I'm so pumped for this season. Really hoping we finally get some luck in the health department to see this young group play together and grow together.

Pettis is not your typical football player but Vernon Davis had his share of interests and nobody questioned him(until Chancellor took his soul) but seems like cuz Dante is a little more vocal about his non football interests and his slim build and blue/pink hair he's somehow seen as soft.

Clearly he's working on himself as a football player even though it's not all over his social media. I'm excited to see him grow this season and I think he's going to have a big year assuming he and Jimmy stay healthy.

Meh I think we just poking fun and messing around about the kid, I'll speak for myself and say that's what it is for me. More power to him for being who he is no matter the environment. End of day we all root for the same team and what matters most is what the players do on the field.

If you say so :)
Dante on adding more weight and strength, working on contested passes, punt returns, consistent routes, Wes's influence, etc. Good stuff. Good kid.

He's 10 pounds heavier now than last season. 197 vs 187. That will help.
Nice Q&A. Seems like guy who puts in the work to get better. Also Didn't seem like a guy scared to return punts .

He certainly didn't seem too excited about it either IMHO but I do hope he wins over Taylor and others and he killed the narrative that Kyle is protecting skill positions from return duties. Glad he recognized his weaknesses in size/strength and contested (attacking) catches and needing more consistency in his routes. Narratives confirmed. Good for him!

He's more like Puss in Boots. Can slice and dice like the best, but just flamboyant enough to make you wonder 🤔

Glad he confirmed it was kyles call and not that he was scared. Also glad to see what a hard worker he is and a guy that takes in what his coaches give him and uses that to improve

On his tweet, he was just referencing the fact that it is scary. 250 pound men running 4.5's at top speed looking to take your head off as for some players (like Mostert), that's the only action they get so they're even more motivated. I brought it here because that's also a mindset too and one I wanted to monitor as a concern. Even here he's like, "I'm not opposed to it." LOL...not exactly a ringing endorsement of desire to do it compared to the dog-mentality Deebo had when talking about returning. It sounds like he'll do it but it's not exactly a preference or desire for him.

As to the rest, yeah he's growing up. It was a whirlwind last year, he got challenged and we've added competition and he's working hard on his weaknesses. What more can you ask for? He could take a huge leap forward this year.
