Singletary's message isn't being heard
Mike Singletary has changed offensive coordinators and late Sunday night he said he will continue changing starting quarterbacks.
You have to wonder when the San Francisco 49ers are going to consider changing head coaches.
While Jason La Canfora is just the latest to report that the 49ers coach will be safe for the time being or through the year, the team’s season has spun out of control. Their 27-24 loss Sunday night to the Philadephia Eagles dropped them to 0-5 for the first time since 1979. Joe Montana isn’t coming to the rescue this time.
The Niners are 0-5 like the Buffalo Bills and Carolina Panthers. Those organizations were expected to stink. San Francisco was the favorite to win the NFC West. Now, the 49ers will have a difficult time finishing .500 as they did a year ago under Singletary.
This was a close game, and the 49ers battled back, but surely switching from Alex Smith to David Carr isn’t the answer. The message Singletary is sending simply isn’t getting through. His team has failed to show up for multiple games. The firing of Jimmy Raye provided some spark to the offense, and turnovers led to their demise in this case.
“I think a pretty decent football team is 0-5," Singletary said. "I'm disappointed for them, because we put ourselves in this situation. Only we can get ourselves out."
For the time being, it appears Singletary will be able to help pull the team out of the rut. But after six consecutive losing seasons for the 49ers before last season, it appears they’re headed back in that direction.
It’s a good thing they already got the vote for a new stadium passed, isn’t it? Public support for the coach is running mighty low.
