Bring In The Next One

Here we are again, embarked on a world wide search for the 49ers next head coach.

Jed York dismissed the idea, at his presser, that the team would have trouble attracting a good coach. This was an attempt to evade discussing the damage he and GM Trent Baalke had done to the franchise credibility and to pretend like it didn’t matter. Sorry, Jed. Flunk.

York and Baalke couldn’t even utter Jim Harbaugh‘s name this past year, but when they were explaining their batting averages, Harbaugh was claimed as a HIT and Tomsula a swing and a miss. Which of course brought up the obvious question of why did they fire the HIT in the first place. Next question, please.

A few kool-aid gulpers thought it was admirable that York stood up there and “held himself accountable.” Uh, what else was he supposed to do? I mean, they’ve got a half-empty stadium, planes flying over it reaming York, media from all around the country treating him like a laughingstock. A little tough to ignore.

In addition, a close perusal of Jed’s ears revealed a distinctly box-shaped arrangement, with a reddish hue. It was not possible to ascertain whether mommy and daddy had also administered the Adrian Peterson treatment, probably shortly after the grand debacle in Cleveland which embarrassed the entire family, so we’ll leave that to your imagination — in case you haven’t suffered enough yet.

At any rate, it’s anybody’s guess how long this year’s charade will endure before the next 49er HC is introduced, with great fanfare, but no doubt a lot of skepticism, disappointment, anger, despair, eyeball-rolling disbelief. And only a snowball’s chance in hell that we will be getting someone who can turn this club into a playoff contender.

In the meantime, after four months of watching the 49ers, it will be a pleasant change to view some decent football teams this coming month.

    Schefter of ESPN reporting
    “49ers meeting w/ Browns OC John Defilippo.”

  2. winderNo Gravatar says:

    They screwed the pooch by not firing Baalke. There is a saying about doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. It just ain’t gonna happen. But I am sure the FO has a lot of lipstick.

  3. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Chip Kelly has a lot of ex players speaking out against him.
    Seems to be not the easiest guy to get along with.
    CBS reporting that Egos had to reschedule their traditional Christmas party because Chip wouldn’t do a workaround and that might have been one of the final straws that led to his firing.

    The fact that so far no other team has called Chip for an interview should raise red flags.

  4. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    NFL teams playing long ball successfully, look at their OC’s. Steelers Todd Haley and Panthers Mike Shula. Maybe it is time for a HC retry with Todd Haley. Coaches learn and grow too.

    Blow up the dink and dunk and bring in the long ball. Draft OL that can pass pro.

  5. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Per Greg Rosenthal Tom Gamble is no fan of Chip Kelly.

    When Kelly won his power over personnel Gamble was escorted out of the building in Philly by security.

  6. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Was told that Chip Kelly and Mike Shanahan are open to working with CK as starter. FO may still try to foist CK as starter? Hopefully not.

  7. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Kawakami says that it’ll be Hue Jackson if he doesn’t blow the interview on Sunday and some other team doesn’t make him a better offer.
    He seems to be the #1 choice of Baalke because in 2010 Jackson had a better interview than Harbaugh.

  8. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    First domino falls as Gase is hired to coach Miami.

  9. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Egos are interviewing Tom Coughlin to be their new HC

  10. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If Hue Jackson is hired per Albert Breer

    “Hue Jackson interviews with 49ers and Browns tomorrow. If he lands one, Vance Joseph will be a target as DC, Mike Solari perhaps as OC”

  11. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    If Solari is OC there’s a good chance Rathman will remain as the RB coach

  12. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Gase the best hire, lauded by Manning and Cutler. Was Todd Haley the KC OC when they humiliated and laughed at us with their MLB laughing and calling out the play pre-snap.

    Oh the legend of Jimmy “hat” and Mike Singletary. Highly paid coaches and all the D had to do to know what was coming was look at the formation.

    WHT aren’t we going after Haley.

  13. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    O line coach as OC. Grump, pass the bottle. Jed and his franchise wrecking ball. Top 10 pick in 2017 coming up.

