Kyle Shanahan responds to Raheem Mostert’s criticism of 49ers

Nov 28, 2022 at 4:08 PM--


In a recent feature for Go Long, Miami Dolphins running back Raheem Mostert criticized his former team and upcoming opponent, the San Francisco 49ers, for how they handled his injury situation last year.

Mostert suffered a knee injury during Week 1, and the 49ers felt the running back would miss about eight weeks. However, Mostert opted to have season-ending surgery instead, a decision that writer Tyler Dunne states "absolutely pissed the 49ers off."

"It isn't right," Mostert told Dunne. "And it's up to the player to step up and say, 'This isn't right. I don't think this is the best of my interest.' Sometimes, you don't get that with players. But, for me, that was my case. I knew exactly what I wanted. I knew exactly how I'd handle the situation. I knew exactly—coming off of rehab—what I needed to do in order to get back on the field."

Mostert added, "I moved on from the situation. I have the opportunity to see them."

On Monday, head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked about Mostert's comments and if there is any truth to the criticisms.

"There was all different types of opinions during that from where we were at—Raheem, his agent, everybody," Shanahan told reporters on a conference call. "Just like there always is, there's first opinions, second opinions. So yeah, there's always different opinions on those things."

The 49ers and Dolphins, the two leaders in their respective divisions, will clash on Sunday afternoon at Levi's Stadium.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan explains bizarre clock management at the end of the first half vs. Cowboys

By Rohan Chakravarthi

San Francisco 49ers fans were irate at head coach Kyle Shanahan as the first half neared a conclusion during their NFC Divisional Round bout with the Dallas Cowboys. Why? Shanahan had elected to shave off a significant amount of game clock to begin San Francisco's drive, rather than choosing to be aggressive with his two-minute drill. As a result, the 49ers were only able to come away with a field goal, which provided them with a three-point lead heading into halftime. While Shanahan understands why his decision-making may have caused a reaction from his fans, the head coach doesn't regret his clock management at the end of the first half. "[I can understand the reaction that our fans had], not just because I can hear [the reaction, but]
