Better Call Saul
The thing about the Rams defense is this...they suck. 20 rushes and 81 yards is bad for Gore against the Rams. I know 80 yards on paper looks good, but in the 2nd half he pretty didnt dent the line.But most running backs get alot of their yards on one or 2 carries. I understand what you getting at but Gore still had a good game and wasnt really shutdown.
We should also keep in mind he lost his mother...so that might have played a role.
Alex Smith has no excuses...he was bad. He needs to find Vernon Davis more often.
