Big screw up on ATLs part. They Thought they'd be able to replace him and run his offense without him. Would have been favorites to go back to the Super Bowl if they still had him. And all to save a few million dollars.
If I was Arthur blank after seeing his franchise average 30 pts per game I would've gave him a significant raise now if he wanted to leave so be it. But they should've done whatever it took to keep him, but oh well I'm not complaining

Maybe that is why we had to give him a 6 year deal. To make it worth the risk of coming to work for Jed.
Kyle "By no means" Shanahan!
Watching the press conferences with Shanahan and Lynch they seem to compliment each other perfectly. Coach seems like a real serious dude.

Yeah, Shanny is really growing into the position.

Hell yea. Might not have worked (since its hard to beat getting the keys to the 49ers) but you still gotta keep that contention window open as long as you possibly can, keeping the band together .
I thought I saw Shanny head down beaming when Jimmy started talking about getting to work with the team in the coming year

Shanarappolo gonna wreck the NFL

Unlike Josh McDuck, Kyle is a man of his word. He said no to Arthur Blank.
Just wanted to mention something about Shanny that perhaps goes a bit unnoticed. When you have a GM and a persona like Lynch, who is a natural emcee and everyones hail fellow well met, it can be easy to not notice how eloquent and intelligent Kyle really is. I find myself learning something every time he talks football. And I also walk away feeling like he is in charge, and will always have the players respect. When you think back to the Baalke / Harbaugh pairing it is almost laughable from the public image viewpoint. Harbs could coach, but his pressers were hard to watch sometimes, and he ALWAYS looked like he would rather be getting a root canal than talking with the media. To see what these two guys have been able to do in just a year is more than any of us could have imagined. At least from my perspective.

I see the same in Kyle. He said he wants to be able to answer any and every question a player would have of him regarding football. Jed said he wanted a teacher as a HC, he finally got one in Kyle.

If you see how intelligent Kyle is regarding football than you almost know what type of players he wants. Instinct and intelligence. I don't see him like other rah rah coaches that seemed to manufacture emotions for locker unity . He seemed to be all about the work, the process and the method. Let that naturally be the glue for his players. If any player deviate and BS from that, he'll be off the team.

I think his players recognized his intensity and want to follow it.

He's an X's and O's Junkie and that's what I've always loved about him and why I've wanted him in our building in some capacity for at least 3-4 years. I just feel like we have a schematic advantage offensively with him. When the personnel finally meets the level of the offensive acumen, wins follow.

Kyle is one of my favorite coaches to hear talk that I can remember. I can see why everybody says he's so smart. He breaks the game down so well and everything makes so much sense when he says it.

He downplays his own ability to communicate when he's around Lynch but he's definitely really cool to listen to.

Love when he talked about how easy it is to get embarrassed in this league if you start feeling yourself too much. Thats gonna be really important with all they crazy hype we're about to get.

Ahh, yes. But according to one of the leaders of the Doom Squad, the ability to talk articulately and intelligently about the game doesn't mean anything because, after all, the team was in the middle of a nine game losing streak, so what difference did it make that we had a coach who understood the game and had a vision for where he was trying to take the team. Some people.

Agreed. When Shanalynch got hired I thought relevance would've taken much longer.
