The thing about Frank though is that he needs the extra carries to get into rhythm. We can't just bring him in on spot duty here and there, and then expect him to come in full time and be all world come playoffs. If he's banged up that's one thing but he's healthy right now and running like its easy and he's hungry so FEED HIM!! Please.

The Frank Gore Conundrum. Rhythm versus Fatigue.
The amount of carries frank is getting is fine. He is getting nowhere near the amount of carries he got earlier in his career. The fact is, we need gore in there most of the time. He is far and away the best on the roster at everything that is asked of a RB. If anything he needs MORE carries. Hes finally getting his goal line carries though which is good to see. Never understood taking Frank out at the goal line.
Interesting stat they put up during the game. Since 2005, Frank is 2nd in the NFL with 34 100 yard rushing games. Only Adrian Peterson has more (39).

Also, Frank has 7 rushes of 20 plus yards this yr - most in the nfl.

Alfred Morris and Terrelle Pryor are tied for second with five 20 yard plus rushes.

Brotha lynch is tied for 3rd amongst others with four.

This just shows that Frank has vision. Talk all you want about the 40 yard dash but it don't mean nothing!

Gore has been amazing for us for yrs! Every yr people say he is done, and that badass mofo shows em to shut their mouths of that jibberish. Bad knees, stacked boxs, no help at (fill in o players) predictability, no break away speed, broken leg (hip), he is 28, 29, 30! This man just defies what the league seems to have disliked for yrs! Our leader, for yrs our lone brite spot on offense! Id love to see gore pull a curtis martin! Keep going like the energiser bunny........ Few yrs ago cj2k was the talk of the league! What has he done since!? Gore has been here yrly, producing, injured/healthy the works. tomlinson called em recently the consistent truth! And in the words of chris berman the inconvienient truth to the rest of league who has to face us and gore! 10,000 coming up soon and fast for gore! Hell yeah

Frankie G's the man

Though Roger Craig is the all time greatest RB in history, gotta say they is no way to not love Frank Gore and put him in the same car as Craig.

That said, yeah we need to keep him as rested as possible. Loved seeing Boogie in there this weekend and he was definitely bringing it.

He's quicker, more decisive, and better educated than he was. Boogie hurts when he hits.

Want to see him spell Gore more.

I love Roger, but championships aside, Frank Gore is the best Running Back to ever don a Niner jersey. By any statistical category; what he has meant to the team, consistency, leadership, however you slice it Frank is the Truth.
17 more tds & frank (67) can pass owens (83) for 2nd place all time in 49er history

I think so. He gets the lions share of carries and I do agree it helps him get into the flow of the game better. But it seems we don't really trust any other rb's unless someone get's injured and is forced to play more. Gore is a beast and has the best vision i've seen since, Marcus Allen but I'd also like to see him close to 100% come january

It's his blocking we can't easily replace. Kendall has greatly improved in that area, but Frank is a Tank.

He is on pace to have his best season of his career as far as rushing TD's go. He has 5 already. His best year was 2009 when he had 10.
Frank Gore is the best running back the niners have ever had in my opinion. One of the greatest niners players of all time and hopefully a hall of famer...he deserves it.
Wait for it.....


Since 2005, the only runner with more 100 yard games than Frank Gore is AP. And, I think he's only got four more than Gore.
Ok its time I finally just get on board. I will always love Roger Craig as my greatest Niner back ever, since I lived that era real time. He was literally unstoppable and set precedents not seen before or since.

But jeez, Frank Gore. How blessed we have been.

LETS GET THAT MAN A RING!

I started watching football in 1980, love me some Roger, but I like Gore better. I guess it is just a matter of personal preference. And yes...GET THAT MAN A RING!
