Paraag Marathe Appreciation Thread (The Salary Cap is his b*tch)

For all of the ignorant, unwarranted scrutiny this guy received he deserves some damn credit. To this day, we still don't know if he was in the booth telling Nolan and Sing whether or not to challenge plays, if he had any input on play calling, etc. There were so many rumors about the guy but nothing was substantiated. He got a lot of flak for being part of the "new regime" and using analytics instead of "football instincts" to help with the draft. Some of it may be warranted, although, this guy was used as a HUGE scapegoat. I have never heard of a guy in his role get blamed for losing so much. As he stated in the past, "it'd be half as bad if [my name] were Perry Martin. It's a name you can pronounce. That would cut it in half. If I were white, it would cut it by another quarter. If I were 10 years older, it would cut it by another 10 percent."

Anyway, the salary cap is his b*tch and he does a damn good job. We have been sitting pretty in regards to the cap for a while. The latest example is the Ahmad Brooks contract which has a lot less real guaranteed money that originally reported. And the escalators and de-escalators are a beautiful thing. Every contract should be performance based with incentives like that.

Let's show some love for my boy!!!
He's been doing a great job, thats for sure.

The reason a lot of people dogged on him in the past is due to John York's silence about what he was doing in the front office. With no clear cut defined role, he was looked at as a John York puppet (aka a Robert Rowell for all my Warrior fans). Glad it turned out that he wasnt part of the problem.

That's true... there was a lot of confusion on what his role actually was.
It feels like "Moneyball" for the NFL ... playing the same game as everybody else, but on a completely different level.

Confusion amongst fans. Not within the office. Let's be clear about that. Fans don't need to know the day-to-day duties of the execs.


And the Razor, from KNBR, can choke on it!!

Dude always dissed Paarage before. Paarage is the man!!!
Don't like him. He overpays and the Yorks (dorks) are too cheap.

Yes, the Razor was obsessed with him for a bit. He literally talked about him everyday.

Right? Jed has been paying attention as he was growing up. Listening, working hard, and remembering, all attributing to his direction now. He made a huge mistake with Singletary, but his heart was in the right place. Now his mind and soul have caught up and he's letting others take care of their jobs while he directs the ship.
