The SF 49ers lost one of the ugliest games in the Kyle Shanahan era, falling to the visiting Dolphins 43-17 in Week 5. Time to muscle through the grades.

The optimistic SF 49ers fan would try passing what happened to head coach Kyle Shanahan’s squad in Week 5 during their lopsided loss to the visiting Miami Dolphins as a fluke, perhaps nothing more than the inevitable defeat when a team has suffered a ton of injuries on both sides of the ball.
