Offensive coordinator Mike Martz met with the media today in Santa Clara. He talks to the media every-other week.
Thanks for participating in the Q&A. The session has expired. I know it was a little (OK, a LOT) difficult to follow the progression of the questions and my responses.

Before I get to bed, I just wanted to give you some of my thoughts on what happened today.
The 49ers have announced that Mike Nolan has been fired, and Mike Singletary has signed a deal through the end of the season to become the interim coach.
So did anything happen while I was traveling back from the East Coast?
When looking at the schedule prior to the season, it was easy to predict a four-game losing streak at this point. After all, the 49ers stood little chance at Saints, home against the Patriots and Eagles, and then back on the road against the Giants. Right?
Check here early and often for a live blog from today’s 49ers-Giants game in East Rutherford, N.J. The Internet connection has not been good, so I’m not sure how much I’ll be able to blog today.
