Redskins fans hold a unique bond with San Francisco coach Kyle Shanahan. He ran the Redskins offense for four seasons from 2010 to 2013 and has since moved on to a number of different coaching jobs. Things didn't exactly end well between Shanahan and the Redskins, and the 49ers coach hasn't been reserved in his comments about his time in Washington. 

What's remarkable, if not incredible, is his unfortunate lack of success in Super Bowls. In 2017, Shanahan was the offensive coordinator of the Atlanta Falcons. His team held a 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl, something that seems insurmountable. Except, Tom Brady and the Patriots came back and shocked Shanahan and Atlanta.

That year, many asked why Shanahan got away from the run game. And unfortunately, on Sunday against Kansas City, Shanahan's team again blew a double-digit lead in the Super Bowl. 

It made sense for San Francisco to stay aggressive against Kansas City on Sunday rather than sit on a lead and bleed the clock. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is incredibly dangerous.

Then again, way back in 2017, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was incredibly dangerous too. The similarities are striking.
