I actually like this move a lot for the Niners. The team is headed in the right direction. Hopefully they can do something next season or maybe the Arizona Cardinals, just so we don't have to see the Seattle Frauds in the playoffs anymore.




SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Mike Martz claims he can put together a fantastic offense with mostly the same San Francisco 49ers (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/sfo/;_ylt=Ah8uJt5IwCAr8Y4r0DR.q9odsLYF) who made up the NFL's worst unit in 2007.

It's just the type of brash confidence everybody expects from Martz -- and Mike Nolan believes every word of it.
Nolan hired Martz to be his offensive coordinator Tuesday, tasking one of the NFL's most polarizing coaches with reinventing an offense that sank to historic lows last season.
Martz has been on a rocky coaching road for the past three years, but he tormented the 49ers for six years during his greatest successes with their NFC West rival St. Louis Rams (http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/teams/stl/;_ylt=AuYcH78JFCzHin7UbgZ_9hYdsLYF). Martz built the so-called Greatest Show on Turf over seven seasons, honing a remarkable passing game while the Rams reached two Super Bowls.

Totally agree with this, but I think it will make them more of a contender than what they were.

F* Martz and F* SF. He is a great offensive mind but there is a big difference between the offensive talent that he had in St. Louis compared to what he has in SF. Seattle is slightly overrated because of their division but they aren't as bad as you claim. Did they cost you a lot of $$ or something??

My only problem with Martz to the 49ers is he's a pass happy nutcake and now he's the OC with a QB that cant pass the damn ball.

Frank Gore keeper owners must be pretty sour with this news.

No Doc, Seattle siphoned the rent money from me last weekend..

I agree that the offenses are pretty different, comparing St. Louis and San Francisco.

I think he has a comparible running game in Gore as he had with Faulk.
I think his tight end is upgraded over what he had in St. Louis.
His receivers are in question. I think the Niners can begin to fix this with the upcoming draft this year.The Seahawks, in any other division, wouldn't have sniffed playoffs. As far as them losing me money, when I bet them...they actually hit for me.

Not sure how much he will use the TE but we are also missing the OL and QB positions. The Rams were stacked all around. The Niners have a good RB and TE. Big difference.

Why so?? RB's under Martz have had some great seasons.

The Lions or 49ers cant be compared with the talent level that Martz had with the Rams and Marshall Faulk.

Look at Martz' last 2 seasons in Detroit as a better barometer.

2006 - 596 pass attempts - 304 rush attempts
2007 - 588 pass attempts - 324 rush attempts

Thats a 2/1 ratio passing to rushing. Not what I'd like to see as a Gore owner, thats all.

His stubborness to stick with the pass is why he got canned in Detroit.

Doctego
01-09-2008, 09:04 PM
I would be anxious to see what the breakdown was when he was in St. Louis because many of those pass attempts went to Faulk. This could be a very good thing for Gore, especially in PPR leagues.

Look at his running backs in Detroit though. A banged up hurt overrated Kevin Jones. TJ Duckett. Taint Bell. I wouldn't run with that if I had Roy Williams and Calvin Johnson.

I just checked and you are correct Doc. Over a 4 year 99-02 span, Marshall Faulk caught 80+ balls each of those years and averaged roughly 250 carries in that time.

But the 49ers aren't exactly the greatest show on turf. Gore is no Faulk and Alex Smith is not to be mistaken with Kurt Warner circa 200. Holt and Bruce in their prime vs Darrell Jackson and Arnez Battle in 08?

Alex Smith is not a bad QB. I wouldn't necessarily give him a top grade, but he can be coached. I do agree that the OL is missing. Give Smith a stronger OL, and a receiver (or two) and that offense can be productive.

I am not saying an overnight fix. I am saying Martz is better than what they had.

Alex Smith's problem is that he's not a 5 or 7 step, drop back passer. And they tried to make him do that too much. If Martz can either get him rolling out more, or doing more 3-step drop then I think that'll help him a lot.

