Gore Eyes 2200

fgore.jpgGore is ready for the offseason. It is the first time in a long time that he is healthy and ready for the offseason. Darryl Johnston and Curt Menefee were discussing Gore during the Broncos game and Moose mentioned how Gore told him he will take a week off then it is back to work. It seems Gore has his mind set on 2200. The pro bowl back is focusing on breaking Eric Dickerson’s single season rushing record. Asked what he can do to eclipse his record breaking season, Gore had this to say…

“I’m going for 2,200 (yards) next year,” Gore said. “That’s the record, isn’t it? Yeah, I’ll get that.”

And Gore had this to say about his first healthy offseason in a while…

“Last year, I didn’t start working out ’til the end of summer,” said Gore, who averaged a hefty 5.4 yards per carry. “I couldn’t run, couldn’t lift with my upper body. After a whole summer to work out, next year is going to be crazy, real crazy.”

  1. just work on staying healthy,and its a team sport,set team goals.nfl net work says,most improved player.one said alex smith and the other was frank gore ….and the other#3 chadd penington.

  2. WITH THAT SAID I CAN’T WAIT TILL NEXT SEASON
    GO GORE & GO NINERS!!!!

  3. if alex smith continues to play the way he does, gore might get that 2200

  4. Hey my name is joe read what I have been saying for god’s sake

  5. God, I love Gore. Imagine if our line stayed healthy and was a little improved and we became more balanced and didn’t have to pass to catch up…yeah, I’m pretty sure he’d get it. I KNOW if he had the amount of carries that Larry Johnson had this season, he would have broke it THIS year.

  6. if the center j. newberry comes back next year and if he stays healthy and larry allen and we get eric steinbach,imagen how dominate the middle of the line woulb be.then i would say he could get 2200 yards.if he stays healthy!

  7. if gore wants to hit 2,200 he is gona have to cary the ball around 100 more times then this last year i think he has a shot at it why not as long as he stays healthy i cant want for next year man its gona be fun 49ers4life

  8. this boise state and oklahoma game was awsome

  9. Newberry is doubtful for next year. A center can’t have bad knee’s, even if he goes back to his natural position at guard, he will still have a very difficult time. With the 49ers pushing so many players at guard.

  10. eric heitmann is good,but he is always injuried every year.i guess we will have to find a half way decent back up then.any decent centers in free agents this year?

  11. USC’s Center is a great pick, but centers out of college generally take 2 years inorder to step into a starting position. And that is moving extremelly fast, We would have a better chance of stealing Bentley from the Browns in draft day trades.

  12. i have fallowed bentley sinse he started in the nfl. but he is always injuried too

  13. Yes and no, he has been playing for the Browns. Their training program sucks. He is a player that I would like to see the 49ers take a chance on. He hasen’t ever been able to play in a good enviroment, and yet has still excelled. so for a 4th, 5th, and 6th round pick he would be a great pick up. Even if we had to trade all of are pics 4th round and up. He is one of those big body mean ass bastards that just likes to hurt people. Tell me Nolan wouldn’t like him?????

  14. JOE YOU ARE AN IDIOT!!! NOOOO!!! We aren’t gonna trade a bunch of draft picks for an injury prone center with a huge contract! And I am positive the Browns aren’t looking to trade him. We’ll sign someone in free agency or draft for some depth. Remember we still have David Baas that will play center in the future for us.

  15. Please tell me why we should go out a get a high profile center through either FA or draft when we have a pro bowl level center allready. Calling Heitmann injueryproned is just plain wrong, as his injueries is freak accidens and everybody can suffer a broken leg. The first words about his recovery is all good so unless something unexpected happens from now until april I don’t see us go after a starter O-line player.
    Backups however is a issue, but it is a second day draft or low price FA issue.

    Defence, defence and defence combined with a starter wide out (I love Battle but see him best as a 3 option) is our major area for upgrade this offseason.

  16. WHY DOES NO ONE KNOWS HOW TO SPELL D-E-F-E-N-S-E????

    D
    E
    F

    !

  17. KNOW*

  18. Fix the must need areas first and then worry about injury areas.(I’d worry about Jonas Jennings injuries before worrying about center)
    Right tackle comes to mind. Wide receiver, and most of the defense.

