Unless we am mistaken, Jim Tomsula kinda sorta discharged himself Monday.
Tomsula did not meant to do it, of course. But during his Monday media session, a 49ers conduct manager faced a doubt about how he and his staff are doing. He replied by fundamentally revelation that a scoreboard (Detroit 32-17 in a latest pleasant installment) does not work in their favor.
“We’re in a performance-based business,” Tomsula said. “We’ve got 4 wins, man. It’s volatile. we know that, everybody understands that. When you’re a coach, a notation we pointer a contract, boom, time starts.”
Right. And it would seem that a time is ticking down to Tomsula’s final moments during a podium.
It’s not as if a aspiring Jimmy T even did most to disagree with that grounds Monday. Four times during his presser, Tomsula pronounced there was “no excuse” for a 7 neutral section penalties by a 49ers defensive section in Sunday’s game. He called a opening “no good.” Tomsula pronounced that he could not “sit adult here and urge it any way,” even yet he was station and not sitting.
What else? Tomsula also certified that a 49ers’ messy rebellious issues are not “nailed down” and that his staff “obviously doesn’t have a right answers yet” for that problem.
And there was this: we asked given Tomsula’s team, that began Dec with an fortifying overtime feat in Chicago, could not build on that outcome and what he competence have finished as a manager to make things go improved over a past 3 weeks.
In response, Tomsula referenced a detriment in Cleveland, that he concurred was “no good” and a “big step down.” Then, after he talked about how he still saw some good signs of a coaches and younger players starting to “gel,” he answered my question.
“What could we have done?” Tomsula said. “Probably, in Cleveland we put a lot of importance on starting quick in terms of throwing a ball, removing it down a margin and things like that. And that’s usually not how we’re built right now. So, that’s a Jimbo.”
He did not go on to precisely conclude what a “Jimbo” is. But my hypothesis is that it was a personal mess-up. Future historians might use a word to report a whole 2015 season.
So to review: Tomsula pronounced there was no forgive for a 49ers’ defensive “Jimbos” on Sunday. He pronounced his staff can find no answers for a missed tackles. Also, he expected messed adult a diversion devise in Cleveland himself by proposing that a 49ers offense try to do something it did not have a crew to do.
To counterfeit a certain 49ers ubiquitous manager, somewhere in there we consider Tomsula pronounced that he couldn’t give us most justification that he should lapse in 2016.
Although usually for a record, Tomsula pronounced he had not discussed his pursuit conditions with a front bureau and stated: “I’m going to manager until somebody tells me I’m not.”
Count me among those who trust a 49ers will tell him he’s not. They roughly have no choice.
I know, we know. Common knowledge says that owners Jed York and G.M. Trent Baalke will keep Tomsula given A) they don’t wish to acknowledge they were wrong in employing him and B) they trust he had an unfit charge given of final season’s pivotal retirements and this season’s pivotal injuries.
I am of a accurate conflicting view. The 49ers are in a discombobulated and awful state. York does not need aeroplane banners to tell him this. He contingency make many tough and radical decisions to get a authorization behind on any arrange of playoff contending path. He might or might not make those tough moves. But a easiest preference and simplest pierce is always to change conduct coaches. So that’s a initial thing a 49ers will do.
Tomsula has indeed endured some hapless breaks. And he was inheriting an 8-8 team, not a multiplication champion. Another .500 deteriorate would have been distinct and maybe even acceptable. But a new waste to Cleveland and Detroit, dual beatable teams that have had their possess issues, were … well, no good and not excusable. They were Jimbos. After Tomsula is dismissed, who knows? Everything should be on a table. That includes Baalke’s position and a whole front bureau structure. York might usually be peaceful to go so far. But he once discharged Mike Singletary nearby a finish of a six-win deteriorate — dual some-more than Tomsula has warranted so distant — and afterwards done a confidant pierce by employing Jim Harbaugh. Don’t automatically assume something like that can’t occur again.
The idea that no suggestive possibilities will be meddlesome in a position is also a fake one. For instance, we have good information that Mike Holmgren, who coached both a Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks to a Super Bowl, is meddlesome in articulate about a job. Holmgren has been out of a diversion given 2012. But as a San Francisco local and former 49ers descent coordinator, he has an love for a franchise.
None of that might lead to anything. Holmgren is expected to make final about crew matters that a 49ers are demure to meet. But given not during slightest flog a tires on Holmgren’s quip vehicle? He is 67 years old. But here are 4 other stream NFL conduct coaches in their 60’s: Tom Coughlin, Pete Carroll, Bill Belichick and Bruce Arians. Three of a 4 have won Super Bowls. The fourth might win a subsequent one. Plus, if Holmgren is meddlesome in a gig, others certainly would be underneath a right conditions.
Meanwhile, Tomsula does have one some-more diversion to manager this season, Sunday opposite St. Louis during Levi’s Stadium. It would be good to see him go out but a Jimbo. But we can’t see it creation a disproportion in either there’s a new 49ers manager in 2016. Tomsula himself keeps creation a best box for it.
