Is frank gore done?

Really? So what was the holdout all about?

Not done yet. He needs help from the o-line, the play calling, and the passing game to at least get some room to run. If you watch the game tape, Gore still does something valuable that usually goes unnoticed.........blitz pickup. He crushed a couple blitzers in pass protection last week.

Two bad games are not enough to write him off yet.

The passing game was working early, yet Gore still went nowhere. I hope that he isn't done yet and still pin the blame on the OL for the lack of offensive production, but so far it's very concerning.

Even the opposition's coach admires and respects Gore's efforts out there , the last two games the defenses were designed to stop Gore and only Gore , and our OL helped them be successful. Personally I am not worried about Gore but more concerned with how long it will take Harbaugh and Roman to fix the OL and then call the plays that will put the nail in the coffin with the eight man fronts. I'll just add that if they throw the ball to Gore and he is still ineffectual and goes down easy then I would join this lynching mob. J/K JMHO

Carry on with Gore has lost a step

If defenses are respecting Gore by stacking the box, then they're relying on mainly man coverage on our receivers. Why isn't that taken advantage of?

There's no fixing of the OL needed if you think about it....utilize 3 and 5 step drops and get the ball out to guys in single coverage.

IMO, Drew Rosenhaus is to blame for Gore's holdout. Gore just wanted some security. Its not like he held out for big money. Also, wasnt his holdout short lived?

Gore's holdout was long enough for us to figure out that Kendall Hunter was pretty good. It was also long enough to keep him out of camp for a significant period of time with a shortened training schedule. In other words, with short prep time, it was one the worst holdouts in terms of timing. Missing a week was like missing two weeks.

he missed 4 days, Alex SMith missed more practices than Gore

He also missed an exhibition game as well...which Alex did not.
In any case, I asked what the holdout was all about....not how much time he actually missed because of it. No one's answered that. Blaming the agent is the epitome of lame....you could do that for any player who stages a work stoppage.

No one blamed Crabs' agent when he held out...they blamed Crabs. Why the double standard for Gore?

He obviously ended the holdout when he was assured by the front office that he would get a deal. So how does the logic work that Gore is not about getting paid?

I remember Gore showing up around the time free agents (Alex Smith) were able to sign and report. There is no denying Gore has always been a team player. He has never shown any evidence of being a money first type of guy.

He didnt miss an exhibition game due to his holdout. The coaches held him out of the game to get a look at Dixon and Hunter with the first team

Except for the holdout, of course. No evidence otherwise....you're right on the money.

Of course its about the money, but its not like he was holding out for AP money. He basically got the same contract he did when we originally extended his contract, he wanted the money but also the security of a mutli year deal

Crabtree was holding out for money he thought he deserved. HE thought he deserved to be paid Heyward Bay money. I think I answered your question. Gore wanted security for the rest of his career. I think Gore has proven that he deserves the money. Crabtree has yet to show us he deserves first round money.

Why is blaming your agent lame? He is paid to secure your financial status for the rest of your life. I would argue that Gore went against Drew's advice.
