Jeff Garcia thinks fans should scrutinize the 49ers’ management

AP

Former 49ers quarterback Jeff Garcia thinks San Francisco fans have every right to be skeptical of management’s decision to get rid of coach Jim Harbaugh.

“As a fan you have to really look at the management of the organization and the decisions that they’ve made for that team,” Garcia told the Times-Standard. “Sometimes what I see . . . is you have a lot of personnel that are in positions of power that don’t have real football backgrounds. I’m not saying that’s Trent Baalke, but I’d like to see what his background is, and what gives him the true power to make those sort of decisions. . . . We know that Jed York never played football.”

Garcia said the decision of York and Baalke to fire Harbaugh reminds him of his own playing days, when York’s father and then-General Manager Terry Donahue decided to fire Steve Mariucci after a 10-6 season. That turned out to be a disaster, as the 49ers wouldn’t have a winning record for the next eight years — until they hired Harbaugh.

“Trent Baalke and Jed York together, teaming up against Harbaugh,” Garcia said. “At my time it was Mariucci against Terry Donahue and Dr. York. For whatever reason they let Steve go, they brought in Dennis Erickson . . . and two years later they’re getting rid of Dennis and going on to a number of different head coaches, a number of different changes. None of those worked out until Harbaugh was brought into the program.”

San Francisco fans have every reason to worry that under Baalke and York’s leadership, the 49ers are heading toward another eight-year stretch without a winning record.

  1. Unreal how rich non football people think that they know more than the successful football people
    Reminds me of Art Modell, who’s legacy is that, he fired two of the all time greatest head coaches, Paul Brown, and Bill Belichick.

  2. 49ers fans and the rest of the country already think the 49ers brass are fools for getting rid of Harbaugh and delusional if they think anyone believes their absurd excuses.

    No one does. Jeff Garcia is preaching to the converted.

  3. Problem is that it is really hard to do much about the owners.

    Only thing 49’ers fans can really do is vote with their feet. Of course the Yorks already got those PSL fees and any available tickets on the market would most likely be snapped up by fans of the visiting teams.

    Perhaps time to start considering something like the European soccer leagues. If finish near the bottom for a series of years, then the teams are changed out. Of course with the NFL business model bringing up a team from the “minor leagues” would not be possible but perhaps making the owners sell? Put in some provision that the team would have to be sold for the purchase price that the foul owners paid for it or less so not much profit could be made. As things are now, once you can get together enough cash to buy a team, you have a license to print cash until you die (and or sell) no matter how the team performs.

  4. He’s absolutely right, it’s refreshing to see someone speak straight nowadays.

    Fans of the 49ers (Claries) are screwed for years to come at the very least.

  5. It all started when they benched Alex Smith for Keap. They had it going and they screwed it all up. Keap is nothing more than a wild cat one trick pony. After the SuperBowl loss there was a lot of finger pointing and then it was all down hill.

  6. The whiners are a dumpster fire that cant be put out. The “coaching” staff is full of losers, got a QB who couldn’t hit the water if he fell out of a boat, and a majority of their best players have retired or moved on to greener pastures.

  7. i’m 31 years old and can’t think of another instance of a good team imploding like this.

    Something fishy is going on up there.

  8. Jeff Garcia. Always felt he was a very underrated QB. He’s not pulling any punches here. His assessment seems spot on to me. Not at all afraid to put his name on it either! Throw in a wife like that, and having to deal with T.O. at his absolute worst… We could all learn from this man. Especially S.F.

  9. He’s right. Owners without football background to include GMs are domed to fail. Look at Cincinnati and its owner/GM Brown. He was terrible and the Bengals were terrible under Lewis until he gave Marvin more power in the personnel department. I see the Santa Clara 49s faltering again. They don’t have a true franchise QB like Seattle in their division.

  10. Garcia sure didnt have any issues when he was lobbying to be the QB coach for the team. Now this just sounds like further sour grapes from him after bashing Kaepernick for choosing to work with Kurt Warner instead of him.

