At least Gore is aggressive

Question: The complaints about Frank Gore fumbling are tiring. We complain about him like we used to complain about Wendell Tyler. Like Tyler, Gore is an aggresive runner and efforts to gain more yards instead of crumbling like Kevan Barlow expose him more hits and more chances to fumble. Would you prefer having the excitement of a game-breaking runner, or the safe two-yard carries that lead to a long series of three and outs, and punts from deep in our own territory?

Answer: Why not have both? See: Barber, Tiki.

- Matthew Barrows


Matt was born in Blacksburg, Va., and attended the University of Virginia. He graduated in 1995, went to Northwestern for a journalism degree a year later, and got his first job at a South Carolina daily in 1997. He joined The Bee as a Metro reporter in 1999 and started covering the 49ers in 2003. His favorite player of all time is Darrell Green.
