Fire Mike Nolan? See What Good It Does.

You really want to be the next team to do that? Fire a coach who isn’t at fault, so he can learn from his mistakes only to win the big one elsewhere? Nolan is not at fault.

Firing Nolan is one probably the worst possible move to make. He is not to blame for the team’s dissapointing loss as much as it is others. In fact, Nolan’s presence can/will facilitate a winning team in the NFL, and it will be this 49er team. Head Coach needs things going on around him just like others players need the cooperation and assitance of their teammates on every down. What Nolan doesn’t have is an offensive scheme that can keep a defense off-balance, based on our execution. Our Qb play since Nolan has been here has always resulted in a very low ceiling for what the offense could try and do. Nolan doesn’t have crafty veterans who have earned there stripes in the playoffs and seen it all, he has a team who’s heart is young. In this case, stupid too. But there is time to right it, in these next 4 weeks, like Nolan has said, and next season. Which he will spend in San Francisco, still wearing the suit. Because what Nolan does have is an excellent partnership with the FO, which makes for a team that has excelled in the past years drafts. He has brought in players who buy into a team attitude, a very healthy and efficient personality where players get better. No player in the locker room after a loss will tell you they truly think a change at the top is the difference. The 49ers are a close team, which will bring winning. We should be lucky we havent had our locker room turn into he average one, with players concerned with nothing but money and fantasy league value. Nolan did well in bringing several impact players, with a great deal of them nearly elite players at their position. Frank Gore, Patrick Willis, Manny Lawson are all players who have made a big name early. Players like Davis and Staley, look like the will be worth there draft status soon enough. The FO did a great job in Free Agency getting Nate Clemetns and Michael Lewis, shoring up the big problems areas by turning them into strengths. I truly beleive this is on the offense, and those closer to the field are responsible.
