He blamed the problem on youth, but this is the oldest team in the NFL
And that window of opportunity centered on Arians, Palmer and Fitzgerald.
Arians just turned 65. He’s had health problems, but said when the season started he was fully recovered and raring to go. When a local television station reported this week he would not be back as coach next season, Arians chose to tweet out a denial.
Hearing reports I’m retiring, the tweet said. News to me. Nothing could be further from truth & 100% focused on getting back on track at SF!
If he is back, it could be to rebuild.
Palmer is eligible to return to the team three days before his 38th birthday. He’s taken brutal hits behind an offensive line riddled by injuries and subpar performances.
Although he was having a solid season, and his passing numbers are good, it’s hard to see him sticking around much longer to take that abuse, particularly after this latest injury.
Police officers across the country have felt unfairly disparaged by what took place and what is taking place in some stadiums, Kelly said. We’re upset. Some are angry; some are offended. I know that’s true for many San Jose cops, but upset feelings do not improve conditions for those of us who respond to calls for service. To the contrary, we cannot dwell on what upsets us.
Our responsibility to our communities and to our fellow officers is too great to sacrifice because of hurt feelings. We need to move the ball forward. That’s why we appreciate Mr. York and the 49ers organization recognizing the role they can play in creating a more understanding and safer America. We appreciate them for stepping forward to work directly with frontline police officers on making our communities safer and working to bring mutual respect to police and community relations. We know it’s not easy being first.
Both York and the other police representatives made a point to emphasize that they are not advocating against the Second Amendment but that their effort to ban bump stocks and other similar devices is one grounded in basic logic.
