Kyle Shanahan really, really doesn’t want the 49ers to be on Hard Knocks

Dec 31, 2018 at 11:17 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers are among a handful of teams which cannot turn down being on Hard Knocks, the documentary-style sports series produced by HBO. If San Francisco is selected to be featured on the show, don't expect the team to be very entertaining for the cameras.

The 49ers have been very clear since last year that they do not want to be on Hard Knocks. In case the NFL decision-makers were watching, head coach Kyle Shanahan made it even more apparent on Monday just how much he doesn't want to be on the series.

Shanahan was asked about his current stance on the issue.

"It's a hard, hard, bad stance on Hard Knocks. You would see the worst entertainment possible by me," he promised.

Hard Knocks debuted in 2001. The show, which follows NFL teams during training camp and preseason, featured the Cleveland Browns earlier this year.

The tight end responded as he always does, expressing great confidence in his quarterback and friend. "Honestly, I've never had to talk about someone so much in my life," Kittle

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch spoke with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic this week and was once again asked about the team's quarterback situation. Now, this was all before the buzz surrounding Deshaun Watson's disappointment in the Houston Texans and the potential trade talk that ensued. Hence, the focus was on the possibility that the 49ers might look to the first round of the draft to bolster the quarterback position. Kawakami, as part of the interview on his podcast, The TK Show, asked Lynch if the 49ers might consider using their top pick on one of the highly-touted incoming rookie signal-callers. "We certainly could," Lynch responded while
