Great to see a coach doing what he did! About time a coach kicks some prima donna's a*s*s instead of kissing it like most coaches do now a days. Keep it up Mike! Go old school on these guys. Show them how it is supposed to be done. I might become a 49'er fan instead of watching Lovie Smith and what he calls coaching.

Too bad the Bears don't hire ex-players, THEY SHOULD! The last ex-Bears player as part of the Bears coaching team was Rivera. Bears don't want ex-players as coaches and they're missing out big-time.
The Bears have a shaky track record hiring real players. Why would we expect them to hire a talented coach.

Mike Singletary was born to coach. That guy is tough as nails, yet is also a great guy underneath it all. He's going to make a fantastic head coach, no doubt about it. I actually ran into him at a mall in the Chicago suburbs many years ago. I went up to him just for a handshake, and that look... holy crap that look in his eyes made me sorry immediately. He's the most focused and intimidating guys I've ever met. Still, he was polite and shook my hand. I knew better than to waste any more of his time, though. Those eyes... oh dear LORD his eyes are intense.
