Xcfan seems knowledgeable but I think he's one of those guys that loves to argue. Of course Baalke isn't perfect, maybe he isn't great with late round OL but he's one of the best GM's in the league. Some have really high standards or love to complain although I wouldn't say xcfan is fully a complainer because he gave credit for some stuff Baalke did which complainers never seem to do. Ex: well so what if he hit on Aldo, Kap, Hunter, Davis, Iupati he missed on AJ Jenkins. Guy sucks!
Yeah, I'm not singling him out. I'm just speaking to the general issue of people dissatisfied with Baalke. I think Baalke is one of the best GM's in the league and the rest of the league must agree or he wouldn't have gotten Executive of the Year as Pillbusta pointed out. Plus, I don't think he's done all that bad in the lower rounds. Bruce Miller was a seventh rounder. Dixon and K.Williams were both sixth rounders. Hunter was a fourth rounder. The team has gotten a lot of value out of those guys for those positions in the draft.
