    Shanahan delegates offensive duties to 49ers staff

    SANTA CLARA – Kyle Shanahan will retain the role he held the past nine seasons in his first year as head coach of the 49ers. Shanahan eschewed the formality of naming an offensive coordinator because he will keep those duties for himself.

    Last week, we found out you guys despise the Patriots and Packers the most, when it comes to out-of-division opponents. Now, the real test — who do you sports-hate most passionately within the division? If this poll is taken in 2012 or 2013 you know it’s the Niners in a landslide. If it’s in 2017 the final result is more opaque. I predict all three teams will pass 25 percent. Which seems healthy. The Rams have Rams’d their way into Seahawk hatehood with improbable victories (the 2015 opener and Christmas upsets come to mind) and proved to be annoying even in defeat (14-9 anyone?). The Cardinals upended the Seahawks in Seattle in 2013 and 2016, though their visit here in 2012 was about, oh, 59
