Three in a Row and Nolan Still Has a Job

Hey at least I look good in a suit.

He at least I look good in a suit.

If Nolan still has a job after today, I don’t know what to say. Another game where the team could have won, and another game where poor coaching decisions resulted into a big fat ‘L’. Of course it doesn’t help that JT threw two picks and fumbled. He would not have been in the situation if Nolan would know how to coach, know how to challenge, and know when to go for two point conversions.

I’ll still be here updating the site and giving my two cents, but as long as Nolan is head coach of this team they will never amount to shit.

To top it all off the 49ers are only one game ahead of lowly St. Louis.




The Pundit of 49ersNews. I do what I can to supply the Niner fans with their fix.
  • crazydave

    O FUCK WE LOSE AGAIN its shocking !!!!!

  • josh

    the way we're being coached who know when we'll win again.

  • joe gomez

    To be in this game in the 4th Qtr is a surprise. We played good but it wasnt enough. Lets all thanks Paraag Marathe for the great job he did challenging and not challenging those plays up in the coaches booth! Yea im sure hes the right man for the job. Good game for Gore. Spikes 3 int's in 3 straight games, but wheres the rest of the Defense? Couldnt stop Buckhalter if their life depended on it. Vernon Davis had a pretty good game, doesn't look like a bust today. O'Sullivan yet another fumble in the pocket and an INT but otherwise had a decent game. Again, Nolan got out coached. Its time for his head to roll. We visit the Giants next.. looks like 2-5. Anxious to see who get in for the trade, will it be TJ or Roy? Still alot of football left, maybe we can shoot for 7-9. Hopefully McCloughan doesnt FUCK UP the draft again like hes been doing all these years.

  • Tim

    Frank ended with 19 carries.Martz is just as much to blame as Nolan today. The Cardinals are going to choke to.

  • joe gomez

    Niner Pundit… Were headed into the 7th week now.. Aaron Rogers had another big day, Desean Jackson another good game.. Is it still too early to say I TOLD YOU SO?

  • joe gomez

    Oh and Niner Pundit, Nolan doesnt make the decisions on when to challenge or when not to challenge. Paraag Marathe tells him on the headset when to do it.

  • Niner Pundit

    Joe…I know. That is reason enough to fire Nolan. He is relying on the financial guy to challenge.

  • joe gomez

    Well J.T. is still young as far as playing. He will only get better. The fumble I will blame on our pathetic line. The INT's can go either way, wrong route by the receiver is sometimes the case. Other than that he was haveing a pretty good game.

  • joe gomez

    Oh just found out Cards won on a blocked punt. Oh well.

  • NINERTIME

    rams beat the skins and ariZonA beat the cowgirls, meanwhile niners can't get to their bye soon enough!!!

  • Niner Pundit

    Ryan…I see it more as McCloughan's decision on firing Nolan. Almost seems after the whole Mooch debacle York isn't making to many rash decisions.

  • joe gomez

    Niner Pundit.. you might be right about that, I still would ov loved to see Desean in red and gold. So heres a question for everyone… whos worst? Erickson or Nolan.

  • joe gomez

    Brian Murphy of KNBR is ripping Nolan hard right now for his TWO stupid replay challenges and his No Challenge on the sidelines. He said Nolan has "NO CLUE!"

  • joe gomez

    My bad.. its Dan Patrick on KNBR whos rippiing Nolan hard. Hes saying Paraag Marathe shouldnt even be allowed in the building after this game.. haha.

  • http://www.hotmail.com Ryan the 1st

    Indeed, good info….so Niner Pundit…how long will it take before Nolan gets the BIG UGLY AXE??? What are Singletary's chances of taking over??? In case you haven't noticed….I AM HUGE ADVOCATE FOR GIVING SINGLETARY A SHOT!

