But for the 3 injury reasons above and the pounding he's taken nobody would give you a lot. So it won't happen.
Pretty sure he will expire at 30 like most running backs do, so he has 1-2 decent years left. With year 7 of Alex Smith, and 2 years development for Kap, by the time this team hits contender potential Gore will be ready to retire or get limited carries. Why not get something for him, if you can. Trading him to a SB caliber team is not going to effect the pick you get, no one is going to trade a first or second for a high mileage running back pushing 30, unless they are ran by morons and those teams don't win Super Bowls.

This sentiment of having our great player win a super bowl with another team is just something I can't get behind. While I agree Gore deserves it, I am just blinded by homerism.
I hated seeing Rice in the Super Bowl with the Raiders and it made me sick watching Montana on the Chiefs. I realize they already had super bowls but still think watching Gore score for the Patriots or any other contender would just seem wrong to me.
Its funny I say this because I was cheering on the Jets because I wanted LT to win one, but find it so different when talking about our players.
This reminds me of some R-tard was saying that we should have traded Bryant Young to the Patriots so he could win a super bowl and that if we didnt agree we were racist because if we saw him on the street we'd call him the N word.
I think he got banned shortly after.
