I love Gore as my RB3/flex this year!

I also have to love having Willie Parker and Thomas Jones as #4 and 5!

I've said it earlier in the thread...Gore is a good running back. But he'll be pushing it on SF to finish in the top-10. He may make it, he may not, but he's not a guaranteed top-10 back even if he stays healthy (which is another big question mark). If SF gets down by too much they're going to have to pass and while Gore's a good pass catching rb I'd imagine he'd be the outlet as opposed to the primary target. Bryant, Battle, Davis and others will get their's as well so unless the SF defense finds a way to stop the other teams Gore won't be running the football enough to stay in the top-10 consistantly.


hey jordan was a top 10 back last year in that norv turner backed oakland offense. basically oakland and san fran have flip flopped offenses from last year.

norv turner is the key here. and with the weapons san fran has i see no reason why gore isnt a top ten back from here on out.

I was just offered Owens for Gore straight up. I am seriously considering it. Would you do it?

first off, anyone who still thinks "i dont wanna play a SF player ever week" is not going to benefit, get that out of your head, that was last year...this year that teams oakland...gore, bryant, and smith are good enough to start every week....

secondly, frank gore has ALWAYS been a solid back, just been healthy for the first time...he was on the same team as portis and mcgahee, or should i say the same backfield, and we see how they turned out...he has a ceiling as high as those 2 do, id start gore over mcgahee this year if i had him...


you have to start gore even in tough match ups...or else face him putting up great numbers again on your bench

That is exactly the reason why I wouldn't trade him. He is not in a RBBC. He is the center of that offense. He'll be in there on the goal line. He'll be in there on 3rd down. He'll be in there when they are winning. He'll be in there when they are losing. A lot of this game we play is about opportunity.

Have faith in Norv Turner. He's made gold out of almost every starting RB in his system.

RB: Barber, Cadillac, Gore, T. Bell, Maroney

WR: Ward, DJax, TJ Housh, Clayton, Galloway

So the trade would seriously bolster my WRs if/when Owens ever gets healthy, but cost me some RB depth.

Hmmm, maybe I shouldn't do it.


yea wrong forum.
