Jerry Rice loved seeing the outburst from Kyle Shanahan during 49ers vs. Seahawks

Dec 3, 2018 at 9:55 AM--

Television cameras caught a glimpse of a frustrated Kyle Shanahan having a passionate discussion with an official during the third quarter of Sunday's 43-16 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, the team's 10th loss of the season. The "conversation" earned the San Francisco 49ers head coach a 15-yard penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct.

You can view the exchange below, courtesy of Melissa Jacobs. It's not hard to figure out what Shanahan says at the end.

While Shanahan was understandably frustrated with some horrific officiating during the game, he regretted the on-field outburst.

"There was a number of things that added up, that were building up and I made a dumb mistake and said something I shouldn't of," Shanahan told reporters after the game "It won't happen again."

One Niner great loved seeing a fired-up Shanahan on the sidelines. Hall of Fame receiver Jerry Rice joined 95.7 The Game on Monday morning and explained why he has no problem with the coach putting on an emotional display like the one on Sunday.

"Yesterday, for the first time, I really saw some emotion from Kyle Shanahan," Rice said on the "Joe, Lo & Dibs" show. "It was a play that he totally disagreed with, and he was upset. That's what I want to see on the football field. That's what I want to see at the facility, in the classroom, all of that, because the players are going to follow him. And if he's emotionally into the game and he wants to win like that, they're going to do the same thing."

Kyle Shanahan explains the absence of Trey Lance during 49ers-Eagles

After playing four snaps in the San Francisco 49ers' Week 1 victory over the Detroit Lions, many expected rookie quarterback Trey Lance's role to increase in Week 2. Instead, Lance remained on the sideline for the entirety of the game against the Philadelphia Eagles. The lack of playing time made headlines, but head coach Kyle Shanahan has said the rookie's role would be dependant on the game plan. It doesn't seem like Shanahan wants to play Lance just to play him. That, of course, has led some to wonder if the 49ers are properly handling the development of the rookie. Shanahan insists he doesn't enter games with a set number of plays that feature Jimmy Garoppolo's athletic backup. "No, I never have a plan that, 'Hey, I'm going to use him, or I'm not

Kyle Shanahan is tough on his wide receivers. That's a little tidbit that San Francisco 49ers wideout Deebo Samuel revealed on Wednesday night during his interview on 95.7 The Game's Damon, Ratto & Kolsky show. In fact, as a rookie in 2019, the receiver was downright frightened of his then-new head coach. Samuel was asked if he's ever been on Shanahan's bad side. "I wouldn't say bad side, but as a rookie, though, I was kind of terrified of Kyle," Samuel admitted. "As a rookie, trying to learn this offense, and he expects you to be top-tier, and you're not

The San Francisco 49ers were holding onto a commanding 41-17 lead against the Detroit Lions when starting cornerback Jason Verrett went down with an injury. The veteran was grasping at his right knee. Verrett was able to walk off the field on his own. However, he stopped short of the sideline before grabbing at the knee again and being assisted by the team's training staff. Verrett left for the locker room after the game resumed but had trouble getting there on his own. He appeared to be tearing up before two trainers came to his assistance to help him get to the locker room. He eventually had to be taken the remainder of the way on a cart and general manager John Lynch was seen with the cornerback, per multiple reports. Verrett has been plagued with

Trey Lance took four snaps on Sunday against the Detroit Lions. One of those snaps featured the rookie quarterback's only pass and his first touchdown pass — a five-yard strike to wide receiver Trent Sherfield. Lance had replaced starter Jimmy Garoppolo on the drive. Maybe Garoppolo would have added that touchdown to his stats had he remained in the game. What was the veteran's reaction to seeing his eventual successor throw his first NFL touchdown? Garoppolo was among the first to celebrate with Lance on the sideline after the play. During the broadcast, Mark Sanchez, one of the FOX announcers calling the game, commented on the potential awkwardness of celebrating your young successor's accomplishment. "That's not an easy hug to give," Sanchez
