San Francisco 49ers fans are jolly as can be to kick off 2017, because two figures they loathe, Chip Kelly and GM Trent Baalke, were fired on Sunday.

Chip coached in San Francisco for just one season and compiled a record barely better than the Browns at 2-14. Of course, getting canned isn’t all bad for Chip because he signed a four-year deal with the 49ers, which means he gets another salary (alongside the Eagles) to do absolutely nothing! Dude is still winning and we all know a college gig is on the horizon for him.
As for Baalke, 49ers fans have wanted that guy canned for years. They finally get their wish but with a side of coal with reports leaking that he said no to drafting Dak Prescott. Win-lose there.
But that’s all in the past now, and 49ers fans can revel in a new start for the New Year. Oh, and maybe check out some memes at Chip and Trent’s expense.