    The moves the 49ers have made are questionable but Garcia just comes off as bitter, especially when questioning Baalke’s background as a “football guy”, someone who has coached football and has been an NFL scout and personnel guy longer than Jeff Garcia’s entire playing career.

    The 49ers really may have screwed the pooch but the games are never decided in March and April, lets see what the team that Baalke assembles looks like out on the field before getting carried away with all the gloom and doom stuff.

  11. Most, if not all, coaches and GMs have massive egos. Much of the time it is not about doing the right thing. It’s about trying to prove you’re smarter than everyone else. It’s about doing it their way. Any dissent is removed.

  12. Everyone already thinks that way. Real Niners fans have thought that since day 1. But to say the Niners are screwed or regressing is just dumb. The media and bandwagon fans just hear what they wanna hear when in reality the Niners will be okay. Losing Willis is tough, but he was out most of the year. Bowman is coming back and is argubaly better than Willis. Borland was going to be a backup, he can be replaced. Aldon Smith is a stud on the field, he’s coming back. Love Gore but he’s 32 and Hyde is a beast. Losing Iupati is okay. He was a horrible run blocker. Losing a few corners that can be replaced is alright as well. Bringing Torrey Smith in to replace Crabs is an upgrade. Now, if we can build through the draft we will rebound nicely. Sick of people with no knowledge acting like the Niners are all of a sudden a 2-14 team.

  13. The fans should scrutinize the 49ers’ tainted Super Bowl wins with that cheater Jerry Rice.

  14. Also the comparison between Donahue and Baalke is a very lazy one at best. Donahue appeared to care far more about his ewal estate profile and hanging out in Southern California, away from the team facilities every chance he got. He signed guys to awful free agent contracts, giving injury prone players huge guaranteed money.

    That said, the 49ers collapse was largely precipitated by the crazed spending of the mid 90’s and constantly passing the buck, pushing the inevitable salary cap hell a littke further each year. Combine that with some downright awful drafting and even had Donahue been a competent GM, the team would still have collapsed. That was on Cerrato and Policy for overloading the future cap with ridiculously extended deals. At one point about half the 49ers cap space was dedicated to dead money, so whether Mariucci stayed or went, they were going to fall off.

    Donahue being disinterested and incompetent didn’t help of course. Of all the great things that Bill Walsh did for the franchise, pawning off Donahue on them may have well been the worst.

  15. You can be a successful coach without being a jerk. Jim Harbaugh was a world-class jerk. I loved it when Seattle beat them just because I loved to see him implode. I don’t think Tomsula is a great alternative, but I do see why they canned Harblah.

  16. Garcia’s just ticked off because Kap chose to train under Warner rather than him. Of course, Warner was a far better QB with much superior technique, but that won’t keep Jeff from mouthing off…

  17. More Harbaugh worship (sigh). A quick review.
    1. Talented roster assembled.
    2. Clueless coach (Singletary) fails to reach potential with club.
    3. Harbaugh lucks into Luck, gets 49ers gig.
    4. Fans/media go overboard praising Harbaugh (he had virtually no role in building roster).
    5. Harbaugh turns into self-absorbed jerk.
    6. Gets no blame for Kap’s regression in 14 (a teflon man).

    This is on Harbaugh. Mark Jackson acted like a jerk in Golden State, too. Kerr has proven you can do even better without clashing with management. With roster turnover, Tomsula won’t have the same talent to work with that Jimmy had.

    To summarize, this “Harbaugh is great, Baalke/York are jerks” narrative without examining the reality of the situation is tired and played.

  18. When you grow up already rich, you are never told “no”. You surround yourself with people who don’t ever tell you “no” and if they do, you replace them. Little boy York is just another Danny Snyder who is just a Jerry Jones wanna be. Danny’s got his yes men and now Jed has his. The Redskins are a mess and Jerry’s finally letting his son take over but only after 20 years of futility. This, 49er fans, is what you have to look forward to. Enjoy.

