It seemed there was a slight disconnect between Lance and head coach Kyle Shanahan early on.

He had some struggles at first, but Thomas eventually came into his own and has been a significant contributor on defense ever

However, head coach Kyle Shanahan felt confident with putting Garoppolo out there Sunday in a must-win matchup to make the playoffs. The uncertainty of that decision left many fans on edge leading up to and during the game at SoFi Stadium. When the 49ers fell behind by 17 points in the first half of the game, it appeared that head coach Kyle Shanahan's decision was going to be the nail in the coffin for their season, as
