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.
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.
