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."

The NFC Championship game is here. It's number one against number two, and the San Francisco 49ers are the underdogs on the road. It seems the 49ers have to play a perfect game to beat the number-one team in football. If the 49ers want a trip to the Super Bowl, they must stick to these keys to victory against the Philadelphia Eagles. Attack with the Run The Eagles' run defense is ranked 17th in the league allowing, on average, 121.6 yards per game. As ferocious as their pass rush is, the Eagles struggle to stop the run. Good thing the 49ers like to run the ball with their plethora of running backs. Expect running backs Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell (assuming he plays; Mitchell is questionable due to a groin injury) to lead the way. Head coach Kyle

The Philadelphia Eagles might have been the better team in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday. But were they 31-7 better than the San Francisco 49ers? Probably not. Of course, we are all left wondering what might have happened had rookie quarterback Brock Purdy not been hurt in the first quarter. The 49ers felt they had prepared a great game plan for their bout with the Eagles. Unfortunately, that quickly got thrown out the window. "We were really excited for today, and we really wanted an opportunity to play that team," head coach Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "They played great, and they did good things, but we wish we had a little bit better
