Frank Gore Thread

Guys, come on. It was an 8 man line, screaming out for ....WCO passes....dinks and dunks. Anything to get 8, and sometimes 9 guys off LOS. NOBODY runs thru an 8 man line...nobody. And that includes Frank. Why roman and Coach were so pigheaded about not throwing short quick hitters to back those guys off is a puzzlement.
Wasn't hard to see, half the board saw it. So that has nothing to do with Frank, but all to do with an 8 man line....which WCO is geared to defeat. They back off the line, frank makes yards. 8 or 9 guys on the LOS and frank makes 16 yds on 9 carries.

The math is simple : 8 guys on 5 guys. How do fans watching on TV and not the coaches see this? So cc, I think frank was fine, just got some really bad game calls , exactly like last game in SEA. Same song, second verse.

What I really am afraid of? Is roman being so enamored of kap's big cannon, that he won't call short stuff, slants and outs, which would have eaten up SEA. on an 8 man line. Do that and they back up....then you run frank...not before. 8 guys rushing, 5 guys defending....doesn't work out.

Frank ran through 8-9 man boxes for years. watch pretty much any game in the nolan singletary era.

Ever since he has neen a 49er. We never had a QB teams had to stop. Now we do but SEA has DB's that can play straight man.

So because he can run through a 9 man box with no holes and being met by a defender as soon as he gets the ball, he's declining? I wouldn't dare say that he's in 2006 form. But he's still a good back. Keep in mind he was coming off statisically the second best season of his career.

In a situation like this, you can't simply look at numbers to tell the entire story. Look at Alex Smith for example. It seems he always hovers around 200 yards passing. But no one would argue that Alex Smith is in 2006-2009 form now, despite still hovering around 200 yards passing.

I have said many times I love frank. Im concerned there is a fall off from last year to this year. If he struggles against the colts I will be really worried. Maybe he is hiding an injury or something. I don't know. But like I said watch the superbowl, and then watch these last 2 games. He looks different to me. All that said I hope he drops 200 yards on the colts this week and proves me wrong.

and we have bargain bin receivers besides Boldin for right now. i think our most glaring need is receiver. they should have had packages ready for Harper and Baldwin against seattles huge secondary
The reports of Frank Gore's demise have been greatly exaggerated.

again
Yea, Frank Gore is sure looking terrible out there tonight.
Pretty sad when fans in Ninertalk know more than the ones calling the plays. Run the ball, pretty damn simple...
frank gore really showing his age
If Frank shines we shine. Ride the Tank to victory
We have to keep Gore involved in the gameplan constantly! Thank you Gore!
Gore looking good. Gotta pound their defense.
