Gore is now surrounded by like-minded teammates â" players who are talented and dedicated. That wasn't the case when he first became a starter seven seasons ago. After a galling loss, he ventured into the players' parking lot and saw some of his teammates laughing and joking. Gore immediately started crying and openly wondered what kind of team he was on.
I can't even imagine those years without Gore. He's the heart and soul of this football team.

Disability, torn knees, broken hip, s**tty coaches, terrible offenses, and yet this guy still couldn't be stopped. I love Gore.

Current, it's Frank of course. Most posters have said it before: opted for a college that already had Portis AND McGahee active instead of walking into a starter's job anywhere else; two torn knees; learning disability; drafted by the most dysfunctional NFL franchise at the time not named the Raiders; cried real tears after seeing his team mates goof around after a loss; sent against brick walls of 8-man fronts by the likes of Jimmy Raye again and again; played for terrible teams most of his career without a complaint; more injuries; got us within 6 yards of a trophy ; an absolutely SUPREME blocker in addition to his running - watching him flatten blitzers in replays is a delight; never got into altercations outside strip clubs/broke bottles on team mates' heads/drove into trees while bombed out of his box.
One of the best football players in the NFL and a lot of football people don't even realize how special of a player and man Frank Gore is. It makes me sick
