Fans have lost their patience.
For four years, the 49ers Faithful made every excuse imaginable for Kyle Shanahan's three losing seasons. But now that he's 2-3 in Year 5, the Faithful are losing faith.
I did a podcast Tuesday morning on the state of the franchise. At the end, I took comments from the audience. Here's what the faithful said:
"Boo birds are gonna be out in full force on SNF. Will be humiliating for Kyle and Jimmy when Cris Collinsworth makes a big deal of it." -- Tony Nagatani.
"No play action? He's collecting a pay check." -- Watchu Talkn Bout Willis
"Maybe he is just having a bad stretch of games just like players do sometimes. I don't think this is dire, but I also don't think he has been good at all. Also, free Brandon Aiyuk." -- Just_A-Dude_Man
"Shanahan has no one to blame but his damn self." -- Ollie Ware
"It has been proven that Shanahan cannot handle the head coach responsibilities and now is an average offensive coordinator. Jed needs the backbone like Uncle Eddie. Trade away!" -- Eli Dearnaley
"Trade Shanahan to Jacksonville. Feed him to Trent Baalke." -- Gold Blooded
"We need the Bills offensive coordinator (Brian Daboll)." -- Ollie Ware
"If you clean house, get the Bills assistant general manager or head of scouting. Bills are good AND have been very healthy." -- Keldin
"Kyle can look in the mirror and blame himself. You don't keep your running backs on the bench and only use them 10 times in a rookie's first game. Just absolute coaching failure." -- Nitin Kumar
"Kyle is mad they outed him about (not wanting Tom) Brady." -- David Sanchez.
"Kyle got Lance hurt, period. Sick of Kyle." -- Mario Gonzalez.
"Trade Kittle for a first, trade Kyle for a first and let DeMeco Ryans inspire this team." -- Tanner Chavez.
"We need a leader of men, not just a good play caller." -- Donald Johnson.
"Shanahan doesn't like dual threat QBs. They drafted Kirk Cousins in the same draft as RGIII. What a confidence booster for RGIII." -- 1121_Music.
"Where else can you go and have 1 winning season out of 5 and it's acceptable? I guess the 49ers. Stop it, fans. Trade him." -- Tee Breezy.
"Kyle always dialed it up for Mullens and Beathard and this is the best he could do for Lance? Sad." -- Michael Young.
"Lance is 'hurt.' Just an excuse to go back to Jimmy. Can't believe Kyle about anything." -- Justin Lomker.