  19. WOW…Reading some of these posts is truely remarkable…The folks that start there blabbing by saying “49er fan” like saying that makes you instantly credible…I think fans need to quit trying to rationalize how good or bad Santa Clara is going to be…The answer to that will come in Dec or possible sooner. In my opinion you can critisize
    management and still be a fan..Harbaugh may have been difficult to deal with (I don’t Know) but so was Walsh…Dork and his lacky Baalke found it difficult that “the coach” received more accalaides then they did…Dork didn’t like somebody else playing with his toy….

  20. Guaranteeing $22mil to a one trick pony receiver shows that these guys don’t know what they are doing. Harbaugh is a jerk and is not doubt hard to get along with, but the guy produced. Of course, the proof is in the pudding and we all will see how well they do with what they have created out there.

  21. oh and PS…still hate Kaepernick. and there is not one drop of respect in my bones for him

  22. There is truth to what Jeff Garcia says even though playing in the NFL or football playing experience is not a prerequisite for success. The SF 49ers have a very similar story to the Miami Dolphins. Choosing the wrong person or people to run the football operations as a Czar. Who had more NFL experience than Bill Parcells. However it’s clear that he was one of the worst front office executives ever. The Dolphins are still recovering from the decisions of Parcells who never held a front office or executive position in the NFL.

  23. @Sports1976 is right. Scott McLoughan is the scout who assembled the roster, who then helped out Seattle. Harbaugh had a lot of talent when he took over, but he could make it work, unlike Singlrtary. I hope for the division, and for the rivalry, that SF can pull it together, but I think there are some hard years ahead for its fans.

  24. Garcia was a good QB, much better than most give him credit for. Its also good to hear someone put their opinion out there without any sugar coating. And his is absolutely dead-on.

  25. Funny that Garca didn’t have these comments so ready for the media when he was trying to talk the 49ers into letting him be the QB Coach on this new staff that he is so critical of just a few months ago…….

  26. Never really like Jim Harbaugh, but never really wanted to play his football teams either. Good coach. I feel sorry for 49er fans, both for the loss of a good coach and being stuck with the current management team.

  27. Every time this guy opens his mouth he’s talking smack. I agree with him, but I feel like he was a speed bump in a former life.

    You must be thinking of another Trent Baalke. The 49’ers Baalke never coached or played at any level. And this might be news to you but a career sitting behind a desk or up in the stands can last longer than a Pro Football career. Add in high school and college and Jeff’s been involved with football longer, and sure as heck is more knowledgeable. Between a child owner who was given a team and the ego known as Baalke the 49’ers are screwed for years to come.

  29. 49ers are such a train wreck it’s not even fun to troll them anymore. Everybody in Seattle wants them to bring back Harbaugh.

  30. And they will deserve it. Their fans came out of hiding after a decade of not being seen or heard (except to crow about pre-free agency — read: a crooked, mobbed up owner buying up all the free agents, and can’t anymore), then acted like they have the past four years. It was so good to have a repeat of the 1990 NFC Championship on their field again.

  32. There is nothing any fan can do about ownership. Hopefully, these massive egos will learn to let knowledgable people do the Xs and Os while they add to the trophy collection.
    And speaking of collection, Baalke seems to be getting better at roster-building. Despite what the “experts” say, Niners will compete for a playoff spot. It wasn’t all Harbaugh.

  33. It’s a real shame. I grew up watching Montana to Rice from afar – I’ve always been a Bears fan. The NFL is always more fun when teams like the Steelers, Raiders, 49ers, Cowboys and Packers are good. Nothing against the Panthers and Jaguars of the world – it’s just hard to hate the long-time successful teams when they suck.

    —————————
    What if ever fan were as delusional as you are.

    For
    Gore still very solid and your backup is not at all.
    I guess you don’t catch ravens games out west but Torrey Smith is nothing but ba #3 wr or slot guy. He’s basically mike Wallace who can go across the middle occasionally.

