Say what you want about Mike Singletary, but he certainly motivates men. Currently, he has a 4-4 record, serving as an interim head coach. He has won over a locker room that Mike Nolan evidently lost.
If you watch a San Francisco game now, you won't see a team that lays down because their playoff dreams are crushed. You will see a team that plays every down like its their last. You will see a young QB name Shaun Hill making gutsy plays.
Yes, the 49ers have a long way to go, but with Singletary behind the wheel, can it be that bad? Actually, it could be a great thing. The players are supposedly now rallying to keep Singletary as Head Coach.
Mind you, this is after he dropped his pants and displayed his rear end at halftime. This is after telling his most talented tight end to "hit the showers."
Yes, this is even after stating that he wanted to choke his QB after a game against the Rams. The players see something in Singletary that many cannot. They see his desire to win.
This desire has become contagious around the San Francisco locker room. If the 49ers finish their season out strong, it will be hard not to bring Singletary back as head coach. He may not win Coach of the Year, but he has definitely won over a locker room in San Francisco.
