When 49ers He reinstated Jimmy Garoppolo’s contract to bring him back another year, all we heard was, ‘If you can keep Jimmy, you’ll keep him’, or something along the lines of it being the best thing the quarterback should go deep into.
Inevitably, there was a positive spin on the signature, despite both Garoppolo and Trey Lance saying all the right things.
Well, a week later, we’re starting to see the effects of Jamie’s comeback in the media. Peter King predicted Lance would lose his job by the seventh week on the job Football morning in America Monday morning column:
QB changes: Kenny Beckett For Mitchell Trubesky in mid-October, Drew Lock yo-yos with Jeno Smith Starting in late October, Jimmy Garoppolo for Tree Lance Before facing Kansas City in Week 7, Desmond Reader for Marcus Mariota In November, Tyrod Taylor for Daniel Jones in December. rusty Deshaun Watson He went 3-3 in his six games late in the season after suspension in Cleveland. These things happen when you haven’t played football for 100 weeks.
King later doubled down on the “I think” part, following the cliché, “This is a veteran team” in reasoning:
8. I think I don’t want to be negative intent here. I really don’t hate the San Francisco Convention to bring back Jimmy Garoppolo. But in the midst of all the cumbayas coming out of Oh, he’s cool, we’ve re-signed our lovable Jimmy, I wonder one thing: This is the veteran team that had a fight with Jimmy Garoppolo late last season and saw him beat the Rams in Week 18, then watched him be QB In winning playoffs in Dallas and Green Bay. how it’s going to be George Kettle And the Fred Warner And the Eric Armstead And the Debo Samuelall good players, react especially if Tree Lance Struggling the first month of the season? Will the Niners Command Council go to Kyle Shanahan And he says, “Come on. Shall we win these games?”
Garoppolo was part of the reason the Niners had to make a memorable comeback in Week 18. San Francisco scored three points at four possessions in the second half, including an interception. The second half went much better, but the Rams also scored a touchdown from another interception.
Why do we ignore it? Context is important because it helps paint a picture of what this team went through to reach the playoffs and reach the threshold of another team Energy. Pointing to the gains is slow, and it looks like we’ll have another season of that if Lance struggles.
Albert Breer from Sports Illustrated Try closing the book in a non-ideal scenario:
There is a lot on the line with the crew to worry about hurt feelings. And while I heard Lance was a little upset in the immediate aftermath, he’s a smart, mature kid that I think he can handle. The truth is, if he can’t, you may have bigger questions about where the Niners are in this situation.
Lance and Garoppolo can get along well and be great friends in the locker room and on the field. But there is no doubt that you, the quarterback, will be slightly annoyed at the prospect of a distraction.
Lance said last week that everything in training was normal with Garoppolo, which is probably true. But if we’re talking about a sophomore quarterback losing his job before he throws a pass, imagine that once he flips the ball or loses to a team that everyone thought 49 players should win.
