GM McCloughan (possibly) stepping down????

McLoughlan = Irish

Today = St. Paddy's Day

Cruel Irish Joke?

seriously WTF.

Maybe MM had one too many green beers?

LOL the green dye messed him up
You can bet the CJ Spiller, Earl Thomas, Mike Iupati fans are rejoicing....but the Taylor Mays bandwagon is probably slowing down.

I'm beginning to think that this has been in the works for a while now. Think about it, by most accounts Singletary has been making calls and going on scouting trips. Singletary has been taking a more active role, not McCloughan. If this is the result of a family matter, I can understand that. If not, this is very odd timing!!!


If Scot goes I hope his s**tty incompetent brother gets fired from the scouting squad to boot!

Word
man, f**k Scot McCloughan
I'm cool now. But who is going to run s**t?

WHO?
The best thing at this point is probably to make Singletary GM. Hopefully, the scouts who help setup the draft board stay until after the draft.

Good, and here's why:

#1. McCloughan doesn't come from the background of a vertical offense. He comes from WCO teams. Seattle and Green Bay as the top recent teams he's worked for before the 49ers.

#2. McCloughan was given GM powers because Nolan was doing bad as a head coach and he may have left for other opportunities. He was in a position of high leverage to earn that GM title.

#3. People credit McCloughan for drafting Gore and Willis, but it actually occurred under Nolan's tenure as the lead guy for personal decisions.

#4. Under McCloughan's power, we've drafted the following players in the first three rounds:

2008
R1: Kentwan Balmer (Backup, potential bust)
R2: Chilo Rachal (borderline starter, needs to step up his game)
R3: Reggie Smith (Backup, injured plauged, potential bust)

2009
R1: Michael Crabtree (no brainer pick, good job)
R2: Traded Away
R3: Glen Coffee (bust in his first year, backup player to Gore for right now)

And our free agency activity hasn't really been stellar outside of Justin Smith and Takeo Spikes. You got guys like DeMetic Evans, Brandon Jones, and now David Carr to secure depth at the 3rd or 2nd string level. That doesn't really make a 7-9 team jump to 10-6.

#5. The trading of Shaun Hill and the treatment of the player was basically the nail in the coffin for him. You take a player that is loved in the locker room and admired by the coaching staff, and trade him...without even notifying him directly. That's classless and Nolanesque.

In order for teams to be effective, owners must trust management, management must trust players, and players must believe in the other two. This is how the Patriots did it, and this is how the 49ers did it in the 80s and 90s.

With McCloughan's track record and inactivity in free agency and the draft to give Singletary a fair shot in 2010, while teams like Seattle and Arizona are gearing up to pose another threat for the NFC West crown, this is a necessary move.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, jackass.


OR

The 49ers are pulling a Milton on him, and moving him in the basement of the headquarters.

Or MM is trying to punk us. I forgot about that

Good post Geek, I guess that's why they call you Geek

Damn right. You have no idea how much vag i get from all of these well thought out posts on a football web forum in my sweat pants.
Brian Billick

Ravens HC while Sing was a coach with the Ravens

Former coach under Walsh

He actually has credibility in the league and if he calls with a trade idea, the other team has to take him seriously. With Scotty, they laugh and say "go ask your mommy"

Just saying
if true, maybe he wants to spend more time with his family.

I think that would be horrible and worse
Its fun to joke around and even speculate, but on a serious note...


There better be a good ass reason on either side. Unless there is a crisis or the Niners and Scott have been planning this for a while and the Niners have a back up plan, I am going to f**kIN EXPLODE....KABOOM BIATCH KABOOM....
