Mike Singletary is one of my favorite people in the NFL but I'm not sure this will work out. I know that's easy to say right now, but I've always seen him more as a defensive coordinator anyway.
Smells of being the sacrificial lamb. Easiest way to try and shake things up I guess.
Why is it that players get "released" and coaches get "fired"?
Because player have their "people" on the payroll. All coaches have is a son that wants to be a coach someday.
Well being head coach means he is responsible for both sides of the ball.
After their game against Nawlins, I thought their offense was just fine... I did not see an OC change coming so soon after that game. I thought the 49ers were favorites to win their division, looks a little panicky to be division champs.
On the network a little while ago they had some comments from Raye...
He said that he was brought in to run the head coaches philosophy. He said that he did not come in demanding to do things a certain way and was moreso carrying out the head coaches direction. He said that he did the best he could with the personnel he had to work with.
Basically, it's not looking good for Singeltary. He's going to have to hire someone that really knows offense because apparently that isn't his strong point. So shame in that...But trying to play a role you can't play will probably lead to trouble...
What could Singletary possibly have been asking him to do? Throw the ball? Crabtree, Davis?
Run it? Gore, Dixon?
Joe Staley, Iupati, DAvis...
What can he not do? If it's the QB, he had a chance to go with CArr, Davis & Troy Smith, he chose Alex....
