The gold jacket and the bronze bust have now been secured. If they weren’t already.
Running back Frank Gore, with 88 first-half rushing yards, got to exactly 15,000 yards for his career.
Gore, a fifteenth-year veteran, remains fourth on the all-time rushing list. With 93 yards on 11 carries as of this posting, he’s currently 264 yards behind Hall of Famer Barry Sanders.
And make no mistake about it: Gore is a Hall of Famer. Some scoff at the concept because he has no Super Bowl wins and no first-team All-Pro recognition. But he’s as durable as any running back since Emmitt Smith, and Gore continues to show no sign of slowing down.
