Mike Silver: “One person Jed York will talk to a lot is Bill Parcells”

Jan 2, 2017 at 12:05 PM--


Mike Silver of NFL Network appeared on "NFL Total Access" today and discussed San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York and the process of hiring a new general manager and head coach following the firings of Trent Baalke and Chip Kelly.

Earlier today, York was awkwardly pressed during his press conference to reveal some names of people that he is in contact with to help him in the search. He also said that he has had discussions with several other "very well respected people," but did not want to offer names – with some being Super Bowl winning and Hall of Fame coaches.

"One person Jed York will talk to a lot is Bill Parcells, for example," Silver revealed. "Jed York knows he's going to take a lot of criticism right now and frankly he deserves that, but give the man credit. 2-14 is not close to acceptable. He does model himself after his uncle Eddie DeBartolo and, trust me, what Jed York said in response to a somewhat hostile question, 'I own the team. That's the fact,' Eddie would have said much less delicately and made a stronger point.

"He's trying to get it right. He wants a partnership between a GM and a head coach who are linked together. He wants to re-establish a championship culture. He's willing to spend his own money in pursuit of that. I think we should give him a chance. At least he's cutting his losses."

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...

While San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has always expressed significant confidence in his right tackle, Mike McGlinchey, fans and analysts have often been less than complimentary while discussing the offensive lineman's career as a whole. In May, the 49ers exercised McGlinchey's fifth-year option, meaning he will be with the team through the 2022 season. Beyond that, who knows? After defending himself against critics for much of last season, McGlinchey eventually admitted that there was room for improvement. "I think there's a lot of things I did really well all year," McGlinchey said in December. "There's things I did a lot better than last year.
