GM Candidates, including Jimmy Raye (merge)

Recommended Posts

Think Jimmy Raye may be be stepping in as GM given the fact that he interviewed for San Fran's GM? Irsay seems methodical, so I'm sure he has someone lined up.

I have been saying this on the Grigson fired thread all along. I say the most likely thing to happen is Raye being promoted to GM and having the choice of keeping or firing Pagano. 

 

What is the alternative? Peyton (not happening guys, not unless someone works with him for a year or two or more)? Gruden (ship has sailed imo)? other GM candidates (we would have heard rumors and no way he does so without a formal interview or meeting)?

Wasn't it Raye who was instrumental in the aquisition of Daniel Adongo?

You've asked this before. What makes you think that's the case?

I think this might be the most team-friendly option if Pagano and his coaches are retained.

That would suck...

 

Come on.....

 

You have no idea if it would suck.

 

You don't know Jimmy Raye or what he wants to do or if he ever disagreed with Grigson?

 

He might be good.

 

I'm not saying he should be promoted....     I'm just saying we don't know if he'd be bad....

If we a changing I want a complete clean start nobody associated with old regime...Gruden and Manning or the Shanahans would be great..

Possible.  Only thing that i would find odd about this is why it would have taken this long to make that move. Could have done that weeks ago. Unless the Manning negotiations are what pushed it this far back?  How about Manning and Raye working together, i like the sound of that lol.

Raye steps into Ryan's job, and Peyton steps into Raye's old job. Pagano to be reevaluated. That's what I'm thinking.

...and I'm sure he has some input in our recent picks,,..which were good

 

Sounds like a lot of the Grigson exit was powered by personality

Actually, the more I think about it the more I'm okay with it.

He has a lot of experience and did some good things with the Chargers. And he's well liked.

Now that Trump is President, maybe it's ok to be indelicate and ask, Was Raye a serious candidate for 49ers or the token minority interviewee?

Irsay just said in his presser "Coach Pagano will be going to be working closely with Jimmy Raye" and sounds like the 2 of them are heading to the senior bowl together next week.

Seriously though by the way Irsay was talking I think that Jimmy Raye will be our GM

If Pagano is indeed coming back it really won't matter much, at least for 2017.

Chris Ballard seems like an interesting candidate.

Didn't irsay say raye and him are gonna look for another gm?

He said Raye will be interviewed for the spot.  I think Raye is going to be the interim GM since he and Pagano are going to the Senior Bowl on Monday

    • But a team might evaluate their own O line and it just might not be as good as our revamped line.  Thus, last years performance under pressure is on tape, and telling.     Draft QB's in round 1 are cheap, and you control them for a minimum of 5 years.  The price for starting QB's (even unproven) not on a rookie contract are astronomical.     Draft QB's in round 1 are cheap, and you control them for a minimum of 5 years.  Backup QB's are often 2nd and 3rd day picks, have some NFL experience and teams have a fairly decent (yet not perfect) grasp of their ceiling.  JB has much work to develop more than Jimmy Garopolo has.
    • He holds the ball too long and is slow to recognize when a WR is coming open.   Some of that is because he was hammered every play. AND... he has a slow release.   I hope he develops into a great backup........  but I would also say, my confidence, until he proves quite a bit more, is lacking
    • Brissett will be better than last year.  Its surprising how everyone forgets he was running for his life every play.  Even Andrew struggled with that pressure... all QBs do.  Brissett will be much better with a year's experience under his belt and an OL that can protect him. other GMs know this and it WILL affect his value.  The way teams spend on unproven QBs, i can see a team or two offering a 2nd or 3rd.  Heck, the Jets gave up 3 to move up only 3 spots to land an unproven QB.  And they really didnt even know WHICH unproven QB they would get.  Some teams get desperate for a starting QB, as we have seen over and over. if we dont get the trade we want, use him until FA in  2 years. i think, under the circumstances (which were stacked against him), Brissett performed better than people give him credit for.
    • If I’m a GM I say one thing.. ‘Good lord no.’   He’s a garbage person.
    • Exactly about the Rockets,  Exactly about LeBron and a game 7 too.  I am not sure the Celtics want that, home or away.  They need to win this game.  I have a bad feeling if the Cavs win tonight easily that they'll win the next 2 after that too.  I guess we'll see.  Be nice to see Boston win tonight! I agree!
