Him and Vic Fangio are both scrubs...

I love the Jim Harbaugh hire but his defensive staff is growing into a group of failures.

Before we've played one game.

Looking at the history and reading about both of these guys, yes before we have played a game. We let a defensive cord go that kept our team in the top half of the league with the worst offense ever on a 49ers roster. We hired Fangio who has ruined 3 defenses in the NFL, all of them being in the bottom 5 before getting fired all three times. Jim Leavitt is not as bad, his only real downside is he punched a player.. I can understand emotion getting the best of a two men and fist flying. I just used this chance to vent about Fangio, who will ruin our defense and have us in the bottom of the league 2 yeras from now.

I wanted to keep manusky as well, but I'm not going to call Fangio a failure before we played any games.

One good argument against Fangio's track record is the guy was DC for two expansion franchises. Those teams were building from scratch.

exactly, how can you expect top 5 defenses with expansion teams and crappy players

So what positions are left?

QB coach, TE coach, Passrushing coach,

"pass-rush specialist" and "Inside LB coach" were positions Singletary made up so he could hire his friend and nephew to the staff. they were just un-needed guys taking money from the payroll.

Im kind of disappointed to see Jason Tarver go after being on the coaching staff for 10 years now. our LB have always been good.

With Chryst on board he can coach both TE and QB's.. I hear he'll be the QB coach- so maybe Pete Hoerner stays ??

Hoener - sorry but he needs to go to IMHO.
I sort of like a fire-breather as a linebackers coach.

why do zoners think he's a good coach? because he's fierce and hit a player in the throat??

just curious..
He wasnt gonna pass up the chance to coach Willis,Spikes, and Bowman. I like the addition.

Trust me, if I am wrong about Fangio I will gladly admit it in great joy.

I don't expect it to be obvious right away.

I really meant that it will be fun to discuss. The difference in our defense and the way that Manusky runs the defense in San Diego. Just honestly good discussion. I'm not interested in proving who is right or wrong.

You have a good reason to worry. I feel that I have a good reason to be excited.

It's going to be interesting, no matter what the outcome.

He took a football program that literally did not exist and turned it into a very competitive DI program within four seasons.

Also had them ranked #2 in BCS rankings at one point.