    The main problem here that his can’t accept and everyone watching the NFL past 3 years kn knows Kaepernick is not an NFL level quarterback whatsoever. Washington fans have finally accepted the end of the RG3 era and now it’s your turn.

  35. The Baalke defenders seem to miss that for a team planning for a year to can the coach seemed totally unprepared for what followed. Players retiring or defecting in free agency. They didn’t get any marqee names of the head coaches that were available like Todd Bowles. Harbaugh landed on his feet landing an awesome job coaching his old school. We’ll who really won this in 10 yr

    Please look at his rosters at Stanford and how many of those guys made it to the NFL. He connects with players and that’s what good coaches do. To think otherwise you wouldn’t know football

  37. Thanks Captain Obvious!

    I miss the days of Garcia and Mooch as much as I miss the days of Harbaugh.(yes, already) This is the same assessment I had months ago. There are parallels between this year and when mooch was let go and tons of our “star players” were gone two years later.

  38. Marquee names? LOL! Tomsula will prove himself to be a great HC and the crybabies will continue to cry. Good riddance to Harbaugh who totally blew it last season. His offensive deficiencies and clock management problems caught up to him, not to mention his undying love and support for the braindead Roman.

  39. He definitely provided a spark that the team needed after Singletary. But he never seemed to realize that the league had caught up to their offense.

  40. Owning a NFL team is a great luxury these days.
    All you have to do is hang a NFL official license on your wall, and you will have 65% of males between 16 and 70 years-old tune in. (Ask Florio) That is one hell of a market.

    It is the ultimate toy for billionaires; anybody who thinks it’s a business first only needs to check the CV of most of the G.M and owners.
    Look up Baalke on Forbes’ list of executives.

    York has a plaything not only in a team but in a new exclusive stadium. What does he care what you think?

  41. Why does Jeff just think history repeats itself? Jim did a great job but the last season was stacked with talent and he had a poor season. Employees that are not on a program of the company they work for in any industry typically find the door…. Do you live on this planet??!!

    Is Jeff just saying this as the Niners did not hire him to position Bach as he wanted?? Probably!!

    Let’s let the season play out!! At first I was leary myself but recently getting more excited to see how we do. Still stacked with talent and acquiring more..

    I was a Gore fan and still probably am but why wait for a poor season from Gore to say, yes, maybe we should have moved on and given that money to our players of the future…. That’s how you build dynasty’s!

  42. All 49er fans loved when the Pats intercepted the Hawks at the goal line. Just gloating.

  43. “You must be thinking of another Trent Baalke. The 49’ers Baalke never coached or played at any level. ”

    You know when you think you know what youre talking about but you really dont….yeah you just had one of those moments.

    Baalke actually was as an assistant coach, a DL coach as well as a strength a conditioning coach at South Dakota State and the guy who got an NFL scouting job after pushing teams to draft guys like Adam Timmerman and Adam Vinatieri.

  44. Garcia should stick to what he does best…be an unemployed QB coach. Jed York can be a twit…he’s got a lot to learn about being the CEO. Trent Baalke, however, is nobody’s fool, and if you really look at the players he’s acquired, he’s done a very credible job replacing the vets he’s lost. For sure, there’s more work to be done…alas, the draft is coming soon. There’s no telling the magic he can create picking at #15. So, for those of you who think the Niners are in a downward spiral, just keep on thinking it. You’ll be the ones eating crow…book it. Tomsula will show why he got the HC job…he’s earned the right to the job. You can book that, too.

  45. I’m a Bucs fan and didn’t see a whole lot of Garcia playing for the Niners, but he gave Tampa Bay two of the best years of QB play we ever had.

    Seriously. Ever. Its been slim pickings in Central Florida since 1976.

  46. Jeff you are way late to the party. I and all of us have already said this months ago. At least you stepped up and put your name on it. Should have said “As many have already said………”

    Nonsense Big Benny? What did I say that wasn’t accurate? Talent was in place. Singletary was overmatched. Luck was main reason for big turnaround at Stanford. Lazy journalists/gullible fans gave all the credit to Harbaugh and he soaked in all of the pandering from fans/media. Former NFL QB (Harbaugh) allowed a young QB to regress.

