Before he fired Sing I woulda given him 20%. After the firing, I'd still only give em 30%, because it was such an obvious move, and he self admittedly could have made that move sooner. I gave em 40% just because his mom still thinks he's cool and that's always worth an extra 10% in my book 1 half good off-season could sky rocket his rep around here though. We're a pretty fickle bunch, I figure.
I say around 50-60%. He now realizes the mistake in hiring Singletary. He seems to understand the need to build an organization properly. It is all just words until the coaches and such are hired. If he can manage to bring in a good staff and start getting the Niners some wins, his rating could easily go up in the next year or so.

Here's a noble thought. John and Denise York outright gives the team to Jed York (not just let him run the operations), then Jed partners up with uncle Eddie where both have 50% ownership of the team.
Money then would really be no object because we know that Eddie would want the best personnel that he can get.
You don't get points for doing the obvious (firing Singletary). You get points for doing something with positive, lasting impact. He hasn't done any of that yet.
My hope is that he has learned some lessons and will listen to Uncle Eddie. I like the idea of placing an emphasis on getting a quality GM but to say that MUST come before getting the right coach is not necessarily the right approach.
