Report: 49ers name Eric Mangini defensive coordinator

My goodness. What a downgrade from Vic Fangio and Ed Donatell. Mangini was a defensive coordinator for one season nine years ago. That year (2005), the Patriots’ defense ranked 26th in yards allowed and 17th in points allowed. In 2004, the year before Mangini, the Patriots’ defense ranked 9th in yards allowed and 2nd in […]

Patriots’ tactics deflate the game’s integrity

This is my Thursday column. I don’t trust Bill Belichick or Tom Brady. But, I don’t want to rush to judgment. Maybe Belichick and Brady didn’t defile the integrity of the league this past Sunday. Maybe someone else or something else deflated the Patriots’ footballs before or during the AFC championship game. We don’t yet […]

49ers see runs of success in their quarterback’s future

This is my Sunday column. Keep running him until he breaks down. That is the 49ers’ plan for Colin Kaepernick next season. I can’t prove it beyond a reasonable doubt, ladies and gentlemen of the jury, but I can make a case. Exhibit A: Mike Shanahan and Rob Chudzinski – the top candidates to become […]

Baalke: “I think somewhere in there (Tomsula) said we’re going to run the football.”

SANTA CLARA — This is the transcript of Jim Tomsula’s introductory press conference, courtesy of the 49ers’ p.r. department. CEO Jed York opening comments: “Good afternoon. We are here to introduce the new head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, Jim Tomsula. It’s been a long process, a detail-oriented process. [49ers general manager] Trent Baalke […]

Meet Jim unHarbaugh

Jed York hardly took his eyes off of Jim Tomsula during his introductory press conference Thursday afternoon. York was captivated, in awe, bursting with pride. There is something almost mystical about Tomsula. He is a father figure. He is personal. He speaks from the heart. He talks about the need for good human relationships. He […]

49ers raise the bar

According to reports, the 49ers have fired Vic Fangio. Fangio, 56, is the best defensive coordinator in the NFL. But the best isn’t good enough for the 49ers. The 49ers have high standards.

This is just another dumbass move by Jed York and company, who is better than Vic Fangio out there?... - dc9er

York: “Jim is a great teacher and a tremendous mentor who conducts himself with great class and integrity.”

The 49ers just officially named Jim Tomsula the head coach.

49ers and Adam Gase — good match or bad idea?

This is about gravitas and Adam Gase. Gase is the favorite to be the next head coach of the 49ers. Gase is the only coach the 49ers have interviewed twice so far this offseason — they interviewed him for a second time Tuesday, according to reports. Gase is 36 years old. He looks like a […]

Will Mike Solari join Greg Roman in Buffalo?

Matt Barrows recently tweeted that the Buffalo Bills are interested in 49ers’ offensive line coach Mike Solari. I get it why — the Bills just hired Greg Roman to be their offensive coordinator, and Solari knows Roman’s offense. No one can teach Roman’s system to the Bills’ offensive linemen better than Solari, who happens to […]

This is my Friday column. Let’s play a game. Based on what we know about Jed York and Trent Baalke, which isn’t much, and what we know about their head-coaching search, which is even less, predict which coach they will hire. Easy, right? I think I know the answer, based on next to nothing. And […]
