I was one of those advocating getting rid of Gore after last year (Walsh philosophy of cutting a guy a year too early rather than a year too late), because he looked old and slow. I was dead wrong though, and so are you. He's running as well as he ever has in this rotation and worse case, should be allowed to play out his contract next year...and I wouldn't be mad if we extended him a few more years under a cap-friendly contract.
Bottom line, he's still one of the best all-around backs in the league. Not to mention, he's the heart and soul of the team so cutting him would be a mistake of massive proportions.
Yes. I do fancy drafting a center, though. And let the three of them battle it out in the preseason. That being said the best O lines tend to be stable O lines .
If the team doesn't use a high pick on a center, we can safely assume they like Kilgore or even possibly Looney as an eventual replacement for Goodwin. Call it the "Alex Boone" approach to solving o-line problems (the answer might already be in-house).
