I'm not so sure about that. Lombardi is very knowledgeable when he speaks about pretty much any topic on the NFLN and he was part of some great organizations. He may not say what you want to hear, but I like that. No BS. His background also gives him a very broad network of people, important people, currently in and out of the league who have been there and done that.
Baalke has pretty much been the GM for the last 9 months and he should have been speaking up and at least suggestion coaching/gameplan/personnel changes when we were 0-5. And if he was? Then what does that mean about the power of his opinion over those who chose to keep things as they were (Jed?). I know I'm probably stretching a bit, but it does make me wonder a lot. As to the draft in which he had a large say in; I would grade it at a C right now. Its still early, but I feel like he reached a bit for Davis and Dixon isnt going to be the next Gore. Williams is supposed to be a gem, but the kid cant stay healthy enough to show us anything. Iupati is the only solid player for where he was taken. The jury is still out on Mays and Bowman.
As to the article. I agree 100%. Jed thinks we are f**king idiots and time and time again he's insulting our intelligence. You MUST be honest in this business cause the truth will come out sooner rather than later. Whether it be via the media or we figure it out by the logic/timeline inconsistencies that always bring the real truth to light.
I really hope this pans out, but I'm thinking my not-a-dime-spent-on-the-49ers-until-they-turn-their-s**t-around strike is going to continue for a while.
