    Singletary- they claim he was wrong for calling out Davis. ????

    Too bad for Davis. Singletary is tired of the overrated crap. Boohoo if former PLAYERS don't like what Singletary did.

    He also dropped his pants. Weird, yes, but he needs to be drastic to fix that mess.

    Mangina- told Favre not to gamble so much.

    Good for Mangina, Favre's actg is getting old. How many times in his career has he just flung it up hoping the receiver goes the other way. Finally somebody told him.

    Cable- The Raiders coach had his team practice touchdown celebrations.

    That is a good idea. That team needs to learn getting 6 is a lot of fun. That team is close to being good, especially in that division with Denv and SD coming back to the pack.

    I am glad to see the coaches stepping up. These teams take on the personality of their coaches. Look at the problems in SD and Dallas. NYJ. These teams are struggling due to poor leadership. Look at the Pats, Giants, Philly. Great leaders, consistently good.

    I actually totally agree with him. This is professional football, not High school, embarrassing a grown man for a dumb penalty is not going to win him much support. Tom Coughlin tried this tough guy act when he first came in and nearly lost the team because of it. The difference ended up being that Coughlin is actually a good coach. Singletary should probably prove he can coach before pulling stunts like this. When I first saw that, followed up by his post game press conference all I thought was that this guy is posturing for a HC position with cheap tricks.

    We won't know if Singletary's moves were good or bad until it plays out both on the field and in that locker room. However, the nonsense about it being wrong to call out these players on the field and/or to send them to the showers is just that.

    I'm sure your vast experience as a Pats fan gives you a better perspective than Bill Cowher.

    Given that Bill Cowher was known to call his players out on the sidelines and spit all over them while doing so, I'd say that you should probably have tried using thought before posting.

    Yes, it's sad when our smarter fans here have more cogent insight than a former NFL coach like ol spittle face.

    Given that a coach "calling his players out on the sidelines" isn't what we're talking about, you're post is the "height of irony."

    Really?

    Perhaps you might try reading posts before attacking them.

    You might try posting something that's relevant to the topic then.

    I did, it's about Singletary's actions towards Vernon Davis, "calling him out" in the press conference and kicking him out of the game, not just "calling him out on the sidelines" as you falsely suggested. I'm sorry you were so confused.

    Yes, that must be why he used the same words I did:

    I must have been so confused as to comment precisely about what the OP wrote. Now, run along and find yourself a clue.

    You wrote some nonsense about being "called out on the sidelines." The "calling out" occurred in the postgame press conference after he kicked him out of the game, and that was what the CBS crew was talking about. More "height of irony" from you, carry on embarrassing yourself.

    The "calling out" happened both on the sidelines and in the press conference.

    Singletary is a motivational type coach and you only get short term success at best with that approach. To have long term success you need a program with a solid foundation of identifying good talent, good coaching on the field, and a way to keep players from getting comlacent. Singletary alone doesn't bring that. His guys will stop listening after a while. His press conference was embarrassing - it was more about him than his team, regardless of what he said. He's a modern Ditka, who was a one-trick pony.

    Singletary shouldn't have called out Davis publicly because then his players won't trust him. If Davis isn't playing the way he needs to, coach him up or get a guy who can and cut or trade Davis - calling him out is a stunt.

    Coaches call out players all the time. Hell, it wasn't all that long ago that Patriots fans had one of the most famous "Caller outers" as their head coach. Parcells and "she" is just one obvious example.

    True, and I don't totally agree with the person that you were responding to either, but I also think that Parcells has been generally overrated as a coach. He was lucky enough to have Belichick around for a long time, and look at what he did without him (not much). Belichick is the opposite extreme, in that he never calls anyone out publicly, and I daresay that he could pretty much write the book on how to properly motivate and manage players.

    Doing it publicly can backfire - notice BB never does it. Just because Parcells did it with Glenn doesn't mean it works.

    You want guys to be confident and trust that if they do what you're asking them to do after putting in all that work, you'll be on their side.
