Kyle Shanahan hopes to see Ravens again

There was talk about Sunday’s game between the Ravens and 49ers being a potential Super Bowl preview in the last few days and there wasn’t much about the matchup to dissuade people from thinking that would be a pretty good way to end the season.

The teams were tied at three different points throughout the game and the 49ers defense did more to slow down the Ravens offense than any other opponent this season. That wasn’t enough to get them a win as Justin Tucker‘s field goal at the buzzer gave the Ravens a 20-17 win, but that result didn’t dampen head coach Kyle Shanahan’s enthusiasm for his team or the prospect of facing Baltimore again.

“I was really proud of the team,” Shanahan said, via ESPN.com. “I thought they played extremely hard, all three phases. (We) definitely played against a real good team, but I was really happy with our guys and how they played. We had every chance to win that game. We came up a little bit short there at the end. Give credit to them. Hopefully, we can earn an opportunity to maybe get a chance to play them some other time again.”

Before the Niners can think about facing the Ravens again, they will need to navigate the rest of their schedule. Sunday’s loss means the Seahawks can take over first place in the NFC West with a win over the Vikings on Monday night and the Niners have to turn around for a trip to New Orleans next weekend.

  1. I think that if the Niners had Russell Wilson as their quarterback with that defense they would still be undefeated and probably remain undefeated and win the Super bowl easily.

  2. Lamar was treated like a princess today. Roughing the passer calls, affecting a game of this magnitude is ridiculous. You run out of the pocket your fair game. Hey ingrham you were shut down by the Niners D today, just shut your mouth and play football next time. Niners will be in the SB this year.

    Lamar made the difference.

    Vick, too.

    As always, it will pass. It always does with run based qbs

  4. Yeah, right. WC round road loser now that the Seahawks are the clear NFC West Champions and eventual Lombardi trophy winners. Hawks exposed the ‘whiners and now they will go 0-fer the rest of the season with the blueprint on tape. #seahawksdynasty2.0

  5. Great game, two outstanding teams. As a Ravens fan, I am hats off to the Niners as the only team to slow our offense. If these two teams meet 10 times, what would be the record? 5-5? I hope to see you again in the Superbowl, we both deserve to get there.

  6. If the 49ers play in the Super Bowl, it will be interesting to see if Kyle’s stubbornness with play calling costs them the championship just as he did with the Falcons. Kyle’s “genius” wouldn’t allow him to run the ball in the 4th quarter to limit the Patriot’s possessions to protect that 28-3 lead. Falcons fans will never forget Kyle’s arrogance regarding his play calling.

  7. “Falcons fans will never forget Kyle’s arrogance regarding his play calling.”

    How has Atlanta been doing since he left?

    I bet you pray at night for Lamar’s demise. Seriously though, what the heck does that have to do with anything? Lamar was the difference today, why are you planning for his demise? Clown

  9. Damn!!! Name another fan base that beats their chest and trolls other teams threads more then Seahawk fans?? Seriously it’s pathetic how they need to constantly boast about their team, coming across like insecure biscuits!!! Seriously no other fanbase is that pathetic or thirsty for attention.

  10. Maybe, but some NFC champ will see the Ravens. The Patriots is not SB caliber this year. Must be the brain drain. That Flores can’t built his own team from scratch and had to get the Patriots coaches en masse.

  11. Saints will be destroyed by the Niners just like Greenbay was. Brees will be on his back more than he’s upright. Niners D is best in the league and the Saints will go down in flames.

  12. Damn!!! Name another fan base that beats their chest and trolls other teams threads more then Seahawk fans??

    I don’t see the sarcastic font. Am I missing the sarcastic font?

    Half the loud obnoxious 49er fan base has already disappeared with the perfect season after that first Hawks game.

    If you’re being serious you sound pretty angry. Tough losses will do that but not to worry, the saints are waiting next week. A chance at redemption is coming soon enough…

    Or more anger.

  13. Ninerssolid. Saints are the only NFC contender that has a defense capable of consistent up front pressure. We’ll see soon enough, slick. I think you’ll be disappointed. Especially with the game in the Superdome.

    …and the Ravens already beat the Seahawks in their house! Ravens own the NFC West!

  15. Its possible. It was a great game. But I love how everyone is already counting out the pats. Not a good idea. Every time people assume they are done they win a sb

  16. I like the 49ers on a neutral field. Guys like Lamar just don’t win titles. You gotta know something is going to happen to keep him from a championship. I’m not thinking injury. I’m thinking something more systemic, more endemic to the pro game.

