Kyle Shanahan and the Atlanta Falcons have been putting on quite the show for the last 2 games. The Falcons were hitting on all cylinders on Sunday in demolishing the Green Bay Packers 44-21. Matt Ryan blitzed the Packers’ defense for 4 TDs and just shy of 400 yards. The win will force the 49ers to wait another 2 weeks to be able to hire Kyle as their next head coach.
Kyle, who is tabbed as the next 49ers coach, will likely have a good amount of control of the roster when he is hired. He will have a huge task in getting the roster to the level that the Atlanta Falcons offense has right now. Julio Jones is a freak of nature and the 2 RBs in the backfield compliment each other very well. Matt Ryan seems to have mastered Kyle’s offense and it is beautiful to watch. The Falcons were the top scoring offense in the NFL and ranked top 5 in rushing and passing yards. The 49ers front office will hope Kyle can turn the 49ers offense into a powerhouse offense just like the Falcons.
A new team joined the 49ers as a destination looking for a new GM. The Colts fired their GM and have started to search for a replacement. They are interviewing their in-house candidate, Jimmy Raye, who was interviewed by the 49ers. They are also likely to interview George Paton from the Vikings, who is high on the 49ers GM list. The 49ers are scheduled to bring Paton to their 2nd meeting with Kyle Shanahan. They hope they will bond and that they can have a good working relationship, which was missing when Trent Baalke was the GM.
