Jed’s Dead, Baby! Jed’s Dead . . . !

img_2961This is my son and I yesterday at the game. While it is a vast improvement of my looks, I was surprised not to see more dissension. Must have had about 50-60 people ask to take our picture. Walking to my car, we got a lot of honks and thumbs ups.

Futile protest? Sure. But what else is there? Not going? My son wanted to see a game at the new digs, so we did it. Our last game was in 2013. Who knew that was the beginning of the end? At best the stadium was a little over half full. Even on the shady side. For a stadium that is brand new and a team that is 3 years removed from the NFC Championship game, this is a precipitous fall.

Bitch as you will about the QB situation, this team has so many holes it resembles Swiss cheese, minus the cheese. The ‘defense’ gave up another 150 + rushing performance to recent couch surfer Jaquizz Rodgers. And 250 total rushing yards on their way to 513 total these last TWO games.

As is with recent games, we seem to own the first quarter. The opening kickoff was a near perfect drive as Kaepernick and co drove 75 yards in 6 plays, with Kappy going 2-2 for 41 yards, and CK getting 7 on a run with Mike Davis sealing the deal with 12 yards and the score (plus a 15 yard headhunting call). The teams traded punts until Gerald Hodges picked off a tipped pass at the TB 38 and ran it to the TB 17. One play later it was 14-0 as CK fired a bullet to Shaun Draughns in the front corner of the end zone.

14-0 at the end of the first quarter. You know the rest. We were outscored 34-3 for the rest of the game. Kappy threw a stupid pick to kill a drive. VMcD was covered like a blanket and Kappy threw it to the DB. Streater killed the next drive with a drop on 3rd and 2. The high-powered Shit Chipper offense then started throwing 4 yard passes. all to no avail as the half ended.

Still and all, we were only down 17-14, and we stopped TB on their opening drive to the 3rd. Of course Mo and Kerley muff the punt giving the Bucs the ball back. Another potential drive was killed by a 15 yard drop by VMcD and the defense kept failing. The Niners get a little drive going, and elect to kick a FG, which  I thought was stupid as it still left us down 2 scores. It looked even dumber when we gave up a 44 yard TD run to the TB mascot. And they don’t even have one.

    Chuck that bag adds to your presence. I’m sure the bloggers over at Skeebers will enjoy it. Who knows……this may catch on at Levi’s. Each loss only adds to the bag movement.

    • Winder says:

      chuck- Nice bags, looks like you put in a little effort. I haven’t caught a game in SC yet, maybe someday. However someone would have to give me a ticket, I wouldn’t pay to go see this team. Hopefully, we will be in Oregon by this time next year, maybe then.

  2. unca_chuck says:

    And like clockwork, the playpen is lamenting the QB spot now. AFter Gabbert leads the team to a 1-4 record, the sole blame for the team’s ineptitude is Kaepernick. That protest is fracturing the team.

    Yeah, we’d be 6-1 with Gabbert quarterbacking, and Colin standing up.

    Bunch of fucking brain-dead idiots. If I didn’t know any better I’d think those guys run the fucking team.

    NoFear is Jed.
    Phil is Trent Balke.
    Buwwitt is Paraag Marathe
    Spitblood is the ghost of Bob St. Clair.

    I’m nearly done with this as I don’t see a very bright future. I also don’t want to become a whiny bitch site like Skeebie’s. These losses are hard to take at this point because we aren’t doing anything about the front office problems and we haven’t for 3 years now.

    Harbaugh wanted out. Got it? He saw the writing on the wall be the end of the 2013 season. He used this stop as a placeholder til he got the Michigan job. It worked out unbelievably well for him what with the talent he inherited and the success he had. Baalke wasn’t helping him at all with his drafts, and he wouldn’t have done much better than these last 2 guys given the talent drain.

  3. Nipper says:

    The Niner season……….BOO HOO!

  4. Irish Kevin says:

    Hey where is the pic of the 3 of us!! Nice to meet up with you and your family, you have two great kids!!

  5. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, they are great kids. My oldest is having much more fun in Hawaii right now. She left on Saturday. . . .

    Here it is!! Hanging with you was about the best part of that shitty shitty game.


    The fucking stand are empty and this is halftime.

