singletary MAKING BIG MISTAKES.

Singletary:

Lack of preperation - Where were the X's and O's preperation for the Atlanta game? They got their butt kicked all over the field and didn't appear ready or well coached.

Taking timeouts to give worthless PEP RALLY's... Can you picture Bill Walsh doing this? That PEP RALLY cost a challenge later in the game which was a momentum changer and a game changer if it was a close game. Luckily we got blown out like we often do.

Chilo a starter and rotating Guards... Where is the continuity to the offensive line? Find a starter and stick with it. If you don't know who your starters are you aren't a real good coach.

Elevating DIVA (Crabtree) to a starter after missing all of preseason, all the games and training camp. Obviously he is not ready. He barely knows the plays at this point. And what does it do for the locker room? He's losing his guys. Guys are already complaining. Tree hasn't earned anything yet.

Yelling at opposing teams players. How is this HC worthy? A HC is supposed to be well above this level.

IMO Singletary is a highly emotional guy who wants to win but doesn't control his emotions well enough to be a steady head coach. Mike Nolan was better with game management / time management by far. I don't believe we can win with Singletary in the present state. He needs to tone it down a little and be a coach instead of an inspirational leader and motivational speaker.

Discuss Singletary's good and bad points thus far.

SD, I know you often rant and rave, but you got way too carried away here. The bolded statement is completely not credible.

You are a tool.
I think many were emotionally scarred by the Atlanta loss and feel a need to over-analyze . . .

Yeah, we got spanked by ATL and the Coach accepted much of the blame . . . BIG MISTAKE? . . . no . . . bad game

Let's see . . . so far Singletary has called a grand total of TWO of these so called PEP RALLY timeouts. One resulted in a defensive stop and one did not. This is hardly an epidemic. . . . . BIG MISTAKE? . . .


Chilo a starter and rotating Guards... Where is the continuity to the offensive line? Find a starter and stick with it. If you don't know who your starters are you aren't a real good coach.

In case you've forgotten, Bobb McKittrick used to rotate O-Lineman. It's got nothing to do with how good or bad Singletary is as a coach.

This isn't Pop Warner . . . the best players should be on the field . . . and how many practices have you watched to determine this is yet another BIG MISTAKE . .

Bad idea yes . . . BIG MISTAKE? Not hardly

Now you've lost it . . . Mike Nolan was better with game and time management . . . . BY FAR??? I guess this is the same point as the PEP RALLY timeouts, only re-packaged as a seperate point . . . as far as game management, I believe he's undefeated in coaches challenges thus far . . . 2-0 or 3-0. You know I can't recall a single successful challenge by Nolan

Of course he's not perfect, but holy christ, pretty much all of the issues you choose to make resulted from one stinker of a game.

How in God's name was he not a better TIMEOUT MANAGER than MR. MOTIVATIONAL HALFTIME SPEECH? I didn't see him taking lots and lots of PEP RALLY TIMEOUTS to motivate a team that should already be motivated that later cost us on a possible challenge. Challenges are important and something that should be precious to a HC. But not to Mr DROPPED PANTS.

He gets away with so much on the WZ it's unreal. He's no answer just a motivational speaker. Soon the real results are going to crumble and you all will see the truth.

You put the best people on the field I don't care about chemistry if you have a weak point. That's like saying put Barry Sims at left tackle and sit Staley because they have better chemistry omg SHUT er up rookie. You obviously do not understand football and you will see this Sunday that our team will have a gameplan and we will play a great football game and don't be suprised if Crabtree gets in the endzone, I sure won't.

p.s. I hope Singletary uses all his timeouts in the first drive and points at the screen and says hey webzone fans, EAT IT!

There is NO WAY that Crabtree knows the amount of playbook that a starter should. 2 mistakes from a 2nd year player doesn't negate the fact that Crabtree does not, and can not know the plabook. PERIOD!

Singletary has stated from day one that players will EARN their playing time.....how exactly has Crabtree done that? By catching some passes from Alex Smith during the bye? I don't think so. So now EVERY player that was buying into that BS line now see's that EARNING your play time is not the case. That all the rah rah Singeltary has been blowing up their rears is just that, smoke being blown up their rears.

Singletary better hope the team doesn't decide to hold HIM accountable for his decisions the way he does them, or he may have some difficult questions to answer.


Think about things from a different POV for just a moment

Do you think the Yorks want to see their new big shot multi-million dollar toy EARNING his time? Doubt it. Football is a business first and foremost and the Yorks are business people. I'm sure there was considerable pressure on the coaching staff over the bye week to make sure Crabtree was in position to be on the field as early and a much as possible.

While I'm not ruling out the possibility that Singletary didn't make this discussion on his own, it doesn't exactly seem like his MO. Remember Sing doesn't have the same freedom that Nolan had during his first 3 years.

He's pretty much calling the shots on personnel and who gets playing time though.

Which is why everyone should stop jumping to conclusions on Crabtree starting. All starting means is that you line up during the initial series of the game. I've watched several interviews with Sing so far this week where he's been quoted saying that Josh will probably get more plays that Crabtree. I think the whole Crabtree starting thing is more of a publicity stunt then an actual major move. We will just have to wait and see.

Here's a link basically saying what I was getting at
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/rumors/post/San-Francisco-49ers-rsquo-Morgan-getting-more-p?urn=nfl,197547

Try to minimize the importance of being labled "starter" all you want, however THATS what these players strive to be. Regardless of playing time, being labled as "starter" means something to these players. GOOD players have left teams and gone on to others because of who is labled as starter and who is not, regardless of explained or predicted playing time.

Don't say it doesn't matter who starts, cause it does.

