    Baalke blunder, but this one is also on Chip... my god was Baalke just really bad at his job.
    The lack of anything positive about his performance is kind of loud ... but is there any reason to not wait until they spend a little time in pads?

    I can't blame Baalke entirely since there was a lot of positives being said about him leading up to the draft and supposedly there was a team shortly after the 49ers pick looking to take him. That said, he certainly didn't fit the new offensive system so he was starting out behind.

My only concern is smaller players in a big physical sport are likely to get hurt. So will these small quick guys last 16+ games? I personally don't expect any iron men on this offense.

    As for York... Only winning will change his reputation with me. His ego interfered with Harbaugh, and for York and his parents, its the only success the 49ers have ever enjoyed under this ownership group. This is still a 6-10 team that's finished dead last in two straight years in the division, so they better win.
    These things go in cycles.

    The NBA, like the NFL has been prioritizing length over size because it's much faster to move your hand than your whole body. But you have to find players who have good power without the size. The result was defenses getting bigger and bigger, Shanahan's response is to get smaller qnd quicker to take advantage of defenders who can't change direction as quickly.