  6. Lurker John says:

    Sorry, Chuck, don’t swing that way. Maybe Nipper can help you out.

    What’s any player supposed to do? He’s in there and he’s got to play. Stating that either guy is padding his stats is ridiculous (talking to you and Berger). First of all the words padding stats should never be used referring to any 49er because there ain’t no padding. You have spoken more highly of Kap more than others these days, and whether that’s because he’s a better option than Gabbert (highly debatable) or not, both guys are stinking up the greater Santa Clara region these days. I take that to mean that you are still behind him as a viable option moving forward, at least for this season.

    Best case scenario as far as I’m concerned is that he and Baalke walk hand in hand off into the distant sunset immediately after the final whistle of the season, never to be seen again. At this point, I’m in fan limbo. There’s nothing to root for, this franchise is in as bad a shape as it has been in years, maybe ever. Injuries are piling up as are the embarrassing losses.

    There’s talk on Seattle talk radio today of the Seahawks possibly dealing a first round pick for Staley. Their O-line is as bad as the Niner’s D-line is.

    • Berger says:

      I used to be a huge Kap fan until he asked for a trade. If he came in and played great I could jump back on the bandwagon. I don’t see that happening and would really just like to see him go away.

  7. Lurker John says:

    I have no doubt that if the Niners do deal Staley for a first rounder, and Baalke is still around, they’ll squander it yet again and not on a QB. This whole train wreck is discouraging and I have no confidence in Jed’s ability to make the decisions necessary to turn this thing around. He cannot be so stupid and his ego so big that he thinks he has a handle on things.

    Time for him to somehow trick a top football man into the FO and then cede control of all football matters to him. If he keeps meddling, it’ll be years before anything good happens. It may be years anyway.

  8. unca_chuck says:

    No one in the building or on the team right now, with the possible exception of Navorro Bowman and Staley is worth a plug nickel.

    Baalke should be gone already. They fact we are looking to deal pieces is all the more galling to me.

    Fuck Jed

    Fuck Baalke

    Fuck the stadium. It has all the ambience of a doctor’s office waiting room.

    Fuck Dr. Kedorkian and Denise Shitforbrains.

    Fuck this entire front office.

    I know they are bad. I’ve known they are bad. But this seals the deal. The front office is pointing to the players for the reason this team stinks. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Look in the mirror you ignorant turd burglars.

    Baalke gets to trade guys now? Shit. I guess isn’t really a bad thing since he’s pretty good at getting draft picks for later use. But it’s what he does with them that has me furious.

    We’re in bat country now . . .

    • 12th man says:

      Makes sense to me, Staley is 32 and still has 2nd round trade value, 1st for a desperate team. I hope they trade Kap, since his new contract that’s now a possibility and play Ponder the rest of the way. One placeholder is as bad as another.

      Balked won’t survive beyond this season and if I’m Kelly I change DC asap although I read he is staying PAT, which is dumb IMO.

      Easy does it John, none of us are happy with any aspect of the team top to bottom right now but we’ve been here before right?

      • ewisco says:

        change DC sure, but for who(m?)? it’s not like there’s much of a choice mid-season.

      • 12th man says:

        Fair enough but I would take Coco the Clown at this point. Promote the DB coach maybe, the team likes staying in house for it’s league wide searches.

  9. Flavor says:

    There is no way I’m hell anyone is paying a first or even a second round pick for Staley. That is all. Good day.

  10. Nipper says:

    In conclusion: Sniff……..BOO HOO again. This season is over. The only thing left is a massive firing of everyone. . Jed is totally worthless.

  11. 12th man says:

    Lisa D still taking shots at Jed:

  12. 12th man says:

    Not to flog a dead horse but you guys see Kap wearing a Black Panthers shirt at his presser?

  13. NJ49er says:

    Nicely done Chuck 😀
    Protesting is all the more enjoyable when there’s passion behind it.
    At this point, it would appear that they’re committed to building around the Chip System so, clear the decks and have at it.
    We’ll have our differences about the Baalke topic but, he’s got Gamble back in the mix, which, (I’m hoping), will produce better results than Paraag offered.
    IMO, the HC/GM and Coaches have to have mutual input/common vision on what it is they’re attempting to build.
    Joe deserves a better situation than he’s likely to see here during this process.
    I’d suggest that Greg Cosell’s opinion on Garoppolo makes a ton of sense.
    Good rapport between Chip/Baalke and Belichick too.
    Joe for Jimmy?
    Why not?

