Is your Mike Singletary driving you crazy? Clawing at your coaching staff and yelling TOO LOUD at the media? There is a solution, stupid, and it’s not "kitten mittons".
Mike Singletary fired 49ers Offensive Coordinator Jimmy Raye on Monday following an embarrassing 31-10 loss to the Chiefs. Which followed a tragically self-inflicted loss against the Saints last Monday. Which followed a shockingly inadequate display against the pitiable Seahawks in Week 1. All of which followed a decade of gross 49er underachievement.
Over the past seven years, the 49ers are 33-72, without a single winning season. If you consider yourself a Niners fan and you aren’t yet crying inconsolably, you are as callous as the hands of this year’s punt return team.
The Niner Faithful have suffered more than their fair share of busted draft picks (Kwame Harris and Rashaun Woods), impostor coaches (Mike Nolan and Dennis Erickson), and other assorted excuses for failure, but none hurts more than the never-ending mediocrity of the 2005 1st overall pick: Alex Smith. Jimmy Raye will take the blame for this most recent disappointment, but the long-denied truth is that Alex Smith is and has always been the impetus for San Francisco’s demise.
