Team should try & trade for Adrian Peterson, and I'm not kidding. AP has 3 to 4 years max on his career too. Why not? Give the Vikings our 1st this year and a 2nd. We'd still have 4 picks from 62 thru 95.

Yeah but Gore is pretty much done. He doesn't have the burst, power or quickness anymore and he was never great at short yardage too. If I was Baalke, I'd bring back Gore in a reduced role at a reduced price. This team needs a workhorse every down back.
You guys saying that Gore has declined are nuts. He has shown no signs of that. Seattle has a great defense and the came with a game plan to shut down our running game. They executed it well and we failed to counter.

That said, he's getting older and won't be able to play forever. We have this discussion every off-season and he keeps coming back strong.

My prediction is that Gore will start in 2014. The real competition will be for the backup RB spot between Kendall Hunter and Lattimore. James should stick as a change of pace back and return specialist.

Gore plays out his contract, retires, and Lattimore starts in 2015. Book it
For the people that said the niners should extend Gore for another 2 years to get a ring, why not just make him an assistant RB coach next to Rathman?.. If they win the SB he can get a ring as a coach, I know it sucks because you would want to win it as a player but father time don't see it like that.

i could be wrong but i believe elephant haley was also saying in another thread about trading for dez bryant. i get fantasy football is fun to play in your head, but dummy up, understand the way this front office operates. sign our own guys and get bargains like dorsey and skuta, thats whats up coming.
Whatever man. Frankie's blocking on passing downs is boss. And I ain't too sold on this Lattimore kid. And if Harbaugh insists on running the 21st version of Ditka's Chicago offense, this offense will need a beast of a running back.

Everyone is going to remember the 11 carries for 14 yards but there are circumstances around everything. Seattle was constantly in our backfield. Gore was playing with a broken hand. I think his carries will be reduced next year as we work Lattimore in. He isnt going to run for 1,000 but we wont need him to. he will get us 50 a game and pass protect. Next year is probably it though.

This and as Kap continues to improve, the 8 and 9 in the box situations will lessen. Gore is still a good runner and a great Back. The backs behind him will continue to get better because of him.
he needs to be kept to get over that 10 grand

The Eagles might give up LeSean McCoy for that...or at least I wish. He'd be perfect in our offense!