    Connects with players? Ask Sherman and Baldwin about that. Constant reports of Harbaugh’s college style wearing thin in 49ers locker room.

    Yeah, no reason why York and Balke cant be the next Kraft/BB duo. Said no one ever

    Ah yes, the great South Dakota State University that spawned one of the greatest kickers of our time. Quite the pedigree

  50. York’s goal was securing a brand new stadium and then selling expensive PSLs for it. He succeeded thanks to the Harbaugh’s success. Once York got his license to print money he fired Harbaugh and everyone else that would cost money to retain and replaced them with cheap subpar replacements.

    Bill has been around football his entire life. That makes him a football guy.

  52. From the Outside, it looks like 49ers(past) players agree with Garcia’s sentiment.

    Key Losses …

    1. Mike Iupati,
    2. Mike Crabtree
    3. Pat Willis
    4. Chris Borland.
    5. Justin Smith
    6. Frank Gore
    7. Stevie Johnson

    So you deplete alot of your offensive depth, and hire Steve Grogan as your OC… Your HC is a Defensive Minded guy… please tell me how this is an upgrade over having Jim.

  53. Just a warning to those who think Tomsula is the answer-sometimes a fresh start with an outsider is better. There will be Harbaugh loyalists. You could have a split locker room if things go bad. Harbaugh can coach period. He may be a heavy dose of intense jock itch but he can coach. My problem with Baalke is that he never commanded a team other than as a line coach nor played the game at a high level. He was a scout, player personnel etc. Baalke had better hit a home run in the 2015 draft. By the way he overpaid for Torrey Smith.

  54. After reading over the story all I can say is, you could be a Browns fan with our sit-com-esque owners group. It could be worse SF… As a matter of fact, after Jeff finishes whining about the SF mgmt situation, tell him to come out to the Cuyahoga for some OTA’s and a quick reunion tour. I’d almost take present day Garcia over McCown. Unless we can upgrade our QB, this year is gonna be brutal.
    And Garcia’s wife would be a DEFINITE enhancement around the Browns facility. Just sayin’.

  55. listen, this is over now…I do agree that York is an idiot and Harbaugh isn’t a coach because Dork couldn’t handle him. Maybe Harbaugh was hard to get along with, we don’t know, York hasn’t tweeted that yet. All I know is time to move on, I’m a long time Niner fan, some say there are a lot of johnny com lately fans, I don’t think that’s true…that could be said about the Seattle fan base. Where were you? now you have a good coach, who knows how to call plays when your team is on the 1 yard line. From what the experts are saying it won’t be a nice season for the Niners. The only way to hold Dork accountable is not to go to the games. I don’t know how they’ll play but I’ll still root for them. Go Niners

  56. Say whatever you want about Harbaugh. He was an arrogant idiot, he was self-centered, he was a jerk. All those things are true, but he was was one other thing, he was a damn good coach. I hope Tomsula does half as well. Good luck to him.

  57. There have been plenty of football-savvy owners who never got it right, and a number who never played who did (the best example being the crew in New England). The fact that Jed York hasn’t played football doesn’t make him a bad owner. It’s being an insecure arrogant little money-grubbing weasel that makes him a bad owner.

  58. People may laugh but honestly I think Jeff Garcia knows more about the Niner’s football team needs and how to win on the field than Baalke/Dorks/Tom Sula (The 3 Stooges!). I say the fans start a petition to put Jeff Garcia in charge. He’s a great local guy, from San Jose, went to SJSU, always a great qb, presence, positive, good mentor, intelligent, and a true gamer. Jeff Garcia for Headcoach . . Jeff Garcia for Headcoach! . . . Jeff . . Jeff . . Jeff!!!!!

  59. York and Baalke could be leading this team to mediocrity but as long as they are making money there is no incentive to make changes. It is all up to the fans.

