I LOVE MIKE SINGLETARY!!!
One of the best linebackers ever, a Chicago Bear legend, and now the SF 49'ers head coach. He is a class act all the way around, very old-school, and probably REALLY p*ssing off the wildly overpaid, high maintenance players on his team . Here, he's taking responsibility for the loss in his coaching debut, then taking one Vernon Harris to task - and rightly so, the selfish git! - I just hope it doesn't get him fired:
The AOL headlines today were screaming: "Coach has meltdown, rants at player" which is total bs. He's being very direct and speaking from the heart, but I actually thought he was rather restrained. As anyone who's ever seen "the eyes" when he lined up back in the day could tell you, he looked downright mellow in this press conference.
(P.S.: RIP, Walter Payton - I have spent more than a few teary-eyed hours watching YouTube fan tributes to #34)
