The look on Chump Sherman's face is hilarious though.

Gore isn't Chris Johnson, but he's probably faster then Marshawn Lynch. I don't understand why this is coming up now.

You might be right about that. Gore has better burst and gets to top speed quicker, that's for sure. Lynch is just a bull, yards after contact demon.

Lynch's longest run on the year is 43 yards BTW. Gore's 51 yard run just beat that team. Gore's speed is good enough.

At first I figured this was bumped from an old thread, to force someone to eat crow because of what Gore just did, but then I looked at the date and I couldn't believe it. I guess it's not surprising for the Webzone though.

We probably have more running yards for loss then any other team in the league. Kap, Hunter, Gore, Miller, everybody getting hit behind the line, that is obviously not on the players. The other team knows it's coming and they're hitting our gaps. EVERYBODY is getting stuffed at the line, not just Gore.

That was exactly my response. Wow.

OFFICIAL: FRANK GORE NEEDS TO GO

I really don't care about the backlash anymore, but Frank's time as a 49er needs to just end already. Frankly, if he were trying out as an undrafted FA, he would not even make an NFL roster. He would also run a 40 time over 5 seconds, seriously.

A big part of the problem with our running game is Frank simply does not threaten the edges of a defense at all and it is killing our running game. After reviewing the Seattle game again, there are a number of runs that Gore could have easily broken to the outside for huge gains, but he so damn slow he doesn't even try-and rightly so.

I know this topic is simply taboo for a lot of fans, but it is reality. The irony is I think that Gore is so good at squeezing through tight holes that it masks a lot of the deficiencies in our running game too, so this is a double edge sword. The fact is our interior line play $ucking sucks and has all year. They get no push at all...none of them. Goodwin is downright horrible. Snyder never could run block and he still can't. Iupati was horrible all year. The advanced stats on ProFootball Talk validate all of this too, so this is just factual. Kap artificially inflates our running numbers every game also masking the realities of our dire running game.

I'm sorry gents but our running game is horrible. Against playoff caliber teams our running game is not going to work at all. It didn't work last year, but the new read option saved us in the playoffs...that won't happen again. This problem is bigger than Gore, but Gore is a part of the problem. His lack of speed is simply embarrassing.

id rather frank stays and you go

Too much open field, Frank can only stay up if he is bouncing off or running over defenders!

WUT?

You do know that Gore has a higher average than Hunter this year? A guy that he couldnt dream of beating in a foot race? How is hunter doing at threatening the edges?

You do know that Gore averaged 7.7 yac against the rams in our first match up, and 7.5 against the colts. He averaged 4.8 against the texans and 5.1 against the Panthers? He averaged 6.5 against the seahawks last night....

You do know that this season he will likely end with between 1100 and 1200 yards rushing?

In last years post season, in three games he had 319 yards, 4 TD's and a 5.1 average...

I have no clue what some of you guys want out of a RB. I dont know if you guys calling for decreased carries by Gore really just misunderstand the position or what, but either way, you really dont have a leg to stand on with your argument.

Frank Gore is the seventh leading rusher in the NFL currently, and out of the guys ahead of him, only two have less attempts (Forte, Morris) and NONE of them have more 20+ yard gains than Frank. NONE. Frank is tied with Morris as the only two RB's in the league this season with 9, 20+ yard rushes.

What more can this guy do for you to gain your support? Seriously?
WTF?
Honestly I was so frustrated all I said was "f***ing finally"

There is nothing he can do, at this point. If fans don't realize the positive impact he has had on this team this year, and every year since 2005, they never will. The guy is just flat out under-appreciated.
Is Earl Thomas known as a poor open field tackler?

Quite possibly the most underrated 49er of all time. My personal favorite 49er of all time.

I remember the top 10 49ers thread we had a while ago. I would say well over 50% of the posters didnt even have him in their top ten. Probably about 95+% didnt have him in the top 5. I understand people come from different eras, and everyone is entitled to their opinions, but that thread really opened my eyes as to how little this fan base understands Gore's value to this team.
