Millen and Lynch were fine football players and also excellent television color analysts (Millen was especially talented in that job). But that seems like the extent of their qualifications as General Managers for an NFL team. John Elway, for example, had some experience and familiarity with the job with an Arena team
Neither has worked in a front office, scouted, managed scouting teams, made trades or any of the other hundreds of things a GM has to do.
Millen, by all accounts failed. Lynch, time will tell. But the zero for one should be a cautionary tale for the 49ers, no?
