Barlow trade goes down

Apparently, those talks with the Jets got serious in a hurry.

The 49ers announced just minutes ago that RB Kevan Barlow has been traded to the Jets for an undisclosed 2007 draft pick. Coach Mike Nolan has already spoken with Barlow. He has to pass a physical for the trade to become official.

"This is a great opportunity for Kevan because of New York's need at running back," Nolan said in a statement released through the team. "Kevan has been committed to our program and done well. With the depth at running back we felt we could make this move."

It had become apparent that Frank Gore had outperformed Barlow during training camp. Gore was edging into position to be the starter, but because of his injury history it could be understood why the 49ers were not eager to trade Barlow. But the 49ers had pretty good depth behind Barlow, with backup Maurice Hicks, and third-down backs Michael Robinson and Terry Jackson.

Retirement for Curtis Martin...? They must have really wanted KB to fill in for a reason. No faith in Blaylock and Houston or at least 1 o' em you'd think. Could be a good thing for both Barlow and the Jets though... change of scenery and maybe a breath of fresh air for their locker room...

Good luck to him, hope he does well seeing as I've been a fan of KB :ok:

49ers | Barlow says Nolan has too much power
Wed, 23 Aug 2006 00:59:23 -0700

Cam Inman, of MediaNews, reports New York Jets RB Kevan Barlow lashed out at San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan after being traded for a 2007 fourth-round draft pick. Barlow said, "Nolan just doesn't know what he's doing. He's a first-time head coach with too much power. He has too much power as a first-time head coach. He walks around with a chip on his shoulder, like he's a dictator, like he's Hitler. People are scared of him. If it ain't Nolan's way, it's the highway." He later softened his stance and said, "I was kind of harsh on him, saying he's a dictator. That's bad. Saddam Hussein is a dictator. I was speaking on emotion." Barlow believes Nolan has not respect for him or the 49ers organization. "[Former 49ers head coach] Bill Walsh set the standard there, and he ain't living up to it." Barlow also claims no one has a good relationship with the coach, except for possibly QB Alex D. Smith. He added, "Nobody has a good relationship with Coach Nolan, and the only person that does is probably (quarterback) Alex Smith. He does because (Nolan) picked him. His job is in Alex Smith's hands. Coach Nolan could be a good head coach, but he's not going to be because he has too much power. He calls all the shots. He needs somebody above his head. He doesn't know what he's doing."

Marking this down as aguy who is young and doesn't know how to play the cliche game yet. I'm mean one week coach tells you your safe and there will be no trades. Then other day he hears it second hand from the media. He was mad from being embarrassed and surprised. Noland is going to have a very short career if he keeps that up. Was Barlow wrong ..absolutely. Was Noland a total a-hole for handeling the trade like he did ? The organazation has been pretty classless for awhile now. There is a reason they're bottom feeding. The fecies always rolls down hill.
Kinda like when someone slaped Moon with the wife beater charge befor the HOF
inductions. Was Moon wrong for hittting Felecia ? ablsolutley. But if your wife rings up 500k in charges on the old credit cards, be interesting to see how you'd react ? I've never hit my wife befor, but I know me...I'd be pi$$ed.

Nolan didn't lie to Barlow about the trade.

Nolan said Tuesday he has spoken with Barlow about the rumor, telling the sixth-year veteran there have not been "serious talks." But Nolan said Wednesday he has not promised Barlow that he'll be on the team.

"No, I just reassured him I'm not having any communication," Nolan said. "But I wouldn't reassure anybody they'll be with this team right now."
