NFL: Super Bowl LIV-San Francisco 49ers vs Kansas City Chiefs Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Breaking news: Super Bowl LIV is over and done with and the off-season has officially begun! The Kansas City Chiefs took home the Lombardi Trophy, ending a fifty-year drought for their franchise while ending Andy Reid’s two decade long trek for the ultimate hardware.

As for the losers, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan finds himself in rarefied air, as I pointed out on The Kist & Solak Show #171:

“Shanahan now becomes a coach directly associated with two of the biggest win probabilities blown in a Super Bowl, the first being the infamous 28-3 comeback win over the Falcons by the Patriots where the Falcons had a 99.7% chance to win, and the second being this one where the 49ers owned a 96.1% win probability.

But as we’ve learned throughout these playoffs, those numbers mean nothing when you have Patrick Mahomes at quarterback as he’s made runs of 51-7 against Houston, 28-7 against the Titans, and he caps it off with another incredible comeback, going on a 21-0 run to give the Chiefs the nod with a final of 31-20.” - Michael Kist
