    Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers are unlikely to have moved up to the number three overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft to select Trey Lance or Justin Fields if past behavior predicts future behavior, as social psychology research suggests. Shanahans have been wary of mobile quarterbacks Kyle Shanahan was the offensive coordinator when the Washington Redskins drafted Robert Griffin III with the second overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft and Kirk Cousins early in the fourth round of the same draft, leaving many scratching their head as to why the team would select a quarterback so soon after...

    Following a season of inconsistent and mostly poor quarterback play, Niners fans have developed some intense desire for free agent quarterbacks, which in turn caused a rift on 49ers Twitter between those who fear missing out on a quality free agent quarterback and those who aren't quite ready to discard Jimmy Garoppolo with reckless abandon. But after the dopamine surge that accompanies the novelty of a new quarterback wears off, the Los Angeles Rams will find themselves sobered by an uncertain future and the pressure to win a Super Bowl immediately. After trading their 2020 and 2021 first-round picks and a 2021 fourth-round pick for Jalen Ramsey in 2019, Los Angeles gave up another two first-round picks, a third, and Jared Goff for Matthew...

    A depleted San Francisco 49ers team was rendered mostly impotent for most of the game in Week 9, scoring only 3 points for most of their 17-34 loss to the Green Bay Packers, with Green Bay taking its foot off the gas in the 2nd half and Kyle Shanahan inexplicably using time outs to score 14 points in the last 5 minutes of an unwinnable game that went over the total with 4 seconds left.
