There's a lot of hyperbole going around. Gore is old, yes, and I think his carries need to be throttled back, but let's not be ridiculous.
Player A: 1,128 rushing yards, 4.1 YPC, 9 TD
Player B: 1,257 rushing yards, 4.2 YPC, 12 TD
Player A is Frank Gore. Player B is Marshawn Lynch. Pretty comparable numbers, huh?
"The reports of [Gore's] death have been greatly exaggerated."
Gore, in the final year of his contract as a 250 carry guy next year is fine. He's an asset, even. He doesn't have much left in the tank, but it's definitely not empty. The thing about Gore is, despite his loss of speed/acceleration, he still has elite patience and vision to find holes/wait for them to develop.
