Zakk talks with San Francisco 49er Mike McGlinchey ahead of the last game of the 2020 season. When asked, why does a team want to win Week 17 when playoff dreams are shattered? “That’s just the point of competition. There is never a time you want to lose…it’s about pride, it’s about building things for the future, it’s about building for the right culture things within our organization.”
Kittle returns to the huddle this weekend, where Mike adds “he is one of our leaders…just having him on the field just gives us a big juice bump.”
Similar to Coach Shanahan, McGlinchey and the rest of the team will be having a lowkey New Year’s Eve – but he really can’t remember since the team is always ending up the season/preparing for playoffs.
