Alex Smith still hates Mike Singletary

4 years ago

This Sunday, when the 49ers visit the Vikings, the main storyline will be Randy Moss` return to the place where it all began, where he built his brand by terrorizing defensive backs for his first seven years.

But a big subplot to that story will revolve around Vikings linebackers coach Mike Singletary. Once upon a time, in 2010, Singletary was the head coach of QB Alex Smith. To cut a long story short, the two did not get along very well. Singletary wanted a tougher quarterback, and Smith wanted someone who knew what the fuck they were doing.

In the end, the 49ers booted Singletary and replaced him with the divine intervention known as Jim Harbaugh, but Smith seems to not have forgotten so quickly. On Wednesday, Smith was asked about what kind of "legacy" Singletary left behind. He paused for a moment before answering,

"That`s a better question for someone else. I`m not thinking about anyone`s legacy right now. For us, we were all here, the guys that were and we didn`t get it done. That`s kind of the bottom line."

"We had expectations for ourselves and didn`t get it done and it was on all of us," he continued. "Not sure about any legacy or anything like that."

As they say, bitterness is not very becoming. Oh It also causes you to do dumb stuff, like try to run up the score and show your old coach that you are winning material.

But nah, Smith just doesn`t seem like the revenge type...
