Saints well aware of what 49ers RB Frank Gore can do
 
1 Attachment(s)
METAIRIE, La. – Lost in all the talk about who the 49ers will go with at quarterback is one small detail.
S
an Francisco (7-2-1) owns the NFL’s No. 1 rushing offense in the NFL.

While everyone knows about the growing quarterback controversy between Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick, few people are talking about Frank Gore.

“I don’t know why (people aren’t talking about Gore),” said defensive tackle Tom Johnson, whose Saints host the 49ers on Sunday. “He has been doing good. They’re running game has been phenomenal and opening up their passing game. We’re focused on the run right now as defensive linemen.”

Indeed, no team averages more than San Francisco’s 165.5 yards per game and Gore, at 5-foot-9, 217 pounds, is a big part of that. He’s eighth in the NFL with 831 yards this season and his 5.29 yard-per-carry average is second-best in the league for players with at least 120 carries.

Yet, he’s rarely put in the same category as Marshawn Lynch, Adrian Peterson or Arian Foster.

“He’s a lot more physical than you probably would think,” New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Casillas said. “He’s not a huge back. He’s a low-to-the-ground, very shifty guy. He has a burst. He’s a great back. He might be the most underrated back in the league. Every year he consistently puts up the numbers.”

Gore’s 32 100-yard rushing games is best in San Francisco history. In eight seasons, he has rushed for 8,456 yards, more than 1,110 yards more than the second-highest total in franchise history. His 48 rushing touchdowns are second in 49ers annals.

The Saints are familiar with him.

Our front 4 needs to run hard on their O-line, the Canadian connection pushing the middle and the ends finish the wrap, an ocasional delayed blitz by an lb. to meet Gore head on to inflict some pain on him would be nice. A few corner, safety blitz could help alot. This will be won in the trenches. I've been watching Harper"s cover skills improve this year to a point that has impressed the he!! out of me, San Fran.'s coach might think he is a weak link in this game, I hope he does, Harper is going to play huge in this game, he's not the same player as he was last year, he is much better. Harper has become a complete SS.

Yeah, maybe if Gore runs for a 150 in the first half, he'll be so worn out he'll quit in the second half. LMAO!!

What we NEED to do it get up on them early and take them out of their run game. THAT is what we need to do.
