Kyle Shanahan responds to George Kittle’s take on 49ers’ effort vs. Falcons

Following the Atlanta Falcons’ 28-14 victory over the 49ers on Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, tight finish George Kittle and his trainer Kyle Shanahan had differing evaluations on what led to the disillusioned.

It’s widely recognized that the workforce is coping with a apparently unending wave of accidents. But Kittle instructed newshounds after the sport that primarily based on his preliminary postgame response, the loss boiled down to a loss of effort on San Francisco’s section.

Shanahan was once in a position to reply to Kittle’s feedback all through a convention name Monday and was once appreciative of his participant’s perception. Having watched the tape, on the other hand, he supplied a distinct take.

“I would disagree with that,” Shanahan stated of Kittle’s feedback. “I imply, I really like George announcing that, that’s to me how you’re feeling, particularly when a workforce roughly dominates the sport in the case of how they ran the ball, with the quantity of carries they were given, the time of ownership and stuff like that.

“I didn’t look at any of the guys lacking intensity or going after it.”

Kittle’s feedback have been echoed via linebacker Fred Warner, who stated after the sport that 49ers defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans accrued his avid gamers for a mid-game pep communicate to lend a hand them “get going.”

 

But the Falcons have been already up via two touchdowns and proceeding to command the run recreation, in the end completing the competition with 24 extra speeding makes an attempt and 118 extra speeding yards than the 49ers.

Shanahan believes San Francisco was once up towards an Atlanta workforce that poses a bodily problem for combatants week in and week out. That, coupled with the 49ers’ failure to execute in positive offensive eventualities, led to the loss.

“That was a very physical team,” Shanahan stated. “That’s how they’ve performed each unmarried workforce they’ve performed. That’s why they’ve been in just about each recreation they’ve performed … They’ve been shut to profitable a bunch in a row. That’s why that they had a possibility to come again as opposed to Tampa.

“But I thought it came more down to the turnover that we had and not converting on those third downs that allow us to get into our physicality with running the ball.”

To Shanahan’s level in regards to the Falcons’ report, all 3 in their losses on the season were via six issues or much less.

That roughly physicality and power allowed Atlanta to take benefit of San Francisco’s 38 % potency on 3rd down and 3 turnovers on the day.

Sunday’s consequence apart, Kittle and the remainder of the 49ers will want to deliver all their effort and depth into their Week 7 matchup towards the Kansas City Chiefs at Levi’s Stadium.
