'Fire Baalke' banner flying over Levi's Stadium

The San Francisco 49ers haven't won a game since Week 1 and are 6-22 since Jim Harbaugh was cast out in an ugly internal power struggle.

General manager Trent Baalke may have won that battle, but he's losing the war. The 49ers are a mess and have run out of patience. If Baalke needs a reminder on Sunday at Levi's Stadium, all he has to do is look up.

The message, for the hard of sight: "Jed, you reap what you sow -- Fire Baalke."

Ironically, the banner soars above Santa Clara on the same day the New York Jets are in town for a wildly meaningless mid-December tilt. It was just two years ago that an organized group of Gang Green fans flew banners and paid for billboards imploring ownership to fire overmatched GM John Idzik.

Idzik got the ax following the season. Baalke hopes history isn't about to repeat itself.
