Who's that? We just got timewarped back to the Gore/Baalke era. LOL

I love that Lynch did a lot of media when Kyle was newer to the role and less comfortable with the media. Now he's stepped back a bit publicly so Kyle and the players can shine.

Thats a good leader

It doesn't get better than this! LOL

At least there isn't any leaking, or dissention in the ranks with this regime, unlike the Harbaugh/Baalke regime.

Also if this refers to the time it took the 49ers to get to a SB or NFC Title game, I hope no one thought we would in 2017 after the way Baalke left the roster a s**t hole, where in 2011 Harbaugh had pieces still(Gore, Vernon, Bowman, Willis, J.Smith, Alex, & others) to help expedite the process, where we had s**t talent except for guys like Buck, Armstead, Ward, etc.... in 2017.

Oh no. This is playful. Year 7 in Lynch's tenure vs. Baalke as the Jags GM in year 3, 1on1.

God, those were great and miserable days!

Yes, yes they were great & miserable years, still never understood the Tomsula & Chip Kelly hires.

I remember getting physically sick with this one. I wanted the Shanahan pair so badly then!

Personally i checked out once Harbaugh was let go, and didn't come back (in a sense) until Kyle was hired. Tomsula and Kelly, from what I knew of them, never inspired confidence in me that they could do the job. Its great that both John and Kyle got that extension.

Personally I think John is underrated as a talent evaluator. I do remember Dwight Clark, who was (i think) Carmen policy's assistant GM at that time being high on Tyrrell Owen's and (i think) had a big role in getting him on the team. Same with John. I think his role in evaluating the DBs - a perceived weakness - has to be given credit for Gipson and Hufanga acquisitions, and possibly Jaiyer too if he pans out.

Don't get me wrong. Adam Peters is a big part of it also, but John's experience at that positon also helps in those evaluations.

If we passed on him, we'd be absolute morons. He will end up anywhere else but Philly. Someone will take him, and it better be us if we get the chance.

Maybe. Could also head to Jacksonville with his old coach.

Interesting that it's saying he wants to play for a contender but to do that he'd have to make it past a bunch of trash teams higher on the waiver wire.

Not sure any team will claim him with his 24 salary.
