Eric Mangini is in talks with the 49ers (consultant job) *EDIT - HIRED*

It doesn't matter if it's Mangini or not. We have changed something. I don't know if this team has ever looked so helpless running the football. Not with Trestman, not with Jimmy Raye, never.

The Hawks have our number in Seattle, but it goes beyond that. Washington got blown out by the Packers, yet they could still run the ball. We have the "best" O-line in the league, yet through two games, we have more negative running plays than I can ever remember. Something is seriously wrong with our game-planning.

They're trying to get too cute with the running game, too many delayed handoff's, draws, runs out of the pistol, no enough physical, push the pile running like they did in 2011.

The downside of Kaepernick taking over is that they've modified the game plans for him, but now they've also made him reluctant to run, thereby inhibiting the reasoning for adjusting the gameplans to take advantage of his athleticism in the first place.
Maybe he is the problem with the offense? Is that the thought?

All I can say is that it "reminds" me of a Mangini led offense; but it doesn't matter. No matter who it is, SOMETHING has changed. We couldn't run the ball against Green Bay either, yet Washington could, even in their blowout.

We really struggled to run the ball for most of the regular season with Kap last year. It wasn't til the playoffs were the running game picked up.

This. Enough of the gimmicky b******t, teams spent all offseason looking to shut it down, 49ers need to go back to their old bread and butter, run-heavy offense, control the clock, efficient passing with the bonus deep play and running threat of Kaepernick.

We have never looked even remotely this bad in the history of the franchise, and that especially includes all of last year.

It's not the read option that's the problem Its the spots that they decide to run it.

Tonight we needed to show who was tougher, we needed to line up and live up to our name as far as what we're known for, running the ball with power and wearing them down.

Jim and Greg Robbed us of a good game tonight. Our line can't block anymore suddenly? or are we getting away from what we should be doing which is running the rock and passing out of that as well..

This is why the game plan is so important it makes all the difference in the world as seen tonight.

Post of the day.
and mangini sure as heck didn't earn his check this week or tonight either.

either that or they totally ignored everything he said.
I honestly thought mangini was brought in specifically for games like the seahawks and giants. Self scouting for the offense. We had the same failings this year as last. It seems like we need to integrate a hurry up offense capability much more than we have. we are always slow to the line. Even our 2 and 4 minute offenses are slow. we need to tighten the screws on that.

2004 begs to differ
Good read, behind the scenes look at Mangini as Browns HC:

Meanwhile, I'm catching some weird vibes around the building. Things feel off. I'm focused on learning the system as fast as I can, so I don't have a lot of time for psychoanalysis, but it's hard to miss. To a man, the entire Browns team seems to be deep in despair. There is a natural sluggishness that occurs during training camp, but this is something different. The men seem positively broken. They have no fight left in them. The locker room is quiet, so quiet. In Denver, even in the midst of training camp, the locker room was lively and social. Cleveland is a mausoleum. That night at my first team meeting, I learn why.

As I sit down in the emptiest seat I can find, I notice that players have handwritten notes scattered about their desks and their laps. They are reading over them nervously. Coach Mangini, a doughy thirty-eight- year- old frat boy with parted hair and a butt-chin, walks in and takes his place at the podium, a dip in his lip and a Styrofoam cup in his hand. He starts off by welcoming the two new men who were signed to the team that morning: me and some other dude.

No idea what a tin-pot dictator, unknown for any sort of offensive wisdom whatsoever, is doing with our team.

Not in running the football.
Fire this "Offensive Consultant" tomorrow. What as he done?
