Question: After the punishing loss to the Falcons, the sky has fallen for many 49ers fans. As such, many fans have been calling for Hill's benching, Raye's firing, and Singletary's resignation. With the recent roster moves and Singletary's insistence that Crabtree play against the Texans, do you think the sky has fallen for the coaching staff as well?
Answer: Dan Brown: Ah, this is a variation of your previous question but I realized I didn't answer the coaching part of it: I think Jimmy Raye will be really under fire, considering the 30th ranked passing game is really, really awful. I think you might start hearing QB coach Mike Johnson mentioned as the heir apparent. That said, I think Jimmy is just doing what his boss tells him. Singletary WANTS a conservative, run-first team so he shouldn't escape blame, either, if things don't pick up.
Finally someone actually adressed this issue. We gotta put some of the blame on Sing too, and not always on Raye. In most of the games, the commentators even talk about Sing even saying, we have no plan B, we have to run the ball. But people still point the finger at Raye. I hope even tho some will still b***h about the man, they do understand that he only does and follows the gameplan that Sing wants. Sing said himself, he trusts Manusky and the defense, so he doesnt mess with them much. But with the offense, i bet he has more say than portrayed.
Finally lets' say as OC :
hostler = raye < martz = turner (or so)
nothing personal against raye, he just svcks :
from 30th to 16th to 30th yeah i can see the evolution (there's no debate about raye calling the offense sing wants and if it is do not forget then that he's worse at it than martz last year. Period.)
oops i forgot : we're n°1 ! in three and outs ...
