    This is an unexpected surprise. But couldn’t have happened to a better guy. San Fran huh? I could offer congrats and condolences all at the same time. lol. Just kidding. The 49ers are a storied franchise and maybe John can help them regain that glory. Congrats and good luck, John Lynch!

    John has always been one of my favorite players. He’s also developed into one of my favorite commentators. OK, maybe I’m biased. But he is a smart, articulate, experienced man who knows the ins and outs of the NFL. He’s well respected and personable. However, none of that matters as he becomes a GM unless he’s also a good leader, organizer, and talent evaluator. Jason Licht seems to be a good leader and organizer but I’m still evaluating his talent evaluation abilities. He’s hit or miss like most. How will ol’ Lynch do? We’ll see. I wish him the best and I have no doubt he’s going to hit it hard.

    I hope it works out great for John, who is one of the really great guys in the league. Having zero front office or scouting or management experience, however, I am concerned that this might set John up for failure, such as happened with Matt Millen, another former player and game caller who failed miserably as GM in Detroit. San Francisco’s current ownership is also incompetent for the most part, ever since Eddie DeBartolo was forced out. There is a great deal of career risk in this for John, but I wish him only the best.

      I’d be inclined to agree with you here. This was pretty shocking to me. I’m super happy for John and hope he succeeds, but being a player and a GM would be vastly different I would suppose. Ad that to not having a franchise QB on the roster, this could set him up for failure. He did get a six year deal out of it though, so I assume they are going to give him some time.

    Lynch is a smart dude, knows talent, and knows how to win. I think he will do good. Best wishes to Lynch and his family.
