Mike Singletary doing his best Rex Ryan impersonation. imo

Im just not so sure about Singletary as a coach. I kinda agree with a lot of whats echoed on these forums. Is he a great motivator? Without question. Is he knowledgeable about the x's and o's? No doubt. But the other aspects, game management, play calling, personal rotation. All that has come into question. And he has a head coach, has to be ready to answer those type of questions.
Not "I dont want to talk about it" or "Lets move on". That poor journalist didnt have a chance. And even when he did move on and asked about New Oleans.."We will stop Drew Brees"(stop) "We will run the ball"(stop).

What the hell is that?

Priorities for the 49ers should be.

1. New coaching staff.
2. New QB.

Well I dont confess to knowing every detail about him. Im sure you being a fan would know a lot more then me. It just seemed liked all of the times he was miked up when he was with the Ravens, he came off has an x's and o's type. But I guess sounding intelligent in sound bytes and making in game adjustment are two different things eh? :-)

He is versed in the "x's and o's" of defense but he knows virtually NOTHING about offense. Which is why it's terrible that his 100% conviction and trust is in an OC that isn't creative enough for the "new" NFL.

I have no issue with Singletary as a HCif... and a big IF, he opens his mind to realize that "3 yards and a cloud of dust" offense doesn't work like it used to. If he allowed himself to trust a progressive OC he'd be fine.

I think people are being way too tough on him too fast. He's turned the Niners around in his short time there and they are better then when he took over, they didn't have a franchise QB then, so what were you expecting?


When he took over a crappy team in 2008 they were 2-5, and finished 5-4. The next season they started out 3-1, which would have been 4-0 if not for the Hail Mary by Brett Favre, and they finished 8-8.


Now all of a sudden people want him to be fired? Lol. Way to be impatient and overreact. Was he supposed to invent a franchise QB in this short of time? He's infused the offensive line full of talent finally, made the most out of Vernon Davis into a pro bowler, has a potential elite #1 WR, and the defense is playing at a level they never were when Nolan was there.


Why does Marvin Lewis get so many chances? He had 1 season over .500 in 7 seasons, and it at least took him 3 full seasons before reaching that, then he had 3 more seasons below it. Yet the Niners should fire Singletary after a season and a half where he went 13-12?


I don't understand it at all. Obviously he needs some Coordinators to help him in areas he's not comfortable in, but I wish people would stop jumping the gun trying to fire people way too fast.

Marvin Lewis stays in power because of Mike Brown. That's it. Mike Singletary deserves more time, but the people that are ticked about him (49ers fans) are most likely people that were never that happy with his hiring in the first place. He basically got the job for free after winning a few meaningless games. Which was a stupid move. We should have at least interviewed other candidates. Especailly since Singeltary isn't an X's and O's coach. Which is fine, but at the same time it's kind of annoying. Especially since we've gone through so many offensive coordinators.

He's basically an extension of the Mike Nolan regime, with an even MORE conservative, defense-first mentality. 49er fans are just sick of that ish at this point, most of us became fans because of great offensive football. The thing that really blows, is that this team seems like it has the talent to be good offensively, but our strategy is the most uncreative crap imaginable (running Gore into the middle of the pile to "establish" the run even though the box is stacked and our Oline can't run-block).

As if USC hasn't gotten away with hundreds of minor or serious violations over the past decade.

Singletary should be a defensive coordinator. That's his proper ceiling, it would seem. Maybe even just LB coach as I don't know that he knows enough about coverages. It seems like former DBs make the best defensive coordinators as they're like the point guards or catchers back there.

I agree that he was pushed into bigger roles because he's Mike Singletary, but I think he's at least an OK head coach. He's surrounded himself with experienced staff so he can focus on what he's good at.

Comparing Singletary to Herm Edwards isn't necessarily a bad thing. For what its worth, I always thought Herm Edwards wasn't a bad head coach. He just wasn't a great one either.

Both motivate players and reach players, but both don't really get Xs and Os that much, and both are horrible game and clock managers.

I always liked Herm. He deserves credit for developing a lot of great secondaries. He's a big part of Flowers and Carr being successful so early in their careers. Herm is amazing wth young players. Great practice/development/preparation coach. He just wasn't a great game day coach.

I'd love to see Herm coach a college team. He'd be like Pete Carroll on steroids (or Pete Carroll without his players being on steroids anyway). He's perfect for the college game and the guy is loaded with integrity, which would be a huge selling point for a lot of schools.

Everyone thought having Raye as OC was a major milestone b/c it was the 1st time in 8 freaking yrs. the 9ers had the same OC for 2 continuous yrs. Theywere primed to do great things this season but then the wheels came off in Seattle, Smith couldn't get the plays relayed in, possible headset problems, some thing Singletary vetoed several plays that came in from Raye in the presbox, wtf is he doing in the pressbox anyway? most teams want their OC on the sidelines now.

Smith's passes are behind the receivers or sailing way too high, the red zone playcalling is abominable, & the meltdown ensued.

31 unanswered points, damn!

There's been hell to pay in SF this wk. Now Singletary is losing it with the media & the search for scapegoats is diverting attn. with a scavenger hunt looking for media leaking "rats." That's almost always a formula that's career-limiting.

If there's another offensive meltdown happens vs. The NFL champion Saints I think somebody is going to get fired, probably Raye.

I truly believe that many, if not most 49ers fans (especially those in their 20's) are spoiled. They tend to assume that what happened in the 80's and half of the 90's to be "the norm." It was a blessing to have an offensive GENIUS in Bill Walsh as head coach. It was a blessing to have back-to-back HOF QBs in Montana and Young. It was a blessing to have 2 of the best WRs in NFL history in Rice and Owens. It was a blessing to have arguably the best DB in the history of the NFL in Lott. It was a blessing to have one of the best owners in the history of professional sports in DeBartolo. I could go on and on.

As 49ers fans we need to stop taking the blessings of the past for granted. The team is improving. The 2003-2005 49ers were some of the worst rosters from top-to-bottom in recent history. It was one game, last weekend. Alot can change. Let's just hope that it does, and it does for the better.

Until they realize he's black. Then they won't want to have anything to do with him. College football hasn't figured out yet that black coaches can be very successful.

Singletary is the worst coach in the NFL, maybe the worst head coach the league has seen in years.

He's a homeless man's Herm Edwards, good for nothing outside of a press conference.

That video was hilariously awkward. Looks like a potential Coors Light ad right here.

As for Singletary's demeanor, he clearly over-reacted. You'd think he would have cooled off by now, removing O'Donnel seems unnecessary. This would all be forgiven if Singletary was any good as a HC though, which he seems to prove each week that he clearly isn't.
