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.

Kyle Shanahan on why it was time for 49ers to transition to Trey Lance; Analyst calls it an unnecessary risk

By David Bonilla

Mike Tannenbaum made his opinion on the San Francisco 49ers' quarterback situation very clear this week. The former NFL executive turned analyst was asked on ESPN's GetUp if the move from Jimmy Garoppolo, who enjoyed a lot of success in his four-and-a-half year run as the Niners' starting quarterback, to second-year quarterback Trey Lance is a risk. "Yes, and it's an unnecessary one," Tannenbaum said bluntly. "You have a great quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo, who over the last three years has taken your team to the Super Bowl and the [NFC] Championship Game. I love Trey Lance. I think his upside is compelling. But why would you risk not playing Jimmy Garoppolo, especially early, when you have a team that can win right now? "When Jimmy Garoppolo plays, and

The San Francisco 49ers are trending upwards, even with reports from Santa Clara of quarterback Trey Lance having an up-and-down training camp. Still, the team is talented enough to withstand any growing pains by the second-year player and new full-time starter. Apparently, Dan Hanzus of Around the NFL knows this, and that's why Kyle Shanahan's squad has moved up one spot in NFL.com's most recent power rankings, landing at No. 4. "It's full speed ahead for the Trey Lance era in San Francisco," wrote Hanzus. "There's likely to be some turbulence for a young passer with limited experience, but Lance has been set up for success after a

For months, San Francisco 49ers fans have been awaiting closure surrounding the quarterback situation with Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance, and finally got some last week when head coach Kyle Shanahan declared that Lance was the guy moving forward at the position. Even more closure around Garoppolo could be on its way soon, as Marco Martinez of the "49ers RedZone" podcast confirmed to me on Thursday that the veteran quarterback's agent has indeed been in talks with the New York Giants, who have had themselves a bit of a quarterback dilemma after electing to bypass on Daniel Jones's fifth-year option and signing veteran Tyrod Taylor to a two-year deal in the offseason. Remember, Garoppolo currently has one year and $24.2 million left on his contract, but it's
