Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers suffered more Super Bowl heartbreak Sunday night in Miami Gardens, Fla.
San Francisco took a 10-point lead into the fourth quarter, but the Kansas City Chiefs scored 21 unanswered points and won Super Bowl LIV 31-20.
The numbers don't look good for Shanahan, who also lost Super Bowl LI when he was offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons.

While 49ers CEO Jed York was disappointed his team couldn't bring home a sixth Lombardi trophy, he kept a positive attitude after the loss.
Congrats to the @Chiefs It sucks for it to end like this but we will hold our heads high. Thank you to our players and coaches for a magical season. Thanks to the #Faithful for your unwavering support— Jed York (@JedYork) February 3, 2020
Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio doubled down on his criticism of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo by tweeting this GIF after the game.
Josiah Johnson posted a tweet that appears to be a reference to the 49ers letting Colin Kaepernick go.

Falcons linebacker Takkarist McKinley was drafted by Atlanta in 2017, shortly after Shanahan left for the 49ers. Yet he still took a shot at the 49ers coach.

In one of the stranger tweets, former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant called for a team to acquire 49ers backup Nick Mullens.
Random....I’ve said this and I’ll say this again Nick Mullens is a star quarterback in this league... a team needs to get him off the bench— Dez Bryant (@DezBryant) February 3, 2020
On a lighter note, Andy Reid finally won his first Super Bowl in his 21st season an NFL head coach. His former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, shouted him out after the game.

And as always is the case when the Super Bowl ends, the Giants and A's wanted to make sure you know it's baseball season.
It's going to take Shanahan and the 49ers a while to get over the pain of losing the Super Bowl. But they have a bright future with a lot of young players returning next season.
