I'd put it more on the failures in execution of the young, developing offense.

So in 5 rushes Mack averaged 4.2 more yards per carry. All other runs he is averaging 2.0 yards per carry. Gore averages 3.0 yards per carry.




Mack had a 24 yard run against the Rams... sounds great but he had 10 carries in that game for a total of 24 yards. 9 rushes zero gain.

In the Tenn game he had a long run of 22 yards His stat line was 2 rushes for 18 yards. So run 2 was a loss of 4.

He has big runs. He he does.... but he loses more yards than most fans realize.

Arizona he had 6 carries for -3 yards and a long of 3.

He is not even close to being able to replace Gore.... in fact if they feel the need to replace Gore they need to sign a FA or draft a starting RB
I did not say he can replace Gore. I thought I was pretty clear in what I stated that is not what I am suggesting. They do different things and are different plays,

But they can use him more than they are and they can use him in different ways than Gore.

But if you want stats :

Those double digit runs are in 59 attempts for Mack and 144 for Gore, so Mack is more than twice as likely to break a run for longer than 10 yards

Mack long run is 35 yards and Gores is 21 yards, big difference.

Pass catching, Gore is 18 for 152 and Mack is 12 for 129, a 6 yards per catch vs. 11 yards per catch.
