49ers Fans Express Displeasure: “Fire Nolan” Ad to Fly Over Stadium on Game Day

Dec 12, 2007 at 4:35 PM--


49er fan John Davis, also known on our forums as nflguy49, has had enough, and he is making his feelings known to anyone who can look up to the sky. John and other 49er fans all helped pay for a blimp with a lighted display. The blimp will fly 3,000 feet over the stadium during Saturday's game and read, "FIRE NOLAN." It will fly above the stadium between 5:45 and 6:00PM PST.

"We are tired of watching our team get out coached every week," stated Davis. "Nolan is a dictator. He acts as though he has already accomplished great things and thus everyone should worship his every word."

Davis cited several issues, such as Nolan's clock management, Nolan's relationship with Alex Smith, and his poor calls on 4th down spanning back to last season's game against the Rams where a 4th down call is believed to have cost the team the game. All of those issues, and then some, should be enough to signal an end to Nolan's tenure, contends Davis.

Nolan has come under fire from the media and fans alike after this weeks events. Quarterback Alex Smith's comments to the Mercury News indicated that Nolan was undermining him in the locker room. Mike Nolan, on his weekly KNBR show, responded by saying that it was a misunderstanding. Since then, Smith and Nolan released a statement saying that their relationship was patched up.

Add this weeks events to a 3 and 13 start and arguably the worst offense in 49er history and you have the basis for a fan uprising.

"As fans were tired of spending thousands of dollars every year to fly out and watch games and to watch the 49ers on the NFL package, only to see the poor product that Nolan has created.

"Nolan is an empty suit and we can't take it anymore."

Young wore No. 97 during his time with San Francisco, the only team he played for during his 14-year career. Another player wears that number now — defensive end Nick Bosa. What does Young, who spent some time coaching through the college and pro ranks after his NFL career, think about the talented second-year player? "Nick does a good job just in terms of one, being a very knowledgable player," Young told Maiocco. "He sees the game. You can tell he's been surrounded by good coaching. And then just his family history. His dad played, his brother played, and so

Despite spending some time as division foes before the NFL realigned the NFC West, the San Francisco 49ers and New Orleans Saints aren't exactly rivals. A few more games like the Week 14 nail-biter last season could change that. Whoever is running the 49ers' social media account might want to ignite something, judging by an impressively clever tweet on Thursday. The post was meant to remind fans to wear masks during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which threatens the 2020 NFL season and sports in general. And that individual did so while taking a shot at the Saints. Be a saint. Grab a face mask.

Armstead spoke with Sactown Magazine and is featured on the cover of its July/August issue. The publication posted the following quote from Armstead via Instagram (h/t to Alex Didion of NBC Sports Bay Area). "If you don't want me speaking out against racism and social
