"I Told You So!!" Many of the fans here were very critical when I mentioned that Foster can be a featured back if and when the 49ers decide to trade Gore for a franchise QB or a high draft pick.
DeShaun Foster played a decent game. I think if he is given the chance to at least touch the ball 5-10 times a game, things might happen. It also could help Gore by giving him some time to rest during a game. I mean, Foster is not a great RB. But, at least he can give us more than what Robinson can give. The team can use Robinson ala Harry Sydney since Mike was a QB anyway.
The 49ers can follow in the footsteps of the Giants with Jacobs, Ward, and Bradshaw; the Panthers in Williams and Stewart; Titans in White and Johnson, among others. An NFL team can never have enough good RB's in their roster. Remember the Chargers last year and other previous years, with Turner and LT? Besides, Foster fits the teams salary cap quite well (unless he holds out next season for a better contract).
Hopefully Gore can just rest his body for next season. It may also be wise to preserve him from future injuries since the team is not in contention anyway.
