49ers’ Kyle Shanahan among coaches who appeal face mask fine

Sep 27, 2020 at 8:55 AM--


Expect San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan to do a better job of wearing his face mask today while on the sidelines against the New York Giants. He was among five coaches who were fined $100,000 this past week for not properly wearing a face-covering during Week 2. The NFL also fined each coach's team $250,000. That brings the total amount of fines between the coaches and five teams to $1.75 million.

The other coaches were Vic Fangio of the Denver Broncos, Jon Gruden of the Las Vegas Raiders, Sean Payton of the New Orleans Saints, and Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks.

Shanahan on Wednesday was asked about the hefty fine.

"I'm obviously disappointed," Shanahan responded. "I mean, no one ever wants to have to spend that kind of money. But the biggest disappointment was I think our organization has taken this stuff very seriously. I think our organization has been unbelievable with the protocols that we've done, and the ones that have been given to us, and what we've followed."

Shanahan, along with the other four coaches, has appealed the fine, according to NFL insider Ian Rapoport. Their appeals will be heard this week.

"Obviously, I can do a better job during the game of wearing it," Shanahan continued. "I got the message, and I will do a better job. But I don't want to take away from the fact that of how good our organization has done with this stuff in the buildings, with all the players, how we've traveled, the money we've put into it to make it safe.

"But yeah, I got the message, and I will do better."

Kyle Shanahan, 49ers Must Find a New Identity

By Gilbert Brink
Oct 7, 2020

The 49ers can still win Super Bowl 55. Many teams can. There has been a handful of teams throughout history that have started off slow and still won the Super Bowl. Sitting at 2-2, the Super Bowl seems like a pipe dream for the 49ers. This is a good thing; perhaps the 49ers were a little too focused on their "revenge tour" and less focused on winning the battle immediately in front of them. After suffering some major injuries early in the season, the 49ers look nothing like the team that took the stage for Super Bowl 54 in early February 2020. That team was driven by a dynamic running game and a fierce defense that got after the quarterback with its front 4. This team is struggling to run the ball, and is playing without defensive linemen Dee Ford, DeForest Buckner, Solomon

Kerry Hyder has been a pleasant surprise on a San Francisco 49ers defensive line that has been decimated by injuries this season. In the absence of edge rushers Nick Bosa and Dee Ford, Hyder has racked up 20 tackles, 3.5 sacks, and 10 quarterback hits, according to Pro Football Reference. Hyder's overall Pro Football Focus grade of 70.8 is a career-high, and the analytics site credits the defender with 21 total pressures in 134 pass-rush attempts. He owns a pass-rushing-productivity grade of 9.9, which ranks as the fourth-best among NFL edge rushers. The only edge defenders who have made more of an impact rushing quarterbacks are Aldon Smith of the Dallas Cowboys (10.7 grade), T.J. Watt of the Pittsburgh Steelers (10.4), and Myles Garrett of the Cleveland Browns (10.1),
