The San Francisco 49ers were losing badly through 30 minutes of play on Sunday against the Seahawks. And interim coach Mike Singletary pulled no punches during his first halftime speech -- but he did pull down his pants.

So he gave a speech with his pants around his ankles. So what? I'm sick of this PC world. If a man can't coach his team half-naked, well, then I don't want to live. What I'm wondering though, is if anyone else joined in to promote team unity.

to show just how thorough john clayton is:
Singletary was wearing boxers.

I like Singletary, but I really have to wonder if his old-school approach to coaching is going to mesh with the attitudes of today's players. Most of these kids only know his HoF career from highlight reels, if at all. And I doubt his past glory makes much of an impression on the me-first mentality of the younger generation. JMO

Would you play for him?

What if he took his pants off? Would you play for him then?

I think if he can somehow get them to win/make players better they'll be all in...

If not, then his coaching style will be the first thing players complain about...

I like it, (not the pants around the ankles thing), but the hardnosed attitude.

The 49'ers are going to be a tough football team.

What a weird thing to do...

On the one hand he wants to be the next Lombardi but on the other he wants to act like a frat boy.

I GUESS he was trying to lighten the atmosphere but geez this sounds so silly.

ESVN is reporting that Vince Young is rumored to have requested a trade to the 49ers.

:spit: That made laugh.

As for Singletary, when he benched the QB and made the TE go to showers, I liked it. When he talked to the press after the game, I liked it. When I found out later that he had dropped his pants during his half-time speech, I didn't like it. That isn't old-school. That's just strange. That's the kind of crap you'd expect to see from Bobby Knight, not Mike Ditka.

Bobby Knight would probably beat a few of his players with his pants. :thinking:

I thought that the line "whoops, I forgot my pants" was either a bad pick up line or something for a porno.
