Mike McGlinchey was not allowed to speak to Joe Staley on Tuesday

Jul 31, 2018 at 2:28 PM--


Joe Staley is entering his 12th NFL season. The veteran left tackle has been an excellent resource for rookie right tackle Mike McGlinchey. The two have formed a (very) close friendship, and Staley calls the first-round pick his little brother.

McGlinchey told reporters on Saturday that he probably asks Staley between 20 and 30 football-related questions a day.

"I probably get on his nerves," he said.

That may be true.

Staley and McGlinchey joined Steve Smith Sr. on NFL Network after practice on Tuesday. Smith was directing the questions from McGlinchey to Staley and explained the reasoning behind the curious on-air interaction between the two.

"The reason I'm having Mike talk to Joe is because his rookie deal today is not to speak to Joe," Smith shared. "So I'm making him speak to Joe."

McGlinchey said on Saturday that he never leaves Staley alone and until Staley tells him to shut up, McGlinchey is going to keep asking questions. So at their next meeting, Staley told him to shut up.

"There've been about 30 seconds this whole entire camp where I've had probably 30 seconds to myself without him in my ear asking me questions," Staley told Smith. "He actually was in front of the media [on Saturday] and was like, 'Aw man, I'm just asking Joe so many questions. Until he tells me to shut up, I'm just going to keep asking them.'"

Hopefully, Staley enjoyed the little break. McGlinchey will probably be back at it with questions on Wednesday. He better watch out though because Staley was asking Smith for more rookie hazing ideas. McGlinchey may end up singing in front of the team in a penguin costume.

Never retire, Joe.

The Miami Dolphins requested to interview San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel for their head coaching vacancy. Obviously, that's a big opportunity for the 38-year-old coach in his first season as an offensive coordinator. However, the valuable knowledge he has learned from head coach Kyle Shanahan could soon make him a hot commodity. McDaniel doesn't have time to think about any of that right now, though. Instead, he's focused on Sunday's road playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. After Thursday's practice, the coordinator was asked about juggling preparing for the game and thinking about the head coaching opportunity, and his response should set 49ers fans' minds at ease. "Yeah, it has [come to my attention], but as far as juggling, there
