    Foerster was a bad hire. He was the O-line coach for the 49ers the year before Gase hired him. Kaepernick was the most sacked QB in the league Foerster's last year there and the 49ers had one of the worst rushing offenses in the league as well. His whole career has been up and down as far as sack numbers and rushing average/yardage...mostly down.

    2015 with 49ers - 21st rushing offense, 29th pass offense (53 sacks)
    2014 with Redskins - 19th rushing offense, 11th pass offense (58 sacks)
    2013 with Redskins - 5th rushing offense, 16th pass offense (43 sacks)
    2012 with Redskins - 1st rushing offense, 20th pass offense (33 sacks)
    2011 with Redskins - 16th rushing offense, 14th pass offense (41 sacks)
    2010 with Redskins - 30th rushing offense, 8th pass offense (46 sacks)

    That's just a small sample but for a guy who's supposed to come up with the blocking scheme on pass plays he's not protecting the QB. Not to mention he was the OC here in 2004, the year Wannstedt quit and we all know how bad that offense was.

    I remember someone posted the rankings for all chris coached teams. Thanks for showing us how bad of a hire this really was. Gase's suit of armor is hardly without dents.

    ...And probably do twice as much work, as Foerster probably did.

    This explain why our offense was always in danger of ’delaying of game’.

    Our OL is clueless. As any drug council would tell you, addicts are only concern about three things, getting money to buy drug, buying drug, and using drug, and repeat. Don’t think for a minute that Foerster had his heart on preparation and actually coaching after a few lines and talking to a pregnant stripper. He might pretended or going through the motion, but he didn’t care. Anyone tells you coke makes your more alert and perform better is a drug dealer.

    That's all that needs to be said lol He must've been high as F if he thought Billy Turner and Dallas Thomas were NFL caliber players.

    We should bring Tony Sparano back. He has worked miracles in Oakland. Everyone is quick to give D.Carr all the credit, but Tony is a huge part of it.

    Perhaps we can bring in some fresh opinions on our blocking schemes

    I see the resume of someone that is coaching to the talent level and athleticism on his team FOR RUN BLOCKING. With that said, looks like he can't coach pass blocking to save his life.

    I am not defending him or calling him a good OL coach.

    You know what I want to know? Was he the one who wanted to start Dallas Thomas and Billy Turner last year? If he was the one making that recommendation... he should have been fired in the offseason.

    False. I've never tried cocaine. Not my drug of choice, but I've been around people who've used it. It definitely makes someone more alert. There's a reason why cocaine is often synonymous with pulling all nighters, working on projects, etc.

    Just like many other professions, you can go far in the NFL based solely on who you know rather than what you know. He isn't the first.

    Judging by how much he was using, I don't think it was helping him focus. He confesses he's an addict. Anyone is more fit to be OL coach than an addict.

    Valium is not entirely water soluble therefore it wouldn't absorb through the mucus membrane efficiently enough to take via insufflation. More than likely ketamine. Dissociative properties would allow him to separate the mental sensations from physical

    Too bad we can't lure Hudson Houck out of retirement. . He was our last really good O-Line coach.
