To people supporting the Baalke hire, let me ask you. If we were to go out and get the director of player personnel from the Bills, Panthers, Broncos, etc. would you still think that was OK? Because what we're doing to fix this team is getting the director of player personnel from a bad team. It's normally guys from NE, Baltimore, NYG, etc etc that get these jobs...not guys from the worst teams in the league. But hey, his first draft was brilliant, because you know, so many of these rookies have been great for us. And if you think rookies don't make a difference, go check out Cleveland's draft, or KC's draft, this year.
Pretty hard to ignore all the truth in this post. Basically it's the same thing they did when hiring Sing. Instead of really cleaning house and getting an experienced guy they just hired the previous guy's protege. I have faith that Baalke if he is the guy can do a better job, but at the same time this looks like a replay of the same bad movie.
