When your 2-6, you start finding all kinds of problems, and arguing about leadership should be about 50th down the list... between the head coach and the quarterback. What we should be discussing and spending all this time on is how we're going to pass block certain blitz packages and what type of reads we're looking at and can we stop running the ball every first down and can we set up a sequence of plays that actually benefits the next series of plays, i.e. play-action and some of those things, utilizing your players, and getting your defense to play up their abilities. It's been a little bit of a frustrating year, and so I think anything that starts diverting from the action on the field and execution ends up being not a positive, and not constructive talk at this point.
— Brent Jones, on KNBR's Morning Show (mp3) Despite the long, rambling run-on sentence, it's hard not to agree with Jones that this teams priorities are a bit screwed up at this point.
