Calling all Harry Potter fans: Ever wished you could hear a “howler” in real life? Well, dreams do come true. Just go to the website of any Bay Area sports talk radio station and listen to some of the phone calls that came in today in the wake of the 49ers’ press conference presenting Jim Tomsula as the new head coach. Yikes. Some of those screeds practically peeled the paint off the walls. Confidence in Jed York and Trent Baalke is, shall we say, at an all time low.
Of course, it may turn out that Tomsula does a fabulous job and all the shrieking is premature and pointless. After all, everybody’s a nobody until they become somebody. But the leash is going to be very, very short.
