Maiocco on KNBR: 49ers don't have nasty leaders

He was talking about the 49ers inability to turn the tide when things start to go south. He said that the 49ers decided to go "nice" and now they lack that nasty leader (not the BY, P. Willis kind of leader) that scares young players. Maybe we should consider bringing in someone like that in this offseason.

We need a real coach first.

We do not have any leaders of any kind on todays team. Nodody to set the example or to hold people accountable. I think originally Sing was that person in the beginning but now the players have figured out that he and the rest of the coaching staff do not have answers either. These players also lack confidence and alot of them may even lack the heart to win. ie the Ronnie Lotts, Jerry Rices etc.
Example if Crabtree isnt running his routes precisely a QB as a a leader should be getting in his face.

This "leadership" thing is big-time BS. Sorry Maiocco, I just do not agree with you. On this team, with all of its problems, a "leader" might yell at the guys who are screwing up, but because many of the screwups just do not have what it takes physically or mentally, nothing will change. Then the "leadership" becomes just what we see in Singletary - it just becomes noise that changes nothing.

A couple of past leaders that would be great to have on the team now were not the big names. On a team with Ronnie Lott, the "enforcers" were...Harris Barton and Guy McIntyre.

It didn't matter who or what, if a guy was not doing his job, especially if it was a rookie, one of those guys would take him on. Of course, both being big and strong, there was no one that scared them but plenty who listened and paid attention if someone gave up on a play. If Michael Crabtree was slacking on practice time, Barton would take him aside and, very quietly, inform him that if he wanted to be able to play on Sunday, he had better start taking care of business in practice.

Seifert really had an easy time of it when he came in because the players were running the team, and they held a very high standard. Walsh, and later, Seifert, spoke about how it was critical to the success of the team to have the players take responsibility for their success. All the coaches had to do was coach. The players took care of discipline.

No one wanted to see Seifert get upset. He always had that stern dad look to me.

Agreed, the screaming and kicking only works for so long. At some point you have to draft players that can actually play.
Here we go with "we need a fiery leader with nasty swag." Stupidest sht I've ever heard.

How about some coaches who can actually coach properly at the NFL level?
