Did Singletary literally run Frank into the ground?

No, Sing didn't "run him into the ground."

People are also taking the "leading in % of offensive yards thing" WAY TOO seriously.

You guys realize that this is because a) we don't have a lot of offensive yards to begin with and b) our QB situation has been horrible.

Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, Peyton Hillis, Chris Johnson, etc. all have more touches than Gore this year.

It is Mike Nolan's fault.

THIS
Frank Gore will go down as one of the best RB's in the NFL to never see a playoff game.

No frank gore ran himself into ground the reason i say that is because singletary let frank gore decide when to come out of the game. All season frank gore never wants to come out of the game and this is the result. If singletary at fault for frank gore injury its because he gave frank too much say so in how the reps are divided between himself and westbrook and dixon. I have known all year based on anthony dixon preseason production and brian westbrooks resume that we had good depth behind frank gore but we never used it until last night to the tune of 250 yrds rushing. Now we will see what we have behind gore last 5 games of the season hope the fresh legs of westbrook and dixon can carry us into playoffs

Acccck, this thread is BS. All this feigned anger is enough to make me wanna barf.

I see the failed logic here. Gore carried for a million times and nobody really gives a s**t...maybe a little half hearted squawk here and there from a very few people....now he carries for a million+1 and gets hurt and now all of a sudden he's been run into the ground and it's livid outrage about how he was done so wrong.


Singletary, is that you?

Not even. Singletary has enough s**t on himself to be axed without this. I ain't sticking up for Singletary, in the least. I hope he is gone soon. All that aside, this thread is a reach, a very big reach. Now, I am stepping out of this developing quagmire, which appears to have the potential to outdo an AS thread.

Run, run, pass, punt. 50% of our plays included Frank Gore.

This wasn't an emotional thread. Singletary likes to run the ball and up the middle at that. Gore was the center of his game plan. Does it not make sense that Gore's usage finally caught up with him?

Does it not make sense that Gore has been injured throughout his career? The dude was passed on by the entire NFL for 2+ full rounds of the draft because of his prevalence to injury. He's been injured before Sing even showed up in the plan. He's been run run run by all sorts of coaches on this team. Were is the outrage about Norv, Hostler, Martz...everyone of those guys ran him and ran him some more, and they all knew about his propensity to injury. Nobody complained then, nobody complained when he ran his ass off for 1600 yards did they? Why...what an outrage...they should have limited him to 1000 yards and sat him on the bench when he reached it!!!! Now tell me, how would that have gone down with the fans and player's?

Hello fans and players: "Ummm, we know that Frank gives us the best chance to win, but we are going to bench him, or change the game plan to not include him so much because he has 1000 yards, and 1600+ yards would really run him into the ground in the future. We need to do this, even if it means we lose more games than we would if we didn't."


It doesn't work the way you guys are trying to rationalize it. Not a f**king chance in hell would YOU, ME, or anyone else put up with keeping our best chance of winning on the bench.

What's the alternative to Frank? An AS or TS led spread offense? HA HA HA...I'm sure other teams would be trembling in their boots at that.

We have never had a balanced attack since Frank has been here. Never, ever. The reason why we have not is 99% because we have had s**tty QB play for years, s**tty oline play for years and s**tty (up until last year) receiving corps to throw to. And that is the reason why Frank has ran his ass off, not a damn thing to do with anything other than that too.

So lets call a spade a goddamn spade here....the reason Frank has ran his ass off is because he was the best chance we had to win and the reason he was the best chance is because the passing offense has sucked, sucked, sucked and majorly f**king sucked year after year after year regardless of who was coaching. Holy macaroni revelations,...Frank could have got more help from a Pop Warner team over those years.

So let me ask you, were you willing, all the these years, to sit back and watch the epically disgusting passing attack take the majority of the game plan, week after week? Were you willing to forfeit games won over these years just so Frank would run less?


Not a chance in hell. And this is why this thread is complete BS, because barely a one of you guys proposing this theory would have been happy about anything other than playing the player's who gave us the best to chance to win, and getting their ass involved in the game as much as possible.....and that player has been Frank. Funny, all for it for a million carries, but now all of a sudden it's an outrage at a million+1.

THIS.......well said, no finger pointing allowed in this situation...........the end.......

Personally, i think that we'll be fine w/o Gore.. the guy has always been an injury prone.. remember that he was often injured at the "U"... the guy just cant stay healthy...

i for one, would often wonder why we signed Westbrooks and draft Dixon if we were just gonna sit them on the bench.. we could have a similar back field like the panthers (Williams and Stewart) had we been using Dixon.. the guy is very talented.. it just makes you wonder about the decisions of this coaching staff... Giving Westbrooks $2 million just to handle the balls 10x (before last nite) was pure dumb!!

Anyhow, i also believe that Gore presence hurts this team cause the QBs always relying on him.. now that he'll be sittin down, watch our team to play with more balance.. sure we'll miss Gore's talent, but some else will step up..

It's not like Westbrook hasn't been an injury waiting to happen. The guy has a HUGE case of rattlebrains.

I could see the coaches taking an "ace in the hole" approach, holding back Westbrook as long as possible as an insurance policy towards the end of the season due to his rattlebrain propensity.

We will never know for sure if this was happening, but it may have been a very smart move to keep rattlebrains on the bench until such time as he was ABSOLUTELY needed.

My opinion starts with a "F" and ends with a "Y".

No, he didn't.