  14. NJ49er says:

    I’ll forward some pics of my protest to you via email –

    • NJ49er says:

      Beat me to it 12th, was just about to share that same link 😀
      The fire sale has officially begun.

      • NJ49er says:

        Neither Kaep, nor Gabbert, seems capable of finding the guy anyway.
        Let’s see if this Chip Offense is actually worth anything going forward with Gamble and some high Picks coming their way.
        It all starts with a QB that can run this thing for him, so, no WR is worth a rating until that move occurs anyway.

  15. Nipper says:

    I bet some of you guys can post some pics of bags of your own on this blog that would be a hoot. Those pics would never appear on the “other” blog. They’re too concerned about politics.

  16. unca_chuck says:

    Staley has a few good years left. If they are going fire sale, well i guess my weekends are just a little bit freer. Torrey SHOULD go somewhere. Anywhere. I guess he saved himself from damage by not ever getting hit.

  17. unca_chuck says:

    Right, Nip. My son and I did the ‘Spike Mike’ thing a while back.

    And yes, we’ve been here before.

  18. unca_chuck says:

    Jesus. Nowhere but in the playpen is the kneel down even discussed.

    A bunch of old biddies bemoaning the good old days when all the QBs were white.

    Like it or hate it, Kaepernick’s kneel down has zero to do with this team’s record. This team sucks because the owner is a pathetic little shit hiding behind his GM.

    Jed is still beholden to Daddy, so he has to listen to his input. Along with Paraag, and all the other middle management types clogging the works.

    I’m still holding out hope that Steve Young and Brent Jones can somehow buy the team before 2030.

  19. unca_chuck says:

    Those pics are fucking awesome, NJ!!!

    • NJ49er says:

      Nolan got canned the next day too Chuck 😀
      The rest as they say, is history.
      The Yorks have destroyed our beloved Franchise.

  20. NJ49er says:

    Maybe your Bag Protest will catch on out there.
    These weenies need all the negative publicity we can muster.

  21. NJ49er says:

    In other areas of potential fire sale-dom, Geno Smith tore an ACL yesterday.
    Still banging the drum for Kaep to the NYJ.

  22. unca_chuck says:

    The big problem is, Jed doesn’t want to fire Chip as he would be paying 2 ex-coaches about $25 mill. Then he’d have to hire another one and pay HIM. But the big BUT is, if he fires Baalke and hires a new GM, his directive will be to keep Chipper. Which means any GM with any eggs will tell Jed to pound sand. So, we’ll likely promote Tom Gamble with the (*) that he has to keep Kelly.

    Which is better than Baalke I guess, but who knows? The front office is a fucking mess, and now the Niners are in fire sale mode. We are likely 1-15. . .

  23. unca_chuck says:

    Give this a day and Phil will post it as his own.

  24. unca_chuck says:

    After watching Ryan Fitzpatrick and Ichabod Osweiler tonight, Kappy’s stock went up.

  25. NJ49er says:

    Part, if not most, of my support for Baalke had to do with all the dismissals attached to Dr York since they came into power.
    At one point in time McCloughan/Baalke and Gamble worked together.
    Starting with Mooch, they’ve had issues with HCs as well.
    All of their moves surrounding Football Ops have done nothing but destabilize the core.
    Then, they get Harbaugh to turn things around only to destroy things from within.
    Paraag’s insertion likely fractured the Gamble/Baalke relationship, and sent him looking for better opportunities.
    Baalke will benefit from having him back.
    They simply have to be left alone and allowed to work as the ‘football guys’ without interference.
    That’s all I ask.
    Baalke sought Gase, got overruled.
    They have Chip, another attempt at finding Offense at least.
    If they’re willing to leave these guys alone to build it together, there could be hope before Chip’s deal ends.
    These morons just need to keep out of the picture. They’re clueless and destructive.

    • NJ49er says:

      If Gamble replaces Baalke, so be it.
      Just so long as Paraag and Jed aren’t involved, things have to improve.

