Chat Wrap: Lattimore's future

Here are some highlights from our San Francisco 49ers' chat, held Thursday:

Kevin from CT: Bill, with how well Frank Gore is playing and having Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James as the change of pace guys, where do you see Marcus Lattimore fitting in next year. He seems too talented to sit and I don't see him playing special teams.

Bill Williamson: Lattimore will play a lot of he is healthy and regains his stature. They will figure out the rest later.

Jeff from Albuquerque: Does Gore rush for 100 yards this weekend?

BW: Going against the best rush defense in the NFL, but the 49ers will keep at it.

DDmur from Southern Illinois: Was one of the reasons that Mangini was hired is because he will wind up replacing either Roman or Fangio if either gets a head coaching job?

BW: He's a defensive guy. Even though he's on the offensive side, he comes with a defensive perspective.
