    I remember that bowl game when he blew knee out. The kid was destined to be a first round pick and out went the knee. Drop to the 60's I believe.

    It's a great story how things worked out for Gore. A kid who blew out his knee, runs a 4.66 forty and scored a miserable 6 on his Wonderlic. He's still standing.

    I agree with everything ntd said above.



    P.S. I hope Ray 'OJ' Lewis breaks his neck in the Super Bowl. That would be supreme justice for that dirtbag. He can retire on a stretcher.
    I like the Bleacher Report. Don't have too much bad to say about them. They keep the content flowing, the coverage wide and send emails regarding the topics I like. What is great Journalism in sports anyways? The fools who scream at each other on espn, the 3 people we meet in heaven, SI swimsuit issue? It's all subjective to people's opinions. Bleacher Report is fine in my book!

Have you seen some of the posters on this site? I'd say a solid 85-90% of PSD would be rejected by Bleacher Report just for the right to write. Less than 1% could actually gain any traction on the site. This is a writer who has actually posted some pretty impressive numbers for B/R (which, contrary to popular belief, is based on quality). He knows a hell of a lot more than most of you. Not all of you, because there are a some very knowledgeable fans on this site, but most of you.
    Everything I've read on bleacher report has been garbage.

    This ones for Randy Moss. Top 2 WR of all time is on the cusp of getting his ring and solidifying his legacy.

    I must be the only one that is more tired of the "win it for (place player name here)" mantra than the brothers angle.... seriously, it should be about the total team and their collective accomplishments.

I don't know if the Bleacher Report has editors that edit posts but they should because it diminishes their credibility when they let people post articles with grammar and spelling mistakes.

    More poor writing, it makes it seem like Gore was on the team in 2004 when he was picked in the same draft as Alex Smith in 2005.

    On a side note, I can't believe SI puts fannation posts on their main page, most of those articles are a complete joke.
    Editing can be a bit of a mixed bag. A lot of editing comes from interns who aren't paid, so there are times when you feel like you get what you pay for. I feel the same way about editors that I do about the writers, there are some good ones and some bad ones. I've been screwed by editors leaving something I wrote untouched for hours or even days, I've also worked with some really good ones.

    They are trash. You know it, I know it, we all know it. That doesn't mean that there aren't good writers or that they're not full of bad writers who get hot every now and then. But, their name just is garbage. At some point, you need to dissociate with that company, and the sooner the better is probably wise.
    I'm the first to admit the issues their brand has but I'm still fine with associating myself with their brand. Here's the way I look it: I'm a college sophomore. At this stage in most sportswriting careers I'd probably be covering my school's D3 hockey team or something for the school paper. Instead, I get to write about major sports for a site that gets me a ton of exposure and, on occasion, pays me. One option is just better than the other.
    We're better than you
    And we know it

    Completely false.

    Point: Nick Collins, Green Bay Packers. The year the Packers won the Super Bowl and really for the last several years the Packers have been able to succeed without much of a running back yet the defense (and Collins especialy) was a huge part of that.

    The following year he goes down, ended his career, and our defense still hasn't recovered.

    Safety is a huge position on the field.

    This thread is just too funny.

    *RB is probably the second most important position on the football field - LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
    *BR is a quality site - LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL
    *S is the least important position other than maybe FB - LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL

    As far as the subject matter goes, Frank Gore is definitely a good player, although I disagree with the premise that he's "on his last legs" or necessarily that "29 is really old," even for a RB. Chances are, he can put together another 2 or 3 productive seasons as a lead back.

    If you don't like what I write that's your business, but there are good writers on the site. I'm the first to admit there are a ton of ****** ones, but there are some really good ones too. Writing for B/R has become a real double edged sword because right now it's by far the best way for young writers to get exposure, but the ****** writers kind of ruin it for the good ones. It really bothers me that people just see the name of the site and assume everyone on it is crap. I look at it kind of like a team. There are the LeBrons and the Wades (or at least the future LeBron's and Wade's, I think the model is intended for young writers to get experience there before their careers gain some traction) and there are the Juwan Howards and Dexter Pittmans.
    Bc I was drunk and laughing at you? It would be relatively easy to write for bleacher report but why would anyone? If you want a legitimate writing career I wouldn't want my name attached to that place.

    to much screwing going on in this thread- now if the name after the word "screwing" happens to be Megan Fox, Taylor Swift, or anyone named in this article http://www.fhm.com/girls/news/fhms-1...ll-list--83154 I would agree. But please lets stop talking about "screwing" football players.
