SportsFilter: The Monday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Tomsula has been run off the claim by the Niners after just one year and will have to pan for gold elsewhere.

Harbaugh pipes in, of course.

Oh, and Chip wants the job.

If they sign Kelly, they won't have to worry about trying to get some sort of value for Kaepernick. Chip will want that guy. Gabbert would have to take his now proven ability to move an offense down the field a bit to someone else's system.

(I was careful to say "sign" Kelly, not "land" him. Ain't about "land" with the Pooh Bear any more. He's one and done in the coaching coup department.)

49ers could have kept Harbaugh and in the process continued to field a competitive team and avoided a pile of defections and retirements of key talent.

From the greater Buffalo area, a new twist on the old proverb:

Teach a man to cook

and he will be able to

feast until sundown

The Black Monday tally so far:

Chip Kelly

Mike Pettine & Ray Farmer

Jim Tomsula

Tom Coughlin

Ruston Webster

One was last week, three last night. Seems a little tame this year so far, in my opinion.