If anything I think this helps Gore because of the way Faulk was used. And white Martz may have never used the TE much, they can line up Vernon Davis in the slot and use him there (like Antonio Gates), which I think would help Alex Smith a lot if he can get some quick drops and crossing routes

first of almost anyone is a upgrade over jim hostler. alex smith has been in the league 3 years and in that time he has had to learn 3 different systems. last year he was terrible but that wasnt his fault. the playcalling was terrible, the line was terrible. things finally got better when tollner was hired so he could help hostler cause everyone saw he didnt know what he was doing. martz isnt going to leave gore out of the playbook his number will be called plenty and it could be even better for him since he can catch out of the backfield very well.

as for vernon davis i use to have high hopes for him until i found out the truth. yeah he is in great shape and a amazing athlete, probably one of the best conditioned TE's in the league if not the best! but he isnt that smart, he will never be a threat from the slot etc you know why cause he cant remember routes or plays, he just doesnt. the niners have had to simplify the playbook in some areas to help him out. it sucks cause he could be a beast in the league if this wasnt a problem.

San Francisco 49ers second-year running back Thomas Clayton, who spent the 2007 season on the team's practice squad, has reportedly impressed the coaching staff through Organized Team Activities (OTAs) and the team's mandatory mini-camp with his quickness.

Are we sniffing sleeper here???

No third wide-out in San Fran???


Mike Martz-led offenses typically have featured a slot receiver who was heavily targeted. Names like Shaun McDonald (http://www.footballguys.com/McDoSh00-1.php), Kevin Curtis (http://www.footballguys.com/CurtKe00-1.php) and Tony Horne have filled that role in the past. The decision on who will fill that role, and whether they will see significant targets is a burning question around the team. Early indications are that the slot WR will not see a big role. Martz has a different philosophy than the one he had in St. Louis and Detroit. In St. Louis and Detroit, Martz had an abundance of big-name receivers. In San Francisco, his arsenal is more varied. For the first time, he has two decent tight ends in Vernon Davis (http://www.footballguys.com/DaviVe00-1.php) and Delanie Walker (http://www.footballguys.com/WalkHu00-1.php), and to hear Martz talk, those two will be on the field together quite a bit. Barrows speculates that Arnaz Battle (http://www.footballguys.com/BattAr00-1.php) is the ideal guy to man the slot. The question is that if Davis, Walker, Robinson and Deshaun Foster end up catching a lot of passes in Martz's offenses, will there be a great need for a third and fourth wideout at all?

Interesting thought... But it actually kinda makes sense.

Nothing of importance fantasy-wise for this season, but a little something for 49ers fans.


The San Francisco 49ers figure to have nine draft picks next season, including two compensatory picks based on net free-agent losses this offseason. The formula the NFL uses to determine compensatory picks is kept as secret as the Colonel's special recipe, but it appears to be based on salary, playing time and postseason honors. Salary is the biggest factor in the equation with adjustments made for playing time and awards. Compensatory picks are awarded to teams, beginning at the end of the third round. The 49ers' two projected comp picks could be at the end of the fifth and sixth rounds.

While speaking to the press today, new San Francisco 49ers OC Mike Martz indicated he planned to use TE Vernon Davis (http://www.footballguys.com/DaviVe00-1.php) like a WR. "Well, 52 (catches) is pretty good production. That's really good for the tight end position. What we'll try to do with him is try to take advantage of his speed more, probably, than what they've done in the past. We'll try to get him down the field, more or less like a wide receiver -- move him out, move him around. At first it was so different for him, but he's really adapted well to it. He's really kind of thrived with it."

This is interesting... Seems like Davis gets overvalued every year, will this news continue that trend, or work out in all Davis owners favor?

