I think Saunders was a finalist when Davis decided on Bill Callahan. Ugh.
I hear that Ron Rivera and Pat Hill are also on the interview list at some point in time. Davis will drive us nuts dragging this out until mid February. I just hope we can choose the guy we really want this time. Get the lead out Al and let';s get this thing going. Although I don't think we can interview Rivera until after the Bears are done.
I'm not so sure that Singletary doesn't have a shot. He's a former player so I think he'll relate well with today's player. Al loves players who have had success and since Singletary is a HOF'er, he'll demand his players' respect. IMO, his only drawback (through Al's eyes) is that he's a defensive coach. Since he's a minority, he'll have plenty of teams knocking on his door to meet the Rooney rule requirements. If we're one of the last team's to interview him, he will probably have his interview skills polished enough that he may knock Al's socks off.
I like Singletary, but I don't think Al would go after him. I still believe that Al gets Saunders. Think about it, Saunders would love to get back at the Chiefs for not giving him the head coaching job so he would be able to play them twice a year, he also knows the AFC west pretty damn good, he is a good offensive mind, he has worked with Holmes, L Johnson, Gonzales, Bruce, Holt and others. That seems like a coach Al Davis would go after.
