Just for a reference on whats a good number, Tomlinson has never done more than 12 a season, and hes considered the best breakaway runner in the game.
I think he is saying that some of those 25, 30, 35, yard runs could have been taken to the house if he had more elite speed. Just because you have the most 20+ yard runs doesn't mean you have elite speed.

But to say his weakness is an inability to make long runs is a little far fetched when he leads the league in 20+ runs. Sure hes not as fast as Tomlinson, but I wouldnt call his speed a weakness by any stretch of the imagination.

Hes got a fast burst and great football speed. 90% of running backs are occasionally gonna get caught by the really fast DB's.

A better stat would be 40 yards runs. How many 40+ did he have. Because you can get 20 yards without breaking away from anyone.

He doesn't have to worry. But he could try to avoid defenders and not take a direct hit from time to time. As a starting RB that will catch up to him.

It may, but he's only 24. He doesn't have to change his running style exactly right now.

Last year, they didn't want any part of him when he was coming right at them. This year willb e no different. He hurst people, but I doubt he get 2000 yards. On the other hand, if the whole O click, he may do that. They needs serious WR help though to keep the D from stacking the line. It takes multiple defenders to bring him down.

Ha. I remember when the 9ers were 2-14 and the only team we beat was the Cardinals (twice) and the whole offseason the only time I could smack anyone was when I ran into a Cardinals fan.

Other teams actually already do that to Gore.

Im not saying he will break 2000, but the second half of the season, defences consistently put 8 in the box.

Haha.. exactly. The year after we swept the Rams and it was the same thing. This year we sweep the Seahawks.

I dont even hate the Cardinals like I hate the Rams and Seahawks. Arizona is like that little annoying cousin that you just laugh at. At least the Seahawks and Rams were good at one time.

Well he certainly is in the right division to do it. He's running behind a very good, if not great OL (excluding Kwame Harris) and is starting to reach his prime. However, I am not saying that he will do it. People really don't realize how special that record is. Also, San Fran's WR's are still very unproven and if the Niners prove they can't pass effectively, look for teams to stack eight in the box.

Teams stacked the box against Gore a TON last year due to Alex Smiths inexperience. Was it as much as LJ? I don't know, but it couldnt have been much easier. The box was constantly stacked against Gore.

He ran for 5.4 YPC while handling the full load against a stacked box all season....very impressive.

Also, for those who think he has a punishing run-style that will get him injured....there was a quote from Grant Winstrom after one of the games Gore ran all over them...He stated he felt like they were in position to make plays, but could never land a direct hit on Gore...

So while doesn't shy away from contact....he doesn't take full hits all the time..


I love Gore, but I don't think he'll break the record this year.
