Kyle Shanahan to 49ers: “We’ve still got everything in front of us”

Dec 4, 2022 at 10:38 PM--


No one inside the San Francisco 49ers is throwing in the towel on the season after watching a second quarterback suffer a season-ending injury. First, it was Trey Lance in Week 2 with an ankle injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan reiterated after the game that Lance would not be back this season or for the playoffs.

On Sunday, Jimmy Garoppolo was lost for the season after suffering a broken foot.

Led by its stingy defense and rookie quarterback Brock Purdy on offense, San Francisco managed to emerge with an impressive win over the Miami Dolphins. However, they know nothing will be easy moving forward.

In the locker room after the game, teammates cheered Purdy's efforts in the 33-17 victory.

"We have such a special team, man," head coach Kyle Shanahan told his players. "It took everybody here throughout all four quarters. I don't know if you guys know, but it's with mixed emotions, right? We know Jimmy went down, so be there with him. You guys know how much he's meant to us, how much he's hurting right now.

"But guys, we've got a long way to go, and we've still got everything in front of us. When you guys play like that, defense, [offense], you play like that, you play that physical, you run the ball, everybody do their part, guys, we've got a chance to win every game that we step out there on. Never forget that."


Next up for Shanahan and his squad is a 5-6 Tom Brady-led Tampa Bay Buccaneers team trying to stay atop the NFC South. The two teams will face off next weekend at Levi's Stadium.

Baldinger explains why 49ers' Kyle Shanahan should have challenged the catch vs. Eagles

By David Bonilla

It wasn't a catch. We learned that soon after the Philadelphia Eagles quickly got back to the line of scrimmage and ran another play, after which the San Francisco 49ers could do nothing. In what looked like an amazing one-handed leaping grab by DeVonta Smith, replays showed that the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver failed to maintain possession. Many feel that, in the end, it would not have mattered. The Eagles ended up winning the NFC Championship Game 31-7. Maybe it would have mattered, though. Who knows what would have happened had officials overturned that play call? The drive would have ended because it was a 29-yard catch



49ers' Kyle Shanahan voices opinion on neutral-site conference championship games

By David Bonilla

Last week, Pro Football Talk reported that the NFL has at least looked into the possibility of holding conference championship games at neutral sites, much like what the league dues with the Super Bowl and what college football does with bowl games. "Within the league office, the interest in neutral-site title games has become very real," wrote Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. "The NFL envies the atmosphere of major college bowl games, where a 50/50 mix of fans are decked out in team colors. It's one thing about college football that pro football does not fully replicate." Many have been critical of the idea, including
