Remember the Mike Singletary Stare?
Well, there's a good chance we'll be seeing plenty of it Sunday when Mr. Intensity coaches his first game as the San Francisco 49ers head coach.
The Seahawks are now a factor in the NFL's shocking news of the week. Mike Nolan and his sideline suits are out; Singletary and his … well who knows what he has to offer as a head coach … are in. Finally, an opponent with more worries than the Seahawks.
This ought to be very interesting.
As someone who grew up admiring Singletary, I hope he fares well. As someone who's tired of covering losing football, I'm wondering if the Seahawks will use the 49ers' turmoil to their advantage and get their second victory of the season.
Oh, and that's two NFC West head coaches axed in the first half of this season. In addition, Mike Holmgren is walking away at the end of this season.
Coming soon: Ken Whisenhunt, dean of NFC West coaches.
