I thought Singletary was the guy who was doing all the talking about making them a smash-mouth physical team etc. when he took over. However seems like most think Singletary didn't have much too do with getting the 49ers to where they are today and others guys picked the players. Thanks for the info on this.

Singletary did have something to do with the 2010 draft though. He was adamant the niners draft Taylor mays even though Baalke didnt want to.
building isn't just in the drafting of the team. he set the tone for the 49ers to be tough and smash mouth. Vernon Davis wouldn't be nearly as good as he is now without the lessens he learned from Singletary.

Not Manning's fault at all...but Willis wasn't responsible for all of Manning's interceptions now was he?

He posted that it seemed like Willis was on the field every time there was an INT....which is ludicrous. Willis wasn't targeted in almost all of Manning's INT's save for the one Willis ****ed up the route on.

I was actually giving Willis a back handed compliment. Dude made some good catches but everyone is going to remember him for INT's when he was in formation. I was on those game day threads I remember everyone blaming Willis even when he wasn't the intended target. Hence the use of the word SEEMS!

You'd get a beatdown talkin like this in a mission district bar. There was so much wrong with Singletary that people around here had McDaniels type hate. There's plenty of reasons why he got booed in candlestick when the Vikings came to town.


I agree with John Madden on his assessment about Singletary. You can scream and yell all you want but at the end of the day if you aren't coaching/encouraging all you're doing is yelling. Sure some guys (Davis) credit that to getting them right in the head. But at the same time you have to coach and Singletary didnt do that. He laid blame of losses on the players way too much. While making zero adjustments during a game.

Singletary refused to take blame for anything. Things that a head coach should take blame for. Like making adjustments in the game or getting plays in on time. He got Dennis odonnell fired for simply asking questions that a coach should answer. He was a pompous ass and is the reason coaches around the league did not want to be on his staff.

You're right.

That pick six against the Chuggers was on him.

Quanterus Smith - DL - Broncos

Broncos fifth-round DE Quanterus Smith (torn ACL) has been participating in individual and positional drills at OTAs this week.
Smith isn't even six-and-a-half months shy of tearing his left ACL. "When Iím done doing the drills I feel good," Smith said. "I donít feel all the way normal but I still have another month-and-a-half to get ready. Everything feels good. I donít feel like Iím babysitting it too much." Smith plans to be ready for team drills once training camp rolls around in late July.

This is promising news.

i never said he was a good coach. his teaching of X's and O's was poor. i said he helped build the team's identity of toughness and helped some of their better players move forward into the next evolution of their career.

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Bears have traded 2011 first-round draft choice Gabe Carimi, an offensive lineman, to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Bears will receive a sixth-round pick in the 2014 draft, league sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.

Trestman is making some great moves, Carimi would have likely been cut after TC he is so bad.

I think duh bears can make a lot of noise, Trestman was a solid hire and he will stablize things quickly. Cutler will either buy in and become the QB he can be or will be looking for a job this time next year.

Vonta Leach is a stud. Some team is going to be benefiting big time.

I think they have moved on. I could see a team like Cleveland Browns considering him, San Francisco, Minnesota. Think power running teams.

The Raiders should sign Leach. Go power running with mcFadden. Leach is just the sort of thumper he needs to get enough room to be effective and get to 1200 yrds or more a season again.
