San Francisco 49ers' running back Frank Gore did not play Saturday night against the Houston Texans at Candlestick Park.
Instead, he stood dressed on the sidelines with a bit of a disgruntled look on his face.
It needs to be understood that Gore's mean-looking mug is just the way he was made, so maybe there was nothing wrong. However, the 49ers' offense did look flightless on Saturday night, which is why the talks of Gore's contract must be a top priority in Niner Land.
Gore has been publicly unhappy with contract talks between the him and the 49ers over the past few weeks, and it appeared to be a real concern for everyone involved when coach Jim Harbaugh told him that it would be best to sit out Saturday's game.
In summary, the 49ers were blown out of the water by the Houston Texans.
Despite GM Trent Baalke saying he wants to make Gore a "49er for life" and Gore saying he will be there for his team no matter what, there has still not been an extension reached.
Gore remains unhappy, which is not good if the 49ers have an unhappy player in their backfield that pretty much fuels their offense this season.
By the looks of things on Saturday night, in which the Texans man-handled San Francisco, Baalke better act quick.
An unhappy Gore is a terrible offense, which leads to losses -- many of them.
