I love Frank enough to buy an autographed helmet and he is everything you want in a football player but I agree with your statement. Its Lynch hands down.
No. I predicted Lynch could have an MVP type season with Seattle in 2012, and he did, nearly 1600 yards and a 5.0 average. Keep in mind though frank had a 4.7 average in his own right, and complete balled out in the post season.
BUT, this season their numbers are nearly identical. Both have a 4.2 average. They are within 40 yards of each other, and lynch only has 2 more TD's and they both have three fumbles. Gore has a long of 51, to lynches long of 43. Gore is hands down the better blocker though.
Lynch is also only 27 and in his prime.
It is not as night and day as you guys make it out to be. Lynch had a beastly season in 2012, no doubt, but gore out shined every RB in the post season, and this year they are nearly identical statistically, and one is three years younger.