    Phuck, just feed the IV tubes into a Crown Royal bottle for me. No mixers, I’ll take it straight. This route spares any intestinal surgeries. Obamacare should give me credits for that.

  14. bakkentomNo Gravatar says:

    Would not surprise me if Blaine Gabbert traded to the Texans and the Jed crew go all in on Kaepernick after he threatens an injury lawsuit April 1.

    Gase and Payton gone. Retread candidates left. Where is Todd Haley. Does Arians have a coaching tree.

    Fresh garbage incoming.

  15. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Chiefs win first playoff game since 1994, when Montana was their QB.

    If Bengals win tonight, Dalton still won’t have won a playoff game.

  16. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    The QB that won that game for KC wasn’t Alex Smith.

  17. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Hue Jackson started calling plays to move the ball in the fourth quarter. Lots of folks already praising him as our new head coach. They won’t as soon as he runs that offense here.

    The dirty players finally had to pay the correct price for their head-hunting. Some folks don’t care what happens on the field to players they don’t like. Some refs, too.

  18. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    I think Hue will take any HC job he can get right now. Which qualifies him to be a 49er candidate, since the Niners will take any name they can get, too.

  19. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    What’s wrong with this report?

    “Owner Jed York is in Cincinnati to interview Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson today.”

  20. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    It’s a Rooney Rule sham to clear the way for the promotion of the locker room laundry guy.

    Shoot for the stars my friend.
    I’m hearing the Head Groundskeeper has been turning plenty of heads these days 😀

  22. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Really getting old having the zebras in the bag for the Seahawks all season and now we have the announcers along cheering for them as well. As if listening to mush-mouth Michaels isn’t torture enough by itself, or ‘itshelf.’

  23. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    Half way through the third Q and both teams barely breaking a hundred yards of offense.

    Seahawks shutting down Peterson and Vikings shutting down Wilson.

  26. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    NJ

    The WR both you I thought the Niners should draft was a steal for the Vikes in 5th round.
    Stefon Diggs woukld have been a great pick but Baalke is incapable of making picks like this.

    Remember Antonio Brown was a sixth round pick.

  27. bullitNo Gravatar says:

    Vikes up 9-0.

  30. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    My bad Bullit – My apologies to Joan.
    Seems Hue Jackson wrapped up a 5hr interview with us, and, is going forward with the Cleveland interview.

    What in God’s name could Jed have accomplished in 5hrs that didn’t include an offer?
    Cue the Organ Grinder melody…..

  31. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    But…then again.
    When negotiating with Jed…

    You can’t spell Clever or Leverage without Cleveland 😀

  32. NoFear49erNo Gravatar says:

    …and the evidence mounts that Carroll did in fact sell his soul, or maybe Sherman is the spawn of Hell’s angel.

    NJ49er, Moms left strict orders; don’t do a thing until reporting to me for approval first. It’s a short trip to Youngstown.

  34. winderNo Gravatar says:

    I think someone else said it in an earlier post but I will say it again. The 49ers-dolphins superbowl should be required viewing for all college and pro qb’s. Just finished watching it again and the level of offensive play us rarely seen in the NFL of today. Oh Yeah, Hope the Skins dismantle the Packers.

  35. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Word of the Day NoFear49er, when including Jed/Moms & Daddy – MEDDLING.
    This sh!t is getting OLD.

    Perhaps I should include CHEAP as well, though I’m sure that’s a given.

  36. SkeebersNo Gravatar says:

    Jason Cole says Hue Jackson “turned down overtures from the 49ers who were interested in possibly hiring him as early as Sunday.”

    Jason Cole says Hue Jackson turned down Jed/Baalke as they couldn’t arrive at an agreement.
    Stay tuned.

  41. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Two Hue Jackson Issues:

    1.) Why is Hue Jackson a good choice in SF? Going after Hue Jackson shows again just how stupid Baalke and York are. Jackson did nothing with the Raiders except get pedicures and trade away a boatload of picks for Carson Palmer in the Al Davis death vacuum.

    So why is Hue Jackson the hot choice now? Because he’s running a very effective passing attack that’s been built properly over the years. Ironically, the very same draft picks that the Raiders gave up for Carson Palmer at the request of Jackson helped build the Bengals into the team they are today (thug life aside). And how do you build your team? It’s a four step process (with some variations).

