Weekend mail call:Jeff from Redmond, Oregon, wants to know if I think Frank Gore could get 200-plus carries this season.Bill Williamson: Right now, I'd probably guess Gore would get about 220 carries. The 49ers are paying him $6.4 million, so they think he can still help, even though he is 31 and is entering the final year of his contract. Rookie Carlos Hyde and Marcus Lattimore, if he can stay healthy, will take carries. But Gore is still Gore.
