Nolan's problem wasnt getting talent (Gore, Davis, Lawson, Willis, and yes even Smith) it was developing talent especially in guys like Smith and Davis. Davis seems to be flourishing now but Alex is probably permanently damaged goods (at least in SF).
And I agree that ultimately I think Alex-gate was the beginning of the end. People really saw the "real" Mike Nolan after that. He was exposed as the cunning little prick that he is.
Maybe, just maybe, Smith and Davis and anyone else you want to give Singletary credit for developing are finally just maturing and learning the pro game. The amount of cock love for Sing is so laughable.
When Sing calls players out (O-Line)its cool; but, when it was Nolan, it is throwing a player under the bus. Is there really a difference? No.
Nolan's D in Denver is 4-0 so the comments from the Zone about his inability to coach grown men makes us all look so stupid.
We had a string (7 years) of s**t luck starting with Walsh's suggestion to hire f**k face Donahue. Nolan righted the ship, rebuilt the team from the bottom up and put us in this position to win the West.
Thanks Mike, and the best of luck to you.
You will always be welcome in my San Francisco, I know the truth
