The interviewer really pounds Nolan initially with J.T. O’Sullivan questions. Excuse me if I’m not excited at the prospect of Sullivan, he of the career 13-for-26, 148 yards, one touchdown, two interception stat line, starting for the 49ers.
I love how the interviewer also asks about Shaun Hill’s fatigued throwing shoulder three times in seven questions. Nolan is a disciplinarian to the nth degree, apparently. He doesn’t budge, as he answered firmly that Hill was suffering soley from shoulder fatigue.
Nolan also mentions that Joe Nedney is a leader, which seems comical considering that he’s a kicker. A kicker! Sorry, but I’m not buying Nolan’s emphasis that a kicker can lead. I’ll stick with Pat Willis as the 49ers team leader.
