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.

I can understand the frustration. It's a thing with fans, they get upset when their team loses and they have to blame somebody. This season I can see people blaming Gore because he's the "centerpiece" of the offense. It's frustrating as hell watching him run into a wall twice putting us in third and long.

Just take a second to think about how different it would be if he was used properly, though. Would you really want him gone if we brought in someone who could make him a part of the offense and not the whole of the offense? Even if he was on the field the whole time, if he wasn't the center of a failed scheme he would be an asset worth having, right?

We need to use all of our weapons equally. That's the fault of the coaching staff, not Frank Gore.

Where did you come up with the bold, though? I must have missed something. My brain is working even worse than normal today.
Frank is a great HB but really....I'm kinda getting tired of the offense being held hostage by Gore and trying to make him the centerpiece of everything the team wishes to accomplish. It hasn't worked in the past 4 years.
Frank Gore may be or is the best player on the team....but it is a privilege to play for such a prestige franchise like our beloved 49ers...sadly today we r not what we were once before....

another great HOF RB by the name of Barry Sanders can also make the same argument for playing for the Lions....

Coaches make that decision, not the players.

Get a good coach... problem solved.

Agree we need more talent around gore. R. Craig was amazing but we had guys like steve, joe, tom,jerry,clark, and many others around him to make them great and the coaching and the time which gore doesn't have.

Just give us a great coach and an average QB and we're contenders. FoRealz.
I'm going to get roasted for this, but it needs to be said: Gore is a great runner and a true hard-nosed football player. He wasn't a good blocker when he joined the team, but through hard work he made himself into one of the best. I've loved watching him, and the yardage he makes against stacked boxes is amazing!

But sometimes there is a reason players don't ever get to play with a winner. This was brought up a couple years ago and no one believed; now it was brought up by a Bucs' player this week: Gore tips the plays.

Maybe that has something to do with why he has to run with the odds stacked so highly against him.

As good as Gore is, I'll take a Roger Craig any day. He was an outstanding runner, a good blocker, a great receiver, and HE WON!

I'd take Ricky Waters over both of those guys. To bad we had another idiot GM who did not resign him.

It's like dog years for running backs. He may be only 27 but it might as well be 31. It's well known that running backs only last 8 years in the NFL if they're lucky.

I'm not blaming Frank but I wouldn't mind some fresh ideas as well as fresh legs. There is no other option than Frank with this staff. Running games are not as essential as they used to be to win in today's NFL.

He's a great player but I'm tired of watching this movie.

Gore fits the scheme of this staff. Power running game.

I dont know man. G.Heart was pretty dam good. Not only could he hit the hole, but he had speed. If he doesn't go down in the playoffs we would have 6 rings..

No, it isn't. Every player in the NFL is different. Some make it longer than others. You base your decisions on what you see on the field, not some statistic. When a running back has "lost a step" it becomes obvious. Frank Gore has not lost a step. Even when a running back does "lose a step" they can still have an important role on a team. Age doesn't matter, it's the play on the field that matters.

If you aren't blaming Frank Gore and you are blaming the coaching staff, then you might want to consider the fact that it's highly unlikely this coaching staff will be here next season. Getting rid of Frank Gore is not the solution. It would hurt us, not help us.

If you're tired of watching the movie, change the channel. The coaching staff are the writers and directors. Frank Gore is just one of a whole cast of actors. He just happens to be one of the only good actors in the movie.

Do you want us bench him? Cut him?

Just try and relax a little. Our coaching staff is terrible. Until they are gone, it doesn't matter who the running back is.

Gore would do good in any scheme. He was pretty explosive in the Martz Offense as well. The entire scheme is bogging everyone down though.
