SANTA CLARA Adrian Colbert Jersey White , Calif. (AP) — When Kyle Shanahan was up for a head coaching job in the NFL two offseasons ago, he had one of his interviews in a very familiar place.Shanahan met with Denver general manager John Elway for about four hours to interview for a job his dad, Mike, held for 14 seasons, helping Elway and the Broncos win a pair of Super Bowl titles.Elway ended up giving the job to Vance Joseph in 2017 and Shanahan got hired by the San Francisco 49ers instead in what he believes is a better spot to make his imprint.“I’d like to say I made the decision pretty hard on them. I’d like to think that,” Shanahan said. “I didn’t think I had much chance before. I definitely am happy where I am, and I think it’s definitely a better situation not being there with my dad. Also, that’s my wife’s home. That’s my home. I enjoy going back there to visit, but I like living where I’m at.”Shanahan now gets the chance to coach against the franchise he spent so much time around as a kid when the 49ers (2-10) host the Broncos (6-6) on Sunday.Shanahan has plenty of memories from his time in Denver, especially being the “cord boy” in Denver’s 1998 Super Bowl win over Green Bay when he held the cords for his father on the sideline.“After that Green Bay Super Bowl, they went wireless the next year,” Shanahan said. “I think they only won one more because they didn’t have as good of a cord-holder, is what I always tell my dad.”Here are some other things to watch:UNDRAFTED GEMSTwo of the three undrafted quarterbacks to start a game in the NFL this season will square off on Sunday.Denver’s Case Keenum entered the league as an undrafted free agent in Houston in 2012 and emerged as a top-flight starter last year in Minnesota. He signed with the Broncos this year and has the team in position for a playoff run.San Francisco’s Nick Mullens entered the league last year as an undrafted free agent and was finally promoted from the practice squad in September after Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 3. Mullens has started four games and has the fifth-most yards passing since the merger in his first four career games with 1,147.“Being an undrafted guy, I’ve kind of, I guess you could say done some research on different guys’ paths and how they’ve made it Malcolm Smith Jersey White , how they’ve stuck around in the NFL,” Mullens said. “He’s definitely a guy that I’ve looked at his path, see how he’s gone. He’s a great quarterback.”UNDRAFTED GEMS PART 2Both teams will also feature undrafted starting running backs as well. Denver’s Phillip Lindsay has 1,126 yards from scrimmage this season, joining Dominic Rhodes (1,328), Clark Gaines (1,124) and LeGarrette Blount (1,021) as the only undrafted rookies to reach 1,000 yards from scrimmage.San Francisco’s Jeff Wilson gets his first start in place of another undrafted gem, Matt Breida, who is out with an ankle injury. Wilson rushed for 61 yards on 15 carries and caught eight passes for 73 yards in his most extensive action last week and is familiar with Lindsay as another undrafted player.“You know who the guys are,” Wilson said. “I know he’s a great back. He’s one of the best ones to me.”INJURY BUGThe Broncos got a tough break this week when leading receiver Emmanuel Sanders went down with a torn left Achilles tendon in practice on Wednesday. Sanders led the team with 71 catches for 868 yards and four touchdowns in a bounce-back year. His injury comes three days after star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. broke his leg, leaving the Broncos without seven starters from the opening-day lineup.“We can’t cry about it,” Joseph said. “We have to move on and go play a football game on Sunday.”SEARCHING FOR TAKEAWAYSThe 49ers are closing in on a record for ineptitude when it comes to causing turnovers. Their five takeaways through 12 games are the fewest ever at this point in the season, lowering the previous mark of seven by Jacksonville in 2016.San Francisco needs six takeaways in the final four games to avoid setting the mark of 11 for fewest ever in a non-strike season Jimmie Ward Jersey White , last done by Chicago in 2016. Welcome to Week 10 of the NFL season! The San Francisco 49ers host the New York Giants on Monday Night Football, with Nick Mullens making his second start and the 49ers defense looking to build on a strong effort against the Raiders. There are big draft pick implications, but the 49ers might just be able to get a win streak going.The 2018 NFL season is officially in full swing, which means regular season betting is back. I’m back for another year of picks in the Westgate SuperContest. SB Nation’s partners over at Odds Shark are sponsoring my entry again. The contest requires selecting 5 games each week and picking them against the spread. I went 3-2 in week 9, improving to 20-22-3 for the season. Overall for last week, I finished 7-6.I pondered taking the 49ers over the Giants this week as one of my SuperContest picks, but decided to stay away. I’m taking them in my full list of picks, but didn’t quite have the stones to pull the trigger as one of my five. I’ll get into more detail on Monday, but in the meantime, I like them against the spread because of the potential for the 49ers defense to pile up sacks and turnovers. Much like an olive jar, once you get that first one out, they can come in big numbers. The Giants offensive line is a mess, and I think we see the 49ers defense get at least two takeaways. I don’t know what to expect of Nick Mullens in his second start, but he couldn’t ask for a much better follow-up defense after what he saw from the Raiders.Here are my five SuperContest picks for Week 10:JETS (-6.5) over BillsJaguars (+3) over COLTSBENGALS (+5.5) over SaintsWashington (+3) over BUCCANEERSPACKERS (-9.5) over DolphinsI went 7-6 overall in Week 9.
