Note the following quotes from Inside Look with Mike Singletary presented by Cadillac premiering Friday, November 16 on Comcast SportsNet:

SINGLETARY on the 85 Bears failing to repeat as Super Bowl champions:

I wouldnt say that were the greatest team of all time, simply because we didnt have the wherewithal to bring it together againand get focused again. We were the immature brats that won the Super Bowl and just did not have sense enough to realize that there were traps set all around uspulling us apartand having us look at each other and become jealous here and envious thereand the thing that we had that was so special was taken away, and no one really took it. We gave it away. And its not just the players, its Coach Ditka, its Buddy (Ryan), its all of us.

SINGLETARY on his volatile rookie season relationship with defensive coordinator Buddy Ryan:

I hated him. I could not stand him. I mean, he made me sit next to him in a meeting, I turned like this (shifting himself in chair) because I just couldnt...I couldnt even look at him.

SINGLETARY on his menacing on-field stare before the snap of the ball:

People ask me were you trying to intimidate the other team? No, not at all. The reason my eyes got big was simply because I was trying to see the whole field. Its as simple as that.

SINGLETARY on his experience as head coach of the 49ers, including his infamous post-game meltdown involving tight end Vernon Davis:

Im not a politically correct guy...Im not. I believe that if decisions have to be made, and theyre on my table to make, I got to make decisions. Did I go about it the right way? Did I do it the right way? I would say that my emotions at that time were a bit immaturebutI think everything that happened in that experience was for (Davis)and its what he needed. If I had to do it over again, I would do it different.
