Can we give some props to Trent Baalke?

Can we give some props to Trent Baalke?

Baalke gonna play the draft / FA like Charlie Daniels plays a fiddle
i give them all thee credit.
Where are all those bozos who said they didn't want Baalke? They wanted an EXPERIENCED guy. Like a Polian-type. Well what do you think now?
A bunch of these Yahoos jump on here and don't eat the crow later when its nice, hot, served up and crunkled. I'm not going to say I knew it all along,
but I certainly wasn't as skeptical as alot of people when he was first hired. Good on Trent! And good on Harbaugh too who had a good amount of doubters
as well. That combination means more SuperBowls.

I admit I wanted an experienced hand in the building, but I never had a problem with Trent Baalke being appointed GM. I've been a part of terrible organizations and I know for certain, it doesn't mean every single individual in the organization is bad. It's just a reflection of the leadership. So although Baalke has been with us since 2005 I believe, he didn't shine or seem like all that much until we got our organization in order. In this case, it was TB that did it.
He's DEFINITELY the Man!


He has my respect and appreciation.

Almost made it a year

I remember when some in the Zone wanted that walking turd Lombardi.
I'll post this information here as well as it's very important for many to SEE all that Baalke did for us just last year alone...many moves were absolutely critical to our immediate success and into the future (player personnel and cap). Harbaugh is in charge of the 46 per MM.

Our FO is stellar...from personnel to the draft to the cap to the stadium; best in the business
Our defensive coaches are some of the very best...from Fangio down to Tomsula
Our offense and ST's are some of the most average to worst...from Roman down to Seely and Morton.

QFT...
Overall, I think Baalke's done a good job of managing the cap and acquiring good players for Harbaugh. I also have to point out he (Baalke) is the one constant between both Singletary's and Harbaugh's tenures as head coaches. Neither head coach has had a particularly great relationship with him. What I'm suggesting is it's possible Baalke's perhaps a bigger part of the rift between the FO and the bench than we think or may know of. I get Harbaugh's personality and Baalke's may not mesh that well. I agree JH should get a contract extension...but not as the highest paid head coach, because although he's led his team to 3 consecutive playoffs and one SB, his record pales in comparison to someone like Belichick, who has 3 Lombardi's and has kept his team among the NFL's elite for well over a decade. The other thing is I think it's time Jed York put on his big-boy panties and quell all the hoopla by telling both Baalke and Harbaugh "we're in this together and I expect cooperation at all levels to insure we win another Super Bowl".
