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.

After reading the Eddie D interview, I'd have to agree with you. At least regarding the decision to start Troy Smith over Carr. That decision came out of nowhere. Everyone was expecting Carr to start after Alex got injured...

Eddie DeBartolo: Troy Smith, I know well because we represented him and I thought and I still think that he’s going to do very well for the team. At least for the remainder of the five games and hopefully if he has a chance to compete next year.

Because I liken him a bit to Michael Vick. That’s a gigantic comparison, but he rolls out and he’s a threat, he’s got a strong arm, he’s a smart young man. I spent quite a bit of time with him in Youngstown when we signed him and his family.

When they signed him after the Ravens waived him, I thought that was a real good pick-up.

Is this the new "Fire Singletary" thread? Is so count me in, because THERE is nothing else to discuss when it comes to Singletary! FIRE HIM!

Is he gone yet?

I can't wait for the day he is gone.

He won't be gone.

The Vikings and Cowboys have higher standards and expectations for their HCs.

We scored double figures in points. That's good enough for this generation's 49ers.

5 year extension for Mike Singletary.....
anyone recall reports out there from our beat writers when singletary initially got hired as HC where he basically stated how he does'nt need to work a ton of hours and that he can partition his time out in a way that he has ample time to spend w/ his family?

My question to the beat writers would be whether singletary has continued this practice/philosophy that he has where he feels he can get what he needs done with less hours ala steve spurrier....this could be a major fault w/ the team if that is case as coaches see the boss leaving early and so do players.

i'll try to see if i can get on a chat this week to ask the beat writers this question, but if anyone else can look to do that as well it would be much appreciated.
Who cares 4 more games and he's gone

good point.

but god damn it pisses me off that we wasted the last 2yrs on this guy.

anyone else notice the mike johnson talks about how he has to hold back the offense because troy smith doesn't know yet...yet we continue to roll him out as we try to make the playoffs while smith sits on the bench and he knows the entire offense.

this guy just can't make any good decisions.

in this situation the last 2-3 games alex smith should've been the starter as he knows the entire playbook and allows us to be flexible

Actually a very sound argument for Alex. I've always been an Alex guy, but like Troy as well. Very good argument.

He might know the playbook but he doesn't have the cahones to do anything more than check the ball down up until that moment where he turns the ball over at an inopportune time to cost us the game. Been there seen that...no more need to see young Alex Fail us yet again.

let's see, Alex Smith checks down at least moving the ball. Troy Smith holds on to the ball and gets sacked. I will take Alex Smith.
