  3. dusty827 on May 19, 2021 at 1:53 am

    All of you 49er fans are full of it. Best coach…Lol.

  4. Rob Freedman on May 19, 2021 at 1:54 am

    My cousin who is a big 49er fan bought one fomr over $50 online

  5. Samuel Honable on May 19, 2021 at 1:54 am

    If 49ers ever going win another Super Bowl under Kyle Shanahan, the offense have to go to another level meaning they have to have a Killer Instinct meaning putting teams away in the fourth quarter what a strong running game alone with a dominant defense.

  6. barak O niner on May 19, 2021 at 1:55 am

    Funny shows called Sims unbuttoned when no buttons are undone on his shirt lol

  7. Billy Vaughn on May 19, 2021 at 2:01 am

    Very interesting glad i listened.. Smart guy.

  8. Carlos R on May 19, 2021 at 2:06 am

    We’ll be back Kyle. It was a misstep on defense that got their run started, he long bomb to Tyreek Hill when Mosely cheated inside for the crossing route. I have no doubt that we will be good for a long time to come.

  9. Mike Quinn on May 19, 2021 at 2:08 am

    Respect to Shanahan, but GO HAWKS!

  10. Michael Acuna on May 19, 2021 at 2:08 am

    Die hard chiefs fan here: listening to this man speak was enlightening, wish his team the best until they cross paths with the chiefs again 👊🏽

  11. Indie Music Minute on May 19, 2021 at 2:09 am

    Hearing Kyle talk shop reminds me what a joke Freddie Kitchens was

  12. Doyle Donehoo on May 19, 2021 at 2:11 am

  13. Dawn Dacquisto on May 19, 2021 at 2:12 am

  16. A X Mak on May 19, 2021 at 2:15 am

    I don’t listen to long interviews but this was an exception. I learned a lot listening to him. Great interview.

  17. Michael Donovan on May 19, 2021 at 2:15 am

    imagine how coach levy of the bills felt losing four superbowls in a row….

  18. Randy Kirchhevel on May 19, 2021 at 2:17 am

    He is so up front he doesn’t run and hide. We will see how they come back and respond.

  19. K A on May 19, 2021 at 2:17 am

    Fantastic stuff. All interviews should be like this.

  20. THOMAS SCHNEIDER on May 19, 2021 at 2:17 am

    Is he using a smart water bottle to hold his phone?

  21. Breezy Man on May 19, 2021 at 2:18 am

    Couldn’t have asked for a better coach to lead the Niners.. future is bright

  22. Robert Newkirk on May 19, 2021 at 2:18 am

    What a great duo, two guys that are so fun, interesting, funny and informative to watch, you both rock!

  23. Peter O on May 19, 2021 at 2:20 am

    How the heck does Chris not have any wrinkles?

  24. Tony Davila on May 19, 2021 at 2:20 am

  25. Dan Carcione on May 19, 2021 at 2:21 am

  26. QuestionableIdentity on May 19, 2021 at 2:22 am

    What a great podcast. Started weird, but once it got going, it got going

  27. Randy Kirchhevel on May 19, 2021 at 2:23 am

    Kyle Shanahan looks like he should of played quarterback he just don’t look like a reciever.

  28. Oscar Ortega on May 19, 2021 at 2:25 am

    Dude I love my coach! Ever since the firing of Tomsula I wished we would hire Shanahan. Look at us now, dude is fucking smart

  29. oldbark9 on May 19, 2021 at 2:26 am

    As a Packer fan I really want to hate him but I can’t. Much respect.

  30. George Garcia on May 19, 2021 at 2:26 am

    Lmao shanny. You have money. Buy a proper phone stand lol 😂

  31. KomodoDojo on May 19, 2021 at 2:28 am

    Kyle Shanahan: I’ll go and lose 8 in a row
    49ers Fans: Please don’t have us go through 8 consecutive 4th quarter loses in SB. My heart can’t take a second one

  32. Ronnie Oatis on May 19, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Glad he’s our coach. Hope we keep him forever

  33. McRonald on May 19, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Kyle, make sure you show Jimmy G how wide open George Kittle was in the Superbowl. He was open he was open oh my God he was so wide open! Also tell Jimmy to pump fake to get the defense leave their feet like in basketball. Maybe there will be less tip balls.

  34. metalman 95 on May 19, 2021 at 2:31 am

    Jamal adams cant cover all of our weapons💯

  35. Arnas Gudaitis on May 19, 2021 at 2:32 am

    lets go shani

  36. Josh Gonzalez on May 19, 2021 at 2:36 am

    Shananhat

  37. Jiu-jitz Life on May 19, 2021 at 2:36 am

    At 54:00 ….Shanahan talks about "when the momentum changed in the SB" ….

    That 3rd and 15.

    If ONLY Bosa beat and got pass Fisher for the sack.

    Oh, wait…he did beat Fisher tho?🤔 🤷‍♂️

    Yet Mahomes was able to get the ball off. So strange? It is what it is tho. They were ALLOWED to make a play. And they made it.

  38. juan p on May 19, 2021 at 2:40 am

    Great podcast ! Can we get more Simms 🙏🙏🙏 Kyle is such a real dude. Let’s run it back!

  39. Matt on May 19, 2021 at 2:41 am

    this was awesome!!!!

  40. José Carlos Fernández on May 19, 2021 at 2:42 am

    good stuff

  41. David Carroll on May 19, 2021 at 2:42 am

    This was fun

  42. John F on May 19, 2021 at 2:43 am

    Honesty? What a concept!

  43. John Bradford on May 19, 2021 at 2:43 am

    Good job chris Simms enjoyed it

  44. 49ers #1 on May 19, 2021 at 2:43 am

    Go niners! Love hearing coach Kyle talk some football

  45. Blue Sky on May 19, 2021 at 2:44 am

    Would be great to win another SB. But honestly, even if we can get to the SB 3 more times before MS retires, I’d be good with that rather than going back to the 4-12 days. Those were miserable days.

  46. HighAssWeed on May 19, 2021 at 2:46 am

    Book it. 425.

  47. D T on May 19, 2021 at 2:46 am

    Get your QB, Kyle. Good luck. Lombardi Trophy, awaits.

  48. Samuel Honable on May 19, 2021 at 2:47 am

    Kyle Shanahan the whole point of keeping Kansas City offense off the field, is being able to run the football to control the clock when we couldn’t do that than I knew the 49ers was in trouble.

  49. Tim Ording on May 19, 2021 at 2:47 am

    Shanahan’s weird light purple hat is killing his team with injuries!

  50. saltdog55 on May 19, 2021 at 2:48 am

    Kyle laughs like Beavis
