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."

As is the case with many analysts, NFL Network's Marc Ross sees Justin Fields of Ohio State as the better prospect when compared to Mac Jones of Alabama. The former Buckeye will hold a second pro day next week, but Ross feels the quarterback has already shown everything he needs to show to NFL teams. "If teams, right now, are still trying to figure out if Justin Fields is the guy, then they've already missed the evaluation, or he's not their guy," Ross told Andrew Siciliano, Bucky Brooks, and Mike Silver on NFL Network. Ross notes that with teams likely already having all of the information they need on the quarterback prospects, it is admirable that Fields is holding another pro day when he has little to gain. "This is just him being a competitor

NFL Media analyst Michael Silver has a lot of belief in the San Francisco 49ers' chances of competing during the upcoming season. He feels head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad can bounce back from its disappointing injury-plagued 2020 campaign and has the pieces in place to become the team to beat in 2021. "I think they're going to come back strong," Silver told Steve Wyche and Judy Battista on NFL Network's Total Access. "You saw the bold move to trade up for the No. 3 pick. They're going to get a quarterback of Kyle Shanahan's choosing, and you're going to have a lot of difference-makers out there on that field." San Francisco has put itself in a position to acquire one of the top quarterback prospects in this month's draft. Right now, Justin Fields of



Mike McDaniel discusses his new role as 49ers offensive coordinator

Mike McDaniel started working with Kyle Shanahan with the Houston Texans. He is one of the San Francisco 49ers head coach's most trusted assistants, serving as the team's run-game coordinator during his first four seasons in Santa Clara. In January, McDaniel was promoted to offensive coordinator, becoming the first coach under Shanahan to hold that title. "Immediately, you're trying to prove your worth and prove the people right that have really invested in you and invested in your career, and given you opportunities, and et cetera, et cetera," McDaniel recently told 49ers.com reporter Keiana Martin. "It instills a level of hunger on top of the hunger that you already had." After McDaniel
