I for one love it. But I am an unsavory character, and can not be trusted.

But what do you think?

Excellent news. We are lucky to have such a good HC-GM duo.
Fantastic. So far they've been hugely successful. Here's hoping they can get us where we all want to go.

bye bye Adam Peters.
let the good times roll
It's difficult to get such an extension when you bomb a QB selection where you used three years' worth of first round picks. However, they've drafted three potential HoFers in Warner, Bosa and Kittle and have (I assume) been the best in the league in drafting in the later rounds. They got exceptionally lucky with BCB. They're a marginal playoff team, at best, the moment Jimmy went down last year without Purdy. With Purdy they were Super Bowl contenders last year, and now, presumably, one of 2 or 3 frontrunners this year. If they had entered this year with Lance or Darnold as the starter and started out 1-2 after either failing to make the playoffs last year or getting blown out in the first round, do they still get the extension? I'm not asking this rhetorically, I don't know. Had they failed to make the playoffs last year, that would have been three out of six years out of the postseason and without BCB, they would have possibly still been a mess at QB. I think they would have continued on with these guys, but I'm not sure about a six year extension.

QBs save and ruin coaches. Guys like Zach Wilson are absolute coach killers -- the direct opposites are BCB and Russel Wilson when he was on his rookie contract. The Jets probably had the best draft of any team in a decade last year when they picked up Sauce Gardner, Garret Wilson and Breece Hall. Salah has put together a good defense and I think their culture is good. The Jets needed a QB and the Jets didn't reach for Zach Wilson. Had they not drafted him, the 49ers would have and we all would have been pissed at his laziness and crappy play like the Jets fans currently are. I've speculated that Lynch and Shanahan moved up to #3 in the hopes that the Jets would pass on Wilson and instead select Justin Fields or even Trey Lance. It seemed like an odd move to me at the time because Wilson evolved into the undisputed #2 and I felt like the other QBs were a reach at #3. It kills me that the #12 pick was eventually used on Micah Parsons by the Cowboys.
Does this help us take our next step as a franchise? Putting together best-in-class personnel, front office, and football ops?

I kinda see the same franchise we were last year, the year before, the year before that.

  • eat a cardboard sandwich contract negotiation style;
  • temperamental, erratic drafting;
  • revolving door senior assistants;

the main difference is Purdy. he is compensating for so much right now.

Are we encouraging the necessary core changes we need to contend year in year out, with a big bonus and extension for these guys?

Looks to me like we are rewarding throwing away three firsts for an ex linebacker with no experience.

I dunno. Rather take the money and upgrade our draft infrastructure and informational tools. hire a jerry West type big picture consultant with an impeccable winning pedigree. Bring in some dudes from the All-Blacks to help build the kind of internal culture that produces Celtics or Canadien style dominance. They did it at barca.

Still havent won a super bowl yet, though its looking good so far.

Definitely not giving shanalynch their due here.

Just obsessing about getting over the hump.

You serve the cheesecake after the main meal.

BTW, the irony is not lost on me that Russel Wilson has now become a coach killer later in his career.

You'd think it's a no brainer but I've seen posters who I assume have 2 brain cells talk bad on it.
