FTW ranks Baalke-Kelly GM-coach combo at No. 25 in the NFL

Dec 7, 2016 at 9:55 PM--


Steven Ruiz of For the Win ranked all of the general manager and head coach combinations in the NFL. Now, these days, when the San Francisco 49ers are involved in any online ranking, you can just scroll to the bottom of the article to read what they had to say about the team. That didn't happen this time, which may be a shock to fans that want nothing more than to see general manager Trent Baalke gone.

You didn't need to scroll too far up from the bottom to find the 49ers, though. The combination of Baalke and head coach Chip Kelly has the team listed at number 25 in the ranking.

"Last season, Chip Kelly the GM sabotaged Chip Kelly the coach," wrote Ruiz. "Now it's Baalke's turn to do so. The 49ers' roster is devoid of talent, and it's looking more and more like the success this franchise enjoyed at the start of the decade had more to do with Jim Harbaugh and Scot McCloughan than it did Baalke."

Fans likely agree with that assessment. They have been calling for the firing of Baalke for a while now. After all, he has been the man in charge of a roster that has diminished greatly since the 49ers' Super Bowl appearance of the 2012 season. And yes, it was a roster primarily built by McCloughan that went to the Super Bowl. While reports have stated that Kelly's job is likely safe, Baalke may very well be on the hot seat.

It won't be long until fans find out Baalke's fate. The team has only four games left in what has been an embarrassing 1-11 season.

"The NFL draft and the Power Rankings don't mix," wrote NFL.com contributor Dan Hanzus. That didn't stop him from trying. Hanzus released his latest power rankings, his first since a post-free-agency version in March, and has the San Francisco 49ers jumping up three spots to No. 9.
