Martz may lose patience with Lelie; Team tries to restructure contract of D. Smith

Feb 2, 2008 at 10:20 PM--


From Pro Football Weekly's Whispers page:

Our Niners sources have already begun wondering how quickly new offensive coordinator Mike Martz will lose patience with Ashley Lelie if the wide receiver appears as "uninterested" in adapting to the Niners' new system as he did in his first season with the team. We hear Lelie drove WR coach Jerry Sullivan nuts this past season with how long it took for Lelie to learn his routes.

As the Niners apparently continue working on restructuring the contract of veteran ILB Derek Smith, who we're told is really well-liked by head coach Mike Nolan and assistant head coach/defense Mike Singletary, team sources simply can't understand why LB Brandon Moore continues to be the odd man out in the Niners' defense. "It's a real mystery," said one source. "He has played well for them when given the chance. He should be playing a lot more than he is. It just doesn't make a lot of sense."

But did the lack of a preseason impact the 49ers' performance during Week 1? Maybe. But it's probably not the only thing that affected the team on Sunday. It is worth noting that every NFL team was on equal footing when it
