George Kittle has clearly embraced the tradition of the 49ers-Cowboys rivalry. San Francisco’s star tight end – who always manages to find new and interesting ways to have fun playing football – engaged in a little bit of the old-school trash talk that permeated the battles the two franchises have had going back to the 1970s and 80s. On Sunday Night, the man with Cero Miedo decided to partake in the party himself.
The 49ers delivered a 42-10 beatdown to Dallas, upping their record to 5-0 on the season. As usual, the 49ers’ weapons came out firing, with terrific young QB Brock Purdy tossing four touchdowns. George Kittle caught three of those scores and looked very much like the elite tight end that he is.
However, he wasn’t done there. He decided to give Cowboys Nation a little San Francisco treat.
Kittle was spotted on video captured by a fan in attendance at Levi’s Stadium that shows he was ready for the rumble. He had a “F*** DALLAS” t-shirt hidden under his uniform. He was more than happy that message to the people in the stands while celebrating the touchdown Jordan Mason scored to put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter.
For the 2023 season, Kittle is showing Pro Bowl form. He’s caught 17 passes for 215 yards and three touchdowns. Along with Kansas City’s Travis Kelce, he is considered one of the top two tight ends in the NFL.
George Kittle and his 49ers teammates will be road-tested over the next two weeks. They travel to Cleveland (2-2) in week 6 and then head to Minnesota to face the Vikings (currently (1-4), as they continue their drive for a spot at Super Bowl LVIII in Las Vegas.
