In a comment that will not surprise anybody, San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York told local media he is not going to comment on the 49ers season until it concludes in two weeks. He said this previously to local media, so this is not breaking news. But at least people are at least asking him for some kind of comment when they see him in a public venue.
The 49ers have now lost two straight, and four of five to drop to 4-10 on the season. They are not going to the playoffs, and will finish with their worst record since either 2010, 2007, or 2005 (depending on 4, 5 or 6 wins). The team fell apart against the Cleveland Browns, and did not show much more against the Bengals. They got some things going in the fourth quarter, but too many mistakes doomed them.
At this point, it seems unlikely anybody will be fired before the team's Week 17 game. Geep Chryst is the most logical candidate for an in-season termination or demotion. I don't expect him to be fired, but he could very well get demoted. As Tim Kawakami pointed out, it is possible he gets demoted, but nothing is actually announced.
The 49ers dealt with plenty of roster turnover, and I imagine Jed York's potential end-of-season media session will include some references to that. However, the coaching staff remains a train wreck in a lot of ways. Eric Mangini seems the most competent of the bunch, and I imagine most of us are fans of Tom Rathman. We don't know a lot about a lot of the other coaches, but this team is not showing nearly enough consistency. There are too many problems, and nothing seems to be changing on a consistent basis. If the 49ers go into the 2016 season with most or all of the current coaching staff, there will be serious problems.
But for now, we wait for comments from Jed York. Any idea what the 49ers CEO might actually say?
