1. Mike Nolan, former head coach, 49ers. Fired after three-plus seasons.

2. George Warhop, former OL coach, 49ers. Nolan added Chris Foerster to assist Warhop with the line after last season. General manager Scot McCloughan fired Warhop after Nolan's dismissal, putting Foerster in charge of the line.

3. J.T. O'Sullivan, QB, 49ers. Two interception and a lost fumble against the Giants give him 12 turnovers in the last four games.

4. Mike Martz, offensive coordinator, 49ers. The 49ers passed over him when looking to replace Nolan.

5. Greg Manusky, defensive coordinator, 49ers. The 49ers passed over Manusky as well.

6. Seneca Wallace, QB, Seahawks. Matt Hasselbeck's backup was unable to rescue a passing game that appears beyond saving.

7. Chris Spencer, C, Seahawks. A premature snap wasn't his only problem. Spencer's blocking wasn't up to expectations for a first-round pick.

8. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers. Eleven yards on 11 carries against the Giants.

9. Kelly Jennings, CB, Seahawks. He had no chance on that early deep ball against the Bucs. Seattle wanted a call for offensive interference, but officials disagreed.

10. Lofa Tatupu, MLB, Seahawks. A concussion knocked him from the game against the Bucs. Like most of the Seahawks, Tatupu hasn't played to expectations.
