1123 yards and 7 TDs

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.

we've all seemed to underestimate what Gore will do year in and year out...dude is a monster

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.

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

Perhaps his body of work is superhuman, but I'm saying he's wearing down. Anyone who says he's still playing in his prime is in denial. I really hope he still gains over 1000 yards, but Gore's days as a bell cow are over. And IMHO, this offense is going to be a lot more dynamic this year than we've ever seen.

Gore is still probably top 3 in the league at picking up 5-10 yards. He's definitely lost his burst, but between our line's blocking, and his vision, I think he can play at an elite level for maybe 3 more years. The reality is there are 2 very good and hungry backs behind him who are going to eat into his carries though. I think his YPC will stay right around 4.5/att., but his total number of carries will go down this year and next. If Hunter is healthy and 100% when the season rolls around I'd expect maybe a 45/35/20 split between Gore/Hunter/James, with James getting more reps on passing plays too.

Sounds bout right!
Gore can still tote the pill and he is entering this season very motivated by those that say he can't. Our OL will only help our situation

thank you for bumping this thread. it has been a tough week with the hurts and its nice to remember we still got gore! and we will always be good as long as we have him. maybe the injuries to the wide outs, IF, they linger will FORCE roman to throw more screens to gore and james and hunter

1,161 yards, the exact amount he needs to get to 10k career yards. I'll say 6 TD's because we have more RZ options this year.

@MBachCSN #49ers Frank Gore is sitting on 8,839 career rushing yards; said:" It'd be a blessing to get 10,000 yards this year"
I think Gore will once again prove to be a beastly workhorse for us and go for 1250 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Wow, I hope he gets it. Another 1,000 yard season from Gore will do wonders for this offense! Then again. I wouldn't mind limiting Gore during the regular season and have him come in fresher in the playoffs.
i have a feeling this will be gores best year. weve built a powerful O-Line, we have a qb who can put the fear into people through the air and is a major threat to run. Gore will prove once again that he is THE man
The 49ers offense has been based on Frank since 2006. Defenses have keyed almost exclusively on number 21 anytime they played the Niners. He ran against 8-9 man boxes for 90% of his career with hardly a threat of a passing game! Frank still managed to become the all time leading rusher for the 49ers. Now with the emergence of Kaepernick and his ability, the focus isn't on number 21. I look for this year to be; while maybe not huge statistically for Gore; extremely efficient and productive (as in YPC and touchdowns) while still being the main driving force behind this now explosive offense.

Go Niners
Go for 10,000 yards Gore!!! A true football player, and a true Niner!!!!!!! HOF

Gores been proving doubters like you wrong for a long time. You think at age 30 Gore is going to let anyone take carries from him!? You think with all the respect Harbs has for Frank, that he would sit him for a second year player that fumbled the Super Bowl away, or a guy coming off of a Achilles?? People like you need to check into the nut house.

I still remember when Gore was in college he played against my Seminoles and straight DESTROYED us. I was like "damn, this guy is a f**kin BEAST". I had never seen a RB as good as him to that point. It's like every rush was for at least 7 yards.


I was so happy when we drafted him. I KNEW if his knees held up he was gonna be a monster.

I want him to get to the HOF more than any current Niner. Frank is the man!

That said, I wanna wi a SB for the greatest Niner running back ever
I love Gore, but I've legitimately questioned his HOF status. I mean for running backs you have to be pretty stout.

But, if he gets to 10,000 and we win the Super Bowl this year that will put him in a very good argument company.

I've been having this argument with fitz and brooks on knbr for the last couple of seasons. They don't give him any chance to get in. Saying how devalued the running back is these days. But, if guys like cris carter are getting in I think gore has done almost enough. I agree with you, in that he will have to at least get over 10,000, but probably more like 11,000 and a championship to get in. Last season if he got the ball at the end and scored, he might have been a Super Bowl MVP. That would have helped a lot. Instead, he didn't touch the ball, even though he was the one that got him to the 5 yd line
