Rumors are flying that there will majors changes in the 49ers organization due to the terrible team record and the fan out cry against Jed York and company. There is speculation that Kaepernick will be benched after the Rams game as he under performs. This is an easy fix and many teams have taken this approach, bringing in the back-up for two reasons, first to see if he can spark the team (rarely happens) and second to give the starter a kick in the ass. Bill Walsh employed this approach late in Joe Montana’s career with some success.
A more significant rumor is that Jim Tomsula will be fired if the Niners lose to the Rams and Falcons over the next two weeks. Tomsula is Jed’s hand picked coach. If Jed fires Tomsula it is an admission of his failure and essentially turning the football operations over to Trent Baalke. I have my doubts that Tomsula will get fired this early in the season as there is no credible person on the staff to take over. However i do think Tonsil will get the boot at the end of the season albeit he didn’t have much in the way of personnel this year to work wih.
Another rumor is that OC Geep Cryst will get demoted or fired by Tomsula after this Sunday due to overall poor offensive game plans an execution.
