Member Milestone: This is post number 200 for Oldschool9erfan.I think you are making Lowell's argument for him.......
Just because players moved around to different positions or became full time starters under Harbaugh is a bigger slam on Singletary. He couldn't recognize the talent.
The only new players we picked up on Defense were Whitner and Rogers. I agree they were upgrades, but they didn't explain the 7 win difference.
The players that moved positons were Soap to NT.....he played better than Franklin who we had to sign a one year tender.
Made full time starters were Bowman, Brooks, Ray McDonald..........WHY WEREN'T THEY STARTERS BEFORE? (I don't think Bowman was ready in his Rookie year, but they werent afraid to let spikes go.)
Singletary also "FORCED" Baalke to draft Taylor Mays!
The offense was essentially the same players except opposing teams WERENT CALLING OUT OUR PLAYS before the snap. Singletary also couldnt commit to a QB and couldn't coach the QB because he didn't know what he was doing and couldn't coach a QB and didn't think the QB was any harder than any position on the team.
I agree Baalke upgraded the team with his moves, but we were a better team than 6-10. But Singletary also couldn't get the coaches for his system because he was a dinosaur.
