Kendall Hunter is an absolute G, but you already knew that.
What you didn't know is that he's going to be Frank Gores long term replacement, or i think he should be at least..
Everyone wants a power running back. Sure those are great, AP, Marshawn Lynch, hell yeah. Lets get one.
But that's kind of a small box to think in. I'm pretty sure there is other types of running backs who can handle being a feature back. Maybe someone a little smaller, a little more shifty, someone a little more shady mccoy, or Kendall Hunter.
Last season he was coming off injury, so it makes sense his reps didn't increase. He beat out Lamichael James, a lot of people think that isn't saying much but LMJ hasn't done a horrible job, he just hasn't qualified to be a starter, and we're all butt hurt. He has actually seemed very decent all together.
Long story short Kendall Hunter's 4.6 YPA is actually pretty impressive, and i'd like to see where he can take it. Marshawn only averaged about 4 yards per carry his first 5 seasons, 3 of them under 600 yards.
I think Kendall has proven he is reliable enough to be a viable starting option, and yet every single person over looks him and can't wait to see hyde, and lattimore.
I guess i just don't see why we're counting out the most proven option.
mark my words, if Kendall doesn't start, when he hits FA he's gone and starting for someone else. I think he deserves it.
