San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York may be one of those power players that would be better suited keeping his mouth shut. Speaking on a wide array of 49ers-related topics on Bloomberg Television earlier this week, York attempted to explain away the team’s decision to “mutually” part ways with former head coach Jim Harbaugh (via SF Gate).

Despite losing Harbaugh, Borland and Willis, York says 49ers 'trying to win a Super Bowl'

It's been quite the offseason for the 49ers. It started with losing their coach, Jim Harbaugh, in a tumultuous divorce that mired their entire season.

Couple that with the free-agent losses...

Jed York: Say One Thing, Do The Exact Opposite

It’s an old trick. And it’s also a good one. Say one thing, and do the exact opposite. That appears to be the playbook that Jed York is operating out of these days.

San Francisco 49ers plummet in the latest Power Rankings

The offseason is only unofficially upon us, as teams have made coaching and front office changes, released players to create cap space, made decisions on their own pending free agents, and started evaluating draft prospects.
