The 49er fans don't deserve Glen Coffee

There has been a lot of this kind of talk over at sites like Niner's Nation during the past year...

As for Coffee, he was abysmally abysmal, which, of course, is the inverse of "tremendously tremendous" (hat-tip:Fooch). Just to make sure you put the stats in their proper perspective, Coffee's DYAR-per-carry of -1.02 means that, if Coffee was the 49ers' starter, and they had to replace him for whatever reason, an average backup would gain 1.02 more yards per carry than he did. However, being that Coffee is, in fact, a backup, his negative DYAR/R really just means that the Niners might want to find a new backup.

Perhaps these guys should give a gander to this article in the Sacramento Bee... 

Here's an interesting breakdown from the guys at Football Outsiders that mathematically shows what every 49ers fan strongly suspected about the 2009 team: The offensive line wasn't very good. In fact, FO ranks the 49ers dead last in a category it calls adjusted line yards (running plays).

Even worse, the information suggests that it was a painfully predictable running strategy that set the ground game up to fail. But, obviously, the fan's pick out a rookie running back as the culprit.
