49ers hand Kyle Shanahan multiyear contract after Super Bowl appearance

first_imgCongrats coach!The #49ers announced today that the team has signed head coach Kyle Shanahan to a multi-year contract extension.— San Francisco 49ers (@49ers) June 15, 2020San Francisco limped to a 4-12 record in 2018 with quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo limited to three games because of a torn ACL. The nine-win improvement is tied for the third-largest in NFL history, surpassed only by the 1999 Colts and 2008 Dolphins. Those teams won 10 more games than the previous year.  Shanahan, the son of two-time Super Bowl champion coach Mike Shanahan, is 23-25 in three seasons since being hired as the 49ers’ coach in February 2017. He led San Francisco to a four-win upgrade over its 2016 campaign during his first season in charge.  Prior to joining the 49ers, the younger Shanahan served as the Falcons’ offensive coordinator and played a key role in the team reaching Super Bowl 51 during the 2016 season. He was criticized for his play-calling late in the fourth quarter of that game after the Patriots completed a second-half comeback from a 25-point deficit to win 34-28 in overtime. The 49ers on Monday rewarded coach Kyle Shanahan with a multiyear contract extension following the team’s run to Super Bowl 54.The team did not disclose terms of the agreement, but Shanahan reportedly received a new six-year deal through the 2025 season that will replace the remaining three years on his original contract. Shanahan, 40, helped engineer the best reversal of fortune in franchise history when he guided the 49ers to a 13-3 regular-season record and two more wins in the NFC playoffs to reach the Super Bowl last season. San Francisco took a 10-point lead into the fourth quarter of that game before the Chiefs rallied for a 31-20 victory.last_img read more

‘World record holder at winning semi-finals’ – Klopp laughs off ‘unlucky’ tag

first_img– ‘Take that next step’ –Liverpool lost 3-1 to Real in Kiev last year, but Klopp was quick to point out how different his side is now, with Alisson Becker, Fabinho, Naby Keita and Xherdan Shaqiri all joining subsequently. Virgil van Dijk only moved to Anfield midway through last season.“We are much more mature, we are a different side, we are older. Age is a good thing, getting older, from all points of view actually.“We are a year older, a player like Trent (Alexander-Arnold) has around 50 more games in his legs with more experience in football.”Alexander-Arnold’s fellow full-back Andy Robertson has been another standout performer for Liverpool this season and the Scot emphasised the determination of the Anfield squad to help Klopp get his hands on his first trophy with the club.“Since he came here, he has changed how the club is and we obviously want to try to repay him with a trophy. Squads before came close and just fell short,” said Robertson, one of last season’s losing finalists who also lost a Scottish Cup final in his time with Dundee United.“It’s all about trying to take that next step. But it’s not just for him, it’s for the team behind it — the team behind the team — everyone at Melwood (training ground) and all our families.“We have all that to drive us forward. Of course, it would be nice to see him with his hands on the trophy.”Share on: WhatsApp FILE PHOTO: Jurgen KloppMadrid, Spain | AFP | Jurgen Klopp laughed off suggestions he is an unlucky manager as he looks to halt an unfortunate run of ending up on the losing side in his last six finals as a coach when he leads Liverpool into Saturday’s Champions League decider.“Since 2012, apart from 2017, I was every year with my team in a final, so we are getting there sometimes with luck in some moments, but most of the time because we had to go there,” Klopp told reporters at the Metropolitano Stadium in Madrid, where Liverpool will face Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.“I am probably at the moment a world-record holder, in the last seven years at least, in winning semi-finals, but if I wrote a book about that probably nobody would buy it.”This is the seventh final for a Klopp-led team to since his brilliant Borussia Dortmund side won a German league and cup double in 2012.He lost the 2013 Champions League final with Dortmund and the German Cup final in each of the following two campaigns.Klopp then lost the Europa League and League Cup finals in his first season with Liverpool, before being defeated in the 2018 Champions League final by Real Madrid.Liverpool also finished second to Manchester City in this season’s Premier League despite losing just one game and amassing 97 points. But the German insists it cannot all be about him.“I’m a normal human being, and if I would now sit in a room and think it’s all about me, I am the reason, if I would see myself as a loser or whatever, then that would be a problem. But I don’t see it like this.”Klopp, 51, added: “The things that happened in the past, for me I still got confidence I can take out of that, and could always, so it’s all good.“Now I understand luck — if you work for it, you have it from time to time, not always… but apart from that, no, it was not an unlucky career and it’s not over, I have still a few years!”last_img read more

Second M’town Drowning in a Month

first_imgBy John BurtonMIDDLETOWN – A Brooklyn, N.Y., man out for a day of 
swimming and boating drowned Aug. 26 in Sandy Hook Bay, according to
 a New Jersey State Police spokesman.Hector Yandun and family members were on a boat off of
 Monmouth Cove Marina, in the Port Monmouth section of Middletown. While swimming, Yandun suffered severe cramps at about 4:15 
p.m. Members of Yandun’s party told
 troopers that he had difficulty staying afloat, according to Lt. Stephen Jones.Family members eventually got Yandun onboard the boat and 
attempted to administer CPR but were unable to revive him. They 
also were unable to get the boat ashore because a section of rope 
attached to a life preserver had become entangled in the boat’s
 propeller, Jones said.
 Another boat in the area, operated by a volunteer fireman, came
 to their assistance and brought Yandun ashore, where the Port
 Monmouth First Aid Squad rushed him to Riverview Medical Center,
 Red Bank.
 Yandun was pronounced dead at approximately 4:47 p.m. His death
 has been tentatively labeled an accidental drowning, pending the 
outcome of the investigation, Jones said.It was the second drowning in this area this month. A Belford man
 drowned Aug. 2, off Ideal Beach, a short distance from the marina.last_img read more

