Not to pick at old scars, but that's the thing I still don't get. Why did we demolish them with the run game in the first half, then turn an about face and try to be the Saints in the second half? Full on coaching disaster, if you ask me. Lesson learned, I hope.
Point being, Mr. Gore is not to be trifled with.
Sure he's in the final phase of his career, and sure it's okay to aggressively work up options for the next guy that'll play his position--I wasn't about to write "replacement." But the fact of the matter is this: Frank Gore is one of the ten best running backs on earth, likely top five because he's a mean SOB that really wants a ring. He'll be be a man possessed next year, even by Frank Gore standards.
