John York calls report of Jed losing power “completely” false

Dec 18, 2016 at 4:55 PM--


San Francisco 49ers owner John York commented on a recent report following the team's 41-13 dismantling by the Falcons in Atlanta. He shot down a report of his son, CEO Jed York, losing power with the team. York was asked by Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group if the report was indeed false. "Completely," he answered.


The report originated on December 11 when Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that 49ers general manager Trent Baalke would be fired. "Several NFL owners believe Jed York's parents, Denise and John York, will be taking a more hands-on approach with the team as they determine how to reposition the franchise, and Mike Shanahan, who has been under consideration for coaching openings there in the past, could join the 49ers in a coaching and/or executive capacity," La Canfora wrote within the report.

A day later, La Canfora expanded on that report while on KNBR. "[Jed York] would be out," he said about the situation should it come to fruition. "He wouldn't be involved in football operations. I mean you can get cute with titles. You can do whatever you think you have to do. But the premise would be, the top of the pyramid would be this person they bring in, to effectively be running the football operation."

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk refuted the report by La Canfora, saying it was completely false and that Jed York is not going anywhere. He also stated that Shanahan was not coming to the 49ers in any capacity. La Canfora continued to stand by his original report and once again went on KNBR to reaffirm what he had said and discuss the Florio comments.

As early as yesterday, La Canfora stated that he continues to hear information about a possible shakeup in the San Francisco 49ers organization soon. He stated that many plugged-in sources still point to a "growing schism" within the York family over future of the team.


The 49ers are now 1-13 and changes will likely take place following the season. We will likely have to wait until then to see what those changes are.

Give yourself a hand. A standing ovation even. You've survived Wild Card weekend with great poise and determination, and you're now focused and ready for the Divisional Round of the NFL Postseason. Give yourself a high-five. Better yet, give someone else a high-five. Even if you don't know them, walk over and give someone a high-five. Don't tell them why you're doing it. Just do it.

49ers' John Lynch praises Christian McCaffrey: "He's been a godsend"

Looking at the roster in October, the San Francisco 49ers decided to go all-in. The coaches and executives already believed in the talent level. For whatever reason, the 49ers were sitting at .500, though. So the team traded for star running back Christian McCaffrey. Since then, the 49ers have lost just one game. It was McCaffrey's first game in a Niners uniform, where he had about 48 hours to prepare. San Francisco has won 11 consecutive games since, including this past weekend's Wild Card playoff win against the Seattle Seahawks, setting the stage for Sunday's showdown with the Dallas Cowboys. The fact that the 49ers haven't lost a game in which McCaffrey has



John Lynch: 49ers rookie Brock Purdy unfazed by pressure

Brock Purdy is a rookie. He was a seventh-round draft pick. In fact, he was the last overall pick in the draft. I'm just reminding you of that in case you forgot. After all, watching the 23-year-old San Francisco 49ers quarterback on the field, it's easy to forget that he has started just six NFL games. One of those starts was this past weekend's playoff win over the Seattle Seahawks. Next, he'll face the Dallas Cowboys in the Divisional Round. Purdy has taken the NFL by storm, becoming one of the more intriguing storylines of the season, given he was draft pick No. 262—labeled as "Mr. Irrelevant." It's tough to win in the NFL. Yes, Purdy has a talented supporting cast around him, but he is still a rookie. So what he is doing with his



John Lynch: Brock Purdy has earned 49ers' trust

Heading into the regular season, the San Francisco 49ers saw potential in rookie quarterback Brock Purdy, who prepared and competed like a guy who has been in the league for years. Still, no one could have predicted what the 23-year-old would do in his first NFL season. The 49ers lost starter Trey Lance to an ankle injury in Week 2. Then, Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a foot injury in Week 13, setting the stage for one of the most intriguing storylines of the season. Purdy took over for Garoppolo, and the 49ers offense hasn't skipped a beat. In fact, production improved with the rookie under center. Yes, Purdy's teammates trusted the youngster, but he still had to go out onto the football field and prove it. Purdy played most of that Week 13 contest
