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."

Kittle on the offense starting to gel "I think there's still a lot of mistakes for us to correct, but our overall confidence as an offensive unit, like playing together, 11 guys working towards

49ers-Patriots: Bill Belichick says George Kittle 'doesn't have any weak points,' opts not to discuss Jimmy Garoppolo trade again

Jimmy Garoppolo played his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons with the New England Patriots under coach Bill Belichick. The Patriots traded him to the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. Garoppolo became the starter for the 49ers, signed a five-year contract during the ensuing offseason, and last season led the team to a Super Bowl appearance. Belichick, while speaking with 49ers reporters via a conference call on Monday, was asked what he's seen from Garoppolo's development since the trade. "Well, we haven't played him since then," Belichick responded. "I haven't really studied him, but we'll take a close look. But I mean, it just looks like about what I thought it would like. I mean, he's a quality player. The 49ers gave him a high contract that, you

George Kittle says 49ers will rely on 'smash-mouth football' vs. Patriots, not Jimmy Garoppolo's inside knowledge

Jimmy Garoppolo spent three-and-a-half seasons with the New England Patriots before a mid-season trade in 2017 sent the quarterback to the San Francisco 49ers. Garoppolo not only learned the ins and outs of the Patriots defense from future Hall of Famer Tom Brady and practices against it, but he studied under the tutelage of defensive mastermind Bill Belichick. None of that may help the 49ers this weekend when they travel to Gillette Stadium to face the Patriots. Tight end George Kittle was asked on Thursday if he has sought any information from Garoppolo on what to expect on Sunday. "Insider trading information?" Kittle asked. "A little bit. I mean, they've changed up a lot. They've got different personnel there. Other than the fact that there are probably going
