As we noted a little while ago
, if San Francisco 49ers coach Mike Singletary was being literal-minded when he famously bellowed "I want winners!" then he's likely to be disappointed. A gambling Web site recently pegged the Niners' odds of winning the Super Bowl at 55-to-1; this means that Sigletary has about the same odds of reaching into a shuffled deck of cards (with jokers) and whipping out the ace of spades.
Perhaps this has something to do with the 49ers' quarterback situation. Barring family members, no one took Shaun Hill or Alex Smith in the first eight rounds of a fantasy draft. But, should both QBs be injured (or really stink), the team has declared they will be replaced by a man with no professional experience whatsoever
, 22-year-old Nate Davis.
We ran this bit in our most recent Friday Morning News Quiz
