There isnít a more iconic duo than Kyle Shanahan and blowing double digit leads in Super Bowls.


Shanahan put too much on Jimmy G in the fourth quarter. Should've ran more on that final drive when they had all their timeouts, or at least called some easier passing plays like a drag or a bubble screen. Can't expect to win when you get to 4th and 10.

Congratulations to Steve only reason I was pulling for KC.

Yup, hasnt Spags got 3 super bowls now? 2 with the Giants?

I know his D looked bad here, but the entire team was a mess that year.

I can live with KCC and Mahomes winning. I had hoped they would. KCC long suffering, faithful fans. Early team of the NFL.
Tyran M. Honey Badger from LSU got a SB.
Strange story. Life takes weird turns. Spags and Matthews.



All those years cheering for SF 49ers ( Montana years and Young too) in SB because , well, who else were we Saints fans were going to cheer for.
It was ranked every year SF49ers , L.A. Rams, Atl Falcons, and. then and then New Orleans Saints in our little division back then.

Guess that's why I can't in good conscious pull for SF, those were brutal years for Who Dats.

I said that very thing when that play happened. Against us, it was a good "non-call", but tonight "it was the right call".

Saintfan was very angry right then, but it was tempered since the call went against the whiners...

Mahomes shouldn't have been the MVP... he didn't play well at all.

Getting the names wrong, bias analysis, looping inaccurate talking points on a team or player...

There's the same potential for improvement in announcing/analysis of NFL games as there is in officiating games...

Well, I didn't get home from visiting family in hospital in New Orleans until there was ~10 minutes left in game, but that last 10 minutes won the game for KC, so I've no problem naming Mahomes the MVP...

Yeah, was very happy for Andy Reid and Tyrann Mathieu; Honey Badger really turned his life around and has become a credible voice in the NFL community...

Know it's a broken record, but imagine a world where Saints GM Payton signed the Honey Badger...

Yeah, they were flat out ripping the Chiefs with the run and then went back to the pass...

Excuse, feeling uneasy with some dťjŗ vu...

Really happy for Reid, he deserved this. Pretty good SB imho. The Chiefs really are the comeback-kings.

I am really happy Richard Sherman lost.

It would not surprise me if Kareem Hunt is kicking himself right now.

I guess we're different then. When I'm watching a game the player names don't matter to me, I really don't pay attention to any analysis, and talking points are nothing more than background noise. I am simply watching and enjoying the game for what it is. I honestly have no recollection of the announcers from the game yesterday. Honestly. None. I remember watching the whole game and enjoying it, though.

My thinking is well.

It's not how you start but how you finish. Those 4th quarter drives with everything at stake, improvising, critical throws defines you being a good player vs elite. 3rd and 15, Niners D all over him yet he rolls out and extends the ball beyond the marker to keep the chains moving. Clutch.

PM is a young, elite talent.

No lead is safe against the Chiefs with him under center.

The Reid/Beinemy/Pat Mahommes show comes to the Dome in 2020.

That should be fun.

Solid choice as well.

How fitting many "analysts" always labeled Andy Reid as the coach who would abandon the run in the biggest game on the planet ...

Yet he stuck to the run.

Shanahan didn't learn a thing from blowing the lead against the Pat's!!

After Mostert picked up five yards on a first-down carry, Shanahan called for two straight pass plays -- resulting in two incompletions from quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. It was the 49ers' first three-and-out of the game.

When asked if he wished they had run the ball more on that possession, Shanahan stood by his decision.

"No not at all," he said. "The last thing you're thinking about when you're up three points and there is that much time left, the clock is not an issue at that time, especially with the timeouts. The issue was moving the chains. If you move the chains, then you will wind the clock."


Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo completed just three of his last 11 attempts and was intercepted once; another pass play ended in a sack. In those two Super Bowls, Shanahan's offenses have now been outscored 46-0 in the fourth quarter and overtime.

They only ran the ball eight times after they went down 20-10 and four of those were Mahomes scrambles. They went extremely pass heavy once they got down. That's also not counting the three Mahomes kneel downs on the final possession which go in the books as rushing attempts.

Tyreek Hill. Great route on the 44 yard catch. And on the play before that he would have caught the first down to move the chains, just couldn't quite keep it from touching the ground but gave a good effort. I'm not a Tyreek fan and kept waiting for the predictable Tyreek fumble or bonehead play, never really happened. He really stepped up.

K Major 02-03-2020 01:25 PM

Re: Super Bowl Game Day Thread
 
I haven't seen a QB with Pat's ability at his age (24) in quite a while.

Niners didn't play bad defensively. It's just that Pat made plays, avoided sacks, made 4/5 yard completions to adjust arm angles, keeping drives alive. This was with Nick Bosa breathing down his neck all game .. in the Super Bowl. That's big time, prime time. Andy Reid/Eric B wore the Niners defense out late. Kelsey/Hill/Watkins and #15 pulling the trigger ... very difficult to defend.

I can count QB's on one hand who has that type of escapability. The scary part is that this is only Pat's 2nd full season as a starter.

vpheughan 02-03-2020 02:04 PM

Re: Super Bowl Game Day Thread
 
It isn't the number of rushing attempts but the yards gained per attempt.

A team can rush the ball 35 times and gain 70 yards or 3 times and gain 150

Mahomes had 44 yards entering Kansas City's final possession. With the Chiefs leading 31-20 and 57 seconds remaining, Mahomes kneeled on three straight plays, losing 15 yards. He finished with 29 yards rushing.

Screw the 49ers, the Chiefs, and the league.... Quite a few plays were called/not called inconstantly with the way they have been calls against us. Our fault for leaving games in the hands of the refs.

Bosa should have the MVP. Sherman not getting a ring was worth the money spent on alcohol needed to watch the game.

I have not seen the Saints play as hungry as either of those teams in years. Both teams played like they were trying to make the Refs blow the play dead, we have played like we were waiting on the whistle for a few years now.

This is a very good thing. Many of those players come from families with NFL backgrounds. They need to be the vocal leaders. Cam Jordan's father was great player, as was Michael Thomas' uncle. They also learned the vocal leadership from players like Mark Ingram who also had a very successful NFL father.

Don't forget that this is a business to them. It's their job to make as many appearances as they can. While they can be emotionally attached it is in a different manner than a fan.
