Mike Singletary is feeling extra grumpy

Earlier this week there was an entertaining controversy in San Francisco pertaining to miscommunication with the play-calling. In case you don’t know the story, the long and short of it, Niners head coach Mike Singletary said there were problems with Alex Smith’s headset at Seattle; Smith said everything was fine and that the plays need to come in quicker.

After this, Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports wrote that offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye is the primary source of the communication problems.

All the speculation and drama surrounding the Niners is not sitting well with head coach Mike Singletary. Take a look at the transcript of this tense television interview Singletary had with KPIX Sports Director Dennis O’Donnell. (And, good news: if you want to watch the interview, you can click here.)

Singletary: “What’s the truth? Jimmy has been in the league 33 years. He’s been a coordinator for longer than you’ve been doing this.

How does a guy be a coordinator and be successful all those years and not be good at what he does? That does not even make sense to me, the question. I don’t mean to be disrespectful but it doesn’t make any sense, the question you’re asking.”

O’Donnell: I’m basing it on what was said in the Yahoo article …

Singletary: But don’t base a man’s entire career on a dang-gum Yahoo commercial.

O’Donnell: That’s the point I’m trying to make because as I said …

Singletary: The point I’m trying to make is I don’t want to talk about the Yahoo deal. It really pisses me off now that I sit here and think about it. We just talked today and I had a press conference today. I don’t want to talk about the Yahoo thing anymore. Whoever said it, I don’t care who said it, it’s over. I want to move forward.

O’Donnell: So there’s no truth to it?

Singletary: I want to move forward.

O’Donnell: Let’s talk about Alex moving forward into Monday night. In situations where maybe he’s not getting a play by a certain amount of time, if he can see …

Singletary: Alex will be fine Monday night. Watch the game and you will see that Alex will be fine. I don’t want to talk about time. I don’t want to talk about clock. I don’t want to talk about any of that. I want to talk about New Orleans if you want to talk about that.

O’Donnell: I’m alluding to …

Singletary: I want to talk about New Orleans if you want to talk about that.

O’Donnell: OK. Let’s talk about trying to stop Drew Brees.

Singletary: We will not try to stop Drew Brees. We will stop Drew Brees. Next question.

O’Donnell: Let’s talk about trying to move the ball against the New Orleans defense …

Singletary: We will not try to move the ball against the New Orleans defense. We will move the ball and we will score.

O’Donnell: Obviously there’s a sense of frustration that’s built …

Singletary: No, there’s not a sense of frustration. I’m just being honest. I had a conversation about this early today and I came in here ready to talk about New Orleans and we get all this other. I’m just tired of talking about that. I’m ready to go. I am excited, I’m ready to go, I just finished talking to my team, I’m ready to go. We can talk about New Orleans, let’s go, but I don’t want to talk about all this other stuff.

You gotta love that no nonsense approach about Mike Singletary.  I don't get why would anyone expect any losing coach not to be grumpy I hope Brad Childress is grumpy about losing to the Saints so we can move on forward. I ain't mad at Singletary I actually think they will make noise this season good luck to the Niners I wish they have a great season I like Mike Singletary we need an intense coach like he is in Minnesota.
