It seems like the San Francisco 49ers aren’t feeling a lot of pressure ahead of Super Bowl LIV. On Friday, during their final practice before the big game, the players pulled off a trick by swapping jerseys to fool their coaches.
“They surprised us with it,” head coach Kyle Shanahan said per NBC Sports Bay Area. “They are loose and feeling good, and they had fun with it. We’ll see how it is when we watch film.”
Per the pool report, here’s who swapped with whom: “rookie defensive end Nick Bosa swapped uniforms with safety Jimmie Ward, tailback Tevin Coleman switched with fullback Kyle Juszczyk, and George Kittle donned fellow tight end Levine Toilolo’s No. 83.”
Of course Bosa and Kittle were in the middle of it all. They may be young, but they’re also two of the team’s most electric stars and lead by example every single week.
Clearly, these guys are not stressing ahead of Super Bowl LIV. Whether it helps them bring home the Lombardi Trophy remains to be seen.
