Frank Gore will be more productive in the upcoming season than last year
Debate Rounds (3)
This year Frank is completely healthy. He has looked good in practices during training camp, and Mike Martz the newly acquired offensive coordinator has said Frank will be the center of the offense.
Keep in mind, Martz has always been known for his passing game. According to statistics, Gore is a reliable pass catching back. *Last year Gore compiled 436 yards receiving. The previous year he was able to get 485 yards. In total for his 3 years he has a total of 1,052 receiving yards.* If you look at last year, the 49ers had 3 different quarterbacks play. He never really had time to develop great chemistry with any of them.
In closing, i restate my original opinion. With the new offense and new coordinator, i think Gore's numbers will improve both rushing and receiving wise.
i would like to see what my opponent has to say. Good luck to whoever that is
Frank Gore is a "good running back," however, the 49ers have problems with their starting Quarterback, they now are handing the reins over to O'Sullivan and taking them away from Smith, that shows just how bad their passing game really is, furthermore, they lost Larry Allen their best offensive linemen, on a already weak line. In addition, the 49ers have veteran Isaac Bruce who is now slow, and rookie Josh Morgan is untested, with a journeyman quarterback in O'Sullivan.
This all combines for Gore not doing all that better than last year, because now he will be facing eight man boxes almost every down. The wear and tear of having to shoulder the offense and not getting anything from it will cause injuries and missed games for Gore, therefore, Gore will not have a better year.
Martz can't help him self he will throw and throw, O'Sullivan will have solid numbers because of that, however, Gore will suffer, and Gore doesn't have the tools to be as an effective scat-back where he can catch the ball from the backfied as well. Gore is a bruiser and downhill runner. Martz likes finesse style running backs.
Look just by hiring Martz showed how desperate the 49ers are, look at it this way Gore has got a bad situation both ways, either MArtz throws the ball all the time, keeping the ball out of his hands, or they run Gore all the time, and he will face 8 men fronts the whole season. I predict he will miss at least two games this season due to been banged up.
Gore won't be better.
