After last week's putrid loss to Oakland, this is what Coach Mangini had to say...

There's a lot of things from the game that I am happy with but it comes back to the same issue of you can't have three turnovers and you can't have these self-inflicted wounds, whether they're turnovers or penalties. Those are tough to overcome.

This statement was made with all the fire of someone with a blood pressure of 70 over 30. No change in his tone of voice whatsoever. No emotion.

This is what new head coach Mike Singletary had to say after the Niners' loss to Seattle yesterday.


My favorite part of this is when he takes a breath, gets ready to continue and then stops himself, opening it up to questions. A member of the media core in the room shouts out, "you're doing great." The Niners' beat writers are no doubt all sitting there thinking, "covering this guy is going to be fantastic." It's always more fun to cover someone who has something to say, and it's clear Mr. Singletary has a few things on his mind.

This makes the days of Herm and "you play to win the game" seem tame.

    I KNOW - I heard about this earlier today. I may have to throw some support behind the Niners, so I can more closely follow Singletary's antics.
