With offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan making his exit to become the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, the sensational offense that fueled their run to Super Bowl 51 will be scrutinized.
But Shanahan actually arrived in the Bay Area on Wednesday afternoon, as the team and its public relations staff tweeted his plane landing. Running back Devonta Freeman and his agent expressed a desire for Freeman to get a new contract, with one season remaining on his four-year rookie deal. Naturally, the conversation now moves to potential additions to the 49ers coaching staff underneath the two men in charge.
It makes sense, in that the 49ers are hiring Shanahan for his offensive expertise.
It seems like Jed York finally might be learning from past mistakes. Atlanta's coaches - particularly offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan - were at the center of the collapse thanks to some questionable playcalling. "Colin, like a lot of players, is someone I'll be watching a lot of tape on in the coming weeks", Shanahan said.

Her takedown game isn't great, but it's better than De Randamie's, so she could eat up some time with attempts and top control. Prior to that, Randamie also won her fight against Larissa Pacheco at UFC 185: Pettis vs. dos Anjos .

Home fans paid tribute to the former manager Graham Taylor in the 72nd minute but the visitors pulled a goal back moments later. Asked about Michael Oliver's decision to send Hendrick off, Dyche respoonded: "It's a tough one".
Still, however, numerous talking points were the same: CEO Jed York, again, believes the right people are in place to lead to the 49ers back to respectability and beyond. Shanahan may also want to poach Turner, a distinguished coach who spent with him in Washington and once coached Terrell Davis in Denver, but I'm hopeful the Falcons will be able to keep him given the fantastic work he's done with Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. Shanahan was asked if it was accurate that he said "I blew it" in reference to his play calling after the game.
"We've already discussed it but we're going to get together and find out exactly what he's looking for in a quarterback", Lynch said on KNBR-AM, via the San Jose Mercury News. It'll be interesting to see how this all plays out, but at the very least, Shanahan will get to mold whoever his future quarterback is from the word go.
The hire is the third in as many years for the 49ers, as Chip Kelly and Jim Tomsula were dismissed in the last two years after just one campaign each. Unfortunately, Tom Brady made a decision to weave his magic and anchored one of the greatest comebacks in National Football League history. One of his key lieutenants, vice president of personnel Adam Peters, was the director of college scouting for the Broncos previous year. "That's something that. I didn't think it was something I could pass up".
He really has to focus on that offense to have any success with what he has in San Francisco.
