I don't know what it is, but this loss has pissed me off more than any of our losses in a long time. Then I'm reading articles afterwards and I'm hearing the Chiefs Defense was calling our offensive plays and getting them correct. And Singletary says he's staying with Raye???
I've refrained from jumping on any bandwagon that's included getting anyone fired...but it's clear that Jimmy Raye's offense is bland and predictable, and he should no longer be calling plays. And if Singletary doesn't see it, and wants to stay with him, then so be it - he needs to go as well.
Our defense hasn't been great either, but clearly we do not have the people in place on offense.
Reading that left me absolutely disgusted. It's been painfully obvious during Singletary's entire tenure so far with the 49er's that he isn't an X 'n' O's head coach; supposedly he is a "motivational" head coach.
All the motivation in the world isn't going to do a damn thing when your team shows up unprepared, and plays are getting called out, by the opposing defense. As a player, it has to be fairly disheartening when not only are you trying to impose an ancient form of football, but everyone knows exactly what play and how before the ball is even snapped.
And what the hell is the root behind his loyalty to Jimmy Raye? He should fire him, seeing that if he keeps him, they're both going to certainly be out of a job by season's end.
