"So this is another fine mess you got us into Ollie!"
Wow! Another year of waiting for the offseason, again! How many times, right? Well, to all you guys who said Singletary was wrong and that Raye was wrong and that Alex was wrong, you're right. I may not have liked how venomous and rude some were about it, but your're still right. So now what?
This thread is dedicated to what view as Niner fans we have for our future. We now have lots to discuss and keep in mind that we will get soooooo many differences of opinion that we must be civil and see if from all angles and of course, POV. We as a fan base now have to deal with another rebuilding scenario except this time it starts at GM.
So who are likely candidates at GM with experience, respect and power within the executive ranks of the NFL? Will Jed hire a GM to begin with? I believe so. He's too inexperienced as well as Baalke to take on such a role. Therefore, I see Jed already scouring the executive field of play for his new general.
I see this GM firing Singletary, hiring an offensive-minded HC probably in the WCO mold in order to take advantage of all the resources available in the 49ers' archives. So which HC candidate fits that mold? Here's another thing to talk about.
Then who will the HC hire as OC AND DC? I just don't think Manusky will be here next year especially if they clean house. Then this leads us to think are we keeping the 3-4 or going back to the 4-3 base? Who could that new DC be?
On the flip side, who could possibly be the new OC candidate? What ties may he have to our past and would any of these candidates have connections to our past.
Hey, will the GM bring back the past to infuse with the new as I thought Singletary would do, but didn't. Instead, we have our past greats going to our opponents for pep talks. Sorry, I digressed, but you get the picture.
So, here goes...
GM--The only one that I know about is Eric Decosta from Baltimore, Newsome's protoge. Here's a list I found from FLA49er on another website:
I will be researching this list which is a great one to boot. Nice job FLA49er!!!
HC--Of course Gruden for me because of his ties to our WCO past, his charisma, and his experience at HC and play calling.
OC--Gruden and ? Who could he mentor and prime for taking the job from him? I believe Gruden would hire a QB/ass't HC to coach and develop the new QBs.
DC--Keep the 3-4 or bring back the 4-3. Who?
QB--IMO, Alex, Carr AND Smith will be gone. Therefore, I see a new FA, Nate Davis, and a rookie to become our new QB squad. I just don't see Alex staying in anyway. Thank goodness next year's QB draft class is a beauty.
Man, lots to discuss so fire away.
Mods, I didn't see anything like this so I wanted to create a thread to channel the discussions instead of creating fifteen thousand and five threads on ea.
