Notes from Mike Nolan’s Monday press conference

Oct 29, 2007 at 12:57 PM--


Nolan opened by saying that he takes full responsibility for this football team and their 2-5 record.

When asked if he was embarrassed by the way that this team has played, Nolan stated that he was not because this team continues to fight.

Did the team quit? Nolan feels that the team is more frustrated than anything else. When asked about a player flipping off the fans, referring to kicker Joe Nedney, he felt that team was frustrated and that is where that action came from. Nolan said that he has spoken to Nedney and that he was very apologetic about this actions towards the fans. No disciplinary action will be taken by the team but Nolan assumes the league will take action against Nedney.

Nolan felt that while Smith did overthrow some passes, his play was not affected by his shoulder injury.

When asked if he feels whether he was worried about job security, Nolan stated that he will never be motivated by job security and is more worried about getting on track and winning. He is more worried about meeting his own expectations rather than the expectations of the owners of the team.

Nolan felt that the offensive line did a good job in protecting the quarterback for most of the game. He also stated that if this team is healthy, they are much more formidable of an opponent than what we have seen.

Nolan wanted to point out that, while this team is young at key positions, this team needs to learn how to not play as a young team. The have veteran leadership, but players like Smith, Gore, Robinson, Staley, Davis and others are still very young.

Nolan hopes that wide receiver Jason Hill gets more playing time and that he showed some promise while on the field. He felt that Hill ran some good routes in his limited playing time on Sunday. He also felt that tight end Vernon Davis did some good things on Sunday.

Frank Gore is frustrated about not winning but Nolan spoke to him and felt that they had a positive conversation.

There are no updates on injuries and Nolan probably will not hear anything until Wednesday.

While he confirmed that tight end Delanie Walker injured his shoulder, Nolan did not want to comment on what the injury actually was.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch held their end-of-season press conference on Wednesday. Here is everything they had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. We spoke to QB Brock Purdy yesterday and he mentioned getting some more images done yesterday afternoon. Any clarity coming out of that as far as what kind of surgery he's going to have, how long he'll be out?

49ers' Kyle Shanahan voices opinion on neutral-site conference championship games

Last week, Pro Football Talk reported that the NFL has at least looked into the possibility of holding conference championship games at neutral sites, much like what the league dues with the Super Bowl and what college football does with bowl games. "Within the league office, the interest in neutral-site title games has become very real," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "The NFL envies the atmosphere of major college bowl games, where a 50/50 mix of fans are decked out in team colors. It's one thing about college football that pro football does not fully replicate." Many have been critical of the idea, including

The end of the 2022 season brings a whole new set of questions for the San Francisco 49ers -- questions that will start to get answered in the weeks and months ahead after looming large in the locker room following their NFC Championship loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. The 49ers have a number of players slated for free agency and will have to make some tough decisions on who will stay and who will go. Two of those players -- offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey and defensive back Jimmie Ward -- spoke about their futures on Sunday while also reflecting on their time with the 49ers. We'll talk about what McGlinchey and Ward said Sunday, as well as a number of other topics in this version of 49ers Notebook. We'll also dive into what happened to Nick Bosa



Should the 49ers re-sign RT Mike McGlinchey?

The San Francisco 49ers are now focused on the offseason, with their season ending at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles in a 31-7 loss on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game. Which means it's time for personnel decisions, likely coaching staff departures, and of course, quarterback talk. But, one of the biggest questions that the 49ers face come with free agent right tackle Mike McGlinchey, who is likely to earn the most money of any San Francisco free agent in 2022. McGlinchey has faced his ups and downs as a 49er, but has been a valuable run-defender, and the starting right tackle for the past five seasons. However, he is likely to command a hefty salary on the open market, and could look for a fresh opportunity after the amount of
