The “grave mistake” to discount Cardinals

Posted by Darren Urban on February 25, 2010 – 8:49 am

Here at the combine, 49ers coach Mike Singletary was one of the first men to speak to the media, and he was asked about the idea that the NFC West was for the 49ers to take now that Kurt Warner retired.

Singletary slowly shook his head as the question was finished.

“It is a grave mistake for us as a football team that just because you take Kurt Warner out of the mix, to think it is our division,” Singletary said, building into one of those quotable moments for which Singletary has quickly become famous. “We have to make sure we are not looking at Seattle. We’re not looking at Arizona. I don’t care about those things.

“I was thinking it was our division before you get Kurt Warner out. I was hoping we’d think that last year. Think that way this year. I want them to think that way every year.”

I notice Singletary didn’t mention the Rams.

Singletary learned about his pants

When 49ers coach Mike Singletary was asked just now on the media conference call with Arizona writers about what he learned in his first year as head coach in 2008, there was a slight pause. Then, “I learned you can’t pull your pants down.”

Hilarious, that the famously intense Singletary was willing to make light of what became a national story, when he dropped his pants (underwear was on) to make a point at halftime during his first game. Singletary went on to say the normal stuff, that he learned there were lots of little things that had to be taken care of, but that he was “thankful” to be the 49ers coach.

And, one would assume, that he learned about his pants.
