Seems like Tomasula, Rathman and few other may be safe, but like I've said before, when a team vastly underperforms, nobody is irreplaceable. It's easy to find s**tty coaches to ruin your season! I'm glad to see the shake up! This team should have won at least 10 games last season, maybe more, the schedule was easy, the team is talented. The coaches failed, no like all failures they should be fired!
If we had a good coach that could call plays, we most likely win 5 more games, finish 11-5, win the West, and would still possibly be playing right now.
I agree, but I also believe losing those games have helped us in the long term. We would never reach SB status with the old coaching staff. With the new one, at least the niners are returning to their classic identity.
This has entered my mind quite a few times since Harbaugh's hire. It is like we had to go through hell (Erickson, Donahue, Nolan, McCloughan and Singletary) to get to heaven (Harbaugh and Baalke). Without those hellish series of event since 2002, we probably would not be in position to get Harbaugh.
