Frank Gore Thread

I'm more than fine with Frank's contract this year. After the SB, talk to him about taking a paycut, but until then we has deserved everything he is getting. He is one of the all-time niners.
wow...

If you can replace his production with cheaper players you do it. That's how you win superbowls.

now green bay and atlanta sure could have used a good running back but there weren't any Gores to be found. Our OL is chief but yet still Frank is the man and if we give him the ball in the final set of downs, we are Super Bowl champs

Here is why I disagree; If you treat one of your all-time greats horribly, you will lose credibility with other players. We can sign everyone we need to this year and leave Frank's money alone. After next year might be a different story, but we will see.

I'm not sticking a spear through the heart and sole of the team. If you want to do that to save money you can. Gore has a lot left in the tank; I think he has earned the right to go out on his terms and play for a SB these next two years. Not sure Hunter and James are fully ready to take the full load anyways. I would ask him after this year to restructure to do what's best for the cap and the team. You could do it before this year but after this year seems more appropriate.

Gore is special. Greatest back in 49er history and he will get to 10000 yards with a Super Bowl ring

Amen to that. We got three yards on first down and have another 3 plays to go 5 and still need to run 1:30 off the clock....those last 3 plays will go down as the worst called possession in super bowl history.

What's the over/under on Gore's 40 time at this point in his career? 4.9?

Prolly so, but it's his vision/grind that makes his game so sick... no doubt he plays with bad ankles every year.
I'd be ok paying Gore 8 million for all the b******t he had to put up with.

He's played behind mediocre O-Lines in the past. Runs between/underneath tackles with bunch of hogs ending up on top of him and he still pops right up for more. He has put his body through much abuse and sacrificed a lot (playing injured)... dude doesn't quit. He deserves every penny.
There was a very big difference between when Gore is in and when one of the others is running. Wish he could take it to the house a bit more, but soooo many of his 6 yard runs would be 1 yard runs for other guys.

I am convinced that if he had still been in on the 1st down from the 5 that LMJ got stuffed on the Niners win that game. Maybe he doesn't get in, but he gets a couple more yards and gives more options to the coaches (like Kap jumping over the line from the 2).

He had just had the huge run to get down there and took the next play off because he was winded from the big run.

Gore is worth every penny for another year, maybe this talk makes sense next off season if Hunter and LMJ continue to grow as backs (which I have every belief they will, not knocking them)

And that is why after the long run I would not have minded a TO then to let the guys know that we have 7 yards to win the Super Bowl and we have the best OL, the best mobile QB, the pistol, read option, best blocking TEs, best jumbo personnel and a healthy Frank Gore. Give it to frank or Kaep 3 times and is all else fails, put Kaep is the gun on 4th down. I just don't think they could stop us on 3 downs from pounding in 7 yards with Ngata on the sideline. WTF were we thinking??
Go get 'em!
