49ers RB Frank Gore carried the ball just six times for 10 yards in Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals, as the 49ers went to more and more multiple-receiver formations.
“We did what the defense gave us,” Gore said, via Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, saying he didn’t know that would be the plan.
Gore became frustrated and ended the interview the story said. After drafting young backs to eventually replace him for years, the 49ers showed what could be a sign that Gore’s role might not be what it used to be. It wasn't a great matchup to begin with. Carlos Hyde only had three carries for 13 yards but did score a TD. With Gore getting up there in age for what is considered the prime of an NFL running back, owners want to keep an eye on this situation.
