With Scot M. there is lots of hate on the WZ. But to be fair he has been terrible at picking linemen (both O and D) but he has been sometimes good at other postions. The exception is Staley.
Crabtree, Gore, Willis and VD come to mind for example. And signing Clements and Justin Smith were good signings.
The guy hasn't been as terrible as some on the WZ would lead you to believe. He's probably been about average. He could improve a lot on line picks.
Also agree. It's rare that a GM makes ALL the right moves. We've made some good acquisitions in the past couple of years, but we've also made some errant ones.
If McC made ONLY bad decisions, or the majority bad, then we have something to worry about. Let's just put it this way: The Raiders and Redskins have done a horrible job in past years. The Niners don't even compare to those horrible franchises.
