49ers Coach Nolan's Press Conference Notes

Mike Nolan had his weekly press conference with the media this afternoon. Here are some of his tidbits and quotes. It appeared that he got a haircut but maybe he is just losing more of his hair after each loss.

  • Nolan said that he is angry that they lost the game.
  • Said that Patrick Willis, Nate Clements,Marques Douglas, and Michael Lewis played good games
  • "Trent Dilfer puts his heart and soul into everything he does and I admire it"
  • Also said that Dilfer gives them a chance to win in every game
  • The team has an opportunity to bounce back and win against the Vikings
  • He said it is unfair to compare Aaron Rogers and Alex Smith because the Packers are hot and have confidence and momentum.
  • He wished that the defense would be able to get off the field on 3rd downs against Carolina
  • Expressed that the defense and special teams are the strengths of the team
  • Did not go for it on 4th and 2 at the Carolina 42 in the third quarter because it was a long two yards and they had no momentum.
  • "Carolina is a very good football team"
  • Arnaz Battle is questionable for the Vikings game
  • His whole team is as angry as he is about the losses
