And so the Mike Singletary era begins. I find it particularly fitting given that it's alumni day and they'll be rocking the 1980s throwbacks. This is not exactly the best test of where the 49ers are at given the Seahawks injuries and immense struggles. If they win they were supposed to win and if they lose, all hell could break loose. I'd just like a nice, solid, comfortable victory. No need for a blowout, but a win by 10+ points would really make life better going into the bye. Either way, it should make for an interesting Sunday.
