No issues with your post. Good post.

I'm still wary about his recent injury history (ankle, hip) but not enough to feel that this deal is unreasonable.

Yeah, seen that thread... someone was excited. P.S. Can you guys tell I had confidence in Gore? I came here Jan of 05 and made this account before his second season. Only seeing his rookie year but I loved the way he ran and played. Then again my name back in 04 on the 9ers.com board was 49ers_81+85... (Lloyd and Woods). Too bad we didn't know the guy was thinking about fishing every time he stepped on the field.

Lloyd and Woods LOL

looks like lloyd has matured 1000x since he was a niner

I'm still pissed Woods turned out to be a huge bust. I had such high expectations for him.

Guy made like 3 of the top 5-10 catches I have ever seen but was so inconsistent. He was worried about being a rapper as well. We got a 3rd and 4th from the Redskins, he didn't do much for them or Chicago but is really doing well with Orton in the spread. He is a good deep guy. As for Woods I think he had the talent but not the heart.
Let me clarify that. Had a different account from Jan 05 to August of 06 ( I think 49ers_98 or Peterson_98?). Changed to Gore_21 while only seeing him his rookie season but like I said he looked special to me. (No pun intended with his IQ).

Congratulions to you Gore 21. You must be really excited. Have a monster year, now.
This is pretty good news...like others have mentioned we got our main weapon on offense locked up...and it diddn't hurt the wallet too bad..bravo to the FO on this one
Pretty much exactly the deal I had hoped for. Not too expensive or long. But a good enough deal to make him happy and show players we take care of guys who help the organization.

And, I don't have to worry about Gore holding out and messing up my fantasy team.

I smell Mass E-mail, Part II.

Nice job, Baalke. Way to piss off your best offensive player. Genius strikes again.

Waiting for MadDog to join the party.

he joined briefly, and in true MadDog form, contradicted himself, so necessary is his crusade against Baalke.

Originally he said, "Management is cheap."

After Gore signed, he said, in effect, "They gave Ray MacDonald too much money, so they might as well give Gore too much money too."
I'm kind of embarrassed for him, but you know sometimes there's just nothing you can do. Would be nice if we could hold some type of webzone intervention for him haha. He is presumably a grown man and there is just some basic traits that should have been developed by now, unfortunately that hasn't happened and the person he portrays is straight embarrassing for somebody who thinks they are that smart.
So how much. This is one if my let peeves of the new uncluttered zone. This is big news deserving of its own thread. Instead edit the title and force someone to filter through meaningless posts to try and find the info.

I just ignore him until around March or so.
Glad it was taking care of. Clearly he wanted to stay but wanted security. He obviously wasn't trying to be greedy based on the modest contract numbers. Well deserved.

We just dumped $20 million in the lap of Ray McDonald, so I guess in Niner Dollars $21 million for Gore is a bargain.

Gore has been one of the great, classy guys in recent 49ers history. He has stuck with this ridiculous team throughout his career. Gore has never played in a playoff game, but always gave best effort. Although I don't believe this is a move that improves the team (since he was already on it), since we weren't going to spend the cap money on difference-making free agents, we might as well give it to the best players already on our roster.

Good for you, Frank.

Just a little context for those interested

McDonald: Five-year, $20 million contract. The deal contains $7 million guaranteed.

Gore: Four-year, $25.9 million contract. The deal contains $13.5 million guaranteed

And glad they didn't have to break the bank, very fair extension.
