Rams’ Jared Goff responds to 49ers’ Kyle Shanahan calling him an ‘underrated quarterback’

Oct 10, 2019 at 11:57 AM--

Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle reported on Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff responding to San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan calling him one of the NFL's most underrated quarterbacks. I found it so entertaining that I had to go and watch Goff's entire press conference.

I'm not going to lie. I was hoping maybe Goff would have said something to tick off 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa or something. No such luck, though.

So what exactly did Goff say in response to what was probably meant as a compliment by the 49ers coach?

"Thanks, Kyle," Goff said of the assessment while smiling. "I don't care. Most of the people doing ratings aren't in the buildings, so they can do that. But thank you, Kyle. I appreciate it, and I think you're one of the more underrated coaches."

Fun. Thanks, Eric, for the find.

The 49ers (4-0) and Rams (3-2) face off in an NFC West showdown on Sunday at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. It is probably one of the most anticipated division matchups since ... well ... since Week 5's bout between the Rams and the Seattle Seahawks. Still, San Francisco being one of just two remaining undefeated teams left in the NFL adds something to this weekend's game.

Goff was also asked about the similarities between Shanahan's offense and his head coach's, Sean McVay. That's when the Rams quarterback sent some legitimate praise Shanahan's way.

"There's a lot of crossover," Goff said. "I haven't spent a lot of time watching their offense, but there is some crossover. And again, I think Kyle does a great job. I think he's done a great job over the last few years, and putting them in good situations even without Jimmy (Garoppolo) last year.

"I think he's a tremendous coach and does a great job. They do come from similar families of offenses, but there are a lot of different wrinkles that they do that we don't do and vice versa."

And for Bosa, I'm just going to leave this right here.

George Kittle responds to doubters, says 49ers are ready to 'whoop up on some people'

You've probably seen more than enough predictions leading up to the 2020 season. Some are predicting the Seattle Seahawks to win the NFC West over the San Francisco 49ers. Others are doubting whether or not the Niners will even make the playoffs this season. San Francisco has its share of doubters. It's not necessarily because anyone believes the 49ers aren't a good team. They are, after all, coming off a Super Bowl appearance and didn't experience a lot of the same turnover that many past Super Bowl teams have. It's just that the road back to the big game is

Film from the Field House: Five Plays Kyle Shanahan Will Call for the San Francisco 49ers in Week 1

A long time ago, I thought the most unprecedented event in the sports world was Game 3 of the 1989 World Series getting pushed back ten days due to an earthquake. Sports will find a way to endure - through earthquakes, war, a global pandemic and if professional football is played before a couch-bound audience. The San Francisco 49ers will play sloppy football Sunday, but the other NFL franchises will join them. Remember it's been nine months - if not longer - since players were on the field in a live football contest. Forty-Niner head coach Kyle Shanahan will have his men ready for Sunday afternoon, even if the game turns into a sludgy swamp of mental errors, blown coverages, and missed assignments. Indeed, the other 31 coaches in the league are

49ers' Kyle Shanahan refers to artificial crowd noise as 'human torture,' Raheem Mostert calls it 'different'

The final episode of this season's "Brick by Brick" may have been one of the more entertaining I can remember during the Hard Knocks-style online series' run. Most fans probably enjoyed listening to (likely very edited) defensive line coach Kris Kocurek mic'd up. However, watching head coach Kyle Shanahan try to endure the artificial crowd noise being pumped into Levi's Stadium as his team practiced was riveting. Fans will not be allowed to attend Week 1's matchup between the 49ers and Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. In lieu of real crowd noise, simulated noise will be pumped through the sound system. It may not necessarily be what fans hear on their televisions at home,
