The Ballad of Jed York: A Developing Story

Patrick Goulding IIAnalyst INovember 24, 2010

To the tune of the Beverly Hillbillies Theme


Come and listen to a story ‘bout a man named Jed,

A young college grad who tried to run the Gold and Red,

Had big dreams, like his Uncle Eddie,

But his team was far from problem-free.


Dismal that is, five years out of the playoffs.


In his very first year, the team was in despair,

People all said “Get Nolan out of there!”

So Jed sent him packin’, Gave the team to Coach Sing,

Yeah but still the Niners are no closer to a ring.


3-7 that is, last in the West.


So Jed has him some tough decisions to make this next spring,

Does he try to stay the course, or does he fire Coach Sing?

If there’s a silver lining, just remember this is true:

Eddie D. had some struggles in his first couple years too!


And history has a way of repeating itself.


Keep the Faith!
