You guys saying that Gore has declined are nuts. He has shown no signs of that. Seattle has a great defense and the came with a game plan to shut down our running game. They executed it well and we failed to counter.
That said, he's getting older and won't be able to play forever. We have this discussion every off-season and he keeps coming back strong.
My prediction is that Gore will start in 2014. The real competition will be for the backup RB spot between Kendall Hunter and Lattimore. James should stick as a change of pace back and return specialist.
Gore plays out his contract, retires, and Lattimore starts in 2015. Book it
