Default Mike Leach owes Mangini an apology???

(Yeah, I'm doing this just to rile up the masses)

http://www.nologoneeded.com/no_logo_...n-apology.html

After the NFL Draft last April, Texas Tech coach Mike Leach had some harsh words for the new Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini.

It was reported Mangini and the Browns thought Texas Tech wide receiver Michael Crabtree was an "diva" when he visited Berea before the draft. As we all know, the Browns did draft two wide receivers, but neither were named Crabtree.

After the draft, Leach ripped Mangini to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.

"Michael Crabtree has been more successful as a receiver than that guy has a coach at this point," Leach said. " ... Part of the reason is he's (Crabtree) too shy to be like that."

Said Leach: "My definition of a diva is someone who's loud and self-absorbed. Michael Crabtree is the furthest thing from loud that I've seen."

[...]Leach described Crabtree as the "ultimate team player who would serve the 49ers well." As for Mangini? "Let's see how all those non-divas do up in Cleveland this year," Leach said.

Mangini took the high road.

"I can tell you I had a good visit with Michael,'' Mangini said during the rookie camp last May. "I'm really happy he got drafted where he got drafted and he'll have a great career. And I said that after his visit. Nothing's changed. Nothing changed from that point. Nothing will change two or three months from now.''

No, nothing changed between Leach and Mangini except, well, Crabtree is acting like a diva.

Crabtree was drafted No. 10 by the San Francisco 49ers and has yet to agree to a contract. According to ProFootballTalk.com who cites an anonymous source:

"Agent Eugene Parker is telling the 49ers that Crabtree will sit out the season re-enter the draft in 2010, unless the team gives Crabtree what he wants.

Of course, what Crabtree specifically wants isn't known, since Parker (as multiple sources tell us) still hasn't made a proposal."

How credible that is remains to be seen. Usually you have to take what ProFootballTalk.com with a grain of salt. Still, Crabtree's holdout for whatever reasons speaks to his "diva" character Mangini so accurately pegged

Mike Singletary deserves this. He's the one who wanted Crabtree.

I can't wait to see him fail as 49ers coach.

Leach didn't verbally go after Singletary (smart move on his part...as Singletary would have torn him apart. )

In a battle of wits, Mike Singletary is unarmed.

Bulls don't make great coaches. Neither does Mike Singletary.
