I'd take that, but would Gore? and with all our draft picks, players hidden on IR and the practice squad, do we have room for farewell tours?

I got faith Gore could do us a Justin Smith type deal. Bump the agent

Hopefully, that IS good news. However, the fibula can be problematic. It does not get the same blood flow as the tibia (shin bone) and sometimes takes a long time to heal. Sometimes it never fully heals (vascular necrosis). So, not to be Debbie Downer, but lets hope this does not turn out to be like Garrison Hearst where it took two years to recover fully.
Hope he gives us a deal and stays. I don't think he was healthy this year.
I think he played his last game as a Niner. I love the guy, but he's more easily replaceable than the other guys who need to be signed.

How is everyone giving up on the guy so easy? He played hurt all year! Just last season he was one of the top guards in the league and now he's done? Come on.

He's still under contract so I think he'll play at least another year. Maybe his down year lowers his contract demands. Still, I think we should grab an G high this year to groom as his replacement in 2015.

I did not think think he was a FA, thought it was next year?
He'll be back. He played hurt all season long, wtf you guys expected from an injured player being hurt and still toughen up and played.
I bet none of you would be playing if you was in his situation.

He really needs to improve his pass blocking...
