Running back Frank Gore was upset and frustrated. There was no question about that.

But Gore said his anger was with the team’s 27-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday not with his involvement – or lack thereof -- in the team’s offense.

Gore bristled at any notion that he might be upset with coach Jim Harbaugh or offensive coordinator Greg Roman. And he certainly was not yelling at Harbaugh on the sideline he said.

“I’m cool with Harbaugh” Gore said on Tuesday. “That’s not me anyway. That’s not me. I’m good.

“I just wanted to win. I wasn’t thinking about how many times I touched the ball. I just wanted to win. Get that nasty taste out of our mouth. That’s what I was thinking about.”

Gore gained just 60 yards on 30 rushing attempts in the first two games of the season including the 29-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sept. 15. On Sunday he had 70 yards on eight carries in the first half against the Colts. After carrying three of the 49ers’ first four plays of the second half Gore did not have another rushing attempt in the game. The 49ers had five three-and-outs against Indianapolis.

“I think it’s more of a function of staying on the field and having the opportunity to get into a rhythm and calling those plays” 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman said. “The past two games aside from late in the game when you’re in two-minute mode we’ve had very few base downs to get into a rhythm.

“So we got to do a better job of extending drives making first downs and creating opportunities for ourselves to get into a flow get into a rhythm.”

Gore said it makes little difference to him whether he is running the ball pass-protecting or catching passes out of the backfield. The bottom line is he is upset that the 49ers have lost consecutive games for the first time since Harbaugh took over as coach.

“Coach G-Ro called the plays” Gore said. “Whatever he called we’re going to try to make it work. And I wasn’t thinking about how many times I was touching the ball. I just wanted to get a W that’s all.

”We just got to do whatever it takes to win. That’s what we’re about. If it’s running let’s run. If it’s throwing it’s throwing. It’s whatever it takes.”
