I'd just like to point out that the only reason we were able to beat SF and tie with them last year was because in both games, Steven Jackson played an integral role and was the difference maker. Isaiah Pead or Daryl Richardson couldn't do what Jackson did. Not even close.
Anyone remember that 3rd and 14 play against SF where Sjax got the 1st down for us? We were down and behind at that point. Without that play, the Rams punt the ball, and we lose.
Anyway, I'm not here to chastise you if you were one of the people that wanted Daryl Richardson to get more carries than Steven Jackson last year at any point or didn't sorely miss Jackson when he left. Some of you were bold enough to say that it was better for the team when Sjax left (you were clearly wrong). Whatever.
This thread is about the Thursday Night game against SF. No way we win without a run game. It's also not going to happen with Daryl Richardson and Isaiah Pead. I've never been a fan of this RBBC crap. I want a workhorse again.
Time to draft a RB early next year!
