Frank Gore HOF material?

RB's who aren't in the hall and have had better careers than Frank Gore thus far...

Fred Taylor
Curtis Martin
Edgerrin James
Ricky Waters
Warrick Dunn
Jamal Lewis
Corey Dillon
Eddie George
Shaun Alexander (sadly)
Tiki Barber (arguably)
Priest Holmes
Jerome Bettis
Terrell Davis (debatable)
Roger Craig

What Frank needs is more years, yards, TD's, and a ring. Otherwise, he'll be chllin' with these guys waiting to get in.
It would be great to see him make it. If we can score 2 rings before he retires I say his chances goes up big time.
I say no atm, in this era he would need 10,000+ yds rushing 80+ tds, the only way I can see him getting in, if he doesn't reach any of the plateau's I've mentioned, are if he does something memorable in a playoff game to get us to a SB or in a SB.

but he did have those injuries so hes not one of the best ever. hes awesome for us but the HOF wont even look at a RB who hasnt won a rushing title before. closest he came was being beaten by LT in 06 or 07 i believe. he was 5 yards away from 1700 yards too
No.

that would be a difficult speech to listen to
Needs 10000+ yards and a Super Bowl. Otherwise, no.

I dont think Roger Craig was better than Frank, in fact I think he's a product of Montana and Rice
http://www.pro-football-reference.com/leaders/rush_yds_career.htm Here is a link to the all time rushes after looking at this there are a lot of guys ahead of him who wouldn't make the hall of fame.
Nope! He'll be in the 49ers Hall of Fame but not the NFL Hall of Fame.

The only way Frank Gore is getting into the HOF is if he's punching tickets at the front door.........



Ok, too much....
not even close

what part of, "one of the best ever IF it WAS NOT for his knee injuries" did you not understand?
