Nobody gets a pass for that.
Hill should have been pulled in Atlanta, giving smith an additional two weeks , and crabtree should have also seen some snaps. As we have witnessed, he really is a stud and could have contributed as did Braylon Edwards did in NY after just days of being traded and learning a new system
You think Crabtree shoulda played against Atlanta????
I agree, Crabtree's gonna be a stud and he did a great job against Houston, but really . . . You do remember that Braylon Edwards is a veteran player who long ago adjusted to the speed of the NFL. Comparing Crabtree to him is a bit premature, don't you think?
Just how was Singletary supposed to prepare Battle for catching a punt like the one he dropped, when it was coming out of the sun and moving sideways on him? Tough catch for anyone. "Home field advantage" I believe its called.
I recall when you were as dedicated as anyone in defending the Niners coaches and front office. Now they've got a guy at HC that the players are all willing to listen to and follow, and you want to fire him midseason? Perhaps a bit more patience is in order?
And remember--Nolan threw A. Smith to the wolves. Who can blame Singletary for going a bit more slowly with (re) introducing Smith to the starting lineup? My take is that Singletary was as much interested in handling the resurrected QB carefully as he was in giving Hill a shot to keep the position that he played so well last year. Seems like an intelligent, patient way to handle things; not a kneejerk reaction, but a planned out approach.
Again, I think you need to show a bit more patience with Singletary. I'm not saying ignore his mistakes, but wait to see how he addresses them before you start calling for his head. JMHO.
