We reported this past Sunday that 49ers running back Frank Gore had some choice words for head coach Jim Harbaugh after they were manhandled by the Colts in their own stadium.
Gore made it clear today that he wasn’t frustrated with Harbaugh or his role with the offense, but rather that they’ve lost two straight games.
“I’m cool with Harbaugh,” Gore said on Tuesday, per CSNBayArea.com. “That’s not me, anyway. That’s not me. I’m good.
“I just wanted to win. I wasn’t thinking about how many times I touched the ball. I just wanted to win. Get that nasty taste out of our mouth. That’s what I was thinking about.”
49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman explained why they haven’t been running the ball as much lately.
“I think it’s more of a function of staying on the field and having the opportunity to get into a rhythm and calling those plays,” 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman said. “The past two games, aside from late in the game when you’re in two-minute mode, we’ve had very few base downs to get into a rhythm.
“So we got to do a better job of extending drives, making first downs and creating opportunities for ourselves to get into a flow, get into a rhythm.”
Gore doesn’t care what he does, he’s just mad the Niners have lost two straight games.
“Coach G-Ro called the plays,” Gore said. “Whatever he called, we’re going to try to make it work. And I wasn’t thinking about how many times I was touching the ball. I just wanted to get a W, that’s all.
”We just got to do whatever it takes to win. That’s what we’re about. If it’s running, let’s run. If it’s throwing, it’s throwing. It’s whatever it takes.”
