According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, Frank Gore expressed frustration during the second half of San Francisco’s loss to Indianapolis.
I don’t blame him.
Gore had 11 carries for 82 yards, but he did not have a carry in the fourth quarter.
On Tuesday, when asked about being visibly upset on the sidelines against Indy, Gore said:
"... I wasn’t thinking about how many times I touched the ball. I just wanted to win. Get that nasty taste out of our mouth. That’s what I was thinking about."
In two games against the Rams last year, Gore had 44 carries for 155 yards (3.52 yards-per-carry average). But last week, the Rams allowed 175 rushing yards and a touchdown to DeMarco Murray. Did the Cowboys expose flaws in St. Louis' run defense that San Francisco can exploit?
After the 49ers' offensive debacle last week, expect Gore to be the No. 1 priority in the game plan, as the team attempts to alleviate Gore's frustration and take as much pressure off Kaepernick as possible. About 100 yards rushing and a couple of touchdowns would do wonders for San Francisco’s offense.
