As if Mike Singletary wasn’t busy enough trying to turn around a 2-6 San Francisco squad, he has added to his long list of duties. He’s determined to find out who leaked the word that he dropped his britches during his initial halftime speech as the 49ers’ interim coach.
“It’s unfortunate,” Singletary said on an interview with ESPN Radio 1000 in Chicago, per’s Mike Sando. “We will find out who is leaking information out of the locker room because what happens in the locker room should be sacred and stay there.”
The odds of Singletary identifying the locker room leaker are awfully long. There were probably at least 70 eye witnesses to his motivational mooning. Odds are more than a few of those folks found the incident interesting enough to share with others.
And I seriously doubt anybody who saw Singletary show his ass would admit to his face that they passed on the word that he dropped his pants. Singletary might be best off just dropping the whole thing.
[Editor’s note: We can only imagine what Singletary might do in the locker room to illustrate the point that players should not be “leaking” information.]

    Not since Beavis has anyone made so many people feel the wrath of the almighty bungholio!

    Singletary will force a tea-bagging on the perpetrator, if found.

    “Singletary might be best off just dropping the whole thing.”
    So would you.

  4. powerte says: Oct 31, 2008 3:24 PM

    Maybe instead of investigating “Pantsgate” Samurai Mike should be working on his WR’s dropped passes or his QB’s drops to the ground

    “Turn around a 2-6 San Francisco squad”? That would take actual coaching. What with Singletary kicking players off the sidelines, having pregame chats with dead coaches, dropping trou at halftime, and now trying to find locker room moles, how the heck can he have time to actually coach?

  6. The Jimmy says: Oct 31, 2008 3:29 PM

    He just needs to let it go.

  7. k-new says: Oct 31, 2008 3:30 PM

    I think that he should be more worried about who has heard the rumor….I mean come on…a guy…in San Fransisco…dropping his pants in front of a whole room full of guys. Yep, I’d be worried about who has heard about this little pep talk.

  8. Lawstsoul says: Oct 31, 2008 3:31 PM

    The headline suggested that this was going to be a “George Costanza” story

    Singletary might be better of just “dropping the whole thing.” Was that an intended or unintended double entendre, Florio?

    I’d be more worried about who, in the neighborhood, might have heard about this coaches halftime show. I mean come on….it’s San Fransisco….a guy…dropping his pants in front of a room full of guys, dressed as football players no less. I would be a little worried if I were Coach Singletary.

  12. TCLARK says: Oct 31, 2008 3:36 PM

    Is he gonna pee all over the team to demonstrate what a “leaker” can do to a locker room?

  13. empty13 says: Oct 31, 2008 3:37 PM

    leaker = cancer

  14. TCLARK says: Oct 31, 2008 3:38 PM

    I always thought you where crazy, but now I can see your NUTZ!

  15. falcoholic says: Oct 31, 2008 3:39 PM

    Now, what player would have an axe to grind with Singletary? Surely not Vernon Davis…

  16. fightingirish says: Oct 31, 2008 3:40 PM

    That’s ESPN Radio 1000, not 100.

  17. Cheese Wiz says: Oct 31, 2008 3:40 PM

    “Best off just dropping the whole thing…” I’m sure pun intended? Tell Florio to give you a raise. Damn funny stuff!

  18. racer-x says: Oct 31, 2008 3:42 PM

    “Singletary might be best off just dropping the whole thing.”
    First his pants and now you want the whole thing?

  19. LiveNBreath Football says: Oct 31, 2008 3:43 PM

    Oh dear. I really wanted Coach Singeltary to do well in his first HC job. But, he is turning into Captain Bligh. This will not turn out well.

  20. arosen36 says: Oct 31, 2008 3:45 PM

    maybe mike singletary leaked all over the floor when he pulled his pants down

  21. pyroplastic says: Oct 31, 2008 3:53 PM

    I’m feeling sexually harassed just reading about the “incident” . Maybe someone will have the, errrrrr, balls to file a lawsuit.