  60. I agree with a little of what you say nonyt, but for you to say he’s arrogant, idiot, jerk, how do you know this? why is being strong willed, wanting to win being an idiot or jerk? do you know him personally or interacted with him to know this? I know people who want to win rub people the wrong way, this is true. His team, players all said they wanted him to stay. Yes Harbaugh was brash, you have to have that winning attitude to win. I do agree with you, I hope Tomsula does well. But you’re being too hard on him. York should have found a way…but it is his team and he picks who he wants to be there. Remember, Walsh wasn’t always the nice man, but he was a winner. Go Niners

  61. Garcia is right. Good HC’s are a prerequisite AND very hard to find. Good GM’s are important too, but I’d much rather find one of them than find a winning HC. SF should have done whatever was necessary to keep Harbaugh. They will be sorry, as Denver will be sorry for getting rid of Fox!!!!

  62. to theonlysane1intheroom…really? Jerry cheated? you really don’t know football. Some still saying that the 49er faithful were quiet, during the 8 year we had sub standard teams, they were still selling out. Now we hear about the 12th man, how great they are, where were you prior to Holmgren and Carroll? both by the way who were 49er coaches…check out Bill Walsh’s legacy tree. I won’t talk bad about any team, all teams go through those times. To the seattle seahawks fans, gloat all you want, by the way, nice call on the 1 yard line. No team is perfect, no coach is perfect and no owner is perfect. This does remind me of the Dallas years when Jones replaced Johnson with Switzer (sp) He couldn’t talk in front of a mic, same with Tomsula..but I still will root for our team, Go Niners

  63. now I know cri33 isn’t saying Walsh wasn’t a good coach. Walsh had 2 great QB’s he coached in Cincinnati, Ken Anderson and another QB who’s name I forgot, who’s career was cut short by shoulder injury. The West Coast offense was 1st called Bill Walsh offense. Yes, he benefitted from that, so did all the other NFL teams. The difference cri33 was coaching. It always comes down to coaching. He helped Joe M become the best QB of all time (I know, Tom B is great). He with Joe turned that team around along with a great defense. The 1981 SB team had nothing to do with money. Harbaugh’s time at SF proves it’s coaching, coaching, coaching. Money helps but WA Redskins proves that money doesn’t win championships. talent with great coaching wins

  64. That is right…money and talent. DeBartolo once said “I pay for the best and I expect the best” and he got pissed off more than a couple of times when the 49ers didn’t win when he thought they should have….

  65. cri33, you proved my point…coaching is the ingredient, you can buy all talent you want, if good coaching doesn’t do it, money won’t. My case is the WA Redskins, the owner is throwing money at that team and what good has that done? You think what you want but you really are thinking money is what made Walsh success. 1984 another SB victory, money wasn’t a great factor. It started in 1985 when Eddie D starting spending. After Walsh left as you know he went to Stanford for I think 2 more years, his 1st year he did good, 2nd year his best had left him. Hope you have a great day

  66. But these days a GM can’t keep a team loaded with costly talent intact. That was part of my point.

  67. Too bad most 49er fans have no idea who Jeff Garcia is, otherwise they might be inclined to listen to him. Well the few dozens who are still clinging to the sinking ship anyways

  68. I know who Garcia is but he doesn’t need to throw in his 2 cents on what has become an obvious issue.

  69. 49ers are going to be better than last year. All thus gnashing of teeth over some off season moves is ridiculous. They haven’t lost a game this year yet! Seattle can’t say that. You want crown them, then crown them. I say play the games.

  70. Look at all the haters especially all the Shehawks fans on here crying acting like they just won the super bowl hahaha oops .Last year we had 13 or so on injured reserve by the end of the year and still went 8 and 8 we get those players back this year and criticism of Kaep is getting tired we had Johnathon Martin at tackle who looked worse than a turnstile in NYC subway had 3 different centers and then you wonder why Kaep regressed people please if you want to run your mouth watch some tape and get a clue first you look look foolish when you rant about something your clueless about.Niners are gonna be good .NINER4LIFE