  • joe gomez

    Adam, first I hope you had a great time in Europe, I always love vacationing there. As far as Nolan, its not just one challenge, we are talking about 3 different blown challenge or non challenge plays. The talent is on the field and I agree they arent performing, unfortunately all that comes down to the head coach. His explanation of the blown field goal challenge was just pathetic. He wanted the ref to signal after the FG was good or no good to also signal if it was over or under the top of the uprights. Now that is just plain stupid. Then we have a 4th and less than a yard and we put our punting unit out there and take our time and get a delay of game penalty when it was so obvious the Eagles had only 10 guys on the field. We could of easily snapped the ball real fast and got a first down from a penalty. You might not be ready for a change at the HC position but im ready and so is thousands and thousands of 49ers fans. ive had it with this guy.

  • Medford

    Why does everyone keep saying JT is young he has been in the league for 6yrs and he is 29 look at Matt Ryan in atlanta he doesnt fuck up in the 4th qtr.

    Whats up with not going for 2 before half time or after half wat were we waiting for?

    Look at the chargers kicking the pats ass

    HEY NATE CLEMENTS AND WALT HARRIS STOP PLAYING 15 YARDS OFF THE WR'S

  • Medford

    6:41 AND NOLAN STILL HAS HIS JOB

  • Medford

    Adam and Joe are u blind Nolan has been charge of this defense and they cant stop anyone. He needs to go now!!

    Stop making fucken it sound like Nolan is great he makes no half time adjustments and lets the dbs play 15yds off the wr.

  • gfong

    get rid of nolan along with his ice cream defense!!!!!

  • Ninaz

    Desean jackson would NOT have fit in this offense so STFU about that already!!! We cant use him as a return guy because we have Rossum, we cant use him in the core because our receivers are already top flight, Arnaz has better hands we dont need Jackson. out of all the stupid shit Nolan has done that was his best idea to pass on him because hes not needed. You just wanna wear a jersey with Jackson on the back. We need a fucking QB!

  • A True Niner Fan

    we got outscored 23-0 in the 4th quarter…seems like we didnt know how to play with the lead at all since we havent had it all year long.good to see Vernon get involved but then it dissappered in the 4th same with our entire offense…Martz seemed like he had everything flowin and then just ran out of script?….I cant belive theres people saying its not the coaching its the players? cause when it Keeps Happeneing Again & Again then its obviously Bad coaching otherwise players would learn eventually but they cant fix what they do wrong if there not getting coached right! somebody tell Nolan that a football Game is 60 Minutes not 45…..Im still pulling for a 4-4 at the Bye but the way were playing its getting harder to see really happening

  • josh

    The owners don’t care. How could they if they keep letting Mike Nolan coach. He totally embarrased himself with his decisions today.

  • crazydave

    Nolan and the quarterback fault this time Nolan challenges the wrong plays and loses us time outs for challenging a unchallengeable field goal and 2 interceptions and a fumble in the 4th quarter….

  • Roscoe49er

    It hurts to watch a game managed that badly. What else can we say that we haven’t said already. We Lose. They Win. All to Familiar.

  • Niner Pundit

    nope not at all Joe. They’ve showed they could do it over the course of time. That is all I was saying, one week was to early to tell. I mean look at JT. People thought he was doing well over a couple games stretch and now look at him.

  • joe gomez

    I agree, but will York actually pull that trigger? That guys a pussy.

  • NINERTIME

    come on, I hate Nolan so much but first of all that field goal was a no go. And Nolan is garbage but JTO has thrown some huge INT’s throughout every lose. Nolan sucks but today I have to say that JTO loses that game for us!

    We had so much success with gore and they went away from him in the 4th quarter. Early in the game I believe that Martz called a good game, no sacks from Philly because of the way he used Gore and other plays, but why the hell did they go away from that in the 4th!!!

    Nolan do us all a favor and RESIGN RIGHT NOW…this team does not know how to win with you!

  • joe gomez

    Lets see what the Cowboys do in OT against the Cards. We could actually still be in 2nd place. Can you believe it?

