The one thing much of the Zone loved to credit for our late season revival was Singletary's ability to make the long over due changes that the Zone thought Nolan was incapable of making.
Will the Sing nut loving continue if our team comes off this bye week like business as usual with no big changes.
Personally, if i can call 95% of our Offensive plays just before the snap like I have been able to do this season, I think we can expect an 8-8 season which is a FAIL of the highest order.
What happens if we come back from the bye week and we find ourselves 3-3?
Sing will drag Shaun Hill, with a backwards 49er shirt on, in front of the media at his next press conference to apologize for his bad play. That isn't called creating accountability, that is called scapegoating.
Scapegoat: a person or group made to bear the blame for others or to suffer in their place.
Remember that Dre went to Coach Singletary in the morning to apologize. Coach Singletary didn't force him to go on at all. Dre made that choice himself.
You are insinuating that Coach forcibly put Dre "up on blasts"...absolutely absurd.
This incident exemplifies what Sing has built which ironically enough you bring up and try to minimize: Accountability. Dre made himself accountable because he deeply respected what Coach is building here at 49er land.
Sad, again, just sad...
On another note, there's a buzz out there in media land that this apology from Dre was long overdue by players who think they are above the team and their mission.
The fans want more of this. I have more respect now for Bly than before. It took guts and character.
