Fans of the San Francisco 49ers let their frustrations be known on Sunday ahead of the team’s game with the New York Jets. A banner was flown over Levi’s Stadium with a clear dig at team owner Jed York, imploring him to fire general manager Trent Baalke.

“You reap what you sow” is a not so subtle reference to a past tweet from former 49ers and current University of Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh.
Harbaugh battled with York and Baalke at the end of his tenure in San Francisco. He famously jabbed his old team in an apparent response to Jim Tomsula’s firing after only one year (more on that here).
The 49ers entered Week 14 at 1-11 under Tomsula’s replacement, Chip Kelly, and are riding an 11-game losing streak after winning in Week 1.
