They were 19th in defense out of 28 teams in 1984... and it came on the heels of the Killer B’s who were a #1 ranked defense at one point...that defense was so bad that offense had to abandon the running game.... which put Marino in a tough situation against a truly great Niner team.... which was 18-1 that year.What still baffles me when I think about it is how he had no patience for Chuck Studley - dismissing him after the horrific showing in the SB vs SF. I think he got just one season before being canned. Then Olivadatti basically runs the same defense that Studley did and lasts 10 years. I’ll never understand it.
No shocker Studley got canned... Olivadotti staying was a shocker.