  • joe gomez

    NINERTIME.. very simple, in the 4th Qtr we started playing from behind. The clock was starting to turn against us so we needed some big plays fast.

  • Niner Pundit

    Ninertime…I can see it your way as well. I’m just totally numb to everything right now.

    Joe…one more thing on Jackson and Rodgers. They should thank their lucky stars they were not drafted by the 49ers, because on Nolan’s team they probably would have been shit. Since he does wonders on players with talent.

  • joe gomez

    We are behind AZ 2 games. Its still anyone’s division.

  • joe gomez

    Nolan’s on the radio now saying “we need to do a better job.” Yea no shit coach. Some things our idiot coach talked about: Josh Morgan got playing time over Bryant Johnson due to Johnson nursing some injuries. O-Line played better. Special Teams came up big with the blocked FG for a TD. Regarding the challenged FG, he himself saw the ball go wide right. I think hes covering for Paraag. He says its still too early in the season.

    FUCK NOLAN… HE NEEDS TO GO!

  • Niner Pundit

    Joe…agreed that it is still anyone’s division. But it’s most definitely not the 49ers with Nolan at head coach.

    Next week on the road in New York…that will be a raping.

  • http://www.hotmail.com Ryan the 1st

    ANYONE’S DIVISION??? If the season ended today we would have the 8th or 9th pick in the draft and it is ANYONE’S DIVISION???? We will be lucky to win six games!!! If the York’s cared a shred for the niners they would fire Nolan NOW!!!! We have NO CHANCE of beating the Giants….not with Nolan behind the helm. TO THE YORK FAMILY…..SHOW YOU HAVE SOME BRAINS AND FIRE NOLAN….then give the job to Singletary!

  • joe gomez

    Did we hire this dweeb just because his dad coached here? If he did than we need to start blaming the stupid Yorks more. Nolan didnt pick to be here, the owners picked him to be here. Now we have to FIRE yet another coach and interview somebody else. Its like a fucking revolving door. Will we ever get it right?

  • Lowrance

    I can agree on feeling numb. I used to yell at the screen at stupid plays and dumb calls. Now I just watch.

    Who in the world challenges a field goal when two refs stand underneath the gawd damn poles????!!!!!

    Sunday’s used to be something to look forward to. It’s hard to watch this. Not much has been fun to watch in the 2,000 era.
    Maybe next week I’ll put in an old Super Bowl tape and just TIVO the Giant/Niner game…..

  • Niner Pundit

    Joe…Nolan is much worse. I always liked Erickson and I say he got a raw deal. Not only did he have to work with Donahue, but he didn’t think they would gut the team like they did. I look at that one season under Erickson if they had a kicker they would have made the playoffs. I think if they have Erickson they have a much better record over the past 4 years.

    Also Erickson was good at evaluating players. He wanted Steven Jackson (Donahue said no) also wanted to give up a 7th rounder for TJ Houshamanzadeh, but Donahue said no. If Erickson had the same time Nolan did they team would be better off today. Not saying Erickson would still be around, but they wouldn’t have sucked as bad.

  • joe gomez

    Good point by Murphy: On 4th and less than a yard, we took a delay of game penalty because we took our time with our punt unit. We couldve easilty got the Eagles on 10 men on the field due to their confusion on which unit to send out and Nolan didnt recognize it.

  • ninervalley

    Another medicore game, what a suprise. Next week is most defenitely gonna be a raping, there is absolutely no reason for me to watch that game because we all know the outcome….Niners lose by a lot!!! Nolan probably won’t be fired this week but after next weeks game I’m thinking that is his last game in that stupid suit. The guy is a complete retard, there was a good game plan put into place against the eagles offensively but just wasnt executed that great. JTO is an average QB…..you are going to get your TD’s and bright spots but he then does what he did in the 4th Quarter today, fumbles and interceptions. There is a reason he has been with 15 other teams people! Deffensevly the niners were a joke, there coverage schemes were garbage and they were at times dominated by a very average Eagles line. Thats all Nolans doing, he’s the “Deffense genuis”. It’s going to be a long season people, can’t wait for the offseason.

