Hey Jsaniner: you're absolutely correct. They're the same troll.
Well, thanks for mentioning me, but to be accurate, I never said they were the same person and I don't believe they are. As for being trolls, who knows, but I doubt it.
What they do have in common is the belief Singletary is just an extension of Nolan, which I strongly disagree with. Singletary has shown the willingness to change tactics on offense and defense and I think the team will respond to his more forceful and demanding personality. They say because he coached under Nolan he is just a clone, but that does not necessarily follow. Each coach has his own way of doing things that are not revealed until he assumes control.
The test will come this season. Singfan is on record as saying he expects a 4-12 season and 7-9 would be a miracle. I would like to go on record by predicting 10-6. The dispute will be settled on the field of battle, on the turf of Candlestick and eight other fields across America, as it should be.
I consider a 10-6 record the bare minimum that MS has to accomplish for me to consider stating that I was wrong about him. After all, if he's the motivational wizard you supporters claim he is and since he managed to get a 7-9 record in 9 games as interim HC, then 3 more wins as full-time HC over an entire season is a very reasonable expectation. Anything less and I'll call Holmgren (or Shanny) myself. Get the contract ready, Jed!!
PS: Amazing that I've been a member of this forum FAAAARR longer than any of you yet I'm routinely called a "troll." Some nerve.
So at 10-6 you'd merely "consider" stating you were wrong about Singletary? Sounds about right.
At any rate, regardless of what fans are screaming for, I think he's more than safe at anything north of 7-9.
This is what we have come to embrace. With all the available coaches out there, we think 7-9 is perfectly acceptable and worth another year.
And so, if we go 7-9 this year fire Singletary and bring a big name retread coach like Shanahan, and he goes 7-9 in his first full season, do we fire him? Gimme a break, if you think any fan or anyone in the organization is embracing mediocrity, please put down the crack pipe.
This is why they never, ever, should have given Sing 4yrs., and 10 million. Who in the hell thought that was appropriate? Two years and a club option for a third gives you a chance to get the hell out after one year when Sing proves he is nothing more than an interim. If the hiring wasn't ridiculous enough, the contract was even more ridiculous. Just another gift from Paraag.
Ultimately though, this is on Scot and his insecure self. He didn't want to bring in a a guy that would be a threat to him. Sing made perfect sense because he was a gift from the PR Gods and wouldn't be a threat to anybody but under achieving tight ends. Scot couldn't stand up to another big ego. He was a lip quivering water boy for Nolan. Imagine what he would be if a guy like Shanahan was around?
We have to begin fixing the franchise. It starts by showing Sing and McCloughan the door right now. There is no need to wait. Just another year wasted if we don't. Trust me, this move will save the 1000's of, " Keep Sing, they may be losers but they were tough" threads that will undoubtedly be on here by the end of December.
Could you possibly be more ridiculous than that last paragraph?I mean come on now,that is just dumb as dirt.You have absolutely no way of knowing if Singletary is gonna be a good coach or not until he coaches a season.Your idea to try and replace him now is about as stupid of an idea as I have ever seen posted on these boards,even on top of the idea of using our top pick to return kicks or moving VD to OLB or LT.We all get it by now,you do not like the Singletary hire,but to think we could replace him at this point in the off season is about the most mentally challenged idea ever posted here by you.It shows to all that your tenuous grip on reality is slipping.Please think before you post so you do not embarrass yourself (or other niner fans)like this anymore...do it for us...but mostly do it for yourself.
