In case you missed it, 49ers fans paid an airplane to fly a banner over Levi’s Stadium before Sunday’s loss to the New York Jets. On the banner was written, “Jed, You Reap What You Sow — Fire Baalke!”
The banner was a reference to a tweet former 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh wrote just after the team fired Jim Tomsula, the coach for which the team replaced Harbaugh. Harbaugh’s cryptic tweet read, “Do not be deceived. You will reap what you sow.”
As you may remember, the 49ers famously “parted ways” with the tremendously successful Harbaugh in order to promote Tomsula, a defensive line coach, and keep general manager Trent Baalke — as if those two were the stars of the operation. Since firing Harbaugh, the 49ers’ record is 6-23.
This “Fire Baalke” banner flew over Levi’s Stadium just hours after Jason La Canfora of CBS reported Trent Baalke likely will get fired at the end of the season. So, it seems 49ers fans will get their wish.
