07:56 AM ET 10.25 | Following the 49ers' sixth loss in seven games to open the season, John and Jed York privately expressed displeasure about the team's coaching to their "inner circle," a team source told Comcast SportsNet on Sunday. "There were some grumbles from the owners about bad coaching," the source said. Coach Mike Singletary was signed to a four-year contract after guiding the 49ers to a 5-4 finish in 2008 as the interim coach. But the 49ers went 8-8 last year, and are off to a 1-6 start this season.

They need a coach, not a motivational speaker.

Let's have a round of cupcakes for some of the coaches. We can have Wade (of course), Mike, Norv, Lovie, Chan and Ken.

Suit up Mike it is the only way you can contribute at this point.

What a mess. I like Singletary, but it's not going to get any better from here...

If Mike was a movie he'd be the Titanic.

They're just now realizing Singletary isn't a coach, he's a motivational speaker. Dude needed to go last year because that rah rah nonsense won't work long in NFL.

Even if they had a truly mediocre coach like Shanahan, billick, fassel they'd be walking away w/ that awful division

Move Josh to SF and Mike to Denver, problem solved.

October 25, 2010  08:44 AM ET

Why are they losing patience?
I don't understand this at all

October 25, 2010  08:50 AM ET

Only about what...2 years after everyone else.

As much as I respect Singletary for what he did as a player and how he apparently conducts himself as a person... he is in over is head as a HC. It's obvious that he just can't get it done because this 49ers team should walk away with this division and right now it looks like they are shooting for a top 5 pick.
