Right as halftime began, Kyle Shanahan had a few questions asked. Here’s what he had to say:
First chance to see these guys in action. Overall impressions?
Some positives, some negatives. We’ve got to clean up the penalties. Anytime you get in the endzone twice and neither of them count, big third down there on our first drive that caused a three-and-out. We’ve got to clean that stuff up before we score.
How about defensively? You got contributions from both of your number ones. A pressure from DL Solomon Thomas twice, forced an interception. LB Reuben Foster with a breakup in the endzone. What’s your thoughts there?
It was good to see them get a turnover. Especially [CB] Rashard [Robinson], coming out and getting beat on the go-route early, coming back and made the interception. I’m glad how the guys battled. Not everything was perfect, but it was a good start.
