Importance of Gore

Another successful Hurricane. Amazing what he's still doing at his age 👍

 

One of my friends who went to the U pointed out that Gore was at Miami with our QB coach Ken Dorsey when they won a National Championship. Thought that was a cool connection to have across different levels of our offensive staff.

But this past week a number of posters said Gore was finished.  One stated that his legs are gone and he should hang it up.  So today's performance was clearly illusory.  His statistics can't be anything other than fake news.

True.  But it would have been nice to have Shady available, especially with Singletary sidelined indefinitely.

 

And this was the problem.  The coaches didn't think Shady would be happy as the #3 back.

This is true. But, I think the combo of Gore/Motor/Yeldon is a pretty good trio-- Yeldon for his receiving ability. Kinda wish we had gone with Perry over Yeldon, though.

Murphy was better than Yeldon. Yeldon plays way to softly. Very tentative runner, and while he may have talent as a receiving option, again his weakness show like on the one he dropped yesterday when he pulled up because he was going get hit. No toughness to his game. He would make a great flag football player.

Something I like. Very few negative plays. Always seems to get something. Loved Shady but he sprinked in a lot of -3 and -5 yard plays with his positive yards.  Gore doing what he was brought here to do. Need to get the other guy back though.

As long as they don't rush Singletary back.  Hamstrings can become chronic.

So true! Just ask Shady!

A very Emmitt Smith-esque career. Impressive longevity. He has a chance to catch Walter Payton if he somehow keeps it up the next two seasons. 

 

I have not seen Gore once fake an injury to give offense a break from attacking defense.  The announcers would say something like he would be out for the game, he'd take a play off and be back in with talk how he was such a warrior.

Emmitt Smith deserved an Emmy daytime lifetime achievement award for his performances.

I'm happy for Shady in KC but I'm much happier with the Gore-Singletary tandem. To me Gore looks more effective than 2018 McCoy.

Ask the tacklers he routinely drives backwards about his legs.

How dare he mix some two yard runs in with all those nine yard rushes!!!!

 

Guy averaged 5.4 ypc and scored the winning TD, but clearly he’s not good enough.  😄

 

Frankly if the Bills had taken a penalty or two in redzone like they did previous game Frank could have raised his yards per carry.

For anyone who wants to keep track, after today, Gore needs another 358 yards to pass Barry Sanders for the third most rushing yards in NFL history.

This is an incredible achievement. I confess to having under appreciated this guy.

He had some nice plays today. I still think they need better from him. Too many 2 yard runs.

 

I love that he doesn’t have negative runs though, we seem to be in solid situations. I would like to see Singletary get 60% of the carries though.

I think Gore's powerful build(similar to Emmit's) has kept him going for so long. At 36 he still is 70% of what he was in his prime--which is amazing.

If only he could have played behind the line that over rated Cowboy played behind.

They are probably the same ones complimenting him this week.😎

It's funny but refreshing seeing fans appreciating Frank Gore for the variety of things he does to help the team............after years of people selectively ignoring the fact that McCoy was only contributing if and when he was gaining yardage with the ball........and hadn't even done that well in two years.

Cool to see the hate has chilled out a bit on Gore. Who else but Gore still punishes teams in the 4th quarter? And at 36 nonetheless, there truly isn't a back like him in the NFL. Ingram sort of but not really? Derrick Henry, but typically only for like half the season since you can always count on him to just disappear from multiple games? Gore is a legend - him and a healthy Singletary are going to be a deadly combo.

 

Agree with the Yeldon whiff, though. Yuck. If he touches the ball 10 times you're almost guaranteed a fumble.

Gore can do this another 4 or 5 seasons and take down Emmitt Smith’s all time rush record provided we have a healthy #1. The guy is fundamentally awesome.

Kyle Brandt was on with Murphy and Tasker yesterday and had an interesting take on Gore, saying that if he continues to help the Bills win, this might be the year that truly helps him make the HOF.  His point was that he's been considered an "aggregator" (I think that means just a guy who's  accumulated great stats simply by playing forever) and his role this year could take him out of that category by showcasing him as a key contributor to the team's success.  I think he has a point there.

Yeldon needs to earn his paycheck this week. Passes to the RB could be an important element of Daboll’s game plan against (currently) the best D in the NFL.

Only thing I would have done differently is kept Murphy over Yeldon.  Gore is a warrior.

Yes he does.  I know many think Yeldon is a fumbling machine (not saying you do or don't) but it's not really so.

In his career he has had 646 touches for 3,223 yards / 12 TDs / 5.0 yards per touch / 6 fumbles.

His fumble last week was bad, he needs to not have any this Sunday.

 

IF Devin is a no go, TJ has to perform well.
