Importance of Gore

I agree, but I think the point was that we would be better off with McCoy over Yeldon, which I have to agree with, but who knows what Beane & McCoy discusses about his possible role this season. Seems to me he could have helped us. 

yes that was a point to be taken. ty

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.

context may apply. His fumbles may or may not have been in critical situations. but because perspective? it might be the case.

i think Yeldon and i think fumble. and he did just that. I yelled profanities, perhaps the same ones i yelled last time he fumbled for us.

 

good on McD to get him back in the game though. 
still not my choice for #3 or in this case #2 rb for the Bills

and perhaps a clause that Bills pay for them, as needed.

 if he wear them out ? incentive bonus : )

100% my pick for most important player outside Allen for the Bills this Sunday. 

 

I think this is going to be a gritty defensive struggle and if we can establish some run game and control ball/clock that's how the Bills will win.

May i suggest it will be gritty both sides of the ball.
I expect this game to be dirt dust and blood.

very much looking forward to this scrum

 

Go Bills !

Gore has been really good in pass protection too. Such a steady player.

He's the best complimentary RB we've had in a long time....

Gore was excellent.  Leadership.  Power.  Big runs.  Scored when we needed it. 

 

So ….  Why was he playing with a ripped shoe?  What was that all about? 

They said its an old shoe he's used since collage.  Apparently he has several pairs but that one was pretty much spent.

Thanks for this Yolo.  Gore's discipline in trusting his linemen and the scheme is really evident.  Hopefully, he's passing this onto Singletary.

When Gore signed here he was mainly looked at as a short yardage RB, Grind out the clock for the win RB. He still has great vision and can run with power but I can’t see him hitting a hole and taking it in for a long TD.

Gore is a pleasure to watch for me. He get more than what i see. he gets stuffed he gets two. Dude has some of the best vision pre and post snap.

 Such a joy to watch a master of his art in action.

 You kids might look for the big play and fireworks, that is for Singletary to show.

 Frank does his job so darned well and does it quietly with brutal finesse.

 

is there one guy you just know ? will never lose the ball to a fumble ?

Much respect for Mr Gore from me : )

Importance of Gore? He averaged 5.0 per carry again today. We don't have anyone else on the roster who can carry that load. The change of pace back Singletary today averaged 3.7 ypa on 7 carries - he is not, at this point, a high volume carries guy.

Gore was doing a LeVeon Bell imitation on some runs today, waiting, waiting, waiting before he drove forward. He's been so good. Singletary is not ready to be a workhorse.

Completely agree. And I have said this about Singletary consistently.

After last week's performance vs. Washington, and the latest emergence of Motor, it's easy to imagine that Gore's touches are going to become more limited going forward. Hopefully, last week's drop in production is less a symptom of Gores age, and more a case of the way he was used-- Jauronball, as GunnerBill called it. With that in mind, I do hope he gets the opportunity to get another 85 yards, which would place him as the second all-time NFL rusher, passing Barry Sanders.

C'mon...barring injury, Gore will have plenty of chances to get 85 more yards this season.

It's not like they will never give him the ball again.
