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.

There are a lot of storylines surrounding the upcoming Week 13 matchup between the San Francisco 49ers and the Miami Dolphins. First, it features Dolphins coach Mike McDaniel going up against his former mentor, Kyle Shanahan. It will also feature running backs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. returning to Levi's Stadium for the first time. But don't discount the storyline of McDaniel being concerned about facing the 49ers defense—specifically, Nick Bosa. On Monday, the Dolphins coach was asked about his concern about game planning for the 49ers' talented pass rusher without left tackle Terron Armstead, who has been ruled out due to a pectoral injury. "If Nick Bosa has a pulse, you're concerned," McDaniel responded (h/t



49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo on NFL future: "I'll worry about that at the end of the year"

Jimmy Garoppolo is setting himself up for a nice payday next year. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is scheduled to be a free agent, and his market is expected to be much improved compared to this past offseason. Garoppolo expected to be elsewhere this season, even after his trade stock plummeted following offseason shoulder surgery. With no one interested in a quarterback going through rehab, Garoppolo signed a restructured one-year deal with the 49ers to serve as Trey Lance's backup. The one caveat being that San Francisco couldn't use the franchise tag on him in 2023, allowing him to test the free agent market freely. Garoppolo entered the season looking to support Lance and do what he could in his role as QB2. However, everything changed in Week 2 when