  • joe gomez

    Niner Pundit… Good info. I forgot how much of a moron Donahue was and yes he did gut that team. Dont understand what Bill Walsh seen in that idiot. Steven Jackson and T.J. would of been good on our team.

  • joe gomez

    Ryan.. I dont know about Singletary as HC. How about Defensive Coordinator and we bring in a big name as Head Coach? Marty, Holmgren, Cower, Green, Somebody!

  • crazydave

    i got my 1994-1995 tape of the Dallas playoffs and super bowl against the chargers i think ill watch instead of the new york giants game next week just too keep my sanity…lol

  • joe gomez

    Im gonna watch, I want to see the game that finally gets Nolan fired.

  • Adam49

    I have a problem with the challenges,but i dont have a problem with Nolan.The players are blowing it,not Nolan.You people like to blame the coach for everything.The gameplan was fine.The players didn’t execute again.I say keep Nolan.He’s doing a fine job.The players are dropping the ball.You guys cry and whine about the coach every week.Alot of you are bitching about Marathe being in the booth.Who gives a fuck.It’s our d-line gettin pushed back 5 yards on the run plays.It’s our secondary gettin scorched on the pass play.It’s JTO throwing INT’s and fumbling.Its our o-line thats gettin 5 and 6 false start penalties a game.And you guys wanna cry about a challenge?I dont think so.These players are fucking up,not the coaches.Open your fuckin eyes.Fire nola,fire nolan,fire nolan.For what?Because of a challenge.Nope.The players are prepared for the game just fine.Willis and J.Smith said that all season.The players aren’t gettin it done.

  • joe gomez

    OK I think I finally got it right.. its Damon Bruce still ripping Nolan’s head off on KNBR.

  • Adam49

    Im in Europe on business but i keep some time for myself also.I would like to ask some of these women for some tips on a perfect mustache.I come here frequently but to be honest its not by choice.I prefer to take my vacations in Asia.To me Europe is a toilet.Dont get my wrong there’s some nice places to visit,but in general i see why Europeans are so miserable.I spent most of my time in France and Germany on business,and that’s unfortunate.France is fucken rank.I’ve never liked coming here.Germany is not so bad.I’m spending 4 days in the Ukraine visiting my family.I dont know how they live here,it’s bone chilling cold.

    But back to football.Bottom line is if our players would have did their job,this conversation doesn’t exist.

  • ninerfan4life

    get rid of nolan now!!!! i can’t take it anymore!

  • 9nerfan

    i was at the game and it sucks how so many eagle fans were there. its like a home away from home thing. they go there knowing they gonna beat us. nolan just has to go. no blitzing what so ever. frank gore only had two touches while we were up. something has to be done right now. and those challenges. WHAT THE FUCK. i have never seen a field goal being challenged before.

  • Golden Elbows

    Mann, I think special teams in the punt and kickoff coverage reaaly sucks. We gave them great field position which allowed them to score. Im not blaming the defense for the loss. Sure they could have step up. But they held the eagle to 5 field goals. the offense played well against a diciplined eagles.

  • Golden Elbows

    I still think that Martz should not have called that endaround to Walker. I was thinking run wit Gore. + stats shows that 20+ carries niners are 12-2. Guess what he had 19 carries. So endaround was the wrong call and the following play should have been a sceen or a draw. There was too much time to forch it against a good defense.

  • 4EVERNINER

    The season is lost….ANOTHER top 10 pick n 4 what 2 be coached by knuckleheads….TO THE YORKS SELL THE TEAM TO STEVE YOUNG AND BRENT JONES so we can get back to the top and go hang yourselves at least these two care about winning…like i said before GIVE VERNON THE FUCKIN BALL do all you guys see now what i’m talking about….no hope against the giants though

  • http://49ersfanboy.wordpress.com Indiana Jim

    There are two things that are useless:

    1) Keeping Mike Nolan as the Head Coach

    2) Arguing with Adam49 about it.

