We finally get the NFL this weekend. Time to get loose and let it rip: And no one is approaching the weekend that way more than Niners new head coach Kyle Shanahan. You might know him as the Falcons former offensive coordinator or you know him as the Red Lobster’s son. Regardless, dude kicked his feet up and started getting loose YESTERDAY…
There’s PLAYOFFS?… there’s THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE… there’s YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME… and now there’s NOT TO BE A D.
I’m not going to say it’s to the Canton level of my man Jim Mora’s DIDDLY POO blast, but it’s up there. Truly awesome.
Love how Shanny tries to cover the mic after he said it. Unfortunately Young Lobster, there’s no putting the snake back in the can. It was a word vomit moment.
A freaking D-bomb drop mid-presser. Look, I can’t knock the guy. I get it. If your team blew a 28-3 lead in the last game you coached you’d be on edge too. Plus, this whole head coach / face of the franchise position is new for him. But let me say this: when you’re in a career where every word you say is broken down and judged to the nth degree, you have to let loose every once in a while. Trust me. No one gets that more than me right now. Especially now that I have this podcast.
30 years in radio, I always have to watch what I say. I haven’t been able to say what I truly want. Or more so HOW I want to say it. You think every time I say FREAKING I really mean FREAKING? Now with the podcast, I can be real. You heard it in episode 1 with Aaron Rodgers. You heard it a bit in episode 2 with Costas and Adam Carolla. Hell, you heard it a bit after this week’s voicemails. I had to let one fly. It wasn’t gratuitous. It was how I truly felt.
When you’re buttoned up for so long, sometimes you just need to let loose. Frankly, I think NFL coaches should be willing to say whatever the hell they want.
Give me Mike Tomlin dropping a STRAIGHT F-bomb. Not Fire, either. Give me Andy Reid hitting us with an S-blast. Or even Mike Mularkey with a MULARKEY blast. Rex Ryan used to hit us with G.D. blasts. I mean, even the Hood has tried to sneak one past the goalie with his mumbled J.C. blasts. So why can’t Shanny bust out a d-bomb? Be a D and let them fly.
