49ers’ Joe Staley on win over Giants: ‘Just as good’ as winning NFC championship

One team’s soul-crushing defeat is another team’s uplifting moment. The San Francisco 49ers defeated the New York Giants to improve to … 1-9 on the season. But it isn’t just any win for 49ers tackle Joe Staley, one of only three players remaining on the 49ers roster from the 2012 team that made it to the Super Bowl.

“I’ve been part of a lot of wins with this franchise over the 11 years I’ve been here,” Staley said via the Mercury News. “This win felt just as good as winning the NFC championship.

“I mean, it was unbelievable,” he said. “Because I know how close this team is. On the outside looking in, we’re 0-9 and a young team. Not everybody sees what we see in the locker room. They don’t understand how close we are. No one has ever wavered. No one has ever pointed fingers. We’ve all just buckled down. That’s a tribute to Kyle [Shanahan] and the leadership group that he brought in.”

Kyle Shanahan’s first year as head coach has hardly gone according to plan, but Rome wasn’t built in a day. The 49ers are yet to play Jimmy Garoppolo, whom they acquired at the trade deadline, and the team is steeped in youth. Staley didn’t play against the Cardinals the week
