Originally posted by CorvaNinerFan: He does deserve quite a bit of credit for rebuilding this team from the dregs he inherited. Singletary has acknowledged that a number of times. Agree, he's not nearly as effective as a head coach as a defensive coordinator. He's doing a bang-up job in Denver...considering hardly anyone expected much from their defense this year. He's a quality coach...just not a head coach. He could make a good GM someday, too.
I suspect he will emerge somewhere as a head coach again. Especially if he keeps the Denver defense going at its current pace. Personally IMO the man should be a d-coordinator or a GM.
He tore down what Donahue left behind when he got here. He help rebuild this team but he wasn't the only one. Scot Mc helps too. He f@#k up as a coach here, but learned from it and it showed in Denver.
I'm sure he must of pitch his hybrid 3-4/4-3 in San Fran when he interviewed for the Denver job ... right Sometime a person gets better after they fall on their ass and failed. And be better for it. Doesn't mean he was good for or with us.
You're exactly right! His coaching style and in game management ensured we had top 10 picks each year he was here and his commitment to player development allowed emerging players like Haralson, Lawson and David Baas to stay healthy by sitting on the bench. And let's not forget about his excellent cap managemnet skills.... nothing says value like the JJ signing, or other FA acquisitions like TBC. Let's not forget that vaunted Mike Nolan passrush we've had in the past few years......
