The Niners are a train wreak, totally dysfunctional, their actions do not match there words. Internal fortitude, strength of character, and success comes when inner thought, action and words are all in alignment.
Let me give a few examples,
"We will be a running team and impose our will" = Words
We draft Crabtree, while passing on Oher, or Beannie Wells.= Action
We DON"T bring in any free agent O-linemen in free agency, not even for work outs.
Then we sign Jones at Wr. = Action
We let Sheets get away, Keeping only two running backs (Mrob is a not an NFL caliber RB, he is a converted QB) = Action
We keep 6-7? WR on the roaster= Action
We let Billy Bajema a blocking TE go = Action
Either we are being lied to, or Singletary is lying to himself, or mabye just maybe, ScottyM is not on the same page as Sing, either way it does not look good for our Niners going forward.
Our roster is a shambles, we need to decide who we really are, are we a tough hard nosed running team, then we need to cut Hill, Spurlock, and Ziggy becuase they will never be the blockers we need.
Are we a deep ball passing team, then we need to say good by to Battle, Bruce and Mrob.
Are we a "west coast" short passing team relying on the R.A.C., well then....
I think you get my point we need to decide who we are and taylor our roster to fit. We seem to be hedging our bets and hoping an identity will some how evolve, that way lies disaster.
Sing and Scotty need to be on the same page, come out and say what the direction is and stick with it!
One thing is certain we are not a running team.
Just my thoughts take it for what it is worth.
I think people take the running game comment a little too literally What people say is important if Sing says somthing and fails to do it his integrity is on the line, Scotty has to have his back.
Draft Crabtree (had there not been an extended holdout this would be a mute point Crabs looks like the real deal, that is not the point, it is about Action following words
What "quality" FA O-linemen were there? Hey nobody thought Smily was a quality O-linemen, except Parcells, and the point is depth and competition, not big names and fantasy football, Madden crap any way.
Let Sheets get away. Big deal a flash in the pan in preseason when thirds/fourths and experimental personell packages are being utilized. Back field pressence was horrible. Good legs do not make for a complete back. Sheets himself is not the issue going light on running backs is... when you say you are a running team, again Action backing up words.
I'll give you the over abundance of WRs Thanks I guess even a blind squirrel gets a nut every once in a while.
Bajema with Davis and Walker performing like they are no complaints here Sure I love the receiving threat from out TEs and Davis is a beast as a blocker, but a running team would carry 3 TEs
You want to taylor the roster. Fine but you have to work with what you got. You can't blow up the roster and assume every free agent will want to come here. You have to taylor your roster or else you will wander lost in mediocrity, that is the difference between good bad and great teams
You want a defined direction? I'll give you one. What ever it takes to win. Sure tell that to Al Davis Appearantly you missed that yesterday. did we win? I must have missed that part Would Nolan of had the guts to switch up the O to the spread offence? Of course not Nolan was a twit
Look what Bill Parcels did with focus and determination in just one season, look what we have done since the firing of Mooch with no clear mission.
Parcells succeeded were we have failed by simply not caring if he let a good player get away, if the player did not suit his vision he was gone! Great GMs have a plan and vision and fearlessly execute the plan, never worrying if they are making the right moves.
Um what success?
Taylor your personell? One off season and you want miracles? Like I said you can't blow up the roster. We blew up the roster when we fired Mooch, let Owens go, lost Garcia, and Peterson, we had to in order to get control of our cap, Nolan benefitted from this and was left with loads of picks and the largest amount of cap room in NFL history, to bad he F'ed it up!
Your worried about credibility with Mike? He's always been a straight shooter. You can continue to ignore the fact that Mike is a stand up guy and will admit when he's wrong and isn't afraid to make changes.
Mike will lose credibility if his words don't match the teams actions, here's a few reasons why,
If he and Scotty aren't on the same page players will be divided
Players can smell power, if Sing says one thing and something else happens, who has the power.
Words= Action= Credibility, Action not equal to words= weakness.
Really? I think he'd lose more credibility by being stubborn and throwing Hill out there, hoping that the run game will finally pick up. It isn't. We aren't a power running team right now. He would love for us to be, but we aren't. What Singletary wants to do more than anything though is win. So for that, he has credibility and the players' respect. He made a change last year when he put Hill in for O'Sullivan. Now this year it's Hill's turn to sit on the bench. Coaches make changes. Coaches say they want to do this or do that, but on Sundays, it's a war. Things happen and you have to adjust. We still believe in running the ball, but until we can, we won't. It's that simple. It's not as dysfunctional as you think it is.
By the way, what's wrong with drafting Crabtree? Are you saying because we're supposed to be a power running team that we shouldn't have any decent WRs? Running and passing go hand-in-hand. If we can run, we can set up the pass. If we can pass, we can set up the run.
