Frank Gore says he doesn’t regret signing with Colts

New, comments

The Colts are bad, and have been since Gore joined, but he says he’d do it again.

The Indianapolis Colts are a bad football team. A couple years ago, it looked like Andrew Luck might be trending in a direction that that would make the Colts an elite team, but they went in the complete opposite direction. Former San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore is one of the players that felt the Colts were going to be good.

Gore was mistaken. He joined the Colts late in his career, ostensibly to earn a shot at a Super Bowl before he calls it a career. Unfortunately, Luck has been bad and the Colts, under Chuck Pagano, have been laughable. Yet another team letting Gore down after he gave the 49ers more than they were ever able to give him.

But Gore says he has no regrets, two games into what looks like another lose season.

“If I had to do it again, I still would make the same decision,” Gore said, via the Indianapolis Star. “Things just didn’t go our way the last two years, starting with our leader. He got hurt. I’ve played with, what, five quarterbacks?”

As the article above notes, Gore has actually played with six quarterbacks in two years with the Colts. He’s slowed down considerably himself, and isn’t carrying the Colts to the playoffs by any means ... but it is sad to see another team letting him down.

Gore has 24 carries for 88 yards and a touchdown through two games this season. Last year, he put up 1,025 yards and four touchdowns with the Colts. He had 967 yards and six touchdowns with them the year before, his first with Indianapolis.
