The San Francisco 49ers lost to the previously winless Panthers in Charlotte, 23-20, on Sunday, and with a trip to London coming up, things don't look too bright for the future of the franchise's season.

Don't tell that to Mike Singletary, though -- he thinks they can still make the playoffs!

"There's no doubt in my mind, somehow, someway, we will regroup and we will keep fighting and we will make a season of it," Singletary said. "And I still believe we can go to the playoffs. I still believe we can get those things done. We just have to get the right things in place and go from there."

Mmmm-hmmm. That's a pleasantly optimistic scenario. But as everyone's covered, they Niners are in the NFC West, and anything's kind of fair game in that division, although with the Seahawks, Cardinals and Rams all having a few more wins than anyone expected.

Plus, perhaps Singletary should delay the trip across the pond and have a little chat with the last coach (John Fox) forced to use David Carr as a starter on an extended basis -- in 2007, Carr and the Panthers appeared to have a shot at the playoffs, and they were 4-2 headed into the their bye. Then Carr turned into, well, himself, and Carolina dropped five straight and seven of their final 10 games.

Back then, though, Fox wasn't facing the same pressure as Singletary, because his job was safe. A report from Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com indicates things aren't so simple on Sunday that owners John and Jed York weren't too thrilled with their coach.

"There were some grumbles from the owners about bad coaching," a source near the "inner circle" of the Yorks told Maiocco.

That's perfectly plausible, given that the Niners, a would-be playoff team, look like perhaps the worst team in the NFL relative to expectations; the Panthers showed some signs of life just as they did in 2009, the Browns flipped the defending champs at home Sunday, and at least the Bills are giving it the old college try with their depleted roster.

The Niners, on the other hand, keep getting beat (sometimes badly) by inferior opponents, and that's a clear-cut sign that their coach isn't cut out for his job.

Everyone knows Singletary is more motivational speaker than coach.  But that only takes you so far.  He was a winner as a player, but has not been as a coach.  His style is TOO conservative, and a lot of talent is going to waste.  There's no way the 49ers will ever be a winner with him as their coach. Hence, they are better suited to make a head coaching change at this time.

What I've noticed is that Singletary is a great motivator..... and it ends there. His coaching ability is not up to par for the NFL. It's unfortunate because he was on the verge of turning this franchise back to respectability, but when you have this much talent on your roster and are 1-6, there's no excuses. You can only talk the talk for so long, Mike. You've got to walk the walk at some point. It's just unfortunate the only walk Mike will be doing is walking out of the dressing room after he's packed up his things.
