George Kittle is able to entertain the masses both with his production and sense of humor.
The San Francisco 49ers tight end did a lot of the same during a Week 7 win over the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
One entertaining moment, specifically, came when Kittle compared Sunday’s game to Star Wars, throwing out comical comparisons to both Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan.
“This is literally the good guys vs. the bad guys in Star Wars,” Kittle said, as seen in a snippet from NFL Films. “We got Senator Palpatine (Belichick) on the sidelines, Kyle’s Obi-Wan. We’re the (expletive) resistance, baby. This is the Death Star. Blow it up.”
You can listen to the portion at 3:30 of the video. (Disclaimer: There is some NSFW language included.)
Kittle and the 49ers ran over the Patriots in a 33-6 verdict. He shared a moment with ex-New England quarterback and current 49ers teammate Jimmy Garoppolo, too.
“Jim, I’ve had dreams about beating the Patriots, here, like this, for years,” Kittle said. “Years.”
The 4-3 49ers will turn the page to the Seattle Seahawks in Week 8 while the 2-4 Patriots will travel to the Buffalo Bills.
