The 49ers beat the Packers in the NFC Championship game in a game where it seemed like Green Bay didn’t stand a chance despite San Francisco throwing only 8 times and handing it off to a running back who was cut six times before becoming a Niner.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan’s exquisite play-calling and preparation also came into effect, and was noticeable on one play in particular late in the game that was captured on camera from an angle not seen on TV.
Video from the 49ers sideline show Shanahan approaching the ref prior to the snap, telling him that his TE was going to be held by the opposing cornerback on the ensuing play.
Sure enough, that’s exactly what happened.
