There won’t be any more talk about 49ers running back Frank Gore being mad that he doesn’t get the ball enough.
Gore carried 20 times for 153 yards and a touchdown in Thursday night’s 35-11 win over the Rams, and afterward he said he loved the way the coaching staff put the 49ers in a position to play the way they should play.
“We had to get back on track and just be us,” Gore said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “That’s playing smash-mouth football, playing great defense, playing great special teams. That’s what we do.”
Gore praised offensive coordinator Greg Roman for a game plan that saw the 49ers run the ball 40 times as a team, picking up 219 yards and three touchdowns on the ground.
“Coach G-Ro went back to doing basic stuff,” Gore said, “and we got it going.”
After two rough weeks, the 49ers again look like a tough, physical football team.
