Gore is not in the mold of other famous 49er backs. He is not explosive, one dimensional, and can't create his own holes. He is OK. Not a superstar. He is not a threat to take it all the way. There is no fear.
I rather have the offensive game plan center around Davis, Walker, Crabtree.
Brian Westbrook would be better compliment to Davis, Walker, Crabtree than Gore.
Gore is not a threat. Defense are jumping for joy every time we give it or pass it to Gore.
If we didn't insist of feeding Gore for 5 years, we would have passing by now.
You can almost here the collective "Oh no!" from 49er fans everytime Gore touches the ball.
Gore is a stud, but he's not going to beat a stacked box, and we evidently don't have a QB on the roster that will scare opponent into trying to defend the pass instead of the run. On top of that, we have a coach stuck in 1980s (I'm surprised Sing doesn't have a mullet) that wants to stubbornly center our offense around the run. To blame all this on Gore is foolish though IMO.
Gore hasn't done a damn thing this season.
Take away the dink and dunk passes from Smith and what has Gore done RUNNING the ball? #10 in rushing yards and #24 in TD's. Yeaaa that is someone we should really be centering our offense on. Don't get me wrong I am a fan of Frank Gore, but I just don't think he is someone that the offense should be centered around. He doesn't have the ability to turn nothing into something.