  26. Winder says:

    A song for Jed

  27. Nipper says:

    Damn it’s dark this morning. I guess some rain is due. Another day of watching the 49ers deny what everyone is reporting. BLEEP !

  28. Nipper says:

    At least our team has one win and probably it’s the only win of the season. Ouch!

  29. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah it sucks when the highlight of the year is the first game.

  30. Nipper says:

    Chip Kelly has a week off. What will he do?
    A. Curse the darkness
    B. Cuss out Trent Baalke
    C. Complain to Jed York that he’s underpaid to take this shit
    D. Look at film of all the sad 49er games since the Lambs game
    E. Grab a ticket at the airport for parts unknown.

  31. Nipper says:

    Kap has his knee but Chuck has his bags!

  32. NJ49er says:

    Looks as though the planes will still be part of the Home Game Flight Plans –
    Baalke’s turn on the message banners –

    • rtfirefly says:

      I saw that but I think they’re making a mistake. The Banner should read “Jed York = Failure”. Hit ’em where it means something and it hurts. Jed and Paraag are the ones who need to go if we’re to have any hope. Even if Baalke goes, which I’m doubting these days, we’ll just get Gamble (after one of those nationwide searches which end in the office next door, no doubt) who’s another apple off the Parcells tree, and we’ll still be stuck with incompetence at the top.

      • NJ49er says:

        That’s been the basis of my beliefs all along RT.
        The Parcells Tree has produced some pretty competent football people along the way.
        Baalke may have been a power broker of sorts but, he WAS the only ‘football guy’ in the building after the Yorks systematically destroyed everything around him.

        As I’ve spewed forever, what the fuk did Paraag offer other than Contract Mgt expertise?
        How did he get into the booth on game days? Dabble in the Draft ‘stats’ capacity?
        Get into personality clashes with Kaep and Harbaugh?
        The weasel at the top, Dr Daddy, simply stepped out of view and left Jed and Paraag to carry out his plans.
        Scot/Trent and Tom ran the show in terms of Football Ops at one point in time.

        Until Dr Daddy decided to let the MBA Twins apply their brand of Corporate BS to NFL practices.
        Scot got dumped. Trent promoted/Harbaugh recruited. Things turned positive for several years only to have the entire inner workings extinguished by the incompetent Ownership.
        Now, they’re tied to Chip as yet another attempt to find an Offense.
        Which requires a QB, something that they’ve missed on with Alex and Kaep.
        Bringing back Gamble may have been the brightest move made in several years.
        I suspect Baalke could land in some yet to be identified position higher up the food chain.
        So long as it insulates the Football Ops further from the Yorks, they could keep this ship from hitting rock bottom.
        Baalke needs Offense.
        Chip needs qualified Personnel evaluators.
        Gamble has a head start with Chip’s System by way of Philly.
        Let those 3 go after this Draft Class, unimpeded, and see what can be accomplished.

        It’s sickening to see what has become of this Franchise since Denise took control.
        A carousel of Coaching firings/hirings.
        No competent NFL Coaches would touch this sh!t without guaranteed Contracts in place beforehand.

      • NJ49er says:

        Winder they’re stuck with Chip for the foreseeable future.
        They won’t pay another Coach to fish, thanks to their incompetence with the Tomsula hiring,
        This is the only thing left to do now. Give Chip a crack at the Offense through the next Draft.
        Baalke is better on the Defensive side of the ledger.
        He needs a HC to find the proper pieces on the Offensive side.
        The Yorks simply have to get the eff out of the picture, if that’s even possible.

  33. Winder says:

    I think you guys are nuts. We have already hit rock bottom. This is probably the worst 49er team in the history of the franchise. Jed will probably dysfunctional for quite awhile and there really is nothing we can do about that except not give him our money. He has to fire these incompetent fools who have made us the laughing stock of the league. Baalky is the # 1 reason for this, he really needs to go. And as far as I’m concerned Chipski can hit the door too. He hasn’t done squat.

  34. unca_chuck says:

    We’re all in the dark about who did what go who NJ but the truth is Baalke took a stacked team and systematically fucked up his 6 drafts. Sing couldnt win with the talent and Harbaugh did.

