NFC Notes: 49ers, Rams, Seahawks

     

49ers

Regarding the 49ers being the last team in the NFL without permittance to team facilities, HC Kyle Shanahan does not think that gives them competitive disadvantage given all players in the league are currently not allowed back. 

“The players aren’t there, so you’re not getting a big advantage,” Shanahan said, via Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle. “Nothing that (coaches) can’t do on Zoom meetings. I would feel differently if other players were allowed in the building in other places. That would be a huge disadvantage for us, but until guys can start working with players, it doesn’t bother me.”

Shanahan added that it does not bother him that the 49ers’ coaches haven’t been permitted access to team facilities due to Santa Clara, California COVID-19 standards. 

“You want every advantage possible,” Shanahan said. “But our county is not there yet. And it doesn’t bother me that much because I do understand.”

  • Ben Volin of the Boston Globe thinks the 49ers are positioned well to weather the unique challenges of the 2020 season given how much continuity they’re bringing back. 

Rams

  • Ben Volin of the Boston Globe thinks the Rams will be more affected by the unique challenges of the 2020 season given how much change they’re working through.
  • Los Angeles has new coordinators, Kevin O’Connell, Brandon Staley and John Bonamego, on offense, defense and special teams. 

Seahawks

  • Ben Volin of the Boston Globe thinks the Seahawks are positioned well to weather the unique challenges of the 2020 season given how much continuity they’re bringing back.