    Who comes out of the ACC will all depend on matchups. I don’t think the Ravens can beat the Chiefs, so the Ravens have to hope they don’t meet. I am thinking they WILL meet, either in the divisional round of AFCCG.

    The best thing that you could hope for if you are a Patriots fan — and let’s assume for the sake of simplicity that there are no upsets in the wild card round and all the division winners advance — is that the Texans have to go to Foxboro and the Chiefs to Baltimore. I think the Patriots fix their offense by the postseason and that the Texans get thumped in Foxboro. I am also thinking the Chiefs beat the Ravens in Baltimore much like the Chargers did LAST year. Then the Chiefs go to Foxboro and the Patriots advance to SB 54, giving the world what it wants to badly to see: the Jimmy Garapolo Bowl. Given how familiar Belichick is with the Kyle Shanahan of the Atlanta Falcons (SB 51) and New York Jets and with Jimmy G that the Patriots manhandle the 49ers like they did the Rams last year.

    I know that it’s not a chic pick right now but remember where we were last year this time. The Patriots lost their luster after losing consecutive games to the Dolphins and Steelers. Everyone was surprised when they jumped all over the Chargers (the entire second half was garbage time) and then when they held Mahomes scoreless in the first half of the AFCCG. Then they made the Rams potent offense look feeble.

    Brady attributes the turnaround to a chip the team had on its shoulder after everyone bet against them. The Ravens are known for being able to motivate themselves this way but now that they defeated the Patriots and now that Bill O’Brien got his first win against the Patriots, this will take a lot of the edge off

  17. Sure you want to be the NFC representative in the Superbowl but it doesnt even matter. Your 2nd rate organization doesn’t hold a candle to the elite Ravens organization.

  18. “Lamar was treated like a princess today. Roughing the passer calls, affecting a game of this magnitude is ridiculous. You run out of the pocket your fair game. Hey ingrham you were shut down by the Niners D today, just shut your mouth and play football next time. Niners will be in the SB this year.”

    Four 1st round picks on the D line is daunting. Of course the 49ers earned them.

  19. Ravens beat Seattle … SF … Patriots .. but they also lost …. lost to Cleveland and lost badly … also lost to KC.

    Is Cleveland better than Baltimore?

    Of course Baltimore is different now … but so are all the teams.

  20. Wouldn’t mind beating them in the super bowl again

    Ravens two toughest games were at home so I wouldn’t be gloating yet Francis. You got some home town calls you won’t get on the road. Buckle up you haven’t won anything yet.

    Lamar had one call out of the pocket, a late hit out of bounds, but the flag was picked up sooooo. The other two were Roughing the Passer in the pocket and were legitimate. One was a blow to the head, and the other was bush league and borderline dirty. A DL who wasn’t being blocked just dove at Lamar’s legs after he had let go of the ball. He should get those calls. You can thank Brady, Manning, Brees, and Rodgers for the protections. Just because he’s more Athletic than they are doesn’t mean he shouldn’t get the same protections in the pocket. And look I get it, as a Ravens fan who only had a great D with no O for most of the franchise’s history, I was always frustrated when we played Brady and the other Golden Boys of the NFL. Seemed like the refs would have their hands on the flag anytime we were close to them. I was always told by many fanboys on here, “Quit whining, those are the rules. Maybe your coaches should learn to adjust and not try and play dirty.”. So to you I say……….well you get the point.

  22. Neither of the RTP calls were the result of Bush league or dirty play. They were gimmies to the home team on 3rd down.

    Objective fans can see that. It was a great game and the league will want to replicate this match-up, I’d bet.

    seawhaks and their troll fans can go back their basements in a few weeks and cling to that DVR’d game of the one ring dynasty, forever 1-2’s

    Did you forget about the browns and steelers games? LOL

    ————————————————————————————-

    The first roughing the passer call was on a third and three..hit was late and to the head, gets called for everyone in the league.

    Second call was 2nd and 7 and he completed the pass to the TE and the DE dove at his legs. Not that I personaly agree with the rule in general, but it was called as written.

    I guess that you could argue that the 3rd and 3 play was a big call but hardly a critical one at the start of the second quarter, but the one on second and 7 wasnt some huge benefit to the Ravens as it wasnt even third down, the pass was completed, and they were on their own 27.

    But never let the facts get in the way of your argument. Sour grapes man. Release the anger and hate.

  25. 49ers will likely go 2-2 in their last four games (@No, Atl, Rams, @Sea) and might even go 1-3 depending on which Rams team shows up to play. Seahawks should win the division with SF being a wild-card.