Feeding the Wrong Wolf

first_imgWhen you feed fear, you only help it to grow in strength. The fear gets stronger. It is debilitating. Feeding fear is paralysis.When you feed anger, your anger only grows stronger. No one wakes up one morning and makes the decision to go through life angry and miserable. Day by day, without even knowing that they are doing so, they feed that anger until it grows more powerful. And then it takes over.When you feed the belief that is scarcity, all your eyes will allow you to see is scarcity. You will see that there isn’t enough, that you will never have more than you have now, and that the reason you don’t have what you want is because someone else is preventing you from acquiring it.Feeding the wrong wolf only increases its size, its power, and its control over you. You have to feed the right wolf.Feeding the Right WolfWhen you feed courage, your courage grows. Day by day, what used to make you recoil in fear doesn’t even make you blink. Courage isn’t the absence of fear. It’s the ability to take action in spite of your fear. That’s why it takes courage. Feeding the wolf that is courage allows it to defeat the one that is fear.Feeding caring and compassion allows the wolf that is love to destroy the wolf that is anger, envy, and resentment. The more you feed the right wolf here, the more you grow, and the more you contribute.The right wolf to feed is abundance. The belief that there is more than enough, that you can have all that you need, all that you desire, and that it is all within your power destroys scarcity (and with it fear and anger).You decide which of the two wolves you feed. The one you feed is the one that grows stronger.QuestionsWhich wolf are you feeding?What other wolves are you helping grow? Essential Reading!

Can You Change Your Mind?

first_img Get the Free eBook! Want to master cold calling? Download my free eBook! Many would have you believe that cold calling is dead, but the successful have no fear of the phone; they use it to outproduce their competitors. Download Now A few days ago, a reader of this blog made an observation. After reading the blog for years, he noticed that from time to time I have written that I have changed my mind about something that I no longer believe to be true. This reader thought that this was noteworthy because he believes it is rare for people to change their beliefs, and that it is more noteworthy that I would write it here, where other people could see it.The truth of the matter is that if your beliefs aren’t changing, you aren’t growing.Consistency and InconsistencyConsistency is a critical attribute. It makes you trustworthy, reliable. If people know what they can expect from you, that predictability makes you someone who can be counted on. Having a core set of beliefs and values that are stable over time is also important.Inconsistency in word and deed can make you look flaky, flighty, and sketchy. It’s difficult to put your trust in people who can’t be counted on from one day to the next. You are unreliable, and that makes you a risk.But there is something worse than being inconsistent, and that is being consistent when it no longer serves you.Turn and Face the StrangeYou live in a time of constant, accelerating, disruptive change. Things that were once true, are no longer true, and some are just “no longer.” The beliefs that once served you are now dangerous beliefs to hold, and beliefs that would have at one time seemed reckless are now a safer bet. If you are unable—or unwilling—to change your mind, then you are not growing.The reason I leave the archives up on this blog is because it is a record of my growth since 2008. My writing is much better, and you need only go back and read anything from 2010 to see just how true this is. But more important still, my ideas have gotten better.As I have had new experiences and made new distinctions. I have changed what I believe to be good, and true, and beautiful. I have changed what I believe about what it takes to succeed in sales, and that belief continues to change over time. I have changed what I believe to be the right approach for prospecting. I have changed long held beliefs about money and success. I have changed my ideas about jobs and works, about the sales process, as well as a lot more personal beliefs.I keep a running list of all of the beliefs I have changed over time. It’s a way to see the trajectory and the changes over time. It’s an exercise worth your time.If you haven’t changed something you believed to be true and worth defending in the last couple of years, you are stagnating.last_img read more

Harvey Has No Trouble With Curve

first_imgTweetPinShare0 Shares PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. — Mets ace Matt Harvey might be returning from elbow surgery with another nasty pitch.Throwing batting practice for the second time this spring, Harvey showed off an impressive curveball that neither David Wright or Curtis Granderson were able to hit.“I always threw sliders and I don’t know where this curveball came from, so it’s nice having that develop,” Harvey said. “I don’t know if I figured something out in my mechanics or it just magically appeared, but it’s nice having that and it felt good out there.”Overall Harvey threw 24 pitches, not including a pair of pitch-outs, to Wright and Granderson. Wright hit a line drive to center field and Granderson lofted a would-be single into left field.Harvey last pitched in a major league game on August 24, 2013, and had elbow-ligament replacement surgery two months later. He missed all of last season while rehabbing.The 25-year-old right-hander said he primarily was a fastball-curveball pitcher while at the University of North Carolina but has relied more on his slider since becoming a professional. According to Fangraphs, Harvey threw a curveball only 13.4 percent of the time in 2013.“It looked good,” Granderson said of the looping pitch. “It was down in the zone, which is exactly where you want it to be. It’s a pitch you can’t do too much with. No one in our hitting group was able to put a good swing on it — probably because it was down.”Mets Manager Terry Collins would like Harvey to use his curveball more this season.“I’m in a big believer in a curveball,” Collins said. “Sliders, obviously you can throw those a lot harder than a curveball, but the plane change on a curveball is a very, very good pitch and it takes less torque to throw a curveball. I always thought Matt had a very, very good one … and I think it’s a good pitch for him. When he’s got it, it’s a little something off his hard stuff that he can throw for strikes.”Harvey will make his Grapefruit League debut March 6 against the Detroit Tigers and is expected to throw 35-40 pitches. Detroit will start David Price, the 2012 American League Cy Young award winner.“We’re close,” Harvey said. “It’s exciting and, especially being 18 months from a competitive game, it’s a good feeling.”last_img read more
