2014 Week 14 vs OAK (12 / 63 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gore showed great vision on his first carry, picking up seven yards with two well-timed cuts. It was far from the last time he had success on the ground, but his numbers suffered because of the 49ers early play calling and the game script in the 4th quarter. Gore had 23 yards on his first 3 carries but then the 49ers went away from him for long stretches. He made another good cutback in the second quarter, picking up 9 yards after bouncing off a linebacker. Gore again picked up 23 yards on his first 3 carries of the second half but only saw 3 more carries in the game.
2014 Week 15 vs SEA (11 / 29 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gore had two really good runs before leaving the game with a concussion. On his second carry he made 2 well-timed cuts to hit the hole at the perfect time and pick up 15 yards off left guard. His other successful run was a ten yard touchdown that was just extremely well blocked. Gore took the 4th and 1 carry off left guard and saw no opposition until the two yard line where he ran over a safety and into the end zone. His other seven carries went for a combined two yards as the Seahawks stacked the line early. Gore suffered his concussion laying a block in the flats and did not return.
2014 Week 16 vs SD (26 / 158 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gore had a spectacular first half on the ground and it all started with an electrifying 52 yard touchdown run on the first drive. On the run Gore broke two tackles at the line of scrimmage then executed a stiff arm on the safety before rumbling into the end zone. On the next drive he had a well-timed cutback for a gain of 16 all the way down to the Chargers 5 yard line. Gore's domination continued throughout the 2nd quarter with great blocking and some old school running. He ran through countless arm tackles and showed great vision and patience. Gore started to slow down at the end of the first half as he was stuffed twice inside the five yard line just before halftime. The 49ers tried to pound the ball and control the clock in the second half, but Gore's next 8 carries would net only 12 yards as the Chargers dared San Francisco to pass. His only run of significance in the second half was an 11 yard run off left guard. He made a well-timed cut on the run then ran through two more arm tackles for a first down. With Carlos Hyde out Gore was asked to once again carry the load and he did more than anyone could have asked.
Latest News49ers | Frank Gore will play Saturday (Sat Dec 20, 03:48 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) will play Saturday, Dec. 20, against the San Diego Chargers. link to story 49ers | Frank Gore questionable (Fri Dec 19, 05:34 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) was limited in practice Friday, Dec. 19, and is questionable for Week 16. Our View: As long as Gore is cleared, he'll get the start and the bulk of the workload against the Chargers.
link to story 49ers | Frank Gore knows the end is near (Fri Dec 19, 01:17 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore, who is set to be an unrestricted free agent after this season, knows that these next two games with the team are likely to be his last. “I’ve been here 10 years and it could be last two games here this year,” Gore said. “It’s weird knowing that I won’t be under contract any more. But I’ve been in the league long enough to understand it’s a business.” Gore could post his eighth 1,000-yard season if he gains 196 yards in the final two games. Our View: Gore will try to go out with a bang. He has the backfield mostly to himself on Saturday with Carlos Hyde likely out. He's a boom/bust RB2 this week.
link to story 49ers | Frank Gore on track to play? (Thu Dec 18, 06:53 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) continues through the concussion protocol this week, but head coach Jim Harbaugh anticipates Gore suiting up in Week 16 against the San Diego Chargers Saturday, Dec. 20. Gore was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18, after sitting out Wednesday, Dec. 17. Our View: Gore should get most of the carries, but we have no clue whether he will put up good numbers or not give the inconsistency of his carries. At best he's an RB3, even though he could put more yards if he was used better. That's not the case though, so don't expect more than RB3 numbers.
link to story 49ers | Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree limited (Thu Dec 18, 05:41 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (concussion) and WR Michael Crabtree (back) were limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 18. Our View: The San Francisco 49ers have had a long season, but they won't roll over and die for San Diego this week, and in fact will probably do fine offensively. Gore has not been consistent this season, so he is no more than an RB3 this week, since we never know what his workload will be.
