Frank Gore Thread

Gotta get a ring for Frank. Don't care if he's on the team, running one more play, on one leg. Frank getting a ring in the SB.

For the last few years people have been talking about how Frank Gore is almost done and he's slowing down. I haven't seen that what so ever and I think Frank can still play another 2-3 pro bowl caliber years at the ages of 30, 31, and 32.

Does drafting Lattimore, signify the end of Frank Gore? Or do we keep playing him as long as he continues to play at a high level? Or if he does continue to play at a high level do we think about trading him and getting value for him while we can?

Personally, I hope that Frank is a 49er until he retires and think as long as he stays playing at a higher level than the other running backs, he should remain the starter. I think this should be Frank's job until he's being out performed. I would just hate to see Gore not end his career as a 49er and be pushed out the door in favor of younger guys just for the fact that they are younger.

What say you?

As far as Jed, Trent, Jim, Frank and even Denise are concerned, Frank Gore is a 49er for life. Some players are the unspoken designated franchise player because of what they represent and have done for the organization. Frank Gore is that guy over the last decade and it isn't even close. He will coach, scout or whatever for us when he is done as he will always have some sort of a capacity here

i have a hard time with this. i realize after his playing days he'll be around in some sort of fashion. but theres gonna be a time when the 49ers want to move on, be it next year or the year after. if someone offers frank some money to play, he should take it, he'll never have a chance to make that type of money again. this 49er for life stuff sounds cute, until the team wants to play the other guys and some other team is willing to offer him some money even if it is the vet minnimum.
I love Frank but they didn't draft Lattimore to watch for 3 seasons.
If Frank continues to play at 2012 level in 2013 he's definitely the starter in 2014.

Since Lattimore will not play in 2013, or will maybe get a snap or two late in the season in a finished game, frank will be the Starter comming into 2014.
The real question ist 2015.
I could see giving Lattimore more snaps on typical Gore downs in 2014.
The big four headed RB monster Gore, Lttimore, Hunter, James :droool:

2014 may be his final year.


I want Gore to play forever.
Gore is the only guy I lose my mind and almost fist fight people when they talk bad about him or niners. You can talk smack on my team and say we overrated and lucky etc but when they diss Gore I get over the top. Heart and soul of this team and broke my heart we couldnt get him a ring last year. THIS IS THE YEAR OF GORE
Is it too much to ask that we win back to back Super Bowls and that Frank Gore can retire after the 2014 season with 2 Super Bowl rings and over 10,000 yards rushing?

Frank Gore led league in facing eight defenders in the box in 2012 - PFF

The 49er Way

If you've missed our tweeting on it, there really was only one contender to this crown and his name was Frank Gore. An astonishing 42.25% of his runs saw him face at least eight defenders in the box, although we'll explain why some of this isn't down to the schemes and offensive formations used by the 49ers.

But for now here's the entire list of rushers with at least 100 designed carries. The league average came out at 23.25%. Stay tuned because tomorrow we're going to add some more data to the mix when we look at how the use of offensive personnel impacts this.

I totally agree that Frank is our stud and at the top of the league in RB talent, but any stat that shows Shonn Greene near the top has something wrong with it. :)

pshhh they were probably focusing more on sanchez pissing himself with the pressure than greenes running ability lol
I would go zero coverage against the Jets so this doesn't surprise me, that two Jets RBs are around Gore's Great stat line.
