94 percent of 49ers fans want Trent Baalke fired

Nov 29, 2016 at 2:17 PM--


We polled thousands of San Francisco 49ers fans and, unsurprisingly, the overwhelming majority believe that general manager Trent Baalke needs to go. Almost 94 percent of the Niner Faithful believe that Baalke is the main problem with the franchise's demise and that he should be gone at the end of the season.

The 94 percent majority is made up of two groups. The first are the nearly 56 percent that Baalke alone should be fired at the end of the season. The second are the nearly 38 percent that believe Baalke and head coach Chip Kelly should not return in 2017.

What may surprise you is that over 5 percent of fans believe that Baalke and Kelly should both remain for a 2017 campaign. 1 percent believe that Kelly alone should be let go and that Baalke should remain.

Scenario Fan Vote
Baalke gone 56.11%
Baalke and Kelly gone 37.72%
Baalke and Kelly stay 5.09%
Kelly gone 1.08%

"I feel bad for the fans, I feel bad for a lot of people, the ownership in particular," Baalke told Ted Robinson and Tim Ryan on Sunday prior to kickoff. "You know, they give us everything we need and I've said that. I've gone public with that. If we don't get it done, put it on me."

Baalke has officially served as the team's general manager since 2011. He started his tenure with the 49ers in 2005 as their Western Region Scout. In March of 2010, the 49ers terminated the contract of then general manager Scot McCloughan, leaving Baalke to head the draft during the following month. He briefly served as the Vice President of Player Personnel for the 49ers before being promoted to general manager following the firing of head coach Mike Singletary.

Poor drafting and a lack of activity in free agency resulted in a 49ers team that has set the franchise record for consecutive losses in a season – now at 10. At 1-10, the Baalke built 49ers have the second-worst record in the league and are considered by many to be among one of the least talented rosters in the league.

The real story here might be the nearly 6 percent that believe Baalke should remain.

49ers mailbag: Is Shanahan on the hot seat? Did the coach not want to draft Trey Lance? How's the interior OL look? And other questions answered

The San Francisco 49ers won...and lost on Sunday. The win came by beating the Seattle Seahawks, something the 49ers have not done much of over the last 10 years. The loss came when Trey Lance broke his ankle. He's believed to be lost for the season. It's been a rough first two weeks for 49ers fans. First there was the frustrating loss in Chicago, and now the injury to Lance. And to make matters worse, running back Ty Davis-Price sustained a high-ankle sprain that could sideline him for a few weeks. As you well know, Elijah Mitchell will already miss about two months with an MCL sprain. Injuries are beginning to mount. But fortunately for you, I'm fully healthy and ready to share this week's 49ers mailbag with you. Let's get to it. How many QBs

The San Francisco 49ers will host the Seattle Seahawks at Levi's Stadium on Sunday. The division matchup is the home opener for Kyle Shanahan and his team, and the head coach is looking forward to the fans making an impact after a disappointing Week 1 road outing against the Chicago Bears. "[There's definitely a different energy] when you are at home," Shanahan said after Friday's practice, the last of the week before Sunday's game. "I think the advantage on the road, I always talk to our players, there's an advantage with concentration and stuff on the road. When you get on a plane, usually right now, you're there, you don't have family in town, things like that. So those are the only reasons you like being on the road." Of course, there are typically more

That one was super loud from the start to the finish. I was so happy to be back home in front of our fans. "It's The Faithful. They call them The Faithful for a reason, so it was super fun to be back out there." The 49ers welcomed a return to Levi's Stadium after a disappointing and unexpected
