Frank Gore Thread

Rumors of his demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Gore kept proving his detractors wrong.

People should keep attacking Kaepernick on twitter. That motivational tactics worked.
Love me some Gore always. But the other RBs have to be as much of a threat. Team needs to conserve Gore throughout the season so hes fresh for the playoffs.

Hunter looked good late. Convert 1 (maybe 2, can't recall if the one was called back on a penalty) long 3rd downs on the ground. Need to get him going earlier. I think they were so concerned with establishing the run they just leaned on Gore because he was a "trusted agent".
This game was all about Gore! I kept yelling ...Gore-baby! I think it's been expressed enough--- but yes, where is the dissension now??

Frank is the man, although i don't mind it all when Hunter gives him a break-- that kid has reals skills...looks like he's learned well behind a future HOFer!
Frank may've lost a step, but he still knows how to get through holes and find open space. He put on a clinic last night...and gave proper cred to his OL that kicked butt all game. Would still like to see him used as a receiver more...he's got good hands and it's another way to get him into open space. Hunter's got excellent "quicks" and showed it on his TD run.
i wish they would pass to gore a little bit as well. he used to be a monster in the pass game too but they got away from it the last few years. either way its nice to see the old man kick ass still, he never had the break away speed to begin with but he still has the best vision and patience in the nfl as a runner and a great burst for the first 15-25 yards. next victim is houston, get em frank!!!
OMG , we have to get this man his Superbowl Championship. He is such a great all around back and teammate. He is a born leader of men. Very selfless but will take the game in his hands anytime.

I think a Superbowl victory would help his chances at getting a recommendation for The Hall--which if you're a 49ers fan, you have seen his greatness in many ways. I really hope we can cap off his great career with a title.

**can someone quote the tweet from Jeff Deeney, @PFF_Jeff, regarding Gore being rated #1 in the league in pass blocking. ...awesome stats that Gore puts on the field

They are every single year. He starts off "slow", he's "lost a step". People never look at the big picture do they?

This f**king guy...
So no one is hear about how they noticed he's lacking that burst or ready to quote the Bill Walsh better a year too early than a year too late way of handling personnel? The Gore doubters kill me.

I think because of Gore's great vision, he'll continue to be an effective back, even when there is a more significant decline. When we reach the point where there is a back that is clearly better than Gore, if he's willing to remain, I think he could still be effective in a backup role at 32, 33 years old.
