    Plays that work are BOB plays. Plays that don't work are up to debate over which person selected them or it's also a possibility that the players just didn't execute.

    Maybe he got bored teaching those creative routes O’Brien runs.

    Jimmy Johnson and BB's coaching trees would disagree with this statement. Unless you think BOB is doing a great job.

    Lol

    I am curious whether Welker chose to leave or if he was not retained?

    Sure wish he would have stayed with the Texans.

    Can't blame a guy though for accepting a promotion and leaving.

    I do like the way our coaching staff has become a blend of experience and trainees.

    There are a lot more coaching trees out there than those two. Bill Walsh and Bill Parcells would agree. Unless you think BB and Mike Shannahan didn't do very good jobs. There's so much luck involved with whether or not a coach pans out, it isn't funny.

    Welker made a lateral change, not accepting a promotion. Same for the QB coach.

    Thanks DocB

    So he didn't get a WR coaching position.. Just changed teams. Guess he just wasn't happy here.

    I had read this article after my inquiry to cnnd "Former Houston Texans offensive assistant Wes Welker will be leaving to the San Francisco 49ers to become their wide receiver coach according to reports." - John McClain.

    That's why I thought he left for a promotion.

    Chances are he will learn a lot more about the passing game in SF as opposed to here. Should help his resume'.

    I wasn't too concerned with the QB coach change. Actually just the opposite.

    from what I have heard Ryan leaving was more of a soft firing. They knew he wanted the OC job, but they weren't going to give it to him and OB wanted an older, experienced QB coach who he could turn Deshaun over to and not have to worry as much about it. Since Smith's son is a coach on the team they probably knew they were going to be able to hire him, so they told Sean to go see if he could land another job so they didn't have to fire him.

    Welker leaving isn't really a big concern, assistant coaches switch teams often. Maybe he got more money from SF, maybe he likes the weather there better, and it certainly would help his resume learning a new system. He played in the EP for pretty much his whole career, so now he can go learn the WC

    I can't explain why but I just like the changes in the coaching staff.

    Don't know about Devlin but I think he will be expected to improve the O line performance if he wants to continue after next year.

    I like them to, they did what everyone was wanting them too. Hire an OC to take stuff off of Bob's plate, and bring a veteran coach in from outside the organization to help the offense. I was very luke warm on the Kelly promotion, was happy that we had a dedicated OC, but he has no track record to judge him on so it's one of those things that could go either way. I am freaking pumped about the Carl Smith hire though, very good QB coach who has had success in this league, and he also has been an OC before so he will be helping in the game planning department. I think the moves were solid, brings in an outside voice but won't completely change your offense around which is important for a young QB and team like ours

    When I look on 49ers related websites, the actual job title for Welker has not been named.

    Welker was promoted...........here he held assistant offensive and assistant ST coach status. The 49ers hired Welker as their WR coach....not an assistant coach.

    Whether we like it or not, we're just going to have to wait and see what the results are. I enjoy being right when my pessimistic views are born out, I also enjoy being wrong when good things happen when I said they wouldn't.

    That said, I remain pessimistic. :lol:

    As long as Devlin remains you have reason to be pessimistic. Dude has had five years to forge an effective O-line. Ain't happened.
    Alex Gibbs did it in two.
    ...just sayin'

    point taken, nit noted.
    Devlin has only had FOUR years to build a proficient O-line. He's about to go into year five.

    My point still stands. Gibbs did it in two.

    Gibbs was an all-time great that came out of retirement just to help Kubiak. He had been in Kubiak's system for years. Devlin is on what, his second OL coach gig? Might as well compare coconuts to cherries. If you expect Devlin to replicate Gibbs IDK what to tell you other than you are not being realistic
