Frank Gore relates to long suffering fans
Now that 49ers running back Frank Gore is contributing to a winning team, he's acting like a different person. In his previous six seasons in San Francisco, Gore rarely cracked a smile. Often, he seemed down right morose. No longer, Gore smiles, he jokes, he laughs.
Gore also feels a kinship with the long-suffering. He mentions his relationship with quarterback Alex Smith and guard Adam Snyder, two players that were part of his 2005 draft class and how great they all feel now with the 49ers at 6-1.
Gore also shares a sense of revival with another group – the fans. "The fans, they are happy and I'm happy for them," Gore said Monday. "There's been some rough years and they've always been there and now we're doing something really great for them."
