About the only consolation is noticing how many times the 49ers were ranked last in the league, although they still beat us.

Carr's passer rating was middle of the pack despite the fact that we led the league in sacks allowed (by a wide margin) AGAIN. God, I'm sick of leading the league in that category.

hmm makes me wonder why Marciano was fired .. ST didn't do bad.. Yeah our punting ave wasn't too good, but we made up for punting inside the 20 and not giving up too many touchbacks..

Yeah Chris Brown is part of the ST that "missed" some FG,but for those that hate on him, I wonder how many are happy to have a chance to either draft or deal Reggie Bush *wink wink nudge nudge*

Probably so the new coach can bring in his own staff from top to bottom.

The San Fran game didn't do Carr any favors - he was 19th in QB rating before the game... he ended up with his 2nd worse QB rating this year in a game (Buffalo being the worse).

We should trade Carr for Manning since he has a better rating then him...

If you can make that happen, I'm sure McNair would hire you on the spot.

The new coach will have the opportunity to interview any of our coaches from this year and decide if he wants to keep any, assuming they don't get signed by another team first, but Hoke is the only one I'm worried about getting picked up by another team before our new coach has a chance to look at them. From my understanding, the rest of the coaches are under contract thru the end of January and will stay on and are expected to be at work but are permitted to interview with other teams and may end up keeping their jobs past January if our new head coach wants to keep them.

Mork another damn good post, How is it that you are still a team player, probably because I cannot give you any more rep points. Damn shame. Anyway lookin forward to your next post pimpin. Strange how solid we are in the running game, but need Reggie Bush. Not trying to start more Reggie pandemonium is such a fine thread, but it just makes me wonder.
