Final games will determine Jim Tomsula’s fate

Nov 18, 2015 at 4:06 PM--


Bleacher Report's Jason Cole is reporting that, per a source, San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula's job may be safe for next season if the team is competitive down the stretch this season.

Cole, the same person that reported that ex-49ers LB Patrick Willis was considering a comeback, states that the only way Tomsula would be let go is if the team were to 'nose dive' during their remaining games – meaning they would need to be blown out during a number of those match-ups. If the team were to be competitive during those games, even losing a number of them, Tomsula would likely be back for another season.

"If this team continues to be competitive as it has over the past four games – it's won two of its past four – to kind of right the ship, then everything is going to be okay for Tomsula and he should remain as the coach next season," says Cole.


If accurate, what this means is that we will be able to determine Tomsula's fate based on the team's performances in these final games of the season. Even if they lose the majority of their games, if those games are determined by management to be 'competitive,' then Tomsula would remain.

The 49ers will face the Seahawks in Seattle on Sunday, November 22.

49ers' Last Four Games
Baltimore Ravens W 25-20
Seattle Seahawks L 3-20
at St. Louis Rams L 6-27
Atlanta Falcons W 17-16

What is interesting about the report is that Cole states that the 49ers have been competitive over their past four games. They were anything but competitive against the Seattle Seahawks and St. Louis Rams – so take this report for what it is worth.

Cole's report of a possible Patrick Willis comeback was shot down by Willis himself in record time.

The San Francisco 49ers have announced that the team has placed Deebo Samuel on injured reserve. The move will force the second-year wide receiver to miss at least three games under the NFL's new injured-reserve rules, meaning the earliest he would be available is for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles. Samuel has not practiced with the team since suffering a Jones fracture in June. Head coach Kyle Shanahan had hoped that the receiver would be available for the team's Week 1 matchup against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but the 49ers never cleared Samuel to practice this week. Shanahan was asked on Friday why San Francisco had not yet placed Samuel on injured reserve. "Because we believed he had a good chance to play this week," Shanahan

49ers Final 53-Man Predictions

By Matthew Barr

The San Francisco 49ers are going to cut their roster down to 53 players by Saturday afternoon. Originally back in April, I took a way too early look at what the roster could look like. Now less than 48 hours away from the deadline, I reexamine my picks and predictions. Quarterbacks (3): Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Mullens, C.J. Beathard In: C.J. Beathard Out: N/A COVID-19 made keeping a third QB absolutely necessary this season. Much to the chagrin of 49ers fans, Beathard survives another year on the roster and could possibly steal an important spot on an exceptionally talented team. Running backs (5): Raheem Mostert, Jerick McKinnon, Tevin Coleman, Jeff Wilson Jr., Kyle