    The biggest problem right now is Baalke. Whatever happened between St Jim and Trent was between them, not the higher-ups. Mainly, Trents picks I’d think.

    • NJ49er says:

      Chuck I find it hard to see how, when Trent recruited Harbaugh, to have that relationship evaporate.
      Sure, they could have had disagreements over Personnel. Totally plausible.
      What bothers me, and likely bothered Harbaugh too, was where in the process Paraag had daily dealing/conflicts with him?
      Trent isn’t without scrutiny on his Draft history.
      But, look at the timeline where Gamble left the picture and ask, who was left?
      Scot/Trent and Tom had done a pretty solid job collectively until all the HC changes began following Mooch’s firing.
      They did Baalke no favors since he took over for Scot.
      The Yorks are incompetent, as well as clueless in the NFL arena.
      Firing Baalke would be nothing but another pelt on the wall of shame these idiots have created for themselves.
      You can’t Draft for development one year and have all your Coaches changed the next.
      Pieces you buy for Harbaugh don’t apply to what Chip is shopping for now.
      For me, there’s a patience factor that has to be applied to building a team.
      The Yorks have found ways to have conflicts with their Coaches, going back to Mooch.
      Sure, Harbaugh was abrasive, anti-social, whatever, but he won.
      Somehow that wasn’t good enough.
      I just have to ask why Paraag and Jed couldn’t deal with him?
      What exactly were they expecting beyond success on the Field on Sundays?

      • NJ49er says:

        The team was stacked collectively by Scot/Trent and Tom prior to Harbaugh’s arrival.
        We’ve failed to find the next Montana/Brady too.
        Which typically is a decision made at the QB position by the HC more so than just a GM.
        Nolan went with Alex.
        Harbaugh went with Kaep.
        I would offer that Harbaugh and Baalke could have had a falling out over Kaep’s development too. Very possible.

  35. NJ49er says:

    I just can’t understand how the ‘Cap Guy’ got so involved in Football Ops to begin with.

  36. NJ49er says:

    Tell me exactly what all these Front Office moves add up to?
    It’s like re-org alphabet soup just for something to do.
    Jed is a clueless twit trying to feel like he’s doing anything constructive.

    • NJ49er says:

      This paragraph alone speaks to the sad reality of chasing one’s tail –
      “It is interesting to note that Jed York says Marathe does still report directly to him. Al Guido is team president, but it is exclusively in the realm of football. York is the CEO, and has said his role is to find the best football people and give them the resources they need. I’m still not fully clear on how much say York will have amidst all this. Hopefully Baalke, Gamble, Kelly, and Marathe can sort this all out.”

      Titles Schmitles.
      Adds up to Meddling Incompetence in my book.

      • NJ49er says:

        Paraag is identified as ‘Chief Strategy Officer AND Executive VP of Football Operations’
        Say what?
        Let’s decipher –
        ‘Paraag is my buddy and he knows more than I do. Which isn’t saying much about his Football IQ.’

      • NJ49er says:

        What you get from that piece is, it’s simply a business venture aimed at profits for the York Family.
        Football guys BEWARE….

      • NJ49er says:

        His Biography is entertaining too –
        Lot’s of accolades about his Stadium accomplishments and Technology innovations.
        Not so much ‘meat’ regarding his Football related successes other than some Cap negotiations. Which is basically ALL he should be doing IMO.
        How that crosses into ‘Day to Day’ involvement blows my mind.
        Negotiate a few Contracts. Get LOST.

  37. NJ49er says:

    Chuck this is one of ‘those’ scratch my head articles I’d read sometime back that haunts me to this day.
    One phrase within this piece depicts his involvement as what I’ve called ‘Moneyball Tactics’, and the specific word is ‘analytics’, which doesn’t do Baalke, or anyone else on the football side any good IMO.
    I simply don’t see how any GM would succeed with these Corporate morons ‘shaping’ the processes.

    “Marathe, who has been CEO Jed York’s right-hand man and instrumental in shaping the front office’s thinking on player contracts and football philosophy via ANALYTICS”

  38. NJ49er says:

    Berger someone else is chiming in with us for a Fat Man in the Middle –

    • Berger says:

      Even with Dorsey we are weak at NT. We are not playing our D-linemen to their strengths. Barrows did a good job of identifying some major issues. When you ask a young D-lineman to 2-gap and read they stand up and look for the action. It is typical.

