    Not a Martz fan at all but he definitely should be able to improve the offense. He doesn't have the personnel that he will need to make a big impact though.

    he needs to learn the run also but he knows the widerecievers to get.

    Crowned Doesn't give a shit.

    hes a good oc , but hes got very complex schemes and when you got morons like the Lions who cant understand them it makes him look bad, this is an improvement in the 49ers personnel.

    IMO, he's not what the 49ers need, he's not a QB guy so Smith is still hecked we have no WRs and Martz loves to go long, what's he going to do with Gore????? The only guy on the team that is probably happy about this change is Vernon Davis.

    We're going to see another year of freaking crap.

    Why would VD be happy? Martz doesn't even use TE for the most part.

    He'll use him now as a WR, silly.

    Martz has a great offensive mind and can create some interesting schemes obviously but....he's a little nuts if you ask me and I would think that the Niners and Smith could use some stability. Not something new and complex and a little nutty.

    I agree 100% Sweets. This in no way benefits Alex Smith and will only get him gone for another year. If i were a Niner fan i would have wanted a guy that will build around Smiths strengths and not bring in a guy like Martz, that in known for getting QBs murderedddd.

    jeez i know what you guys are thinking but i really think shaun hill will make a real push for the starting job next year it depends on how alex smith plays.

    totally agree.....

    i think Cameron would have been a better fit. Nolan and Martz will clash....it will last one season at most. i'm wondering if Martz could end up replacing Nolan after next season.

    Cameron would have been the perfect fit. So, being as we are the 49ers, we naturally went in the opposite direction and got the guy who is notorious for running a wide open RB and TE free offense. Yeah, we've got a great between the tackles power runner, a freakish TE, no qb and almost no wideouts. So let's get the guy who likes to do nothing but throw throw throw!! Success!! :tsk:

    I mean, ok, we will probably have a better offense with Martz than we did with Hoss but still, why not go for the best option available and get a guy who has a reputation for success with a team that had similar strengths as us?

    It's freaking baffling.

    EDIT: Oh, and no I don't see Martz as a potential replacement for Nolan, unless he somehow totally turns the offense into a playoff-caliber squad. If anything it's the opposite, Nolan is going to use him as a scapegoat in order to keep his own job if the offense fails and again sinks the team. Nolan can just pull the "It wasn't my fault, Mike had total control over the offense!" card and bamboozle the Yorks into giving him a contract extension. See, hiring a guy like Cameron or Gailey would almost assure at least competency on the offensive side of the ball and make Nolans gameday coaching inadequacies more glaring as a result. Martz is the kind of guy who is either going to have spectacular success or spectacular failure, either way it's good for Nolan. He will be seen as a genius for taking a gamble on a guy like Martz and making such a good hire if he succeeds, and has himself a scapegoat if he fails.
