It wasn’t an eye-popping performance by any stretch of the imagination, but Frank Gore did enough on Sunday to etch himself forever in Niners’ lore. In the 49ers’ 26-0 blanking of the Rams, Gore rushed for 73 yards on 21 carries, surpassing Joe Perry to become the franchise’s all-time leading rusher. Gore has now rushed for 7,396 yards on 1,595 carries in his seven-year career, and has established himself as an elite back since San Fran selected him with their third-round pick in 2005. He’s only 18 yards away from reaching his fifth 1000-yard rushing season, which would also likely earn him his third Pro Bowl selection.
