Gore or Boldin?

Originally posted by WINiner:
We let gore play his final season. Maybe he will decide to retire afterward early. That way we can make a big deal about it and win the Super Bowl.

Unfortunately i just cant see frank fake crying like ray lewis did.
If I had to choose, I'd say keep Boldin. Kap needs receivers he trusts and that make plays for him more than he needs Gore to take the pressure off. I have this feeling that the 49ers will have both of them back next year though. I think Gore will need to restructure or sign a new contract though and I have a feeling he'd want to... if he reduced his pay it would help him and the 49ers sign players they need to win a Super Bowl.

When Frank Gore cries, those are real tears, dammit. And, as an extra bonus, Frank doesn't dress up in a Monopoly Man costume.

Gore is not done people. Yeah he's going to be 31, but he still is a top running back in the league. Still had over 1100 yards going against 8 men boxes.

That's what I'm saying. People have been saying he's done for the last 4 years. His game has never depended on speed. He's always been so great because of his tremendous vision and his ability to burst through the hole. He still has both of those. Also, he has never been the big physical bruiser that takes hit after hit and delivers the hits like a Marshawn Lynch or Adrian Peterson. His running style is very similar to Emmitt Smith, who played until he was 35.

Yup. We've heard the same thing for the last 5+ offseasons. "Gore is done". I don't think so. If there is one RB in the NFL who is built to be effective past age 30, it's him. As long as he has quick feet and vision, he'll be effective. Just don't expect any long TD runs.

I think people watch a younger Lynch and think, "geez, I wish Frank moved like that." Restructure the Tank, put in a true rotation with Lattimore, and resign Boldin. GO GET A SPEED RECEIVER.
Why do all the new posters with <100 posts say Frank goes? Weird.

Restructure and he stays. He's still special. He helps.

Just because his best days are behind him doesn't mean good days aren't ahead.
First off, the FO will not get rid of Gore so this subject is moot. I think Frank re-negotiates and walks Lattimore down the isle. Boldin will have to be workable and get a 2 year deal for about 9M.
