VISION.

So I've been reading a lot about Mike Singletary talking about his "Vision" for this team. Frankly, it get's me pumped. For far too long the 49ers have seemed to embody the word "reactionary" in every way.

Whether it be our offseason signings, where we seem to sign the biggest free agent available to bolster our defense (i.e. Nate Clements, Justin Smith)(to be fair, I don't reall have an issue with this, other than it seemed to mask our philosophical short-comings year in, year out), or our defensive philosophy under Mike Nolan, where we seemed to employ the "wait and see" approach. This gameplan is similar to the "read and react" stratagy, sans reacting in a timely enough manner to stop the reciever from getting the 1st down. No one was accountable. No one said "We WILL be smackin' fools next season." Ownership.

But that has all changed. And even if it's still to early to judge Mike Sing for his performance, one thing he has definitely improved already is that facet of our team personality. We have a "Vision."  We WILL be a physical team on both defense AND offense. We WILL run the ball. We WILL rush the passer. This is a vast improvement over the Nolan era in my opinion.

Am I nuts, or will the Niners, under this new philosphy and our dynamic new commander, take the division comfortably and play well into the playoffs next year?

Let the banter begin...
