The last time Frank Gore faced the Seahawks’ front-8 at Candlestick — October 18, 2012 – Gore exploded for runs of 10 yards, 11 yards, 18 yards, 20 yards and 37 yards.
Five big runs in one game. One of Gore’s greatest performances.
This season, Gore has had runs of 10-yards-or-more 22 times — outstanding. But he hasn’t had any runs of 10-yards-or-more since since the Saints game almost three weeks ago.
If Gore has any gas left in the tank, he will break a few big runs against the Seahawks — even if Joe Staley and Mike Iupati cannot play.
