Interview w/Frank Gore:


Hello Frank, thank you for visiting with me today. It’s pleasure to interview you today.


Last year you had 1,036 yards rushing, and 6 touchdowns, impressive to say the least. Now that Mike Singletary is implementing more of a “running game” type offense, you must be feeling pretty good that you’ll beat that for the 2009 season.  Comment??


How will you Mentor the Third Round Draft Pick running back from Alabama, Glenn Coffee? What will be your main goal in what he can learn from you?


What will you focus on in Training Camp?


Have you sat down and had a conversation, with Running Back Coach, Tom Rathman? Do you have any similar goals?


What differences do you see with Jimmy Raye, from Mike Martz?


Where do you see the team in early December?


What are your favorite plays from scrimmage?


If you could give be a “coach” for a day, what would be your priority for the team?


We all notice that you work very hard during previous training camps and Game Day.  How did you get your work ethic, which has made you so successful?


How do you see the game of football (NFL) 20 years from now?

What rule changes, would like to see happen?


Do you think steroid use is as prevalent in the NFL as it is in Baseball?


What do you like the most about the 49er fans?


If there is anything you could say to the fans, what would it be?


If you could change anything about Candlestick Park, what would it be?


Tell me your favorite inspiring moment you experienced in a huddle?


Did you pick your jersey number, and if so, why?


Who do you feel more comfortable with in the running game as quarterback? Shaun Hill, or Alex Smith?
