Singletary: 'Let's just move on'

With the Arizona Cardinals coming up Monday night, 49ers coach Mike Singletary says he prefers to focus on the game and move on from spying episode involving the Broncos.

Mike Singletary is apparently the only person who doesn't want to talk about the spying episode involving the Denver Broncos and their fired video director, Steve Scarnecchia.

The San Francisco 49ers coach said Friday that he hadn't heard from Broncos coach Josh McDaniels, wasn't concerned about receiving a call from McDaniels and preferred to move on from the episode.

"You know what, guys? Let's talk about Arizona," Singletary said. "I don't really care about that stuff, seriously. It didn't affect us. Let's just move on."

Broncos executive Joe Ellis said in a conference call that McDaniels had left messages for Singletary to discuss the incident in which Scarnecchia videotaped a 49ers walkthrough in London the day before the teams played at Wembley Stadium on Oct. 31. The 49ers won the game 24-16.

The Broncos and McDaniels each were fined $50,000 by the NFL. McDaniels was fined because he did not report the incident immediately.

Ellis said it was not grounds for firing McDaniels even though the coach did not come forward immediately with information about Scarnecchia. McDaniels reportedly refused to watch the video that Scarnecchia had taken on his own.

Ellis, who said McDaniels "is taking his medicine today," also said that Broncos owned Pat Bowlen intended to call 49ers team president Jed York on Saturday night.

STATUS REPORT: The 49ers listed kicker Joe Nedney (right knee) and cornerback Will James (concussion) as doubtful for Monday night against the Arizona Cardinals. Safety Dashon Goldson (ankle) is questionable and CB Nate Clements (ankle), T Anthony Davis (ankle), TE Vernon Davis (ankle), RB Frank Gore (ankle) and WR Josh Morgan are probable. Only T Joe Staley (broken leg) is out. … Singletary indicated the Barry Sims will start at left tackle in place of Staley.
