‘I got to meet Lil Wayne’: 49ers’ George Kittle discusses post-Super Bowl party

Sep 4, 2020 at 6:50 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers held a massive party following their heartbreaking defeat in Super Bowl LIV. It was described as an "all-out rager" by TMZ Sports and featured Lil Wayne and DaBaby, who reportedly earned six-figures each for the performance.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan, as you probably know, is a big fan of Lil Wayne.

The party received mixed reactions from fans because the team had just suffered a fourth-quarter collapse against the Kansas City Chiefs and was partying as if it had won the big game.

But everything was probably already paid for and non-refundable, so why not?

Tight end George Kittle on Thursday was asked about the post-Super Bowl bash. He thanked the reporter for taking him back to the Super Bowl defeat and then discussed the party.

"Obviously, it sucks (to lose the Super Bowl)," Kittle said, "but at the same time, we did have a fantastic season. It obviously just didn't end the way we wanted it to end. But we did get to celebrate the whole season we had. We had 13 wins, we had home-field advantage, dominated the first rounds of the playoffs that we played in. So yeah, we celebrated that."

Not everyone was up for the party, though. Some players stayed away. Still, it was one last opportunity for the tight-knit group to be together that season. Little did the players know, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it would be their last time together until training camp.

Lil Wayne told Skip Bayless of FS1's Undisputed that he repeatedly stopped the show to half-jokingly make sure the 49ers wanted him to keep performing. They were, after all, coming off a devastating loss.

"The 49ers clearly had a let's-not-worry-too-much-about-it attitude about the game," said Bayless. "(Wrote Lil Wayne:) 'They truly believe they'll be back next year. The confidence, it was scary.'"

Kittle acknowledged that the party certainly would have been a lot more fun had the 49ers just emerged as Super Bowl champions.

"Was it as fun as it could have been? No, but I still enjoyed the hell out of it," Kittle added. "I got to meet Lil Wayne. That was on my bucket list. Now I have a selfie with Lil Wayne. I'll post that at some point in my life. I'm really looking forward to that.

"I had a good time with my teammates. I know not everyone showed up, but it was really fun to get up there and let it all loose and move on, honestly."

Joe Staley still mentoring George Kittle on becoming a better leader for 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers lost one of their most influential leaders on offense when Joe Staley retired this offseason. That doesn't mean the six-time Pro Bowl tackle, who spent his entire 13-year NFL career with the Niners, isn't still influencing his former teammates. After Sunday's embarrassing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins, Staley reached out to George Kittle and offered up some advice to the All-Pro tight end, who is always trying to evolve as a leader for his teammates. "[Staley] was just, 'Look, you have to hold people accountable, and you have to tell them that you have to hold them to the highest standard because that's what we've done for the last three years, is hold guys to an incredibly high standard,'" Kittle shared with reporters on Thursday. "I'm

While everyone proceeds to write off the San Francisco 49ers following a 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins, tight end George Kittle was excited to get back to work this week and prove critics wrong. The team hasn't won a home game this season and has the 4-1 Los Angeles Rams coming into town. Kittle has no shortage of confidence in his teammates and coaching staff. He feels the 49ers could be on the verge of turning things around, and that starts with a good week of practice, which will, hopefully, lead to a winning performance on Sunday night. "We had guys that came in today; I thought we had our best practice of the year today," Kittle told reporters today. "Guys were locked in. Our offense was humming. The O-line looked good. We had a great run period. The

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spoke with reporters after the team's 24-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams. Here is everything he had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. I know you guys were confident that you'd be able to bounce back, but being able to actually go out and do it, what do you think you learned about yourselves over the last week and coming away with the win tonight? "It was really just about coming into this game, you could feel in the locker room throughout the entire week, it was a different mindset that everyone had. The last couple of weeks before this, no one liked that feeling. It wasn't who we are as a team and I think this week it just kind of
