Popular veteran player Harbaugh will get rid of

My money says its gonna be Gore.

To me Gore just doesn't have that team first attitude, he seems very concerned with his stats more then he does about the overall team success.

Here is how its probably gonna go down. Gore meets with Harbaugh: Harbaugh tells Gore that he is only gonna get about 50% of the carries because Harbaugh believes in the running back by committee approach. Gore gets pissed and tells Harbaugh to kick rocks, and Gore ends up getting traded for a mid round pick.

who do you think its gonna be ???

are you smoking dude?!?!

Are you f**king kidding me?

God damn NinerTalk....jesus f**king christ.

Yeah..we're gonna get rid of the MAIN PART of our offense.

Get a clue.

Really Sus...Really?

Just my opinion bro, I may be wrong but its something to talk about.

It's stupid to talk about! GORE is our BEST player, ON & OFF the field!

did you know that Patrick Willis plays for the 49ers........

OMG!!!!!!!!!! I can't talk to this guy! haha P-Willy is THE MAN! but we don't WIN unless we score on Offense, so GORE is a lil more important. and NOTHING AGAINST P-Willy! cause this D would be NOTHING without HIM!
josh morgan joe nedny parys
Tedd Ginn may be a possibility. This offense isn't about specialists.
I've really had it with all the anti-Gore talk this past few days. All this s**t is speculation.

If Harbaugh wants to have the best first year as possible, Gore would help that. I'll cringe if Dixon, Westbrook, or some other, less quality back is the starter next year. Especially with out QB and OL situation.
Somehow, I have a hard time imagining a new head coach thinking it would be a good idea to start off his job by cutting some of the better players that are still under contract like Frank Gore. Wouldn't that kind of make things harder on himself?

So let me get this straight....

Gore (Pro-Bowler) is a "me-me guy" and needs to go.

Alex (pathetic career) is a "nice guy" and should be retained.

Now I understand. Results mean nothing to a lot of posters....they just want a team of nice guys.

Also, to say Gore's not a team guy is completely pathetic and you should contemplate rooting for another team. I have never seen him give up. I have never seen him throw teammates under the bus. The guy is a warrior...and it sickens me that people don't appreciate that.

Actually Sus hated Alex too.

I think Harbaugh should be able to use Gore pretty well. Gore/Westbrook/Dixon 3 headed monster in 2011 FTW!!!!!!!!!
all the people who want gore gone who do u want to play rb then

I'm all for trading Gore if we can get a 1st/2nd round pick for him.

I thought this was a serious thread?

Yes.

Yep.

But Westbrook and Dixon are better fits for the WCO.

I don't get the man love on the WZ for Gore, I really don't. Yes the guy is a great talent and he's been an amazing player for us, but teams that build their offense around a RB rarely win Super Bowls. Plus these days it's becoming even increasingly more uncommon to have a "feature" back because of injuries. With Gore's unwillingness to share time with other RB's, he is really only effective when he's the offensive focus.

If our goal is to return to the WCO and a philosophy similar to Walsh's, then we should expect and want our RB to be similar to RB's of that era. The Niners' best teams always had multiple RB's who found success in the offense, and that was mainly out of the backfield. It was pretty rare to have one break 1,000 yards; Roger Craig being the exception. And Frank Gore is no Roger Craig...

Really? REALLY?????

That was all SING by design!

- 98

Sing wasn't the coach all of the years that Gore was here. It's been documented numerous times (quotes from players and coaches) that Gore "never wants to leave the field." I suppose one could speculate that is a good thing (ie a guy is a warrior and wants to contribute) but I don't see it that way. I'll stand by my OPINION that I THINK Gore is selfish and wants his stats. I don't have the time to find the links, again just stating an opinion.

Setting all that aside, he is getting older and the injuries are catching up. We all know if Walsh was the coach that he'd be gone, as Walsh was notorious for letting players go a year or two early as that would allow him to get some value back. If we trade Gore now we might get a late 2nd or 3rd round pick. If we wait any longer we probably won't get anything. If we do keep him I certainly hope that Harbaugh can convince him that a reduced role is in his and the team's best interests.
