I really wonder what he said to the D when he gathered them around. It looked at one point like he was gesturing to the O on the bench like," yeah, these guys have sucked but you guys have done great." His influence is clearly evident on the entire team: Vernon has calmed down, the D swarms, etc. I just hope his commitment to the run doesn't bury us in the end, as it almost did today.
Regardless, great job by Sing today. That TO was the key to the game. Improvement over Nolan is immense.
was when Coach Sing called timeout and huddled up with the defense. The D had just been driven on and had given up a TD to tie the game while the Cards were driving again. Sing called the timeout. The D looked as if it settled down and held the Cards to a FG. Then the niners went on their game winning drive. I really think Coach calling that timeout did wonders for momentum.
Its really something you dont see in the NFL anymore where the HC pulls the defense (or offense if its the case) all together aside to talk to them. Singletary is really starting to show some poise as a Head Coach and I am thrilled to have him with the 49ers.
