As a Canes fan...when Portis said Gore was the best of the three RB's (Gore, Portis, & McGahee) it's so true. While the other two were great too Gore was a different back before he got injured in college. Honestly, I did think he'd ever be able to come back and be successful but he turned out to be one the the best RB's on the 2000's.
I do still think about how good he'd be if hadn't had both knees restructured.
There is good news and bad news in that. The bad news is it clearly hurt Gore's stock in the draft. The good news is because of it, we snagged him in the 3rd. No way we get Gore if he didn't get injured, unless we picked him up over Alex Smith.....
