A month before his boxing debut against ex-NBA All-Star Daron Williams in Tampa, Frank Gore will circle Jacksonville and attend a 49ers game there on Sunday.
“I’ll get up and watch my boys play,” Gore said Monday on KNBR 680-AM. “I’ll hang out with Jade (CEO of York, 49ers). Hopefully we get another win and keep going.”
Gore thinks Monday’s 31-10 win over the Rams should recharge the 49ers’ shot at a playoff berth.
“The way Kyle calls the plays, man, he gets people in great situations,” Gore said. “The way he played last night, he should have known that he should be with the top guys in the NFL.”
Gore praised the 49ers’ physical performances against the Rams, including rookie starter Eliza Mitchell, who has 560 yards and could become the 49ers’ first 1,000-yard rush since Gore’s 2014 departure.
“I like that little kid, Michelle, from Lafayette. He’s got a good back. He’s got a bright future,” Gore said. “Tell him to put his head down and keep working.
“I like how your guy got out Dibo. The O-Line was pushing people around; they didn’t care about the names over there, and played football the way they should. I’m glad Glad they got the win and happy for Kyle and my boy Kittel.
“I slept happily.”
The 49ers’ all-time leading Rusher is out of the NFL for the first time after 16 seasons, opting to watch his sons play after passing overtures from three clubs that do not include the 49ers. Gore said he had spoken with York “but not really about football” as the 49ers began to overtake Raheem Mostart in the season opener.
