Frank Gore Thread

If he never gets hurt no way he drops to us. He would have been picked in the first round
True. I definitely appreciate what Frank the Tank is now! He has been the heart and soul of this team since he got here! It's fun to speculate though!
Guy beat out Portis and Magahee in Miami his freshmen year before said injuries. Guy would have been almost Jesus like.
Greatest niner RB in the history of mankind.

I remember when we drafted him, Mel Kiper got all wet talking about Gore. How we got a huge steal.

He would have been a Top 10 pick easily, good draft choice and RB for some other team.
We NEVER would have been in position to get him.
What if Gire...

Frank Gore had never had his knee injuries in college. His freshmen year he was averaging more than 9 yards per carry. He had 4.3 speed before his injuries. In my opinion he has some of the greatest vision, if not the greatest vision of all time. He is also one of the best when it comes to patience and squeezing through holes. I believe if he still had that breakaway speed and hadn't gotten injured he would have been a top 5 or even 3 back of all time. He's already the greatest 49ers back ever. Here is to the Inconvenient Truth! What say you?

There is the very real possibility that those injuries made him the man and running back he is today. Why morn what he is not and celebrate, my dear niner brethren, what Frank "the Tank" is?

Kinda agree here...

BTW, he NEVER had 4.3 speed. I've watched almost all of his college highlights when I made a Frank Gore vid awhile back, and he never really had that breakaway speed. He was QUICK and SUDDEN tho. I think the biggest things that made him so good were his vision and patience, and he didn't lose those with the injuries.
He would be the Bucs RB right now.

Caddy Williams would've went somewhere else
