Did the Chiefs win the Super Bowl or did the 49ers lose it?
The San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs faced off in Hard Rock Stadium in Miami in Super
Bowl LIV on Sunday, Feb. 2. The Chiefs would go on to win the game 31-20 after an epic 4th quarter
comeback after leading 20-10.
But, did the Chiefs really win this game or did the 49ers blow the game?
I'll answer it. The 49ers totally blew the game!
They had complete control of the game. Their defense was playing stellar all night long, creating
various opportunities for the offense. However, do you remember the offensive coordinator for the
Atlanta Falcons in their embarrassing Super Bowl loss in 2016 after being up 28-3 at halftime against the
New England Patriots of ALL teams? That man is current 49ers' head coach Kyle Shanahan. Instead of
using Devonta Freeman and the rest of the Falcons' running back core, he continued to PASS the ball,
even with a 25 POINT LEAD!
So, if Shanahan could blow a 25-point lead in the 2016 Super Bowl, it's easy to see how he'd blow a 10
point lead in another one four years later.
How do you not give Raheem Mosert the ball the run out the clock and keep the ball out of the hands
of a fast playmaker like Patrick Mahomes? He ran for 220 yards in the NFC championship game 2 weeks
prior! How many times did they throw in that game? Eight!
It's also obvious that Jimmy Garoppolo can only win championships sitting back up to Tom Brady. He
was hidden behind Brady all of these years. Finally, he has been exposed. What a horrific performance
The 49ers ran all year long and had success, but decided not to use it in the most important game of
the year! Props to Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense for scoring THREE touchdowns in the 4 th
quarter. I have no disrespect for the Chiefs at all. I called for them to win.
However, if the 49ers had ran the ball, took out the clock and kept the ball out of the Chiefs' hands,
they would have most likely won the game. Shanahan threw his defense to the wolves and they simply
got gassed from the fast pace of the Chiefs offense. The loss is certainly not on them.
At the end of the day, the Lombardi trophy is now in Kansas City, Missouri when it probably should've
been in San Francisco, California. The city of San Francisco should be absolutely disgusted with this!
