The one thing that stands out in my mind after listening to this is how absolutely adamant about the importance of having a "really strong football guy" in charge of running the football side of the operation. Knowing he and Jed talk a lot, I can't see Jed not bringing in that football guy to make the decision on the new coach.
It was also interesting to note that Eddie felt they had far too many people working on the administrative side of things. "Get rid of half of them" seemed to be the message.
Remember when Michael Lewis' agent offered the cryptic quote, "I don't think anyone knows who's in charge over there?" Your point reinforces that. Furthermore, I think with Jed at the front of the organizations business affairs, he's not at team headquarters all the time. I think the main issue is that too many people have his ear, there is no clear chain of command; Baalke is on the road scouting, etc. Jed will be humbled by this criticism, he'll learn. I hope