      Either the coaches have decided this year is not important in the win loss column so they are teaching these guys up for the future or as I believe, the coaching is not so good and they are trying to impose a system on our young players that they aren’t suited for.

      Either way we need a quality NT or two if we want to stop the run.

  39. Nipper says:

    Well what a surprise! We don’t have to wait until Christmas for the Warriors first loss. The media has really gone nuts with the Warriors being undefeatable. Spurs took care of business the very first game on the Warriors home court! Ouch!

  40. Nipper says:

    Help! I can’t get up and I’m a 49ers fan! Help!

  41. unca_chuck says:

    I give Baalke 0 credit for anything Scotty did. Why? Because we have shredded talent like my black lab sheds hair since Scott left. With Gamble or without, the talent goes away.

    This organization goes nowhere with Baalke manning the draft. Yeah Paraag is an obstacle. I’ve said all along that Jed needs to grow some balls and get his father and Denise out of the building. Paraag as well.

    They HAVE to start over. Anything now is just staggering blindly in the dark.

  42. rtfirefly says:

    Just an FYI, Chuck. I’m having worlds of trouble getting on here lately. WordPress, my own Microsoft updates, virus? Dunno, but if I disappear that’s why. I’m tempted to go into hibernation right now and wake just in time for the draft, anyway. All I’ve got left to hope for in the season is improvement on the offense. I surely don’t expect anything anymore from the defense I was banking on for my 7-9 prediction.

  43. unca_chuck says:

    Haven’t seen any problems on my side, Rufus. I’ll che k it out though.

    CUBS win!

  44. unca_chuck says:

    The play pen is in full revisioinista mode.

    Phil parrots what I said 2 years ago about Harbaugh and calls it his own. Yet again. What a sad excuse for a man. Jesus, come up with an original thought not spoon-fed to you by NoFear.

    Fucking idiot. Sorry you got hit in the head with too many coconuts there, skippy.

    And poor little skeebie gets all keyboard tough with his skirts protected by his sychophants. If you don’t think Harbaughs dream job was Michigan, well you are at sub-cretin levels of intelligence. Oh yeah. I’m surprised St Jim hasn’t dug up Bo and planted him in his living room. And NoFear, you were much more enjoyable dead.

    Spitty is as spitty does. 90% noise, 10 % signal. At least he’s calling out the poor entitled little closet racists over there. Since skeebie is a chickenshit little pussy who want Donald to grab his, someone has to call out the trailer trash.

  45. unca_chuck says:

    Rtf didn’t see anything of yours stuck in the filters so the problems might be on your side.

  46. NJ49er says:

    Read a good suggestion regarding our 2 potential Trade options involving Staley and Torrey.

    Staley to MN for a ’17 2nd and ’18 5th (which, of course, would put him back together with Boone)
    I’d take that deal. MN needs a LT.

    Torrey to Philly straight up for LB Mychal Kendricks
    I’d do that deal too.
    We need LB help. (Among other things)

  47. rtfirefly says:

    Well you’re nuts, Chuck. Harbs didn’t try to trade himself to Cleveland. It’s clear that the Jed/Paraag/Baalke cabal hated Harbs’ call for more power. As usual, Jimbo was absolutely right. The others are football morons. Kawakami tweeted today that’s there is FAR more to the shit that happened than has been reported and he hinted that he might get around to reporting it eventually but that he can’t now.

    My hope now is that The Chipster goes back to college in January. This will put the bullseye squarely on the cabal. 4 head coaches in 4 years does not look good, and wait till no HC nor FA worth a shit will come here and we’re stuck signing guys working at Safeway in free agency to burn the cap money. That’ll be a riot and we can rival this year’s team for lack of wins.

    • NJ49er says:

      Therein lies the problem RT.
      Even if they could get out from under the current Contract with Chip, who would be beating a path to fill the vacancy after the recent track record of revolving HCs?
      This garbage has gone on for 16yrs already with the York Ownership.
      All they could hope to entice is yet another College guy, looking for a break in opportunity to the NFL, who’s neither proven, or too expensive.

