2.) That was Walsh's first season. This is Singletary's second and a halfth season.
3.) Walsh's team had very little talent. Singletary's team has a lot of talent.
Unless the team makes a DECENT push, I wouldn't be surprised if Singletary is gone next year, and we bring in a FA QB and/or rookie QB to compete with Alex.
Yes, York has given Sing a vote of confidence, but that could be so he doesn't make him a lame-duck coach.
You forgot the most important one:
4.) Walsh was a great coach. Singletary is a terrible coach.
Bottom line is none of us that are calling for Alex to be replaced, Sing to be fired, Walsh's spirit to rise up and call plays are in the business of making football decisions for a living. And that is the problem, there are no truly qualified football minds in the niners hierarchy that can make solid football decisions. The one constant through all the championship years, as it is for any successful franchise, was truly great football minds running the show. It started with Eddie D making the right hire in Walsh and grew from there. Jed York needs to take a page from his uncle, pick the minds of the leagues current elite minds and bring someone in to run the franchise - pick the right coach, players, trainers, towel boys etc. There has be a number of guys in the Indy, Pit, Pats organizations that we could pluck away to run the niners. Until then, enjoy the incompetence from top to bottom.
