Where did we fall . . .

I wanted to start a thread to get some input as to were the fellow faithful think we lost our way during Coach Sing tenure.

1) Losing Mike Martz (If anyone says Jim Raye was a better choice stop lying to yourself) I wish that Martz and Sing could have got along.

2) Trading Shaun Hill. Without a solid backup we started the season 0-5 or changing at 1-6 because Alex Smith got injured.
The team failed when the ownership failed to understand that they had absolutely no clue how to build a winning football team.

There must have been a better option than Martz and Hill.

Where did we fail? Appointing TDon.
when we hired a coach who has no experiance witth X;s and O's and says he will go over the film but doesnt no how to anylize it and has no clueand would rather play to his philosphy rather than play to the strengths of our players

Like I said, Martz was a good balance for Singletary and had Hill played all 16 games, he projected that year to 3rd in the league in total yards. We saw him put up similar #'s this year with a much less talented offense in Detroit. All Martz had to do was meet Sing in the middle and add a couple pieces and get VD involved and there is your continuity folks.

The hiring of Sing was when all the problems started b/c of his poor philosophy and schemes on both sides of the ball.

I think we could have won with Hill if giving the proper support.

Our D was solid and Hill could make plays. I once compared us to the Ravens when they won with that D and solid play from Trent "Big Daddy" Dilfer.

We fell in love with winning "sexy" wanting former glory of complete domination. I would take winning ugly any day of the week.

Because as the saying goes, You know what the call teams on Monday that barely won a Super Bowl on Sunday, Super Bowl Champs. . .

Much as you obviously hate him I would have thought you would have realised that you cant place the blame for where we are on one player.
