Since I didnt become a Jags fan until 2010, I was watching highlights from 2004 and I seen Greg Jones. How long has been playing for us??? I had no idea he had been around that damn long. Hell that was 9 years ago. Was that his first year with us, or his second?

Uh oh....

Agreed. Though I would imagine they probably got requests to interview from other teams looking to replace coaches. In all fairness, if the owner hasn't made a commitment on his GM yet, why mandate everyone stick to their contracts?

Yeah 04 was Greg Jones' first year. He had a few seasons that he sat out because of knee injuries, so I guess you can really say he hasn't played 8 full seasons at this point.

@JayGlazer: Jacksonville has tabbed Dave Caldwell as their new GM, the two sides are trying to work out a contract.

Done deal with Caldwell.

DuvalDude - Greg Jones was one of two second round picks in the '04 draft along with Daryl Smith.  At the time he was perceived more as a power halfback than a fullback and as a complementary back to Fred (one of several the Jaguars tried to use to spell Fred before striking gold with MJD).  He had 62 carries in 2004, 151 in 2005 (when Fred was injured for part of the year).

In '06 he missed the entire year with injury and then reinvented himself as the quality fullback we know and love today.
The tourist would realize at once that he had struck the Land of Flowers - the City Beautiful!

We can only hope. The thing about all the GM candidates is that none of them have GM experience. So not matter who we hired. its pretty much rolling the dice. He has a solid resume. I hope he works out. Just anxious to see what he's going to do.

He was a scout for Polian... then for the Falcons... pretty good pedigree.

And as the dominoes are falling...

Caldwell - GM
C. Polian - Personnel Director
Roman - HC

QB- Alex Smith??

Seems like Caldwell was the up and coming hot hire on the market this off-season as well. It's also encouraging that Khan was able to steal him away from the Jets who were trying to interview him. I think that says a lot about the vision that Khan was selling.

@AlbertBreer - The Jets, scrambling a bit after losing out on Caldwell, put in a request to speak with Telesco this week. But Telesco has pushed that back.

I'd love to get Alex Smith as a QB, but not sure what I'd be willing to give up in trade for him. He's still under contract right?

I am not sure the Niners have much of a choice but to release him. He is due a one million dollar roster bonus at beginning of March. If he is still on Niners roster in April, his salary of 7 million becomes guaranteed. I doubt they will pay a backuip that kind of money. Now if he is released, teams like the Chiefs and Cardinals could also be interested in him. I think Smith is a solid player but I am not sure I would make a huge financial investment in him.

True, but I'm going off the premise that Roman is the new HC.  Someone who knows firsthand what Alex Smith is capable of....

With the ties back of SF, I'm wondering if we could pick him up on the cheap, look at shipping Henne somewhere and leave Gabbert on the bench for another season, at least.  If we need a 3rd QB, there's always Jordan Palmer, who seems to play well, albeit against the 3rd stringers.

Worst case scenario, if we needed a 3rd, we could always get Bouman off the tractor again.   ;D
