New 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan will not hire an offensive coordinator, and plans to call his own plays next season, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Shanahan, who coordinated the NFL’s highest-scoring offense last season, has lots of experience leading offenses: He had OC stints with the Texans (2008-2009), Redskins (2010-2013), Browns (2014) and Falcons (2015-16).
“I especially enjoyed how over-eager Roger was to smile at all the Patriots and give them a big handshake, but then as soon as he gave them the trophy he scurried off the stage like a rat,” Thomas said. “It was awesome.”
If it looked like Goodell and Brady’s interaction wasn’t overly friendly, that’s because it wasn’t. Broadcaster Jim Gray was able to witness the handshake up close and in person, and told his story about how it went down to the Los Angeles Times.
Tom kind of looked at his hand, [then] shook his hand. Roger said, ‘Congratulations,’ and he tried to pull him in, and Tom just stood there and said, ‘Thank you.’
It wasn’t contentious, but it wasn’t warm. I think Tom was caught off guard, probably expecting to see him on the podium. Then the commissioner said, ‘You played great,’ and all Tom did was say, ‘Thank you,’ nodded his head. Then, Roger walked away.
Watching live, it did seem like Goodell got off stage in a hurry. It’s just interesting Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Site to hear Thomas speak about it so candidly, but he told PFT Live that as he’s gotten older, he Cheap Jerseys USing Paypal doesn’t fear the potential backlash anymore.
