That title says a lot considering he was a cerebral assassin at MLB for the Bears in the 1980s.
Mike is the current head coach of the 49ers and, besides dropping his pants in the locker room, did a pretty good job of getting the Niners back to respectability.
However, he appears to be at it again. Mike and company are going into their first NFL draft and quarterback has to be a priority for this team. They will be looking at guys like Stafford and Sanchez in the 1st Round and possibly a guy like Pat White or Graham Harrell in the middle rounds.
Stafford is by far the number one QB in the entire group. He had a successful career, led his team to bowl games and did well in the combine. He is probably the only “can’t miss” prospect at this position in the draft.
Singletary was questioned about their interest if Detroit takes a pass on Stafford in favor of an OT or LB. Apparently Stafford wouldn’t submit to a psychological profile for the team which led to this comment by Singletary.
“If you’re going to look at drafting a guy in the first round, and you’re going to pay him millions of dollars, and asking him about a divorce about his parents, if that’s going to be an issue, uhhh, then you know what, maybe he doesn’t belong here.”
So let me see, a guy doesn’t want to talk about his family and now he can’t be a successful NFL player. Did Mike really just say that?
Who really cares what happened in a kids youth? I have been on numerous interviews in my career and never did the “would you take a psychological profile” ever come up.
With jobs like FBI, police, psychiatrist and even teacher taking a psycological test or meeting with a doctor might be relevent. But, do you think a QB from Georgia would fail grasp an NFL playbook and toss a ball down a field because he was upset that Daddy left Mommy years ago? He scored threw the roof on the WonderBread Test. He is a very smart guy. He played successfully in the SEC and is a great character guy. Stafford has everything working in his favor. However, according to the Niners, don’t you dare come here if you won’t sit down with our shrink. Really?
San Fran fans, if this is any indication of how things are going to go around the Bay Area this fall I think you are in for another rough season.
