Re: the forty niners

LT is a lot faster than Gore, cuts quicker, and is better goalline back and much better at ball security. Gore is a much more powerful runner though and picks up the blitz better. Both catch the ball out of the backfield extremely well.

LT is the better back but I don't think it is by as big a margin as most think.

You have officially documented that you are insane.

LT is on a planet all his own right now.

Don't even bother trying to compare anyone with him, especially Gore. Yeah he's having a good season, but it's one season man, calm down just a bit.

I don't get your point. LT is overall the better back but he doesn't do everything better. I think my post acknowledged that.

You put Frank Gore in the same sentence as LT. To top that, you can't fathom which of your statements brought my comment.

Hell, pick one. (I am paraphrasing).

Frank Gore is closer to LT than people think.

Frank Gore has the same ability as Emmitt Smith.

You are insane.

Okay so just putting the too players in the same sentence is insane? I'm just saying the general public probably doesn't realize how good Gore is in relation to how good LT is. LT is the better player but Gore does some things much better just like LT does some things much better than Gore (see in my post the specifics). Do you disagree that there are some things Gore is better at?

Re: the forty niners

Just chill with comparing Gore and LT. You're way ahead of yourself. Let's talk in 3-5 years and see if he's still putting up monster numbers.

Why? Is there anything wrong with what i said? Why am I "ahead of myself" by comparing the two?

Re: the forty niners

It's like comparing Alex Smith and Peyton Manning.

They're not even in the same conversation.

Re: the forty niners

LT is a better blocker, passer, runner on the outside, runner on the inside, a much better receiver, fumbles a whole lot less, has been extremely consistent over 6 years compared to one good year, and is insanely more productive at putting points on the board and his team on his back when they need him. so in what ways is Gore better? no one is playing at LT's level at the running back position right now. I appreciate u being all about your team and it's players but that's pure crazy talk even mentioning LT and Gore in the same sentence at this point of their respective careers.

I disagree. "Not being in the same conversation" would mean that LT does everything way better than Gore and that isn't true.

LT and Gore are both great backs, but they are completely different.

LT's game is based off of his ridiculous speed and cutting ability. Gore's game is based off of equally ridiculous power and ability to shake tackles.

Gore doesn't have the speed to get to the outside edge and gone nearly instantaneously like LT but on the other hand LT doesn't have the lower body strength to run through tackles and push piles all game like Gore does. Both great backs with very different styles.

Re: the forty niners

This guy has no grip on reality. Just drop it like I did.

Conversing with Rexi will give you a headache.

Actually Gore is the better blocker IMO. I think LT actually missed a couple blocks that resulted in hits on Rivers last night where as Gore picked up Peterson and the other Hawks when they blitzed us on Thurs.

Gore is the better runner between the tackles because with LT if you can a good handle on him (not an easy task because of his speed and quickness) then he usually goes down. With Gore even if you do get a handle on him you're job isn't done becuase you still have the difficult task of actually tackling the guy.

Agreed that LT is better outside runner by a lot.

Both catch the ball very well with LT being better.
