Mike Singletary Unleashes the 13th Man

Knock knock
Who's there?
Mike Singletary's buttocks.

I guess new 49ers coach Mike Singletary never saw the movie Meatballs.

His post-game news conference is already the stuff of legend. Rivaled only by Jim Mora's "playoffs" tirade and Dennis Green's "they are who we thought they were" meltdown.

Here's the thing, this was Singletary's first day as a head coach. I always thought day one was about getting to know your co-workers, orientation, filling out HR forms and whatnot. But it turns Singletary wanted to make an even bigger splash on the first day at the helm. According to the San Francisco Chronicle:

When his team hit the Candlestick Park locker room at halftime trailing the Seahawks 20-3, Singletary called everyone to attention, dropped his pants and pointed to his rear end, to fully illustrate what the coach thought of his players' performance.

As far as motivation goes, it doesn't seem like this one worked too well. The 49ers lost 34-13.

Needless to say, everyone is hoping that the 49ers will cover the spread this week.
