I didn't. But when you and Jonathan mentioned that, I remembered, and barfed a little in my mouth. Thanks guys.

Enjoy it while it lasts, buddy. But, good on ya, the Seahawks have struggled long and hard since they came into the league with the Buccaneers. I still remember the Seahawks beating the Buccaneers in that inaugural season. And Zorn and Largent were fun to watch. So was Kenny Easley. And Brian Bosworth.



(was just checking if you were paying attention, with that last one)

I don't know if I would agree with that. Kyle Shanahan is a very smart guy. His offense scored 27 points against the New England Patriots with Rex Grossman as quarterback for goodness sake. He made RGIII look like a franchise QB in his rookie season. And look at what he's done with Atlanta this year. I would say the exact opposite. Shanahan has long been ready to take the next step up for quite a while now. In fact, good money says he's probably going to wind up being a better coach than his daddy in the long run.

Strange choice, but not shocking considering this same organization ran a coach that got them to within a few yards of a Lombardi out of town, and then hired another coach who ran all the talent out of town on his prior team. The owners in SF don't have a clue IMO and I think this will be Matt Millen 2.0.

I think this was shocking hire for me. Lynch had no experience in the front office and neither did Matt Millen before becoming GM of the Lio

PS, Lynch was recently the NFL on Fox analyst which he began in 2008.

Another fine move by Jed York. The Shanahan hire doesn't bother me though.

IQ, general smartness. GM Football-wise, time will tell. Not that any of the 3 are dumb mind you.

This is a clear Rooney violation. Alright, alright, maybe the Niners did interview females and/or candidates of color. But I'm calling bull, especially Lynch being given a long term deal!

On the flipside of a possible 'Rooney violation', females or candidates of color might have been done a favor, by not being hired for this now nonsense of an organization......!
