Jed York deserves credit.

Jed York stayed his course when Me, you, and the NFL world was chastising his actions after he announced the firing of Dingleberry and the pending search for GM/HC. Now granted he brought it on himself when his actions did not match his words, but the fact remains we have Baalke and Harbaugh (+ staff), who are unquestionably responsible for this magical season, because of Jed York.

He got it right the 3rd time. There are teams who have ownership families who never get it right in decades of trying.

I for one thank Jed York. Because of him my every day is a bit brighter, my mood is a bit lighter, my pride in being a die hard Niners fan never stronger, my enjoyment in this entire process unprecedented (I started loving the Niners in the mid 80's), a flood of great memories all tied to a period in which the Niners were an annual powerhouse, revisited.

Personally, I am confident Harbaugh is a special coach. He is a franchise changing coach. Maybe I am setting myself up for a hard hard slap of reality, but what he's done in the last 3-4 months is nothing short of miraculous, and it's that short body of work that I hang my confidence in Harbaugh on.

I believe the Niners are on the cusp of another era of winning football, and all thanks to Jed York.


Thank you Jed.

You are misinformed as/are were many fans. Jed was not responsible for the problems in the begining, lets get the record straight. It was his father and mother who knew nothing and hired Nolan and Singletary and the regimes previous. Although he was president and annoounced Mikes hiring, if you researched it you will see that he (Scott McC-the GM) consulted with the family - meaning mom and dad and not Jed. Jed was just president in name because he was newly appointed.
It was not till the parents finally relented total control to the son and I mean total control. He did it right the first time, hire the right people, from Baalke, to Gideon to Paraag and get out of the way except to ask what do they need.

I do not blame the son for the sins of the father, I also thought many fans were quick to judge him, because jealous people judged him more as a kid born with a silver spoon in his mouth. He grew up around the franchise and showed smarts when he reached out to his uncle eddie for support and advice. People were quick to judge his hiring of Baalke as GM. Imagine if he and his family listened to some of the fans and sold out, the niners wouldn't be where they are at right now.

Thank goodness he is not like Jerry Jones or Dan Snyder. Yet makes bold moves and sticks to his plan.

Mad props to Jed. A franchise cannot achieve success, especially not long term, without solid ownership.

Very important issue, someone at the top has to have some idea of where they are going. Jed has clearly shown that he can get it done. He got the new stadium, now superbowl 50, he has gotten Baalke and Harbaugh, and he has been to the superbowl. He now has a system in place where he can be comptetitive each year for as long as the crew lasts.
Thank you Eddie for showing Jed the way

Not so sure about how much credit should go to the Uncle.
He hasn't done s**t.


I'm counting Lombardis and I only count five....which his uncle won all of them.


I'll send my gratitude if he ever wins one.

+1
IMHO, it's not realistic to compare what Jed's done vs Eddie D. It was a different game during his uncle's era...no FA, if Walsh need a player or two, Eddie went out and got 'em. It's just not that way anymore. Jed's made a lot of good moves to position the Niners to capture more SB's. And for that, he deserves the proper credit.

I'm going to assume your being sarcastic.
Hmm, let's see...

Go from 6-10, to 13-3, make NFC Championship game in a span of 1 year. Go 11-4-1, make to Superbowl. Get new stadium, being built AHEAD of schedule. Host Superbowl 50.


York is the f**king s**t. Harbaugh is the f**king s**t. Baalke is the f**king s**t. Our organization is the f**kING s**t.

Edit: I am not misinformed about anything. Poorly worded original post though and that's my bad.

Other than that one small Dingleberry mistake Jed has owned the NFL/local politicians/organizational structure. I am a huge fan.

I am not misinformed about anything. You sir misread/misunderstood my post. I am very clear on the timeline and what has transpired. I was referencing Jeds proclamation that the GM search would be wide spread and then he went in house. The one and only mistake Jed has made so far was Dingleberry, which was his decision, but it led to Harbaugh so if can be forgiven as rookie mistake.

Other than that one small mistake Jed has owned the NFL/local politicians/organizational structure. I am a huge fan.

At the time there were not many people who disagreed with the Singletary hiring, a mistake nonetheless. But not one I personally faulted him for.
