San Francisco 49ers: How Kyle Shanahan Can Address the Quarterback Situation

10 February 2017

Lynch and Shanahan officially signed their contracts with the 49ers on Wednesday, though it's not been a secret they were going to be tasked with turning around a team that posted the NFL's second-worst record (2-14) in 2016.

Shananan, a first-time head coach, received a six-year contract, the same length awarded to new general manager John Lynch on January 29, according to multiple reports. By Monday, Shanahan and Flores could be discussing ways to revamp a San Francisco defense that was the worst in the National Football League in 2016. We're not where we need to be. The core group of Falcons responsible for much of the success this past season is anticipated to return in 2017. I called plays in that game the way I have the entire year.

Kyle Shanahan promises to watch all the film on Colin Kaepernick before determining whether he decides if there's a fit for the San Francisco 49ers' offense.

Shanahan will have control of the 53-man roster, and Lynch will have final say on free agency, the draft and the 90-man roster.

It makes sense, in that the 49ers are hiring Shanahan for his offensive expertise.

Once inside, Netanyahu called on May to back renewed sanctions against Iran after the country test-fired a ballistic missile. The leaders emerged around two minutes later to shake hands in front of the assembled media from Britain and Israel.

I think this being one of only 32 jobs was plenty important, but given the offense he could have gone back to for one more year, I think it bodes well he was prepared to take this opportunity. We'll sit down with him and if we see fit that he's a part of it we'll commit to that. The game also looked like a rout in the third quarter, and some 4 million viewers slipped away around the time the Falcons took at 28-3 lead, Nielsen said. He moved up to the Bay Area in sixth grade and spent time as a ball boy for the 49ers.

"That's a big question", Lynch said. However, Shanahan's history with the team would seemingly give them a slightly extra boost in some regard.

Lynch said that the quarterback reached out to him recently and that the group plans to meet in the near future.

Shanahan, 37, is the 20th coach in 49ers history, and their fourth in four years following the departures of Jim Harbaugh, Jim Tomsula and Chip Kelly. Kaepernick showed glimpses - a comeback win over the Rams late in the season was one - that he might have enough to stick around in San Francisco. The next day, the 49ers hired Lynch.
