San Francisco 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan was trying to explain the importance of this week to the young prospects on his Senior Bowl squad on Tuesday when NFL Network cameras and audio caught a little more than they bargained for.

"Make sure you're on time, whether it's weigh-ins, whether it's meeting with us, whether it's an appointment you have with anyone here because those are the questions everyone wants to ask of you," Shanahan told the players on the South squad at the conclusion of Tuesday's practice. "You'll f--king do everything perfect here and then one f--king..."

That was when NFL Network quickly cut away.

Shanahan felt he needed to speak to the players because a couple of them were late to meetings earlier this week. He was asked on Thursday about that speech and if it resonated with the draft prospects.

"It did because it was neat that I haven't had to say anything again," Shanahan told reporters on Thursday after the final Senior Bowl practice of the week. "It's good that guys can figure that out because if guys were late this week and stuff, it's not like we can fine them. It's not like we're going to cut them. We're coaching an all-star game.

"So we're just trying to help them out and stuff. But to tell guys people are watching and you don't want to show that you're that type of person, and no one has done it since, (it shows) we've had a good group of guys."

Shanahan was asked if his wife was watching on television as he delivered the speech.

"No, she wasn't," Shanahan responded. "Thank goodness. It did get back to her."

What did she think of his language?

"She actually -- she likes that," Shanahan said while laughing. "She's got a bad mouth also."

Honesty like that has made the 49ers head coach very endearing to fans.

Bayless on 49ers: I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan or Brock Purdy

The San Francisco 49ers' collapse in Super Bowl 58 has fueled skepticism from one controversial media personality, indicating a lack of trust in two key figures of the franchise. Skip Bayless is among those doubting quarterback Brock Purdy's capabilities, which isn't new information. Additionally, he questions head coach Kyle Shanahan's effectiveness. Bayless says he was confident that the Kansas City Chiefs would beat the 49ers because of superior coaching by Andy Reid and exceptional talent in quarterback Patrick Mahomes. With Steve Spagnuolo leading the Chiefs' defense, Bayless believes the result was inevitable. "I'm sorry. More than ever, I don't believe in Kyle Shanahan, and I don't believe in Brock Purdy," Bayless said on his FOX Sports podcast. "And I

Cam Newton: 49ers' Super Bowl loss due to 'bad coaching'

By David Bonilla

While former NFL quarterback Cam Newton hasn't wavered in his opinions surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, who he said played "good enough" for the Bay Area team to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58, he is directing blame for the loss elsewhere. "Field goal versus touchdown, that's not Brock Purdy," Newton said on his "4th and 1" podcast. "Why the [expletive] did they receive the ball first? It was Tony Romo who mentioned this—when you know what you have to get, now you have four downs to get it, not three." Newton added, "The 49ers, they were just trying to get points. And that is not Brock Purdy's fault. That's bad coaching. There was too many people who was exposed. They didn't know the real rules of
