Fans and the media was all over him for promoting someone inexperienced from within instead of looking outside for a vet GM. He stood firm, took all the sh*t from us and the media.
Jed you made it happened. Thank you
I gotta give it up for Baalke. He's done a great job. I was not happy about the Baalke hire at the time. I thought Harbaugh was a GREAT choice but had a lot of misgivings about Baalke. But looking at what he did in FA, plus the last draft, I'm impressed. Jed made the right move and Trent proved me wrong.
Regarding the Singletary move: I suspect Jed was thinking about his replacement long before that Rams game.