The San Francisco 49ers' quarterback battle is still undecided as all three of the team's quarterbacks struggled in their loss Friday night to the Oakland Raiders. QB J.T. O'Sullivan committed two turnovers on the team's last two possessions and QB Shaun Hill (http://www.footballguys.com/HillSh00-1.php) added an interception earlier in the game. Alex Smith (http://www.footballguys.com/SmitAl03-1.php) finished 5-9 passing for 51 yards. The 49ers turned the ball over four times as a team.

Could it be an even worse QB situation than Chicago???? F*ck Rex Grossman. Kyle Orton though...

King_Killah
08-18-2008, 06:33 PM
O'boy.... O'Sullivan...


Adam Schefter reports that while the 49ers hoped Alex Smith (http://www.footballguys.com/SmitAl03-1.php) would win the job, through the first part of camp, the San Francisco QB that's most distinguished himself is J.T. O'Sullivan. O'Sullivan was with Mike Martz last year in Detroit. So far, he's making the most of it and is beating out Alex Smith (http://www.footballguys.com/SmitAl03-1.php) and Shaun Hill (http://www.footballguys.com/HillSh00-1.php). The 49ers aren't ready to annoint O'Sullivan the starter, but Schefter says it's heading that way.

Points to O'Sullivan for refusing to go away and making this a 3-QB race in SF. Now it looks as if he may win the spot. Good for him. Just don't think too many people will be drafting him or the other two clowns in SF under center.

08-18-2008, 06:37 PM
San Francisco 49ers HC Mike Nolan says that rookie WR Josh Morgan (http://www.footballguys.com/MorgJo00-1.php) is now challenging to win a starting WR spot with veteran Bryant Johnson (http://www.footballguys.com/JohnBr02-1.php) battling a hamstring injury. Morgan, who has been very impressive in training camp thus far, was first thought of as a long shot to even make the team.

I would dub Morgan a late round sleeper, but with the QB mess in SF, not too sure about it yet. Stay tuned.

08-19-2008, 12:42 PM
That O'Sullivan to Morgan connection - the next Montana to Rice???? Get the f*ck out of here... :lol:


J.T. O'Sullivan threw San Francisco's first scoring pass of the preseason and led the 49ers on back-to-back touchdown drives. Whether that was enough to help him complete his long-shot bid to become the Niners starting quarterback remains to be seen. O'Sullivan threw a 59-yard touchdown pass to Josh Morgan (http://www.footballguys.com/MorgJo00-1.php) which looked like Joe Montana to Jerry Rice, and outplayed top competitor Alex Smith (http://www.footballguys.com/SmitAl03-1.php) as the 49ers beat Aaron Rodgers (http://www.footballguys.com/RodgAa00-1.php) and the Green Bay Packers 34-6 Saturday night.

49ers QB J.T. O'Sullivan was outstanding in Thursday night's game. He completed 7 of 8 passes for 126 yards and 1 TD with no interceptions.

Well.... 7 of 8 for 126 and a touch is good and all....but outstanding seems to be a little bit of an overuse of the word.

Alex Smith got the nod in the 2nd quarter and played OK. No official word who the starter will be but everything is pointing to O'Sullivan.

I am really surprised that you can't believe this team has only 2 wins. I mean seriously. Arizona, @ Saints, Patriots, Eagles, @ Giants... You really, honestly expected wins out of any of those games? Here is what I see for the remainder of their schedule: vs. Seattle (should win); bye week; @ Arizona (AZ here - although a season split is not out of the question); vs. St. Louis (depends on what StL teams shows up); @ Dallas (nope, Dallas will have more than turned it back around by the time this game comes up); @ Buffalo (sorry); vs. Jets (I call it a win); @ Miami (loss); @ St. Louis (likely lose this one); vs. Washington (could play spoilers). They are heading in the right direction. Just not there yet. Its like the Jets. There is plenty of positives, but still the negatives outweight he positives. I do believe that the Jets and the 49ers are steps and seasons ahead of the Raiders. And I know that dawinna will hop in here an accuse me of just bashing teams, which is far from the case. Just laying it out there as I see it. I also saw that the 49ers expect to fire Nolan after next week's game. This is pure and plain just stupid. You think the team is going to come out and play for him, or even he'll come out and coach knowing that he is canned after the game? That is so dumb. It was said with the exception of an unforseen change, which leaves it open to him not being tossed. I don't think Singletary would be a good HC in this spot. Maybe one day, not now, not there. Martz over Nolan huh? Interesting.

