“It’s Actually Mad Unfair”: George Kittle’s Comments on Brock Purdy’s 49ers Future Inadvertently Puts Trey Lance’s Job at Jeopardy

Brock Purdy has been a hidden gem for the San Francisco 49ers. He has gone from Mr. Irrelevant to leading the ailing 49ers all the way to the NFC Championship Game. Even though the inexperienced quarterback was not able to lead his team to the Super Bowl, he proved his mettle as he picked up after Jimmy G and Trey Lance. He earned the respect of all of his teammates. This was very clearly visible from the 49ers’ tight end, George Kittle’s recent words. However, Kittle’s words might not be the most respectful for the 49ers’ most underrated QB, Trey Lance.

Bleacher Report Gridiron put up an interesting tweet that showcased a video of Kittle on a podcast, speaking about Purdy’s excellence. However, he also had some mentions of Trey Lance that seemed to have rubbed off the fans in the wrong way.
