Frank Gore still has a lot of gas left in the tank

The San Francisco 49ers found a gem when they selected Frank Gore, back in the 2005 NFL draft. He was the 65th player drafted, and the 49ers are so glad they got him.

Gore has been the heart and soul of the 49ers' franchise for several years. His work ethic is monumental, and his team-first attitude sets him apart from many superstars. It is his ability, combined with his toughness and professionalism, that makes him such a great team leader.

Gore is now 29 years of age and will be entering his eighth NFL campaign. Gore has rushed for over 1,000 yards in five of his last six seasons.

Gore suffered a severe hip injury that cost him the last five games of the 2010 season. Heading into 2011, there were concerns that Gore might be nearing the end of the line, especially after he started the season slowly. Gore came on strong and finished with 1,211 yards, the second highest total of his career.

In his illustrious career, Gore has rushed for 7,625 yards on 1,653 carries, a 4.6 yards-per-carry average. He also has 287 career receptions for another 2,397 yards, not to mention 52 career touchdowns.

Let's take a look at the 49ers' 2012 schedule and put together some fun projections for the year Frank Gore could have.
