Three strongest interim GM possibilities: Paraag Marathe, Trent Baalke, Tom Gamble. But I believe Jed York will be more & more involved.
As for shooting down my speculation that Jed York could assume more football control... Shoot away, then ask: Who's running the meetings?
So it looks like two of our most educated and talented front office people will be taking up the slack from Scotty's departure. I think this is very critical two years for Jed York and Paraag Marathe.
Maiocco said about 30 minutes ago on KNBR, he does not expect York to hire a GM for another 2 years. The reason? If different people pick up the slack this season, next year there will most likely be a lockout.
I hope these guys can take us to the promise land. Jed always wanted to be like Eddie and Sing always wanted to be like Bill Walsh. So like in Chinese the same character for crisis is opportunity, I hope the men left, who are smart can lead us to the promise land!
