The talent level on the San Francisco 49ers is unbelievably horrid. But you just get the sense that so many of these "scrubs" we're playing could be serviceable players if the coaching were better, if our coaches knew what they were doing and if they paid the amount of attention to detail that it takes to win in this league. The preparation for each game has been beyond atrocious and has been a disgrace to this great organization--and that falls directly on the coaching staff.

This team is unbelievably messed up from top to bottom, bottom to top, left to right, right to left, north west to south west, south east to north east...you get the picture.

This is where we (the 49ers fan base) challenge John York:

We challenge you to save this Organization. We challenge you to do this by firing Erickson and his careless and incompetent coaching staff and hiring Nick Saban from LSU to be the Head Coach of this football team at all costs.

Hiring Saban away from LSU is going to take a very large contract. It will take 6 million a year to get him. He will leave if that kind of money is on the table, but he won't leave LSU for a penny less.

But regardless of dollars and cents, this franchise needs a change in attitude. We can draft as many talented College kids as we want, but the attitude will never change unless the attitude of the 49ers Front Office shows change. The only way to get this team fighting and inspired again is for the Front Office to make an incredibly inspiring move--like a move to get a rarely ingenious and competitive Head Coach to truly lead this organization through the thick and the thin. Sure, it will take a large contract--but it's really peanuts when you think of what his impact would be like.

Getting Dennis Erickson seemed like a good move to get us over the top at the time. But now that the team has tanked, so has his desire to coach this team. It's only obvious. He thought he could ride this team to a Super Bowl title, and now that those chances are now very unlikely, he frankly doesn't care anymore.

That awful attitude has spread around this team like the plague. Our players aren't inspired anymore, nobody is playing with any heart, and the talented players we do have aren't living up to their potential--and a big part of that has to do with the awful coaching and the coaching staff's obvious lack of attention to detail.

Give Nick Saban the keys to this organization and we won't be sorry. Give him the keys to this organization and an unprecedented contract with the idea that this team needs to be rebuilt from top to bottom and we'll eventually come out as winners. Saban won't enter this organization with the thought that he can ride easily to a Championship--he'll come in and will make sure the mess gets cleaned up ASAP. Give him personnel power if he wants it--give him whatever he wants. Let Saban mold this team and build it into a winner. It's not like Terry Donahue has done anything impressive ever since Bill Walsh left. So don't blow a great coach like Nick Saban off if he wants some Front Office power--Donahue certainly hasn't shown that he's irreplaceable as a General Manager or that he's too savvy to take power from.

Give Saban this great contract (6 million a year) and send a message to the rest of the league and the players on the team that THIS TEAM IS ABOUT WINNING. LOSING IS UNACCEPTABLE. Instantly change the attitude and the direction of this team (for the better) by getting Nick Saban at all costs and please end this miserable time of 49ers football. Fix this situation before fans become compelled to put the paper bags over their heads at the games and give us all something to look forward to. Give us a reason to watch this team with enthusiasm every week.

Thank you Dr. York for your time, and hopefully by the signatures in this Petition you realize that it's time for change--the fans want it desperately and know that their beloved San Francisco 49ers WILL be the next Cincinnati Bengals if something isn't done about this mess *now*. Another season of this kind of losing under such a pathetic and uninspired coaching regime and this team could become entrenched as a perennial loser for several years to come. But you have a chance to rectify it, RIGHT NOW. A lack of drastic changes after such an awful and miserable football season screams that a football team doesn't care whether they win or lose. Getting Nick Saban and kicking out Dennis Erickson's pathetic regime is just the kind of "drastic change" the 49ers and the fans (us) need. Getting Nick Saban would energize the 49ers franchise and fans more than anything--more than signing Julian Peterson to a long-term contract, more than drafting a great College player with the 1st overall draft pick, more than signing a big-name Free Agent.

We hope you step up to this challenge and squash all of the "York is cheap" talk, and we all hope for better years ahead for the San Francisco 49ers.

    I never agreed with the hiring of Erickson and I still do not. This man is not a quality NFL coach (college, yes). He has no understanding of the pro game. I don't agree on Nick Saban, either, but I also don't have a name of someone I would like to see. J
