yes. Exactly as you stated. The Salary Cap Era of the NFL is all timing. You aim for windows of years you can make a Championship run.....anyone who does not fit into the next window of opportunity is expendable.

But, the Niners are not interested in championships, just mediocrity; so they will keep Gore as long as he can help them sell jerseys and help the Niners send 1-3 players to the Pro Bowl each season.

Now what makes you say that? If they traded gore, you might have something. You dont trade away your best player unless you really are looking for mediocracy. he is the teams centerpiece and you build the team around him.

That also means getting another back to help him too.

Congrats, you recognize that Gore is our best offensive player.....So what? It is going to take roughly 15-20 solid starters on this team to be competing for a ring. Solid, not great.

So Gore being a great player really doesn't matter in terms of winning a Championship...because besides him we only have about half a dozen other solid starters. Given we are that far away, one could make a prediction that best case scenario is that we acquire about a dozen more solid starters in the next 3 off-seasons(GODWILLING). Now fastforward, and please try to tell me with a straight face that Gore is still going to be solid starter.

But again, IF all someone cares about is Gore and his numbers while the Niners struggle for a 9-7 NFC West one and done in the playoffs...by all means Gore can lead us to such a achievement.

Gore can be a solid starter in 3 years, if and only if the team can get a second back that is just as capable on his own. He needs help and trading him away can be a great setback. You've seen how ineffectual the offense is without him.

I will say this, to simply trade him away for a first rounder isn't worth it. Multiple picks, sure. IF some idiotic GM offers more than 2 picks for him (a la Ricky Williams, Hershel Walker), then DO IT!. That is too good to pass up.

But Right now, he is our best offensive player. To get rid of him now would be utterly foolish. I understand that you would like to get rid of him so that you can build through the draft but you just can't unless you are sure someone can fill in his role. Who would you sign/draft to replace him? I think it would be better to spell him by getting another good RB. Just look at Minnesota, Carolina, SD, New York Giants, Ravens.

Just throwing a name out there you could get a guy like Beanie Wells if you were looking to go first round replacement. But even if not like that the idea, is that you can replace Gore either in free agency, or in the middle of the draft. Gore himself was only a 3rd round pick afterall.

If you could get a first rounder and some picks in the next years draft you do it. Imagine a draft with Everette Brown and B.J. Raji. Or Taylor Mays and Michael Johnson. Gore has been hurt the last 2 years his durability has got to come up when considering his potential production for the next couple of years. So if you feel you can get a package of picks/players that could outpace his production over the next few years you take it, simple as that.

I'd give him another 2 years with us before i start thinking about trading him. Some people don't realize how valuable he is to this team. There is no reason to trade him right now when he is in his prime.

well then you should just say you would never trade him, because in 2 years...no one will trade for him......kind of the only reason some of us are pondering it now....because we know it is basically now while he has value, or never.

How old will he be in 2 years. He will be 27 and will still have 4-5 great years in him. Edge got a lot of money and many were interested in him at his age. At 27 he will still be in his prime and im sure there will be many teams that would love to have him.
trade Gore? hell f**ken no. What we need is a speed back to compliment Gore's bruising style.
my question is for who/what?
Will people ever learn that this is not a video game?

First of all, Gore's salary is VERY reasonable.
Second, he gives the team chemistry because he is so easy to like as a person, and is a pure teammate.
Third, we don't HAVE Bill Walsh anymore. What the hell would we trade him for? A first-rounder? How the hell would that first-rounder be an upgrade over Gore?

Trading Gore would be like trading your favorite pet, for a newer, slightly younger pet who you probably won't like as much as the first one.

BY was never traded and was always paid well because not only was a he a player, but he was the heart and soul of the defense and one of the leaders of the team.

Even if you get a better "deal" for the traded player, it is not worth it because you will lose the CHEMISTRY and LEADERSHIP that is stupidly almost NEVER accounted for when making a trade.

Gore and Willis make up the CORE LEADERSHIP of our team. THOSE are the players you need to KEEP, because you will NEVER get an equal value from a trade, simply because CHEMISTRY and LEADERSHIP will not be considered when making the trade. Only the raw numbers will be considered. Every other player on our team is trade-able.

The Redskins LOVE wheel'in and deal'in. THEY think this is a video game where you simply insert player "x" into slot "y" and everything will magically work out.

Do you want to become the Redskins?
Hell, most of you probably DO want to be the Redskins. Their owner spends money like its going out of style.

Things that prove spending money does not create EXCELLENCE.
1) Raiders
2) Redskins
3) Microsoft
4) Ben Bernanke

Not a chance. True running backs normally do have a limited shelf life but Gore strikes me as a player that could still produce even with fewer snaps than when he was younger.

At the moment he is still our best offensive weapon and arguably one of the top 5 all purpose backs in the league.

I know some of you die hard Gore fans would say I'm crazy.. And I for one love Frank, but I'm also looking objectively towards the future.. It looks as if we'll be getting another OC next season, setting us back another 2 or 3 years. We have young WR's who will have time to develop and benefit from a new OC.. But Gore doesn't have that long to sit around and wait... 3 More seasons and he will be past his prime.. Would you consider moving him for players or draft picks???

keep him

Yes he has a favorable salary but the truth is within three years HE WILL lose a step. And that will be about the time the offense with it's new cordinator will truely come together. So why is it so far-fatched to think that we could actually consider traiding Gore???

Yes he has leadership but that can fall by the waiste side if we find someone productive. Leaders have left teams before, others step up and fill the void.
