How much is enough Jed?
November 5, 2015
I ask this simple question Jed. How much is enough? How much money is enough for you to begin to care about winning? Lets be serious you own a NFL Team to make money. I am not against making money but you are doing it at the sake of your franchise. Your family has a net worth in the hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars. You have a fancy new stadium that will make you millions every year, but you have put that in front of the 49ers players, coached, fans and legacy.
Enough is enough Jed. Stop running the 49ers from the top down and build it from the bottom up. In the words of Ricky Bobby, “If you’re not first, you’re last.” Winning isn’t one thing to consider running a NFL team. It needs to be the only thing. That starts with the players and the coaches. You’re uncle had a rough start when he took over the 49ers for sure, but he realized winning solves everything. So he went out and got the players and the coaches that can make that happen. Did he get along with the legendary Bill Walsh all the time, absolutely not. I have heard on many occasions he called for Walsh to be fired. However, he saw the value of having a coach like Walsh. You couldn’t get along with Harbaugh so you fire him instead of swallowing your silver spoon fed ego and sitting down with Harbaugh and asking 1 simple question. How do we make this work?
Eddie cared about his players. If you don’t know the story of Jeff Fuller and what Eddie did for him after he sustained a serious arm injury you need to look that up. Players play the game Jed. The owners support them. It is not the other way around. Instead of standing behind your players by admitting you made some serious mistakes in the off season you have decided to run and hide. Be a man Jed and admit your mistakes, you owe it to your players to sit down with them and work this out.
How do you fix this?
- Get Rid of Trent Baalke. He has been bad for years. Go hire a GM that can turn this around. Bill Poulian is high on my list.
- Go hire a Head Coach that is gonna change the culture and let him run it the way he wants. Cower, Dungy, Holmgren, and Jon Gruden come to mind. No offense to Tomsula but he ain’t the Head Coach to turn this around.
- Make the team the priority. During the season Levis is a football stadium and that is it. No concerts or tractor pulls.
