49ers’ Kyle Shanahan on viral Jimmy Garoppolo clip: “I’m pretty sure that’s not what he said”

Sep 29, 2022 at 1:21 PM--


Before each of his press conferences, someone from the San Francisco 49ers PR team will brief head coach Kyle Shanahan on anything viral from the week that may evoke questions from reporters. This week, the viral content came in the form of a video clip from Sunday night's telecast of the game between the 49ers and Denver Broncos. It featured a frustrated Jimmy Garoppolo storming off the field after a failed play.

The tweet suggests that Garoppolo might be saying, "All your plays suck, man." Of course, this is all speculation, but social media lip readers went with it, leading to the video trending.


Shanahan was asked about the video before Thursday's practice and what it is like dealing with frustrations coming from his quarterback.

"Like it is with one of my friends," Shanahan said. "Jimmy and I are around each other every single day, so there's not any awkwardness from us or anything that's kept from each other."

It's worth noting that while the coach was briefed on the video, he had not yet seen it. Nor does he plan to seek it out.

"I don't know the clip you're talking about," Shanahan continued. "I got it on my notes before this press conference, but I'm not a very good lip reader. I probably won't watch it."

Shanahan was pressed about the clip and if he understands that there might have been some frustration on Garoppolo's part.

"There's frustration with our whole team," Shanahan responded. "First of all, the clip, to me, is a joke. I can't believe we're talking about it. I'm pretty sure that's not what he said. But we were extremely frustrated from the whole game.

"Any time you are doing well in the first half moving the ball, and you get into the second half, and you have three turnovers on three of your drives, you have a safety on one, and you don't convert a third down, that's real frustrating to [not] get anything going."

Steve Young believes Kyle Shanahan's conservative play-calling is due to 49ers QB Jimmy Garoppolo

Is Kyle Shanahan's play-calling too conservative? Many watching Sunday night's game against the Los Angeles Chargers might say it is. The San Francisco 49ers offense scores an average of 22 points per game, ranking 18th in the NFL. Coincidentally, that's exactly how many points they scored in the win over the Chargers. Most would think the 49ers should score more on offense rather than stalling and settling for field goals. There is too much talent on the roster with playmakers like Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk, George Kittle, Kyle Juszczyk, Jauan Jennings, and recently-added running back Christian McCaffrey. On Monday, Shanahan was asked if he felt his offense wasn't clicking and if anything could be done to increase production in the second half of the season.

Jimmy Garoppolo is turning in one of the better seasons of his career. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback stepped in for an injured Trey Lance in Week 2 and has once again asserted himself as the leader on offense. Garoppolo has played well in the last two games. He hasn't thrown an interception in those matchups—a 31-14 win over the Los Angeles Rams and a 22-16 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. Tight end George Kittle has been one of Garoppolo's biggest supporters and had a theory as to why the quarterback has impressed over the last few weeks. "I

The head coach's San Francisco 49ers won their third consecutive game, with the latest being a 38-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in an international matchup in Mexico City. The 49ers are getting hot, and have become a favorite to make some noise down the stretch and in the NFC playoffs, assuming things continue to trend upward for the team. "I felt real good about the guys," Shanahan told reporters after the game. "[The players] had a great week of practice. They've really been gelling these last three weeks. I feel like it's gotten a little better each week, and it was nice to put a full game together today." Players are also feeling the momentum build up. "We're definately ready to