  19. how long is gore under contract

  20. Johnnir….Gore is under contract for the 2007 season then is set to become a free agent. A RFA, but look for the team to lock him for about 3-5 years during the offseason.

  21. Until this year Heitmann has not missed a game since his econd season. he shas not missed a start in the past 2 seasons and 14 weeks of this one.

  22. I am not a Heitmann hater, he is a great offensive lineman, and the whole trade idea was for to have more depth behind him, I would rather see us go after Leonard Davis in the free agency, and bentley is just the best player on the worst team in football, injuries or not the dude is good, and getting good players after the 5th round is not very common. We sign them, they eat cap space, then we release them

  23. THEY DONT EAT THAT MUCH CAP SPACE AND WE HAVE PLAYERS THAT HAVE CONTRIBUTED AFTER THE 5TH ROUND…. MELVIN OLIVER, RONALD FIELDS, PATRICK ESTES, ARNAZ BATTLE, KEITH LEWIS, ANDY LEE, PARYS HARALSON, DELANIE WALKER, AND MARCUS HUDSON ARE ALL 5th ROUND AND UP!!! AND WHY TRADE FOR SOMEONE WITH A HUGE CONTRACT FOR DEPTH!!! UR RETARED!!

  24. OH YEAH AND UR BOY ERIC HEITMANN WAS A 7th ROUNDER!!! ALONG WITH ERIC JOHNSON!!!

  25. Late round pics generally are for players that would need to still devoloped, of every single one of those players mentioned, how many years did it take for that to happen

  26. How many years will it take ur brain to develop? Stop arguing and go learn more about football.

  27. the second and third round has been good to us also.terrell owens,joe montana,frank gore,,jeff ulbrich,adam syder,justin smiley,shawntae spencer,dave baas waiting and i dont know about brandon williams we only see on punt returns.the only bad pick we got in third round recently about three years ago was,derrick hamilton.and the reason first round picks develope faster then later round players.because of being a first round player,they put that player as a starter on the field first,where a third rounder has to wait in the wings for another player to get injuried or for a player to get cut.just look at baas he should have taken the center job already.

  28. Baas and Spencer were 2nd rounders…. By the way, I was really hoping we’d get Bernard Berrian a few years ago since I live 45 mins. from Fresno and saw him play every weekend in college… well we took Derrick Hamilton instead and the Bears took Berrian with the very next pick…. way to go Terry Donahue!

  29. bigm,in the begining of that statement i said,second and third round

  30. my bad

  31. frank gore is one of my favorite forty-niners,he’s almost up there with montana,young,lott,and rice.It amazes me that he barely worked out and he is the leading rusher in the nfc.he is gonna be unstoppable next year,he’s gonna be like LT.whoever considered frank gore in the draft,thank you.

  32. god I can’t wait till next year!!So stoked to see the changes we make in the offseason and the picks in the draft.I can only hope for the best,till then I’ll just have to watch the giants hopefully their season goes well with barry zito.

  33. Gore could do it as long as we get rid of Kwame. We desperately need to improve the right side of that line. I have a feeling that our defense is really going to kick ass this year. Next year in the draft look for us to go O line because Larry Allen will most likely want to finish his career in Dallas and with Jonas “my pinkey hurts so I’m sitting this one out” Jennings frequently injured, our right tacks situation really needs to be addressed, and with a quality back like Gore….We just owe him for what he did for the niners this season…a back can only do so much with a shitty line…look at Shawn Alexander. What has he done since their best lineman left to the Vikings???

  34. if we do draft an O lineman get joe thomas from wisconsin,if we do draft a lineman,other than that we should get samardzija

  35. yo jerry I live in oklahoma and every sooner fan thinks that is the worst game in history,not me though I was still stoked about the niners beating the broncos

  36. no samardzija is inconsistent he drops balls if we get a wideout we should look at dwayne jarret he has height strength doesnt drop alot of balls, and in da second round if he is still there i like reggie nelson from florida he is a safety or if he is gone buster davis the linebacker from florida state is real real good i compare him to derrick brooks

  37. I’m excited about Frank Gore. We gotta lock him down for the future. Maybe draft or trade for a wide out and just focus on our defense to get our dynasty back in service! Look for Vernon Davis to be a focus this year to take some heat off our running game!
