This is a bold move, and one an organization doesn't make without leadership at the ownership level. York presumably saw this as a rare opportunity to seize upon a championship window. Sticking with Smith would have been more comfortable. The 49ers might wind up going that route, anyway. They could have some damage control to do if that is the case. But nothing ventured, nothing gained. Randy Moss' addition was another move with the short term in mind. --Mike Sando.
The boy through his childhood breathed 49er ball. The proof is coming out. This has been the best 14 months of Niner ball in quite some time and he's responsible as much as anyone for it:
Who hires Harbaugh
Be the forefront for new Stadium
Baalke waits on 2011 FA
Brings in "key" pieces to team and org
Baalke drafts 2012 well
Harbaugh wins Division
Harbaugh takes team o NFC Champ
Stadium on task for 2014
And now, the chase for Manning...as a Ninja! Harbaugh and Roman works out Manning BEFORE everyone else. Then, send team Dr.s for physical.
The choices Jed York has made as CEO transformed this franchise back to the respect it deserves.
The boy...excuse me, young man has some serious skills.
Put that in your pipe n smoke it! It's the best day of the year to go Green!
Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!
Jed York in just 3-4 years time has completely changed the look of the franchise. This kid is going to be a good owner for a long time. You don't hear "the Yorks are cheap" anymore, and it's because of Jed. Much respect for this guy.
