News, notes and reader questions about the San Francisco 49ers

What if Gore goes down?

Question: God forbid that Frank Gore has an injury this season that puts him out. But if it does happen, I don't feel that we have a good back up. Mo Hicks is OK and Michael Robinson is no good if you ask me. Do you see the 49ers adding a quality back up?

- Tabrez, Elk Grove.

Answer: No. The team feels that Hicks is capable in small doses and that Robinson and Thomas Clayton are oozing with potential. Don't forget, last year was Robinson's first at running back. He's a bright guy who's not afraid to hit and be hit. Give him another year before you toss him in the scrap heap.

- Matt Barrows


Matt was born in Blacksburg, Va., and attended the University of Virginia. He graduated in 1995, went to Northwestern for a journalism degree a year later, and got his first job at a South Carolina daily in 1997. He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
