It appears as though stability may finally reign in San Francisco after all. The Hall of Fame linebacker turned coach took over as interim coach of the hapless 49ers in late October. He has since led the team to a 3-3 record following Sunday’s convincing 21-14 win over the Jets (8-5), who are tied for first place in the AFC East. The 5-8 Niners will not be playing any football in January, but it appears as though the franchise, which has failed to make the playoffs since 2002 much less attain an above .500 record in that time span, has finally found a coach that can do some good.
Inheriting a team without a week-to-week quarterback, a sub-par offense, and a less than average defense, Singletary has done an incredible job in just 7 short weeks, leading the team out of the slums of the worst division in football, the NFC West, into a position in which they are poised for a run in the following seasons. Without question, Singletary has shown that he is the man for the job, and will most likely be the leader of this historic Franchise for years to come.
