They also discuss Brock Purdy’s and the offense’s worst performance of the season, where the 49ers need to improve, some trade targets to keep an eye on, and what to expect in Week 7 in Minnesota
All that & much more on the Return of the Empire.
“I mean, you’ve got to play good football in this league, or you are going to get beat. It doesn’t matter who you play or what or when, but we didn’t play that good of football,” coach Kyle Shanahan said Monday. “Rarely do the football gods reward you when you make as many mistakes as we did. Not just missed assignments, penalties, missed tackles, a couple missed opportunities that are the difference in winning and losing. When you miss those throughout the game, rarely does it work out in the end.
“I think it was a good learning experience and really all that matters is when we come in, when they come in tomorrow and they watch this film with us, just like all that matters when they came in after Dallas and watched the film, is that you watch what you did good, you watch what you did bad, and you make sure that you get better the next week.”
