I think Gore will need to get to another SB or even get a SB win in order to get him in. What say you. I mean Roger Craig still is not in so....
Solid career, but can't see him getting in. A couple thousand yard seasons, a superbowl or two and MAYBE he gets in
He gets in for sure with 12000 yards. He is a top three RB of his generation. He gets a SB win, and he is a lock, especially if he some how managed to get an MVP nod in the process. Not many RB's coming into todays NFL are ever gonna even come close to sniffing 10,000 yards. He passes Faulk, which i think he will since he still has a few more years on the tires, he gets in without a SB.
Regardless of what some people around here think, Gore will still be the best RB on the roster next season. I love Lattimore, but he has a lot to prove before he takes over as the #1 of this backfield.
