Several 49ers players call Kyle Shanahan to let him know they are alive

May 2, 2021 at 5:47 PM--


According to Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, several San Francisco 49ers called head coach Kyle Shanahan today to let him know they are alive.


Of course, this stems from comments Shanahan made last week when asked by Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle if the coach could guarantee that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would be on the roster come Sunday. He was referring to the situation surrounding the 49ers, at the time, potentially drafting a quarterback with the No. 3 overall pick.

"I can't guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive Sunday, so I can't guarantee who will be on our roster on Sunday. So, that goes for all of us," Shanahan responded.

The coach later explained what he meant by the comment, feeling that it had taken on a life of its own.

"I hated how that came off," Shanahan shared on Thursday after the 49ers drafted quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State. "I talked to Jimmy about it right away. I didn't realize that when I did it. A person I have a relationship with who sometimes when he asks me what I think is a silly question, sometimes I mess with him back and that's kind of what I was doing.

"That was between me and that guy, had nothing to do with Jimmy when I said, 'I didn't know if we'd be alive on Sunday.' I was just trying not to get my typical answer of, 'Guys, anybody can be traded if you get a bunch of ones, John should trade me and I shouldn't be here on Sunday.'"

Maybe the San Francisco 49ers should look into having head coach Kyle Shanahan fire up the crowds at Levi's Stadium before each home game this season because he did a good job serving as the Grand Marshal of today's Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Cup Series race. He was tasked with the tradition of starting the race by telling the drivers to start their engines. "I'm not going to lie. I am nervous for it," Shanahan told the television announcing team before the race. "I didn't totally know what I was getting into until I saw video of it a little bit ago." Shanahan was told that he needs to be aggressive. "Alright, I'm going to come strong," he responded. He certainly did that. "Hello, Faithful," Shanahan told the crowd. "Hey,
