NFL.com runs a variety of ____ of the week polls. Last year we did what we could to help Patrick Willis win rookie of the week and defensive player of the week, week in and week out.
This week, Mike Singletary is a nominee for Motorola Coach of the Week. Here's what the folks at nfl.com had to say about each candidate:
Mike Singletary: Singletary recorded his first career win as head coach of the 49ers in their 35-16 win vs. the St. Louis Rams. 49ers QB Shaun Hill completed 15 of 20 passes for 213 yards and two touchdowns as RB Frank Gore rushed for 106 yards and two touchdowns on 18 carries. 49ers CB Walt Harris made an interception and had a sack to contribute to the total of four sacks and two interceptions recorded by the 49ers in the win.
Eric Mangini: Mangini led the Jets to a 34-31 win over the division rival New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium. Jets QB Brett Favre completed 26 of 33 passes for 258 yards and two touchdowns, while RB Thomas Jones rushed for 104 yards and a touchdown on 30 carries. The Jets sacked Patriots QB Matt Cassel three times and Jets LB Eric Barton forced one fumble.
Mike McCarthy: McCarthy and the Packers recorded a 37-3 victory against the Chicago Bears. Packers QB Aaron Rodgers completed 23 of 30 passes for 227 yards and two touchdowns. RB Ryan Grant rushed for 145 yards and a score on 25 carries. The Packers controlled the ball for more than 37 minutes. Packers CB Charles Woodson recorded one sack and DE Jason Hunter returned a fumble 54 yards for a touchdown.
So head on over to nfl.com and vote early and often. I think it'd be appropriate for him to get the award in his first NFL win.
