George Kittle says 49ers offense has ‘weapons all over the field’

Oct 8, 2020 at 4:11 PM--


Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores was asked this week about San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle. The Dolphins defense is tasked with trying to stop the Niners All-Pro, who is widely considered the best tight end in the game.

Flores acknowledged that stopping Kittle, who exploded on Sunday night for 183 receiving yards and a score, is nearly impossible.

"I don't think you stop him," Flores told 49ers reporters. "I think you just try to limit him. You try to give him different looks. ... When you've got a player like this, you've got to think about doubling a guy like this."

The Dolphins coach also noted that focusing on stopping or even limiting Kittle potentially opens things up for the other offensive weapons at the 49ers' disposal.

Kittle agrees.

On Thursday, the tight end was asked about Flores' comments and immediately discussed the 49ers' weapons and how much he enjoys being part of such a talented offense.

"We have a lot of weapons from our backfield to our wide receivers, tight ends," Kittle said. "I mean, even our run game; we've got weapons all over the field. It's fun to be a part of that offense. You can double me, you can hold me to a couple of catches and some yards; that is what it is. I'm still going to impact the game in the run game.

"We've still got wide receivers like Deebo (Samuel), [Kendrick Bourne], (Brandon) Aiyuk, Trent Taylor. We've got guys out there that can ball and make plays. And our backfield is pretty scary when everyone's healthy.

"We have a lot of weapons, and I'm excited to see each week how defenses game plan for us, and how we game plan for them. I'm looking forward to this weekend too because I really like the game plan, and I'm excited to run the ball (as an offense) a little bit."

There's been a lot of discussion surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo this season. Will he be with the team next year? Will the 49ers replace him with a draft pick? Tight end George Kittle has identified one area in which Garoppolo has improved this season. Although, it probably won't factor into any decision San Francisco makes regarding the quarterback's future with the team. One fan asked Kittle via an Instagram Q&A if Garoppolo has texted him back. "Guys, I really approached the concern," Kittle responded. "Jimmy G has text me back. Actually, it's really escalating, and the amount of messages I get now is at an all-time high. I'm going to do my best to manage and reply to each one of those

Kyle Shanahan praises Kerry Hyder, says D-lineman has saved injury-ravaged 49ers

There is no doubt that injuries have played a significant role in the regression of the San Francisco 49ers this season. As Bleacher Report stated in its most recent power rankings, "The Super Bowl hangover has claimed another victim." The defensive line, a strength last season for the defending NFC champions, is among the groups that have been transformed due to injuries. It is almost unrecognizable from the unit that helped lift the team to 13 wins and the division crown last season. Gone are DeForest Buckner, who was traded, Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas, who

Film From the Field House: Scripting the San Francisco 49ers' Opening Offense Against the Los Angeles Rams

The San Francisco 49ers are coming off a late-season bye week and still have an outside shot at the playoffs. It's a strange thing to type, considering the men wearing the intersecting letters on their helmets do not resemble a real threat to any opponent. Yet, the 49ers have shown some fight. Against the New Orleans Saints, the 49ers opened the game dominating on both sides of the ball. The offense held the ball for 13:39 minutes, running 23 plays for 83 yards. On the flip side, the 49ers' defense held the Saints to 8 yards in the first quarter. Overall, the defense kept two Saints quarterbacks under 150 yards throwing, and the Saints rush game to 114 yards. Unfortunately, these are small diamonds buried in a constant shovel load of dung. The 49ers
