Wasting the Career of Frank Gore...

Agreed. Gore would have been amazing on the teams that Roger played for.

Nope

Because Frank gets all uptight if he doesn't get all of the carries.

Except for 1988 when Craig was NFC Player of the Year (also called the year of the High Knee Step), Craig always shared the load. With Tyler, with Rathman. There was always another back. Frank has never had that and, quite frankly, emotionally could not handle that.

We had Rice, Taylor, Frank, Francis, and Later Jones. Clark and Solomon too.

Craig had 3 years where he was the man in the backfield but there was ALWAYS another back that was important

Norris is complete garbage at this point. We have Brian Freaking Westbrook on the team and he has to have less than 20 touches ALL YEAR

No wonder why a talent like Blount would not want to sign here

Don't get me wrong, I love Frank and I'm glad he break a lot of records. They will be hollow records, however.

It's a lot easier to play Rb when you have the greatest coach, qb, wr of all time

Gorexcuses

j/k

BTW, you also forgot the greatest OWNER of all time that should be in the HOF

And a very UNDERRATED GM in McVay. Walsh and he were seamless.

Pure unadulterated BS.

Gore wants to WIN.
I'm personally done with a lot of the old regime. That includes Gore. Build around Crabs, VD and a new running back next year. I love what Frank gave us but his days are numbered.

I'd be willing to bet that a new coach who actually knows offense would be willing to show Frank the door or make him a backup. He's a great player and fits Singletary's vision. But we all know what that has done for us. Time to move on.

I am done with this thread....that is crazy. He is still young, you are talking like he is 35 years old. The dude wants to win, PERIOD! he is the one good dude on offense on a worthless team for years and you want to crap on him for what???

days are numbered....1st player in the league THIS year to 1000 yds...days are numbered.
and...this guy has supported every facet of this jacked up team.. coaches, QBs, etc. One constant good player and you cannot support. Come on

I know it sounds crazy but I just want to blow this thing up. Especially on offense. Arian Foster will be the first to 1.000 yards. I got nothing but good things to say about him but our entire offense is based on a 31 year old running back. Time is running out and it would serve him better to not be wasted here. Just like the OP mentioned.

It might work out better for both parties.

Change is needed. We need new blood injected into this team by a proven coach or GM. Somebody with a philosophy that works.

not 1st to 1000 rushing...Gore was the 1st to 1000 combined. receiving and rushing. Not bad huh? This is a was, not a will be.
I agree that Gore's career has been wasted to this point. It's a miracle he's lasted this long with the number of carries and ever so obvious gameplan.

Considering he runs behind our offensive line which is the equivalent to running into a brick wall, couple that with inept QB's who are not allowed to audible on obvious run blitzes and he has 2 good years left on him max.

We are more than 2 years away from being contenders. Maybe more if we draft a new QB. If he gets hurt are you that confident in Dixon or Westbrook (likely he'll be gone)? What's your backup plan?

bolded for you pleasure. that is the point. If we had a team, this guy is an All world RB, and an all world teammate. He is not old yet man. Get rid of him for what. They don't give up draft picks for RBs at their peak.

This guy just produces, doesnt b***h, just plays. He supports and has been loyal when 90% of the league would not have been. He deserves some loyalty.

Then he pays you back in "your two years" by mentoring his replacement.
some of you guys, Betterdayz included, are good posters...but you are wrong on Gore. Dude is a great 9er.

I never said he has to go, but would he accept a reduced role? The 2 headed monster at RB theory is pretty effective now so if you read my initial post I said he could be a back up to fresh legs.

But would he? At what price?

Don't be afraid to draft another RB higher than a 3rd rounder. Or show him some appreciation by letting him find a team who is ready to win now. I don't feel we are just yet. I see major changes coming, at least I hope.

Frank is great player. I love Frank don't get that wrong. Just cause I say he might have to move on doesn't mean I don't appreciate what he has given us.