      Cabal is quite the perfection definition BTW.

      • NJ49er says:

        The more they blow up the Coaching Staffs, the thinner their hopes of ever being considered a legitimate destination for anyone with talent.

  48. NJ49er says:

    All the moves these clowns have made have been tied to, and around, guys with Business experience.
    They re-org for fun it seems.
    Paraag was replaced with Al Guido, another guy that specialized in sales and business related endeavors that pertained to some loose Sports interconnection.
    None of the ‘football guys’ other than Baalke have survived.
    It’s no surprise to me that things have continued to spiral out of control.
    It’s all about the stadium and outside interests with the Yorks.
    Football Ops itself doesn’t seem to get the sort of attention it desperately needs.

    • NJ49er says:

      Eddie immersed himself in the Teams he oversaw all those years.
      Hence the loyalty and devotion to him to this day.
      Need we say more?

  49. unca_chuck says:

    That wasn’t always a good thing, NJ but yeah, Eddie was all about the team.

    Thing is, I think Harbaugh would have broken whatever deal he signed to get rhat Michigan job. Otherwise where would we be? Would St Jim have stemmed the flow of talent off the team? Would he have drugged Baalke on draft day and made his own picks? The team would still suck with Harbaugh as coach.

    • Nipper says:

      No question changes are needed. Even Obama couldn’t solve this mess. Unfortunately the Yorks do not have a good feel for football. Think of all the people they’ve hired except for the Harbaugh years most have been dramatic failures. People have been fired or let go for one reason or another. I guess winning with class is just not possible. Now losing with dignity is all we have left.

  50. unca_chuck says:

    ‘Losing with dignity’ is the York ownership tenure in a nutshell.

    • Nipper says:

      . Only the Yorks can build a new stadium which is more than half empty. If this keeps up Levi’s will be like one of those ghost towns abandoned waiting for a new purpose.

  51. unca_chuck says:

    RTF, I have half a mind to think St. Jim’s handlers floated the Harbaugh to Cleveland trial balloon out there to light a fire under Jed’s ass for his extension.

    The lengths to which everyone went into denial mode is curious.

  52. Winder says:

    No one really knows the whole story on the Harbaugh situation, just a lot of speculation. The last year he was here our offense stopped being productive, injuries were part of the problem but so was the game plan. We kept running into a brick wall. At the time I thought we were actually able to be a little more innovative mostly because I thought Kap was actually able to run a pro offense. We all know now that he isn’t. Everyone knows Harbaugh is a run first coach and that works as long as you have the ability to pass. Once our defense got so injured that we gave up a lot of points opposing D’s just keyed on the run. It was very hard to watch after having such good play from the prior years. I put a lot of the blame on Harbaugh. I know now that Harbaugh really couldn’t win here with the talent we had no matter how good of a coach he is. Next to Cleveland we have the worst drafting GM in the league. Harbaugh was smart to get out. We have a situation now with the ownership of what are their true priorities. A lot of speculation with this also, but, actions tell a better story than words. I don’t see any real action at all. Once the bottom line starts to be a concern we probably will see some change. Jed’s motives need to be challenged but how to do that I don’t know.

  53. unca_chuck says:

    Yeah, that’s pretty much how I feel about the situation. Whether Harbaugh drove it, or the circumstances just fell into magical place, doesn’t really matter. By the time he left though, he saw clearly what was happening within the organization.

  54. NJ49er says:

    Chuck let me propose a new protest activity at the stadium.
    Erect Festivus Poles with a York theme.
    Everyone can gather ’round and…

  55. NJ49er says:

    These fu*kers have to go.
    Eddie for Owner Again should be flown behind planes too.
    That would probably piss Denise off more than anything else.

  56. unca_chuck says:

    Shit, give it to Eddie’s daughter. She sounds like she’s got more of a clue than the Kedorkians.

    • NJ49er says:

      Eddie may not be interested or, legally permitted to return to the NFL but….
      There’s another twist you/we can protest on.
      Our own Festivus movement…
      DeBartolo or York?
      Put it behind a plane, bumper stickers, hats etc.
      Yank The Yorks!