    Nolan's failures and ineptitudes are well-chronicled and they are myriad. His defensive philosophy has lost more games than it has won, and oh by the way, I believe I said from the beginning that J.T. O'Sullivan is "not good." Has he disproven that yet?

  • 49er4life

    This loss wasn't Nolan's fault. It was the referees calling a field goal good that wasn't good. Mike Martz also called a dumb ass play in running the reverse to Delanie Walker agaisnt the league's 6th ranked defense. And lastly, JTO fucking sucks. There's a reason he was cut by 6 teams or whatever the number is. We should have drafted a QB. We have 3 more NFC East oppenents left. We should lose all of those games. We're in for a long season fellas.

  • Golden Elbows

    Let get the record straight. Matt Ryan and JTO runs to different offenses. Martz offense is more complicated. JTO is doing a great job. We cant allow the other teams to score. Defense wins….enough said

  • gee-ray

    should have keep working the screen pass and tight end throws in the fourth to set up the run w/gore. once again the o-line allowed pressure on jto. u cant blame him for the fumble. one pick was his fault the other was a wrong route by bruce. martz did a great job getting the ball to vd. OH and I was positive that field goal was wide right. even with the replays the best angle it looked wide. i understand if it wasnt enough to over turn but the announcers kept saying it was without a doubt good. looked different to me. even though it wasnt supposed to be reviewed. i dont knock nolan for that one.

  • joe gomez

    Medford.. READ MY POSTS AGAIN.. i cant stand Nolan. I want his ass fired now!

  • joe gomez

    gee-ray.. yea i thought the ball might of been wide right but you had the 2 refs standing right underneath. the reason why i think Nolan is an idiot is Desean Jackson’s catch was a fucking no brainer, the kid caught it, everyone saw it. the guy that dropped the ball when he went down, everyone saw that too. also, his explanation about the field goal challenge was he wanted to get an “interpretation” on the play. what the fuck? then he said can i take the challenge back. the ref said no idiot you already threw the fucking red flag, you cant take it back. what a fucking moron.

  • West

    Pundit, has there been any real discussion of Singletary taking over for Nolan this year? Something needs to be done.

  • gee-ray

    i agree with alot of things said in this column but i dont agree jto sucks.

  • Niner Pundit

    West…only rumors I have heard is that IF Nolan is fired before the end of the season. Manusky might be most likely to take over.

  • Lowrance

    Stupid Cowboys….

    If they could have won, I could still hold out thinking we could take the NFC West with 5 wins, LOL.

  • West

    Manusky??? Why

  • joe gomez

    Ninaz.. did you watch Arnaz in the Patriots game where he dropped 2 CRUCIAL first down catches? Im sick of this QB turned WR project with average speed. The only reason we signed Rossum is because we needed a returner! Jackson has 2 returns for a TD right now so im sure he would done well in red and gold. He also has better hands than Arnaz hands down. He can stretch the field and will “fly by” any CB. Something Arnaz also cant do. So you still think he wasnt a good pick late in the 2nd round? hahahaha.. i bet your cheering for Richal whos sitting his ass on the fucking bench right now or better yet our 1st rounder Balmer who gets pushed back like a little bitch every down. Get real dude.. Jackson was the ONLY pick late in the 2nd.

  • joe gomez

    Manusky? hahah.. thats a fucking joke. Thats not upgrading at all. I say let Singletary be interim for this season and we sign a big name for next year. Holmgren, Cower, Green, Marty, hell sign Jimmy J. We need a PROVEN coach who has done something. Also, get rid of Scot when that proven coach steps in. Look what Parcells has done with Miami. Scot isnt really proven. Hes just as lost as Nolan.

  • The fan

    Just face it the man sucks it’s time to get a coach who
    know what he’s doing out there.
