BTW: signs you are in a sports vacuum have to include a Frank Gore 2020 thread already making it to 4 pages.

And no one has said he's the next Kamara yet.  Just because he started playing when Kamara was in 2nd grade.  Ageism is terrible around here.

I’d expect him to just be used to lighten the load on Bell a bit.  Then again, this is Gase we’re talking about.

So you have my condolences.

You mean to tell me this guy isn't a good coach?

I honestly wanted to use this when the Jets decided on hiring Gore.

I think Gore is a hall of fame runningback. For football, I don’t consider longevity in a career allowing a player to “compile” stats to be a negative. It’s a violent game. Getting on the field every week and coming back every year is an accomplishment in my view.  His peak years were very good too.

Starting week 2.  Any love for old man river?

 

Jets' Frank Gore: In line for Week 2 start
 
1 hr ago |

Gore is expected to serve as the Jets' starting running back Sunday against the 49ers after Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) was placed on injured reserve, Dennis Waszak Jr. of the Associated Press reports.

Bell's placement on IR means he'll be sidelined for at least three games, clearing the way for take the top spot on the depth chart. Though Bell missed the entire second half of the Jets' Week 1 loss to the Bills with the injury, a negative game script left limited work available for Gore, an early-down specialist who doesn't represent much of a passing threat. Gore still managed 24 yards on six carries across his 14 offensive snaps, and he should see his workload pick up against San Francisco if the Jets can avoid falling into an early double-digit deficit. La'Mical Perine (ankle) is on hand as a change-of-pace option, though it's not a lock that he'll be available for Week 2. The Jets will likely promote Josh Adams -- who split work with Gore in Week 1 after Bell's early exit -- from their practice squad in the coming days, and the team could look to add a running back outside the organization to provide some more depth at the position.

How is everyone valuing Gore moving forward this week aside? He has the Colts and Broncos where he will get pretty much everything while Bell is out.

I just don't see it. I respect the longevity, but my definition of HOF just doesn't include a player who was really never considered Top 5 at any point in his career. It would be like putting Jarvis Landry in the HOF if he plays until he's 40 and is a record breaking WR. Gore has been barely above replacement level stat collecting on mostly bad teasm for the last few years.

Are you kidding me?  Think about all of the great players to ever play this game, and Frank Gore is at:

3,612 carries (3rd all time)

15,551 yards (3rd all time)

I don't see any way possible he doesn't make it into the hall.  Just because he got old and his skills have diminished (like every other human in this world), doesn't make his accomplishments any less impressive.

Deion Sanders feels the same way just, fyi, that the HOF is watered down. I understand why people think he is a HOF'er based on the raw numbers . I'm not saying the guy sucks, he had a great career but you and I just have different views on what a Hall of Famer should be. Maybe my standard is to high. 

Cheers.

I agree.  He may get in alone on yards.  But what a yawn of a career.

in his case, endurance will be the only thing that pays off.

dude's an epic stat compiler. Maybe a fringe HOFer at best.

 

 Never considered super elite even in his prime.  Mostly thought of as a very good solid durable back that's it.

 

He's no AP , LT etc.  Those guys jumped off the screen in their prime and could carry their teams for stretches - that's not Gore.

SJax and Edge deserve to get in over Frank the Tank. 

not saying they are gonna be enshrined, just that their peaks were greater than Gore's.

Honestly....

Stats are great and all but that shouldn’t be the only defining thing. Frank Gore is fringe HOFer.

Marshawn Lynch far more deserving of HOF. Was the heart and soul of that Seattle offense during their peak and went on to snare a Superbowl with him as the focal point of that offense and to be frank it should have been 2 in a row. Compare the best of highlight reels of Lynch and Gore and it’s pretty clear to me who is the more damaging runner.
