Dante Pettis finally playing his brand of football

Dante Pettis finally playing his brand of football

49ers rookie receiver Dante Pettis talks ‘getting in the groove’ following Sunday’s overtime victory against the Seahawks. The San Francisco 49ers, in a season ravaged by injuries, have leaned on young and inexperienced players to find success late in the season. Among those playing a significant role is rookie receiver Dante Pettis. The 49ers’ second-round pick in this year’s draft has taken on a prominent role in Kyle Shanahan’s offense over his past five games, including Sunday’s overtime win over the Seattle Seahawks. After the game, Pettis spoke with the media about his...

Richard Sherman, Nick Mullens, DeForest Buckner, and others talk 49ers win over Seahawks

Several members of the San Francisco 49ers met with the media to go over the win over the Seattle Seahawks, here’s what they had to say. QB Nick Mullens Can you take us through that long pass to WR Dante Pettis in the fourth quarter that was right on the money? “Yeah, it was man coverage. It’s a play that we like against man coverage. As long as I just held the safety, then I like Dante on the matchup. He did a great job of giving me space to throw it and made a great catch with a wet ball. So, it was a great play.” Among the positive things CB Richard Sherman just had to say...

Matt Breida, Marquise Goodwin, Dante Pettis all expected to play vs. Seahawks

Good news for Nick Mullens! The San Francisco 49ers had some offensive question marks heading into Sunday’s Week 15 matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, but it appears most of the questions will be answered. Running back Matt Breida and wide receivers Marquise Goodwin and Dante Pettis were all listed as questionable, but all are expected to play, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Breida sat out last week’s game after aggravating an ankle injury that has plagued him much of the season. He was listed as limited all week, but head coach Kyle Shanahan felt good he would play vs. the...

Golden Nuggets: The rise of Arik Armstead

Golden Nuggets: The rise of Arik Armstead

San Francisco 49ers links for Friday December 14, 2018 Arik Armstead is having a very good season. If you don’t believe then check out Bret Rumbeck’s article below. Twenty four quarterback hurries and nineteen tackles for a loss are nothing to sneeze at. Mullens has a chance to be first 49ers quarterback to throw for over three hundred yards in three games in a row since Jeff Garcia did it way back during the 2000 season. I hope he lights Seattle up for another four hundred yards. Check it out below in Kyle Madson’s article on Dante Pettis. Perhaps our receivers aren’t as bad as...

3 names added to 49ers Week 15 injury report

The San Francisco 49ers went through their second practice of Week 15, and we saw some additions to the injury report, as well as some improvements. On the negative side, the 49ers added three plays to the injury list as limited participants in practice on Thursday. Defensive lineman Ronald Blair (groin), and wide receivers Marquise Goodwin (calf) and Dante Pettis (foot) were added to the report. Last week, nickel back K’Waun Williams (knee) was added on Thursday as limited, deemed questionable on Friday, and inactive on Sunday. We’ll see what the final report brings. Williams and edge...

Golden Nuggets: Pierre Garcon on IR

Golden Nuggets: Pierre Garcon on IR

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Tuesday, December 11th, 2018 So Pierre Garcon has hit IR. I know a lot criticize the signing when it happened, but the 49ers needed a decent wide receiver and who else were they going to get to come here? The dead money is a detriment, but that’s what a team in the 49ers’ position has to do to get any free agents out here. I don’t see Garcon on the roster next year. The 49ers have gotten younger and better with Dante Pettis and Kendrick Bourne and Father Time is unbeaten in Garcon’s case. He may have played his last season in a 49ers uniform, but...

49ers inactives open the door for some useful evaluations in Week 14

49ers inactives open the door for some useful evaluations in Week 14

The San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos released their inactives for Week 14, and there are no real surprises for Kyle Shanahan’s squad. Matt Breida, Pierre Garçon, and Jaquiski Tartt are all inactive after being ruled out on Friday. Jeff Wilson will start in Breida’s place, Dante Pettis will likely start opposite Marquise Goodwin, and Marcell Harris should get another start at strong safety. K’Waun Williams is inactive with a knee injury, which means rookie D.J. Reed is likely to get the start in the slot. That would mean Antone Exum starts at free safety. Pita Taumoepenu is...

Breaking down WR Dante Pettis’ breakout performances the last two games

Breaking down WR Dante Pettis’ breakout performances the last two games

Pettis is finally healthy and it’s starting to show on the field. After trading up to the second round to take wide receiver Dante Pettis, the 49ers seemingly had one of their core playmakers moving forward. However, through nine weeks, Pettis only had three catches for less than 100 yards combined. It was turning out to be a disappointing, injury-ridden rookie campaign that was going to leave a sour taste in 49ers’ fans mouths. Yet, the last two weeks have been a coming out party for Pettis, adding nine catches on 14 targets, for 206 yards, including three touchdown grabs. With every...

Dante Pettis nominated for Rookie of the Week award

The rookie receiver is building momentum! The San Francisco 49ers have struggled to get much of anything going, but the past couple weeks, wide receiver Dante Pettis has started to emerge. He had four receptions for 77 yards and a touchdown in Week 12, and he followed that up with a career high five receptions for 129 yards and two touchdowns. That latter performance is getting Pettis some recognition this week. He has been nominated for the Pepsi Rookie of the Week award. This is a fan-voted award, but it is still cool to see him getting recognized for excellence. Other nominees include...

Did Dante Pettis celebrate with a Hadoken or a Kamehameha?

This is the biggest question to be solved after 49ers-Seahawks The San Francisco 49ers took a beating on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, but there were some hallmarks. One of the highlights from the 49ers offense was this gem from Nick Mullens to Dante Pettis. While the touchdown itself speaks all things of awesome, it’s the celebration at the end that has me scratching my head.

Dante Pettis had another huge game against Seahawks

Dante Pettis had another huge game against Seahawks

That’s two games in a row he’s been looking sharp. When Marquise Goodwin was excused for personal reasons and Pierre Garçon went down with injury, all eyes went to Dante Pettis to step things up for the wide receiver corps. He did just that when the 49ers went up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he once again turned in a great performance against the Seattle Seahawks. Last week it was 77 yards and a touchdown. This week, 129 yards and two touchdowns. A lot of Sunday’s yards come from the 75-yard catch-and0run that Pettis had in the middle of the field thanks to a perfect Nick...
