We can now see there is trouble within the ranks of the San Francisco 49ers brain-trust. It is time for Jed York to step in and control the situation before he loses his grasp of one of the great coaches, in the modern day NFL.It should be easy to choose Jim Harbaugh over the team’s GM.
Who is down on the field week after week? Jim Harbaugh. Who develops the players and takes them to the play-offs? Jim Harbaugh. Who is in the locker room at halftime trying to rally the troops? Jim Harbaugh. The 49ers have got to find a way to settle this down and they have to keep Jim Harbaugh happy.
Getting rid of Trent Baalke would solve the problems in San Francisco. Harbaugh has a job to do and with the team he coached over the last few years, he could very well end back in the play-offs again in 2014.
Harbaugh is worth keeping as the team’s head coach and he is far more valuable than the GM. This shouldn’t be a tough decision for York. He needs to step up and be the man his parents expect him to be. Back in the day of Ed Debartolo, this situation would have already been handled.
How this could get this far out of control, is anyone’s guess. Now they need to fix it, and the fix is to rid the 49ers of Baalke……
