unless we took him with the first pick
Franky G..I remember when he was a rookie.. that game agaisnt the colts he broke at least 10 tackles that day.
Gore was head of Portis and McGahee and Miami before his injuries...if he never gets hurt he wouldnt be a 49er though
Imagine there's no Alex...

Imagine there's no hands on the hips...

Imagine all the zoners, shutting the f**k up... oooohhhh hooooo yehhhhh

You might say I'm a poster, *dun, dun dun* but I'm not the only one...

Frank Gore's rushing touchdown was No. 49, which leaves him one rushing touchdown behind Joe Perry and Roger Craig. He is also closing in on Joe Perry for the franchise rushing record when you account for pre-NFL years. He is 93 yards back of Perry for that mark. Not too shabby
he woulda gone first over all that year, alex and a bunch of bums were at the top of that draft

Frank Gore had never had his knee injuries in college. His freshmen year he was averaging more than 9 yards per carry. He had 4.3 speed before his injuries. In my opinion he has some of the greatest vision, if not the greatest vision of all time. He is also one of the best when it comes to patience and squeezing through holes. I believe if he still had that breakaway speed and hadn't gotten injured he would have been a top 5 or even 3 back of all time. He's already the greatest 49ers back ever. Here is to the Inconvenient Truth! What say you?


There is the very real possibility that those injuries made him the man and running back he is today. Why morn what he is not and celebrate, my dear niner brethren, what Frank "the Tank" is?

Kinda agree here...

BTW, he NEVER had 4.3 speed. I've watched almost all of his college highlights when I made a Frank Gore vid awhile back, and he never really had that breakaway speed. He was QUICK and SUDDEN tho. I think the biggest things that made him so good were his vision and patience, and he didn't lose those with the injuries.

He ran a 4.3 prior to his injuries. I remember reading about it. Now, who knows what kind of surface he was running on and how accurate the time was, but he did get timed running a 4.3. Apparently it was a 4.4 prior to the injuries. I still remembering reading a report he ran a 4.3 though, but either way it's still very fast. The point is, prior to his torn acls, he had the ability to breakaway and had really good speed. The analysis on him was that he was viewed as a powerful back for his size who was also a homerun threat and could bounce it to the outside prior to the knee injuries. He lost some of that deep speed after getting injured. Here is an interview if you don't believe he was a 4.4 guy.
