Gore's Speed!?

Gore is fast enough..

He is quicker than he is fast.

I don't know his time 40 speed but I'd guess it's around 4.6, not particularly fast, but fast enough to break off a lot of 20+ yard runs.

I believe coming out of college he ran a 4.65 but he wasn't as lean as he is now. I think your guess of about 4.6 is about right give or take .03 of a second.
BLUF, Gore's speed is a non issue given his recent improvement. He's likely to get faster this season given the "results" of his training last year and added hill workouts.

I also agree that Spiller is desired as a return man/change of pace back.

Gore is one the best in the league, hands down. He's one the top blocking RB's (which says a lot) he can catch the ball, sometimes you can't even tell he isn't a WR, and now that he's improved his fumbles and speed, he's gotta be one of the better running backs in this league.

I don't see why people want to trade up and spend a top 10 for a guy that's gonna be our KR/PR... it is really mind boggling.

I agree that he has improved greatly in his ability to finish off runs.

FAR too many people in Niner Talk take Frank Gore for granted. He is easily the most significant and most talented player the 49ers have had in a long time (no disrespect to Willis, it's just that Frank arrived earlier and is on offense)

Why Frank Gore is tremendous

1. Has played entire career on two knees that have received major surgery

2. Has been the 49ers only true offensive threat since 2005 (until Vernon's emergence this year). Importance here is that he is all that defenses need to key in on.

3. Has had a very subpar offensive line throughout the years
4. Has had different offensive coordinators every season in the league (everyone loves to mention this in terms of Smith, but no one considers the other players it has affected).

5. Not only a great runner but a truly gifted receiver out of the backfield and a dynamite blocker.

6. Above all, Frank Gore is a class act through and through. No obnoxious attitude. No outrageous complaining, despite being jerked around in the offense on occasion. No off the field nonsense.

He's a team player in every sense of the word. As fans, we are really lucky to still have #21 wearing red and gold.


I cannot say enough about this guy, as evident per my rant above. Being 24, I associate Frank Gore with being the light in the 49ers age of darkness. The one bright spot and constant threat who has dedicated himself to this team and this game and done nothing but perform. Not since Jerry Rice have I appreciated a player more than Frank Gore.

If for no one else, us fans included, the 49ers need to make the postseason for Gore. He has paid his dues and despite all the turmoil during his tenure with SF, he has delivered year in and year out.

Cheers

EXACTLY that is the argument i use all the above factors that Gore i believe is the best ALL AROUND rb in the nfl.
One of the best in
breaking tackles
long runs
blocking
receiving
WITH A HORRIBLE OL.

People point to CJ and AP but both have excellent OL's the best in the league as a matter of fact with the JETS. Put Gore on any one of those OL's and i think he breaks 2,000.

I think CJ is the best RB and then Gore. AP can't catch that well and fumbles way too much.

not listening to youlalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalalala
A lot of people are stroking the shaft and tweeking the balls when it comes to alex smith and frank gore. That would be great and all if we had a winning season. Until then I have no Qualms with anyone on offense getting canned. Except VD. And Crabs. Too early to get rid of Crabs. But other than that, f**k em.
frank gore is amazing

i remember watching him spell kevan barlow at one of the games his rookie season and busting a 40-60 yard TD. knew we had something then

anyway i would probably put him at the 3rd or 4th spot for best RB in the league right now

Idk if he can break away from safties/db's like he did last year if he runs a 4.6, that would mean they would be running 4.7s & 4.8s, and I just don't see NFL starting DB's that slow.

He has to be around a 4.5, either way he has good football speed.

I want Gore to have his jersey retired when it's all set and done. He's so criminally underrated, it's sickening.
