Just got through reading the Gameday Q&A with Alex Boone and reading what he had to say about Gore and Ray McDonald got me even more fired up for the season.
What's the best part about blocking for Frank Gore?
What isn't there to love about blocking for Frank Gore? You give him a crease and it's off to the races with anybody. He's so determined. He's so focused all the time. He always wants the best out of you and the minute you don't give him the best, he's going to call you out. I think he keeps guys accountable which is important. When someone loses focused, he's the first person to call you out on it – and that's a true leader – that's a man. You want to have that and to have it in Frank, he's the one carrying the ball, and he's determining a lot of the success of the team. It's an honor to block for one of the greatest power running backs, trap running backs, in the history of the NFL. So, to be on the same team as him and to be able to say I blocked for him, is an honor.
Truth be told right there! Gore is the man! Bring on the Pack already! GO NINERS
