SANTA CLARA — Here’s what Bruce Miller said in the locker room Wednesday afternoon.
MILLER: “(Carlos) has learned so much from Frank already. He’s kind of even picked up a little bit of (Frank’s) running style. With (Carlos) it’s explosive, hits the hole, it’s downhill, he runs great. And Frank is more patient, waiting for his break and you see that with Carlos. He kind of picked that up, so it’s exciting to watch both of those guys run.”
Q: Do you think the offense will face fewer loaded boxes this season?
MILLER: I still think…even in the game (against the Cowboys), we got loaded boxes. But we switched it up and we started going with more spread and doing a little bit more of the read game with Carlos and Frank and it worked great for us. Whatever we have to do each week to be effective and efficient on offense is what we’re going to do. Flexibility. We have to be efficient both ways — stacked boxes, spread them out a little bit more. But if we see lanes we can run in, we’re going to put two and three tight ends in and we’re going to run the football. Mix it up on them. Keep them on their toes.
