People flip out all offseason because we don't make any big name acquisitions, now all the sudden we want to LET GO of one of the elite RB's in the NFL? Are you serious? So he wants more money, the guy earned it, and we have the cap space! Gore is the all-around package, and you will not find another like him on the market. The new kids look alright so far, but none of them is half of what Frank Gore is.
If Frank doesn't play for us, we should be happy to win 6 games.
He is not worth DeAngelo Williams money. DeAngelo Williams isn't worth DeAngelo Williams money. Gore is not worth crippling the team cap-wise for the next 3 or 4 years, especially given all the question marks at different positions.
If Frank does play for us, we should be happy to win 7 games. Great running backs don't make as big of a difference in the Win/Loss column as some think.
