Rathman on Gore’s workload: ‘We need to manage him’

Frank Gore and Tom Rathman. (AP) The 49ers have tried to manage running back Frank Gore’s workload in recent years to keep him fresh for the latter stages of the season. And those attempts, the statistics suggest, have been largely unsuccessful. Last year, for example, certainly wasn’t a smashing success. Gore, 31, had 146 carries in the first eight regular-season games, 130 in the final eight games, ranked eighth in the NFL in rushing attempts and didn’t finish with a flourish. He averaged 4.2 yards a carry in the first eight games, 3.9 in the final eight and that number dipped to 3.4...

Frank Gore's comments about the 2005 49ers team

In responding to some of yesterday's comments, I take a look at a recent comment from Frank Gore. Frank Gore, running back extraordinaire, talked with the media recently, in which discussion he handled questions about his looming retirement with class. David had an excellent post on this yesterday. In the comments of David's article, a tweet from Eric Branch was posted. I'll reproduce it here: Frank Gore on if certain guys taught him how to be a pro as a rookie on 2005 #49ers (Record: 4-12): "Nah. We didn’t have anybody." — Eric Branch (@Eric_Branch) August 20, 2014 This tweet...

No more Gore? RB discusses uncertain future

If this is Frank Gore’s last season with the 49ers, he’d like to leave with a Super Bowl ring and this message for 31 teams: I can still play.

Frank Gore handling the potential end of his 49ers career with incredible class

Frank Gore handling the potential end of his 49ers career with incredible class

Frank Gore's time with the 49ers is coming to an end, and he is showing incredible class with it. Considering how much he has accomplished in spite of his college knee injuries, maybe it is not so surprising. The San Francisco 49ers head into the 2014 season with an intriguing 2-headed monster at running back that features Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde. LaMichael James could work his way into that group, and maybe Marcus Lattimore gets back on the field this year, but for now, Gore and Hyde are the guys who will handle the 49ers running game. Unfortunately, this could also be the last season...

Notes: Gore not running to panic button; sod gets mixed reviews

Relax, people, it’s the preseason. That was running back Frank Gore’s general message after a 34-0 loss to the Broncos on Sunday afternoon. In their two exhibition games, the 49ers have been outscored 57-3, been outgained 743-417 and lost the turnover battle, 7-2.

Fantasy football preview: Is Frank Gore Still A Top 20 Running Back?

Frank Gore has shown that age is just a number, but with Carlos Hyde looking like the real deal is Gore still a safe bet? In the second fantasy preview we take a look at the 49er backfield. I've been having a recurring dream. It's set 30 years in the future. I'm watching football on my hologram projector from the comfort of my underwater home. With a wave of my hand, I bring up the stats from all 72 fantasy players I have going that day. Near the top reads a familiar stat line. Frank Gore: 90 yards rushing, 2 receptions for 20 yards and 1 TD. However, these are only dreams and after years...

Carlos Hyde looks solid running, picking up the blitz in first career start

Carlos Hyde looks solid running, picking up the blitz in first career start

49ers rookie running back Carlos Hyde looked solid in a limited first game. We take a look at his rushing work, as well as his blitz pick-up. The San Francisco 49ers preseason opener also marked the NFL debut of running back Carlos Hyde. On Thursday, I asked what people were hoping to see from Hyde in his first NFL action. It's safe to say the 49ers second round pick did not disappoint. Hyde got the start in place of Frank Gore, who will see few if any carries this preseason. On the day, Hyde rushed 5 times for 39 yards. He showed some solid burst, some strength, and solid work in blitz...

Greg Roman not sure whether Frank Gore will play in 49ers-Ravens

Greg Roman not sure whether Frank Gore will play in 49ers-Ravens

Greg Roman is not sure whether Frank Gore will play in the 49ers preseason opener on Thursday. We've got some advice for Coach Roman. Greg Roman met with the media following the San Francisco 49ers Tuesday practice session, and naturally, he got a question about whether or not Frank Gore would play on Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens. Greg Roman said he isn't sure whether RB Frank Gore will play Thursday night. — Steve Corkran (@CorkOnTheNFL) August 5, 2014 I'm guessing Roman has a pretty good idea what kind of Frank Gore will get on Thursday. And if he does not, I'm willing to...

Frank Gore taking Carlos Hyde under his wing [Photo]

Frank Gore is taking Carlos Hyde under his wing, and we've got the photographic evidence to prove it! This picture is a few days old, but I wanted to make sure everybody got a chance to see it. Frank Gore is not on Twitter, but he does have an Instagram account. He shared this picture with the caption, "Good day for the RB". It is Gore with an arm around the shoulder of rookie running back Carlos Hyde. Although Gore is the No. 1 back, Carlos Hyde will be getting a lot of work this preseason. Kendall Hunter is out for the year, and LaMichael James will be sidelined most of the preseason....
