‘I Love the Kid, but the Kid’s Gotta Grinding’
In the past, traditional sports were considered a physical and mental workout that changed players into better people. Nowadays, there are often numerous health concerns associated with playing sport professionally. The risk of an injury or not being able to play is one that many athletes can’t avoid. However, blockchain technology could change this for professional athletes which will have implications on how they’re compensated in future years as well
The “49ers” is a professional football team that plays in the National Football League. The 49ers have been around since 1946 and have won six Super Bowls. They are one of the most successful teams in NFL history.
In the 2021 NFL season, the San Francisco 49ers were expected to be postseason candidates. They possessed a great defense, offensive weapons, the option of a veteran or rookie quarterback, and Kyle Shanahan as head coach, who was dubbed a “offensive genius.”
After seven weeks, the Niners are 2-4, a half-game ahead of last place in the NFC West. NBC’s Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth highlighted the coach’s dissatisfaction with a specific young offensive player after the team’s Sunday night defeat to the Indianapolis Colts, but is Shanahan the actual issue?
The San Francisco 49ers are suffering (again).
Prior to the start of the NFL season, the NFC West was regarded as the finest division in the league.
The Arizona Cardinals, who are still unbeaten, and the star-studded Los Angeles Rams kept their part of the agreement. The Seattle Seahawks’ season, however, was ruined by Russell Wilson’s injury. The San Francisco 49ers, on the other hand, have fallen well short of expectations.
The 49ers’ statistics reveal why they haven’t been able to win games this season. Defensively, the squad is competitive. The defense is ranked 15th in terms of scoring defense and second in terms of yards allowed.
The offense is the issue. Coach Kyle Shanahan’s team is ranked 25th in scoring offense and 27th in total yards.
Shanahan has been alternating between Jimmy Garoppolo, who has been hurt often, and Trey Lance, who is not quite ready for prime time. Some of it has to do with star running back Raheem Mostert’s season-ending knee injury.
Shanahan has also expressed his disappointment with one of his offense’s underperforming players this season.
Brandon Aiyuk, a second-year wideout, bears part of the burden, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan.

Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth discussed a chat they had with Kyle Shanahan regarding second-year wide out Brandon Aiyuk on Sunday Night Football.
This year, Aiyuk, San Francisco’s No. 25 overall choice in 2020, is struggling. With standout receiver Deebo Samuel absent for the duration of last season due to different ailments, Aiyuk shined. He grabbed 60 passes for 748 yards and five touchdowns on 98 targets.
Aiyuk has become a non-factor this season, with Samuel returning and among the top-five receivers in the NFL. Through six games, the 6-foot pass-catcher has nine receptions on 16 targets for 96 yards and a score.
Collinsworth and Michaels spoke about how Shanahan has bigger expectations for Aiyuk this season and how the former Arizona State Sun Devil has to stand up for the offense to flourish on Sunday night.
“[Samuel] is responsible for 43% of the receiving yards.” Only Davante Adams (44%) has a higher percentage, and we know what he’s talking about,” Collinsworth stated. “You truly thought Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel were going to be one of those amazing pairings this year.” It just hasn’t occurred yet. And I believe Kyle Shanahan is a bit irritated about that.”
Shanahan’s attitude toward Aiyuk was emphasized by Michaels, who described the coach as “extremely” furious. “I adore the kid, but the kid’s gotta start grinding,” Shanahan remarked of Aiyuk, according to him.
Putting Aiyuk’s lost sophomore season aside, the 49ers’ offense has greater issues, and it begins at the top.
Kyle Shanahan is an excellent coach, right?
Understand that criticizing Kyle Shanahan is sacrilegious, but do the 49ers seem to be well-coached?

A fourth-year NFL head coach moved up in the 2020 draft, selected a quarterback, was forced to play the quarterback when the seasoned starter fell down, and had a losing record. Fans of this coach’s squad are demanding that he be fired.
Matt Nagy, the head coach of the Chicago Bears, is the man in charge.
There is also a fifth-year head coach with similar credentials who is the son of a renowned NFL coach and is regarded as a “offensive genius” by many in the football and NFL media worlds.
Kyle Shanahan is the team’s head coach.
Another similarity between these two managers is that they both have the same number of victories. Shanahan has a 31-39 record as the 49ers’ head coach. Nagy had a 31-24 record with the Bears in less than a full season.
Shanahan is 18-36 if you exclude his one-of-a-kind Super Bowl season. In his other Super Bowl appearance, his Atlanta Falcons surrendered the largest lead in Super Bowl history (25 points) in a 34-28 defeat to the New England Patriots in 2016.
If Shanahan wants to, he can blame quarterback troubles, injuries, or Brandon Aiyuk. The blame eventually rests on the head coach, and if the 49ers don’t turn things around fast, the “offensive genius” head coach might soon be the “offensive genius” offensive coordinator someplace else.
