The 2001 Miami team might have been the most talented of all-time, and the one thing I'll remember was how special Frank Gore was running the ball. It was similar to the way Adrian Peterson impressed everybody this year, though Gore is smaller but probably hits the hole faster.
Frank obviously needs to slim down; he's gotten a little too heavy and lost some speed in the past two seasons. He looks fat out there, along with Tyrone Moss, who I'm really down on right now.
Frank's family is in desperate need for money. His mom has some serious health issues and Frank is the man of the family and needs to take care of everyone. Even as a third or fifth round pick he'll make enough money on his first contract to help out his family a ton.
Totally agree with everything you said. It is best for Frank to do this although i think he would have been super next year. Esp. if he ran track in the spring like the coaches wanted. Gore would be a steal in the mid rounds, folks. Breck speaks the truth. This kid has BETTER VISION than Clinton Portis with more power. All he is lacking is the Burst which was there in 2001 before the injury. By next season it should be back and at worst the season after that. IM TELLING YOU FOLKS TAKE HIM IN THE MID ROUNDS AND WE WONT BE DISAPPOINTED IN THE LONG TERM. If Tyrone Moss had a tenth of the heart or work ethic of Frank Gore he would be an All-American. Instead he is just a Fat Lazy Slob.
