‘That was our house’: Watch Kyle Shanahan’s post-game speech after 49ers beat Washington

Oct 21, 2019 at 12:10 PM--


Kyle Shanahan may have downplayed the satisfaction of beating an organization that fired both him and his father, Mike Shanahan, back in 2013, but that didn't stop the San Francisco 49ers head coach from giving the game ball to his father after the 9-0 victory on Sunday.

"It was a game that we wanted to win for both him and Mike Shanahan," tight end George Kittle said after the game, "and it was really fun that we could get that for him."

While Kyle Shanahan was focused on getting his team to 6-0 at rain-soaked FedExField, he did comment a bit after the game on what it meant to leave with a victory.

"Everyone's always a little more sensitive towards things that involve your family," Shanahan said. "That's why I'm always a little more sensitive to this because of what I went through with my dad here. And that's why it was nice to get the win.

"But it definitely had nothing to do with the game. It had nothing to do with the score. But you always want to take care of things the right way when you've been bothered about how some things have been for a family member."

The 49ers posted the following video of Shanahan's post-game speech, which does not include the game ball presentation. That's because the elder Shanahan wasn't actually at the game. Kyle Shanahan sent his father a text message informing him that he earned the game ball.

The video does, however, show the head coach speaking to his victorious players after the game.

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is very committed to his stance on San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan's parting words from an interview for this past week's State of the Francisco event. "I know we were good enough to win that Super Bowl, and we didn't," Shanahan said. "And that's something we've got to live with. And that's why the state of the franchise, right now, is we've got to get right back to that moment. We've got to get right back to that fourth quarter, and get to have a lead, and we've got to finish the job." It's that last part that irked Florio and was the focus of two video discussions, one with Chris Simms, and the

Kyle Shanahan spoke with the voice of the San Francisco 49ers, Greg Papa, during the team's virtual State of the Franchise event this week. The head coach was asked what he sees from his quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, who isn't worried about recovering from an ACL injury this offseason. "I think Jimmy had an unbelievable year last year," Shanahan said. "When you look at him statistically, just percentages and stuff of what he did, he's extremely accurate, kept us in some very good situations, and won a few games for us, too. He had a number of games where he had to come out huge on some 3rd-and-longs, some last-minute drives, and make some big plays that won us some games." Shanahan noted Garoppolo's improvement from last offseason, to the start of the regular
