I think that what we need to do is come up with a way to properly and respectively honor coach Nolan. Now, Nolan was before my time on here, but I suspect that there are more former Nolan fans around here than just the 1 poster that I know of. Nolan is the reason for our season. He brought Sing here, gave birth to Scot and guided him from head scout to "trigger man", brought just about all of our players in here, and almost, without a doubt, in my humble and normally highly accurate opinion, counseled and mentored a young and impressionable Jed. Nolan was the organization. He is still the organization in may ways. So I say, if you supported coach Nolan, or if you support coach Sing right now, or if you think Scot has some usefulness to this organization, you have an obligation to say thank you to coach Nolan. Do not disrespect him, do not make fun of him, instead, acknowledge what he has done for you. It's the least that should be done.

Nolan is a big reason why we have some of the players that we do. He is also a big reason why we have failed so far as well.

Quite a lot of people here thought (including me) that he was a decent GM but subpar coach.

Either way, he has left a big influence on the organization.

Although you omitted the admission that you were once fiercely loyal to Nolan as a coach, I do appreciate you acknowledging Nolan's influence on both this organization and its fans. It is somewhat refreshing to finally have a fan say, "Hey, he was kinda my guy."

I liked him at first until I realized what a horrible NFL HC he was....

I would like to take this opportunity to remind the Zone what a pile of s**t Terry Donahue left for him. We didn't have an NFL roster and 1 or 2 drafts, a hand full of FA and all the coaching in the world wasn't going to hide the fact that we didn't have 22 starting NFL caliber players until late last year. fortunately for us, most are returning this year.

Honestly, I think Norv Turner is more responsible for stunting our growth than Nolan. We were moving forward, taking baby steps and about to build on the previous year and then he pulled the rug out from under us. That set us back so far and we werent strong enough to absord the blow and rebound.

Terry Donahue and Norv Turner- ass holes

f**k Norv!! He was a key reason we had took 2 steps back on offense and our offense was pretty damn bad even before we took the 2 steps back. It went from bad to record breaking bad.
thanks!

With high draft picks and an open check book, I think Nolan underperformed. He should have been fired a year earlier. The way he brow beat Alex into playing with a career threatening injury was criminal. His meddling with his coordinators and lack of expertise in game day decisions make him the worse Niner coach ever.
Ill say Hill starts & plays the first 2 series, Smith plays the rest of first half & starts game 2.

Play1: Hill hand off to Gore right side for a gain of 8
Play2: Hill hand off to Gore Left side for a gain of 5 / FIRST DOWN
Play3: Hill 3 step drop pass to Vernon Davis in the flat for a gain of 9
Play4: Fullback dive to Moran Norris for gain of 2 / First down
Play5: Hill 5 step deep in route to Josh Morgan gain of 14
Play6: Hill hand off to Gore left side gain of 4
Play7: INC to Josh Morgan
Play8: Hill 3 step drop complete to Isaac Bruce out route gain of 8
Play9: Playaction Hill to Davis 21yd TD

A little something I just read; "Singletary said that Nolan inherited easily the worst situation in the NFL when he arrived in 2005."

and he aint kiddin

I just want to say you nailed the good and the bad with very few words. While I was very happy to see Nolan exit for being a subpar coach he did have something to do with bringing in players who have helped this team. I think Singletary has commented on Nolan's tireless work ethic and his efforts to improve the team and his continuing friendship with Nolan.

P.S. If the Fans do boo Nolan ------ I won't be one of them.

Singletary says don't expect to see a lot of Gore in the pre-season games ------ were gonna keep him healthy and take a good look at the others.

It's probably a good idea too.

I want to see Sheets and Coffee more anyway.

I think it will be the play that Vernon scored his first TD on. It was in Arizona, for those who don't remember. Fake a block and fall down, get up and scramble across the middle, receive the pass on the far side of the field and take it to the goal.

Did you know that was his first catch in the NFL.....35 yard TD, the play was executed nicely.

That was a nice play. 37 yard TD pass Smith to Davis. I saw that and thought that was the first of many.
wonder how many people will complain about the offensive play calling without realizing its a preseason game and they won't using every play they have
1st play: Screen pass to Forte for 8 yards, tackled by Clements.
2nd play: Hand off to Forte for a loss of 3, tackled by T. Spikes.
3rd play: Orton drops back, throws for Hester ball is knocked down at the line by Lawson.
Punt~
