The majority of San Francisco 49ers fans spoke highly about Robert Saleh on Thursday night and wished him well in New York. A few fans are still in the mindset that Saleh is overrated and blah blah, but those fans are few and far between.

The players who have played for Saleh had nothing but positive things to say about the Jets' future head coach.

Towards the end of the season, Fred Warner said that Saleh was the best defensive coordinator in the league.

Staley doesn’t speak up unless he actually means it. So if he says this about Saleh, it’s true.

Russell Wilson and DeForest Buckner both complimented on Saleh, the man. Wilson said, “Great coach. Better Man!” Buck added, “Phenomenal coach and even better man.”

Let’s take a look at some other reactions:

If history is any proof, Sam Darnold was being held back by Adam Gase, and Mike LaFleur should turn the Jets' offense around. I’m fascinated to see how aggressive the Jets are in free agency and if they move the No. 2 overall pick. Plus, if Saleh brings in the same type of defenders that San Francisco has. Namely, the big, long, and athletic defensive lineman like Arik Armstead.
