Indianapolis Colts running back Frank Gore may have already been to five Pro Bowls and racked up over 12,000 total yards in his career, but he’s not done yet. The 33-year-old joined The Jim Rome Show on Thursday and shared why he’s gearing up for his 12th season in the NFL.
“I still love the game, and I want what everybody wants when they play this game, and that’s a Super Bowl,” Gore said.
Entering his second year with Indianapolis, Gore believes Andrew Luck is the guy who can lead the organization to the big game and was impressed with the quarterback’s toughness and how he played his best against their toughest opponents last season.
“He loves the game, a very smart quarterback, he’s very tough, and I’m happy that he’s healthy. I think, if we can keep him healthy, I think he can do some great things,” Gore said. “I go by last year, the games he did play, we played top teams, and one team that we did beat that was Denver, who won the Super Bowl, and two teams we lost to, the Patriots and also Carolina and they were both great games, that lets you know what type of players he is when he’s on the field.”
Gore also had an individual goal for 2016 as well. He wants to rush for over 100 yards in a game, something an Colts running back hasn’t accomplished since 2012.
“I want it bad. I was very hurt. I couldn’t do it last year, came two yards short last year,” Gore said. “I’m very competitive. I like to compete, and I really want to be the guy to get that job done.”
