Definitely the perfect song for Frank. He has the heart of a champion no doubt. Dude had like 130 yards rushing in the Superbowl. Damn shame we didn't win that game. We'll just have to get him his ring this year! No one on this team deserves it more than Frankie G.

Guys who deserve a ring the most:

1) Gore
2) Willis
3) VD
4) Justin Smith
5) Staley

Before the Bruce Ellington thread gets derailed even further lets take the Frank Gore talk where it belongs.

This is getting crazy ethan.
Lol at calling Johnson more spectacular than Gore. His talk yes. His production nope.

Your are right that Adrian Peterson is very good and one of the best of our generation. But I would not say that over his career he played in a different league than Frank Gore. Talking about pure running skills I would give Peterson the nod but Gore is the better receiving threat out of the backfield. Both are very good backs.

When talking about a spectacular back., there is only one at this moment and that is Jamaal Charles IMHO.
Yards per season are easily inflatable by Attempts per season. When I look at RB´s I look at Yards per Attempt and Yards per Reception + to put those numbers into perspective their Attempts.


Frank Gore
Career: Rushing Attempts 2187
Y/A 4.6
Y/R 8.4

Chris Johnson
Career: Rushing Attempts 1742
Y/A 4.6
Y/R 7.4


You also claimed that Gore belongs to the middle of the pack when RB´s are mentioned because of his performance last season. Here are the Career numbers of the players who finished before him last season.


Eddie Lacy
Career: Rushing Attempts 284
Y/A 4.1
Y/R 7.3

Ryan Matthews
Career: Rushing Attempts 849
Y/A 4.4
Y/R 7.6

Marshawn Lynch
Career: Rushing Attempts 1753
Y/A 4.2
Y/R 7.6

Adrian Peterson
Career: Rushing Attempts 2033
Y/A 5.0
Y/R 8.2

Alfred Morris
Career: Rushing Attempts 611
Y/A 4.7
Y/R 7.8

Matt Forte
Career: Rushing Attempts 1551
Y/A 4.3
Y/R 8.6

Lesean McCoy
Career: Rushing Attempts 1149
Y/A 4.8
Y/R 7.8

Jamaal Charles who finished 3th. but is the most spectacualar back at this point.
Career: Rushing Attempts 1043
Y/A 5.6
Y/R 8.9


And last but not least here are some all time greats in comparison to Frank Gore in no particular order.


Frank Gore

49ers Studios caught up with the San Francisco 49ers all-time rushing king at Michael Crabtree's football camp. Gore shared his thoughts on the 49ers running backs and how he's preparing for his 10th season.

^^ DeUh, great stuff man. That list really shows what kind of elite company Frank is in. He is unquestionably one of the better backs from recent memory.

On a side note, how the f**k did Emmitt Smith log 4,400 carries!? That's twice as many as Frank's career. Crazy tread on those tires.

Yes that´s insane. 15 years as an NFL Running Back . 6 more than Frank at this moment. Maybe there is a lot more to come from Frank ?

We can only hope.

I've been saying they have very similar running styles, so Frank very well may have much more in the tank than some think.

He had a great Oline for the majority of his career. He was also built to not absorb a lot of hits.
People always downplay Emmitt's achievements but if you ask me he was one helluva running back. Even put up damn near 1,000 years at 3.6 a carry when he was 35 with the s**tty Cardinals.
Somebody started another thread about Frank working out by boxing. I posted a comment there, but then realized I should have put it in this thread (after some chiding from others). I'll delete it over in that thread and paste it in here:


I think I read that last season Frank had the third most carries of his career. Probably because Kendell was out so long and the passing game was anemic at best till Crabtree got back. When it comes to the end of the season and hopefully 9ers are in the playoffs, there is nobody I want more than Frank to be the primary ball carrier/pass blocker/receiver and I want him to be sharp and fresh. To stay sharp he's going to need to carry the ball a fairly high percent of the time in the regular season. To stay fresh, he's going to have watch from the sidelines more. Fortunately, for the team, there's plenty of running back talent to use while keeping Frank fresh. I want to see Frank smash his way through the playoffs and bash the 9ers to a win in the Super Bowl. Box on, man!!!


Edit: Oops, that other thread is locked, so I can't delete it. Sorry about the duplication.

The two Martins should rejuvenate his YPC average. It going to be tough to let him go if the front office decides to do that. Personally I think the two Martins will add another productive year or two - easy - in his NFL career. Well see this year, there is some good RB's trying to take his job this year.

His O-line wasn't bad either.
