Coach Shanahan had NEVER before attempted a fake field goal:
"Part of the reason is that I don't want to take a chance of getting the kicker hurt... Jason assured me that he would not be hurt."
Elam had two great quotes responding to questions after the game:
"I'm not kidding, 12 years. I didn't think he would ever, ever run it. He actually told me earlier in the week, he said, 'Now, you can't pull a hamstring on this."and
"I think it's probably just that I hadn't run in a long, long time."via The Daily Herald
