Without a doubt we have an 8-2 caliber roster, but we have a 4-6 coaching staff. Poorly integrated play-calling, inept game-planning, and a stubborn HC in over his head have held us back all season from becoming what we set out to be from the beginning of last January: contenders.
I wouldn't say firing Martz was Sing's biggest mistake, but Bill Walsh warned him that he would need to surround himself with "GREAT" people. People with rich experience, know-how, and to have an open mind with his vision
... Singletary has defied Bill Walsh's wisdom, and probably deserves the failure he's getting from his stoic approach.
