- The 49ers have prioritized their defense through the draft
- Swung hard from some key free agents
- Made brave trades when opportunity arose
- We prioritized our O-Line in the draft
- Avoided 'overpaying' for free agents and focused on the second tier
- Were conservative in trades
Which strategy was right? I suppose the records speak for themselves?
Not sure why you're trying to push back so hard....
1. Making 3-5 times more money(maybe more?) for doing less work is typically all it takes to get someone to change their job or career. That alone is typically enough for most people.
But you can add to that....
2. Whether it's Southern California, or if it was New York, it's one location and that beats the life of a scout who is typically away from home more than half the year staying in not great hotels and putting in 12-16 hour days in far away places.
3. He doesn't have to worry about having to uproot his family again because his team didn't ahve a good year. Jeremiah was a scout for 3 different teams. That's three moves for the family. In his TV job, he's not going anywhere.
4. He's likely doing a fair amount of his work from the comfort of his own home. He can view tape at his home. And he has a staff of people that help with the show he works on.
5. He gets to pick and choose when and where he goes on the road. Doubtful he has someone giving him orders. He's likely his own boss.
6. Far less stress. It's not do good or get fired. To be clear, he has to be good at his job, but it's easier in ths setting than it is as a scout. No one is looking over his shoulder and breathing down his neck. Life is good for DJ.
If you don't like him, or like someone else more, great. Follow them. But I'm not aware of any anti-DJ movement either from complaints coming from the NFL or from media observers.
