I have told you before to watch out for the 49ers this Season. They are Ready and so are the Fans!
Gore's work ethic paying off
49ers RB Frank Gore hasn't taken a day off through the first
10 days of camp, and hasn't asked for one either. That
effort and energy is catching on with his offensive linemen
and others. The coaches are closely monitoring Gore's
workload to make sure he stays healthy and fresh, and though
he will be limited in Friday's exhibition opener against
Denver, it's clear that he's motivated to have a huge year.
The 26-year-old returned to the University of Miami for his
offseason regimen this offseason, rededicating himself to
the kind of training that worked so well for him in 2006.
It's been paying off as Gore is in excellent physical shape
and is working hard despite the blazing heat in San
Francisco. "I think he has the eye of the tiger this year,"
said Niners offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye. "From what
I've seen, his work ethic has been outstanding and he's
looking forward to a good year - and we are looking forward
to him having one."
Gore has been nicked up the past two seasons but thinks his
return to Miami to train will keep him fresh. We like the
improved 49ers' O-line and receiving corps and think both
might help Gore post big yards and touchdowns this season.
The bottom line is that Gore is the one of the rare NFL
running backs who won't share the ball much, get plenty of
catches as well as carries and work in the end zone. He's a
legit first-round pick and No. 1 Fantasy RB that owners
should lean on this season.
