i wouldnt be that mad. he did take a QB that everybody said cant play at a high level and should be a WR, and turn him into an all pro. but what Kyle has done with this team, the turnaround to be exact, its amazing.
4-12 to 13-3 in one year. Wow. Way beyond **MY** expectations for sure.

cc said 8 wins at best

^^ This. Including those (of us) who did not overreact to 2018, either. Nobody likes to lose, but even in losing during the 2017 and 2018 seasons the makings of future success were visible, and we weren't losing in the same "no conceivable hope" way that we did under Erickson, Nolan, Singletary, Tomsula, and Kelly. Patience was mandatory. Myopia needed to be checked at the door. Walking in off the street in 2017 Shanahan is the best offensive minded coach we've had since his father left for Denver in 1995, and the best offensive minded head coach since Walsh. Given the mediocre to trash coaching we had before him that alone earned Shanahan patience from me for the duration of his contract (with the obvious expectation that after three years there should be improvement). Given the s**t show he was left with in 2017 none of us could have foreseen things coming together so quickly. With a lot of luck along the way it has. We got lucky to get Shanahan, we got lucky to get Garoppolo, we got lucky to get Bosa, we've had a lot of good luck as 49ers fans over the past three years.

True. In my book a Lombardi trophy is more validation that he would be the COTY than an actual COTY trophy is.

right, Mike Vrabel did a hell of a job too, with 2 monster upsets for a team that snuck in the playoffs.

Yes, a career Special Teams coach, who has never had anything to do with offense, came up with that offense to make Lamar a star.

So tired of hearing this lame argument. It's as bad as people trying to give LaFleur all of the credit for the Packers turnaround when it was mostly because of the defensive improvement.

it was like obama inheriting the economic recession that was 2008 pretty much.
It's time for Shanahan to delve and unleash the true plays and innovative stuff from his playbook.

the best plays he has in his playbook, now's the time to lay all the cards down on the table and not hold back with his genius and creativity.

KC Defense has given up only 11.5 ppg in the last 6 regular season games.

No matter who you play, that is impressive. Watch this game be a 14-17 low scoring type of game.

NE defense allowed 40 total points through their first 8 games vs bad teams and then gave up 30 to the Ravens in week 9. Opponents matter.

You also should probably take into account they are allowing 25+ per game in the playoffs.

I had 9 and a possible wild card...no way I saw this coming until at least next year.

Honestly, there's been kinda of a war of sorts that's gone on here before even Shanahan arrived. But specifically when he arrived, there were those of us who were with him and supported his decisions, even the bad ones (me for example with Solomon Thomas and Joe Williams) and those who speak as if they legitimately thought Brian Hoyer was the QBOTF.

I had 10 wins, but wanted to go higher. I felt they had it in them, but I was gut punched by all the injuries, and was a little gun-shy.

That was more Greg Roman though. Its not like Harbaugh has some sort of extensive offensive background. It was Roman that went and retooled his offense to best fit LJ's abilities.

Indeed. Looking at what he did in Baltimore and what Roman did here, it's like the original WCO with the Cincinnati Bengals (2012-2013 49ers with Roman/Kap) verses the 1980s WCO 49ers (2019 Ravens).
