    This was a good point Conc made - for those who want people fired (and trust me I'm in the group) - that if you want to fire people (norv, rivera, aj, shelmon, etc.) you should know who you want to replace them with.

    Ok so here you go; whoever you fire you put a name out there to replace. Frankly do that as much as you can with players too.

    So here's my $0.02 for off-season

    GM: AJ Smith (he is removed from all coaches decisions. He will work with whomever I tell him to and shut the **** up. He will improve immediately and stop being so completely adverse to FA signings or he will be fired in 2011)
    HC: Russ Grimm (Former Assistant Head Coach/Offensive Coordinator - Arizona Cardinals) - A former hog, a hard nosed SOB, someone who preaches toughness and physicality and fundamentals. Just what we need.
    OC: No idea, TBD. See who gets fired etc
    DC: Wade Phillips We were successful with him before, we played incredibly hard under him before, I can't see why we won't do it again.


    Following players cut, and their replacements next to them

    Clinton Hart - Kevin Ellison (or in FA Dawan Landry)
    Antonio Cromartie - Antoine Cason
    Marcus McNeil (if he wants too much money) - Daryn Colledge in FA
    Jeromey Clary - I don't care
    Shawne Merriman - if he wants too much money
    Shaun Phillips - I don't care

    Resign
    Vincent Jackson

    Trade Block

    Release the entire defense, promote the entire practice squad, then release DE Andre Coleman (that seems to be the pattern with this guy).

    No doubt. What happened there AJ? Diamond in front of your face.

    Imagine Weddle and Dawk back there.

    A couple chunks of beef on the line, a DC with a vision (Wade, excellent observation Ant) and we have a 'D' again.

    As a note, this is at least something to work our frustration at - other then cursing and being pissed off, this at least suggests a solution.

    Wanna call this moronic or worthless? That's your right. Shows you have your own frustration you don't wanna deal with.

    FIRE NORV and bring Brian Billick, Chucky, or woo Mike Singletary away from the 49ers. We need SMASH MOUTH FOOTBALL not this soft touch stuff we are getting now. We need a coach that will MOTIVATE these guys!

    Jesus christ. :tdown:

    This is why I do not venture into the threads as much or at all.

    Ant - slap yourself. :trout:

    The team needs line help and not stupidity.

    We need two if not three defensive tackles, a right tackle, a Center, and maybe a right guard. Then we need QUALITY depth on BOTH SIDES the LINES. I can not bang that drum any harder. The defensive front 7 is getting ABUSED and it starts on the D-LINE. The proverbial war is won or lost right here (trenches) and we do not have the horses even on a good day to get it done.

    The defensive secondary if fine. Cro if fine. Hart, Jammer and Ellison (shows promise) are set. Chambers is gone next year. Move Osgood to WR. We need another monster LB.

    I have been saying Cottrell was a scape goat and I see no difference between what Rivera runs and what Cottrell ran. Nada. Fans are idiots. There does not need to be a scorched earth policy or ethnic cleansing of the team. We have however, regressed since Marty's departure.

    Trade Merriman, Hester, Floyd, Buster Davis and cut LT after this season if he does not accept a vet minimum contract.

    If this team does not make the playoffs, Norv Turner is gone.

    A.J. Smith is GOD and Spanos is the Anti-Christ. :bolt:

    The idiots are obvious. Fix the line and the secondary will SHINE as it did before. That is why you and most forum rats freaking suck *** at knowing who to cut or even WTF they are watching. That is why it took YOU YEARS to tuck tail and finally admit Jammer ain't all that bad. It is the same freaking stupid ****.

    Most of you do not even consider the fact JESUS FREAKING CHRIST could man every position in the secondary and even his *** will get torched by the devil himself if he has all day to bust a move.

    This secondary group set RECORDS for INT's when the god damn front 7 did their jobs yet most want to purge the entire group or the key players who would make a difference - HART and Weddle included. That makes sense to 99.99% of the posters and why Jammer coincidentially called the fans idiots. Touche' :tdown:

    beat me to it :icon_rofl:

    As far as a solution

    IF this season is a waste, Fire Norv, Rivera, get Rex Ryan (oops) I mean Singletary (oops again) get a tough innovative agressive SOB as coach

    Let Merriman go in FA (if he plays decently maybe a put first round tender or a sign and trade), Cro's gone also

    Bring in beef in the draft !!!

    At least I didn't sell out on the team and cancel my season tickets because I'm so much smarter than everyone else.

    GTFO and take your holier than thou attitude with you.

    I agree 100% but along with beef there's alot of other things I want too, like a new SS, another CB, a HC/OC/DC with balls, etc

    Also, seems like all the people who were upset after game 1 are starting to be justified in thier disgust for our opening performance.

    1 game is a fluke, 4 games is a trend.

    You started with none sense about AJ (as though his job is even remotely threatened at this point) ...... then you ended with Dielman on the Trading block. :tdown:

    In between, .... is basic ****.

    Illogic ?:tdown:

    You support Hart. Therefore, every point you ever make is invalid.

    AJ made a big schpiel about how he wanted continuity in hiring Norv and Cottrell. That hasn't exactly worked out for us. And frankly looking at Singletary and Ryan both of whom I wanted BADLY, maybe it wasn't such a bad idea.

    Dielman isn't as nasty or as effective as he used to be so I'm wondering if anything can be gained for him.

    I actually agree with you about the front seven and the trenches, I've been big on the need for prime beef with you from the get go. But there's issues that need to be met as well, including Cro, Hart, Merriman, etc.

    At the very least this is here to give people who are pissed off some mental exercise to work on how to fix it.

    People just go running around calling this bullshit and whatnot are full of it themselves - at least have the balls to argue and not name call (not claiming your doing this)

    AJ is on the hot seat. Spanos is thinking of Beathard right now, I guarantee it.
