1:02 - 2:34 It would have been a great moment to get a win vs. Titans, Shanahan says team wasn’t able to close the door in frustrating loss

2:35 - 6:00 Offense falls apart, Jimmy G goes back to old habits with interceptions, bad throwing decisions, miscommunications

36:50 - 37:45 49ers are always looking to improve “by any means necessary…trying to make strategic moves”

37:46 - 39:23 Why the 49ers seemingly shifted during the season “our beliefs, systems don’t change, but we established our identity as a physical team,” crediting Shanahan, constant development on and off the field

39:25 - 40:25 Lynch describes “the mine” of 49ers trying to strike gold in player development at practice, mentally, physically, increased effort in coaching

53:15 - 53:55 “Special teams have to be better” Lynch says it’s a collective effort for that unit

53:59 - 55:05 49ers have been built with a lot of potential, stars are shining, but there’s work to do 

55:17 - 58:00 “You always have to fight in this league” but 49ers are fighting hard
