Niners star Kittle relishing competition on both sides of the ball

Tuesday, April 16th, 2019

George Kittle is relishing the added competition on the 49ers roster and has no problem with San Francisco potentially drafting players who could take catches away from him. Kittle was the focal point of the San Francisco offense last season, breaking the record for receiving yards in a single season by a tight end as he racked up for 1,377 despite playing for a Niners team that went 4-12 as an injury to starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo derailed their campaign. The former Iowa star demonstrated an excellent rapport with backups C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens but, with the Niners having reportedly been interested in Odell Beckham Jr. prior to his trade to the Cleveland Browns, San Francisco appear likely to be in the market to add a receiver in the draft.

The NFL Draft is largely mundane, yet fans can’t look away

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

Every team has the prospect of coming out of the NFL Draft with a star player added to their roster Parity is, of course, a key aim of a draft that allocates the first pick of the college players who declare (they have to be three years out of high school) to the worst team, and proceeds through the league in reverse order with the Super Bowl winner picking last in each of the seven rounds. This doesn't prevent teams like the aforementioned Patriots from winning consistently, or the likes of the Cleveland Browns and the Oakland Raiders from losing most of the time. You still have to pick the right players.

Monday, April 8th, 2019

Colin Jost and Michael Che got more than they bargained for when they agreed to be special correspondents for WrestleMania, WWE's biggest event of the year.

Unfortunately for the “Saturday Night Live” co-head writers and “Weekend Update” anchors, they got added to that match after angering WWE's Braun Strowman in recent weeks.
