We have already made it past the halfway point of the NFL offseason and for a team like the San Francisco 49ers the 2019 regular season cannot come soon enough. The NFC is a loaded conference.
With the 49ers getting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo back from injury, the offense is poised to hit major strides this upcoming season. Garoppolo needs to produce in order for this offense to peak. Any lingering effects from his injury or just outright poor play will bring his status for 2020 into question.
The same can be said for head coach Kyle Shanahan who is entering the third year of his contract. He must get the San Francisco 49ers to be in the playoff hunt this season, otherwise his seat will surely begin to heat up.
It begs the question to ask, who faces the most pressure? Is it Jimmy Garoppolo? Or Kyle Shanahan?
