Not to mention, but he played with bad o-lines in the past and still got his thousand+ yards...

Does this take into account the package an offense uses? Guys who play for spread teams are never going to see 8 in the box because there are always 3-4 receivers on the field. Teams that use a lot of jumbo packages like the 49ers are going to see 9-10 guys in the box regularly. I think this probably says more about offensive philosophy and respect for the opposing teams quarterback(Jets) than the quality of the running back.
Re-name the stadium to Frank Gore Park

It doesn't. But Frank has had 8+ in the box his whole career regardless of the formation. That's what makes him that great.
Gore is a damn beast! I hope he can play as long as curtis martin :) hellyeah

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. :)

They stacked the box on him not because he commanded such respect the way Gore does, but because they had Sanchez at QB. Why even defend the pass?

But let's be real here... teams used to stack the box on Gore because they didn't respect our passing game. We very rarely made them pay for it. Kaep will change that if they continue to do it.

The main thing that makes Gore great is the fact that stacking the box STILL didn't stop him.

Over 1k in yards!? That would surprise me. Hope you're right. I'm debating how high I should rank gore in my fantasy draft.


I'm predicting by mid-season, Hunter and LMJ will be eating up a lot of Gore's shares.

I agree but he's not superhuman.

Think bout this...prior to Hunter's injury last season, him and Gore's production was almost a 50/50 split. 'm faithful Hunter will return 100% sometime this season, that coupled with LMJ's increased role in the offense, will amount to a huge chunk of Gore's production.

Well last year he had 1214 yards, so I expect a slight dip, but I think precisely because Hunter and LMJ will be in a lot, Gore will remain fresh throughout the season, giving him a chance to rack up more yards when he does play.

b******t...Gore is more than superhuman he carried this team through some s**tty years and his production hasn't wavered. With Hunter and James he will stay fresh throughout the season but he'll still have over 1000 yards barring injury
