Singletary DON'T Name your starter!

if I was Singletary I would use a page of the Billicheat/Mangeious playbook and not announce the starter next week publicly all week. Then the Colts would have to prepare for both a power running and spread offense. Don't tip your hand Singletary.

A: we play the Colts so does it really matter?
B: I'm sure Peyton has probably already called Smith to congratulate him. and likely found out through Smith who's starting.
C: Everyone in America knows who's starting.


If Smith doesn't start Sing should be fired on the spot.

I agree that there really isn't much to guess. Smith will be starting.

Things like this is why the Browns are one of the laughing stocks in the NFL and no players want to play for Mangini. It gives no kind of advantage, and shows your team that the coach needs to resort to some type of childish games to give them a edge. You believe in your team and your starter you name him and go forth and play hard.

And Derrick Anderson has around 120 yards passing in his last two games combined. I feel for their fanbase.

There's a difference between not naming your starter and not knowing who your starter is. Mangini didn't know who his starter was going to be up until after the last preseaon game. That's what hurt them. It wasn't that he didn't name the starter. It's that he didn't know who it was going to be.

If Sing messes around and have them split 1st team snaps instead giving it to who he really wants to start. Then yea, you have a point. If he wants to start Alex and Alex gets all the reps. All the while not telling anyone on the outside who's going to start. We likely won't gain an advantage. But it will be far from detrimental to Alex.
what'll be hilarious is if he doesn't name his starter and it ends up being Shaun Hill.

Smith (and Raye) need to get familiar with each other. It was obvious that plays were coming in much to slow and Raye suddenly had to call different plays than what was a part of the game plan. The 49ers aren't going to gain a thing by not naming a starter. Splitting or alternating at this point during the season unless its at RB is just inane. The OL needs to be solidified. Competition isn' always the best thing for every unit ; Baas and Rachal should be benched and we need to eliminate any illusions of being this power rushing team with a big effective OL.

Staley- Wragge - Heitman - Snyder - Sims/Pashos. Start these guys. Let them play first team as much as possible so some chemistry can be established. Thanks to Baas, Smith gets hit on 4th and 10 despite both Davis and Bruce being behind the defense. The ball was underthrown because Baas gets pushed back into Smith.
Spread offense maybe, but our running game has been anything but "power" this year so far.

Oh yea I get the difference but either way it makes no sense and just makes you look stupid. Only fans think it makes a difference on the field you think the colts really didn't know who was gonna start. I was sure sing wouldn't be splittign time those days are over if you really want to be successful. i just don't like the idea of tryign to hide anythign at any point just tell it like it is.
