I do have a big problem with PEP RALLY TIMEOUTS. That should be ZERO. PEP RALLY's are for practice. Game timeouts are to stop the clock at the end of half or end of game or for challenges.
Yelling at other teams players is well below HC material.
It's not like we are wasting them like Mike Martz. I agree with what you are saying but both times they where needed. Basically Singletary sees us losing momentum and falling apart and he tried to stop it. Nothing wrong with using them to try to turn around the game.
The timeouts WERE NOT NEEDED! A complete waste. Timeouts are for:
~ End of half.
~ End of game.
That is it period. If a HC doesn't know that he shouldn't be HC.
at this post..... Timeouts maybe for those three things, but they have been used for various reason through out football history.... I LOVE THE WAY SINGLETARY chooses to use ours.....
you my look at it as a Pep talk.... I look at it as situations were our defense looked tired and were giving up considerable yardage......so a timeout to rest them and at the same time rest them mentally for a short period of time, while reminding them what the situation is and what to look out for....is very necessary, I don't expect our Defense to play Perfect all the time.
like I have said before Atlanta's coach Smith made a wonderful decision to call for a playaction and a deep pass after that timeout..... he knew that the 9er defense wanted to make a play bad for each other and coach....and were most likely going to be aggressive.......so I think everyone on Defense learned from that play....in the future, yes SD we are still going to use those types of time outs, in the future I'm sure they will look out for a misdirection play after those types of time outs.....
When did Bill Walsh ever use timeouts like use? When did Jimmy Johnson ever use timeouts like this?
If he wants to be the motivational PEP RALLY guy mabye he can be our MASCOT instead of our HC. I'm calling rediculous when I see it. It's absurd they way he uses timeouts and he WILL COST US GAMES!
I must laugh at the way that you incite the board. You have always been negative but your original and repeated use of "PEP RALLY" as the definitive adjective for the coach's timeout's just shows how little you really know. Wait, it actually perfectly captures your bias against Sing, the Yorks, the 49'ers, and whomever.
Because you describe it as a "PEP RALLY" timeout, that's what it is? That says to me that you have never played football (likely any TEAM sport for that matter) as you clearly do not get it. The two examples cited in this thread have yielded mixed; one good an one bad result...but you keep calling it a PEP RALLY timeout.
Has anyone ever said to you "Hey, wait a second and think about what you are doing (or about to do, or where you are or whatever)?. Maybe in your case not, because you seem to be fairly close to all-knowing and omniscient.
Any good leader will keep his/her fingers on the pulse of the team being led and occasionally ask for a quick check on status, focus, whatever, to insure that the TEAM is focused on the immediate task at hand.
Does it always work? Not always, but from experience, it helps. Maybe you ought to check your 'focus' (or have a PEP RALLY with yourself), see if your TEAM (of one or two, I am sure) can maintain their focus to accomplish the task at hand, whatever TF yours is.
PS - my apologies to other posters in this thread for quoting something on the 2nd page...I am too tired to read all of the drivel to get to the end...
Another good post from a new guy. There is hope for the future of Niner Talk.
