Earlier in the week, Elliot Harrison at NFL.com released his 2019 NFL Head Coach Power Rankings, and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan was ranked 23rd. Our own Kyle Posey did a nice job analyzing the article and ranking in Tuesday’s Nuggets, but there was another opinion of the ranking that caught my attention this week as well.

On Tuesday’s episode of The Herd, Fox Sports Analyst Colin Cowherd criticised the low ranking for Shanahan, and actually went so far as to suggest that Kyle Shanahan is the next Bill Belichick. Cowherd said the following about Shanahan:

“..since he’s been in San Francisco here’s the QB attempts. CJ Beathard’s thrown 400 balls, Nick Mullens 275, Brian Hoyer 205, Jimmy G only 267. Those are the QB’s he’s dealt with. The team health has been 29th and 23rd, meaning his teams can’t stay healthy. The schedule? The 7th toughest and the 15th toughest. In a division with Seattle and the Rams, both really good”

He would go on to compare Shanahan to Belichick based on several different points, the primary being that both were very successful coordinators who struggled as head coached until they found their franchise QB (Shanahan is 6-2 with Jimmy G at QB).

If you want to watch the full video of Colin discussing the comparision, here is the link:


The discussion starts at around the 6:20 mark in the video.
