Singletary: "I was born to coach."

I don't know about you, but I am excited about Mike Singletary. Hell of a coach, looks like.

A week ago he said that he feels better suited to coaching than playing. Quite a statement coming from a Hall of Fame linebacker who some peg as the best Middle Linebacker ever.

"I am having the time of my life," Singletary said Wednesday as the 49ers (4-8) began preparations for Sunday's visit from the New York Jets.

"This is what I was born to do," he continued. "There is absolutely no doubt in my mind. ... I'm enjoying it simply because of the staff and because of the players. When you've got players like that and a staff like that, it makes it fun."

He's got players who believe in him like no coach before us. I can't remember anyone who got this kind of praise coaching for the Niners:

"He's a great motivator, but that's just one of his strengths," defensive back Donald Strickland said. "Everybody in this locker room has great respect for him, and the coaching staff has kept us in position to win games. Making a coaching change in the middle of the season could have been a distraction, but everybody here has kept working hard, and (Singletary) just increased our confidence all around."

I think we're set up for great things with Samurai Mike in charge.
