In other former skins' defensive coordinator news...

George Edwards has supposedly joined Nick Saban's staff in Miami. Not sure in what capacity

Yes and he continued that smack at his news conference. George Michaels ran it on the 6:00 sports report. He put down the Skins. Not to sure if it was Norv he was putting down or the owner. But when he commented on all the great coaches he has worked with he mentioned everyone except Norv.

Wow...I at least want San Fran to be somewhat competitive when they play us...we had even taken their field goal kicker...lol

Seriously though....wow talk about a Franchise that has went down the tubes. I honestly used to be scared when I saw San Fran on the schedule for us! Now...I would love it if we played them twice a year!

It is so weird how things have changed....I used to make fun of New England because they were THE worst team in the league......and San Fran had the dynasty. Now, the roles are reversed....well if NE wins the SB this year too...

Funny you say that, the roles have indeed been reversed

The 49ers were so good for so long it's strange to see them falling this hard. Kinda reminds me of another once proud franchise that was a great team in the 80's and early 90's.

Scott Ostler wrote his column in the SF Chronicle today on the hiring of Mike Nolan. Here is the last paragraph. This sort of sums up what hiring a new coach means to a franchise:


"Nolan was criticized as a coach when he coached bad players and was praised when he coached good players, so the 49ers, given the choice, should try to draft and sign good players."

Hard to believe the same Mike Nolan that ran a swiss cheese defense here with us is now a head coach.

They have a sign outside the practice facillity that they're paying 10 dollars an hour for D -linemen and WRs.

Matty:

That same defensive coordinator who had a "swiss cheese defense" here ALSO coached the Ravens' defense and they were VERY good. It's an example of better talent on the field making a coach look good and poorer talent on the field making a coach look bad.

My recollection is that Nolan was here in the "final throes" of the Norv Turner era just as Danny Boy bought the team and started making moves. That was not a team that overly-endowed with great players but they always seemed to be better than 5-11.

Actually, Ray Rhodes was our defensive coordinator during the "twilight" of Norv Turner's coaching career.
