Behind SF49ers & the Seahawks. I don't agree with the Seahawks, but it's arguable, so I'll go with it.

Some will argue that Ben Tate is good enough to start for another NFL team. While that may be true, he certainly regressed in 2012 touching the ball just 76 times as opposed to 188 the year before. The good news for Tate, heís just 24 and hasnít even entered the prime of his career yet. Heading into 2013, Tate could easily revert back to his 2011 numbers as the Texans look to lessen Fosterís workload.

The list was intended as a Top RB Corps list, but if anything, San Fran's and Seattle's running game is only better than ours because of their mobile QBs. If it's just by RB depth, I still take Foster and Tate over what both those teams have.

But just having Kaepernick and Wilson under center for potential bootlegs, or option plays make their run game even tougher to stop.

I agree with Tdot; having a QB that's a real threat to run and run effectively gives SF and Seattle an edge we cannot match.

Plus SF's O-line is ranked near the top of the league (it didn't hurt that during those years of suckage they stocked up on 1st, 2nd, & 3rd rd O-linemen). Having all those top picks up front cannot help but boost your running attack. ...unless they sucked at drafting. They didn't.

Three different articles all have SF's line ranked right behind the one that protects Tom Brady and makes whodat RBs look like studs.
