Now, Singletary has done it again. He was asked by Dennis O'Donnell of San Francisco's CBS 5 about a recent article by Yahoo! Sports' own Jason Cole which said that tension between offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye and certain players was mounting because Raye was, according to sources who spoke with Cole, having trouble getting the right plays to quarterback Alex Smith in time.
This was consistent with what I read off the post-game quote sheets from the press box at Seattle's Qwest Field, which is where I watched the Seahawks beat the 49ers, 31-6, to open the 2010 season for both teams. Cole's report spoke to more glaring and wide-ranging problems - the kinds that would be embarrassing to a coach like Singletary, who is more a motivator than a strategist, and therefore benefits far more from a "we're all rowing in the right direction" impression. So, when O'Donnell asked him about Cole's report, Singletary went off to a degree.
