49ers-Patriots: Kyle Shanahan reacts to Bill Belichick’s ‘daunting’ record vs. his former QBs

Oct 23, 2020 at 11:47 AM--


Kyle Shanahan joined KNBR on Friday morning, and Murph & Mac host Brian Murphy threw out this interesting statistic:

New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is 7-1 against quarterbacks he drafted or have started for him.

Belichick hopes to make it 8-1 this weekend when the Patriots host Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers. What does Shanahan think about Belichick's record against his former quarterbacks?

"I hear you, but Bill's going to make sure he covers everybody and makes it hard for Jimmy," Shanahan said. "When people aren't open, that's hard for any quarterback. If people aren't open, and you can't have a run game, then I don't care what your quarterback's going to do, unless he just runs around and basically makes plays scrambling, which is extremely hard.

"So, that stat definitely is a little daunting, but when you're one of the best coaches of all time, and when you are the best coach of all time, and you have the best quarterback of all time in your second year as a head coach, give me any stat, whether it's at home, on the road, whether it's the AFC East, and I bet you that winning percentage is close to what you just gave me."

Murphy did correct Shanahan on one thing — the coach's statement that Belichick had the best quarterback of all time. The KNBR host noted that Joe Montana never played for Belichick.

"That's true," Shanahan responded. "You're right. Thank you for getting me on that. Arguably the best. The best in terms of what I've studied. That's what I'll say."

49ers-Saints: Kyle Shanahan says RB JaMycal Hasty broke his collarbone, provides other injury updates

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers running back JaMycal Hasty went down with an injury in the fourth quarter of today's loss to the New Orleans Saints. He later left for the locker room to be examined. The injury left the 49ers with Jerick McKinnon and Austin Walter as the only available running backs. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after the game and said that Hasty suffered a broken collarbone. That means he'll probably miss a significant amount of time and will likely become yet another 49ers player to land on injured reserve. Shanahan is hoping to get running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Tevin Coleman (knee) back after the bye week. "I'm hoping they are," Shanahan said of their chances to return in time for the 49ers' Week 12

49ers' Kyle Shanahan is Shrinking in the Spotlight

By Gilbert Brink

Enough Excuses. On Sunday, the 49ers suffered their 3rd straight blowout loss, dropping them to 4-6 and continuing their free-fall to irrelevancy. It was a game they could have won, the opportunities were there, but the 49ers just couldn't muster up more than 13 points of offense. Now, more than ever, the 49ers' 2020 season seems to be completely lost. While many look for a direction to point the finger, and there are a few obvious areas, start with the head coach. Sure, there have been a plethora of injuries, but one side of the ball has been handling those injuries much better than the other. Robert Saleh's defensive unit has been depleted by the injury bug, losing Dee Ford, Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman, Solomon Thomas, K'waun Williams, Jaquiski Tartt and other significant

Kyle Shanahan explains failed fourth down conversion call in 49ers loss to Saints

Had a few key plays gone differently in their 27-13 Week 10 loss to the New Orleans Saints, perhaps the San Francisco 49ers might be traveling back to the Bay Area with an upset win in their pocket and a much different vibe heading into their bye week. But, unfortunately, the 49ers had too many plays go in the wrong direction against the Saints that altogether eventually wound up costing them the game. One such play was a failed fourth-down conversion late in the second quarter that saw running back Jerick McKinnon stuffed for a two-yard loss. The play came on a fourth-and-one at the Saints' 41-yard line and followed an incomplete pass attempt from Nick Mullens to Brandon Aiyuk on the play before. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan explained his thought