  22. rspringer says: Oct 31, 2008 3:54 PM

    I think this will work out perfectly. Dude has been coach for one game, got blowed out (thanks Emmitt), dropped his drawers at halftime, called out one of his players very publicly, and now he’s paranoid and determined to find the leaker.
    Al Davis, please hire this man.

  23. zedrational says: Oct 31, 2008 3:57 PM

    Someone in a locker room dropped his pants and exposed his boxers? Gasp. I’m shocked. Most of the guys in my neighborhood walk around in public with their pants around their knees pretty much all the time.
    Must be a slow news week.

  24. spyboots says: Oct 31, 2008 4:07 PM

    What? He thought no one would tell?

  25. banks says: Oct 31, 2008 4:09 PM

    Leaker’s profile: athletic tight-end with 4.3 speed who smelled like Irish Spring during the 2nd half of last week’s game.

  26. savagenation says: Oct 31, 2008 4:16 PM

    If you’re a guy, you DON’T want to drop your pants in SF!

  27. Hollywood Wags says: Oct 31, 2008 4:25 PM

    Maybe it’s one of the cancers that did it!
    Find those cancers Mike!

  28. nerdmann says: Oct 31, 2008 4:27 PM

    Ok, calling out Vernon Davis is cool. Send a message. NOW he’s going over into Brad Childress territory.

  29. spanky07 says: Oct 31, 2008 4:28 PM

    This is nowhere near as gay as the Sunday Countdown where Jaws gets behind Ton Jackson for a “snap” and the “WR” goes into a slow motion pattern to be pawned by Ditka.

  30. Devils Advocate says: Oct 31, 2008 4:36 PM

    Very disturbing pattern developing here for Singletary. Can you imagine the reaction if it had been Belichek.
    You know this day and age that could be considered sexual harrasment.

  31. MobileSaint says: Oct 31, 2008 4:48 PM

    Having met him (along with my son 11yo) at the Senior Bowl, I can tell you that Nolan and Martz are great guys and Singletary isn’t worth spitting on!

  32. omegalh says: Oct 31, 2008 5:02 PM

    Singletary is already a train wreck. He is acting like Ditka(the NOs version).

  33. MikeinSF says: Oct 31, 2008 5:10 PM

    Duh – Its BRYANT JOHNSON – An Arizona Beat Reporter leaked the story and had a source. Is it that hard to figure out it was Bryant Johnson? You know, the guy that played for the Cards the last 5 seasons and had a good relationship with the beat reporter that broke the story. The guy that was benched for a rookie and is under-preforming on a 1 year contract. Yeah – that guy. BRYANT JOHNSON is the Leak. Go get’em Mikey.

  34. MikeinSF says: Oct 31, 2008 5:13 PM

    Bryant Johnson, Bryant Johnson Bryant Johnson, Bryant Johnson Bryant Johnson, Bryant Johnson Bryant Johnson, Bryant Johnson Bryant Johnson, Bryant Johnson Bryant Johnson, Bryant Johnson Bryant Johnson, Bryant Johnson

  35. obamasdaddy says: Oct 31, 2008 5:39 PM

    “to illustrate the point that players should not be “leaking” information.
    You should extend that to “bureau reporters” who leak too. Like the one that leaked to you.

  36. Pantherfan105 says: Oct 31, 2008 7:45 PM

    Singletary’s 100% right in what hes doing. You need drastic measures for a drastic change. If he needs to kick half the team off the sideline and play with 22 guys more power to him.
    I wish Fox would of sent David Carr to the locker room last year to fix his gloves and check to see if his hair was “pretty enough” in the same fasion Vernon Davis was sent to the locker room. Frankly I wish more coaches in the NFL had the balls to pull such drastic moves.

  37. Topher says: Nov 1, 2008 9:19 AM

    If you drop your pants in front of a roomful of people for any reason at all, you are never 100% right.

  38. cheeseweasel says: Nov 1, 2008 12:27 PM

    Searching for a locker room leaker? How bout a dorm room dumper?