Interesting.i said i cant believe they only have 2 wins WITH all the positive things i have seen so far. coming into they year i didnt expect much. the tough 4 game stretch everyone including me was really only hoping for 1 win and 1 win only. the saints manhandled us, but im saying i cant believe the 2 wins is they were so close against the patriots, EAGLES and were very much in the game against the giants and then just threw it away. patriots and giants games were very winable and them losing to the eagles when they had the game was just pathetic. the 4th quarter has been complete hell especially for jto. i was a jto supporter but its like hes getting worse. they need to atleast give shaun hill a chance imo but martz really really doesnt like hill. i understand the o-line is terrible but even when he gets decent protection hes rushing the play and inside the redzone he has had game killing interceptions not 1 not 2 about about 4 or 5 of them and yes i would def rather have martz over nolan easily but its singletary's job for right now and i dont mind that at all nolan had his chances.

Yeah. This makes better sense. You can't come out and say you are going to fire the guy but at a future date. That was ridiculous. Good luck with Singletary. I hope they give him a chance and is not a forced thing like Al Davis did with Kiffin in Oakland.

I can't believe the 49ers actually lost that Eagles game. They owned the game until the Eagles defense stood up and refused to lose.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary said rookie RB Glen Coffee (http://www.footballguys.com/CoffGl00-1.php) is a downhill runner and finishes every run. 'He has a motor and we're excited about that,' Singletary said. Singletary said the team views Coffee as the back to tag-team to starting RB Frank Gore (http://www.footballguys.com/GoreFr00-1.php).

With most teams adopting the two back rotation, this is something to pay a little attention to. Right now, I am not expecting much from Coffee, but we'll see how camps and such go.

ESPN.com reports Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach (http://www.footballguys.com/LeacMi00-1.php) said Cleveland Browns head coach Eric Mangini is to blame for San Francisco 49ers WR Michael Crabtree (http://www.footballguys.com/CrabMi00-1.php) slipping in the first round of the NFL Draft. Reports out of Cleveland said that the Browns didn't like Crabtree's attitude when he visited the team prior to the NFL Draft. 'Michael Crabtree (http://www.footballguys.com/CrabMi00-1.php) has been more successful as a receiver than that guy as a coach at this point,' Leach said of Mangini, according to media reports of a conference call. 'Part of the reason is (Crabtree's) too shy to be like that.'

This is easier to say that actually do. If they can provide protection, then I don't see why Davis can't be used more as a receiver, but Davis is a good blocker, so if the line isn't getting it done we will see Vern blocking more than receiving. I still have him as a mid-tier TE at this point.

Darren Sabedra, of the San Jose Mercury News, reports San Francisco 49ers QB Shaun Hill (http://www.footballguys.com/HillSh00-1.php), who is 7-3 as a starter, feels he can lead the team to wins this season. 'I feel like I've proven that I can win,' Hill said, 'and that I can win with this team. Obviously, winning is the most important thing.'

Hill had an uncharacteristically good day at practice after the 49ers GM praised Alex Smith. He's proven everything he can on the field, but it still feels like it will be an uphill battle for him to win the starting job with Smith saying all the right things and flashing the arm strength and talent that got him drafted first overall. The best strategy might be to pass on Hill until the job is settled, but be ready to pounce on him on the waiver wire if Smith wins the job, because Smith has never looked as good as Hill when the bullets are flying.

Next to no carries a game for Coffee.. Say he plays all 16... 96 for the season. This should have him over the 200 yards that I'd be surprised at, but still. As a Gore owner, I would also be slightly concerned with the small number of touches he sees...BUT even though is roughly 40 less than his 2006 season, it is more than what he had last year.

