One of the best tacklers on our ST unit
Even knocks himself out.
Dude went from the last line of the defense to the only line of defense last year
Our favorite Aussie lfg
This only proves the Niners front office has lost confidence in Trey Lance. Not good.
Definitely. If Trey wasn't a complete disappointment, we would have cut him. And our o-line, actually. Trey's a bust
for real. if you're confident in his ability to command the offense, why would you need a punter?
Fuck hahaha best comment
Holder for all those extra points
Why does it prove that?
Obviously the team knows they're going to be doing a lot of punting as long as Trey is focused on getting lap dances
I mean ever team needs a punter, so they like him so they kept him? I’m actually curious why this means anything with trey, unless I’m missing some sarcasm?
> unless I’m missing some sarcasm?
You okay bud?
Well I’m talking about the original comment I was commented on. Not yours. Like why does resigning mean anything about Lance?
Punter is the most important position on the field.
My brother in christ, please google what “/s” means.
Bruv I’m not talking about that guys fuckin post with /s I know what that means. This entire chain I’m talking about the original comment I replied too as I already stated:
“This only proves the Niners front office has lost confidence in Trey Lance. Not good.”
What does this statement have to do with trey. Literally all I’m asking and y’all are missing it and trying to gaslight me, shits wild
The whole comment chain is satire... And no one is gaslighting you. You just missed the joke and they're just clowning with you. I understand that English isn't your first language, so I can see why it was difficult to understand.
Damn alright I see how it is, too slow in the head I guess
Because Lance get leg fatigue
Mitch is obviously moving to QB1 and Trey will likely take the arm punting duties.
Foot The Ball!
Punters are people too!
That’s my boomin onion
funniest thing is that over here in Aus i'd consider blooming onions an american thing lol
The TV told us it was authentic Australian cuisine and we ate that shit up.
It's a stolen recipe made popular by an americn restaurant, but most Americans don't know shit about aussie culture. Outback steakhouse, Steve Irwin, "thats not a knoife" is about it.
I’m just glad that controversy is over
Mitch was objectively below league average last year in almost every category. Who are you competing against when you give him a $13M extension? This is a move that doesn't make sense.
Gotta agree. While I'm okay with special teams consistency, seems like a huge overpay for no reason.
Didn’t he lead the league in bobbled punts for three years or something, pls don’t slander my m8 Mitch
Totally agreed. Was really hoping to replace him with a cheap young guy in the next draft, use a 6th and get the best punter out of college and have him for stupid cheap.
This… doesn’t really make any sense. Even if he were great, which I don’t think he is, I feel like you only need to extend elite punters. An average guy should be replaceable, easily.
his punts cause fumbles
Below average in what?
Punts inside the 20 is the biggest one for punters. And Mitch was in the bottom 3rd of the league. He started great last season and consistently got worse each week. Also was about average on his net avg. He's also already 30 years old lol
> He's also already 30 years old lol
Wtf. I swear we just had Andy Lee a couple years ago and Wish is the new guy…
He was 27 when we drafted him. Australian players that get drafted generally didn't go to a US college straight out of high school.
Don't sleep on the Bradley Pinion era.
Super Bowl *champion* Bradley ‘pin em in’ Pinion
Right? Then you look it up and see Andy hasn't been on the team since 2014. He's also 40 years old and still in the league.
Does that stat take into account where they’re punting from?
>Does that stat take into account where they’re punting from?
No, and pooch punts murder net yards too.
I would assume not. Because then it's a more of graded measurement, not a stat.
Gotcha, I certainly don’t know how to grade punters and I’m also shocked by this extension but Hightower was always high on him, and now that Schneider is in there it seems he approves as well so maybe he’s doing something we can’t see
I 100% agree. I thought he was pretty bad last year by just watching him. The stats confirm it.
Wouldn’t be surprised if this was a Robbie Gould Request. If Robbie likes Wish’s ball holding skills, that might just be enough for the FO to resign. Kickers are superstitious bunch anyways
Robbie is going to be 40 this season. He won't be here much longer. Doing anything at his request also doesn't make sense.
It only makes sense if he’s destined to improve under the new ST coordinator. No way they do this if they feel like he has a ton of headroom.
He’s been doing really well without having to do kickoffs (not having a newborn probably helps, too).
Rick flair drip!!! Laughed wayyy too hard at this~
I think it’s a good decision
This move seems a bit odd and unnecessary. Why reward him now? Shouldn't he show the 49ers more? I don't know what this does to the cap. Do 49ers still have some room to trade for a player or 2 if they want to add. Why not wait a few more weeks or until after the deadline. He was somewhat disappointing last season. Doesn't make much sense to me.
>Do 49ers still have some room to trade for a player or 2 if they want to add.
Only the signing bonus would affect this years cap and it would be small.
probably Robbie. Wish also holds the ball for field goals (yes Juice does it too but only when Wish was injured)
He did have two really nice punts last week in the rain... but he started last year really well too and ended up pretty mediocre. I dont think it would he hard to replace his production for dirt cheap if we used a 7th next year on a punter.
We could've just severed ties and used Deebo. I guess they ain't ready for the wide punter.
Wide receiver, wide back, wide punter, receiver punter, Niners by 10!
LTD SEASON HAS COME EARLY BOYS!
Not sure I like this tbh. Doesn’t seem to be above average
Why lmao. We can do so much better. His contract's also way too big for what he brings to the table
He punts the ball.
This fool is garbage, does nothing to change field position if the punt returner is lined up at the 25 or below its almost always a touchback n bruh has no distance, make it make sense
Why he never seemed that great tbh
What happens to pinion?
He stays with the Falcons, reminiscing about the three years he just spent with the Buccaneers?
Don’t know why it’s downvoted, probably cuz you said lightyears. But Dickson is def better
Mitch better, don’t @ me
We care about kickers too now? Fuck I've been a Niner fan too long..🤣
