John Lynch - 49ers GM

Lucked into Shanahan but Lynch as a GM?

Wtf??

So many qualified GMs 49ers interviewed...and in the end - they decided to hire a guy who has ZERO experience working in a NFL Front Office. He has ZERO experience as a scout at any level. I understand, so many potential GM candidates rejected 49ers. But, to hire a guy who has never held a position that is in no way related to a day-2-day job profile of a GM is unbelievable.

I'm sure Lynch is a smart guy...he was a smart player...but that has NOTHING to do with being a GM. Why take the risk at this time?



---------------

edit: After having some time to digest this news...wish him all the best and I hope he proves ppl wrong. Still don't understand why we needed to take such a risk but it is what it is now.

I do have to say - his first presser made a positive impression.

SF is hiring Hall-of-Fame candidate and FOX analyst John Lynch as GM, sources tell ESPN. Lynch back to Bay Area, where he went to Stanford.

The #49ers are hiring FOX analyst John Lynch as their GM, source says. Out of nowhere.

49ers are giving John Lynch an almost unprecedented six-year deal to become their GM, per sources.

Wow. Says a lot that the 49ers had to give Lynch, with no GM experience, six years to take the job.

Again, no judgment of Lynch (yet), but I think the lack of leaks the last two days was a tell: Jed and Paraag were/are STRUGGLING.
Didn't see this lol.
