Return of the Jed

It was only a matter of time.

For the past two years, Jed York has been quiet, almost invisible. Leaving Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch alone to do their jobs.

Over the weekend, however, word leaked out of 49er HQ that York had sold two seats in this year’s Draft Room for $22,000. Also, a package including a training session with Jimmy Garoppolo and a road trip with the team that fetched $29,000.

The dollar amounts are both ridiculously high and meaninglessly low. High for the bozos buying in, low for the “charity” getting the dough.

The idea of two rich schmucks sitting in the Draft Room during the draft can mean only one thing: York will be strutting around in there trying to look vital to the process of football. No good ever comes from that.

What’s next? Locker room seats, so one can watch the boys getting dressed for a game?

The biggest news the 49ers have made so far in FA is not trading for Odell Beckham. Not sure why the team circulates this sort of non-news. Is it to impress us schmucks in some way? Why advertise failure? Then follow that up by insisting the team doesn’t really need a true Number One wide receiver.

Maiocco says the Niners addressed their woeful DB issues by signing Jason Verrett and re-signing Jimmie Ward. This is taking homerism to a new level. If it’s hanging off his torso, Verrett has broken it or torn it. He won’t make it through the year and neither will the equally oft injured Ward.

Is Verrett here merely to scare Tarvarius Moore or Ahkello Witherspoon into being better than they are? And if either of these two actually becomes a good CB, you can look for opposing QBs to stop letting Dickhead Sherman get away with playing ten to fifteen yards off the LOS on virtually every play.

All we know for sure is that whoever starts in the secondary at the beginning of the year won’t be there at the end. Get ready for another year of Antone Exum and Marcell Harris.

    OMG! That rascal Jed is at it again, why can’t he disappear forever? I truly doubt he’s holding back charity money that would be really stupid. As far as I have read he does a lot of charity work and gets a lot of good press for it. It’s true that some major players in the charity business are crooks but I don’t think Jed is one of them. Anyway, i don’t see what he did or said as meddling or complaining. We shall see.

    The Browns have a new head coach this year in Freddie Kitchens who has only last year served as an offensive coordinator and before that has been mainly a tight ends and RB coach.
    This is similar to what happened to the Niners when an inexperienced Tomsula was elevated to the HC position.

    Is Kitchens the right person for the job or is it too big for him? If the Browns don’t make the playoffs the season will be deemed a failure considering all the moves they made.

    When Lynch traded for Dee Ford he smartly traded a future second round pick in 2020 for Ford.
    If Lynch had traded this year’s 2nd round pick it would have been pick #36.
    With improvement the second round pick most likely will be in the late 40’s or early 50’s.
    Essentially because this is a future pick the value is diminished and it equates to trading a 3rd rounder for Ford.
    Lynch deserves credit for being able to keep this year’s second round pick.

    Offseason workout schedule

    The offseason consists of three “phases” of workouts with increasing levels of activity along the way.
    Phase One consists of the first two weeks of the program with activities limited to strength and conditioning and physical rehabilitation only.
    Phase Two consists of the next three weeks of the program. On-field workouts may include individual player instruction and drills as well as team practice conducted on a “separates” basis. No live contact or team offense vs. team defense drills are permitted.
    Phase Three consists of the next four weeks of the program. Teams may conduct a total of 10 days of organized team practice activity, or “OTAs”. No live contact is permitted, but 7-on-7, 9-on-7, and 11-on-11 drills are permitted.

    Niners Schedule
    First Day: April 15
    OTA Offseason Workouts: May 20-21, May 23, May 28-29, May 31, June 3-4, June 6

    An ex-Niner name from past that you thought was done resurfacing with Seahags

    It has surfaced that Aaron Rodgers has always put some blame on McCarthy for not making him the first pick when the Niners took Alex Smith.

    Turns out Rodgers ego just wouldn’t let it go and the Packers might have won more if it weren’t for the dysfunction.

    Could Aaron Rodgers be a bigger jerk than Big Ben?

    A-Rod is a diva Bullit.
    Never saw him as a team-first guy.
    Petty little priss.
