It didn’t take long for the San Francisco 49ers‘ Week 3 loss to start some trouble in the 49ers’ locker room. The Indianapolis Colts flat out embarrassed the hometown 49ers on Sunday and running back Frank Gore didn’t take too kindly to the butt-kicking. In fact, Gore was so irate that he and Jim Harbaugh reportedly got into quite the spat after the game.
Reports say that Gore was most upset about his lack of touched — 13 — and had some “choice words” for Harabaugh. Obviously, this isn’t the first time that a running back has complained about something to his head coach, yet it’s newsworthy considering San Francisco won the NFC last season and is off to such a horrid start.
Now, the issue at hand is also one to monitor from here on out, because those close with the 49ers have spoke about this team not running the ball as much as they have in years previous. When Gore rushes for 82 yards and only get 11 carries, you begin to think if the ex-NFL quarterback in Harbaugh is starting to come to life.
Not to mention, the loss of Vernon Davis is a big one for quarterback Colin Kaepernick, so it would have only made sense for the 49ers to run the ball a little bit more against a less-than stellar Colts run defense. Stay tuned to see if Gore actually asked Harbaugh “What’s your deal, man?”
