Good hell people. I hate this mentality of getting rid of Sing and Raye because of a bad stretch.
If we'd had this mentality back in 1979 after Walsh's 2-14 start he'd be out the door. His 1980 record was 6-10 and that would've caused many of you to want him gone even more. Hell most of the people calling for Sing and Raye to be gone would be sharpening the pitchforks and lighting the torches in the middle of Walsh's first season!
We have an outside chance at 10-6 (not likely), a decent chance at 9-7 (very doable). I'll be shocked if we end up below 8-8 (personally I think we'll end up at 9-7 which is what I predicted at the beginning of the year).
An 8-8 record will be the best record we've had since 2002!! That alone will make this season a success in my mind because we've only had 2 winning seasons in 10 years.
Walsh revolutionized offense. What are Singletary and Raye going to do? They're not reinventing the wheel or anything. Singletary knows nothing about offense. Raye has never proven anything. They won't be missed.
Walsh didn't revolutionize offense his first year, nor his second year. That's the point I'm making.
Sing hasn't even coached for a full year yet and already people are calling for his head on a silver platter.
Yeah, I get what you're saying, but I don't think Singletary is really going to be a genius coach or anything like that. We won't be losing a great football mind. He just wants to run and play defense. Raye has had plenty of time to prove himself in the league. I don't mind giving Singletary another year, but I want a qualified OC under him. If it was up to me, I'd just go get a Shanahan or Holmgren though, to be honest.
