Ricky's talent, and Franks heart!= World Beater!
Ricky was BIGGER and had better hands....
but Frank had more talent.
In high school, he ran for 2953 yards and 34 TDs....
...in one season.
Frank would have been a top 10 pick has he not ripped up both knees.
Ricky was more dynamic, a big play guy, with great hands, he could shake you or run you over, if he had half the head and heart of Frank Gore, he would be in the hall of fame.
The reality is guys with massive talent like Ricky come along more frequently than guys with great heart and determination like Frank. Frank has talent don't get me wrong, but he is not the tastes, or the shiftiest, or even the most powerful back in the NFL.
Frank's greatest natural talent is his vision, and patience, these attributes with Franks commitment are why I would rather have him than a guy like Ricky Watters.
Could you imagine Frank saying "For who for what?" I sure as hell can't.
