TE George Kittle: How high can Kittle actually go? We’ll just continue to watch and wonder as the dynamic fourth-year veteran soars through his record-shattering career. Say this about Kittle: The guy knows how to make a return. After missing two games with a sprained knee sustained in San Francisco’s season opener, Kittle was back in Week 4, and he relentlessly made up for lost time during a five-point loss to Philadelphia. Kittle finished with 15 receptions for 183 yards and a touchdown, becoming the first tight end in NFL history to record 15 or more receptions and 175 or more yards in a single game. Kittle’s 15 receptions also were a franchise record for a tight end, and the third-most ever for a San Francisco player in one game. Continuing his All-Pro performance, Kittle had another big game in Week 6 against the Rams with game-high totals of seven receptions for 109 yards, including a 44-yard touchdown reception that was his longest of the season.

It was a season to remember. It was a season to forget. Either way, you look at it, it was the strangest of seasons for San Francisco that you will ever see. Looking back at the year that was to illustrate that point, The Niner Report has assembled the best, worst and most unconventional of the 49ers’ 2020 season.

TOP 8 Worst encore seasons
There have been plenty of tough acts to follow in the history of the 49ers franchise with a team that has five Super Bowl championships, seven Super Bowl visits, 16 trips to the NFC Championship game, and 27 playoff appearances. That kind of success has seen the 49ers enter many seasons over the years looking to take the next step to greatness or simply maintain it. That makes them fall and crash even worse when San Francisco failed to achieve those goals coming off triumphant seasons. The 2020 49ers know all about it, which lands them a place on this list of the worst encore seasons in franchise history.
SEASON IN REVIEW
Did somebody say Super Bowl hangover?
After building the 49ers into NFC champions with young talent during their first three years together — when San Francisco had a total of 40 rookies see action from 2017-2019 — the team’s leadership tandem of general manager John Lynch and coach Kyle Shanahan found themselves with considerably less draft capital at their disposal in the fourth year of their partnership.

With the imminent departure of Robert Saleh during the offseason to a head coaching position elsewhere in the NFL, the 49ers will find themselves searching for a new defensive coordinator for the first time since 2017. With the defensive talent the 49ers have on hand, and San Francisco possessing a playoff-ready roster and one of the NFL’s most respected coaching staffs, the position will be attractive to a wide variety of candidates, including several veteran coaches who have had previous success in the league. Here’s a look at some top candidates who could be in the running to become San Francisco’s new DC in 2021.
TOP 10 Team executives
Achieving the highest level of success at every stop of his football lifetime, John Lynch climbed the ladder from collegiate star to nine-time NFL ProBowler to respected television analyst before he joined the 49ers as a first-time general manager in 2017. Since then, he’s become one of the men most responsible for building the franchise back into a champion with his shrewd moves and organizational acumen. Named the NFL’s 2019 Executive of the Year by the Pro Football Writers of America, Lynch has quickly earned his place on this list of the greatest team executives in 49ers history.
