49ers' Kyle Shanahan shares George Kittle story while discussing player honesty regarding injuries

By David Bonilla

Kyle Shanahan has noticed many changes since transitioning from an offensive coordinator to the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. One that he maybe didn't expect to be so drastic is how honest his players are with him when it comes to injuries, even when he hopes for complete honesty. Shanahan is one of the team's top decision-makers. That means his players look to impress him with their toughness. In their minds, that means pushing through certain injuries to be available. Shanahan joined KNBR this week and was asked to estimate what percentage of his players are actually honest with him regarding the severity of their injuries. The answer was surprisingly low. As a head coach, Shanahan figures that only about five percent are completely honest. That number



49ers at Rams player grades: Jimmy Garoppolo shines in the clutch again

What an exhilarating game. I'm still amazed at what was probably the game of the year. The 49ers defeated the Los Angeles Rams 27-24 after forcing a 3-and-out with under two minutes to play, scoring a touchdown to force overtime, kicking a field goal to take the lead in OT, and Ambry Thomas intercepting Matthew Stafford to end the game. This was the story of two halves, as the 49ers seemed outmatched early in this game, with the Rams scoring 17 early points and the 49ers struggling to generate offense en route to just three 1st half points. But, Jimmy Garoppolo and Kyle Shanahan came out for the second half with a mission, scoring two touchdowns to tie the game at 17, the second coming with a creative Deebo Samuel touchdown pass to Jauan Jennings. In addition,

The NFL announced that San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould has been named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week following the team's 27-24 road victory over the Los Angeles Rams. In Week 18, Gould converted both of his field goals—from 42 and 24 yards—and all three point after attempts for a total of nine points in the overtime win at SoFi Stadium. He also punted twice with an average of 45 yards, including one downed inside the 20-yard line. Gould was forced to take over the punting duties after Mitch Wishnowsky left Sunday's game with a concussion. This is Gould's 10th-career Special Teams Player of the Week award. His previous honors are listed below. 2005 (with Chicago): Week 9 2006 (with



More than coach and player: 49ers' Kyle Shanahan considers Deebo Samuel a friend

By Rohan Chakravarthi

When thinking about Kyle Shanahan and Deebo Samuel, you normally refer to the creative methods that Kyle Shanahan utilizes his star receiver and the playmaking ability of Samuel to execute those play calls. However, there's much more to the relationship between the two than just the electrifying performances on Sundays, which Kyle Shanahan alluded to in his daily presser Wednesday. Deebo Samuel has always been an animated and vibrant individual, most notably through his energy on the field and leading up to games on Sundays, so it's no surprise that the head coach and receiver are able to easily connect on a daily basis. "[We talk about anything]," Shanahan stated. "Deebo's a real easy guy to talk to. He's not doing much on special teams during
