Easy for Sando to say, because he is a casual observer. He has probably not seen an entire 49er game this season or last, he has a lot of teams to cover. He does not follow the team as closely as a local beat writer or a fan.
Sure he makes a few good points, but with not depth or context they are mostly meaningless. One thing he points out, and I was just thinking about this myself, is that Mike Singletary has NEVER been a coordinator.
Even Nolan had coordinator experience, and when he needed to he took over defensive play calling. Singletary could never do this, he has never created a game plan offensive or defensive and then implemented it! WOW that is mind boggling!
I am a youth football OC/O-line coach, I have created a playbook, all 12 plays(24 if you count lefts and rights). I have watched film and game written and executed a game plan, calling plays and making adjustments. I am not ready for high school football, not yet anyway, and yet I have done something Singltary HAS NEVER DONE!
Mike Singletary does not carry a play card on the sidelines, because he does not know how to call plays! Yet ladies and gentleman, boys and girls cats and kittens, he is our head coach!
NO NEED TO PANIC!
