SANTA CLARA — The 49ers had precious little time to bask in the glory of a historic victory in the NFC Championship Game.
On Monday, she returned to work.
Coach Kyle Shanahan concluded a meeting with the 49ers' quarterbacks room to go over all of Brock Purdy's snaps from the team's 34-31 win over the Detroit Lions.
Five minutes later, he was on a conference call with Bay Area reporters.
“We finished the tape,” Shanahan said. “It's really hitting me now, but we're done with yesterday too. It's time to move on.”
The technical staff reviewed all the educational points from Sunday’s match with the players. Then there were some off-field matters to deal with before the players were released for the next two days.
“Our guys will have some Super Bowl reunions for their families with tickets and all that stuff to get rid of all that,” Shanahan said. “Because that can be very stressful if you don't handle your business today and tomorrow.”
While the 49ers have days off on Tuesday and Wednesday, Shanahan and his staff will meet to formulate their game plan to face the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII on Sunday, February 11 in Las Vegas.
Presidents have made this an annual habit. Andy Reid's team qualified for its fourth Super Bowl in five seasons with a 17-10 win over the AFC's top-seeded Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
Shanahan has been here before, too.
He was the offensive coordinator for the Atlanta Falcons seven years ago in their Super Bowl appearance.
In his third season with San Francisco, the 49ers reached Super Bowl LIV, where they lost to Kansas City.
The 49ers will structure the week to get most of their preparation done well before traveling.
The team will practice Thursday, Friday and Saturday, as if they were preparing to play this weekend.
With so many forces pulling in different directions in Super Bowl town, most of the work needs to be done at the team's facility in Santa Clara before they leave for Las Vegas on Sunday.
“When I was growing up, all the bands I talked to, that was one of the biggest things,” Shanahan said. “When you're waiting to do things there, it gets very hectic.
“You can always change things up and tighten things up, but you want to get most of your hard work done before you get there.”