I imagine he has had it his whole hold out, so he should know it. I've never bought into the chemistry with the QB crap. Run the correct route, get open, and the QB will hit you with the ball. He will be the #1 WR on a run first team, that doesn't stretch the field much. Take it for what its worth, I think he has a nice impact on that team.

It really has nothing to do with the playbook. Can you run the route tree? You have to hope he worked on that in the down time, because he sure as hell never ran the full route tree at Texas Tech. As far as talent, he has it, that is why he was one of the top 5 players on the board. Give him a few weeks to get in shape and learn at full speed. He will need the time to acclimate to NFL style play, it is about polar opposite to what he played in college.

Just getting a chance to sit back and better myself as a person, as a player, as a teammate. … I feel like going through that it made me look at the world in a different way, look at my teammates a different way.

It's been 10 months since he's played meaningful football. That's nearly a year. I'd bet against him being a consistent producer till atleast the end of the season. He's had no time to learn the playbook, he's probably not in game-day shape, has no work with Shaun Hill. Not saying he couldn't break a big play here or there, but to expect him to be a steady 6 recption/60+ yards a game reciever this year sounds crazy imo.

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Controversy-already-with-Crabtree.html


On Thursday, 49ers offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye dropped a bomb of sorts on the hopes of San Francisco fans when he told reporters that Michael Crabtree ran just two routes in college (http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/49ers-coordinator-Crabtree-ran-two-routes-in-college.html) at Texas Tech. Two routes? That’s right, the hitch (or the stop route) and the 9-route (or the fly route). Not what you’d expect to see from a top-10 pick, and not what you’d expect to see from a rookie who just ended a holdout that drew national attention for its length and drama.
But even with that, we shouldn’t be surprised about Raye’s comments for a couple of reasons, because as I’ve said since April and the NFL Draft, we usually don’t see much from high-profile rookie wideouts. For starters, Crabtree was just that much better than the competition in the Big 12. There wasn’t a defensive back in the conference who could match up to his athleticism on the field, and it’s a major contributor to the idea that he ran only two routes in college. Corners usually played off-man coverage against Crabtree — with big cushions — afraid to give up the big play. In return, Crabtree could press hard off the line of scrimmage with a vertical release, watch the corner backpedal out of his stance — almost in a panic — and sit down. A five-yard route that now turns into a one-on-one matchup with ample space for Crabtree to work with in the open field. One missed tackle, and that five-yard route turns into a 20-, 30-yard gain — because he was that good in college. And when teams actually did press him — usually with safety help over the top — it became a race for Crabtree to beat the jam at the line and get the football before the safety could get from his middle of the field or Cover 2 landmark. Easy. Very easy at that level for a player of Crabtree’s caliber. But as Raye said, the learning curve ahead of the rookie is big — very big — because he has no idea what kind of competition he’s going to face on Sundays.
Scouts are down on the Big 12 for a reason. Everyone runs the spread, and the defenses in that conference aren’t exactly top of the line. It’s usually an easy pitch and catch for the offense, and the speed on defense isn’t up to par with the speed of a player like Crabtree. Talking to scouts, they have a hard time evaluating offensive talent in the Big 12 because defenses allow them to make plays, and Crabtree took full advantage of that. However, this doesn’t hide that fact that Crabtree will be trying to evolve into a pro receiver — along with learning actual pro routes — on the fly. By prolonging his holdout, he has missed the train when it comes to development, missed the one-on-ones in camp against Nate Clements and missed the preseason, which would have improved his understanding of pro offenses and defenses immensely.
Now that process will have to work itself into the normal routine of game plans and film study for the Niners. Can Crabtree do it? Can the rookie develop midseason in the NFL knowing only two basic routes that we see every Friday night at the high school level?
That answer will have to wait, just as Raye and the Niners wait to see what they really have.

