How exactly did they "downgrade" when they had the #1 offense in the NFL with Trestman calling the plays.
It's not Trestman's fault that Policy couldn't get Ricky Watters re-signed. That single loss was enough to kill the 49ers Superbowl chances as they were left with Derek "3.1 yards and a cloud of dust" Loville as their solution at RB.
In one season, 49ers went from Ricky Watters(FA) and Bar None Floyd(injury) to Derek Loville and Adam Walker....that's one hell of a downgrade.
With Trestman calling the plays, Jerry Rice ended up having his all-time best season, setting the NFL record for receiving yards.
