Will Gore become the full time back in SF?

Postby drsteuss » Wed Sep 28, 2005 9:43 am

I picked up Gore this week in hopes that Nolan will bench Barlow for good down the line. Any 9ers fans out there with opinions on Gore and the SF RB situation?

i think it's only a matter of time. but when that time comes...who knows. gore was more involved last week...but only had 8 touches. he ran the ball well though, and that's what the 9ers need.

I grabbed Gore with the last pick of my draft with the same hope/prediction.

Barlow didn't look bad last week (take away his one long run and his stats aren't anything special) but Gore looked better. Every time he got the ball he looked to be running harder and hitting holes better.

I think Gore could be solid producer in that offense given the chance.

you can never take away a players long run, because it happens all the time. more than likely quite a few players every week will get a long run that increases their stats. I've come to accept long runs as normality when considering how an RB is doing.

Given that, I too think it is only a matter of time before Barlow takes a seat.

Umm that's a little too much personal information. :-B
As long as barlow has some semblence of looking like he might be a productive RB gore will stay seated. This is situation is much like that in KC albeit not nearly as productive nor explosive.

Therein lies the rub. It's not like Barlow is producing much of anything these days. Gore's playing time has continued to increase with each game. Coincidence? I think not. Even though Barlow recommitted himself this offseason, he still is tenative about hitting holes and would prefer to dance rather than bowl someone over.

I would look for Gore to continue to take time away from Barlow. This season though, I'd be surprised if he swung anything more than a 50/50ish type split. Think back to the Hearst/Barlow days, only less productive.

Did any of you see the game? Gore,the fragile back he is,went limping off in the fourth quarter and didn't return, to my satisfaction ;-D
