News, notes and reader questions about the San Francisco 49ers

For the second time in his life, Mike Singletary has broken through. The first, of course, occurred in 1985 when a mustachioed "Samurai Mike" starred in the Super Bowl Shuffle. Lately, a Singletary look-alike (except not really) has been featured in a skit on "The Late Show with David Letterman." So far, there have been two skits featuring a Singletary character. "I haven't seen the second one," Singletary said today. "I've seen the first one. I'm still trying to figure it out." You're not the only one, Mike ....

As for that collision yesterday between Mark Roman and Josh Morgan, Singletary said the team was following protocol as far as holding them out of practice. He said that trainers wanted to make sure neither had any nausea or dizziness today. Both players were fine, and there appear to be no lingeriong effects from what was apparently a doozy of an impact.

"I didn't see it," Singeltary said. "I just heard it. It was a heck of a collision."
