I love frank, and his heart, and his vision are unparalleled. But he definitely does not have the legs to finish a long run anymore. Hunter probably scores if he takes that same hand off and gets that same blocking.
No he most certainly does NOT! Don't get carried away. Hunter ran behind the same line Frank did yet he wasn't popping big runs and its because he doesn't have the patience or the vision Frank has. NOT EVEN CLOSE! If he gets the same blocking, same play, I'd bet he still would not have gotten into the secondary. Finding that crease is what Frank does best. Frank waits until the last second for that hole to open and explodes through it. Hunter plows into the back of his own man half the time or is too quick to search out contact and go down before hitting the second level. Frank makes something from nothing. Hunter does not. Can't even believe we're comparing the two as though there is anything Hunter can do that Frank can not. GET REAL!
I'm not comparing the two. Gore is a better running back even at this stage of his career.
I said, ON THAT PLAY, hunter would have scored. Watch the replay, the hole was huge. Hunter would have hit the hole, but had the legs to take it all the way (probably to the left corner of the end zone). Of course this is my opinion.
Don't misunderstand what I said in my first post. Frank's heart and vision are UNPARALLELED