    1.) Offensive and Defensive Linemen
    2.) Running backs and Linebackers
    3.) Secondary and Pass Rushers
    4.) QB and WRs

    So even though Dalton and Green were drafted long ago, the team wasn’t able to really have a potent passing attack until the rest of the team was filled in with good draft picks and Carson Palmer supplements. What’s my point? Well, the point is that the Bengals, aside from being a completely moronic team in playoff crunch time, have a complete roster, which allowed Hue Jackson to shine. How’d he do with the Raiders that weren’t a complete team?

    If Baalke and York had any clue what-so-ever, they’d be looking for a smashmouth head coach like Greg Schiano or even Mike Singletary to help rebuild the team with fundamentals and toughness while Baalke worked to rebuild the O and D lines, then the front seven and running backs, and finally the secondary and passing attack. Baalke and York looking for a pass minded OC (while the team still can’t tie its own shoes) once again shows what a couple of clowns these two really are. You don’t get to be a top rated passing attack without a defense, offensive line and rushing attack. You need those first. A passing attack is the last thing you acquire in your rebuild – and again, Hue Jackson is a pass-oriented OC.

    2.) The second Hue Jackson issue is that Hue just saw Jed tweeting “unacceptable,” while Baalke’s daughter attacked the OC, while Deion Sanders falsely claimed Harbaugh had lost the locker room while Craig Dahl and Chris Culliver were hand-delivering intercepted footballs to Harbaugh along the sidelines mid=game. Hue Jackson saw the York circus. There was no ownership insight or support for a great coach… and the roster was a lot better then. And what about Tomsula? Was it fair to fire Tomsula? Was Tomsula really put into a position to succeed by York? Think Jackson hasn’t witnessed all of this? That translates to one thing: Pay me.

    Hue knows that SF is a dead-end for coaches. And Hue’s already been a head coach once before… unsuccessfully. You don’t get too many shots at being a head coach in the NFL. So if the 49ers are a dead-end job for Jackson, and it’ll show on his resume that he’s a failed NFL head coach twice, you’re gonna have to pay Jackson a boatload of money to kill his NFL coaching career for good.

    I’ve been writing this for the last year… The York smear campaign against Harbaugh hurt the 49er organization far more than it did Harbaugh. Coaching is everything in the NFL. York won’t be able to hire a good head coach for the next decade. Trust me… the 49ers will suck for a long, long time.

  42. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    Hue Jackson was good with the Bengals because the Bengals (on offense) had Eifert, Green, Bernard, Hill and Marvin Jones. Even Dalton could make that group productive. And certainly Hue Jackson deserves credit because he didn’t screw it up. If defenses doubled Green and Eifert, Jackson ran the ball with Hill and Bernard. If defenses doubled Green and Eifert, Hue and Dalton still threw the football to Marvin Jones. In short, Hue had weapons to go along with an offensive line.

    Who’s Hue going to have in SF? Vance McDonald is no Tyler Eifert. Torrey Smith is no AJ Green. Carlos Hyde isn’t Hill and Mike Davis isn’t Bernard. And let’s not even mention that the 49ers’ offensive line sucks, especially compared to the Bengals’ O line.

    So next year, whomever is the 49ers’ head coach, they’ll have to run the ball and try to be creative with young offensive linemen and young, unproven running backs. That alone will be difficult to do. Hue Jackson isn’t a good candidate to take over this rebuild.

    It’s being rumored he’s already agreed to coach the 49ers, and if it’s true, Jackson will last two years, then he’ll be fired. But if it’s not true, Jackson has much better options with the Giants, Eagles and Titans. The Giants have Eli and Beckham. If I’m a betting man, I’m betting Hue Jackson is the next coach of the Giants. I’d take a lot less money to coach in NY than I would in SF. And the Giants have Jerry Reese who, in the past, was a good GM. Lately, not so much. But he’s better than Baalke.

