Jed York deserves credit.

Thank you Jed for making up for the transgressions of your idiot father and mother... seriously what NFL team charges players for GATORADE. Jed had the opportunity to learn what not to do from his dad, and lean on his uncle as an advisor.

It's also telling that Jed has the right mind for the new NFL... think about the outsiders he hired, specifically Paraage Marathe who has kept this team loaded with talent and favorable contracts. Add in his confidence in Baalke to be able to land Harbaugh, just watch out. Baalkes draft stockpiling, we have a QB whisperer as a coach, and an amazing coaching staff. This success is sustainable, while other teams up north cough*seahawks are going all out for big FA's which will come crashing down in a couple of years. It's a GREAT time to be a niner fan.

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.

Apparently you have forgotten that what you call the regime previously, that of TDon, was hired on the recommendation of Bill Walsh. I don't know that you can fault someone for following his advice.

Then Nolan. Well, people seem to have forgotten that by then, this was not a team people were fighting to come to. And Nolan had the bloodline. His hiring looked damned good at the time.

"It was not till the parents finally relented total control to the son". Nice way to spin the truth. The parents never had Eddie D's commitment to the team, but when it got dropped in their laps they did the best they could. They took advice and followed it and it turned out Bill Walsh was wrong. So you blame the Yorks. And nobody forced them to pass over control to Jed. At the time, a lot of people were claiming that they either wanted to move the team or to sell it. But they recognised the commitment their son had for the team and handed it over when he was ready. "Finally relented" is nonsense. They could have held onto it as long as they wanted.

And they remain involved, in the background. No way is Jed pushing any policies that his parents strongly oppose. It's about time that the whole family got the credit they are owed from the fanbase.

New era begins

But York helped the healing. When he took the reins in late 2008, he made sure to lean on his uncle for advice.

"He's much, much smarter than I was," DeBartolo said. "I told him to find the right people and let them do their job. Give them autonomy. He's done a magnificent job. Now when we talk, it's an uncle and godfather talking to his nephew and godson.

"He doesn't need my advice anymore."


He did take DeBartolo's advice to heart when he elevated Trent Baalke to general manager and hired Jim Harbaugh as head coach. York recounted the day Harbaugh met with Baalke and other 49ers brass at a private home. The meeting began at lunchtime and went well into the evening, and everyone was sitting in the dark because they didn't know where the light switches were located. It was clear to York that he had found the right combination.

"What I've learned from Eddie is trying to do things in a first-class way and making sure you don't interfere with what your experts are trying to do," York said. "Listen to your gut, trust yourself and do what you think is best for the organization. If you make a mistake, own up to it and move on."

Clearly, Harbaugh has been the difference. You have to credit Baalke for assisting in the building of the roster prior to Harbaugh's arrival, but the coach has been the difference.

And the credit for landing the coach, in my eyes, belongs to Jed.

It was the first moment in eight years that the 49ers set out to do something, and they got their man. I don't know how he was able to do it, but Jed York put together an attractive enough situation and made the right moves to get the right coach.

Prior to that, other big-name coaches had hit the market, but the 49ers were in such disarray that no man in his right mind would have jumped on board that mess. Since the end of the Mariucci era, the ship was rudderless. Jed took over, and with passion and deliberate effort, he put together enough stability behind the scenes and set the table for today's success, so much so that Jim Harbaugh, who could have taken a job with many other teams, recognized it as being his best option, and look how it all turned out.
new stadium, hosting a super bowl, super bowl caliber team

Great Read on Jed York!

Excellent read, thank you!
I like the young fella.
That was a really nice read. We're blessed to have Jed as our owner now.
I love LOVE all your points...class act to ensure he gets Aldon some real help as well; some could argue it's long overdue but when was the last time an ownership made this type of move FOR the player himself? Clearly, it's more than about team...it's about family! And THAT is what Eddie stood for (and still does).

THAT is an incredible article. Seriously...as a true fan or one coming into being one, it's a MUST read by all.

"I will take any shots that anybody wants to write about the organization," Jed York told the media. "You can direct them to me, and I will support Aldon as long as he's willing to work at this and fight to get better."

The statue will be of Uncle Eddie.
Enough said!
