George Kittle summed up the 49ers’ final game of the year with a brutally honest assessment following Sunday’s 31–7 loss to the Eagles in the NFC Championship game.
The star tight end contributed three catches for 32 yards, but it could’ve been much better if the team did not have so many injuries to their QBs at the wrong time. Quarterback Brock Purdy suffered an early-game elbow injury and then backup Josh Johnson struggled mightily prior to exiting the game with a concussion.
Purdy was forced back into the game and the 49ers could only run the ball for the rest of the game.
After the game, Kittle lamented over his team’s quarterback woes by describing the tough loss as only he can.
“How does it feel to lose an NFC Championship game because I don’t have a quarterback? Pretty sh***y.”
