    The frustations are starting to mount in S.F. and Smith may be the first to feel the impact:

    "We're 0-3,'' Smith said, when asked if he expected changes. "I would certainly say so. I wouldn't be surprised [by] it. It's part of the deal. It's the name of the game here.''

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Raye should be fired on Monday.
    Here you go...

    The 49ers have fired offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye, the NFL Network reported Monday morning, less than a day after head coach Mike Singletary said Raye would serve in that capacity for the remainder of the season.

    Nope. If they don't make the playoffs AS will not get a new contract.

    I don't want the 49ers to suck this year because of how much I like 8BR and sizzle, but the thought of them taking Harbaugh from Stanford next year has me positively giddy.

    I care more about long term viability. If we can keep Manusky and land Harbaugh as the head guy, I could live with that.

    Good hell, Jimmy Raye was awful. Alex Smith wasn't bad under Norv Turner. He'll likely be out of SD after this season, but Turner is a helluva OC, really one of the best in the business.

    Gruden and Cowher are waiting in the wings. I think Jerry Jones is going to get Cowher this offseason. Gruden would be a good fit in SF and he's also a part of the Bill Walsh coaching tree.

    Other coaches are running circles around SF. I like Singletary and he's probably a good DC, but how many games has SF lost as a result of unforced errors over the past couple years?

    The QB question has to be answered this offseason. It looks like SF has a legit shot at the #1 pick and I'm not sure if you answer the QB question with drafting Andrew Luck (and maybe picking up Jim Harbaugh as coach along the way), or just try to find some vet or trade for someone's back up (Kevin Kolb?). I would rather go with a vet or other team's back up, especially if Kolb is available. If SF can lure Gruden out of the booth, I think Kolb going from Philly's system to Gruden's system would be a pretty good idea.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    49ers are crap. Total crap! They find ways to lose games.

    Smith should be benched on Monday. He is not competent in the red zone; he's not fit to start in the NFL.

    Clements falls on the ball and the game is over too. Whatever.

    Goodbye, Sing. Hello Harbaugh!

    Singletary may be a great motivator as a coach, but he has never been a defensive coordinator and really isn't regarded as a great tactician. Greg Manusky has always been the defensive mind in San Fran, where the thought is that Sing is the guy to get the players motivated and play to their best. So far, mixed results. They seem to get up for big games (their best two games against New Orleans and Atlanta) and blow games they should probably win.

    Of the worst teams in the league so far this year (1-3 or 0-4) Detroit (Stafford), Cleveland (McCoy), Carolina (Claussen) already have their QBs of the future. Buffalo and Oakland both could look to draft a guy high, though both seem to have more needs than just a QB. Buffalo is legitimately bad, but I think Oakland won't finish in the bottom 5 teams of the league this year.

    As far as coaches are concerned, I wouldn't be surprised if Singletary is given the year. I really do think their eyes would be on Harbaugh or Gruden to replace him, with Harbaugh doing wonders in Stanford (and his brother doing a pretty good job as a head coach in Baltimore) and with Gruden having ties to the West Coast offense and San Fran, and having won, I think either choice would work. I'd probably lean towards Gruden given his success at the NFL level if I were choosing, and with a feeling that the talent on the offense (Gore, Davis and Crabtree) all would fit very well in a West Coast style offense.

    I can also say that this has been a hellacious football season for me with San Fran combining for a 1-8 record, two fired coordinators, scoring a total of 128 points (for an average of 14 points a game) while giving up 247 points (for an average of 27 points a game). It's just ugly.

    It'll be interesting to see what happens this week for SF. Especially with a Sunday night matchup vs. 2-2 Philly, who may be running Kevin Kolb out there.

    Any talk from SF of making a QB change? Or will Smith get another shot? I want him to be more consistant, but it's just not happening. After going 6-6 for 65 and a TD on the opening drive, he just completely fell apart, but I can't imagine there is a ton of faith in David Carr coming in.

    Watching Washington v. Green Bay and I am wishing we could have somehow landed Orakpo (or Clay Matthews). Those guys have done a great job putting pressure on the QB. We could use a guy like that.

    Yeah. Instead the Niners miss a sack and give up the TD.

    Also, I can't believe the 49ers are still getting smoked by the screen 24x7.

    Gore with the fumble, directly after a good conversion by Smith. The 49ers have 0 pass rush. They're letting Kolb do whatever he wants back there.

    I don't mind it. At least they're going down field. TG never really knew where the ball was and it was into double coverage, but at least they're pushing it.

    Crabs with a couple of nice catches that last drive.

    If Smith is calling the plays in the two minute offense they may want to let him do that more often.

    This might be his best game as a Niner (crabs).

    It would have been nice to capitalize on the TO. Nedney has to hit that.

    Now if Gore will start playing; 13 rushes 22 yds. Yikes.

    I haven't seen every game but what I've seen I haven't been that impressed with either Iupati or Davis. They seem like average linemen, Davis in particular undisciplined with a lot of false starts. Not what you'd expect from first round guys.

    PS Eff you Frank Gore. Two fumbles? What's up bra?

    When they go everyone wide, Davis jumps 90% percent of the time - especially on the hard count.

    That last play where Smith was caught on the tuck and run is a perfect example of what you're saying on Iupati. If he just holds that block for two more seconds, AS get the first down. Make a play, Iupati.

    Yup. Or not getting their pad levels low enough to move a guy and get stood up.

    Defense not helping much. Back them up to a 3rd and 18 and let Kolb run free.

    I think I may have given up after that play. They're looking for ways to lose.
