In Sunday's official Alex Smith thread, there was a lot of discussion about the value of Moran Norris to the 49ers. I suggested a poll and at least one person seemed to like the idea. I don't have a strong opinion myself, but here's what bignerd had to say (I hope he doesn't mind my quoting him):
I see instant improvement with Norris off the field. He dropped a touchdown off a fake lead block, he failed to lead block on a potential touchdown and he failed to gain one yard for 1st down when they handed him the ball on a play that looked like a lead block.
All three plays were apart of the same package/look to take advantage of a defense concentrating on stopping Gore and all three were costly failures.
