The San Francisco 49ers were notified today that RB Frank Gore has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his performance Sunday versus the Seattle Seahawks.
With touchdown runs of 79 and 80 yards, 49ers RB Frank Gore became the only player in NFL history, other than Barry Sanders (80 & 82 at TB, 10/12/97), to register two scoring runs of 75 yards-or-more in the same game. On the day, Gore posted his second career 200-yard rushing performance (16-207-2TDs), while leading his team to a 2-0 start and a spot atop the NFC West. His 12.9 yards per carry average ranks second in franchise history (min. 10 carries) and is the third-highest single-game average (min. 15 carries) in the NFL, since 1970. Gore’s 80-yd. touchdown run was the longest run of his career, while the 79 yarder now ranks second. He also set a career-high, and the 6th-highest total in 49ers history, with 246 yards from scrimmage, having led the team with 39 yards receiving.
Other Gore Notables from the day
• Gore rushed for 126 yards on 11 carries and one touchdown in the first half. It was the first time that Gore rushed for over 100 yards in the first half since 12/10/06 vs. Green Bay (106 yards on 9 carries).
• Sunday marked Gore’s 16th career 100-yard rushing performance, which is tied for 2nd in team history, and his 7th career game with two rushing touchdowns.

Praises to Coach Singletary for not letting his top players play on Friday night!
Even if us Fans would like to see Gore &Bruce play it's nice to know that the
Coach is thinking about keeping them healthy.
I know a lot of folks would like to see them play but waiting for the regular
season is the Best .
Gore won't have to play Friday
Running back Frank Gore and receiver Isaac Bruce won't play
during Friday's preseason game against the Broncos. Coach
Mike Singletary doesn't want to risk injury to two of his
star players who have been getting plenty of work in camp.
Glen Coffee will replace Gore.

I have told you before to watch out for the 49ers this Season. They are Ready and so are the Fans!
Gore's work ethic paying off
49ers RB Frank Gore hasn't taken a day off through the first
10 days of camp, and hasn't asked for one either. That
effort and energy is catching on with his offensive linemen
and others. The coaches are closely monitoring Gore's
workload to make sure he stays healthy and fresh, and though
he will be limited in Friday's exhibition opener against
Denver, it's clear that he's motivated to have a huge year.
The 26-year-old returned to the University of Miami for his
offseason regimen this offseason, rededicating himself to
the kind of training that worked so well for him in 2006.
It's been paying off as Gore is in excellent physical shape
and is working hard despite the blazing heat in San
Francisco. "I think he has the eye of the tiger this year,"
said Niners offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye. "From what
I've seen, his work ethic has been outstanding and he's
looking forward to a good year - and we are looking forward
to him having one."
Gore has been nicked up the past two seasons but thinks his
return to Miami to train will keep him fresh. We like the
improved 49ers' O-line and receiving corps and think both
might help Gore post big yards and touchdowns this season.
The bottom line is that Gore is the one of the rare NFL
running backs who won't share the ball much, get plenty of
catches as well as carries and work in the end zone. He's a
legit first-round pick and No. 1 Fantasy RB that owners
should lean on this season.
