    Would love to be a fly on the wall during those negotiations. I could see the 49ers going after him, Gore is about done... He would probably really flourish out there with Kaep and that Oline...

    How about the way Charles, McCoy, or Spiller, when he wasn't hurt, is used. We wont argue about play calls, that goes no where, but he did not run in space very often. He was used up the middle way too much. Whiz knows how to tailor offenses to his best players, I say give him a chance. We only save half of his salary for next year and we don't have cap problems.

    I don't understand why everyone wants to get rid of a player capable of running for 1400 yards. If we still had munch it would make more sense. We have a brand new system now, lets see what he can do in it. And the anti CJ people still have not come up with a alternative way to make up his production. Just saying any mid round pick doesn't work, because almost always it doesn't.

    People keep saying Gore is done, but he looked good last week. You have to remember when talking Frank Gore, he only took something like 200 snaps in college. There arent as many miles on him as youd think for a 30 year old RB.

    I guess I've always liked CJ, but the paycheck for 2014 is just too high on a RB who's best days are behind him. I feel he's got gas left in the tank, but he's on the down slope now. I honestly would like to have him back on the field however I just don't see it happening. I also feel that he doesn't want to be here next season. "And things like dat...:cj:."

    I've never been a CJ fan, as I prefer a smashmouth Eddie George type, BUT I also don't think CJ is replacable with a midround pick. I'd like to see him play motivated and in a new creative way before I gave up on him. I'd sure hate to see him go elsewhere and rebound, and tings like dat

    I dont see him lasting long enough for us to get him in the 2nd, that Championship game shot his stock up a good bit.

    Hey bro, it's hard to pump something out like that real fast to be the first. It's real pressure.

    NEVER!

    CJ is the next VY! He'll be talked about for years after he's run out of the NFL.

    Yeah. We need that cap space. Sorry CJ. Good luck wherever you land.
