Bay Area Buzz


Lynch was a beast in the NFL for many years. He was feared by offenses and one of the reasons Tampa’s defense was so exciting to watch. Those days may be gone, but Lynch is beginning a new NFL legacy, as the GM for the San Francisco 49ers.


The 49ers weren’t very good last season, they only won two games, but Lynch believes his team is not as bad as their record indicates. Lynch knows they have to make some strides on his roster, but also notes that when he watches film that he does not see a 2-14 football team. Lynch likes his offensive and defensive lines, it excites him by knowing that these are the starting areas of the team that wins or loses football games.


He also knows that his roster has issues and need improving, but the main position he wants to improve upon is the quarterback. Lynch has been steadily working to rebuild his football team and started that rebuilding by hiring former longtime Broncos scout, Adam Peters as VP of player personnel and then moved to have Kyle Shanahan as his HC.


The Niners new GM and HC have six years to turn the team around and they wasted no time in working on beefing up their lacking positions. CB K’Waun Williams, DT Earl Mitchell, and WR DeAndre Carter were recently signed, and although they are not huge name signings it is a start.


The Niners will have plenty of chances during the upcoming draft to continue rebuilding the team as they have 10 draft picks heading to the 2017 draft, including the number two overall selection.


Can Lynch turn the 49ers around? That remains to be seen, but what he is doing seems to be creating a buzz around the Bay.
