SHANNY over hyped the guy this last training camp... who he kidding??

he did this so that EL GATO can continue to look like a BUST, not that he's NOT, but it also doesn't help when the report coming out of training camp is that he's having a very good one... then you don't force feed him the ball??

DID you not see and say that he was having a very very good training camp?? how can you not get him the ball the way you did in OTAs?

or was Shanny just talking about offensive running plays w/no D?
Okay, I'm convinced. Kyle and John are sadistic and like torturing Pettis. They traded up in the second round to get him, played him his rookie year, then banished him from the NFL by letting him rot on the bench. They wont activate him on game day, but wont trade or release him. What a bunch of jerks.

Its puzzling to me how some players get all the excuses in the world (*cough* Jimmy *cough,* ) while others are fed to the lions despite having proven success at the NFL level (Pettis/Kap).

I really think there are some underlying biases that people aren't even aware they have. Its kind of a fact of life.

Kap has a bad game and sacked multiple times: Dude can't call protection at the line of scrimmage. He has no pocket awareness. Good QBs make their line better. His release is to slow.

Jimmy has a bad game and sacked multiple times: The line is trash. Jimmy needs more than four seconds to throw. Its not his fault he's got happy feet, his line wont block....



Sorry just venting on the inequities.

so far this season the only excuses I've seen and have used myself have been A. rust (i think idr) and B. his ankle.

oline has been trash almost all year except for the last game and maybe the Rams game

Says who? We don't know that we got any actual offers or not for him.

atrocious comparison. Pettis actually legit did something for a year. Jenkins never even got going.

they picked a bust and regretted it heavily. Thats why they tripled down and drafted Deebo, Hurd, and Aiyuk. It is what it is.

Poor little Dante. It's so sad he's making millions doing nothing. Kyle and lynch are such big meanies

Facts. And made CONSTANT remarks immediately after drafting them that they got the two toughest receivers in the draft class...dogs...a total shot to El Gato, IMHO.

Agreed. But Niner talk is good for those kinds of of comments. Pettis's 2019 season tops Jenkins time with the 49ers. It almost tops his entire career actually.
With the trade deadline approaching and several teams in need of receivers, I'll be surprised if someone doesn't make an offer. 6th or 7th rounder.

trade or cut, semantics at this point. Either one will produce little value.

Not really FACTS. If he's a bust, its because they made him that way. Despite your perception or opinion, El Gato actually had a GOOD year as a rookie when they used him. After that season he got literally three or four looks and never saw the field again. In contrast, Kendrick "oops I dropped it again" Bourne was allowed multiple chances while still being unproven and not that effective.'

The Niners screwed the first half of Dante's career. I hope he gets traded to a better situation and becomes the number two or three receiver he can easily be, given a legit chance.
