The Yorks destroyed this franchise, and they have also spent a great deal of money to try and right it as well. But to date they have not gotten right.
Lets review shall we:
Firing Mooch (Yorks)
Letting Bill Walsh go (Yorks)
Hiring Dennis Ercikson ( Yorks with Donahue) 50% Yorks
Mike Nolan (Yorks)
Scot McCoulghan (Yorks) For the record in my opinion this was not a disaster Hire
Firing Mike Martz: (Yorks: Jed and Singetary)
Mike Singletary (Yorks: Jed) Disaster
Now they have announced that Trent Baalke is the GM. Wow it takes my breath!! It is not that he is the anti Christ, he MAY be a good man, that works hard, hell he may even be good. But he is not proven, NEVER BEEN THERE NEVER DONE THAT!! He represents every thing that the Yorks continue to do. Inexperience: You did not even interview anyone
Lets say for sh*ts and grin's you get Harbaugh: Who is going to help him? He has no NFL head coaching experience, and their is long line of failed college coaches that were with NFL Franchises as dysfunctional as the niners: (Steve Suprier (Washington), Bobby Patrino (Atlanta), Nick Saben (Miami)) For those of you who are yelling at your computer screens (BILL WALSH, and Jimmy Johnson) well these two are exception especially Walsh who invented the west coast offense. Is Harbaugh that good, hope so but my guess is no.
Jed continues to make the same mistakes: bet on Inexperience, bet on one person to turn this ship around. In fact do not even interview anyone who is currently serving as an NFL executive. (Wow: Really).
Close your eyes and Imagine you are working for a company which has been floundering for years, and now it is on the verge of Bankruptcy, and the CEO announces that after a half hearted executive search there will be no changes in management, just the sales manager is now the executive VP. Does this inspire you?
I have seen 8 years of this show and I believe I know the outcome.
All you York haters are ridiculous, because there is absolutely nothing you can do about the ownership of a team, except to stop supporting that team completely.
It is a waste of time and space for you to whine incessantly about the bad ownership.
It would show some intelligence, however, if despite the sad history of the York ownership, you acknowledge and dare I say it, even applaud the good steps taken by Jed York. Getting Harbaugh is a good step. If Baalke can accomplish it (and I think it is already a done deal), then hiring him was a good step.
If you want credibility when you criticize the team, then you have to also acknowledge the good things it does. Otherwise, you are nothing more than a spoiled whiny complainer.
