I have a different take of the season here as of week two. It sums up like this:
1-The Yorks have NO clue on how to run a winning team.
I say this, starting with the firing of Steve Mariucci after a 10-6 season and division round exit (I was 11 at the time) and found it incredibly dumb. Mariucci was a good coach who managed games well and kept us competitive as best he could. Then, they hire Dennis Erickson, and I even as a 12 year old found this a bad idea. I knew how college coaches often don't translate to the pro's. We go 7-9 and clean house and follow it up with a miserable 2-14 year (Thank you Cardinals.) We had Terry Donahue who was awful, drafting people like Mike Rumph and Rashaun Woods, to name a few. Erickson's gone and I am relieved to have Mike Nolan. We draft Alex Smith, have a few bad years and he gets fired. Mike Nolan seemed over his head and was terrible in interviews. He did, however, draft some solid players such as Patrick Willis, Frank Gore, Vernon Davis, and others.
As far as Singletary goes, he is severely lacking in offensive philosophy, gametime adjustments, and game management. The Yorks refuse to hire some real front office people/GM's to evaluate talent and help the team. We have had a grand total of TWO winning seasons under their watch and lots of mediocrity. They are asking Singletary to do too much, and putting him in a position to fail by giving him so much power. The Yorks have not hired competent and experienced football people. There are very few experienced football people anywhere in the team, be it the ownership, coaching staff, front office, etc. They keep hiring people with little experience that are not cut out for the job.
My point is in my rant here that Singletary is not a great coach at this point and not helping, but ownership is the underlying problem with the team right now. Please comment below with feedback..
