Baalke is the OFFICIAL GM

It should have been vice versa.

Jed got that one upside down. Lombardi is much better qualified for the league-wide issues a GM has to deal with. Baalke would have been the logical choice of personnel.

I'm not impressed but I'll withhold final judgement until I see results.

I think Baalke and Harbaugh should be able to work well together---Baalke seems a smart man as is Harbaugh----I think it will work well--if we get Harbaugh signed.

My only concern is that you have 2 "new" guys in their respective positions. Im hoping the learning curve isnt that steep, but if you add a rookie QB to the mix (and chances are this QB will not be Luck), then you're really putting yourself back in "rebuild" mode.

Im hoping that Harbaugh/Baalke see that the team has a "win now" mentality, and go out and sign some key FAs (QB / DB) in the offseason to keep this team in the NFC playoff hunt. If Harbaugh decides he's gonna build this team from the bottom up, then you're looking at another 2-3 years of putting a squad together. Of course, by that time STL and Bradford might become a thorn in our ass.

If harbaugh is signed--he should talk to every Niner player under contract and see what each is about---Harbaugh and Baalke may decide to explode everything and rebuild---or more likely there are some really good pieces here and some weaknesses-----

I think Harbaugh has to like the Niners skill players and O line---the youth and talent that " should" get much better. We have some good players on defense.

We need the QB, pass rusher, secondary help, a # 1 WR and just more speed.
Get ready for Jim Tomsula as HC!

It appears with all of his public statements, Lombardi talked himself out of the job. It is also likely he wanted more than Jed was willing to give. Baalke seems capable. We shall see.

If they are giving Harbaugh some personnel control it makes sense to not have "too many cooks in the kitchen." Get two young football minds in there and see what they can do. IF they get Harbaugh I like it. If not... I'll have my doubts as to wtf Jed has been doing.

RT @Patrick2380: @SI_PeterKing Your thoughts about "reports" that Baalke-Harbaugh can't co-exist? ... A lie. Don't believe it for a second.

You know not to add some optimism here or anything (god forbid) but Baalke did sign Westbrook, La Boy and Ginn. I would say that most of those hires worked out quite well and certainly the calibre of player was different to the Singeltary vision.

I think that may have been the key in the Baalke hiring.

I can't wait until success brings you down!





If Baalke's 2010 draft is what we can expect, then

I want more of that!

Can anyone direct me to the Alex Smith Thread?

I hope you are right. But you know this whole thing was nothing but a show. If it works out, then i'll be happy, just like you.
