January and February lauding performances from the just completed regular season. The Associated Press gets the love at the NFL Honors program Cheap DeForest Buckner Jersey , but the Pro Football Writers of America offer up their awards first.Earlier today, the PFWA named San Francisco 49ers second year tight end George Kittle and rookie kick returner Richie James to their All-NFC team. Later in the morning, they announced their all-rookie team, and right tackle Mike McGlinchey was the only player listed. McGlinchey and Braden Smith (Indianapolis Colts) were the two offensive tackles on the team.McGlinchey is no surprise, and will likely be on the APís all-rookie team. James did not make the team after earning All-NFC honors, but itís not a shock. Kansas City Chiefs kick returner Tremon Smith got the nod instead. He finished the season fourth in kick return average at 26.8 yards per return. That was actually 1.6 yards per return better than James. Smith did not make the All-AFC team because fellow AFC returner Andre Roberts had a strong season (29.4 yards per return). Weíll see how the AP handles it.Linebacker Fred Warner came up short in the voting. The PFWA selected Darius Leonard, Roquan Smith, and Leighton Vander Esch as their three linebackers. Leonard and Vander Esch are outside linebackers http://www.49erscheapstore.com/k_wau...s-jersey-cheap , while Smith is an inside linebacker. Warner had three more tackles than Smith, but the latter had five sacks and one interception compared to Warnerís none in both categories. Itís been a busy past seven or so days for the San Francisco 49ers coaching staff. On Wednesday, the Denver Broncos hired quarterbacks coach Rich Scangarello to be their offensive coordinator. On the same day, we learned that the Green Bay Packers received permission to interview assistant offensive line coach Adam Stenavich for their vacant offensive line job.Meanwhile, late last week we saw the Green Bay Packers, Cleveland Browns, and Minnesota Vikings all denied interviews with passing game coordinator and wide receivers coach Mike LaFleur, and the Packers and Arizona Cardinals both denied an opportunity to interview run game coordinator Mike McDaniel.Early reports had Scangarello denied an interview with Denver before permission was eventually granted Youth Richard Sherman Jersey , but why in the end did he and Stenavich get a chance to interview, while McDaniel and LaFleur did not?49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan will likely chat with the media next week at the Senior Bowl, and Iím sure heíll get a question or two about this. In the meantime, I have a thought as to what might be happening.The Packers, Browns, and Cardinals are all teams that have a head coach whose experience is on offense. The Packers hired former Titans offensive coordinator Matt LaFleur, the Browns promoted interim offensive coordinator Freddie Kitchens, and the Cardinals hired former Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury. The commonality of all three is they are experienced offensive coaches who the front office hopes can innovate and upgrade their respective offenses.When a team rejects an interview request Cheap Dante Pettis Jersey , sometimes it is because they simply donít want to let an assistant go yet. Sometimes it is because the assistant wants to stay but doesnít want to be seen turning down an opportunity, and so the team can reject it for him and provide cover. Either could be possible here.More specifically however, this could be about what the opportunities would have actually meant for McDaniel and LaFleur. Kyle Shanahan is effectively the offensive coordinator, but McDaniel and LaFleur are also in coordinator roles. In joining teams with offensive minds running the show, they would not have been moving into a clear promotion like Scangarello is getting in Denver.Iím not sure why the 49ers would have declined the Broncos interview initially and then changed their mind, but in the end, Scangarello is getting an opportunity to build on what he has learned and shape an offense in his vision. McDaniel and LaFleur would not get to do that in Tennessee, Green Bay Cheap Ahkello Witherspoon Jersey , or Arizona.Some fansí initial reaction to the rejected interviews was that Shanahan should not stand in the way of his coaches improving their careers. It is possible however that Shanahan and the assistants recognized that those would not have been a sufficient improvement. That is particularly true given that the 49ers offense stands a good chance of taking a big step forward in 2019 with the return of Jimmy Garoppolo. If the 49ers offense improves as it should, McDaniel and LaFleur will be hot candidates for offensive coordinator jobs a year from now. Itís a roll of the dice to some extent, but given the context, it seems like a worthwhile gamble for both assistants.
