dead man walking really. It's not like they made any significant improvements while he was there, and they do have a lot of talent.

I did not expect it at this point. The guy struck me as more of an egomaniac than most.

ETA; I'm PUMPED that Singletary will be taking over. About doggone time!

I never like seeing a guy get fired, but I've been wanting to see Singeltary in a head coaching gig for the last couple years. Still wish we would have picked him over Cam...

You and me both. With all the talk of minority coaching intervies, etc, I'm amazed that this guy has been overlooked. I'd be proud to have Singletary coach my team.

He's been relieved of his head coaching duties in San Franciso.

Who wants a swift kick in the nuts if they start a thread about him landing with the Dolphins because he's a "Parcells guy?"

Is he a parcells guy?

Don't know if they will bring him here, but he would probably be an upgrade over Paul Pasqualoni as Defensive Coordinator.

if he's a parcells guy and knows defense then i dont see what the harm would be. Im not sure tho how good the 49ers defense has been.

They're 23rd in overall team defense.

what are we? we're probably not much better. Though i dont see anyone hiring and firing assist. coaches or coordinators DURING the season.

Nolan was the d-coordinator for the ny giants before he became 49ers coach... and the giants defense under him was top notch... i'll take him in miami!!!

if he'd be an upgrade Paul Pasqualoni, and if he was in NY with parcells he would have used LT there, and can do the same with porter. He can probably give us a better D overall.

I would like to see alot more coaches look professional and wear suits though. The NFL needs to quit making these coaches wear some of the ridiculous looking stuff they allow them to choose from in order to promote the league merchandise.

And Bellicheat should be banned from wearing hoodies. For christ sakes, if its cold give the guy a sharp looking sweater and say wear this. Although a nice suit and a professional looking overcoat would be much better. Can you imagine Lombardi standing on the sidelines in those old clips wearing a freakin hoodie? What is he, in middle school???

We're 21st. Why not during the season? the 49ers just fired Nolan DURING the season. Although I don't expect us to go that route because I think we're headed in the right direction...

Maybe that's what you were referring to.

How bout the 49ers giving a class act like Mike Singletary a shot at the HC position??:up:

That's what I'm talking about. I've been banging around alot of years about letting Mike have his go. That man is, in the modern era, one of the best players at any position ever. He's a student of the game.

Not saying that he was a great coach, or the right man for the job, but what is San Francisco realistically expecting with the guy? Like ChambersWI said, it's not like they made any significant improvements for him. I guess his major downfall was being the guy who drafted Alex Smith, a move that appears to have really set the franchise back. Although maybe if they got a more offensive oriented guy, Smith could play? He was pretty solid under Norv Turner when he was their OC. Now it's Martz and that guy is out of his mind.

I will miss Mike Nolan though, his snazzy suits. All coaches should wear suits!

They really should. You'd never see Tom Landy walking the sidelines in a Cowboys hoody and sweat band. Hank Stram would be wearing a shirt and tie not some "Chiefs Football" sweat shirt. It's ridiculous that coaches in any sport (including baseball) wear team apparrell.

Mike Nolan is a damn good defensive coordinator, probably much better than the one we currently have and if you want to run the 3-4 Nolan knows it to a tee.

Actually he was with the Giants in the 90's . He was the coordinator for the Ravens during thier best defensive years.

He was my first choice to coach the fins.
Im glad to see someone finally gave him a shot at HC. He is class class class

I think Holmgren lands in San Francisco at the end of the year..either as HC or GM..maybe both?

I wouldn't mind Nolan here as one of the D coaches..he just sucks in the HC role..thats all. Poor clock management.

I thought Nolan was linked more to Dan Reeves than Parcells. SF should be better than what they are. They've got a building block on offense in Gore and Willis is a stud. Winning 18 games in 3 1/2 years and he should've been fired prior to the season.

I'm not a fan of the suit on the sideline. The only thing more ridiculous IMO, is baseball managers wearing jerseys.

I like the sideline suits.

I'm pretty sure Nolan is NOT a parcells disciple.

I saw this firing coming. I think I posted a few weeks ago about some coaches that I thought would get fired, Linehan, Marineli, and Nolan were in that list.

Not sure about Rod, the Ford family really likes him. And I do think he is a very good coach too.

Linhan deserved to get fired no doubt. Look how Haslett has that team playing. As soon as Linhan benched bulger to start Green I knew linhan was an idiot.

Im sure you are.

Yea, nothing says class like dropping your pants in front of the whole team at halftime to make the point that they are getting their *** kicked. :rolleyes:


At this point, Singletary is looking like nothing more than a ranting lunatic. And he is only one week in. Wow.
