    Gore's the only guy worth even half a shit on the team.

    San Diego has two All-Pros on offense (not just Pro Bowl, All-Pro).

    Pull your head out of Wright Thompson's crack, knucklehead.

    gore gets hurt a lot. gore fumbles a lot.

    the best thing about LT's season, and why he is so great?

    the long TDs this season:
    37-yd rec.
    38-yd run
    25-yd rec.
    41-yd run
    51-yd rec.
    51-yd run

    and he's got another five or six TDs between 8-10 yards.

    just awesome.

    gore has six TDs on the ground. period.

    You are an NFL coach. You are playing in your season finale. Win and you make the playoffs. Lose and you are out.

    You have a choice between facing Tomlinson or Gore.

    You're honestly going to pick Frank friggin Gore?

    So what? We're comparing this year, not rookie years. Just last week, Gore had a fumble inside his own 10 that led to three Green Bay points in a game his team lost.

    This isn't even an argument. Yes, Gore's good. But not LT good.

    Gore's success is remarkable for a guy who suffered a major knee injury in college.

    The same goes for Willis McGahee.

    Two knee injuries. One on each knee.

    Fifteen teams have scored less than 29 touchdowns this season?

    Another argument in LDT's favor: All those touchdowns are not only touchdowns, but many of them are plays where only the goal line stopped him from having many more yards. He makes a great move to get past a defender and breaks into the clear, only to have the yardage meter stop when he crosses the goal line.

    No. Seventeen teams have scored fewer than 29 touchdowns this season.

    See for yourself: http://www.nfl.com/stats/teamsort/NFL/OFF-SCORING/2006/regular?sort_col_1=4&_3:col_1=4

    Tennessee 28
    St. Louis 27

    Arizona 27
    Buffalo 27
    Atlanta 26
    Minnesota 26
    San Francisco 26
    Denver 25
    Washington 25
    Detroit 24
    Miami 24
    Houston 24
    Carolina 23
    Cleveland 22
    Oakland 16
    Tampa Bay 16

    San Diego is, of course, first in the league with ... 52.

    I don't understand how S.F. has only 26 TDs, after all the 49ers have Frank Gore! ;) :)

    (In seriousness, he is having a mighty fine season. However, I want to point out that if you are going to use the argument that S.F. has to come back a lot and thus pass, then you could probably say that Gore gets a lot of his yards with teams playing for the pass; i.e. in nickel defense)

    501 yards in the first quarter.

    5.5 yards a carry.

    Unheard of for that many carries.
