Frank Gore moving up the all-time lists

San Francisco running back Frank Gore has surpassed former 49ers running back Roger Craig for 4th all-time in team history in career touchdowns with 67.

Gore surpassed Craig at the 7:25 mark of the third quarter on a 1-yard jaunt that put the 49ers up 24-0 over the Tennessee Titans.  He also scored earlier in the game – also on a 1-yard run.

Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice, of course, holds the all-time team record with 187 career touchdowns, and the all-time NFL career touchdown record with 207.  Fellow wide receiver Terrell Owens is second in 49ers history with 83, and Hall of Famer Joe Perry is third with 80.

Frank Gore is in his 9th season with the San Francisco 49ers and is already the team’s all-time leading rusher with 9,316 yards.  He sits second on the all-time team list behind Perry for rushing touchdowns, who had 68.

Gore has surpassed the 1000 yard rushing mark in 6 of his 8 seasons as a professional, and appears to be on his way to another such season.

The University of Miami product has been elected to the Pro Bowl 4 times and is third on the active career rushing yards list behind Steven Jackson (10,212) and Adrian Peterson (9,332).
