Perhaps we can now acquire a quarterback who wants to work with a different offensive coordinator, hmm? A day after 49ers coach Mike Singletary said Jimmy Raye would be the offensive coordinator for the rest of the season, Raye was fired by San Francisco. Quarterbacks coach Mike Johnson was promoted to lead play caller, and becomes the 49ers’ eighth offensive coordinator in eight seasons. What a headache!
San Fran yesterday had just 251 total yards of offense, 11 first downs, and held the ball for just 26:10. The team lost their opener 31-6 in Seattle, hung in but lost to the Saints 25-22, and now have lost to the Chiefs. Coach Mike Singletary gave Raye a vote of confidence after the game yesterday, which now means nothing that the Niners will move in another direction after their awful start.
