49ers players hilariously called Kyle Shanahan to tell him they were alive on Sunday, per report

I’m sure — I hope — Kyle Shanahan had a good laugh over this one.

Because when he responded to reporters’ questions about whether QB Jimmy Garoppolo would be on the roster come this past Sunday, he responded, “I can’t guarantee that anybody in the world will be alive Sunday, so I can’t guarantee who will be on our roster on Sunday.”

Yes, it was dark. Yes, NFL fans made so many jokes. And also, on Friday, he did say — per Pro Football Talk — that he “hated how that came off” and he explained what he was actually trying to do there with this quote:

“That was between me and that guy, had nothing to do with Jimmy when I said, I didn’t know if we’d be alive on Sunday. I was just trying not to get my typical answer of, ‘Guys, anybody can be traded if you get a bunch of ones, John should trade me, and I shouldn’t be here on Sunday.’”

But he should have no regrets, because of what resulted because of the quote. According to NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo, Niners players called Shanahan on Sunday with a specific message:

Take 2 sans typo:

This is tremendous. I’m told a group of #49ers players called Kyle Shanahan today to let him know they survived until Sunday. So good.
