Jed York deserves credit.

Peyton would've at least let us watch more segments or read more articles about the Niners, but it would've been 90% Peyton-based and I'm glad we're going into this season as a 49ers team, not a Peyton Manning team.

I agree

Pretty much agree.
Whether we go to the SB or not, Jed and his staff deserve credit for putting a great product on the field and doing the one thing ALL - and I mean ALL of his predecessors couldn't do - building a stadium.

Jed, thanks for not being an idiot and taking the reigns from your ugly dad.

He didn't take them. They were given to him. Props to his dad for handing them over.

I can't stand his dad. It's a personal thing. Hard for me to give that POS any credit. He threw my team in the tank for some years. That was a depressing era in my life. Also, Jed deserves props for being ready to handle that at such a young age.

at least his dad finally came to the realization he did not either have the desire or the knowledge to handle a nfl team

John York was one of the first people to react when Thomas Herrion collapsed in the locker room. Memory is fading but I think he was doing cpr until paramedics arrived.

The 49ers then fulfilled Herrion's dream by taking care of his family. Paid off mortgage and took on all property taxes in future etc.

As a football owner meh. Outside of football the dude deserves respect

Point being, by the accounts I have read (and before anyone asks I can't be bothered to dig up links) he never had the desire. He knew he didn't have the knowledge so he turned to a guy who did, to recommend a man who had the knowledge and desire.

We know how that turned out! But what better could he have done than follow a Bill Walsh recommendation?
Young prince is bringing the Niners back to our glory days. Props to Jed and the great decisions he has made recently. Keep it up, Jed. Next trick..............a Super Bowl.
He has improved and grown in his role.

Thanks Jed, keep getting better.
