Frank Gore reveals biggest regret with 49ers
Frank Gore will get a chance to face the team he began his career with in the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2. As he prepares to play his second game with the New York Jets, Gore reflected on his team in San Francisco — one that should have been filled with multiple Super Bowls.
“We should’ve had two, but, man, we should’ve won one,” Gore said of his time with the 49ers, per NBC Sports. “That’s the one thing I regret we didn’t do, because we were so tight as a team. . . . how much respect we had for each other.”
Gore spent the first 10 seasons of his career with the 49ers, being a consistent source of offense in the backfield. During his tenure in San Francisco, the team advanced to the Super Bowl in 2012.
In the said Super Bowl appearance, Gore and the team squared off against the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens emerged as the victors of the game though, as Colin Kaepernick was unable to connect with Michael Crabtree inside the five-yard line on what would have been a game-winning touchdown.
A year later in 2013, the 49ers found themselves in the NFC Championship Game against the Seattle Seahawks. Similar to the Super Bowl, Kaepernick and Crabtree couldn’t convert on a late-game pass to win the game.
Frank Gore has put together a legendary career in the NFL, and even at 37 years old, he continues to be featured in whatever offense he’s a part of. On Sunday, he’ll likely see an expanded workload due to Le’Veon Bell being placed on injured reserve.
Despite the success he’s had in the league, the veteran running back constantly regrets that the 49ers weren’t able to win a Super Bowl during his watch.
