HE ADMITS HE THREW THE SHOE!
Russell Wilson:— Jessamyn McIntyre (@JessamynMcIntyr) December 6, 2018
"It was a shoe, it was time to go - the clock is running, the refs ain't gonna wait for that."
Russ tells @710ESPNSeattle he threw the shoe behind him:
"If we go forward...I don't want a forward pass, I want a lateral."
The San Francisco 49ers had a rough game on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, and Kyle Shanahan’s frustrations boiled over several times. Eventually he was flagged for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, but that the culmination of a day of f-bombs from the 49ers head coach.
It turns out, however, that his unsportsmanlike conduct f-bomb might have been warranted. Shanahan lost his [site decorum] after Elijah Lee was flagged for offsides. Lee was very clearly offsides, but Shanahan believes the decision to rule him offsides was an unfair one due to an action of Russell Wilson.
“Fred Warner lost his shoe and he was going to pick it up, and when he went to pick it up, Russell [Wilson] grabbed it and threw it. And so he had to go about eight more yards to pick it up, and as he was doing that they went hurry-up offense. And so we had a guy ten yards behind the line of scrimmage trying to get his shoe that was thrown out of the way, they were at the line — Fred was gonna be offsides because he was picking up his shoe that was thrown — and then when he saw that, Elijah tried to help him out and run out on the field so he could get off. And that’s why we got the penalty.”
It is worth noting Shanahan said he did not know if Wilson throwing the shoe was malicious in nature, but he felt it was an odd situation.
There is no video yet of Wilson throwing the shoe, but once the All-22 film is available, we will hopefully be able to see it. In the meantime, here is some video that shows Warner jogging off the field with one shoe and Lee running on the field as the Seahawks hurry up the offense.
According to Kyle Shanahan, Russell Wilson threw Fred Warner's shoe, leading to the penalty taken by Shanahan.— Ben Baldwin (@benbbaldwin) December 4, 2018
