I think thats the most absured thing I've ever read on this site.

As far as Frank Gore...I don't know if I'd pull the Emmitt comparision just yet. Emmitt will be remembered predomanantly for his longevity, and Gore is a second year player. He's definately justified his 65th overall pick status though.

I'm not saying that Gore is a HOF'er or anything yet but I think that if he stays healthy over his career he definitely has the ability to do it. He's a special player.

Re: the forty niners

I love Frank Gore so much. The guy is just a monster, best RB we have ever had and will have Hearst's rushing record by the end of the season.

He's not the sharpest tool in the shed but I agree he's a promising young back.

The niners have some young guys, a good coach, and no where to go but up.

Re: the forty niners

I said it earlier in this thread, and I'll say it again. The Niners are 2-3 players away from a Super Bowl run.

since he has yet too prove anything I'd still but Roger Craig quite a bit before Gore as far as san fran rbs go.

Re: the forty niners

Alex Smith is coming on, but he's not a Super Bowl caliber QB just yet.

Haha I know. I doubt that Frank has ever read a book that didn't have things pop out of it.

As a pure runner I think Frank is superior to Roger. I think he is a better back, but we will see if he has the better career. Hopefully!

I agree. I hope the Alex I saw in the 4th QTR is the "real" Alex. He had been regressing lately before that so I hope this game is the end of that trend.

Give the guy some credit. He has over come a lot in his life. There are not too many guys walking around with a college degree that have a learning disability. Plus he over came two major knee injuries. I have mad respect for Frank Gore.

He has over came a lot. I mean he tore both ACL's, and he is this good? Holy christ. Now I really don't have to worry about him tearing them again. Gotta love "Da U" backs. Except Edge.

So Brunell pulling one game out of his ass makes him better than Andrew Walter?

Great analysis on Emmitt Smith. I made the same points 2 months ago except I pointed out that it is idiotic to compare Gore to Smith. Which it is.

Because of Gore's major injuries, his career numbers will not even approach Smith. He is great right now, in fact he just put up 25 in my fantasy semi-final but it is so stupid on many levels to compare him to the greatest rusher in history.
