    As in, former player, 0 front office experience, analyst for FOX Sports John Lynch?!

    Yeah err...good luck, maybe it works out, maybe this sort of move has worked before somewhere, but from player to FOX commentator to GM -- my first reaction is, Matt Millen 2.0

    I would assume they're hiring a lawyer or accountant to negotiate all the contracts.

    This is a bit puzzling. The guys never even been a scout. He calls games on Fox. Lol.

    Harbaugh has to be laughing at what this franchise has turned into since he left.

    He's very cerebral and a very hard worker.

    Guy probably will be suffering from CTE before he has the chance to get fired.

    Most dysfunctional team in all of sports. They are the Mississippi of sports teams. When you think your team is fucked up, remind yourself you not a 49er's fan.....

    NFL equivalent to when the Sacramento Kings hired Vlade Divac

    It is, but as you obviously know the NBA is a lot more cut and dry especially in terms of contract structure. There's only two rounds of drafts and one can spend two weeks watching draft film to prepare for the draft.

    I'd like to know what the hell the 9ers are thinking. On the flip side it's absolutely awesome if it works out.

    Something like this can always yield that wow factor in holy shit it worked out. But why would they lock themselves into this tryout for six years? They want to give Shanahan the same deal and tie them at the hip.

    I guess it can't get much worse for them. And I've already typed way more than needs to be said on this topic.

    We all criticize the 49ers for this hire (myself included), but what the fuck have the Jets done differently?

    Poorly run franchises that "rebuild" every 2-3 years : Jets, 49ers, Browns, Raiders (jury is still out), Titans, Jaguars, Bills, Dolphins.

    We will be doing something similar this time next year so prepare yourselves.
