We are waiting, we are waiting, oh yeah, oh yeah
Waiting for someone to come out of somewhere
We should have had a new head coach announced on Monday, but all we heard were crickets. This can only mean one of two things:
1. The rock-paper-scissors game has now become the best 200 out of 300.
2. The 49ers are floating as many names past the public as possible, in order to find out which choice is the most popular one with the fans.
If they knew who they wanted, they would have either hired him by now, or waited for him to become available without this parade of interviews. I suppose it’s possible they’ve just been turned down over and over again, which would be surprising. What guy wouldn’t want to work for a dysfunctional franchise, run by a cheap, petty, little boy, that expects Super Bowl victories every year or sends out nasty Tweets of displeasure during the season. A real plum job.
So far, we’ve heard the Niners really like Rex Ryan (hired by Buffalo on Monday), and really like Josh McDaniels (decides to stay with Patriots on Monday), and Jim Tomsula is a Trent Baalke favorite, but hasn’t had a formal interview yet, and Vic Fangio was the first interview, two weeks ago, for six hours, …
The latest hot Niner favorite is Broncos’ OC Adam Gase. Some think he will be hired today. If so, many will think WTF! Gase runs an entirely different offense than the players we now have are suited for. If Gase ran the Denver offense at all. John Elway doesn’t want him, preferring to try and lure Gary Kubiak away from Baltimore.
Vic Fangio seems to be the leader in the clubhouse for fallback option. “Hey, Vic, you’ll be a great choice if we can’t find anyone else.” Except Fangio is reported to be leaving if he doesn’t get the job or Mike Shanahan isn’t the HC. What a mess.
But, stay tuned, Niner fans. We know what we’re doing!
