49ers OC believes Gore can take heavy load

New offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye believes RB Frank Gore has the "capability to carry the ball 25 times (a game)."

Raye's emphasis on the running game combined with new running backs coach Tom Rathman's influence figures to bode well for Frank Gore's value in 2009. Raye's next order of business is bringing in a Tony Richardson type of full back as a lead blocker.
