But it was Nolan who set this franchise up for staple of mediocrity. You got to give him credit for that. He accomplished phase 1, got the Niners out of the dumps, and not just temporarily, but securely out of the dumps.
Sing's task is to complete phase 2. A consistent playoff team.
So Sing and Nolan should not be overly compared. They both have far different goals based on far different starting positions.
