hunter. Hunter gets a lot of pitches and sweeps to the outside which typically end up either being very good or very bad.
And I think lattimore can be better than Hunter. The player im not excited about is LMJ. Think if he wasn't so well known for his college career niner fans would think differently of him.
Finally, I just cant see the team cutting Gore, even if it makes the most football/business sense to do so. Thoughts?
