    We could have had Kittle? He's one of my favorite players.

    By "it", do you mean a person, place or thing? By "trivia", do you mean the Cult of Diana?

    I'm OK.
    Lets be clear, not choosing Kittle over Jake was a terrible decision in hindsight.

    Yes, that's true and it could happen. We'll see how it goes for the whole team when the pads go on and the hitting begins.

    Some of George's success is due to Kyle Shanahan's O and some is the result of coaching, but George has studied and practiced hard and plays with intensity which results from his total commitment. He is a great player who has made a number of game changing plays in his career, so far.

    Not to be outdone, Kittle is now the highest paid TE. He and Kelce are on the top end of the scale and deservedly so. He's a real force, and SF should be in contention for many years, thanks to players of his caliber and drive, and a really good GM!
    I was hoping when KC won the Super Bowl that they would have to let a lot of guys walk once Mahomes got paid. Wasn't happy they got a deal done with Kelce. So happy to see Kittle get paid more than Kelce though... It just makes me feel happy. Kelce has always been one of those guys I just love to hate... With Kittle being 5 years and Kelce being 4, maybe it's not too big of a difference in long run, but still pleased that Kelce is less.
