geez, that came out of nowhere.

You would have thought that if they were gonna sack a guy of the caliber of Mariucci(lets face it, he aint the worst coach ou there) the 9ers would have a 'name lined up ready to replace him.

This guy could be the greatest coach in history, ubt if he doesnt get off to a good start I cant see him being given a lot of time out there.

Oy...what Mart Morningwheg busy? Seriously, to help guide your team towards the Super Bowl you fire a playoff tested coach for a guy who has had success at college, but none in the NFL is something out of the Bengals playbook.

Americans are a resolute people who have risen to every test of our time. Adversity has revealed the character of our country, to the world and to ourselves. America is a strong nation, and honorable in the use of our strength. We exercise power without conquest, and we sacrifice for the liberty of strangers. Americans are a free people, who know that freedom is the right of every person and the future of every nation. The liberty we prize is not America's gift to the world, it is God's gift to humanity.

Enjoy not making the playoffs, 49ers.
Meanwhile Mooch will make the Lions not suck.

Well the 49er's just kinda pulled him out of asses didn't they.

It just seems like they didn't wanna get a coach that actually WINS!!!

I know he won in college be he isn't even .500 in the NFL.

Dennis Erickson ended his NFL tenure with the Seahawks at 32-32.

How good was Buffalo's defense last year to make Ted Cattrell a candidate for the job? What's wrong with giving a coach with NFL head-coaching experience the job? Remeber, he coached Seattle, not exactly the greatest market ever.

As the article said, he was 31-33 as a NFL coach.

Ted Cottrell coached the Jets defence last year, don't blame him for the fence (no D) in Buffalo...

Well the story of Dennis Erickson in Seattle would be diffrent but he got the MOTHER of all NFL screw jobs in that play-off game with the Jets back in 1999. Had there been instant replay and the refs couldve overturned Testaverdes touchdown he wouldve kept his job. I think he did an admirable job in Seattle, they were improving under him till he was canned. And its not like Holmgren has done much better.

They should have hired GODDAMN STAN GELBAUGH~! The man single-handedly led the London Monarchs to the WLAF Championship in 1991. This is a man who has show his ability to lead where it counts most...on the field. Who are we to doubt his ability to lead as a coach? Not I. I recognize the talents of Mr. Gelbaugh and his unique charisma and endless drive is what made him the legend he is today. Despite STAN THE MAN's caucazoid complexion, Jesse Jackson would have no qualms about his hiring as an NFL head coach. Stan Gelbaugh deserves a chance and he deserves it now. Nobody has even considered Stan this year and it hurts me as a fan of the NFL and as an American. And it should hurt you, too.

Hell, I'm not telling you anything you don't already know. The Gelmeister is a living legend and the fact that he can't get a fair shake is a travesty and everyone I know is upset about this tonight. Dennis Erickson=DRUNK. Stan Gelbaugh=SUPERHERO/LEGEND/GENIUS. Stan Gelbaugh is George Halas reincarnated. You know it...oh God, do you ever know it.

It is going to be fun watching the great 49er franchise fall apart like a house of cards if DE is there for more than 1 year. I have a feeling that we are going to have a new 49er head coach in 2004.

Mooch gets them through salary cap hell and gets booted for his efforts.

The key question that arises upon the hiring of Dennis Erickson: Was Richie Kotite's phone busy when the 49ers tried to call him?

Yeah...Tom Flores must have wanted to continue broadcasting Raider games rather than lose 49er games.

I had Seahawk season tickets for the Erickson era in Seattle.

Erikson never really had a fair shot in Seattle. He became head coach when then owner Ken Behring was trying to move the Seahawks to L.A.. The team's up and coming runnng back, Lamar Smith, wrapped a car around a tree paralyzing a back up offensive lineman drinking and driving. Even Erikson received a DUI before his first season. With all the turmoil and not knowing what city the team would be playing in it's safe to say that Erickson walked into a mess. This was before he even coached a game in Seattle.

Once he and the team finally got situated he had to fight Behring for every penny he could get. Then came owner Paul Allen and his right hand man Bob Whitsett who were looking for their own man to coach the team from day one. Two years Erickson coached with rumors circulating about being replaced.

All that being said he built a pretty strong team. The main problem seemed to be that Erickson was to laid back with the team and unorginized at times. That and the fact that he insisted on keeping his assistant coaches, many of whom were clearly not cut out for the NFL. A Vinny Testeverde phantom TD later and he was out of a job.

Enter Mike Holgrem. A man known for his orginaztional and coaching skills. The kind of coach that could turn this team around. Only he was to eager to put his stamp on the team and instead of fine tuning the team he burned it to the ground. Gone were Sam Adams, Pete Kendall, Ahman Green and Joey Galloway. Holgrem could have very well been fired this year with the same record as Erickson, and this with owner Paul Allen, his money and his full support.

Erickson isn't a bad coach although he is a strange pick for the 49ers. Bill Walsh won't tolerate Erickson's unorginized behavior. Plus Erickson isn't widely known for being a West Coast Offense type of coach.

I'm glad to see Dennis Erickson getting a second chance in the NFL. I just don't think that this is the right team for him to be getting that chance.

Tomvejada sez:

    Early prediction for 49ers next year; 4-12.

You, sir, are on powerful narcotics. The '49ers are already a much better team than anything Erikson had in Seattle, and they are getting better.

11-5, win their division, and win a playoff game or two. That's what's in store for San Fran.

Half of my bitterness to the 49ers is because they beat the Giants in the playoffs. The other half is because I hate Terrell Owens.

This will end up about as well as Barry Switzer with the Cowboys, except without the Super Bowl title.

Well Mr. Burns had done it.
The power plant had won it.
With Rogers Clemens clucking all the while.
Mike Scioscia's tragic illness made us smile.
While Wade Boggs lay unconscious on
the barroom tile.
We're talkin'...

Mattingly and Canseco.
Ken Griffey's grotesquely swollen jaw.
Steve Sax and his run-in with the law.
We're talkin' Homer...

While I would lean slightly towards them leaving, this would have happened even if they planned to stay. They're not just going to accept the CVC's offer; it's their opportunity now to counter and work towards the middle. This is just business as usual.
