Congratulations are in order once again for San Francisco

Postby liny195 » Wed Aug 14, 2019 11:25 pm

49ers tight end George Kittle. On Friday Jerry Rice Jersey White , the Pro Football Writers of America announced that Kittle has been voted Most Improved Player for 2018.There is no word on who else received votes, but considering Kittle’s season, it’s not surprising he got the nod. He set the NFL record for most single-season receiving yards by a tight end with 1,377, while breaking the 49ers single season yards and receptions by a tight end record. He led the NFL in yards after the catch, just ahead of Christian McCaffrey and Saquon Barkley. He also finished second to Julio Jones among all pass catchers in Pro Football Focus’ yards per route run stat.It was a dominant breakout year, and it came in spite of working with three different quarterbacks and not having a consistent second option in the passing game to take away pressure. Kendrick Bourne and Dante Pettis had their moments and are intriguing options moving forward Tom Rathman Jersey , but Kittle had to do a lot of this on his own in 2018. Kyle Shanahan deserves a ton of credit for his play-calling, but Kittle showed what he can do when healthy.Back in October, Shanahan was asked about the leap Kittle was already making at that point and what led to it.Health has been a big part of this. Kittle was banged up off and on throughout his rookie season, but he was healthy for the most part this past season. He suffered a knee injury in Week 5 and a chest injury in Week 9, but neither nagged through the season, at least as far as the injury report was concerned.The 49ers head into the 2019 offseason looking to add another playmaker to complement Kittle. They’ll hope for a bounce-back year from Marquise Goodwin, and will hope for growth from Bourne and Pettis , but it would not be surprising to see them look for a solid pass catcher, whether it be at wide receiver or tight end. The Oakland Raiders opened Thursday Night Football moving the ball with relative ease into the San Francisco 49ers red zone. A holding call set up a 2nd and 22, and they ended up settling for a field goal. It seemed like this was going to be a tough contest out of the gate.Except that drive was the highlight of the game for the Raiders.The 49ers ran off 34 unanswered points. Nick Mullens had one of the greatest debut performances in NFL history. The 49ers had seven sacks after entering the game with 16 total through the first eight games. Everything that could go right for the 49ers did go right.It is not surprising that after the game, 49ers players had this to say.The Raiders were a mess most of the evening, but one play in particular showed how bad it was. Running back Raheem Mostert took a pitch to the right and rumbled 51 yards for the touchdown. Mike McGlinchey had a great block on it, and Mostert made some solid moves, but watch how bad the Raiders look on the play.I don’t want to take away too much from the 49ers performance , but the Raiders really did not seem to give a crap about being out there. I realize some of their players were likely giving their all, but the team as a whole seemed fine just quitting and heading back to Oakland as soon as possible.The 49ers looked great in winning, and deserve plenty of credit for game-plan and execution. But the Raiders really didn’t want to be there.
