I admit he had used some of those TOs (and/or instant replays) in a way that hurt us later in the game, and he SHOULD be accountable for that.
But when he uses a pep rally-like TO (like running 20 yards onto the field to get the attention of the referee), then the Niners stop the Jags on 3rd down, which ultimately led to missed FG from Scobee on 4th down...
He should be given credit for that as well.
All I'm asking for is some balance, all your Singletary homers: make him accountable for his rookie HC mistakes, and all you Singletary haters: give him credit when something does work.
I think you totally misunderstood the nature of that timeout. I dont think he was trying to huddle his players together to give them a motivational speech on stopping the Jags on 3rd. I think it was a personnel issue.

That Green Bay challenge was the right move percentage-wise. The problem was the defense couldn't stop GB on 3rd down. Had they done so the time out would have saved them 20 seconds. Without stopping them the time out wouldn't have mattered--GB still could have run out the clock.
The challenge was the same as a time out EXCEPT there was a chance they could have gotten better field position to defend!
