Lots of talk about Sing losing people, lots of fans jumping ship. Talk about Sing losing his players, it all comes back to credibility, and having your actions meet your words,
Mike Singltarys actions are not meeting up well with his words, and therefor the outcomes are not as he predicts!
This can lead to a spiral were the out come moves farther and farther away from his words and actions, a seeming disconnect with reality.
Mike seems to think that flexibility is a weakness, he is not used to have to adapt.
If you don't know how to adapt and make change, you will generally do one of two things. You will either stick to your guns and go down with the ship. Or you will flail about looking for answers, Mike appears ready to go down with the ship, rather than flail.
Mike is left with only these choices because he has always lived by the my way or the highway tough guy code.
Bill Walsh was smash mouth vertical passing disciple of Paul Brown, he ran this kind of offense in Cincinnati, and in Oakland, when faced with a changing world and a limited roster, he was able to change what he did.
Don Shula won with Larry Zonka and a power running game in the seventies and was able to be flexible in the eighties and win with passing and Dan Marino.
Singletary needs to learn who to be flexible in a hurry, I don't think after a lifetime of willing his way through walls he can learn to walk around them.
