For the first time in about 4 years, there is excitement in the air around the 49ers. John Lynch may be a guy with no front office experience, but he did what hasn’t been done since the Yorks took the wheel and drove Good Ship Niners into a sandbar and caused more than a decade of turmoil and angst. And that is to get a real Executive VP of Football Operations into the building in Adam Peters. He’s a VERY highly regarded talent evaluator, having worked for the Patriots for 8 years as a scout, and the director of scouting for the Broncos for the past 6 years.
If anything, this at least proves that there is a chance that Lynch/Shanahan can bring in talent to fill out the coaching spots. Lots of names out there like Tony Dungy for D.C. who has ties to Lynch.
Works for me. Guarded optimism bordering on quiet confidence. The draft is looking better already. Baalke, for all his faults was always good at stockpiling picks. We have 12.
