One is known for rocking new Yeezy kicks, the other for rocking old Punt-Pass-Kicks. Which head coach has the edge in Super Bowl 54?

Kyle Shanahan, 49ers

  • Career: 25-25 straight up (SU), 25-24-1 against the spread (ATS)
  • Postseason: 2-0 SU, 2-0 ATS
  • Challenges: 10-of-18 (55.6%)

Shanahan loves himself some playaction. During the regular season, the 49ers employed playaction on 27.4% of pass attempts, the fifth-highest rate in the NFL according to Pro Football Reference.

It proved effective. San Francisco’s 11.2 yards per attempt on playaction ranked third best. When Jimmy Garoppolo isn’t play-faking, he’s hardly passing at all. The 49ers rushed on 52% of their offensive plays, the highest rate in the league this side of Baltimore.
