Gore fell 33 yards shy of his ninth 1,000-yard rushing season, a sure sign that the 33-year-old, 11-year veteran has hit the wall, right? Don’t be so sure. Gore did post a career worst 3.7 yards per attempt in 2015, but much of the blame for the paltry number has to lie with the Colts’ inconsistent line and Andrew Luck’s absence. A bounceback can be expected in ‘16, even if the Colts start to limit Gore’s workload. His size (5’ 9”, 217 lbs.) does not tell the full story of how punishing a back Gore is when he gets moving downhill. He has made a living wearing down defenses over the course of a game.
