It takes a lot to earn Mike Singletary’s trust, especially at the quarterback position.
After laying into third-stringer Nate Davis last week for his work ethic, Singletary admitted that he feels good about starter Alex Smith, but is not too comfortable with backup David Carr yet.
“When it comes to David Carr, I think David Carr is a guy that I could
grow to feel comfortable with,” Singletary said. “I think he’s a guy that has a good
command of the offense. I think he understands, I just think that he’s
still thinking a lot and he’s still having to get the rhythm and all the
other things, but I think David Carr, I could grow to feel comfortable
So basically Singletary is just praying Alex Smith doesn’t get hurt. There has been some question whether the 49ers will even keep Davis, but we can’t imagine they’d cut him when the team isn’t that comfortable with Carr yet.
