They need to change the way they use Kittle If they have any sense. He'll be toast in two years if they keep using him like he's an offensive lineman. Need to be smart and protect him from himself, get some other scrub TE to do the blocking work. Use him more ike Chiefs do Kelce.Yep, put up the shutters and start looking to 2021 off-season. These lower leg injuries are beyond a joke.
But I have a theory, I think in part it is because the way Shanahan's offense works....there are so many moving parts to the offense, that even if your not the designated receiver/runner on the play because of the role the rest of the offense is supposed to block, run decoys etc they are more susceptible to being hit and injured.
Well last week was a bye week, but the Rams fall over again. Can't believe they lost to us twice this year.Crazy after the garbage served up that they look good against a rams team that's been ticking along nicely.
The whole season is a bit upside-down so there will be plenty of surprising results still to come.
As long as there is a better replacement.The Niners know Garoppolo isn't a game-changer at the position, and coach Kyle Shanahan refused to fully commit to Garoppolo being back as the starter in 2021. He has two years left on his deal, but the Niners can clear $24.1 million in cap space by releasing Garoppolo this offseason, absorbing a dead cap hit of just $2.8 million. It almost seems like a no-brainer move.
