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?
Imagine you buy a canvass that has a picture of Dogs Playing Poker painted on it. You decide to re-paint the canvass. You have this opportunity to hire the best painters in the world to create something truly original and awe inspiring. But you hire the guy that originally painted the canvass and he re-paints Dogs Playing Poker.
That's the problem with the 49ers front office. The Yorks could have justified this season as an opportunity to clean house entirely - new GM, new personnel staff, new coaching staff - to really structure the organization any way they wanted to. And you hire a guy from within with no real experience. You keep guys like Praage Maroth (sp?) on staff. It's the same people that have been a part of driving this team into the ground.
