SD, what is it about the front office that is so bad? The "structure" of the front office has been cited, but what exactly is the issue? Baalke? Jed?
I guess I don't understand the power structure enough to really know what's going on. Is this a real beef or do these coaches want more power? More say over roster etc???
Can someone fill me in please?
~ Jed is a 29 year old inexperienced kid.
~ He has financial restraints from John and Denise despite his bravado "Money is no object..."
~ Paraage is a recent MBA grad with no experience.
~ Baalke was a scout not long ago and has no GM experience. He is from the Scot M. school of FAIL.
This is a terrible front office.
I can imagine Jed, going to his dad and asking to spend more money on a coach.
At the same time though, I can understand not wanting to give a rookie NFL HC that much money. All in all, this team has talent. Any legit HC should be able to take this team to the playoffs in this horrible division.
If Harbaugh doesn't want to be here, then f**k him. My money has always been on Billick. That might not be very popular round here, but after this fiasco he might be the best the Niners can do.