  57. rtfirefly says:

    Light a fire under Harbaugh, seriously? After he’s just come from his third straight NFCCG and within 6 inches of reaching the Super Bowl for the second straight year? Remember the timeline. That and not later is when the idiots tried to trade him to the worst franchise in the NFL.

    Yeah, that sounds exactly on par with the intelligence of Jed and Paraag’s other moves since they arrived over ten years ago.

    • rtfirefly says:

      I’d lose ALL respect for my employer at that point. So would any man with an ounce of pride.

  58. Nipper says:

    In conclusion: Jed is a complete and utter waste as CEO of the 49ers. Faces can change but Jed will still be around. 49ers have no future only a past.

  59. NJ49er says:

    The message needs to be, it’s FOOTBALL Jed!
    Stop with the Marketing BS, and homeage to The Faithful.
    That came with, and because of, Eddie.
    Focus on FOOTBALL!
    Stability and dedication to the Team, like Eddie practiced, is how to succeed.

  60. NJ49er says:

    Homage, not homeage…

  61. NJ49er says:

    Looks like we made an injury settlement with Ian Williams.
    Fat Man in the Middle coming?
    Making room for a roster addition?
    I’d let Armstead get that shoulder operation done now.
    We ain’t going anywhere.
    Get him repaired NOW.

  62. Winder says:

    NJ- The faithful have been around a lot longer than Eddie has. It’s easy to be faithful to a winner but for a losing franchise it takes a lot of love.

    • NJ49er says:

      Winder I agree with you.
      I’m a long distance Faithful.
      I won a Faithful Tee Shirt from the Team too 😀
      Pisses me off to see what the York’s have done to Eddie’s Legacy.
      Jed worships the Glory Days, yet he’s clueless to see the obvious.
      Eddie took care of his Team.
      Perhaps it’s Denise and Dr York that control this, I don’t know.
      Bottom line, they’re more concerned with Marketing than they are about football IMO.
      Yeh, Baalke may suck but, what have they given him?
      He (Baalke), brought them Harbaugh.
      They gave him Paraag.
      Nowhere along the way did they support the football Ops.
      They succeeded at driving everyone away.

  63. NJ49er says:

    My eldest Son proposed on the Jumbotron at Candlestick.
    All my kids, and Grandkids, came home from the hospital in 9er gear.
    I’m more than Faithful, I’m consumed.
    Kills me to see what’s going on with this Franchise.
    I’ve eaten enough sh!t to last me 3 lifetimes for my passion to the Team here in NJ.
    The York’s have destroyed what Eddie built.

  64. NJ49er says:

    They’ll bury me in a 9er Jersey, in a 9er coffin when that day comes.
    Until then, I’ll protest what the York’s are doing.
    They’re clueless about what it takes to win because they’re Business people.
    Marketing and profits is all they know.

  65. NJ49er says:

    You win in the NFL with football guys.
    Not Marketing guys with MBAs.
    Until they devote time and resources in that direction, we’re gonna spend more and more time protesting.
    They suck.

  66. Winder says:

    NJ – Most people really don’t know what it means to be a 49er fan. There were plenty of times when we didn’t play real good but for the most part we were always a very hard nosed football team. And, way before free agency most of the players were there year after year, they just seemed like part of the family. The game is nothing like it used to be. Most all the players had to have jobs outside of the game just to survive, many of them played because they loved the game. That’s what I remember most of the 49ers.

    • NJ49er says:

      Winder I envy you guys who lived there and grew up with them.
      Admittedly I didn’t have the local influence due to where life put me.
      I’ll simply say this. I’m rabid and have been for over 40yrs.
      Only wish I had the ability to flush out the York’s or, make a difference in how they do things.
      This sh!t is painful.

  67. Nipper says:

    BOO HOO !

  68. Berger says:

    I’m not a Cowboys fan but one of my friends son is playing very well for them. You guys might recognize him since he went to SJ St. His name is Keith Smith. My friend Julie Smith is a proud mom!

  69. Nipper says:

    We need a new thread. Something to get Skeebers and his pals fired up. The political campaign is about over……Hillary will win and Trump will be a huge loser. The Niners still suck no matter who wins. Jed will still be in charge. And we all will still be complaining.

  70. unca_chuck says:

    I got nothin’ Nip.Maybe you can write one.
