seriously man, i dont remember a back at his age being that dominant, he has never looked this good except for maybe the year with norv turner but thats because he had a ridiculous amount of carries. hes fresher this year and hes getting a bigger chunk of yards on less carries. the guy is just incredible. i hope he retires after a superbowl win in a few years. only thing that sucks is how stacked we are at RB with young, talented guys. they may want out if gore is still the man and we'll have to restock once he finally quits. i dont see gore as the selfish type who would keep playing even though hes a shadow of his former self but at the same time he wont quit just because hes older if he can still play.

Only Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith. At age 32 (their last years of top notch production):

14 Games; 261 Carries; 1021 Yards; 3.9 Average; 3 TDs - Retired at Age 35 = Emmitt Smith
16 Games; 321 Carries; 1333 Yards; 4.2 Average; 8 TDs - Retired at Age 33 = Walter Payton


Barry Sanders
retired at age 30 (Frank's current age). His final season:
16 Games; 343 Carries; 1491 Yards; 4.3 Average; 4 TDs

He looked like he had another 3-4 top notch years in him.

Jim Brown gets an honorable mention because he retired at age 29 but was still the most dominant player in the NFL in his final season. You could argue that, since the season was 14 games instead of 16 during his career (actually the first half of his career was 12 games) that he had less wear and tear but his numbers are still better than any 16 gamer statistically:

14 Games; 289 Carries; 1544 Yards; 5.3 Average; 17 TDs. His final season was the 2nd best of his amazing career. That's just sick!

Anyway, the point is, you have to start looking at players who were considered space aliens to find someone as productive as Gore at age 30. That's pretty impressive.

Michael irving once said with out gores 2 acl injuries he would be the best rusher ever, all time nfl leading rusher! May be biased for coming from the U gore was so frickin fast, but franks still a badass. Sure glad he is a niner :)

Chris Wesseling is a moron. This article is a complete slap in the face to Frank Gore. Not sure if this has been discussed but check out his running back rankings. Most of the commenters agree. Except for the Seahawks fans naturally.

everyone forgets the broken hip...
common theme in our losses.....roman abandons the run. no more than 16 carries for gore in all 3 losses
Gore had no problem running the ball today . 16 carries, 82 yards and 5.1 YPC against the 2nd best rush defense in the NFL. We should have stayed consistent with the run. There was no reason to stop, we were never down in the game until the end there. Greg Roman really needs to go.
