In his first news conference since becoming the 49ers presumptive next head coach, Falcons offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan sounded, well, like a head coach. The NFL Network has reported Falcons coach Dan Quinn told his assistants this week that Shanahan would be the 49ers next head coach and the coaches broke into applause. [...] by league rules, the 49ers can't hire Shanahan until the Falcons' season ends, and Atlanta will meet Green Bay on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game. On Thursday, Packers director of football operations Eliot Wolf withdrew his name from consideration for the opening after he received a new deal from Green Bay. Wolf, 34, the son of Hall of Fame executive Ron Wolf, is viewed a possible heir apparent to Packers general manager Ted Thompson, 64. Packers director of player personnel Brian Gutekunst and Vikings assistant general manager George Paton. Cardinals vice president of player personnel Terry McDonough also remains a possibility.

This is a good thing; perhaps the 49ers were a little too focused on their "revenge tour" and less focused on winning the battle immediately in front of them. After suffering some major injuries early in the season, the 49ers look nothing like the team that took the stage for Super Bowl 54 in early February 2020. That team was driven by a dynamic running game and a fierce defense that got after the quarterback with its front 4. This team is struggling to run the ball, and is playing without defensive linemen Dee Ford, DeForest Buckner, Solomon

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is working his way back from an ankle injury. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, he will practice with his teammates this afternoon but be limited. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean that Garoppolo will play on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins. "The fact that he's coming out today and getting a little more reps, it has (made me more optimistic)," Shanahan said. "I haven't seen him yet. I mean, he did a good job in walk-through, and we'll see how he goes. We're going to throw him in there today, and that will give me more of an opinion, at least."
