Is Jim Tomsula worse than the worst head coach of all time?

This is  my Wednesday column. Is Jim Tomsula worse than Mike Singletary? Fair question, even though some (most?) consider Singletary the worst head coach in the history of the NFL. Let’s compare him and Tomsula. Singletary was a linebackers coach before becoming the Niners’ head coach. He was articulate — he could have been a […]

49ers vs. Seahawks, five keys to the game

This is my Friday column. The 49ers seemed dead after they lost to the Seahawks at home Week 7, but the Niners have a pulse. With seven games left, they are three games out of a wild card spot, and they just beat one of the wild card contenders — the 6-3 Falcons. San Francisco […]
