I believe all the losing during his reign, has made many of you that have replied in this thread, not want to grasp what he is trying to convey.

... he certainly instilled a sense of pride and a more team-oriented mentality ... he was unprepared for the Xs and Os side of things ... Harbaugh was necessary to take the next step ... It's quite possible Vernon Davis isn't the force he is today without Singletary ...

NOT !!! Remember the BIG NICKEL, really had opposing OC shaking in their cleats
Under Nolan the 9ers D went from a 26th rating his first year to 13th his last year (2008). The next year, under Singletary? 15th (2009). I call that going backwards but I'm sure you have a math formula that explains why 15th is better than 13th? Singletary did bring the team back to 13th his second year (2010).
My point was that Nolan improved the D dramatically and Singletary did nothing to improve it but actually regressed his first year. So, Nolan built the D from near the bottom to 13th. I am not a Nolan fan but do appreciate his efforts on the D side of team.
Okay, I stand corrected ... As you are probably aware, statistics only tell part of any tale.
However, 18 games; his team(s) won 18 Games in 3.5 seasons. Never higher than 3rd in
4-12 (05), 7-9 (06), 5-11 (07), 2-5 (08)
So yes, the jump from 26th to 13th, was a BIG improvement; Kudos to him ... but then what happened?
I say, he lost the team, why, Bad HC. No, I don't have any MAGICAL formula. Sing going 15, and then
back to 13, isn't much of a difference either. Both coaches weren't offensive geniuses.
The Big Nickel to me, was just a Joke. As I stated, I AM GLAD HE IS GONE. I guess what's going on here,
is a matter of opinion, point of view, and how we view this topic of conversation. Bottom line; although I don't
totally agree with the OP, I see some merit in what he tried to convey ... you don't. So be it.
