Can anyone honestly say that we have upgraded since last year? I mean what was done this off season to fix the pass rush?
"Sing, sing, sing...." "motivate, motivate, motivate......" "fire, fire, fire..." Get the hell outta here with all that noise.
Mike Singletary is not a miracle worker!
You know something, belief can work miracles...I have seen it for myself. When Joe believed that Coach Walsh was speakin' the truth, do you think that those precision drives came from doubt?
You may not believe Krizay, but many do and that, in itself, must be respected.
Motivation is simply a way to touch the soul to work that much harder...well, what the hell is wrong with that in the first place? Second, Singletary knows first hand what it takes to be a champion from anyone on that field. I trust he knows what he's doing.
Dang it, why in the world would anyone want to demean, ridicule, or undermine an established champion who only wants to share his experience to make us what we once were: CHAMPIONS.
I just don't get it...
On simply the issue of the pass-rush...nothing has changed except who is playing the SAM and WILL roles. One thing has changed and that is Manny Lawson becoming the other edge rusher instead of TBC or Green. That is it. I thought that was clearly said.
Is Manny it? We will see whether you like it or not. If you think Manny is there to "fix" the pass rush, then you will be happy. If not, oh well...there is next year's DE/OLB rich draft.
IMO, please support your team and root for Manny. He is, after all, our solution to the pass rush for now.
Still, why do people just demonstrate a negative, sarcastic view point toward a man who only knows how to win and will do everything to get there? Why?
For me, who gives a rat's azz...seriously? Our opinions don't matter in the bigger scheme of things. Instead, our support does.
That is what I focus on.
If by saying Sing isn't a miracle worker is demeaning or ridiculing him. Then I guess i'm guilty. You guys are expecting him to turn water into to wine just because of the way he talks.
Dude, you weren't being saracastic in your post above? You were ridiculing, mocking, making fun of the motivational aspect in Singletary's coaching?
And no, we are not subscribing to your notion of Singletary as a miracle worker. I am saying that you, as well as others here, are exaggerating and dramatizing the impact of how Singletary is taking care of business with motivational speaking which is one of his vehicles for success.
Singletary's success will be based on his compilation of all his football skills especially at the NFL level. Motivation is but one of them and a very important one at that.
Maybe others are just hanging their hat on that one trait of Singletary's. Me? I believe that most underestimate what Singletary can do. I believe that he can succeed with this where Nolan failed.
True and i agree with what you are saying. My thing is a speech isn't gonna make a player that just doesn't have the talent all of the sudden have the talent. It might light a fire under a guys ass who has been lazy and not giving it his all. but a fiery speech isn't gonna make Manny a better pass rusher. Mike pushing him harder and harder in practice and Manny pushing himself and improving pass rush moves is what will make him better. I do believe the players will respect and work harder for singletary than they did for Nolan and that will be partly come from how he talks and commands there attention. But at the end of the day I just don't see the actual talent on this defense to expect a much improved pass rush. If it does I would call that an even more severe damage to Nolan's tenure and more props to sing and Manusky for solving that problem.
