I am truly disgusted by how pathetically fickle some of you are. If Gore has a 3 touchdowns next week you same morons will start threads about how awesome Gore is. You are the worst kind of people in life, completely lacking the patience and integrity to appreciate anything.
If you would rather have Reggie Bush than Frank Gore chances are you are a complete sell-out and idiot. Let me guess you want us to draft Tim Tebow too and trade to get TO back. Go root for the Cowboys you will fit right in with the rest of their fans.
Reggie Bush is better in this sort of offense because he's better at catching passes and he's more athletic. Frank is/was better between the tackles/as a pure runner, but that's not what we need anymore. And to be honest I'm not even a huge fan of Bush, I've thought he was overrated ever since he was drafted and he's had 2 or 3 surgeries on his knees since. But Gore isn't the same player he was 2 years ago that made him so much better than Bush either. I have his jersey and he was great to watch but he's not the same player anymore. He's injury prone(check his ankle sprains, 4 over last 3 years), he doesn't do a good job of hitting the hole anymore(usually winds up running into the back of a lineman when the hole is to his right or left).
I liked him too, I still like him as a person, but he's overrated at the moment and he's not the same player and its time to atleast get another back which we SHOULD have done 2 years ago when we saw what the NY Giants were able to do with a 3 back system(which is what I wanted, to see us find a guy to take some of the carries) and I think that having him take all the carries took a big toll on his knees that have had both ACLs replaced.
He cost us that MNF game in Zona last year, stumbling at the 2 yard line after barely being touched, he cost us this game. You can point to the other things that happened, VD dropping the touchdown, or Smith missing 2 of his last 3 throws or whatever, or not running the clock out and going to OT, or whatever. But the game was there, we had a chance to take the lead, we had a good rythm, and he coughed the ball up in a game that we needed to keep our chance at the playoffs alive.
BTW I've got Tebow as a bust in the NFL too and I don't want TO back anymore.
