49ers Extend Shanahan Through 2025

They had the option to retain Wade Philips and hire Kyle Shanahan, and passed. Damn it, John Elway.

It would be hard to find more HCs who seemed more out of touch than V. Joseph.  Reminds me of a brilliant quote I once read on this site regarding Jim Caldwell; something to the effect of "he looks like he's waiting for a bus a surprised a football game broke out in front of him".
