Watch Mike Shanahan hand the George Halas Trophy to his son, 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

Jan 19, 2020 at 7:24 PM--


It was a special moment during the presentation of the George Halas Trophy to the San Francisco 49ers, who are headed to Super Bowl LIV after beating the Green Bay Packers 37-20 in the NFC Championship Game.

Former NFL head coach and two-time Super Bowl champion, Mike Shanahan, presented the George Halas Trophy to 49ers CEO Jed York, who insisted he hand it to his son, Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan, first.

"You give it to him," York said.


Shanahan was asked about that moment after the game.

"I think that's pretty special," the coach said. "Just to get a trophy handed to you by anyone is just really cool, especially Jed making my dad an honorary captain. ... Jed planned all that and did that. It was pretty cool. I didn't know what was going on but it was pretty cool that it happened there at the end. It was pretty special."

Shanahan and his squad are headed to Miami to play the Kansas City Chiefs in the team's first Super Bowl appearance since the 2012 season for a chance to win the organization's sixth championship.

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

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

Trent Williams athletic enough to play 3-technique, says 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan

There is no doubt that Trent Williams is among the most athletic offensive linemen in the NFL. The tackle joined the San Francisco 49ers via a trade in April and will replace another athletic offensive lineman in recently retired Joe Staley. It's not often that a team can lose a player like Staley and gain one like Williams. The 49ers offensive line shouldn't miss a beat during the transition, and some might argue that it may have improved with the switch. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was in Washington when the team drafted Williams and is excited to bring him to the Bay Area. Shanahan knows a good NFL tackle when he sees one. "I've been so fortunate, just in the places I've been, to be with some of the best tackles in the league," Shanahan told Greg
