Dickerson Likes Gore’s Chances
We know that shortly after the 2006 season, Gore said his next goal was 2,200 yards. Which would break the record for most yards rushing in a season held by Hall of Fame running-back Eric Dickerson. With the media all down in Miami getting ready for the Super Bowl, the Mercury News tracked down Dickerson, who first heard Gore’s comments on Thursday, and asked what he thought about Gore’s comments on breaking his rushing record.
“I like it,” Dickerson said. “I like a guy who feels like that, that he has a chance to break that record. I think Frank is that kind of back.”
In fact, Dickerson said the same thing to O.J. Simpson during a recruiting trip to USC, before a Trojans practice.
