Frank Gore will be running again soon

The coaches and schemes may change in San Francisco, but Frank Gore always remains the centerpiece of the offense.

49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has indicated of late that won’t be changing under his watch.

“Having studied our team and our own personnel and other backs across the league, I really think Frank Gore is one of the best running backs in the National Football League and one of the most complete backs,” Harbaugh said.

San Francisco’s best player is also healing quickly after suffering a hip fracture during the 2010 season.  Gore told Matt Maiocco of Comcast Bay Area that he was cleared to begin running again on February 28.  His injury did not require surgery.

When Harbaugh talked about the running back position recently, he failed to mention Brian Westbrook.  It appears very unlikely Westbrook will be back with the team.

    I know it’s a “what if” game that doesn’t have much place in reality, but “what if” Gore hadn’t had the injuries that he’s had? Can one imagine how freakishly good this guy might have been? Not that he’s not good, but I’m just saying…

    Frank is really good, but I think Patrick Willis is the best player on the 49ers.

    Westbrook looked better last season than he has in quite a long time. Amazing how much of a difference having fresh legs can make.
