Jimmy Raye San Francisco 49ers

Chiefs D costs 49ers offensive coordinator his job

One day after the Kansas City Chiefs defense allowed only three meaningful points to the San Francisco 49ers, the 49ers have fired offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye.

I intentionally left out the last second touchdown pass to Josh Morgan, being a completely meaningless score and the result of bad offensive game calling/planning, which led to Morgan being injured on the play, simply so the scoreboard would read 31-10 instead of 31-3.

Morgan, who twisted his knee on the touchdown reception, is not expected to miss any time.

Reports say that Chiefs defenders were calling out the 49ers’ plays correctly before the snap. Raye was fired only 18 hours after receiving the dreaded “Vote of Confidence.”

The Chiefs defense sacked 49ers quarterback Alex Smith five times, three by Defensive end Tamba Hali, forcing an interception and a fumble (recovered by Niners). The 49ers managed only 11 first downs, 43 rushing yards and 208 passing yards.

I leave you with this question:

Is the Chiefs defense really this good, or does the firing of Jimmy Raye with his “bland and predictable” play calling make you hesitant to believe right now?
