Mike Ditka, the legendary former coach of the Chicago Bears, called into ‘Joe, Lo & Dibs” and offered high praise for Kyle Shanahan.

Shanahan’s Niners are 4-10 in his sophomore season but sporting a modest two-game win streak after toppling the Seahawks, 26-23, in overtime in Week 15.

“I think Kyle’s done a great job with this football team,” the Pro and College Hall of Famer said on 95.7 The Game. “I really do. They’re a good, good football team. How good? I don’t know.”

“They probably need a few things right now,” Ditka continued. “But I watched them play a couple of games (and) I was very impressed with the way they played. They’re well-coached. They try to do the right thing. And that’s all you can do.”
