This is what you call prime bulletin board material.

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle issued a particularly brutal call out of his Pittsburgh Steelers counterpart T.J. Watt ahead of their Week 1 regular season opener on September 10. 

“If it comes to blocking, I’ll toot my own horn. That’s just stuff I practice my entire offseason. I take all the reps in-season. Like I’m very prideful when it comes to that stuff. When it’s like second down and they’re like, ‘Hey, it’s pass-15 weak, you’re one-on-one versus a Cam Jordan. You’re one-on-one versus T.J. Watt, go for it.’ I’m not like, ‘Yeah, like hey, he gets paid millions of dollars to rush the passer.’ But I look at it as an opportunity for me to be like, (scoffs) ‘You’re not going to be able to get past me,’ and I’m very excited about that,” Kittle said while speaking on "Pardon My Take".

You can bet that the 2021 Defensive Player of the Year will be gearing up to go after reading those words from Kittle, and he'll get an immediate opportunity to make him eat his words given that they'll both be seeing each other right off the bat in the 2023 schedule.

Who is going to come out on top in this battle?
