It makes me wonder...if the internet had been around in 1979, what would have been the fan consensus on Walsh when he went 2-14 his first year and then 6-10 his second year? I can see the posts now..."The short passing game does not work!!! Fire Walsh!!!"
Not saying Singletary is the second coming of Walsh, just saying if you are going to start firing coaches every year, you are never going to get any better. The Raiders have proven that.
I agree, but at the same time, at least me personally, I don't want Singletary fired because he isn't a good coach. I believe with the right team, he can be a very good coach. He could even win a Super Bowl one day. However, it ain't going to happen with THIS team. It just seems like everything is too much for him. We're trying to hang around, instead of trying to gain an edge on our opponents. We need that killer instinct. Singletary doesn't have that. It might work if he had an aggressive OC, but he doesn't. Raye is just as weak as he is.
Another thing is that we're a passing team. We can't run effectively. It's just not a good fit here. If we go 4-12, I want him and Raye out of here, and let's bring in someone who can bring out the strengths of the team. I got a couple guys in mind.
If we can find a good, aggressive OC to replace Raye and keep Singletary as HC, I'd be open to that idea as well. The problem is, a lot of these guys available want total control.
