I actually think there's an outside chance they're going to fire him. Threatening team mates? Attacking team mates? If the team really wants to continue to be seen as "winning with class," I'm really wondering how this fits with that image.
I think he's real good on the field so I'd be worried if they did, but I think there's a chance.
The winning with class
idea is interesting, but I am not absolutely clear how it would play out.
The seriousness of what Brooks did can not be,and should not be, denied or ignored.
In the three years, Brooks has been with the 49ers, he has demonstrated a willingness to improve both on and off the field.
I do not think that this incident necessarily invalidates his efforts over the last three years.
This is, as far as we know, the first time Brooks has blown it with the 49ers.
There are many elements to consider, and I do not have the knowledge or information needed.
We will have to see what happens.
