Mike Singletary is a little miffed by the number of calls he deemed "questionable" during San Francisco's loss at Seattle on Sunday.
Enough so that the 49ers coach planned to write a letter to the league office stating his case, something he does regularly but this time it will be longer than usual.
"Every week we send a letter to the league about different calls that are made or not made in a game," Singletary said Monday. "Just to say this week, there will be several paragraphs that will be going to the league."
Now, Singletary insists he doesn't want to sound like a sore loser here — he acknowledges the Niners (5-7) didn't make nearly enough plays to win — but he is going to stick up for his team on the heels of another narrow, heartbreaking road loss in which the 49ers again found ways to beat themselves.
This time, it was 20-17 to the Seahawks. That came after a six-point loss at Green Bay on Nov. 22, an 18-14 defeat at Indianapolis on Nov. 1 and a 24-21 setback at Houston before that.
GOV. CALLS FOR TEBOW PICK: Florida governor Gov. Charlie Crist thinks Tim Tebow could be the answer to the Jacksonville Jaguars attendance problems. Crist said Monday that he's talked with the Jaguars ownership about taking the celebrated Florida quarterback in the NFL draft next April as a means to sell more season tickets and keep the team from moving out of Jacksonville.
COLTS CLOSE TO HOME FIELD: If the Indianapolis Colts beat Denver on Sunday for their record-setting 22nd consecutive regular-season victory, they also will clinch the AFC's top seed and home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
The NFL notified team officials of the scenario on Monday.
