08:05 AM ET 01.04 | Fans who thought the 49ers were fighting some bad energy around Mike Singletary may have been on to something. With Singletary in charge, the 49ers often looked like a team that played tight and were afraid to make mistakes. "I think we did play tight," Vernon Davis said. "Guys were a little scared. They were more worried about coach Singletary getting on them than playing football." Interim coach Jim Tomsula made it his mission last week to get the 49ers to have fun. The 49ers responded with a 38-7 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

If they were, THEY'D be in the playoffs instead of a fraud team with a sub .500 record.

No kidding. Looks like Ol' Mike should have taken them to Mamby Pamby land so they can get some self confidence!

Seriously, if he was my coach, I'd choke slam him.

Singletary would do well with a mentally tough team. These 49ers are FAR from it.

Professional athletes were scared of their coach coming down on them? Now they are having fun and responding by beating the Cardinals. Not exactly a statement win. It's the freaking Cardinals.
