Wow... That won't be the case this year with Bell entering the AFCE.

Maybe, maybe not.   Bell was out all of last year and the Steelers running game didn't miss a beat.

I don’t disagree with you in principle, but the Steelers did take a pretty big step back offensively without Bell. 

 

They lost 106 carries and 318 yards on the ground and 30 catches and 168 yards in the air going from Bell to Connors. The short TDs were there for Connors though. 

 

I think Bell’s antics lead us to forget just how good he was in that Steelers offense.

I don't know how anyone can watch the video of Gore with his Bills helmet on from today, walking down the hall at One Bills Drive, looking ready to play right now if they asked him, and NOT be fired up about this signing. "I become a different person when I put on this helmet".

As Beane said, dude is intense. No other way to make it to age 36 at the running back position and still be so good. Intensity, love of the game, dedication.

He'll be a fan favorite in no time.

I am all about trying to get Frank the 522 rushing yards needed to surpass Barry freaking Sanders. We should really get behind this...knowing it's prob his last year.

Now re-programming my talking Rick Jeanneret can opener to say, "GOOOOOOOORRRREEEE   jUSSSSSSSSSSSSS"  when Frank scores his first TD, as I'm searching for my Bills Coolzie.

Great! You have a crystal ball! Can you tell me the lottery numbers?

 

I don't have a crystal ball, but you've obviously got crystal meth thinking Gore will be anything but a placeholder at RB.

 

As for Lotto numbers, -Ask Beane... He's accomplished at picking random things.

Just watched about 30 min of Frank Gore highlights. The dude is such a pure runner. Low pad level, has great patience, vision and balance. I felt like I was watching a poem being written a word by word.

I still expect the Bills to draft a RB on the second or third day. Whoever it is will get one hell of an education behind Shady and Gore.

I have a feeling we end up with that RB from Penn State. He shouldn’t get over drafted and I feel like the owners connection to PSU. No actual reason for me to think this, I just have a guy feeling. Every time I see anything related to the RBs coming out, I get the feeling he will be in Buffalo.

I was thinking the same thing. Imagine getting to learn behind these 2 for a season? Wow.

I think it will be great for Shady and Ivory to have a veteran presence in the RB room.  Especially a future hall of famer who guide them and be a role model.

billsb_logo.gif Bills sign RB Frank Gore (1 year, $2.5 million): A- Grade 
One of the several things the Bills should focus on this offseason is finding a potential successor for LeSean McCoy. Frank Gore obviously isn't it... or is he? The way Gore has been playing well into his mid-30s, you can't count anything out! 

In all seriousness, this seems like a very good signing. It's cheap and comes with no risk, and it also fills a need. McCoy was frequently injured last year, and he wasn't even that effective when he was on the field, averaging a meager 3.2 yards per carry. Gore, on the other hand, did well for a 35-year-old in 2018, averaging 4.6 yards per clip. I know YPC numbers are often misleading, but Gore was solid for a Miami team that didn't have the best offensive line. He can be a capable insurance policy for McCoy at a cheap price.

This is true. Potent offensive lines can certainly distort analysis of a running back, and his kill you with patience style of attack was certainly elevated by the likes of Pouncey, DeCastro, and company.  Even so, I still don't think you can argue he's at a bare minimum a top-ten back, which no other team in the AFC could argue at this point, given Shady's apparent decline.

People keep whining about Gore without mentioning that he still produced at a high level last year. 

A backfield featuring two probable future HOFers in Gore and McCoy.

Should help from an offensive leadership standpoint, too.

Gore is a for sure.McCoy is right on the margin.

Best third down back The Bills since Rob Riddick or perhaps Sam Gash.

Not so fast. I'd like to see Shady behind a much improved offensive line this year before I start declaring that he has slowed down AT ALL.

I predict that the combination of improved blocking, John Brown and Foster keeping defenses honest, a chip on Shady's shoulder after his worst year as a pro, and the added motivation of his buddy Gore being in town, will all add up to an awesome year from LeSean McCoy. I don't think he's lost a step at all.

Time will tell!

Same here.  I don't think he's done for a few more years.  He wasn't any slower last year.  He had no where to go most plays.  It was horrible.

In that perspective , its kind of a   wow signing. makes one think they are going to draft the future RB this year.
That is a lot of panache in one room

wow!   I think Sanders played for a few less seasons than Gore has, but that’s still pretty cool. Hopefully he does it at The Ralph!
