Gore has been the best player on crappy teams...
Looking at the history of the 49ers I don't even want to think about frank gore lead teams.
Glad the 49ers had him...hate that the team wasted his youth, but the guy is number 3 maybe 4 in my era of 49er running backs.
Guys like watters and Craig had to be accounted for in the running game and really had to be watched in the passing game.
Hearst and gore bring up 3 or 4 depending how I feel and what time of day it is
gore is the king. those other backs had other weapons to take the heat off of them. gore had nothing and faced ridiculous odds for years and still put up great numbers.
