A few days after the 49ers hired Mike Singletary as their permanent head coach, he discussed his priorities in finding players for next year: another quarterback, an offensive lineman, a pass rusher and possibly a safety. A lot of people who watched the team over the last few years would add: a dynamic wide receiver and a quick, young cornerback, plus two more sturdy linemen, one for each side of the ball. But overall, Singletary probably had the number right. He might have cited four spots in the lineup because listing any more would have constituted a no-confidence vote for the team that went 5-4 under him, and 5-2 after a rough transition from Mike Nolan’s departure. More likely, though, his instincts are sound.
