He usually misses one game, maybe 2. He may be injured for 5 or 6 games, but he still plays and does well considering the ineptitude of the rest of the offense. People go overboard when they talk about his injuries, acting as if he misses 1/4 of the season every year. Last year was the only time he missed more than 2 games in any season since he became a starter and it was on a fluke injury. It's not as if his hip was a chronic issue leading up to the injury. Steven Jackson is more of a lock to miss 2-4 games a season, yet he managed to play every game last year.
People don't understand how valuable this guy is until he goes down. Even one half of a game seems
like an eternity without him. That's probably why people overdo it when speaking of his injuries.
I agree 121%....just wait until gore is done for good...ie..retired or traded...then the haters on the board will realize gore is easily, yes easily, a top 5 overall back in this league...with a team that in all honesty has been run like a college team since he has been on this team..gore has produced in all phases since the day he bcame a starter.
We were spoiled as fans at the qb position for years, now look at us...granted rb is not as important as the qb position...BUT without gore we would have won less games than we have of he was not part of this team!!!!
Gore>1400! Put it on the board!!! CHAMPIONSHIP!!!!!
