The 49ers honored former owner Eddie DeBartolo Jr. prior to Sunday’s win over the Seahawks. But nobody will ever confuse this year’s version of the 49ers and those great teams that DeBartolo presided over in the past. Well maybe in one category — winning.
The 49ers are off to a smashing start in 2009, winning their first two games. But it hasn’t been pretty. And that suits coach Mike Singletary just fine. At least for right now.
- “I want it to be more crisp,” Mike Singletary said. “I guess I should say it this way — last week, it was ugly, but I loved it. This week was ugly, but I loved it. It’s going to be a wonderful thing, though, when we can get our rhythm down and get our timing down and have it be clean across the board.”
