FalconsIn2012 Posted July 2, 2020 Share Posted July 2, 2020 I was reading up on the talented offensive assistants we didn’t bother retaining in 2017. We let 4 future OC/HC’s walk without offering so much as a peep of objection. We kept just two coaches from that historic offense which is simply retarted considering the objective was to retain Shanny’s offense....and the ones we kept are not very good. Looking at you, Morgan....regardless, I came across this excerpt and it really makes me wonder what our coaches are up to lately. I haven’t heard much of anything. “A new rule change from the NFL could weaken the 49ers’ coaching staff in 2021. Effective immediately, NFL teams no longer can block their assistant coaches from interviewing for other teams’ coordinator jobs. Big news for 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan, because he blocked two of his assistants from becoming coordinators just last year. Shanahan blocked the interviews for two reasons: 1. He could 2. He depends on McDaniel and LaFleur. They do so much work for him. On a recent video conference with Bay Area reporters, fullback Kyle Juszczyk explained just how important McDaniel and LaFleur are to the offense: “They have been extremely involved. Both of them could run their offense right now -- probably could have years ago. Right now, LaFleur and McDaniel have been pre-recording videos for us to watch on all our pass concepts, our run game. They’ve done a lot of them -- I’m talking 30 15-minute videos, where they’re in their living rooms in front of a projector going over how we install everything. Really just installing the offense for Kyle. And then we go into these offensive skill meetings, and Kyle elaborates on what they already have installed. I truly believe both of them are so capable and ready to run their own offenses. It’s going to be a bummer for us when we lose one of them. They’re going to be really hard to replace, because they’re so valuable and important to this offense and contribute so much to what we do as a team.” Here’s what you need to know about those two: 1. McDaniel is the star. Remember all those new run plays and wrinkles the 49ers used for the first time in 2019? Those probably came from McDaniel. Shanahan and his father are zone-blocking purists. McDaniel is a run-game genius who has mastered every blocking scheme. Most teams would love to have him. Just not the Falcons apparently mountain_jim3, Hashbrown3, Smiler11 and 3 others 5 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
