See, the major problem with that comparison is that the 49ers didn't have their punt returner and therefore had to rely on a guy who had a week's worth of practice. He made a mistake and they lost. The Texans did have their punt returner of FIVE SEASONS and therefore lost.

If the 49ers want to let Ted Ginn hit free agency, I'd be more than happy to grab him. THAT's their punt returner.

Yep. If Ginn is there, Niners win that game.

I think we should look at getting a new equipment manager. I saw a quite a few decals coming off helmets this past season.

Always wondered that too. He has a pretty good reputation (I think) and my guess is he just enjoys coaching special teams and doesn't want to coach any other position.

Joe M. has adopted a special needs son (autism) and that takes all his non-football time. He doesn't want to devote the time commitment required to be a head coach or even a coordinator because it would take away from caring for his son.

He put his care of his adopted son before any football ambitions.

I still do not believe you provided sufficient claims for firing the guy. He's been here since day 1, so he must be doing something right.
Calm down guy. My earlier post that started the thread clearly indicated what I noticed and ASKED the question if it is time to look for his replacement - meaning I'm not too sure and don't want to place my thougt process on just what I've noticed from a game the week before.

You know,that message boards aren't only used to state what you know as a fan but also to ask other fans who have the time and energy to look up stats for.

When I said go look at the games, I was really asking for you to look at the games because I don't have time to go back and look at them myself.

This explains alot about why coach Joe hasn't adjusted as well as he should have. His time is better spent elsewhere.

THANK YOU so much for giving me an honest answer instead of a smarta*s one like "he coaches special teams!" ST coaches can excel in their careers the same as anyone else! Can't help but admire a man like that! He has NOT been a bad STs coach, and if we keep him around until he retires, I'm ok with that. It's not his fault JJ makes dumb decisions, or KB or NR shanks an important kick! Replace the player, not the coach.

I wouldn't go that far. Jacoby runs sideways & backwards because the gunners generally have a free shot at him.

Jason Allen & Brice McCain need to be replaced with more physical guys, or persuaded to play more physically. They both have the speed, but refuse to "get dirty"

Our return game hasn't been so special. Much of it could be attributed to the new kickoff rules and our defense not really giving up alot of points but our punt return game hasn't been the best either and we usually see our gunners getting burned.

Then we look at our FG kicker and missed FGs. Our cover unit is okay but not spectacular.

Is it time to start looking for Joe's replacement? Remember what upgrading a coach on one of the 3 phases of the game did for us this past year.
I think a thread a couple months back address this also. I think coach is still good but as Kubes noted with all the injuries, Marciano has had to make do with back up guys.
JJ just "went stupid". That is not on ST coach but on head coach if he allows it to keep occuring.

Two things.

We used the injury excuse for Marciano last year.

& a good coach will address mistakes even when they "work out" & try to correct them. Did not happen here. Should have, but did not.

The injury excuse both years was justified not sure of your point? If the mistake you are refering to is JJ the only "work out" is firing him and that is on Kubes.

I think our defense played better in part to having better depth. That depth was also part of our special teams.

The "mistakes" I'm referring to, has more to do with the gunners running free down the field. Not excusing Jacoby from his play-off blunder, but why was there no one between Jimmy Smith & Jacoby.
