Frank Gore Thread

When he made that last cut:


When I saw the angle he was taking: - - -

I was thinking either

- Possibly hurt
- Ran out of gas
- Trying to run out of bounds to burn clock


Personally, I've been waiting to see Frank break a big one all the way (esp. with people doubting his breakaway speed) like he did against SEA years ago, so to see him running towards the sideline wasn't as exciting (but looked kinda funny).

Can't argue with the results, though.

"Wish he was faster" lol... But great run

Actually, I'd like to know how SEA fans reacted when FRANK THE TANK broke off that huge run to ice the game. Were they in 12th man mode and screaming their head off? Or did they actually stfu.

Gore has been the best player on crappy teams...

Looking at the history of the 49ers I don't even want to think about frank gore lead teams.

Glad the 49ers had him...hate that the team wasted his youth, but the guy is number 3 maybe 4 in my era of 49er running backs.

Guys like watters and Craig had to be accounted for in the running game and really had to be watched in the passing game.

Hearst and gore bring up 3 or 4 depending how I feel and what time of day it is

Put Gore on those teams in his prime and its not even close. I understand nostalgia and all that, but Gore is in fact the best 49er RB all time, and most of his career was played on crap squads where he was literally the only weapon on the offensive side of the ball. None of those RB's you mentioned faced the stacked boxes Gore has faced his entire career.
Just when it looked like he was getting slower, he wins the game for us bigtime with a pro bowl run against the leagues' toughest defense.

This guy is without a doubt my favorite niner RB of all time.

They will likely split carries, and thats a good thing for both of them. It will exend both of their careers, and make the team better. BUT, it is still very likely that Gore will continue to be the best RB on the roster. People said the same thing about Gore when Hunter first emerged. I like Lattimore a lot, but he has huge shoes to fill.

If only he could have caught that pass in New Orleans

Gore after all he has done for this team still gets flack and doubt its almost disrespectful to the point makes me sick. Any team would love to have a frank Gore on their team. If Gore only had a qb or passing game! His career would be easy Hall of fame type career. Frank is the 49ers period.

That remains to be seen. I can only hope that Lattimore will be good enough to take away from Gore

Forget numbers.

LOOK at what he is doing.

NO ONE has done that stuff.

EVER. Not gale, walter, barry, eric, emmit, jim, curtis, thurman, oj.

NO OTHER great back GOT YARDS the way FRANK does!

You will NEVER see his running style again! He is a FREAK of nature.

That is WHY he is still HELPING US at 30 years old with two knee operations.

People say he old and sucks they say our line is horrible which they have been this year at open up holes. but aren't you contradicting yourself by saying that our offense of line is not good and Creating open space yet Frank Gore still bust out big runs at age 30. If you ask me that's a testament of how good of a player he is at his age and any era on any team. You don't teach and find instincts like Gore.
