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
I don't get how anyone can use rust as an excuse for Jimmy. He had the same shortened offseason as everyone else in the NFL yet other teams QBs came to play and won. And two, he was playing, and practicing for that matter, football up until February 2020 because the Niners were in the Super Bowl while 30 other teams were at home or on vacation. His ankle on the other hand, legitimate.

And to Oakland Niner, not sure if you intended for this to be conveyed, but it sounds like you are indicating that Jimmy doesn't have proven success in the NFL. He has the same amount of success as Kap does in the NFL at the moment.

Okay, I'm convinced. Kyle and John are sadistic and like torturing Pettis.

They wont activate him on game day, but wont trade or release him. What a bunch of jerks.

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

Dont hate. Its all relative. Just because you can't make a million dollars doesn't mean he doesn't deserve it. Dudes in the NFL. Almost nobody even makes it. If you're in, you are an elite athlete and stud in your profession. "bust or not," being picked in the second is worth something. NFL makes Billions. He's one of maybe 1700 guys to share the pie. He deserves his cut.

Stop being salty.

Who's being salty here lol
Trade this guy immediately for John Ross.
If this guy cannot be traded, then I want him to get a legit shot at PR and KR. The 49ers returners are straight trash, and any special teams advantage this team can get will only help.



I wonder how come he hasn't gotten a legit shot as a returner?

Isn't it obvious at the point bro?

He's soft and afraid to get hit by grown men in the NFL.

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

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

Cut provides no value while a trade provides something of value in a pick or a player. Little value is still better than no value.

He is on borrowed time and won't be here much longer.

* Maybe to you, but not in my eyes. Jimmy was used primarily as a prop through the playoffs and the Super Bowl. Then when Kyle did call his number towards the end of the game, he failed to hit a wide open Sanders which would have sealed it.

* In contrast, Kap was an integral and dominate part of our playoff run and SB comeback. In fact, he actually would have won the game if dumb Harbaugh didn't call a time out when Kap was on his way to running into the endzone….

So for me, its not even close. With that said, I'll leave this discussion alone.

I think a trade for Pettis goes down tomorrow - because of the Covid, they say they have to get trades through before the Nov. 3rd deadline.

I wanted him to upgrade our pr game after all he is the ALL TIME record holder innNCAA history. Even if he's scared, he had bodies flying at him in college. It's not like 20-30 pound heavier bodies on average in the nfl causes him to be scared s**tless.

We haven't had a returner since Ginn. That's why I was exited about Austin

I'm with you - so, why hasn't Kyle made him solely a return man?
