For a smashmouth, fysical coach, Mike Singletary sure seems like to have saved his best material for the offensive side. Especially if the offensive player is a high first round draft pick.
He’s already had one reclamation project that we’re all acting like we expected all along, Vernon Davis. While Davis became the best tight end in the NFC right under our noses and everyone pretty much reacted by uttering, “Finally,” if A-Dot Smith somehow turns everything around in part due to Singletary’s motivational tactics (whatever they are), it won’t go so unnoticed.
Can Singletary somehow make an oft-injured, excuse-collecting, system quarterback realize his potential by looking into his eyes and pushing him to reach his inner greatness in the same way he did with a preening, ball-dropping, blocking tight end? If he can, whatever he does to help the defense is absolute gravy.
