I only see a frustrated head coach. When any head coach gets to this point, words are useless. He was given a big fat zero improvement to the team this year. Name me one impact free agent. Tell who the big name QB is. Give me one dog gone name on OL that was to be a starter to improve it. And don't say Marvel.
Our GM did absolutely nothing to help him. Last year's draft didn't help him, this years didn't until Crabtree started.
And we expect him to work miracles? If this was a situation at work, I would say Sing was setup to fail. Is there any other explanation? Did Scot get us a Pass Rusher? Did we improve our Secondary? I see Roman is still on the team. Ulbrich was still on the team.
I am in Sing's corner. He has made changes when he could. He has less than zero to work with. Could any of you critics do any better? I bet most would have told Scotty off and walked
That's fine and I understand that McCloughan did not upgrad this team in anyway this offseason aside from WR, which came at midseason.
But one of the biggest things about coaching is putting your players in the best position to succeed, and Singletary has not done that. However, I can not see him being let go at the end of the season, especially since this team will probably finish well again.
What needs to happen is for the coaching staff to get a complete overhaul. Get rid of Foerster and bring in an accomplished OL coach who can turn these relatively high draft picks into some thing worth looking at. Get rid of Jerry Sullivan.
Finally, get rid of Jimmy Raye. I know that another coordinator for Alex wouldn't be the best thing if he is the starter in 2010, but the only way that Singletary can work as our HC is if the 49ers bring in an offensive guru. Somebody that will have free reign in the offensive gameplan. Let him do whatever he wants. I don't know what great OCs is out there, but I do know that Mike Martz is.
Sing cannot touch the offensive which means getting rid of Raye who will comply with Sing's wishes Let Singletary be an almost figure-head of a head coach. He can be the motivational guy and also control in game situations. But he cannot have his hand in the offense.
