49ers coaching approval poll: Geep Chryst, offensive coordinator

New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers wrap up the 2015 season on Sunday, with pride and draft position on the line against the St. Louis Rams. At some point after the finale, CEO Jed York is expected to meet with Bay Area media to discuss the season that was. Expectations are that Jim Tomsula will get a second chance in 2016, but we won't know for certain until next week.

If Tomsula does get a reprieve, there has been speculation that other members of the coaching staff could be on the chopping block. I wanted to get some approval polls together before the season ends, because we don't know how quickly firings will leak out. Earlier this week, we had a vote on defensive coordinator Eric Mangini.

Today, we're back with offensive coordinator Geep Chryst. The 49ers offense was a train wreck for extended periods this season. There were moments that seemed to indicate a sign of something, but the offense is going to finish the season dead last in scoring. They currently have 219 points, 33 back of the Dallas Cowboys for 31st place. The 49ers are mathematically alive to outscore the Cowboys by 33 points in Week 17, but I don't think anybody expects that to actually happen. The most points they scored this season was 27 against the New York Giants. They have failed to exceed 20 points in 11 of their 16 games.

There are plenty of excuses to be made. The offensive line lost Mike Iupati and Anthony Davis, and Daniel Kilgore was slow returning. Carlos Hyde dealt with foot issues. On the other hand, play-calling seemed questionable for extended stretches, and players did not sufficiently develop. Some of that blame goes to Trent Baalke and football operations, but I can't imagine all of it belongs on them.

So what do you say? On a scale of 1-to-10, what do you make of the job performance of 49ers offense coordinator Geep Chryst?
