This is going to keep me up tonight...
Yeah no doubt.
This has to be some kind of power play ala Mullin / Riley / Nelson with the Warriors

And then McCloughan signs David Carr, and trades Shaun Hill who's was a Singletary favorite. I also think that maybe McCloughan somehow forced Alex Smith into the starting job last season pissing Singletary off. (this is just my speculation).
Eagerly awaiting Michael Silver from yahoo.com because his source is McCloughan.
I'm at a loss for words. He was one of the bright up and coming GM's. I've come on these boards and stood up for him when everyone else wanted his head and if he's leaving for another GM role I'm going to be pissed. I thought the niners finally had a front office to be proud of and now this right before the draft. There must be some type of internal issue which has made him want to give his dream job up for because I don't see him as a person who would leave one GM job for another.
Just got hit by the twittah, what the hell is going on over there? Its either a promotion for Scot or personal family/ health issues. He really seems to love the team so something has to come out ASAP. Where is the info MAIOCCO!!! lol
Why is everyone freaking out? If i remember right a lot of people were calling for McClueless to be fired anyways. I can understand that this is a jacked up move right before the draft but lets face it....I'm just glad he may be gone.
Its funny, back in the day, you NEVER really heard about McVay. Walsh was such a gigantic figure, along with Eddie D, and the players that McVay was able to do his job in relative anonymity. Walsh is credited with all the great moves (drafting 3 rookies in the secondary in 1981, bringing along Joe slowly while Deberg / Hofer were the human targets, getting Hacksaw, trading for Fred Dean, Russ Francis, the 1986 Draft, the Young trade, giving up nothing for Wendell Tyler, etc).
McClueless, for those that know him lol, has been scrutinized, hypersentized, and picked over every move like a buzzard. Maybe he doesn't like the scrutiny that comes with today's NFL. Today's NFL GM wears a bullseye more so than any other time. Even in SEA, he was second fiddle to Holmgren and could deflect the fire.
