  1. He looks like a younger Ron Howard in this photo. Not Opey young or Happy Days young, but Arrested Development (narrator) younger Ron Howard.

  2. Unfortunately, you can’t keep a good coordinator forever. I hope McDermott stays in Carolina but best of luck to him if he lands a head job.

  3. Can you please make a notation if the person being spoken about qualifies as a Rooney Rule candidate, meaning he has no chance. Thanx in advance.

  4. Shouldn’t the GM be involved with the hiring of the head coach? Oh wait, this is Jed York’s 49ers we’re talking about here. Nevermind!
