Coach Singletary Thread (General Topics)

I wish he would get a separated neck and we could put him on IR for the remainder of the season. He obviously isn't helping and his motivational BS isn't working in the penalty department.
There is zero doubt in my mind that if we make it to the playoffs, all will be forgive. A.Smith and J.Raye will be the scapegoat.

I still have know idea what Sing does? He doesn't call plays, he doesn't watch the clock. What the heck does he do on the sideline besides throw temper tantrums?

If Sing makes the playoffs, then I think he gives a convincing, very convincing end of season interview. He has the facts of why we lost early in the season and if he uses those, he will be very convincing. He also has some solid scapegoats:

1. Raye
2. Alex
3. Player bonehead turnovers

He can even blame the KC loss on Raye. He can also take credit for finding, if everything continues as it has, a very capable OC from nowhere and making the decision to switch along with Troy Smith. Hell, he can even convince Jed that Mike Johnson could be a project into being the HC (of course, this will be only to keep his job).

This is all IF we make the playoffs.

I very much disagree. I'd take a franchise QB any day over a top CB. A franchise QB has a lot to do with winning games more than a CB, who'd eliminate only half the field while the opposing QB could still pick apart the other half. Right now the only thing missing a offense is a QB. On defense we still need or aren't set at the NT, LB and Safety positions.

Ahhh Kolohe, there is a fine line between franchise qb and a bust, Ryan Leaf, Tim Couch, Alex Smith, franchise QB's all, then it turned midnight and they turned into either a pumkin or a toad.

Know what? I don't think Dingleberry is in control of the team anymore. I really don't.

It's just conjecture. I have no proof for you. No links. No "dad-gum Yahoo" stuff. It's just the feeling I get when I watch the man at the podium after games and on news conference Mondays.

That traditional Singletary fire? GONE! That ZIP? GONE! The bravado? VANISHED LIKE A FART IN THE WIND!

He gives every impression through body language -- voice and response that he is no longer running the show in 49er land. He gives every impression that someone is yanking his chain.

One more thing? He doesn't like it either. Which is why he's giving off these "SIGNS" that something isn't quite right in Dingleberry land.

Whatever. If there's someone else calling the shots? It's working. Don't mess with the formula son. Just keep drinking that koolaid until it turns sour.

Coming from someone who wants Singletary fired, he really is in a no-win (ha) situation. He doesn't know the nuances of being a head coach because he's never been one. I don't think there is anyone on the staff who has been one. There isn't anyone if the front office that he can lean on as a sounding board because Jed is too green, narcissistic to think that he needs help. He doesn't know offense nor how to develop/manage a young QB.

The Yorks are too shallow-minded to think that it takes more than passion/emotion to be a successful HC, which is why they failed with Nolan/Singletary. Could Mariucci gameplan?

This is a dumb question, but why does he wear a headset if he's not going to use it? I know a lot of you all fed up with just looking at him, but I challenge you to watch him "coach." I don't ever see him speak into the headset, and watching him coach the players is like watching a dad talk to his kid in little league.

I'll give credit to Shingles. He's going down, but he's going down his way.

I agree. I think it will be hard for the York's to fire Singletary if he makes the playoffs. We haven't been to the playoffs in almost a decade and to fire the only coach that takes us there after the whole down and downs that this season has been is going to be difficult to justify.

While I do agree with the common perception is that Singletary has little impact in the overall outcome of the game, he must have done something to right to get us to the playoffs, right? Even if it does mean simply getting out of the way.

...and that would be an utter disaster. This division is absolutely atrocious, and making the playoffs pretty much means nothing, especially considering where we were at last year. This is also why I can totally understand when people say they don't care if we win or are even rooting against the team, it actually makes perfectly good sense right now, and there is a lot of logic behind it. Right now, I can understand the perspective of every 9er fan, rooting for or against the team, desperate times call for desperate measures.

Man, I'm torn on what will happen, thinking from our management perspective...or, "from a management standpoint."

The thing is, HE was responsible for getting rid of Martz, having a philosophy that turned away innovative OC's and ultimately choosing and sticking with Raye well beyond any semblance of success. He also chose Alex Smith, got rid of Hill and has been very tentative of Mike Johnson. He still strong arms MJ (obviously), throws players under the bus and holds ZERO accountability of Manusky who has failed miserably this year with a veteran defense. He's demonstrated he's 100% reliable on his coordinators and position coaches and STILL his archaic philosophy permeates throughout both coordinator's game plans. Then you look at the expectations of this team, poor clock management, constant time outs, communication problems, how poor we are on the road, how unprepared we are, how many games we've been outcoached, the talent on this team, the zero accountability by players (even veterans), leading the league in penalties, poor fundamentals, players only showing up on nationally televised games, staying the course, etc. there is NO doubt in my mind he should be gone.

BUT...

This is the Yorks. Singletary is a great buffer for them and he's cheap. If we do win this division, they MAY give him another shot with Troy Smith who may end up being the next Shaun Hill.

If we make the playoffs it will be because of the weak division. I don't think it should factor into the coaching decision... and I hope the front office sees that. That first playoff game might be more of a consideration. But seriously? Didn't they make the same mistake keeping Nolan for that extra year?
