Mack uses perfect movie quote after Aiyuk's redemption


There's a simple rule in society we should all be following: Whenever you can use a "Dumb and Dumber" quote, you do it. 

Alex Mack followed the rule to perfection after the 49ers' 31-13 blowout win over the Atlanta Falcons, finding the perfect quote for receiver Brandon Aiyuk. 

The second-year pro pulled the ultimate no-no as a receiver with a false start in the second quarter and the score tied at three. On the next play, though, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo found Aiyuk for a huge 36-yard slant. That's how to make up for a mistake. 

Or as Harry Dunne would say, that's how you totally redeem yourself. 

"I know you'll appreciate this," fullback Kyle Juszczyk said. "After the play, Alex Mack goes, 'And totally redeems himself!' I enjoyed that."

The catch and run was Aiyuk's only reception of the day, but it was a big one. Later in the drive, the 49ers scored their first touchdown of the day to take an early lead against the Falcons. 

Aiyuk has continued to be a bigger part of the offense as the season has gone on, and now has 42 receptions for 585 yards and four touchdowns this season.