Well the players seem to be singing a different tune. Nobody challenged the point I made about football being a business first. Check your hurt feelings at to door.
San Diego is right on the TO's. Does anyone else realize that blowing those timeouts officially put the game away. If we had a timeout we could have challenged Delanie's non fumble. At that time the score was 21-10 instead Atlanta gets the ball deep in our territory scores a TD and it's a ball game.

Granted this is the 1st time that has happened so I'm giving Singletary a pass, but you can't treat timeouts like Mike Martz use to. If you blow all three of them you can't challenge criticial plays in the game, and that's exactly what happened to us.

Actually I believe the first post says 4:12 AM. And yes this excuse for a team has been keeping me up at night.
In sports, a time-out refers to a stoppage in the match for a short amount of time. This allows for the coaches of either team to communicate with the team, e.g. to determine strategy or inspire morale. Time-outs are usually called by coaches or players, although for some sports, TV timeouts are called to allow media to air commercial breaks. Teams usually call timeouts at strategically important points in the match, or to avoid the team being called for a delay of game-type violation.

Thanks now shut up and go to bed.

I'm not that tired yet....

And no it's a terrible way to use timeouts. Unheard of at the NFL level. A HIGH SCHOOL PEP RALLY TIMEOUT...

what about the timeout the team had to use cuz glen coffee didnt know the play that was called, if the team didnt have to waste that timeout the niners would have had a timoeut to challenge Delanie fumble.
I will try to watch as many games as I can this weekend and I will show you that ALL coaches you time outs when the team needs a rest of a swift kick in the head? While you are at it why don't you go watch football and learn how it is played since you obviously don't know very much.

SO MARSHALL ISNT A DIVA? DIDN'T HE START FOR THE BRONCOS?
I'd like to defend the coach with a winning record if I may. Not saying he's great or anything like that, because that is far premature, but as of now, he's winning games....as is Hill btw.

Yeh, it's amazing. By this standard McDaniels is one of maybe 3 good coaches in NFL history. Walsh went 2-14 (if I'm not mistaking?) his first year...Should have fired him on the spot!

They got out coached badly, but a very very good coach coming off of a bye week. It's hard to beat good coaches after a bye, it really is. But to say he hasn't been prepared or doesn't know X's and O's based on one game is highly overreactive. His preparation for AZ (this year and last) was very good. The team was consistently able to get to Warner, keep the game at their own pace, and use the run (which wasn't working!) to set up the pass when it mattered. AZ is a more talented team across the board, and Singletary out coached them. The Seattle game wasn't as much coaching as Singletary's physical stamp. The Viking's game was phenomenally coached. With Gore coming out on the first run of the game, Staley getting blown up for an almost fumble of the first snap of the game, and Favre scoring very early on, this looked to be a blow out. The staff made absolutely great adjustments at the half and almost beat a very very good team at home. Forget St. Luis, they're not an NFL team and very hard to gauge. Very bad coaching job in ATL, granted. But otherwise a very solid performance.

Would Walsh do that? No. He's not Walsh. But maybe Parcells would. Maybe Cower would. Maybe Didka would. Maybe Tomlin would. Some guys coach one way, some guys coach another way. In hindsight those timeouts were badly used, but I do understand that he has a different style about him than Walsh. He's not going to manage the game as well as Walsh, but he may get the most out of his players in his own way. Plus, lets not compare the guy to Walsh. There is one, MAYBE MAYBE MAYBE 2 coaches in the league who can even start to be compared to Bill Walsh. The recently hired Mike Singletary is clearly not one of them. And what do you mean by getting blow our like we "often" do? Sing got blown out twice as I recall. ATL this past game, and Seattle, in his very first game on a short week. I think it's fair to give him a pass given all the circumstances on that one.
Chilo a starter and rotating Guards... Where is the continuity to the offensive line? Find a starter and stick with it. If you don't know who your starters are you aren't a real good coach.
I'm sorry, but to me this comment makes NO sense. How do you establish who your starters are if you don't monitor them in games? Walsh changed starters all the time while establishing who the better players are. It's not ideal, but in your first year as a coach you need to establish who is the best 11 on the field, and trial and error are the ways to do that. The Colts have done this with their O-line, specifically with Ugough. I'm not even defending Sing on this one, just don't agree with the logic at all.

Before using statements like "obviously" "not ready" lets see him play. If he comes in, runs the wrong routes, causes INTs or 3 and outs, misses blocks, etc etc etc, then I will agree. But lets see the kid play first. Willis was promoted as starter over the vet Derrick Smith instantly, but hey, that wasn't too bad. I agree, he missed training camp, etc, kind of odd that he's starting, but I think its fair to see him play first. What if he is a Willis like talent? How do you keep a guy like that off the field? And please don't make comments like "he's loosing his guys." There is no evidence for this. People said the same thing when he banished Vernon to the showers in the Seattle game. That was clearly overblown. Brandon Jones is upset that he's not getting playing time. So was Jason Hill before Crabtree even signed. There are 53 guys on the roster, and some won't get to play, usually these guys are disappointed. Jones is clearly disappointed. But his comments were not critical of the coaching staff, and he definitely did not sound like he was loosing faith in Sing. Want to see a coach loose his players? Go see the Redskins locker room. You can say what you will about Sing, but loosing his locker room? Simply not true.

Bad move by Sing. I agree. Bad move. Appologizd and went on. If this happens again I would highly question his position.

Sorry to be so critical of your comments, but I feel like they are an overreaction to one terribly coached game. He's not perfect, and learning on the go, but so did every coach. Billichik was driven out of Cleveland, and he turned out to be alright. Lets give the guy some time, because as of now, he's winning games.
