Good for him. Most coaches probably want to do this, but they don't have the credentials that Mike Singletary has. Obviously, he doesn't have the coaching experience, but everyone knows what he accomplished as a player. Chances are better that people will listen to him.

The first step in turning around a bad team is figuring out who the bad apples are, and weeding them out. Question is, will ownership have Singletary's back? They were discussing this on Mike and Mike this morning.

Fire Wade Phillips AND Jason Garrett and bring him to Dallas. No fuckery would be tolerated in a Singletary regime. If he is not hired permanently by the Niners he will have a head coaching job next season. He has been a finalist multiple times and this press conference where he showed that he will not accept a losing culture, could be what gets him over the hump.

I think Mike clearly overreacted in that press conference.

Examples have to be made. Vernon Davis was probably a player he was watching mess up from a distance.

Sure Vernon Davis may have a track record of doing dumb things but you don't single guys out like that.

Yes yo do single guys out like that. It is a proven tactic. You call a player out, and you put the ball in his court. Vernon now has to prove Mike's criticisms wrong. If being called out is good enough for players like Lawrence Taylor and Emmit Smith, then it is good enough for Vernon Davis. The whole team is now on notice that foolishness will not be tolerated.

Singletary gots that fire! I knew he'd be great too.. hes a HOF Linebacker who knew the game inside and out and played with his brain as much as his athleticism.

Major props.. Niners might turn into a favorite team of mine all cuz of their coach.

It's certainly future beer commercial fodder, but still a breath of fresh air. It isn't like the rant-iffic tirades of Denny Green and Jim Mora, the dude's just authoritative, he was still somewhat contemplative throughout the whole thing. I'd play for that guy.

Which is what is wrong with the coach/athlete relationship these days. These players don't know how to handle adversity. They're not challenged. Good for Singletary.

These are grown men. If you have a problem with a person, you handle it in private. No need to besmirch someone in front of millions of people. It's unprofessional.

In Vernon Davis's case it's acceptable. The guy has been an idiot from the day the Niners drafted him. Hopefully this embarassment will turn his career around. Nolan was just too soft to stand up to him.

No, that's stupid. All the reasons given so far as to why you DO call them out are good ones, but that doesn't have anything to do with it anyways.

You missed the whole point as usual.

The press ASKED Singletary about the Vernon Davis thing. Singletary responded.

You don't keep something like that a secret in today's day and age. Get a clue.

Everyone saw him get sent off the field. Today's douchy news crews are not going to rest until they find out why.

Singletary was asked, and answered honestly, and Davis will either be a man and handle his problems, or he will be a punk and get an attitude and be gone.
