You don’t want to overreact to Week One.
That’s why I tried not to go overboard when discussing the 49ers’ meltdown and finger-pointing on Sunday. It’s just one game, even it helped expose some of the organizational faults that also showed up when former G.M. Scot McCloughan was mysteriously dumped before the draft.
Here’s a sign that the leadership in San Francisco saw Sunday’s collapse as more than just another loss: Mike Singletary called for a mandatory team meeting after the squad arrived back from Seattle, according to Raj Mathai of NBC Bay Area.
Tim Kawakami of the San Jose Mercury News says the 49ers are in legitimate “0-1 crisis mode.”
San Francisco has a ton of time to fix their on-field problems, although it won’t be easy against the Saints this week. First, we sense they have to correct some off field issues and playcalling problems.
