Default 49ers coaching problems

Don't know if anyone posted this article earlier in the week (came out on Tuesday). Thought it was interesting.

The growing tension between San Francisco 49ers players and the coaching staff bubbled to the surface in the teamís surprisingly lopsided loss at Seattle on Sunday. While coach Mike Singletary took quick action to call a team meeting Sunday night to get the coaches and players back on the same page, the reality is that Singletary is navigating some very choppy waters.

Itís the kind of problem that could spoil not only a season expected to yield a division title, but also Singletaryís career as a head coach.

On Sunday, the 49ers wasted three timeouts and were called for a delay-of-game penalty on three first-half possessions when they got inside the Seattle 10-yard line. By the end of those three possessions, the 49ers had only two field goals (though a touchdown was negated during one series following a booth review). Ultimately, thatís the definition of ineffective football, allowing Seattle to gain momentum on the way to a 31-6 victory.

After the game, quarterback Alex Smith pointed the finger at the coaching staff, saying the plays werenít getting in fast enough. Smith was right and Singletary tried to cover that fact by claiming there were problems with the teamís headsets.

According to multiple sources familiar with the circumstances, the real problem has been more than a year in the making and became more significant following changes the 49ers made within the coaching staff this offseason.

I was just reading about this.

And apparently, it's not just a problem with the OC. The DC calls his defensive plays from memory and sometimes... um... misremembers them.

There were a lot of people expecting good things from Singletary and the Niners this year. Heck, there were a lot of people expecting good things from Singletary and the Niners last year.

From the outside looking in, it looks like Singletary has it all under control. If this is true... wow. Looks can really be deceiving.