He has speed, hands...can shed tackles. 3100 yards and 40+ TDs isn't too shabby for only two years of college ball. If SF can get a QB a couple of notches better than Shaun Hill or Alex Smith, they could become the class of that division.

Seriously, most QBs dream of walking into a game down 21 points with the freedom to lob it downfield every single play. Yes he played well and yes that was their best 30 minutes of passing all season but lets see him control a full game and then make judgements - Anyone with the skill to make it into the NFL should have the skill to get in the zone and make big plays, espicially when you're down by 21 and a defense clearly isn't giving it their best effort.

Alex Smith got thrown in as the starting QB on a heavily rebuilding team that sometimes couldnt protect him at all, and kept having to learn new systems every single year he has been a Niner. While Rodgers was on a decent team and got to sit back and learn for a few years from a future hall of famer in Favre.

Glenn Coffe retires.



49ers backup RB Glen Coffee shockingly announced his retirement from football Friday.
Coffee was nowhere to be found Friday after missing Thursday afternoon's practice. He released a statement Friday afternoon, indicating that he's "moving on" from football. Coach Mike Singletary runs a notoriously tough camp, but there has to be more to the story here. Coffee was thought to be battling rookie Anthony Dixon for the No. 2 job behind Frank Gore, though Singletary says Dixon is still "a ways away." Michael Robinson could enter the season as the primary backup instead.
Source: Matt Barrows on Twitter (http://twitter.com/mattbarrows/statuses/21084833666)




Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald, who covered Glen Coffee at Alabama, believes Coffee is retiring to pursue the priesthood.
"Having covered 49ers RB Glen Coffee for 3 years, not surprised he retired," tweeted Rapoport on Friday. "He has a higher call. Wouldn't shock me if he headed to ministry." The 49ers retain Coffee's rights, but it sounds like his retirement is for good. He'll remain under contract through 2012.

Smith looked awful in portions of that game. I lost count of the number of times I yelled "Throw the FUCKING BALL"

The play where he didn't throw the easy pass to Davis on the curl and ended up getting chased out and sacked almost had me turn the game off. SF is looking like it's still a few years away from being a contender. That Dline got man handled in the run game, and the 2ndary got torched for big plays. The Oline def has some growing to do, but I think they have the potential to turn out good. Alex Smith is way all over the map in terms of consistency.

Singletary fired. No one should be surprised.Nope, but I sure going to miss the weekly interviews. That man is either dumb as a rock or has absolutely no social skills. Maybe a mix of the two.

He certainly has a lot to learn about leading a team but I fault the team big time as well. I don't see how you can have a rookie coach with no GM, no mentor, and no experienced sidekick.

A rookie coach with not even any coordinating experience, as well. I agree with what you said.

Adam Scheffter is tweeting that Jim Harbaugh will coach the 49ers.


That is a potentially good job. They are a QB away from being a good team.

Yeah I heard about this earlier this morning... all the word was Luck decided to go back for another year so people were assuming Harbaugh was staying. I like this move. I think they are more than a QB away. Word is right now that they are looking at McNabb and also tossing around the idea of grabbing Blaine Gabbert of Missou with their first rounder. If they get him, I think he is NFL ready right now and would easily win the starting job right away.

Jake Locker is a better fit for Harbaugh's WCO style offense, not sure of his value though. All kinds of speculation that they will try to acquire Kolb or Flynn in a trade.

any chance the Niners end up with Luck in the future ? I could see them trading up or doing whatever possible... or am I just playing make believe here?

I am reading that san fran are now at the forefront to go after mcnabb. San fran won't give up what philly wants for kolb. I am also seeing that locker is on the radar of san fran. Locker should be a first rounder but likey a second or third at this point.

Yeah I agree and actually I think he's a much better prospect than some think. Some think he's just a run around QB, he's a big dude, strong arm, quick release... the athletic ability is just a huge plus.

Just thought Harbaugh would like a Stanzi, or something.

They might have this division won already.
