Kyle Shanahan explains his unwavering trust in Jimmy Garoppolo, says 49ers are 'battle-tested'

Jimmy Garoppolo makes his mistakes. That hasn't deterred head coach Kyle Shanahan from sticking with him, though. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback delivered a gutsy performance in the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams, playing through a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. The Week 18 win set up a playoff matchup against an old rival—the Dallas Cowboys. The 49ers went into AT&T Stadium and emerged with a 23-17 victory, which was anything but pretty. A playoff win is a playoff win, though, and the Niners will move on to Lambeau Field to face the Green Bay Packers. Garoppolo finished the game 16-of-25 passing for a pedestrian 172 yards and a rather ugly interception. But he did so while enduring the pain of throwing. That

Around the NFL writer Dan Hanzus released an updated power ranking on Tuesday. Understandably, the Kansas City Chiefs, winners of Sunday's thrilling Divisional Playoff matchup against the Buffalo Bills, earned the No. 1 spot.

Hanzus wrote the following about the 49ers within his power rankings: These 49ers are a deeply resilient bunch. On Saturday night at Lambeau Field, San Francisco's special teams saved the day with two season-saving blocks -- one on

Jimmy Garoppolo has had to block out a lot of outside noise. You have to imagine that can be tough at times. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback is often criticized by the media and a vocal portion of the fanbase. Garoppolo spoke with reporters before Wednesday's practice and said he refuses to get lost in the noise. He knows no good will come from listening to it. Instead, he stays focused on the task ahead. Last week, it was upsetting the top-seeded Green Bay Packers. This week, it is beating the Los Angeles Rams for the third time this season and advancing to the Super Bowl for the second time in three years. "I think it's just about knowing yourself as a player, as a person," Garoppolo said. "And as long as these guys in this locker room have faith in me and



49ers' Mike McDaniel explains what makes Deebo Samuel so unique

Deebo Samuel is a unique freak. That's obvious. Nobody's done what he's done as a receiver in the running game all season, and the third-year receiver doesn't seem to be stopping anytime soon, as he had ten rushes for 72 yards and a touchdown on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys. Offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel, who's best known as a run game specialist, which is the 49ers forte, has found ways to utilize Samuel in unconventional ways due to the wide skillset that the receiver has with his abilities and athletic frame. McDaniel feels that there really is not a definitive term for a player like Samuel, given how uniquely the 49ers have schemed their offense. "Well, Deebo has been unique to all of our careers because you're always trying to define
