The 49ers’ not-so-subtle move last week to an emphasis on the passing game was a decision that played well with most of the offense.
Tight ends Vernon Davis and Delanie Walker were certainly on board, as were wide receivers Michael Crabtree and Josh Morgan.
And, clearly, quarterback Alex Smith had no qualms with lining up in the shotgun formation for 25 of the 49ers’ 38 plays in the first half against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
But running back Frank Gore might not have been so keen about the sudden shift in offensive philosophy. And coach Mike Singletary spoke with him about it.
