We Should Thank Nolan For the Character of this Team

Who would have thought we would be like the old Niners or the Patriot. The character of the leaders on this team and the ownership they have is to THAT level now. You know, the level where we can bring in troubled players and keep them in a straight line for less value. Nolan started this philosphy and Singletary is enforcing it.

Read the post again. What Joe is saying is, because we have plenty of high character guys, who are now the leaders of the locker-room - we can bring in some troubled guys to surround them with the right ppl.

But who's keeping those character issue guys in check? The players who have ownership of this team.
I think Nolan is a very good coordinator and "football guy." that being said, its obvious that he isn't a head coach
Nolan may have wanted the philosophy but he had to bring Singletary and his HOF along with him for credibility. I can't think of one guy that Nolan turned for the better, character wise. But Singletary did turn around V. Davis and went along way in influencing the mentality of other guys on the team. They seems to genuinely like to play for Singletary, even when they know he can be tough on them.

Nolan knows x and o's= coordinator
Sing don't know as much x and o's but knows how to lead = head coach

Best thing that Nolan did for us was brought Singletary with him.
He's gone now, lets forget about him...

Nolan helped bring some very good players to this team. Singletary is getting everything out of them, but Nolan brought them here. We just franchised Franklin but it's more about these guys' character.

Justin Smith
Vernon Davis
Alex Smith (leads by example very well)
Frank Gore
Nate Clements
Patrick Willis (Scott McClughon)

These guys lead this team and make sure everyone does what they need to do.

Your right about that. He was a s**tty head coach but one hell of a gm imo.

You're also forget Michael Lewis and Michael Robinson. Both are high character guys.