  43. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Not that high on Hue, but what really makes me puke is, I think Hue might prefer to go to Cleveland if he gets an equal offer, than come deal with the Dorks.

    Chew on that one a while, Boys. Rejected in favor of Cleveland.

    FML.

  44. Sir Spitblood from GeneoushireNo Gravatar says:

    If I was Jed York, I’d hire Greg Schiano. Actually, I’d off myself because there’d be no hope, but I digress. Schiano is currently the D coordinator for the Ohio State Buckeyes. Two people have recently said Schiano should get another crack at being an NFL head coach – Bill Bilichick and Darrelle Revis. That’s pretty good company. Revis played under Schiano for one year in Tampa.

    Schiano inherited Josh Freeman, then correctly demoted him to the bench in favor of…. some tall, goofy white dude. Then Schiano toughened-up the team that he was rebuilding only to be scapegoated by the Glazers much like Tomsula was just scapegoated by the Yorks. However, unlike Tomsula, Schiano has chops. The Glazers fired John Gruden and Tony Dungy. What the hell do they know?

    But Jed York won’t go the Schiano or smashmouth coach route because York needs a media win when hiring his next head coach. Chip Kelly would work, although Kelly is a Mike Martz redux and he’d be a disaster. But Kelly, for a time, would put butts in the seats. But it’s rumored that even the lowly Kelly asked York point-blank what happened with Harbaugh (meaning Kelly was concerned he’d be treated fairly by York, which is an obvious concern).

    York needs a big name because people are walking away from Levi stadium faster than Syrian refugees fleeing their country’s apocalypses. But York thinks he’s clever. York (and Baalke for that matter) listen to the insider rumors and think they’re smarter than the field. Gase? Hue Jackson? “Let’s get the next up-and-coming OC who’s had success with talents like Manning and AJ Green…” Nevermind that the 49er roster is now about as talented as the Northeastern New Mexico Wildcats.

    What makes a good coach for a team that’s rebuilding? It’s NOT the hot coordinator who just had success with great players like Gase and Jackson. The right coach for a rebuild is a coach who teaches discipline, fundamentals and weeds-out the cry babies. That’s Schiano. But owners don’t really care about winning in the long run. They only care about winning now.

  45. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    We’ll end up with Koetter if TB doesn’t secure his services, just watch.
    He’s tied to Gabbert via JAX.

    Our issue is Ownership being cheap and, impatient.
    Jed just threw away $14M on Jimi T.
    He’s likely going to attempt to recoup the losses with the next hire.
    Which means, we’ll likely settle for someone desperate, not someone especially qualified.

    NYG have stable Ownership.
    GM Reese has been horrible with the Defense in recent years too.

    I’m growing increasingly more numb to our situation by the week.
    It’s beyond laughable now.

  46. NJ49erNo Gravatar says:

    Smart move is to stick with the Offensive-minded guy however.
    Kaep’s Contract is prohibitive now for what he’s produced.
    We’re starving for Offense and, we all know that starts, and ends, with the QB.
    Until you have one, you’re spinning your wheels when it comes to fixing the Offense.
    Someone has to have a secure handle on building an Offense.

    I’d have taken a chance on former Ohio State OC Tom Herman before he accepted the Houston Cougar HC gig.
    Too late now.
    Which is probably why Koetter is in the mix.
    He’s only held the HC position while in College.

  47. Grumpy GuyNo Gravatar says:

    Whoever we get will probably fail, because our front office is about as screwed up as North Korea, and because Baalke has not been able to get quality personnel in the middle rounds.

    Next year it’ll be Baalke’s turn under the bus, and Jed will find some other wrong person to give the reins to, and some new rat to spy on them.

    Like Samuel L. Jackson might say, “The Mother F*cking Wheels on the Bus go Round and Round.”

    FML.

    That sucks.

  50. winderNo Gravatar says:

    The 49ers situation is starting to look just like last years fiasco. I don’t believe that Jed has totally ruined the prestige of being part of the organization. But, if he doesn’t act quickly and sensibly then he will certainly put us into a hole for quite a while. In my mind he should have cleaned house and stepped out of the way. I don’t believe we will get any better with another Baalke draft.
