Nolan "doomed" in San Fran?

Jan 1, 2008 at 7:12 PM--


From ProFootballTalk's Rumor Mill:

In response to the news that 49ers coach Mike Nolan will keep his job but with lesser authority, a source with knowledge of the situation believes that it won't last.

"It's totally doomed," said the source. "He's not the type of guy to handle that relationship with a higher authority. I give him one year, tops."

It really does seem odd to us that the Yorks wouldn't think enough of Nolan to give him final say over personnel, but would still believe he's the answer at head coach. It would have made a lot more sense to just move on -- especially in an offseason with relatively few head-coaching vacancies.

Football fans and film junkies often find themselves in separate camps on a variety of football-related issues. Should a team have a stronger pass game or a pounding ground attack? When building a roster, should a team start with skill players or linemen? How about drafting a punter in the fourth round of the draft? During the offseason, one question I heard asked was if the 2019 San Francisco 49ers were a had a better defense due to its ball-hawking secondary or bludgeoning defensive line. There's enough evidence to compare the 2018 49ers' defense with the 2019 version and craft a lengthy thesis supporting the secondary or the defensive linemen. For me, the significant uptick in defensive line play places
