I applaud Mike Singletary for trying to clean up Mike Nolan's mess, and although his intentions aren't solely altruistic -- presumably, he eventually wanted to be a head coach -- he has, in just a month's time, instilled a no-puttin'-up-with-the-BS mentality that was lacking under Nolan.
The top sports headlines of the day
That was evident when Singletary ran tight end Vernon Davis off the field after a stupid penalty (and his subsequent apology to the world), although the hard-nosed, physical approach to football hasn't magically made the 49ers a playoff team. (I blame Mike Martz.) Not to worry, though; Singletary has a plan. And a slogan: "49ers Formula for Success."
A formula for success seems like something you might not want to broadcast, but Singletary is a Super Bowl-wearing Hall of Famer. I'm a blogger. So here ya go:
