49ers’ Kyle Shanahan praises Mike McGlinchey’s play in last two games

Dec 2, 2019 at 1:38 PM--


Right tackle Mike McGlinchey missed four games with a left knee injury before returning for the San Francisco 49ers' Week 10 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks. It could be argued that McGlinchey struggled a bit upon returning, but over the last two games, he has seemingly returned to form.

McGlinchey may even be playing his best football right now.

Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens, a 20-17 loss, earned McGlinchey his highest overall Pro Football Focus grade (88.9) and run-blocking grade (88.4) throughout his NFL career. That followed a Week 12 performance that earned him what was, at the time, his second-highest overall grade of the season (75.7).

"I thought Mike had his best game of the year versus Green Bay," Shanahan told reporters via a conference call on Monday. "And then I think he followed that up with his new best game of the year, yesterday.

"I know Mike has been battling through some injuries to get back. I know when he did get back, it still takes some time to get back to your old self, but I saw that last week, definitely, and I think he only got better this week."

The 49ers made McGlinchey the No. 9 overall draft pick last year after a college career at Notre Dame. He started all 16 games during his rookie season and has eight starts this year.

Ronnie Lott praises Kyle Shanahan, compares 49ers coach to Bill Walsh

It's an honor to be compared to one of the greatest football minds in NFL history — legendary San Francisco 49ers head coach Bill Walsh. It's an even greater honor for one of Walsh's former players to do so. Hall of Fame safety Ronnie Lott, who played eight seasons under Walsh, recently praised current 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan while comparing him to the late Bay Area icon. The hard-hitting safety was recently asked on SiriusXM NFL Radio about San Francisco's state as a Super Bowl contender. "To me, they're there," Lott responded via NFL.com. "They're there on the offense, and the reason I think that they're there on the offense is that, and I've

49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo, Mike McGlinchey, George Kittle explain why a Super Bowl hangover is 'not a possibility'

Several San Francisco 49ers players took part in this week's State of the Franchise event. One of the topics of conversation surrounded the possibility of a Super Bowl hangover. As tough as it is for a Super Bowl champion to claw its way back to the mountaintop, it is even tougher for the runner-up. All too often, that second-place team will regress the next season, but 49ers players don't see that happening with this squad. Why is that? What makes this 49ers team so different from past Super Bowl runner-ups? What makes its players think that they can get back and win it all, this time? "I think it's the guys in our building and the leadership that we have," responded offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey during the conversation with Keiana Martin and Greg Papa. "It's

Mike Florio 'blown away' by this comment from 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

The San Francisco 49ers have a not-so-simple goal for the 2020 season: Get back to the Super Bowl and emerge as champions. I label it as "not-so-simple" because doing so will be a very difficult task, and head coach Kyle Shanahan knows that. But it's Super Bowl or bust for the 49ers, as was the case in the team's heyday. Shanahan made a rather innocent comment this week during the conversation with Greg Papa after being asked to describe the state of the franchise. "I know we were good enough to win that Super Bowl, and we didn't," Shanahan responded. "And that's something we've got to live with. And that's why the state of the franchise, right
