Singletary always thinks he's smart for playing it safe.

Let's cut Rossum and put in the safe pick, Delanie Walker. Result: key fumble against Atlanta.

Let's try Battle as the punt returner. He's older than Spurlock, so he probably is safer and better. We just want a guy to not make mistakes. Result: key fumble against Houston.

Let's try Brandon Jones. Result: fields a punt from the 5-yard line.

Let's try Clements. Result: probably done for the year.

Ridiculous. I'm losing respect for Singletary and Raye. The bottom line is Singletary isn't a creative HC. His philosophy is to pound the ball like cavemen. Now that we realize we can't, he changes direction and says he just wants to win.

He said Hill gives us the best chance to win. The decision to start Hill over Smith probably cost us a game or two. Now he's changing his mind saying that Alex gives us the best chance to win. OK, and if Smith gets hurt...let me guess...Nate Davis gives us the best chance to win?

He said that everyone should be part of the team. Nobody is bigger than the team. Then a rookie comes along who misses all of training camp and gets the starting job. Interesting.

I'm starting to feel that Singletary is becoming another Nolan and losing the players' respect. You can't go out and say something, and then act the opposite of what you're saying.

I feel that Singletary, along with Raye, are beginning to lose the team because the players aren't stupid. They see what's going on. Alex can flat out play. This team has weapons. The only thing holding them back is the coaches. Guys like Brandon Jones and Jason Hill...to come in, work hard, and see their jobs taken away by someone who's 36 years old and a 22-year-old rookie who missed all of training camp...pretty ridiculous.

How about Justin Smith? How do you think he feels seeing Clements go down because Rossum was cut and Clements had to take over punt return duties?

How about Michael Spurlock? He's probably wondering what the hell he's still doing on the roster.

How about Frank Gore? Delanie Walker? How does Ray McDonald feel about the offense going three-and-out consistently because of the pathetic play calling, when he's out there busting his ass every play dealing with 300-pound men?

I'm seeing a lot of ridiculousness from the coaching staff thus far, and IMO, this team SHOULD be at least 5-2, if it wasn't for the EPIC FAIL that is the 49ers coaching staff at the moment. I won't give up. I still have hope, but things MUST change, and change quickly.

I agree with everything you said. It is absolutely unbelieveable that Jimmy Raye and Singletary do not realize that our run offense is not good. Take away Gore's three big runs, and it is absolute garbage. Pounding the rock only works when your team is capable of running the ball
What drives me the crazest is that the culture of denial that "Everything's great--don't worry!" Nolan brought with him is continuing with Coach Sing. Ego seems to be more important than accountability and just getting things RIGHT. Dumping Rossum with no answer for how to adequately fill his role (they're called specialists for a reason, btw) was a HUGE mistake that has cost us games and-now-cost us our $80 mil CB. To put Clements in that role to begin with was absurd--you might as well put Alex Smith or Willis back there. I have been a supporter of Coach Sing's this year, but I hate when fans are treated like children by coaches and they refuse to acknowledge a mistake just so they can avoid blame and put a spin on their own poor performance. I will never assume that I know better than an NFL coach, but sometimes...SOMETIMES.....it really feels like I do---anyone else feel that way?
i knew this was gonna bite us in the ass big time the moment they benched him for one bad game. horrible move by the staff. someone should be slapped.
Your right. Let's quit the season NOW!

Lol--no one is saying that--just annoyed/frustrated that our coaching staff makes what seem to be elemental mistakes that affect our ability to win. I expect better, but perhaps you don't and that is your prerogative. After 33 years as a fan of this team (and I watch every game start to finish every year--win or lose) I have seen mostly good and some bad. Coaches making really stupid mistakes and preferring to protect their image over improving their team makes me mad. Don't get me wrong--for the most part I am a fan of Coach Singletary's--but sticking your head in the ground and pretending he doesn't make mistakes does nothing but serve to anaesthetize you to the net result: injured star CBs, fumbled balls and easy TDs for opposing teams, all of which could have been avoided.
