Everybody needs a George Kittle in their life.
No matter what Jimmy Garoppolo did in 2019 or going forward, he did and will continue to face criticism from the media for whatever reason, but his tight end has his back.
Kittle joined Stephen A. Smith on ESPN’s First Take on Tuesday to talk some football, but when Smith argued that Jimmy G’s name wasn’t the first player he thinks of when he speaks on the 49ers — Kittle fired back.
“How is that his fault? It’s not his fault he’s on a really good team with good football players and a great head coach,” Kittle said on First Take. “He got us to the Super Bowl, so that’s what I’m saying. It’s not his fault he has Nick Bosa, he has five first-round D-linemen, he has Richard Sherman in the secondary. That’s not his fault. He goes out there and he performs week in, week out.”
Many assumed the 49ers would go out and try to sign Tom Brady, but the powers to be in the 49ers front office were not giving up on Jimmy G after he took the team to a Super Bowl just last season.
