Mike Shanahan would know what to do with Alex, Frank, Vernon, and Michael!
BINGO! My friend and I were discussing this very same topic. In the past, the York's have managed the team by making last minute, knee jerk decisions. Now it's time for Jed York to be PROACTIVE. It's an exciting time to be a Niners fan. We have a brand new stadium on the horizon and we have a lot of quality players on the squad.
That being said, Jed has to question whether "Mike Singletary" football is going to put fans in the seats? Many would argue that going across town to watch a 10-3 football is boring. I'm just playing devils advocate here so bear with me.
I like Singletary, but at the end of the day I see him nothing more than a rah rah type of coach. I certainly don't think he'll wow anybody with his Xs and Os. Rah Rah coaches are the first coaches to lose their effectiveness. I'd argue that it's already happening.
Why not hire Shanny at the end of the season and do whatever it takes to keep Manusky as defensive coordinator? I think this would be a step in the right direction.
1. Alex likes the digit system much more than the WCO so we clamor for the digit system.
2. Alex thrives in the spread so we want Sing to cator to Alex and use the spread.
Now we want Shannahan to force Alex into a system that he doesn't like? Sooner or later, that won't be Alex's fault either.
I'm sorry, but sooner or later, this kid needs to adjust a little also.
