Because Singletary beat up the guys in the off season, they simply worn out.
When Bill Walsh was a coach he did the opposite and gave the players lots of energy going deep into the post season.
Also, don't blame Raye, Singletary is stifling the team by telling the OC to be conservative and being stubborn on being a run first kind of team.
Let's face it, up to this day, if you have an established west coast offense, there is no other offensive scheme that is better in putting up points.
The 49ers will never win another championship until they bring back Holmgren and company. The sooner the better. Let's face it, a great motivational speaker don't really translate into a good game day coach. We gave Singletary a chance but he is not the answer! He is simply a so so NFL coach out in the field.
