49ers’ Kyle Shanahan addresses Myles Garrett helmet swing during Steelers-Browns

Nov 15, 2019 at 8:48 AM--

By now, you've likely heard the news surrounding Myles Garrett's helmet swing from the Cleveland Brown's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday night. If you haven't, the defensive end is facing a suspension after pulling the helmet off of Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph and then using it to try to pummel his unprotected head.

Obviously, Rudolph's teammates came to his aide, and a brawl ensued.

NFL players and fans alike were taken aback by the whole situation. That includes San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, who feels Garrett should not be allowed to play again this season.

Others were left appalled by what they witnessed.

"What I did was foolish, and I shouldn't allow myself to slip like that," Garrett said after the game. "That's out of character, but a situation like that where it's an emotional game, and I allowed myself to fall into those emotions with what happened."

Update: The NFL announced on Friday morning that Garrett has been suspended indefinitely for the remainder of the season and postseason.

49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR on Friday morning and was asked about the whole Garrett fiasco and whether or not the situation would be discussed with his team.

"Every Friday, we have a couple of coaches who spend the week putting stuff together from what's happened around the league," Shanahan said on the "Murph and Mac" show. "So every Friday, I usually get about 15 clips just to show guys the do's and don'ts, and what happens and stuff. I'm sure we'll have that on there today to show them.

"I don't think the guys are going to take any notes and learn anything, like, 'Hey, don't use your helmet and hit anyone.' But that was crazy last night. I think our guys know that. I'm sure Myles Garrett knows that too.

"The main thing is you cannot lose your cool. It's a very physical game and stuff. To play in the physicality like that, guys go to some dark places, but you have to control that, and obviously, he didn't there, and it looked like he had no idea where he was.

"But that's going to cost their team. They've got a real easy schedule going forward. He's one of the best players in this league. That was one of the most complete unacceptable things that I've ever seen on tape."

Shanahan was told about Juszczyk's comments.

"Yeah, I think that bothered a lot of players," Shanahan responded. "I mean, this is a very dangerous game, and it's dangerous enough just playing in the rules. For someone to do that, that's completely unacceptable, and I think anybody who was watching that, player, fan, anybody, I'd be very surprised if they don't feel that exact same way."

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday, the day after the team's 24-20 season-opening loss to the Arizona Cardinals. He provided some injury updates during the Zoom call. Fans are probably eagerly awaiting an update on George Kittle, and Shanahan provided one. The All-Pro tight end suffered a knee sprain during the first half against the Cardinals. He left for the locker room just before halftime to be examined. Kittle returned with his teammates in the second half and played for the remainder of the game. "He has a knee sprain. We'll see how he comes in on Wednesday," Shanahan told reporters. "He was a little sore today, but we'll wait to see how he is on Wednesday to see if he's able to practice or be able to go

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,
